Twirling Tissy Tuesday :D

Twirling Tissy Tuesday... I am trying out
new names for days of the week.. not sure I like this one...
But I think it describes my day!!

To start off with, I would like to Thank everyone
for their comments. You have no idea how much it
means to me to realize that someone is reading all of this.
And actually gets me, from time to time!! And by the way,
all, I checked out the number of visitors to this blog, I can't
even begin to believe the number!! 3256 as of the time I am
posting now!! (I know several of these are me checking
comments, and getting ready to post, and checking after I
post, but WOW!!!!) Thank you all for stopping by for
all of these great visits. And for those that stop by
on the QT, without you all, I would just be talking
to myself. (Kinda weird when I think of it that way)
;-) xxxx. Debi

Now for why I am in a tissy, Hubby and I drove to
K.C. on Sunday, to find that a place we have passed
many times in our lives, both young and now, is being
torn down to make room for progress. In the form of
more highway!! They tore down the old drive in theater
several years ago, to make room for the race track,
but now an old farm with a dairy is being torn down
to make room for the new highway!! It is right beside
I-35 highway.... and now all there is left is this
The old barn!!! The house has been torn down,
they have all the fencing down, (no more dairy cows)
the silo are still standing for now... but it
really breaks my heart to see progress
taking it's toll on another farm!!! This one
has been by the highway since I can remember,
and remember I am OVER 40!! (Yikes!!)
You can see the side of the highway in the fore
ground of the pic... and all around the barn is
new dirt roads where the construction
crew drive, park. I am afraid the next time
we go by, there will be no more barn either!
Makes me wish I had taken a picture years ago!!
Instead of now!! Sorry for the ranting! But it
makes me very sad!!! :(
Thank you for listening to me.

I will now go
onto something good! I have a new sign for
my one and only bathroom... "the powder room"
One of my new favs! But then I think I say that
about each new sign!! :D

Hope you enjoy it too :D

At our Christmas get together for Hubby's side,
Robbie, of the family, we finally got our pictures
taken as a family!! The last one was taken when
Samantha was just 4, and she had cut her hair,
the day before we had the pics taken!!
Well, I go the pic today!! HERE IT IS!!



Back row, Jesse, Dick, Hubby Robbie,
Leon, Bob, Brian, Bill (peeking), Nikki,
Third Row, Janet, Judy, ME, Ann, Mary,
Andy, Second row Samantha, Nicole, Brock,
Helen (the mom of all of them), Christi,
Front Row (Sitting) Scoti, Taryn,
Emily, with Cale on her lap, and Haley.
And believe it or not that isn't all of them
either!!! Those missing are in number of one
daughter and her husband, Janet's son,
Leon's wife and another son, Ann's daughter
and her family of four sons, (daughter is Emily)
Brian's son, and one daughter-in-law, I personally
think that the number pictured is really good one,
considering no one knew we were taking a family
photo (professional one anyway!) I am so happy
to have this one!! Robbie's mom will celebrate
her 88th birthday on January 29th!! (Kansas'
birthday too!!) So to all of us this picture is worth
a million bucks!!

Well all I have bored you long enough for this post,
(hopefully not... but I do have a big tendency to ramble)
I will close for now!
Here's to hoping you all have the most blessed day!!
:D

Live
Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take,
but by the moments that take your breath away.
Laugh
A sense of humor can help you tolerate the unpleasant,
cope with the unexpected & smile through the day.
Love
There is one happiness in life to love & be loved!!!


Also don't forget to SMILE...
You will get on in return!!!

Debi,
What a wonderful family picture! I know you all had a great time together and to think that this wasn't even every one! I love it when all the family can be together. It only happens at Thanksgiving with my husband's family. Every one stays at their own home for Christmas (and many live out of state). But we have a great time Thanksgiving!

WOW what a great bunch! :-) Loved that photo.. and wonderful to actually see you too! :-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog... Isn't it nice to know you are part indian?? I would have liked that (if it was me) and I probably would have dreamcatchers and alot of other stuff around my house JUST to remind myself of my own past.. hehe
I love the story of the indians, and I am so sorry that they are almost gone now.. that IS sad.
I have been to South Dakota and the Crazy Horse farm... beautiful!

Twirling Tissy! Too funny!

Debi, I know exactly how you feel about old landmarks being torn down in the name of progress. When I drive through the area that I grew up in, it breaks my heart to see how much has been lost...

My favorite day is the one right in front of me.
Great family pic and thanks for sharing.
We need to have one of those taken for at least the locals. We have 2 grand-children and their parents in Ottawa and consider ourselves luckly to get individual pictures or that crew, usually once a year.
