our town

So this is my home town in spring. All of the poppies are in bloom and the hills look like they are on fire.

I live in southern California but I live inland. The poppies only bloom one time a year and I just love walking through the fields.

I found out yesterday that the post got the demo permit, so now we are waiting on a demo date. I also found out yesterday that the marines that were suppose to come up and do demo can't.

So I call a friend who is a SgtMajor..... for my Navy friends CMC..... she said that she does not have any spare marines, but that she would put the word out to all of the other SgtMajors base wide. I just know that the marines will come through for us.

I had called our local trash company and asked if they would donate some dumpster's, and they said yes. So yesterday one of the other guys called me and he had followed up with the trash company. When he called me back to say that they were indeed going to donate the dumpsters I said "Well I told you so. They are called boobs and you can get a lot done with them". This guy just laughed nd said "yes but you have a nice ass". Guys are all perverts, but hey if I can get stuff done by having a nice ass then well ......o.k.

Today I do have several phone calls to make and then I am going to spend the day doing stuff around here. Nothing to exciting. I do have one more quilt to sew for a marine that is leaving in April and I have all the material so I just need to get busy and get it done.

I am not sure what this flower is but it is scattered in with the poppies.

Last night I watched this new show on WE call high school confidential. It was so good. I guess it really caught my attention because I do have two girls in high school.

One of my other favorite shows called the secret lives of women starts again in April. I can't wait to see that!

Amber just called me and asked me to call her out of school. I guess the under classmen have testing today so for her classes she is just going to be sitting around. I told Amber that I would do that if she agreed to help me out around here. So Amber is on her way home. I know I know. I am such a bad mom.

I loved these pictures!! who are these in the picture?? I don't want to guess in case I get them wrong

hey, I've called the kid out of school for "worse" things than this; sometimes they just need some "down time" and if she is willing to help around the house, so be it!!

enjoy the day

Oh, I love it when the poppies bloom.  I envy you in a field of poppies because I haven't been able to get out to see the wild poppies in the spring for some time and this year has been rainy.  Here we call them Mexican poppies but they look the same as yours.  I know a house owner who had them in his front yard and they would only bloom in rainy years.   I wish you would quit calling my favorite funny mom, 'bad' mom.  You are just speaking for the rest of us who aren't so used to such unsparing honesty.  (I want to kill that kid)  I had to laugh at my son Dan last night swearing and cursing over Dante going to a hacker's site on his big office computer, saying if he didn't mind him he would take his belt off and beat him until the police took him from his custody and put him in foster care or juvenile.  Dante was still in danger of being beat up today.  Instead he made him do exercises hard ones while he got over his rage.  I spent the day telling Dante his dad was in  the military and you can't disobey the orders of a dad who has spent 7 years in the military!  Gerry
