Mother’s Day 2015



Here is my Mother, taking a nap on bus (or maybe a train, I wasn’t there) speeding through her beloved Ireland way back when. She has been gone a long time and I never stop missing her.


Here she is with her grandson Logan. I think they liked each other.

And this is my mother way back in the 70’s on Galveston beach. The woman to the right taking the picture is my sister who has three daughters of her own now (and two grandkids)  including the little cutie holding our Mother’s hand. That little cutie has a brand new baby of her own this year and is celebrating her very first Mother’s Day.


And this is my Mother-in-Law Nana. She is quite a stylish Nana.


And among her many skills is that she is very competitive at board games.


And here is my wife, Heather, mother to our son Logan. Heather is very special to me. I love her very much. She is also full of surprises. For one thing she got certified as a Zumba instructor this year so now she is teaching classes. Once she decides she is going to do something, it gets done. If you want to help fine, if not, get out of the way!


Happy Mother’s Day Babe.

And Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mothers in the world. Where would be without them?

Happy Mother’s Day Heather


She was there at the beginning when he was protesting

He is still protesting and she is still with him. She is the SuperMom!


And a Scary Ride Buddy


Who else would he take to the big dance?


Or go find the Great Pumpkin with?


Or share his deepest thoughts?


She’s been the freezing soccer mom!


And wardrobe consultant


There’s nothing like Mom, Pooh, and a bottle of warm milk


There is nobody like her!


Happy Mother’s Day Heather! We love you very much!

Weekend Reflections – Bright Shiny Things


Last Sunday morning Sweetie and I left SuperPizzaBoy at home so he could read poetry, listen to music and ponder important thoughts play video games. (No we didn’t go to church, we were total sinners and didn’t feel bad about it either. I know that we are on your prayer list.) Oh, sorry, I got off track. We went to a local nursery to shop for plants.


At least Sweetie was shopping for plants. I brought my camera along and was taking pictures. Taking pictures (cuz I’m not a photographers, I don’t capture images, I take pictures) of the plants but also…


of the bright shiny stuff they have for sale there. I just can’t believe that let people like me take pictures for free.


I just love it. I also think its a case of bloggernomics. You don’t know what bloggernomics is? Here is a lesson. See all those bright shiny balls below. I don’t know how much each string of baubles is but if you are a blogger...


You get all of them for free!!!! That’s bloggernomics.


It applies to multiple flats of flowers or


a whole pile of reflective balls. And as a bonus you don’t have to haul them out to the car, or unload, and then haul to the back yard. Or water them, or replace them after hail storms or any of that other stuff that comes with the concept of “owning” things.


Is that a win/win or what?


And when we were all done I was happy, and so was Sweetie. Here she is watering the flowers we put in at her mother Nana’s house (World’s greatest MIL in case you are wondering who Nana is.) Look at Sweetie’s big smile.


Nana was happy also, and so was SuperPizzaBoy! No telling what he did at the house while we were gone. I don’t want to know. Trust me.


So, do have any good examples of bloggernomics?

A Day for Our Mothers

Mother’s Day is a big deal to me. I mean where we would be without Mothers?


SuperPizzaBoy has always been tickled by Sweetie. My beautiful wife and mother to my son.


Not much has changed. Sweetie is still the sun that SPB’s planet revolves around.


I’m just afraid that there are no girls out there that can compete with SPB’s Mom.

My mother-in-law Nana is the world’s greatest. I have to tell you that she puts up with a lot from me. But I’m worth it, right? Uh, say right! Well lets move on.


My Sister Ellen is also a great mother. She has three beautiful daughters and a wonderful grandson Mr. Beans. Check out Ellen’s blog if you get a chance.


Speaking of great mothers, this is Ellen’s daughter Mary and Mr. Beans.

This is my favorite photo of my mother who has been gone for some years. She always had that Irish twinkle in her eye. She loved her family very much. 


I don’t think that there was anybody that loved children more than my mother. Here she is getting acquainted with SuperPizzaBoy.

Be sure to appreciate the mothers in your life today.

Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mom’s in my life.


Especially Sweetie, my wife and best friend and mother to our child, even if he towers over her now. He couldn’t have a better Mother nor one that loves him as much as Sweetie does. The love of a mother is awesome to behold.


My Mother-in-Law Nana, best MIL in the world.


My Sister, Ellen, who brought three daughters up to be very capable women.

My favorite picture (stains and all) of my Mother. She has been gone some years now. I think about her every day and I miss her very much. So much of her personality comes out in this photo.

Who can find a virtuous woman? She is far more precious than jewels… 
Strength and honor are her clothing, and she can laugh at the time to come. 
She opens her mouth with wisdom, and loving instruction is on her tongue. 
She watches over the activities of her household and is never idle. 
Her sons rise up and call her blessed. 
He husband also praises her: 
Many women are capable, but you surpass them all! 
Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised. 
~Proverbs 31:10, 25-30
