Diddle diddle dumpling

My son, John. It's hard to believe that my little boy could have grown up. He's a good one. There was a time he would pose for pictures, but now it's very hard to get a photo. Kinda like pulling teeth.

Beauty Tips borrowed from

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people . For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others...

...Audrey Hepburn wrote the above when asked to share her "beauty tips." It was read at her funeral years later"...
A thought borrowed from, I hope she doesn't mind. I read this quote from Audrey Hepburn to my ladies in Sunday school class a few months ago. Audrey was inspirational and a beauty inside and out.

Daughters and giraffes

We visited the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs where my children (not so small anymore) got to feed the giraffes. Here are Becky and Melissa, up close and personal with the giraffe. Do you see any similarities? In the girls? Giraffes have very long tongues. They like to eat crackers too.

More squirrel and a chipmunk

Doesn't this squirrel look wild? Oh, I guess it is! Ha ha. Two little chipmunks lived at the cabin too. Of course, I named them Chip and Dale, but more likely Dell (as in female). We enjoyed watching them. It's not something I see every day being from Oklahoma. I love Oklahoma, but Colorado is a beautiful place on earth.

Ebert squirrel in Colorado

This black squirrel is supposedly called an Ebert squirrel, found in the mountains of Colorado. It visited our cabin every day of our vacation. Loved that birdseed! It was a beauty, and so was Colorado. Look at that view!!
