Happy Mother's Day to All

Mother's Day lunch--fresh barbecued goat. Yumm, yumm. Want some?

Ginger Lily, from my mother's garden.

Actually, we call this flower "Sharon" because that is my friend's name who shared the bulbs with my mother.

I got a new cell phone today with a camera on it. Things are about to get interesting around here! Now I will have a camera handy almost all the time. I've been playing with the phone all day, putting goofy photos of my loved ones on it that will pop up when they call. I also downloaded one ring tone. It plays "Crazy Little Thing Called Love." I am still trying to decide whether I should have gotten myself the unlimited text option. Before now, I have only had a very basic cell phone and it suited me just fine. In fact, just last night I was saying to my youngest daughter that I did not know if I was going to like this new phone or not. I think I'm gonna like it. It's pink! I don't know what has happened with me and the color pink. I used to shy away from pink. It was just too girly-girly for me. I've always been a bit of a tom-boy, but now that I am older, I seem to be embracing my pink side (but the tom-boy in me is still rolling her eyes about it)!

Now, do you want the truth about the goat? We did not barbecue the poor fellow. We were at Academy Sporting Goods and when we came out, this pickup truck was parked next to our car. About the time I saw the cage in the bed of the truck and was wondering "what the heck?", the goat moved his head. I would have been so mad at myself if I had forgotten I now had a camera just for moments like this so I grabbed my phone and snapped the photo.


  1. Love the goat - very handsome profile:-)

  2. Candis I would have gotten a better picture but I was afraid to get too close, did not want the goat to reach and take a bite out of my phone (or me)!

  3. That's a really clean goat. And some beautiful flowers. Flowers are the only kind of pink that dossn't give me hives! hee hee!

    Your cell phone takes some darn good pictures!

  4. I'm addicted to Joe's iphone. My camera broke, so I've been using Joe's phone. It's a better camera than my camera.

  5. Aww, Spooky BARBIE, you know deep down inside, you just love pink! I too was impressed with the quality of the cell phone photos.

    Patti, sometimes the phone camera is handier than a camera. All the better for getting those stealth butt shots!

  6. I love bbq goat!

    And I agree...I think Rach likes pink.

    LOVE the photos of the flowers.

  7. Princess Mindy Glad you liked the flower photos! Be careful about saying Rach likes pink--you have to work in the same office with her! I am miles away and safe!

  8. Oh, I'm glad you didn't eat the goat. My teenagers is on a "no meat" diet and it's wearing off on me and everything is wearing off on me!

  9. I need to upgrade to a better phone...think of all the butt shots you can now get with that thing.


Don't just sit there staring, say something!
