Hoe Down

This is the low dow on the hoe down. This ho is down.. I am worn out. You guys know (if you have been keeping up with me) That when the folks go out of town. I get my dig on in the yard. I don't have eyes watching me all the time. Worried I am going to pull up or destroy something. They still don' t get me by now! Duh I am a nature re-creator. I practice that First do NO harm! This is the mule my working machine..Ya'll also ought to know by now ...I forget to take pictures till it's almost too late. Anyway I filled this mule up 3 times and hauled it to the back forty! This is my hoe for the day...Never seen one of these before...but I must say WOW it really works after dealing with the hoe...hoe wore my ass ...out hoe! I came to realize I could never make a real living as a ho-er. I would strave to death! I would need too many breaks ;-) I have gone and pulled all the weeds out It is a long L shape bed I had an old pool cover that I cut up to use for the landscaping cloth
(cuz I was too cheap to go buy some when I can make some)
The parents came home in mid weeding and laying of the cloth.
So my cheap ass sent Pop, to the store to go get my mulch for me...
LOL to my surprise mom went to...
(probably to make sure he got what I ordered right...after all it was her bed I was doing)
I personally think it looks fabulous..
Look you can see the mole hole from here...LOLAs I was finishing moms, bed...Pop, hollar at me and said...hey this one is looking pretty bad you think you could do something for it. It being his lil bed,how could I refuse after all he got the mulch. But, not enough mulch, so they went back to lowes and got some more. Low and behold.
Yes, forgot the camera...sorry already weeding a haul out. See the blue landscape cloth-LOL
Look how good his lil bed looks :-) So I am worn out, I'm not as good as I once was..what happened? I use to be able to stay out in the sun and heat and work all day...But after 10 minutes it's break time and my two day project turn into 5 WTF!!

Nature n Reverse

First part of April actually it was April 1st, Pop came and got me to come have a look at this beauty. She was hanging out on the side of his shed. So, of course the nature lover I am I had to start taking pictures. So, I did I took a lot of them of her. I would come out and check on her she hung out over night. The next morning I checked her first thing and she was gone from the wall. (Don't forget any of the pictures you can click on and blow them up) Pose for your close up
I have never seen one of these before...anybody know what they are it's big appx 5"
But, I found her on the ground...not doing well...and several birds after her...then I noticed
all of these where she had been on the, I wouldn't have bother her..she was in labor for crying out loud and I had a camera up her butt...dammit how rude. She had her eggs then laid down to sad...I tried to keep her safe..but she disappeared!
but it didn't stop me from taking pictures every day...and I did...
as you can see they change..but I won't make you suffer with all 200 pictures ;-)
I can tell it's getting close...although this is my first moth labor witnessing!
They were born today 4-27 ...what ever they are
they are crawling up the wall..some are already at the top...
you got to blow this up and see how weird looking it is this dude tripled his size when he fell off the wall...don't worry I put him back on the wall.They reacted to me ... investigating them...they weren't happy...

I didn't touch them they might sting me

I am guessing they all grow up to be like mom...or the dad...

I enjoyed watching the nature process...was worried a bird would eat the I am worried something is going to eat these little babies...but it's out of my control, but I did enjoy it :-)
Tuesday update they are still going up the wall. If they change their appearance on the wall, fear not I will make ya'll suffer some more with the updated pictures :-)

Missing Babies Part II

Here is Emoree, (3) you remember her more recent because of the wedding pictures. Right before the wedding few people new that both Brook and Frank had become casualties of the economy crashing too. (damn casino got 3 of my family members) Just like my nephew Richard was and is now in Virginia, Re: yesterdays whinny post. Well, after the wedding, Brooke, Frank and Emoree, moved away to Alabama. Not real far but still 3 hours away again, from yet another baby of mine! dammit! But, the good news is they have employment and a new baby on the way..yay...happy happy joy joy and the other great is that Miss Emoree is coming to town for the weekend. Yay, so at least one baby coming my way. So, if I go missing ...ya know why :-)
Hopefully won't be too much longer before I see the other kids! Emoree spent the last night with me...this is me taking her back to Grammie's to leave for Al. We had just finished rocking out to beyonce'...then she got really quiet... :-(
Future Saints Fan...LOL
work it girl-strike a pose
No, they didn't have to ride bikes to Alabama...LOL not that bad!! Playing at the farewell party.
beautiful day
playing with dardar, hot & cold trying to find her too cute

Missing My Babies

Well today I am going to introduce my babies I refer to all the time. A few of you have inquired about them and were wondering when I would be writing about them. TODAY is that day Yay! But it will have to be broken down per family "babies" I have already done several post about one baby family re: my sister's daughter brooke x4 the wedding! It has been hard on me with my babies moving away. They were a major part of my existence...we were always together. Jennifer would call and we would plan our week out. Where we were going to take the kids. Where we were going shopping....So I needed a lot of time before I could sit down and share without falling to pieces..(it hasn't helped)! Think I am almost ready.

So, here is the next group "The bourland zoo"

My sister's son Richard,( aka my first born-ssssh)

his lovely wife Jennifer, his babee' momma, (aka my babe' mama too-ssssh)

I now refer to them as the ones that stole my babies from me >;-(

(if you see this couple call 1-800 - call- dar) OMG RicHaRD! did she just call me her babee mama...Oh, yes, I did my biotch (heartU)

richard-yes honey she did (that's my sweet boy..I mean my sister did a great job)

(you two turds took my babies from me--did I say that out loud) Ella - realizing she doesn't get to go to dardar camp....(ella (not 1 yet) being my 3rd lil one)

It will all make more sense later...not quite in order...

Last summer I was blessed to have worked in 3 dardar camps with my boys. First time for a week, second time for 1.2 weeks and third time almost 2 weeks...spoiled and Real Mama was getting a lil worried if I would bring them back at all...(seriously I wasn't changing banks really)

Ella being to young and still literally attached to "real" mama... didn't get to come.Me arriving in Destin, Fl to pick up my boys (ssssh) they had just heard me walk in and they were down for their nap...they all couldn't scramble fast enough to their dardar..look you can see Travis rooting his way under my arm...rotflmao...pordon the skivvies..they just woke up. (but I must say...most of the time that how you find most kids esp in the south...outside. It is just really hard to keep clothes on...anybody in our family...we all hate clothes!)

happy happy joy joy
riding back to Mississippi with dardar and the grandparents in the motor home-Priceless

Travis (not yet 3) & Rudey dog deep in discussion about all the fun that is ahead.

West (4)

going to their first movie with me and my buddy derfina going to Wally E

Coming to dardar camp...I have their parents (the real ones) sign waivers for medical attention if needed...Ya never know...esp with me. (fyi nurse & doctor in the family in ms)

I taught them a new way to go on a water slide - mama actually called me when she saw this one get posted on my space...LOL They had so much fun. NO FEAR DUDE!!!

The boys didn't care for the ants in the yard...they are more adapted to concrete and preferred I re-make the tent I had just built in the yard...under where the "fan" was and where there were No bugs..LOL they don't do bugs! (yep boys)

Playing continues the entire time at camp dardar's

I emptied the pool so they could enjoy it and have a blast while if filled back up... they were really able to body surf...jump off the ladder body surf...I mean safety first..waving waiver!
See, just sweet calm lil boys...LOL

the more dangerous..oh I mean having more brotherly fun

dardar,dardar,dardar...ummmm lil travis (t-bone) Back When they Live in Ms about 12 miles from me. They started pre-pre-school...West guiding his lil brother Travis to his first day....Man this will make me start crying in a heartbeat...12 miles away..then 3 hours away to Destin, Florida...Now they are in West Virginia 17 hours away! WTF!!!!!!!!!!

Ella Bella Halloween in Destin

dardar & Travis at the Gulfarium in Panama City

West when he was 3 with his circle hair as he called it.. my lil pumpkin' as I called him. His hair was like this from the time it came in. Till he started getting it cut, he loves it short...but always refers to remember when I had circle hair :-) Priceless!!
Me and my circle hair lil boy at 2
(I think this was the last time I could get down that low...LOL)

My most favorite picture, This is January after hurricane Katrina, we all went Bourlandzoo and dardar..(yes I was an immediately family member back then!) went to Destin for vacation...

to defunk our brains about the devastation at home! (we took a lot of family pictures)

West and I were in deep conversation I didn't even know they took this picture :-) Way too many of my favorites to post in one posting so, I will do it in sections. There will be more of the other lil ones...but for right now...these are the moments I am missing bad and will really be missing this summer. Being so far away there won't be anymore dardar camps. I knew then just how bless I was to have been able to do all we could do...all together, while we could and boy we all really did take advantage of the time... Priceless

A lot can happen fast people...this all transpired in less than a year...the co-lapse of what lil was left from were lost, families displaced...From long beach, ms (12 miles away) to in May of 2008 going to Destin, Fl, 3 hours away and still knowing I was blessed could still have the camps ...but then economy again...lost jobs,

My babies are Now - in New Kent, Virgina (as of Feb. 2009,) 17 hours away...

but so very, very blessed they have a job :-)
Took a while to mention this...because I am so very very Very Sad...but so blessed!

my lil family intro
