Prince had already told me Goodbye and gotten in the truck, when he pops back in with this cute St. Paddy day card. He is forever doing little things that are precious to me.

I hope your weekend was as nice as ours. The weather was warm enough for a light jacket and it rained Saturday but that only means more water for our pond.

Prince and Gill headed for Dickson to see our friend, Tommy, who had the stroke a year ago from last October. It is so sad that I usually just stay away. Apparently, the stroke and meds have made him rather intolerable so his family has been requested to move him. So again I will say, no matter what your problems at least you are not as bad as Tommy.

Later that evening Prince and I headed to Springfield and The Catfish Kitchen to meet Carol, David, Rick and Pammie Pooh. Carol is one of those people that you just truly enjoy being around. She never sees a stranger and will ask anything of anyone. But the cutest thing is that she can get away with this.

She had gotten a digital camera for her birthday and she was so proud that she had brought it and I did not have mine. First, David had to get it out of the case for her as she has RA, and then she held it up to take a picture and could not find the button to push. I punched Pammie and told her that Carol had it upside down, so Pammie reached over and turned it right side up. Of course we including Carol fell into hysterical laughter.

Our dinner was catfish fillet, cole slaw, hush puppies, white beans and baked or french fried potatoes and before the meal starts they put a bowl at each end of the table of fried okra. YUMMY. I must admit I was not a kitty but a piglet.

Yesterday, Prince and I went to the new World Market at the Nashville West shopping center. We found some cool things to give his little brother for his fifty second burpday. They were seasoned nuts, island coffee, sample case of beers of the world and some stemless wine glasses. We also stopped at Publix and picked up a Cafe Latte cake. I wrapped the presents and used UT orange ribbon on his package. His home is a Vandy and Bama den, so UT orange is not welcomed but it is my school. Couldn't help myself.

Prince's little brother is a fantastic cook. He and pal, Andy had smoked ribs and brisket most of the day. Mimi and Prince's older sister had made a yellow rice and corn casserole. Little brother's wife or daughter had made this huge bowl of green salad. Needless to say no one left hungry.

Bep, Prince's sister, is on spring break from teaching Spanish in Jackson, Mississippi and Puppy is home on his spring break.

The kitty justice is that it is lots of fun to hang out with friends and family.

There is really nothing better than fried okra. It was a fun and relaxing time. Peace

Lady Di,

Awesome photo of the sunrise and the card that Prince gave you is adorable. I'm glad he thinks of doing those little things for you.

Sounds like you had a wonderful time with family and friends. This coming weekend we will enjoy Easter dinner at Mom's. It will be a smaller gathering this year as my brother and his family won't be there. Usually everyone gathers at Mom's. I must remember to take my camera along with freshly charged batteries.

Happy St. Patrick's Day.

PS. Forgot to ask you to drop over to my Writing Nook. I have a little something for you.

take lots of photos at your Mom's because I sure wish I had more photos of Mother. She has been gone now soon to be ten years and I miss her more each year. She had a way of making all holidays and everyday moments special.
I will drop over later as another real busy day ahead. Thanks in advance. Peace
