Friday Fragments

Half-Past Kissin' Time
It's Friday and a good day for some fragments of this past week.  Not anything to do a whole post about but several little tid-bits to share. Thanks to Mrs. 4444 for hosting us each Friday!
On Wednesday, one of our local schools had "Senior Prank Day."  When the Seniors arrived at school they were greeted by this abundance of balloons.  I thought it was about as cute of a prank as I have ever seen.  No damage done, no one hurt, no property destroyed, just a whole lotta fun!  That's also a whole lotta hot air represented in those balloons. 

The Princess' school had their annual Art Fest this past Sunday and they had a super creative face painter there.  Isn't that the cutest butterfly face you have ever seen? ~a real work of art~

 Clancy, along with all the rest of us, is enjoying the beautiful weather that we have been having the past few days.  It has given him a chance to get outside and do the things he so enjoys, such as shoot his bow and arrows.  I'm thinking he may need to get some sunglasses. ~love those squint eyes~
 This past Sunday afternoon Hubby and I went and cleaned up his parents and my Mom's grave and put new flowers on their graves.
They both looked so pretty when we finished and it made me very happy.  I do hope that my children live close enough to our grave that they can occasionally put new flowers on it and keep it clean.  Not that I will ever know, but still, it just makes me happy thinking that I will have a neat and clean grave site. ~I know, weird~
Hubby and I walked around after tidying up the graves and it was really surprising the number of gravestones already in place and the people have not even died yet.  While a bit strange, I sort of think that's a neat idea too.  You get to design or pick out your own and it saves your spouse or children from having to do it. Hubby and I have bought our grave plots and believe it or not, we will be able to look from our patio and see them in our new house.  Yep, should we still live in that house when we pass from this world, they won't have very far to carry us. ~chuckle~

Have a glorious weekend!!


  1. This made me chuckle... reminds me of when my parents bought their grave sites up on a hill in California. John Wayne was buried close by, and mother said "We have a wonderful view of the ocean". :)

  2. I told my children not to worry about visiting me after I am gone because I know they won't. We just want a simple creation.

  3. It is a bit strange but you are right, it does save your spouse and/or children from having to make another decision at such a difficult time.

  4. I'll be in heaven, they can visit me when they get there :-)
    Have a great weekend !


  5. That is totally the best senior prank! Love it!
    Have a fabulous weekend!

  6. Senior pranks of that magnitude can only be in done in a small town and school. And a lot of work went that one. So cute! And those Grandchildren faces - what a joy. D and I know a gravesite would never be visited so am selecting cremation. I have all the info already provided in a file for everything out-of-town kids will need when that time comes. Love them to much to make them have to guess about anything. See you next week.

  7. Those balloons -- what a great idea! And to be able to see your grave sites from your new house! Now that's something I've never heard of before!!

  8. Lea,
    Those balloons look like somebody had a LOT of fun. Nice Friday fragments. Have a good weekend.

  9. Oh the balloon idea is just wonderful. The pics of the grands are precious. As for the graves..each person is so different on those, it must be your upbringing, We never visited our relatives graves, but then again, my grandmothers just recently passed in their 90's.

  10. I am still smiling from this post, Lea, what a great idea with the balloons, I can imagine the noise when they started popping them!
    Your thoughts about gravestones I agree, we try and keep flowers on our loved ones graves, and I think it is so neat that you will be able to keep and eye on your stones!~wink~
    Enjoy your weekend,

  11. Beautiful. Did you hear about the couple who were recently tending a gravesite when a tombstone slid off its pedestal above and killed the man?! Crazy. I'm sure children are grateful when their parents take care of their burials before they pass. Scrolled down to appreciate your latest house update--You must be getting very excited!!!! Thanks for linking up :) Have a great week.


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
