Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful Father's out there!  My dad is in Heaven and he is so missed.   Today, I celebrate all of the wonderful memories I have of him.  I also celebrate my Husband (Sam) who is the BEST dad to our girls, our grandchildren, and our great grandchildren.  

I also celebrate my Father-in-law.  He is such a kind, gentle man!


Sam and I celebrated our 49th Anniversary this past week.  We had dinner at Kiepersol Winery, and the meal was absolutely wonderful.  I even tried Oysters for the very first time.  

I still can not taste or smell, so I honestly have no idea how they tasted.  

This Bread Pudding was "Over the Moon" good (I think)...  The only thing that I can halfway taste are sweets!!  Isn't that weird? This dessert had a rich caramel sauce with pecans.   Just doesn't get any better than this.  

Yesterday, Sam fried fish, hushpuppies, fries and we had all the works to make for a delicious meal.  The kids were in the pool most of the afternoon.  It is so neat watching them all play games and having a great time!  

This is what is happening in our yard...  The hibiscus are in full bloom and they are quite stunning....

This is my prayer for today.   Not only for myself, but for others as well.  




  1. Hi Shug!

    We certainly love our husbands and fathers! I hope Sam had a great day! '

    Bob and I celebrated our 47th anniversary in April...where does the time go?! two are such an adorable couple!

    I'm so sad that you still don't have your taste back. My grandson is just starting to get his back after almost a year...good luck.

    Have a very blessed day, Shug!!


  2. Your Hibiscus is hige and gorgeous!! I m not near as brave as you, and don't plan on tasting oysters any time soon. too bad you worked up all that nerve, than couldn't taste it! Happy anniversarry!! Seems like couples like us are a dying breed and a very small club now.

  3. That dessert looks amazing. The oysters, I will let you try. LOL

  4. Happy Anniversary!!!
    I love that hibiscus you shared.
    And I would not mind a jump in that pool. :-)

  5. Looks like fun times at your house.

    Happy Anniversary to you and Sam!!
