Toilet Paper

I’m sure many of you have toilet paper in your bathroom. It has become a necessity in our world. – Thank heavens! Much better than those old Sears and Roebuck Catalogs!

Most of us, have functional or maybe even attractive ways to display this needed tissue.

Mine is a functional display. Very practical.

Isn’t this little just the CUTEST girl you have ever seen??? Don’t you just want to pinch those sweet cheeks?

(trust me this all works into the same story - 
hang in there with me)

The last time this cutie visited me, she decided to make things “easier” for everyone here.

Alyssa vs TP (2)

Well, maybe easier isn’t the correct description. But… Still, it’s pretty cute.

Why don’t Daddy’s and Mommy’s think actions are as funny as Mammy’s and Papa’s do???

- Cause I thought this was pretty darn funny!

Wildlife in Our Yard!

Geese (3)
Geese are common in our area

Rabbit (2)
So are rabbits!

Turtle (1)
But this old boy is not as common. He wouldn’t let me get close enough for you to see he has had a rough life. His shell has been chewed in the front. 
But he has persevered!

Do You Like Your Name?

Brenda Kay.

I’ve never really hated my name. I’ve never really loved my name.

One time as a pre teen, I asked my Mom “Why” she named me Brenda – I was going through a phase of really not liking my name. She told me that they had chosen Denise or Brenda and they finally decided on Brenda. Of course, at the time I thought Denise was a much better name for me! (the grass is always greener concept!)

Interestingly, I’m often called Barbara. Especially as an adult. I guess I look like a Barbara.

So my name has always been just that. My name. In my mind, nothing special – just my name.

Over the years I have become Mom, Grammy, Mammy and once in a while Grams.

The husband calls me Honey, Babe, – many terms of endearment but mostly these two.


When he says “Brenda.”


“I love you.”

At that moment, I have the most beautiful name in the world.

Randy and Brenda
