Thoroughly Poetic Thursday #130

      Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy 

Here is today's inspiration

My poem is a true story   

It was August 15,1998
Favorite Sis and BIL of Angel Madi
were married that day.

They did things their way which
was OKAY
They had a small private ceremony followed by a 
very nice dinner. 
The next day off to Jamaica for their honeymoon they flew.

The following Saturday we had a huge reception
catered by Red, White and Blue BBQ.
A wonderful time was had by all.
Then came time for their wedding cake.
M and G had their hands on the knife..
just as they raised it to make the first cut.

Becky, my cousin from HADES, said you are doing it wrong.
How many ways can you cut a cake?
In a nano second, she move M's hand away.
Before G could even blink, he was cutting his wedding cake
without his bride by his side.
All in the room were stunned...
Becky moved, the cake was served.
When I commended my daughter for  keeping her 
She said, Becky was lucky our cake cutting 
WAS NOT near the 
I'd like to wish favorite Sis and BIL of Angel Madi an early 25th wedding anniversary which they will celebrate on...

Happy Tuesday with friends

Thank you to our 

 Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus 

Friday, July 28th , our friends (the ones we visited in June), came to Raleigh to stay with their 11 year old granddaughter, Peyton. Her parents and brother were away.  Peyton  is the most delightful 11 year old I've met since my daughter was 11. We made brunch plans with our friends Sally, Gary and Peyton on Saturday July 29th.   We met at Brigs  ,which is about half way between our home and where Sally and Gary's daughter and her family live. We all ordered Belgian Waffles they were delicious.

I finally remembered to snap a photo of Chef Wolf, he was made especially for Brigs.

The emblem on his shirt: The incredible edible egg. I love eggs

I love the 'dot' over the 'i' in Brigs is a fried egg.

We haven't seen Peyton since she was an infant.  I remembered how much my daughter loved things for her room when she was 11.  I decided to make a pillow for Peyton.  OMCs I had no idea green was her favorite color.   



It was indeed a Happy day we thoroughly enjoyed every moment.

Dearest Auntie HiC

On Saturday July 29

Mom spent 3 hours on our John Deere cutting our grass in the very  HOT GEORGIA SUN!! She said I’m wiped out and I’m really feeling my age. 😹

We convinced her to stretch out on the bed and maybe read her book: American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer.

P.S. Mom and Dad went to see this movie last week.
They said it was very good but also very long 3 hours?!


We are all good company❣️🐈❤️🐈‍⬛

Dear sweet Rocky and Kat thank you so much for making this most impawtant suggestion to Mom. 

Lovingly Auntie HiC

A summer Sparks
