It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

W is for . . .


Whales and Water!




I forgot about our whale watching trip, which could have gone here, and took this picture at Disneyland so I'd have something for W. :-)









My hair was plastered to my head and my shirt was so wet, you couldn't tell it was wet until I took off my jacket and turned to the side. Jeanette was behind me, she still got splashed. Her jeans were one shade darker almost all over. My jeans were just as wet but were black and you couldn't tell.

Good thing it was the last ride we went on, it was close to 10 p.m.!

Here are a couple more Disney water pictures. . .
Mark Twain paddle wheel boat and the canoes in the water around Tom Sawyer's Island. And a fountain

This is a picture of Alcatraz Island and the water is the San Francisco Bay. (forgot this one when I did vacation - I have seal pictures)













Why yes, that is a child up on the patio roof. We use to have the slide up there. Yikes! Now we just use it to jump off.

We moved into our house during May and as I was overwhelmed at the amount of boxes to still unpack, I was staring outside. Outside at a sparkling pool. One I wanted to me in.

Hey M? Why don't we have a pool party for Memorial Day?

Mostly family but some friends too came over. Twenty-one years later, we still do it.





One of the nieces is married now and lives out of state. She and her husband were in town for some reason and staying at his parents. He made plans to go surfing with friends he hadn't seen in a while and mentioned it to her asking if she wanted to come along. "No, I'll be at Aunt Gina's for the Memorial Day party."

It was such an every year occurrence, she forgot to mention it to him! We teased him for a couple of years about not wanting to come. 


I have way more W titles than I can post here and spent way more time than I should have trying to decide which ones to tell you about. I give up. I've posted thoughts on some of them and just left links.

Oh my gosh. I'd be way too chicken to jump off the roof!
