More Odds and Ends + On Good Authority

NEWS FLASH!! I just reached 100k hits! I can't tell who the person was, but I appreciate it!

I have it on good authority that politicians really can work together for the good of the country!! Scroll down to see......

Now wouldn't this be a HOOT??!! Maybe we should ask all candidates to appear on Dancing with the Stars for one season. What say you? It might be a better way to select the winner without all the mess of campaigning and it would probably be a lot cheaper! LOL

Another photo of my aunt and her boyfriend, circa 1925-30. I think this is a different guy than in the other photo.

This gray kitten was given to my daughter by a co-worker back in the 80's, who had so many cats she couldn't keep any more. We had him just long enough to find him a new home. He was wild! He climbed everything in sight - even me!

Easter 1967 in Norfolk (VA) Azalea Gardens: Mr. kenju, his brother and their aunt and uncle, with our baby boy. He was 14 months old, and I bet every time he sees this picture he cringes!

Moonflowers growing on our pump house a few years ago. I think I'll plant them there next year, too, instead of in front of our house. That way, the deer can't eat them like they have this summer.


My daughter-in-law told me yesterday that she had received an email touting

"McLame and Failin"

I love it!!

We just found out we will be having out-of-town company for the next two days, so reading and commenting may be difficult. I'll do what I can.

I know I have several photos of our son dressed in a similar style.
They can cringe all they want, I think they looked adorable.

Love these old photos, Judy. Enjoy your company.

Hale McKay said...

I love that Obama/Palin dancing pic.

LOL at "McLame and Failin"

I have some old pics of me sitting on a porch playing with a large bullfrog -

-- ...and the way our parents used to dress us!

I'll have to post it sometime, when I work up the nerve.

PI said...

I love the photo of you and the kitten.

I love the old pics, and like the one of Obama and Palin.

Check out this site. Click all over the place and click the door a few times.

Oh, you look so nice; I mean, like a nice person. Well, no, not like one, but one actually. First time I've seen what you look like. And I like.

You have no idea how distressed I was to hear about Bullwinkle. Yeesh- is nothing sacred. Moonflowers are the best- love them! Mine have been growing from the 3rd floor balcony this year, hanging down instead of climbing up. They've been nice.

I got all caught up, including the kitten with bird post. :-) Thanks for that. And those autumn wedding flowers- delicious!

Kay Dennison said...

Great post!!!!

Loved the photos!!!!

Granny Annie said...

Love the photos. I'm might have to draw the one with you and the kitten.

It was good for you to post the dance of the two most inexperienced together:-)

oklhdan said...

I'm with you....I think a dance off would be great!

tiff said...

I would like to go back to 1967 and take the shoes off Mr Kenju's aunt's feet. LOVE THEM!

Evil Twin's Wife said...

I think your son looks cute! Love all the pics.

Tabor said...

The dance photo was photo-shopped very nicely. Now we need to find one of Biden and McCain doing a tap dance...doncha think?

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

LOVE those pictures, Judy. That first one from 1925-1930...PERFECT!
And the one of Mr. Keju...(What a GORGEOUS Couple you are....) Is so sweet, with your little boy.....I think he looks adorable!
And that is a WONDERFUL Picture of you, my dear....You are a GREAT Beauty!

Enjoy your out of town visitors, my dear!

Beverly said...

I LOVE the photo of your aunt. Those old photos are just priceless.

I love the photo of you and the kitty too.

Ginnie said...

Wow, that's quite a varied bunch of photos, Judy. Did you hear Palin's talk to a bunch of second grader's today? She was explaining the duties of a Vice President......absolutely amazing how uninformed she is !!!

Carolyn said...

LOL at these! Love those photos in the post below too.

Farrago said...

Joy Des Jardins said...

That top picture is 'a hoot and a half' Judy. Love the picture of you and the kitten....very sweet. And also a hoot....McLame and Failin.

Peter said...

Congratulations on the 100,000 milestone Judy, and on this and all your other great posts, that's why we all keep comin' back.
