Rain, Love & Memories.....

I'm tired of the rain, but I hate to complain, since so many people are having problems with fires right now. I'll take the rain any day. It may as well be raining anyway ~ another whole weekend of painting, scrubbing, cleaning, wiping & throwing away. But, I can see my "ship" now and that makes it all worth it.

Broc came over do do laundry and type up his resume'. He is tired of waiting tables and thinks he wants a regular "9 to 5" with nights & weekends off. I'm sure he can find something. He's a pretty bright kid. I gave him my Daddy's pinkie ring. Actually, my Daddy had wanted him to have it when he passed away 7 years ago and Broc did not want to take it then. He wanted me to hold on to it until he thought he was responsible enough to have it and not lose it. I almost starting crying when he put it on. It fits him perfectly ~ almost like it was made for him. I realized then how much his hands were just like my Daddy's:
He swore never to take it off, just like my Daddy had worn it for 40 years. Yes, 40 years! My Mother gave it to him for their very first wedding anniversary. It's actually made of pewter and had a star sapphire in the center. Unfortunately, after constant wear and tear, Daddy somehow cracked the star sapphire and replaced it with a plain sapphire. He also had to have it welded together 4 times, since he always wore it thin. I decided that if Broc takes care of it {like I know he will} that I will take it and get a star sapphire put in it for his 30th birthday {which is only 3 year away ~ Gosh I feel old saying that}

Well my little peeps ~ I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday & looking forward to a great week ahead. I know I am. I did make a few new things for the shop, so please do check them out when you get a chance. I'll be posting pictures of my newly finished bathroom tomorrow, so let me know what you think about it.

And, if you haven't done it yet, Please make me "your friend" on MySpace. I'm off to fix dinner and get ready to watch that silly, silly show "John from Cincinnati" {it really is silly, but I like it}. I'll talk to you tomorrow. Have a wonderful evening ~ ♥ and peace ~ Kathy

Some more Seuss Wisdom:
On going places...
Think left and think right
and think low and think high.
Oh, the THINKS you can think up
if only you try!

  1. Oh, I'm sure he'll take care of it. He knows he'll get killed if he doesn't! I'm sure he'll love it and cherish it just as your father did. What a great story. And what a treasured ring with lots of memories hidden deep inside it.

  2. Thanks Ginger. I feel the same way :0)
