Birthday song for Zach

video

I got this video last week at Zach's school. I went there and took treats to his class for his B-day party in class. Here's Mrs. Skidmore and her first grade class singing to Zach. He seemed to have a pretty good B-day. He's a good kid. Love you bub!

Video message to the girls from Taylor Swift!!!

video

It has been forever since I have put anything on the blog. I apologize, I have been so swamped. It's back with a bang today, though. I am at the CMA Awards again this year and the girls all love Taylor Swift. She was here today and left this video message for the girls. Enjoy.

Unexpected guest at the cabin

My dad e-mailed this picture to me. My cousin, Kevin took this picture at the family cabin on Lookout Mountain above Glenwood Springs, Colorado. It's a bear cub looking for some food. I am glad that momma bear wasn't around, too. That can tend to get nasty. I like the pictures, though. I remember that outhouse in the background all too well! LOL!

Happy B-Day Tiana

Tiana is in double digits! She turned 10 on Saturday. She had her B-Day party last weekend, since she is at her dad's this weekend. She got some cool gifts and likes the fact that she now has two digits with her age. That will change a few years down the road! LOL! Happy b-Day kiddo! We love ya!

Do you like Gladiator movies?

Italian archaeologists have discovered the tomb of the anchient Roman hero believed to have inspired Russell Crowe's character in the hit movie "Gladiator," Rome's officials announced on Thursday at a press conference.
Marble beams and columns, carvings and friezes first emerged from the Roman soil during construction work to build a residential complex in Saxa Rubra, not far from the headquarters of Rai, Italy's state-run television station.
According to Cristiano Ranieri, an archaeologist who led the excavation at the site, the huge fragments belonged to a monumental marble tomb built on the banks of the Tiber River at the end of the second century A.D.
"This is the most important ancient Roman monument to come to light for 20 or 30 years," Daniela Rossi, an archaeologist for the city of Rome, told reporters.

I miss you.

Ten years ago today I lost someone very important to me. My grandpa, Charles Gardner passed away on October 10, 1998. I was so fortunate to take a weeks vacation in September of that year. The last time I saw my grandpa was September 10, 1998. That was my 29th B-day. It was a very special day. I could tell that he wasn't going to be around much longer. He was skin and bones and was stuck in the bed at the care home he was in. I remember rubbing my whiskers on his face and telling him that paybacks are a booger. He laughed. You see, when I was a kid, he would throw me down and rub his whiskers on my face. It hurt, but he found it funny. He would also like to get me by "milking my mouse." That's when you squeeze the life out of a persons pinky.
He was a great man and was loved by all of his family and friends. I still think of him a lot. I still love to hear my grandma talk about how good looking she thought he was and how much she loved him. I wanted to take a minute and share with you how much Charles L. Gardner meant to me. I miss you, Grandpa. I love you.
