Good Friday

Good morning all - or good afternoon or maybe good evening - depending on where you are in the world

I have a funny story to tell you about yesterday - Mom and I went to the bank yesterday afternoon as she pulled into the parking lot she said out loud "why are there so many people here? we'll never get through the drive thru" She parked the car decding it might be quicker to go inside - people were actually lined up all the way to the door...Mom was turning around to go back to the car and just come back later but she stopped to ask one of the people in line what was going on and the man said - " people got to get their money out...the sign says Bank Closed for GOOD Friday" - Mom smiled and giggled then whispered to me "why would I even try to explain to them the meaning of that!"

It turns out that I have the same shirt as Bijou -

I'm really NOT in the mood for photos this morning besides, Bijou looks much better in HER shirt than I!

Mom is pretty p'oed because the former daughter-in-law has taken the little Livy to Misery [missouri] for Easter. Livy was supposed to be with us for Easter but the "witch" took her. We'll just have to do Easter next week - There is a "Chalk The Walk" in downtown Knoxville next week-end so I think by daddy and Livy will be doing a square - so that will be fun -

I might blog more later but for now we're going for a walk.

  3. Hi Checkers,

    That's a funny story about Good Friday. Some people are just clueless.

    You look terrific in your shirt. But I'm a little offended you referred to me as a male. I'm a girl silly.

    Pee ess, Mom LOL over the Misery comment.

    Wags & wiggles,

  4. Oh Bijou - 1000 and 1 apologies - I KNOW you're a girl - and a VERY pretty girl was mom's fingers going faster than her old brain - Please, please, please furgive me????
