Saving Fall 2012 Part 1


Saving Fall 2011 Recap

Last year, my friend Andrew and I, we saved Fall. Yep. That was us. You are welcome.

Parents Say the Darndest Things….

Dad: For a small town there is not a lot of junk.

Mom: If you want a sandwich I have some black beans.

Dad: Do you want the last slice of Bologna?
Me: Do what?????

Me: Dad, I don’t think Bologna is healthy for you.
Mom: Why? It is 98% fat free.

Staring at the fork in the river.
Me: I think it was Pocahontas who asked, “Should I choose the smoothest course, steady as a beating drum?”
Mom: She didn’t really say that. It was only in the movie.

Referring to dad cracking jokes all night.
Mom: Can you imagine how terrible it would be if I thought the same stupid things you did?
Dad: I wouldn’t be the only dumb Dick.
Mom: There would be two dumb Dicks.

Mom: Babette likes the wacky weed.

Mom: You need to use a breakfast bowl. We have breakfast bowls and breakfast plates and bright colored place mats. It’s what we use for breakfast.

In Love

I need a man like this.

Jodi List

A while ago a made a post about bucket list. It was inspired by seeing Jodi on Ellen. Jodi passed away this past Saturday.

Dear Jodi, I never knew you. I watched you on the Ellen show. Thank you for your life. Thank you for sharing it with the world. I am grateful for your family and your fun list. You inspired me to make my own. I love you. My God bless your family. Love, Nicole

She Will Live in Your Bounty

Eva Marie

Yesterday is History. Tomorrow is a Mystery.  Today is a Gift that’s why it is called the Present.  THIS MOMENT IS MINE.

Dear Grandma, When I am very still and listen close with my heart I know just what you would say.  Thank you for being a guiding force in my life that keeps me moving forward.  When things are hard I think of you cheering me on. Thank you for believing in me and supporting me.  Thank you for always having a fresh view on things and helping me see things in a new light, a better light.  You are my hero.  Happy Valentine’s Day.  Love, Coley

Sunday Dinner Boy

Just about every Sunday for the past year and a half my son and I have prepared and enjoyed a fine meal together.  Recently I have moved out-of-state so this is no longer the case.  I am trying to convince him to come visit for a weekend so we can cook together again.  Now Brock and I loooove butter.  He takes after Paula Dean.  Everything he makes has at least a pound of butter in it.  Pretty sure I have gained 10 pounds from his cooking alone.  No regrets.
