Check this out. My grandson has got rhythm in his bones. He'll be 3-years-old in October. He was not taught this. His mom heard him from the other room and came in to record it. Ha, I'm not sure I could do that with 2 drumsticks! :P Our little music man.
And this is my petite, 10-year-old going on 15, grand daughter. She plays soft ball with the older girls, 'cause she's so good, of course. Hey, I told you this was brag-a-mania!!
She cheers on her teammates and plays second base. During her last game she made a double play! Whoo Hoo. (Oh, that means she got 2 people out during one play-for all ya'll non-sports readers...teehee.)
They both can sing great, too.
OKAY, OKAY, I promise, if you'll brag about your kids, grandkids dogs, whatever~I'll gladly rejoice with you.

I love celebrating with you and your life-loves. Tell me!
Yummo, summer tomatoes! Hunsader Farms opened their farms early to u-pick as many immigrant pickers did not return to pick this year. (Because of our crack down on illegals.) Anyway, hubby and I went and picked a bushel and 1/2 of tomatoes for $3.00, yes $3.00!!
That basket is a bushel. These are just a few all laid out on the patio table.
So here's my most favorite recipe for summer tomatoes. (I had posted this before, but I can't help it-it's just soooo good!)
Tomato Mozzarella Toast
2 pounds fresh tomatoes (about 5 cups)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup thinly sliced fresh basil or chopped parsley
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
8 thin slices of prosciutto or ham
1 cup (8 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat broiler. Core tomatoes and chop. In large bowl, combine tomatoes, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, basil, garlic, salt and pepper. Let stand at least 30 minutes. Slice rolls in half horizontally, then vertically. Brush cut side of bread with the remaining olive oil, place on a shallow pan and broil until golden. Reserve about 1/3 cup of tomato mixture; spoon remaining mixture on rolls. Top each with 2 slices of prosciutto, 1/4 cup of mozzarella. Add equal amounts of reserved tomato mixture on top. Broil until cheese melts, about 3 minutes. Serve immediately! Quick before the cook eats it all.
"Who gives food to all flesh, for His lovingkindness is everlasting." Psalm 136:25
While this big guy was cooling in a mud puddle, another was trying to chase, now I use that word loosely, a smaller tortoise. And because his legs were longer, he caught up, and bumped the smaller one's shell.
But this guy watched us people passing by, until an ant walked in front of his nose. Big guy "T" looked like he wanted that tasty snack. The large head followed it from right to left, opened his mouth and missed. The little ant was too quick for him and my camera.
He looked my way as if to say, "What, what are you starin' at?" Comfy in his spot, he waited for another unsuspecting snack to come along. Usually when there is one ant, there are plenty more. (No I didn't wait to see if he got one.)
"But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." 2 Peter 3:18
When I act like Big Guy "T," all comfy and resist growing and learning, I miss out on things around me, and don't even see the little things that pass me by. Lord, give me knowledge to know when to step out of my puddle and the desire to learn from You.
I was born in cajun country. I now live in Florida with my husband Mike. My daughter Shelly, and Dan her husband, live close. My son David and his wife, Melissa, along with my three grandchildren live in Virginia. I love them all and thank God I have been so blessed.
I wrote tips for Focus on the Family "Teen Phases" magazine and have a short story in the "God Encounters" anthology. I have a story in the book, "Fighting Fear; Winning the War at Home When Your Soldier Leaves for Battle".
I once kissed, danced and swam with dolphins, and falcons have landed on my arm. Love my English Golden Retriever. I'm a sucker for chocolate and salsa.
