A Great Day!

I made this collage to commemorate the great day we had as a family.

There was only the three of us as my first son moved too far away and began his new life.
But we had fun anyway with the Canucks, Lakers, and most of all , being a little spoiled by my two men one of which is my most favorite soccer player in the whole world.

My husband worked most of the day to create a beautiful table. As you can see, a few red blooded friends were invited
to share our table . lol
They were a delectable delight.

Red Neck Mom Letter

Dear Son,

I'm writing this slow 'cause I know you can't read fast. We don't live where we did when you left. Your dad read in the paper that most accidents happen within twenty miles of home, so we moved.

Writing Home to Mom
Won't be able to send you the address as the last Arkansas family that lived here took the numbers with 'em for their house, so they wouldn't have to change their address.

This place has a washing machine. The first day I put four shirts in it, pulled the chain and haven't seen 'em since.

Writing Home to Mom
It only rained twice this week, three days the first time and four days the second time.

The coat you wanted me to send to you, Aunt Sue said it would be a little too heavy to send in the mail with them heavy buttons, so we cut them off and put them in the pockets.

Writing Home to Mom
We got a bill from the funeral home, and it said if we didn't make the final payment on Grandma's funeral bill, up she comes.

About your sister, she had a baby this morning. I haven't found out whether if it is a boy or a girl so don't know if you are an Aunt or Uncle.

Writing Home to Mom
Your Uncle John fell in the whiskey vat. Some men tried to get him out, but he fought them off playfully, so he drowned. We cremated him, and he burned for three days.

Three of your friends went off the bridge in a pickup. One was driving and the other two were in the back. The driver got out. He rolled down the window and swam to safety. The other 2 drowned. They couldn't get the tail gate down.

Writing Home to Mom
Not much more news this time. Nothing much happened. If you don't get this letter, please let me know and I will send another one.


P.S. I was going to send you some money, but the envelope was already sealed.

It looks as if you had a wonderful Mother's Day. I like your collage as well as your Red Neck Mom Letter, but quite honestly Arkansas is too close to Tennessee for me to feel entirely comfortable.

Vicky said...

Wow, I see I am not the only one with a handsome son or two :) I guess since The Wild are out of it, Vancouver can have a go at it! I love the feast on the table- sure looks like a good mother's day to me!! Blessings to you Vic!
