Mike Mosaics

I did mention that I'm organizing photographs? Nothing fancy, but they are separated by years and I'm taking all kinds of trips down Memory Lane as I sort. I'm rather exhausted by the travels! I love seeing these photos of Mike as a boy before we met. I ask him if he thinks we would have been friends if we would have known each other as kids. He says, "Probably, if you could have stood my guts!" I think I could have.

Yes, he is a super hero in disguise.

Check out all that long auburn hair!
And there is a reason Mike is not a cowboy!

I love that long hair. There was a time in my youth when I would not date a fella unless he had long hair. How silly!!! I love what you are doing with these pictures!
My all time favorite is the baby pix with the tongue sticking out. "Ready, set, GO!"

Jill- Yes I am having fun!
Oh that Mike! He's just too cool!

Catherine- That's funny about the long hair date! When I asked Mike why he had long hair (because I do wonder why guys have long hair) he said, "Because the Beatles had long hair!"

Ruth- Isn't that a priceless pic? A great moment was captured!

Dad has the Palmquist mouth because Nancy and Angie and all Angie's girls have that same mouth. Not the same lips but the way they hold their mouths are the same.
I see a lot of Sean in those pics.

I agree Tab! Always have. What a cute kid he was and he has aged so gracefully!

Wanna Play “Stink Pink”?

Are you familiar with the game? I hadn’t heard of it until several years ago when we were building a house on Main Street. It was the house we were going to live in for the rest of our lives and the house my Dad helped in so many ways including laying 2,600 sq. ft. of slate tile, but that’s another story. I was speaking of “Stink Pink”. When we were building Main Street house, a man named Bob was working with Mike and taught us the game. We put in some long hours and this was one of the pastimes as we worked! The rule is to give a hint that describes two rhyming words. If the words have one syllable, you say “It’s a “Stink Pink“. Two syllables- “Stinky Pinky” Three syllables- Stinkity Pinkity” and so on! An example of a “Stink Pink” is: A Large Feline. (A. Fat Cat) An example of a “Stinky Pinky” is: A Comic Cottontail. (A. Funny Bunny) A “Stinkity Pinkity” hint is: Okay, I’ve drawn a blank! Could someone come up with a three syllable “Stinkity Pinkity”? So you get the idea. The words…

My little Mama

Johnny and "Bubbles"
My little Mama My birth-giving Mama You go before me Braver frailty leading on And I wonder at being knit together in your womb At loving hands attending my helplessness And you laboring at leaving Laboring at dying Not knowing how because you have always lived Full and free My lovely Mama  I love you always

My Mama went to be with the Lord on February 9, 2011 She was able to be at home when she died. I am blessed to have been beside her with Mike and Dad at her passing and to have seen her trust her soul to the Lord.
