FRACTURED FRYDAY HAIRY TAILS AND FLOWERS

  FFHT!!! FROM THIS DAY FORWARD
WE THANK OUR HOSTS AND CREATORS OF THE DAY 
MURPHY AND STANLEY
They give us a phrase to use for a hairy tail
The phrase has to be somewhere in our story.
Today's phrase is

"When I opened the box I was startled to find......."

The magic word in this phrase is box...I am a box-a-holic
I see a box and I must have it and I must inspect it.
So are you ready for my story, it will be 
a tad reversed...that is called creative license.

Once upon a time in the not too distant past...
I meandered into the family room to find a most wonderful box (no clue what came in it). It was a purrfect fit... I was having so much fun

Mom decided to put it up on the table for a photo shoot
Evidently it was all kinds of wonderful and a ton of fun to jump in and out of...Mom even managed some pretty darn good action shots
I wasn't even bother both the packing stuffs she left in it.


It was the best box...I just had to know where it came from,
who it was for and what was in it when mom opened it.


As you can see on my face, 
When I found out what was in the box I was 
STARTLED!!!

It was a high powered thingie that goes on the end of your garden hose to help reach high places that need to be clean on the house.


Today I'm joining my long time gal pal Dory from

Happy Friday one and all...

More flowers from the Louis Ginter Botanical Gardens in
Richmond, VA.  Louis Ginter (1824-1897) was a prominent businessman, Army officer and philanthropist.

Angels and Friends

 On July 3rd Mom went to visit her friend
Anita and to meet Anita's grandson
Graeme....I didn't go but I heard Graeme is
a most handsome 9 mo old and he smells good.
I wish I could have sniffed him.
Anyway Ms. Anita and mom worked together at NCSU and  have been friends over 25 years.


Anita gave mom a most cherished Willow Tree
angel figurine.  It is called Remembrance
It was given for many reasons.  Mom named her
Anita....because Anita is such a special friend.
I like this angel she smells so good.

She has a tiny gold heart on her chest too.
This is a picture of two angels on earth.
Angels Anita and Madi
Anita reads our blog every day so we just want to officially 
say THANK YOU again for this lovely Remembrance
Angel.
