  1. So good to see these photos, Odie. That sun room looks lovely. How blessed must Aunt Frances have felt to have all her family around like that, and a great grandson too. Wonderful!
    Glad you enjoyed the Blue Grass music my friend.

  2. What a beautiful place your aunt lives in. It was so nice of them to have music and door prizes. What a happy Mother's Day for everyone.

  8. Hi Odie, looks like a great time was had by all. I posted this comment on your Sunday post (which I just now found) and realized you might not go back and see if others commented, so here it is, my friend.

    Wow, Odie, I just found this post, since I didn't blog over the weekend. Thank you so much for your kind words, both during the time you were reading and now after. You have no idea what it means to an author to get this kind of feedback. It is priceless. I hoped to turn the pain of my life into lessons others could learn from. Sending you virtual hugs and much gratitude.

  9. Looks like fun! I absolutely LOVE bluegrass. I would have liked to hear what they sound like. I'm sure they are very talented.

    My favorite door prize is the red flowers in a pot. So pretty.

  11. It looks like it was a fun day! I love listening to banjos - my grandpa plays and he gave me one of his old banjos so I can learn too!
