Farewell Barbecue...Day 4 of my 16 day vacation.

Mike, Linda, Merrily, Carol and Sherry.

We had a great time today grilling alot of meat and eating salads and fruit!
Merrily is a dear friend of all of us and their family is moving to Roswell Georgia next week!! Of all places, GEORGIA!! Merrily is a guardian angel for my family. She is a dear friend of mine and was my sister's nurse when she was in the hospital, then was my brother's nurse when he was in the hospital twice!! She prayed every time she came in Mikes room and made his stay much easier and took the fear from him. They will be missed.
Dang I hate saying goodbyes to friends.

Elliott chases cats away

This is a horrible picture, but it shows a few of my bird houses on my fence, and Elliott in the corner chasing away a stray cat. He doesn't want to share the houses with anyone!!

Elliott guarding the new Bird condo

I have a new hobby. I love colorful birdhouses. I have 9 in the back yard and two in the front. I paid my neighbor to plant my whiskey barrel to make it look pretty, and he put trailing lavender colored geraniums in it along with other things that will bush and trail. I painted a two story birdhouse to match the plants. I looked out today and there was Elliott, guarding the birdhouse making sure no bird will go near it! I'm surprised he isn't sitting there really still with his mouth wide open!

As you've noticed, I have been lazy in posting. I have lost my enthusiasm. I want to write about my day, but I cannot write about work, and the rest of my energy is put on my brother. I have two weeks off coming up next week so I will catch you up then.

Meanwhile, I hope everyone has a great Memorial day weekend!! We had warm weather a few days back! It is back to being cool and rainy here.
