The Muddy Bottom Boys

Hello from Wet Indy!
I wish I could send all this rain we have been having to Texas!  Lord knows y'all need it in the worst way right now!!!
So, that being said... As you can see the Boys are having a grand time playing in the rain and mud.

No white fur.  Crimped hair.  Don't be fooled by the sad look, he had a great time getting dirty!
This used to be a beautiful, lush garden area.
Now it's a pig sty.
They thought it needed to be excavated.
Bless their little muddy hearts.

Thanks for looking and your comments!!

Prom Season

As some of you may know, I work for a florist in town.  Spring means high school prom season.  So, we are busy gearing up for it.  It's a mixture of cute, comical and stressful.  This applies in this order:  cute girls, comical boys and stressful mothers.

At this time I am reminded of my first Prom.  It was in 1971.  Very different from the proms now days!  I was a sophomore and my boyfriend (and future ex-husband) was a senior.  The proms were held in the gym which was decorated by the juniors.  Girls carried nosegays instead of wearing corsages.  I came across this ad from Al's Formal Wear.  It's too funny (now)!
The Hot-Rodder
Classic.  Love the hair!  Is this what my date wore?  No.  This is the one he chose:
The Chopper
Yeah.  Because it matched my dress color.  And yes, he had the ruffled shirt.  Read the descriptions.  "The fastest chick in town"  Really!!!!  Actually, his hair looked quite like this model's hair (it's all gone now)

Fun times!!!!
