L is for LIFE
Here are some images from my life
My Godson, Christopher's wedding 7/8/05, I grabbed the wrong picture, sorry--they both have funny faces here. My wrist had just had it's first surgery about 6 days before, I am in a cast here. a week later I was in the hospital having I&D surgery and was DXed with MRSA. (we all know how that story ended)
Our daughter Amanda and my great niece, Jessica. They are the same age-Amanda is 4 months older
My nieces Dana(Jess's mom) and her younger sister Jennifer.
My nephew, George and his wife Holly. George is Christopher's older brother.
My oldest daughter April, she caught the bouguet.
My niece Jennifer, her mother-my sister Barbara, and Jenn's husband Charlie.
My Hand surgeon "Stash" (Dr. Stanley Maryczk) and his assistant Louise.
Ron (hubby) holding Jennifer's first born, Emma at her "welcome baby party."
The Late Princess "Boots(ie)" RIP(Dec. 09). Along with some of our geese with babies. (we are now down to only 2 geese) and the chickens have been gone a while. We were going to get a new flock, but we think our son's dog will chase, catch and kill them.
Amanda, Trisha(my niece-in-law...married to Christopher) and I at her baby shower, 3 summers ago.
Last winter, the first of 3 storms in a row. I had just started my blog. It is February, and after the 3rd storm we had approx. 30" of snow in the yard.
above 7am--below 1:15pm
The "king" with his wine and cheese doodles (after doing firewood)
End of Oct. early Nov.
The base of one of the HUGE Pine in the very front corner of our property, see our neighbor's house next door, He and his boys are living down town with his folks, we was a cop, a Lt. broke his neck in a car wreck, is now very depressed, his wife left him and the boys before the wreck, but that was quite an ordeal, anyway, his Dad is now dealing with cancer also, so we only see him once in a while) and our Bocci Ball court (needs some TLC)
Here is the bottom of that large canopy Maple, See here also how it towers over the house, and on one side is on quite a hill. This is the tree that worries me the most when we have a strong Nor-Easter!
Below is my "Pretty" who loves to follow me around when I go outside. Like our late Bootsie, she also LOVES "leaf" season!
I took this picture looking past the wishing well, swing set etc.
This is the same kind of pine that is down by the Bocci Ball court. and next to it are 2 Hemlocks. There are also 2 hemlocks across the driveway from this. you can maybe make out the old dog house and one of our old rabbit hutches here. This "Mess" of chairs etc, is left from Son's campfire. I am still waiting for him to clean it up.
The barn is about 20 feet past all of this.
This is only part of my "front" property. We have 4.77 acres. There is a larger piece beyond the barn, that is fully wooded.
Here is what keeps my son Tom busy on Sundays. AIR SOFT. (like paint ball but with pellets)
His team is called "The Knights of Jersey" they are part of "Ocean County Air Soft League" this picture was taken at a charity Tournament "Shots for Tots". They tied for first place. The Tournament raised over $4,000 which goes to "Toys for Tots".
3 people are not here today. Thomas is second from the left standing.
Thanks for taking a small peek into my life.
