If you go to the website to look at the other signs, be warned the language gets pretty graphic sometimes.

Have a nice weekend everyone, I'm wearin' my red shirt! Leaving to go work on "dad" stuff. He needs his attic insulated, we're supposed to get a heat wave here in for the next few days.

P.S. They sell red t-shirts with a picture of that sign on it.

I read through pretty quickly and didn’t see anything about “red friday’s”, so I thought I better put up a post.

I gotta go for now, nice to meet you. If I get enough work done, maybe I can FReep on Monday.

Sorry PAL.

Usually Luv or Conor come by with a Wear Red on Friday post.

I will work it into our Friday threads after I come back from vacation.

Gotta leave soon to go stand on the corner for our troops.

Hope things are working out with you Dad.

I had forgotten that name until I spent some time going through the Archives. LOL Better come home soon, Louie!

Who's St.Louie1? Do I know him? Seems like I have a faint - very faint - memory of someone like that who used to post here. :)

Hey.......you two have become one big crybaby. : (

Wolfie loves you both. Now, hush up! He'll return in the not too distant future. : )

AhhhhhhRoooooo!!

Some of us ought to post something patriotic every Friday and remind everyone to wear RED for our Military, just a small post or medium or whatever! I would like that! As follows:

~~Wear Red Today for our Military~~

She swims like a fish...she can’t stand to get out of the water. I love her little name...its Addyson!

When I’m up there she yells constantly over and over “Watch me, Nana, watch me.”

I remember my own kids yelling the same thing when they were little. They would want me to watch them out the kitchen window if they were sleigh riding or doing anything. Then when they came in they would say “Did you see me, Mama?” Kids seek approval from a very early age, don’t they?

Meg, I took this picture about 3 weeks ago. I have these lilies and yellow ones too on the bank at the pool. They do most of their blooming in June and just now and then thereafter. I didn't frame anything because I'm tired. Some of my impatience at the edge of patio and carport are at the bottom.and don't worry, I won't be posting like this all the time. Now I'm practicing and you are the flower girl.

Well, can always do a Amy’s Place Collage...this of course is from a few years ago & the Finest crew!

I would need to start soliciting pix (as you note, no one there is IDd). many of us know each other however ...

Many people are not happy even with anonymous pix..

Kids seek approval from a very early age, don’t they?

You are so right. Addyson is beautiful. You are blessed that she has come into your life, and she is blessed to have a "Nana". "Watch me!" is universal from small children. I had Miss Em today and she does the same thing. "Grammy, Grammy, watch me! I'm a big girl now."
