Father's Day Fiasco

 
 
 
Hello!
 
I hope everyone enjoyed the Father's Day weekend!
 
My dad's church hosted a father/daughter banquet Saturday and my mom
 
told my sister and I that dad wanted us to go with him....
 
what can you say?
 
So I texted my sister (who lives a state away) and broke the news
 
to her.
 
We laughed about us probably being the oldest daughters there (and we were).
 
We get to the small church and they had decorated it so cute.
 
 
We have arrived!
 
Yes my sister and I are complete opposites...she looks like mom and I look like dad.
 
And you will soon hear that I act like him also.
 
It was a small group of about 20 people and we had a wonderful speaker that also
 
sang a few songs.
 
We were in a small room so the speaker was about 10 feet away from us.
 
I take my phone in to take photos and I put it on mute (I'm not rude ya know).
 
My dad was sitting across the table from my sister and I.
 
He picked up my phone from the table and I'm in a panic because dad and cell phones
 
are a disaster waiting to happen.
 
He looks at the time and whispers/not whispers ( I don't know where he learned to whisper)
 
"is today Friday?"
 
I'm mortified and I'm shaking my head and barely whisper back "no...it's Saturday."
 
Dad whispers/notwhispers.... "I think the car race is on!"
 
I thought we were about to have to get up and take him home but we stayed.
 
As he put my phone back on the table (in this very quiet room),
 
my phone says "I'm sorry, I could not understand what you were asking?"
 
EEEKKK!!!  SIRI!!!!
 
My sister's eyes are screaming at me "DO SOMETHING!!!!"
 
What could I do.....it was done.
 
So we just tried to shrink down and not move for the rest of the night....but no.
 
This little girl was sitting next to us..........adorable!
 
 
And she was perfectly good and quiet until my dad started playing with her,
 
throwing napkins at her until she erupted in giggles and talking to him.
 
Her mom got on to her and I got on to dad.
 
Finally the speaker asked if he could pray before we ate and he asked if fathers and daughters could
 
hold hands.
 
Well my family loves each other dearly but we have never done much holding hands etc
 
so I though it would be nice to capture this rare photo.
 
While my head was bowed I did lift up my camera and tried to guess what angle
 
to hold it and I quickly held the volume button on the side ( I just learned that this will snap
 
a photo on the IPhone) because I didn't want to be rude during the prayer.
 
(barely got my hands in dad's)
 
 
 
But of course something had to go wrong..........
 
my camera went noisily .....clickclickclickclickclickclickclickclick
 
clickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclickclick
 
640 pictures!!!!!!!!!!
 
WHYYYYYY???????
 
Again.....my poor sister is kicking me under the table!
 
I promise y'all I do not intentionally do these things.
 
We eat and win some door prizes....my dad won the visor that is in every photo...
 
my mom is going to kill him....lol. If you look at my first photo dad is also
 
suppose to be wearing a tie...lol.
 
 
It was a great banquet and I apologized to the host and speaker for our noise.
 
Everyone left and of course this Walker crew couldn't do that normally!
 
Somebody locked the keys in the truck!!!!
 
 
 
Don't y'all want us to come to all of your functions?
 
shaking my head..........typical.
 
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
 
Or better
 
 
 
And that concludes our Father's Day fiasco.

The Yin/Yang of a Perfect Life

 
 
Ahhhhhhh
 
 
Beautiful Spring is here!!
 
You know I am loving my beautiful cherry tree!
 
And all of the blooming flowers!
 
But I decided this time to interject what's not perfect here also
 
in case you thought things were not "Lisa"fied....lol.
 
 
 
and then my dog Breesy comes up.....
 
 
What in the world!!!!
 
Has she been cleaning chimneys????  Working in a coal mine?????
 
Who knows!!!!!
 
 
What a glorious morning!!
 
But instead of enjoying this glorious morning I am on a turkey hunt.
 
Lol.....oh you don't hunt this way????
 
When you hunt you have to have the 3 B's
 
No.......not bullets, boots and box call.......silly
 
Biscuits, books and blanket....:)
 
 
 
Home sweet home....
 
 
And home sweet home is where I should stay because........
 
 
I decide to take my very overweight out of shape body to the gym.
 
First time in years and years!!
 
I'm walking at a pretty good pace (for me) and I could tell it was
 
all kind of wobbly.
 
My back and hip fat was out of sync with my walking pace and
 
right in the middle of my brisk walk the treadmill just shuts down!
 
And starts blinking in big bright letters
 
SAFETY.................SAFETY!!
 
Well I didn't know if it was concerned about my safety or its safety but
 
nevertheless I just picked my dignity off the floor
 
and got out of there as fast as my hips would wobble.
 
So there it is folks......
 
a perfect/not perfect life.......
 
and I'm grateful for all of it!!
 
So smile........:)
 
and look at this beautiful treeeeeeeee!!
(with a powerline)
 
Such is life.....embrace it all!

Puppies go to Redneck Island

 
 
Hubby and I decided to go to Redneck Island and take the new puppies.
 
Breesy was really excited!
 
I overheard her saying
 
 "it's about time someone took me out!  I had 14 puppies
 
and I deserve a break! Where's the daddy?  Who knows!!  Don't have any help...
 
I do all the cleaning AND the disciplining. I was told he stays out all night howling
 
at the moon. 
 
 Let's go Leo....no you can't take Lisa's shoe with you.
 
Big Brown!  Leave the cat alone!  I said come here.......right.......now!
 
Little Buck....tsk tsk.....bless your heart.....mama needs to feed you more.  Don't fret
 
baby....you won't always be the runt.
 
We are going on a trip to the most fun place.....we can run and play to our hearts content.
 
Now load up like big boys and be on your best behavior."

 
 Now follow meeeeeeeee!!!!


Run babies run!!!
(and hopefully y'all will sleep all night)



 
What a great day it was!

The Good Wife

 
 
So you know you're from the South when:

I'm lying in bed last night and I feel something on the back of my arm.
 
  I'm thinking "uggg....is that a tick?"
 
 So I grab it and pull and "pop" it comes off. I turn on my bedside lamp and it is not a tick......
 
it is something worse...........a skin tag.
 
  I feel the back of my arm and I'm bleeding like a stuck pig...frown emoticon
 
  Then I hear Shannon say....what's wrong....why is your arm bleeding?
 
  Panic mode sets in. Should I say a tick????
 
 No...that's nasty......a skin tag....no that means his wife is old....think.........think.... umm......
 
YOU scratched it!!
 
  He says...oh...I'm so sorry.
 
 Whew.......problem solved.....just make the hubby feel guilty........don't judge...
 
I did this FOR him.
 
I'm a good wife like that...:)

What's New in 2016

 
 
 
First up hello!!!
 
I have missed y'all!
 
Did I tell you my sweet husband got me some more chickens for Christmas?
 
This camouflaged beauty came to me named Rosie but I may have to rename her.
 
 
 
This beauty I have named Adele.
 
I think it suits her....:)
 
 
And then some friends surprised me with this guy!!!
 
 
A frizzle!!!
 
I did not need another rooster but who could turn him away?!
 
Russell Crow is not happy about it!
 
 
I thought and thought about a name for the new rooster.
 
I knew he reminded me of someone...............................................Marty Stuart!!!
 
 
 
And the best part of new hens..........
 
 
beautiful eggs!!! And some of them blue!
 
 
And of course the puppies, the puppies, the puppies!!
 
 
14 puppies will keep you very busy!!
 
I received a phone call from a photographer who wanted to take photos of
 
my sweet little bunch.
 
Our first road trip.....
 
 
Even though they peed all over her studio and tore down all of her backdrops
 
and tried to wrestle the camera strap out of her hands she took some incredible photos.
 
 
 
 
 
My heart is breaking a little today because 6 of my babies went to their forever home this weekend.
 
But I'll always have these photos and I'm so grateful.
 
But all in all life is as usual for "Lisa"...:)
 
My sons are good, work is busy, hubby is still putting up with me
 
and God is in control.
 
I hope each of you have a wonderful week!

YES MY FRIENDS.....MY SWEET DOG HAD 14 PUPPIES!!!!!!!
 
That's not really going to be their names...lol....but 14!!!!!!
 
Can you believe it?!
 
She's such a good mommy!
 
 
The puppies are adorable and all seem healthy and so is mommy.
 

 
I was a little down this Christmas and God always knows just what to do.
 
You can't be down and out with this many little blessings.
 


I am trying to help her feed them though.......they are growing so fast and stay hungry!!

 
I love to see them sleeping so peacefully, with their tongues hanging out and full little bellies.
 
They are one week old today.
 
They were born on December 14.....hmmmm.. 14..coincidence?
 
 
Breesy is the best little mommy....she has been precious with them.
 

 
Believe it or not we have so many people that want them we had to make
a backup list....in case someone doesn't want theirs,  there is someone to take their place.
 

 
The problem is...........I'm already attached......too attached.
 
And I have decided..............................
 
 
I want to keep them ALL!!!!!
 
OH SHANNON!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
 
PRETTY PLEASE????!!!!
