Summer, Grandkids, Life - June 2019 FOTW

Welcome to the June issue of Fly On The Wall. A group post where we each give you tid bits into our lives. At the end of the post you'll find links to the others. Be sure to stop by.
Now grab a drink, a snack, a pair of depends and enjoy a peek into our life, jobs, and such.
Jesse was outside smoking and came in the kitchen door. "Mom I just opened my Facebook and do you know the first thing that popped up on my page?"
Me, "no."
Jesse, "Easter eggs!"
Me laughing really hard. 
I had shared a photo of two men’s butts painted like Easter eggs. 
He walks out. "That’s distributing."
I yell "YOU'RE WELCOME" laughing so hard!

Seriously, do people REALLY respond to these things?? The above photo is a screenshot from my local yard sale/trade it FB page. Someone seriously posted this. SMH

Did you know that you can turn yourself into a Funko Pop doll????? OMG I was looking at them online because my oldest son's wife has a HUGE collection. So I was looking for one maybe that she does NOT have. Well...she doesn't have me! LOL

Jesse is a craft beer lover. He tries something new each payday. This particular day he has a chocolate peanut butter ale. So we start discussing different flavor combos that would be good. Maple bacon was the last suggestion. Jesse "uh no! It would end up tasting like grease. Then you’d really have the $h1t$. It would be like an oil slick." LOL this boy I tell you. He tells it like it is.
Come on over, you can't miss us. It's the green house about 1/4 mile from the light. LOL Every time we pass this house, this is our conversation.
"So where do you live?"
"Turn R off Chapel Hill and you can't miss it, it's on the right, the green house."

For my birthday my wonderful husband surprised me with a trip to Biloxi, Mississippi to see our youngest son and his family. I was thrilled. We last saw them for Thanksgiving. Once there they all surprised me with my birthday gifts. A camera (which I've wanted forever it seems), lens, tripod, flash, filters, bag, etc... so y'all look out. Because once I get it figured out, you'll be flooded with pictures!
While there we had some great laughs. If you are familiar with 3 year olds, you can imagine.
Hayley to me
Your phone has glitter. I like glitter. And it's blue. Pink is my favorite color. (wow the language ability has grown tremendously since November)

H:I had fun with you today grandma (this came with the good night hug, totally made my whole day!)

H:You got a big belly like mamas with babies. 
Me:Yes because I had babies. 

H to me:Take my picture. Again. Again. Again.

H to grandpa 
Are you a cowboy? You got a hat like a cowboy. (every time we'd leave the house, she'd say 'are you a cowboy' and giggle)

H to grandpa: You have a big nose. A cowboy hat and a big nose. (wow the honesty of little children. You need thick skin to stay around them)

  1. Ah, Dawn . . . kids and the elderly tell it like it is! No filters. My granddaughter was reading a book of bible stories and asked me if I "knew Adam". Augh.
    Enjoy that camera - what a thoughtful gift!

    1. LOL oh my! They can be such ego killers.

  2. It's sometimes really hard to tell what's spam and what's real, but that one? More funny than anything!
    LOVE your surprise birthday trip. I know you had a great time.

  3. I have been wondering how old you have to be before you can remove the filters. I think it will be fun.

    Sometimes SPAM catches you off guard and that is the scary part.
