My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

answers and such.

Pops, it's a Flute, a Lute looks like a guitar.

MammyT, dunno why you can comment sometimes and not others...but please keep trying as I love your comments!

Steph, we didn't try the fried ice cream as it was 10am and 60 degrees at the time...when we were ready to eat we were in another part of the park... but it's on my list for next time! (along with a funnel cake and turkey leg and gyro and......)

Diane, what cracked me up was the cannas that came up OUTSIDE the flower bed! Another rule breaker among us!

Steph, the Southland Life Building was bought and renamed. Here you go.

Jen, hubby drove :-) and I yakked all the way there and all the way home! I was soooooo excited!!

Cookie, Billy Bob's is fun I've been told, never been there... and thanks, :-)

MammyT, a Methodist choir director huh? I knew there was something about you.... ;-)

Pops, no, you're not the only guy round here....Cookie comments regularly...and Subvet well as Glenn and Infantry Dad occasionally....but feel free to "encourage" the guys to comment more! Castles and churches are my favs too! and Yes, Subvet does clean up well! ;-)

MammyT, at the bottom of the youtube video, after it's done there are several tiny pictures, if you click on them they pull up related videos, I haven't watched them, but they look like more from the same performance...I'd start there. Or go to and search Mrs. Hughes and see what all you get.

And folks, there's still quite the debate about making handbags out of an American Flag going on over at AfricanKelli's blog. Here's my take on it all:

Have you ever seen the movie "Thank you for smoking!"??? I highly recommend it! Here's the gist. You and I disagree on topic Y. (tired of using X all the time) You and I debate topic Y. I will never convince you that I'm right. You will never convince me that you're right. However, all the people surrounding us listening may or may not be decided yet. It's THEM that I want to convince. And when we discuss the American Flag there are many important reasons and deep feelings to teach those who don't know how to show respect to our flag. Overall, this debate has made me sad. Because there are Americans out there who truly feel that there's nothing more important in our flag than a piece of pretty cloth. That, my friends, breaks my heart. How can someone raised in this country NOT have been taught the special-ness of our flag? But the thing is, this isn't something you can reason into a person. It must be taught from childhood, shown by example. No wonder so many couldn't care less about a Presidential Candidate who doesn't salute the flag during the Star Spangled Banner!! I mean, why bother? It's just some cloth up on a pole......


It's just too sad, and unfortunately, it is a sign of our times.

And "barrack", thank you for your comment, I usually go to the blog of all new commentors and tell them thanks and please come again...but you left no url so I'll tell you here to come on back. Oh, and since you were concerned.....let me assure you that I do indeed have a life, a Wonderful Life as a matter of fact, for more information about My Wonderful Life see the blog header.

I'll get back to my regularly scheduled posts tomorrow. I'm trying to get Subvet to record another video for my sewing for beginners post on Wed and I forgot to weigh in for the brown plate today. As for Magic Moments Monday I'll be brief.

"I'm gonna pray when the Spirit says pray

I'm gonna sing when the Spirit says sing

I'm gonna shout when the Spirit says shout

And obey the Spirit of the Lord!"

hey mighty mom! i love that you answer any question that is put to you. but i and one other asked a question a while back that you haven't answered yet - and i'm still curious.

Hi Mighty Mom! Thanks for stopping by my blog. You have a beautiful family! To answer your question, my husband is a Foreign Service Officer with the U.S. Department of State (long way to say "diplomat"!). We meet lots of military folks when we're overseas and our esteem for military families grows with each meeting. (my husband and I both grew up in military families) Take care!

MammyT said...

I remember the one Diana is talking about.
Mom, this was a great post, altogether. And I only had a comment problem that one day?!

Friend, don't be too down about non-patriotic people. I feel a great surge of young folks returning to their heritage and taking pride in the sacrifices that our grandfathers and grat-grandfathers made. And, we will teach our children right. Patriotism will always survive, for it is what has seen us through every war and hardship in our country's history.

Wow, so the Southland Life building of my childhood is now the largest hotel in Dallas. Must be a tale in there somewhere, but I can't track it down just yet.

Oh, and for a while, Breyer's made a limited edition ice cream--Fried Ice Cream, and although it's not as good as the original, it was pretty darn close for a package! Put that flavor HIGH on your list!
