A Special Day What We Would Do If . . .

 . . . If I was back home a bunch of celebrating would be going on . . . 

Just about now I would be getting dressed.  Already sent the fb and text with photo.  

I added the text.  This photo hung in her childhood bedroom.  It was such a pretty room painted Pink of course .  An old four poster bed.  The room was filled with ๐Ÿ˜ 's.  

She would arrive as I kiss the dogs goodbye and give the Cowboy a wave.  LOL.  

I am a Dog parent

We'd either be talking about lunch plans or she would have already decided to drive to downtown  F.W.  depending on how much time we had. 

And then we would shop . . . .

We would gasp when we see this piece made by Thompson Furniture  Co.  The maker of her kitchen table which she inherited from me much too soon.  I couldn't  bring it to the island

And then we would wander . . .

And enjoy the displays.  I would end up back . . . 
And wish I could buy that table!

Pieces to look at . .   
Pieces to admire that aren't  really our style . . . 
These days I might rest in the rocker a bit.  I would pretend  I was considering buying it.  Just in case the clerks give me a frown. 
Ohh so many pretties . . . 
We laugh at the old phone.  She had never really used one like this.  She is only 40 today. 

We always love the furniture  painted white and Ohh & Ahh.

She begins to think about lunch and then something  catches our eye . . . 

Mom do you see it?

 I roll my eyes her . . . DUH!  It's  a Big 'ole Rabbit!

 Of course I see it! 

Dawng I wish I was back in town!  

I miss our shops. 

I miss the Mexican  food! 

And I miss our girl the most!

Happy Birthday

Domino's 'Gotcha' Day

The first toy she took outside! 
She didn't ask!

Eventually all the toys made it outside!

Her adopted sister Lola.  Domino is such a good dog we thought we could handle another dog.  So we got her a sister.  

Back in the day when I actually got to sit down and read.  
Miss those Keller days!
