Reunion Planning Meeting

Our high school class held another planning meeting Saturday night. There are lots of things to plan when you are having a fortieth year high school reunion. We held it at the home of Jackie and Lou and we all had a wonderful time.

Jackie and Lou have been so kind to welcome us into their home for our meetings and we all appreciate their hospitality so very much!!!

How to “Waste” An Hour of Your Life…

 

image

I just found this photo in my files….I worked on the “bokeh”…

image

…added “color pop” in Picasa…

image

…added “Gaussian Blur” to the “color pop”…

 

image

“emboss”…pretty sure I don’t like this one…although it would be a good pattern for painting…

image

“Sepia Tone”…not bad…

image

“black and white”…I like the top bokeh…

image

…back to the original….I think???

A Birthday

Today, February 7, would have been my Mom’s eighty-seventh birthday… I’ve written about her before. .. here is a little birthday walk down memory lane…

Madeline…

image

Here she is with me…

image

Some people, like my Mom, were just happy…

image

Madeline loved her family, nieces and nephews, her country and the color red…I never see anything red that I don’t remember her…she loved her God and His amazing graces…and prayed daily that He might envelope her loved ones in His arms…Is there anything more magnificent than a Mother’s love???

image

Red flowers were her favorites…

image

Madeline loved her country like no other person I have ever met…she sacrificed a lot for that country…she would have cried with the lady in the middle photo as she knew what that heartbreak was, she would often gasp with excitement when she saw our beloved flag on display…she would have loved the little girl on the right as she knew what her Mother was experiencing…she would have been in awe of the patriots in the upper left photo who portrayed what our founding fathers experienced …  I miss her so much …

 

Mary has lots of mosaics for you to visit today…

St. Louis Chaifetz Arena Packed

IMG_9164

Michelle Bachman introduced Glenn Beck last night. She is an extraordinary speaker and her enthusiasm brought the arena crowd to their feet. Her enthusiasm for America’s unalienable rights and our pursuit for happiness undeniably struck a common chord in the crowd. An arena full of people who braved snow, sleet, slick highways, and long waits was brought to their feet so many times last night.
The Saint Louis University Chaifetz Arena was full of individuals who were seeking information and support for their view of our current political situation.

IMG_9135

This man, dressed to resemble Abraham Lincoln, was a crowd favorite, especially when the cameras showed him on the gigantic live tv screens.

This lovely couple was in St. Louis for the Glenn Beck event and they live in Las Vegas!!!
