This Here Is What You Call A Random Post

First of all, Thank You to all those who have left me birthday and anniversary wishes in my comments. Also, a BIG Thank You and Hugs to Pea, Sue, Tammy, Barb and Mountain Mama for mentioning my birthday and anniversary on their blogs and sending their readers here to leave me birthday and anniversary greetings. I hope I didn't miss anyone, and if I did it was an honest mistake, so please forgive me. I am humbled by your kindness and blessed with your love and friendship, dear hearts. My thanks and HUGS to each of you.

On my Sunday Dinner post I mentioned that I was making homemade Chicken Pot Pie for my Sunday Dinner. Here's a picture of one of them. Well, after it's been slightly mauled. I made two 9x13 pans full, but the family fell on them like the proverbial plague of locusts and this was what was left of the second pan full. It was good, but I've had my fill of chicken pot pie for a while.Jessica and Lamar went to church with me on Sunday morning and I had my sister, Cecil take some pics for me. Some of them turned out pretty good, others not so good. I think it might have a lot to do with the subject matter. :-)
These next several are of me, Lamar and Jessica.
Just before these pics were snapped, Jessica
had to run to the restroom and hurl.
Nice recovery, huh?
The next three pictures I have to set up the story for you.
Last Friday night when Jessica, Jason, Lamar and I went riding around,
I took some pictures in the car. I tried to get some shots of me
and Lamar, but every time I took a picture, he'd anticipate
the flash and grimace, or blink or shut his eyes.
Every time I look at these pictures I howl, and so

did Jessica and Jason, Cecil and Sue, and even
Lamar thought they were hilarious. I have his

permission to post them for your amusement.
Enjoy, y'all.

I did say this was going to be a random post. :-)
I'll be gone part of the day today celebrating my birthday, so I'll try
to post tonight (Monday), but if not, I'll be back when I can.

Love to all,

What I love the most about you is that you are just you, nothing extra, you just put it out there. Fun, fun post. You do know ofcourse that Jessica looks EXACTLY like you, not a little bit, but EXACTLY. Lamar was part of this deal, right. I only see you in her face.

Happy Birthday, Diane!! Hope your day is blessed.

Also wishing you and Lamar a Happy Anniversary!

Big Mama said...

I agree with Bev, Jessica looks just like you. Those are great pictures!

I'm so glad you shared the ones of Lamar, they made me laugh this morning.

Love the pics! Jessica's got that beautiful glow thing going on, even after a sick spell. And the ones of you and the hubby are priceless!

Have a wonderful birthday!

Barb said...

Oh my goodness, what a good sport Lamar is, Diane. Those pictures of him look like I took them! :-)

And I agree with Bev, Jessica is the spitting image of you. I've always thought that.

I love the little blinky sunflower. I have no idea where everyone finds these adorable things.

I hope you have absolutely the very best birthday ever, Girl. You're just the best.

GREAT pictures.

Mountain Mama said...

I pray you have had a delightful day Diane.
The pictures of you, Lamar and Jessica are very special, but I must say the photos you took of you and Lamar nearly had me falling off my chair.
I know how hard it is to take a picture of ourself, but when you are trying to include someone else it can be hillarious!
