Friday, So it is Friday!

Funny Friday? There was a time I looked forward to Friday. But since my week now has 6 Saturdays and one Sunday, it doesn’t make that much difference.
We have been blessed this trip to NC with several visits from our son#1 Jack. He brings along his son Steve who is waiting around to work and save enough money to go back to school for one more semester. Now I am not sure if it is quarters or semesters, I just call them semesters. Anyway he will be getting his degree once he saves up the money. He is brilliant, and is majoring in music.
What does a music major do? Got me, I assume, teach. Of course his number one goal is to be an educated rock star. I personally hope he makes it.

Steve’s twin brother works for a software company. He came by for a few minutes, and I was shocked, his hair was cut and he was clean shaven.

Before upper
The above is after, the beautiful lady with him is Brit, his bride to be.
Matt (Our graduating Grandson), missed his notice of school pictures so he did not get any, it is his senior year so we wanted him to have some. I took his school ID and blew it up. it was very grainy as anythng above a wallet size.

It was a good picture in his Tux. So then we shot a picture just after Reececup had cut his hair.
Then took a new picture of him, and slid the face onto the earlier one with the tux . Results. Sherry was not happy with the hair.

Our man Matt!

Mark is working at a lot of small jobs while he builds one beautiful garage apartment. There is not a lot on the horizon for builders. There is not unemployment pay for the self employed.

Oh, Rose (from Roses are Read) had her son down a week or so ago and said she was filling him with ‘Mama’s cooking.’ Sherry has a couple dishes the kids always loved. So she has done the same while we visit here. We have Sherry’s famous Chicken a la King, and once, her famous Lasagna. One of our staple meals consists of: Cornbread, pintos, cabbage and salmon patties.
Thanks for stopping by the log to waste your time on my rambling.

Nite Shipslog
Andy Rooney on women over 50:

A woman over 50 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think.
If a woman over 50 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting.

I appreciate you coming by the log.

You did a terrific job of switching those faces in the photo. Both are gandsons are handsome young men. Probably took their ways after their grandad. I think I could handle Sherry's staple meal. Sounds good. Helen

Nothing better than Mama's cooking for the family! It does a mother proud to cook for her children.

I understand that your week consists of 6 Saturdays and one Sunday! Quite similar to mine except my week is 7 Sundays! LOL

Jimmy Sullivan said it best "Isn't it great when life is a weekend".....
