A visit to the Memphis Zoo means we have to go see Haley. She is in a playful mood and really put on a show. She got out of the water and backed up to take a running jump into the water. Talk about bubbles!! She has a powerful jump! She knew we loved watching her....I could just tell!!!

Tomorrow I go to the funeral of one of my former co-workers from the Newborn Intensive Care. We nurses are a tight knit group and this is the first death we have had among us. She had cancer and worked until this summer. She loved her family, friends, and all of the babies she cared for. I am very sad right now, but, I know her last days were hard and I am thankful she is no longer suffering.

Before the next grandchild birthday, I want to put a few pictures of Lily's tenth Birthday Food Fight. That was right, you read this correctly. She requested a food fight party. I have to admit it was fun! Tee shirts were made, nasty food concoctions were made, and the goopier the better. There was blueberries boiled to gunk, mashed beets, green mashed potatoes, tomato sauce, juice, chocolate, you name it! This was then either thrown, water(food) pistoled, or smeared into anyone outside the safe zone. Those girls did not care that I was an old grandmother, if I was outside the zone, I got hit!! Lily is so like me in many ways, except this silly side of her. She is teaching me to let go though!

I was looking at a box of photos that my mother hid in the attic. Who knows how long ago this was. After she died, I was not in the best of health, so my cousin cleaned out the attic. She sent one box to me that contained all my "stuff" I saved from high school. In the middle of this box was another box. It was an old, very old box of pictures. There was also food rations stamps from the war, an Easter card to my Mama Gooch from my uncle from Germany during WWII. I wish I could take a picture of it all to show you. This picture though is my Mama Hailey, Aunt Inez and my cousin Barbara Ann with her son. My father's family, my family. I am so happy to have this picture of them!
