Friday Haiku - Grannie

Allow me, please, to again point out the new (actually, now aging .. well, just not new) applet, second from top left on this page. Angie, from A Whole Lot of Nothing, a truly awesome mother, wife, blogger and person, has a small business that, due to the economy, is struggling. She has asked for help. Not handouts. Just help. She needs to address a larger audience - so as to garner more business. So, I am trying to help. Look at her site. If there are things there you've been thinking about buying, or if you know of someone who may need things she has to offer, consider making those purchases through Angie's site. Help a woman owned, small business stay in business. And help a family through difficult times.


Haiku Friday





Grannie

Eighty Four years old,
But sharp as a wrinkled tack,
Happy Birthday, Mom



Yesterday was Grannie's 84th birthday. She's dealing with a spot of bother right now, she's in the hospital, and soon will decide whether to have surgery or go back to the Nursing Center for a short stay before coming home. We brought Red Lobster to her room last night - had a little party. She had a great time and was tired out by the time we left. She thanks all the FB friends who have said Happy Birthday and the bloggers who have sent their wishes for a return to health.

Sharp as a wrinkled tack, loved that line!

How did y'all sneak the contraband in the hospital? The nurses had to have looked the other way...

Happy birthday, Grannie. Reading Lou's words about you, I am inspired. And, oh, yeah, what Hockeymandad said.

To All: When I saw Grannie this evening she was very touched and grateful for all the love she's getting from all of you. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart.
