a good weekend

Well on Friday evening we found out that the Veterans Administration would like to cut Rusty's benefits yet again. Rusty has said that he is going to fight this. He is going to fight for what he has EARNED. I do not blame him.

However we did not let that get us down. Friday night we all went out fort dinner and karaoke. Someone at the bar kept the drinks coming for everyone all night long.

Easter was nice. I cooked a ham, sweet potatoes, scalloped potatoes, and mix vegi's. Then we top it all off with root beer floats and smores by the fire.

Sam's parents came over last night. It was nice to get to know his parents. I really like them and they did a great job of raising Sam. Amber is lucky to have him as a boyfriend.

Nikki got a lot of compliments on her dress. She was so proud of herself and she should be.

Well dinner is in the crock pot..... ham and beans..... and I have just been doing some cleaning today. I think tomorrow I am going to start on another quilt.

Oh check out this song. I so love it!

It is always something isn't it, re the benefits cut?  That young man, Kevin, that is HIS cane?  I just take for granted how much our freedom costs.  Tell him thank you from me!

Dang VA, seems as if I read more and more about shananigans like this. Our men and woman go into conflict and return to do battle with the very insititution thats meant to care for them. Somethings outa whack...

I appreciate your info in your sidebar about the overpopulation of cts and dogs. Way too many animals are "put down" because humans didn't realize the responsibility or the expense or are moving into a living environment not friendly to pets.

Great shot of you zonked on the couch with your pets blanketed over you. Looks like our bed at  night when our feline clan descends upon us.

Be well. Laugh often. Play hard.

Nice pictures looked like everyone had a good time. I liked the one of you sleeping I bet butter kept you warm:).
I hope you get things cleared up with the VA.
What kind of quilt are you making? Good luck with it.
