a tribute to Joe


a tribute to Joe.....

I'm not sure when I met Joe and his wife Kathleen but it has most certainly been a while ago probably to the tune of about more than 15 years ago. Joe is my sister-in-law (Janet's) father, she is married to Clipie's oldest brother Rick. I don't remember the first time I met them but I do remember the last time I spent time with them. In July we went to Atlanta to their grandson's wedding and we shared a dinner table as well as one of the last dances of the night. Clipie and I and he and Katleen were the only couples dancing to the tune of Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville.

Joe was always quick to remember me by name and greet me with a hug and kiss, even though we are not that related, I was always treated with lots of love and as a member of the family. He was always smiling and ready to tell a joke. He was the A typical "Dad like" figure. My memory is so odd sometimes, I can remember giving him our typical hug and kiss when they left the reception that night, but yet I don't remember telling other family members (who were at the wedding) good night. So here's to Joe, to his memory, to his great outgoing personality, he will be missed.

Remembering moments like these is why I scrapbook.

Yes, it is a wonderful tribute. You could just copy/ paste what you wrote and use it for journaling on a page dedicated to him, that would be very nice.

Feeling fine as frog hair! Now to get Miss Pumpkin on the mend, who has been hair ball hacking for five days. My poor girl! We'll I'm off to photograph some cards. I hope you all are well!

so much

Where Do I begin again? I. Have. No. Ideal. I'm going to hit the ground running here and just say the past few years has held a great amount of change for my husband and I. We have lived new places made new friends and started over again. We are movers and shakers I guess. Not really just doing what we can to make life feel comfortable as possible. so lets get off and running, I haven't had a scrap space for almost a year, its been well over a year since I've used a cricut but not the gypsy. The cards most fast and quick and not picture worthy. As some things stay the same I'm still into clean lines its still a timeless favorite. So much of what you will see is rockin it old school or cute and quick and a few Pintrest inspirations. I'm a girl on the run so more quick than anything. For the first time in three years I plan not to travel for a few months and that makes crafting, blogging, and everything else less complicated and room for relaxation and fun. Enjoy the…

Life

Ahh so I know no updates of late. A most lazy poster am I. I ve been not liking the current upload system for my pictures so that why I don't post often. Life is ok. We are still in Fort Worth. Traffic boggles my imagination daily I spend about an hour on the road everyday and its only 6 miles to hubby's work and back. Bright lights, big city, crappy traffic.

Do we like it? It's not the worst place we have lived. You'll find original Texans are friendly, problem is not many are around. Of course the possibility could be maybe I'm not that likable. I doubt I'll ever be able to answer that.

We have never bought a house for many reasons the main being ours in B.G. never sold. It sits after price reductions and after every real estate analysis you could think of. 30k plus under market value and yes I've had a recent estimate. The other is taxes. Taxes are about 6000 on a .25 acre lot here . so even if you buy a little house you have a horrid bill. In Arlington …
