Things Are Ripening Around Here

It is Jason's birthday! My son-in-law, my grandsons' daddy. My daughter's husband.
He is so good in all of those roles. He is just a good, good man and I can't tell you how happy I am he's part of our family. He and Lily have the day off and they're on their way to go canoeing on the river with the boys. We're all going to meet up in town tonight to have supper and celebrate. I am looking forward to that! Hank is home and I think we'll all be there except for Mr. Moon who has to go to auction.
We have some mighty fine men in this family.

It is definitely getting to be summer. I walked this morning and it was not that much fun. Here's your annual picture of the Clitoria, also known as the Butterfly Pea but that's not nearly as cool.

Things are blooming and ripening. 

So are daughters. Here's one of them.

I got her permission to use this picture and she wants me to inform you that she has psoriasis which is why she is spotted. I told her that no, I was going to say she was a leopard. She said she told Owen that this weekend but he didn't believe her. Mr. Moon and I were just talking last night about how Owen used to say to me, "Mer. I no beleeb you."
Such a cynical child.
Isn't Jessie beautiful? Twenty six weeks. Fourteen to go. THAT'S MY GRAND CHILD IN THERE! Yes. I know you're aware of that. Still. Another grandson. He and Gibson and Owen shall be the Three Ninjas. And if Lily has another boy, it will be the Four Ninjas. And if she has a girl it will be...CRAZY!!!!

I hung out the sheets a half hour ago. They're probably dry. 

It's summertime, y'all. Enjoy the blooms and blossoms. 

Happy birthday, Jason! See you tonight!

Love...Ms. Moon/Mom/Mer Mer/Mary
