CAMPING

May 28, 2009

Finally a great weekend for camping! I had no idea how many people go to Tall Pines for the holiday weekends! The place was full! The site we were on was ideal for sitting back and people watching. It was just like sitting on the boardwalk in Ocean City! This was also the first time we took Jack camping. It was a barrel of fun, he had so much to look at and to go do, that he was exhausted at night! (we were too! LOL!) I introduced him to moving water; he didn’ t know what to do with that, so we went in-that was great until he came out and promptly rolled in the sand, UGH! Back in the water Jack!

The campground had a beach lulua with dancing one night, then karoke the next and something going on every day. I took a lot of bike rides around the grounds meeting friends and just chilling. Jack went with me————

CAMPING WOES

May 17, 2009

What a bummer of a weekend, well not all weekend, but enough! We left for Assateague Island Fri. just as soon as I could jump out of the car from work, and into the truck. Trailer was all packed and ready. Friday night was great, the ocean was low, the temp. was in the 70’s, just nice. Bike riding and walking was on the agenda. The park was pretty full too. The night was beautiful, the stars were out and the bonfire was warm. I love a bonfire, something about it makes me stay out late and just watch it.

The next day everything changed, the winds started blowing , it was still nice, so I was able to bike around some and walk to the ocean, burrr the water’s cold! Hubby and I decided to take a ride and see how many campers were in the state and federal part of the island. Boy were we surprised, both campgrounds were full. Mostly I saw a lot of tenters and young adults camping. We then rode to Ocean City and took the park and ride bus into the inlet for the car show. WOW, there were some people there!!! The inlet was full of classic and street rod cars, and the people ever where! It cost $10.00 a person to get inside of the parking lot to view the cars. Way tooo much money when you could walk the perimeter of the lot and see everything you wanted to see! LOL! Of course no trip to the boardwalk is complete unless you either get Trasher’s french fries or Fisher’s popcorn. Well the line for french fries was 2 miles long so I opted for popcorn. Good choice, it was just made and nice and hot. The sun was out and it was warm and pleasant, so we decided to go back to camp—wrong idea, you could see the cold haze just laying on the island. What a difference in temps!!  By Sunday it was gonna rain so we packed up early and came home, just great to be home for a while. Maybe next weekend we will hit the good weather. 🙂campfire

HAPPY BRITHDAY MOM

May 5, 2009

Today is my mother’s birthday, she is 80…something, LOL, she would not want her real age in computer land! HA! HA!

As I think about my childhood with her and dad, I can honestly say that I had great parents. I can’t remember doing without something, not having enough food on the table, nice clothes to wear, or hearing them fighting. That is something that you don’t see as much any more. See they believed in marriage ever after and you worked on your family, not give up on them. I don’t remember her being overly huggy, kissy, that is now that I am older. Sure there are things that I don’t agree with and I’m sure she feels the same way with me, nobody can be the same. But I learned how much she loves me when I went through a bad time years ago, she was there-not just sometimes-she was there whenever I needed her and even when I didn’t think she knew -she was there. I will never forget that!

Now that she is in the later years of her life, I want to make it as easy as I can on her, as much as I possibly can-for you see I love my mother unconditionally and forever, even when I could “ring her neck”- I will never not talk to her or turn my back on her, because I can’t picture my children doing that to me-a mother’s love is totally unconditionally period!!

So happy birthday mom I glad the Lord gave me another year with you 🙂

WHY WOMEN CRY

May 3, 2009

This was sent to me on my space page by a dear friend in Calif. It brought tears to my eye when I read it.  The real mother is in these lines.In between the lines are many diamonds of wisdom. Please read and think about your “mother, grandmother, etc. It applies to all of them. THE TITLE COULD ALSO BE CHANGED TO ” WHY MOTHER’S CRY” 😦

“Why Women Cry”

A little boy asked his mother,

‘Why are you crying?’

‘Because I’m a woman,’ she told him,

‘I don’t understand,’ he said,

His Mom just hugged him and said,

‘And you never will,’

Later the little boy asked his father,

‘Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?’

‘All women cry for no reason,’

was all his dad could say,

The little boy grew

up and became a man,

still wondering why women cry,

Finally he put in a call to God,

When God got on the phone, he asked,

‘God, why do women cry so easily?’

God said: ‘When I made the woman

she had to be special, I made her

shoulders strong enough to carry the

weight of the world, yet gentle

enough to give comfort,

I gave her an inner strength to endure

childbirth and the rejection that many

times comes from her children, I gave her

a hardness that allows her to keep going

when everyone else gives up, and take

care of her family through sickness and

fatigue without complaining, I gave her the

sensitivity to love her children under any

and all circumstances, even when her

child has hurt her very badly,

I gave her strength to carry her husband

through his faults and fashioned her

from his rib to protect his heart, I gave

her wisdom to know that a good husband

never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests

her strengths and her resolve to stand

beside him unfalteringly,

And finally, I gave her a tear to shed,

This is hers exclusively to use

whenever it is needed,’

‘You see my son,’ said God,

‘the beauty of a woman is not in the clothes

she wears, the figure that she carries,

or the way she combs her hair, The beauty

of a woman must be seen in her eyes,

because that is the doorway to her heart

– the place where love resides,’
