playing with children: here, there, everywhere

i love being online, i live half my life online, have for many years
i have children that live in missoui, 2 spots in florida and tennessee
today we were all gabbing online together…i love when we do that

i never call folks on the telephone, they get me in trouble…haha
i always come across as a smart ass, so i try to stay away from phones
but i do love to type and type away i do! i always look “good in print”

got packages wrestled with, boxed up and off in the USMAIL today
robin brought her stuff and squished and shoved and got them all packed
her and phoenix and quinn took them over to the jefferson city post office

leave it to that girl to find a bargain! yippee, yahoo crazy shipping costs
thank goodness i had saved a couple of amazon boxes, have many priority boxes
they will work great in the garden i guess, p o boxes sure did shrink in size

so all is well, all are fine and dandy, we’re all excited about Christmas!
if you see santa, i have been really really good since thanksgiving…
thank goodness only 1 more week to have to be good! hahaha HOHOHO…smile

one wonderful thing, i have met a 3rd cousin online in GA that keeps track of my family tree…how wonderful, he has a picture of my grandmother eula, my momma’s momma, i have never seen before…i love it! me and moemoe were two peas in a pod…she taught me flowers and saving seed and feeding the hungry, and the weeping willow switch when i was bad…oh sting! i tried to be good! haha her sense of humor was hilarious. the first time my husband joe met her, we pulled up at her apartment and you could hear rock and roll music…called her name and her screen happened to be unlocked…went into the kitchen and there she was up on her cabinet watering the flowers along the top of her ceiling windowsill…lordy, moemoe get down, let me water those for ya! she loved the beat of good music, many kinds of music…she’d always crush up peppermint sticks in a clean hanky and at church, oh cough cough, we’d sit and listen and sing and slowly eat peppermint…trying to remember if that was mountain creek or double springs church…i remember the paper fans in the summer time, you needed them as it was mighty hot inside! smile
