Piper gets a party

my sweetheart piper is never going to let me forget just that... that she is my sweetheart and no one else ever will be.  she apparently has learned to read traditional western languages, left-to-right, top-to-bottom, and now proudly parades her pillow around correctly to see if we can get it right, too.

old ladies reba and lilly came by for the weekend to play.  purposefully dodging my early morning photography session with quick steps and fancy spins to face the opposite direction of my tantalizing calls.

dad's ingenious method of letting the two old bitties out into the yard and not have to chase either one down.  sadly these canines don't have advanced thought-processing abilities like we like to think they do ... namely they are unable to coordinate an escape into the treasure-trove that is the neighbor's yard.  instead they end up all twisted around my sad little hydrangeas and eventually conned into the live-dog trap that is the back of the yukon.

until next visit!

Hiney Quarters hits Boligee by storm

so i guess i promised earlier that i'd have a followup post to illustrate our entertaining and crazy-ridiculous family weekends in boligee

i don't know if my parents were quite prepared for this when i sent it to them last week to make sure there was mainstream approval before i posted it here

premise - our cousins beetle, anna, and blanton from baltimore headed down for easter weekend and brought some of their east coast charm with them

i'm new to this whole youtube fad.  you might want to load it in youtube's window (bottom right option) because my version here appears quite tiny and you may miss out on very comic moments

Green Thumb FAIL

yes these are hydrangeas.  apparently you're not supposed to trim off the dead blooms late in the winter or the next year's blooms won't reemerge... so instead i devote as much love to my two blooms as others would to the whole bush
