OMG! Am I Going To Get Sappy Here?

First of all, I would like to say that my sister, Lacy, is AWESOME! 

Really, she didn't even bribe me with bacon to say that.  I came up with it all on my own!

Wanna know what she did?  Do ya?  Do ya?

Ok, keep your pants on (except for you there can take yours off).  I'm gonna tell you.

My sister made a beautiful pictorial tribute to our mom and put it on YouTube. 

My mom.  Isn't she lovely?  (Just say, "YES!")

Our mom died in 2000 before she could see either of her beautiful grandbabies, who I will describe for you now.  Briefly, so you don't get bored.

My daughter is Miss Smarty Pants (MSP), and she was born in 2001.  My sister's baby, who we will call Rocker Dude (RD) was born in 2009.  RD is so named because the child is not even 2 years old, and he already LOVES guitars.  He likes to hold them, play them, look at them, lick them, what-ever-the-hell, just give the boy a 'tar and he is dandy.

So, without further ado, here is the video.  I've narrated the pics below, just in case you give a shit who all these people are.  Also, there are very sexy pictures of my legs included, so try to control your libidos, folks!

Ok, I guess that was WITH further ado, but now there's no more ado, so here is the video:

If you're still here, thanks so much for sticking with me.  And please give my sister a standing ovation. 

Yes, right there at your computer.  Go ahead and do it now, and I'll make sure to pass it along.

Happy Mother's Day, everyone!!!

And Mom, I miss you dearly, every single day of the year. 


  1. Happy Mother's Day to you and Lacy. I love you both and loved your Susan too. She was a nut just like both of you. Does that run in the family?

  2. Still standing giving that ovation, which makes it really hard to type. just sayin.

    Happy mothers day to you

  3. That was beautiful and it made me all teary eyed and sappy. I sent you an email for mother's day. I hope you had a great mother's day.

  4. Lovely tribute! I gave her a mental standing ovation! That's far more involved and meaningful than just a regular standing one.

  5. Tammy - You know it runs in the family. Have you looked through a family photo album lately?

    Dazee - I would love to know what body part you're typing with. ;) Hugs to you!

    Oilfield - Thanks for the Mother's Day wishes. It was a super day.

    PorkStar - Sorry I made you teary with my sappy stuff. And thank you bunches for the e-mail. That was super thoughtful of you!

    Sandra - Thanks! You do get extra points for degree of difficulty.
