My dad

(Fall 2011)
Monday night my dad went home to Heaven.
He was surrounded by his family.
We held his hands, stroked his face,
prayed for him, told him how much he was loved
and then watched him leave his earthly shell
and join our Heavenly Father.
We are joyful that his long ordeal with Alzheimer's has ended.
We are sad, but rejoice in the knowledge 
that he is healed and in the arms of Jesus.
Please keep our family
and especially our mom, Toots in your prayers.
With the holiday so close
and a cousin's wedding over the weekend
services are delayed until
Sunday and Monday.
Visitation is Sunday 4-7 p.m.
Funeral is Monday at 11:00 a.m.
at Howe and Yockey Funeral Home
in Shelbyville.

When things get hairy..

I love shopping networks.
I should never ever ever watch them.
 (shout out to Taylor Swift)
I watch and I buy.
I have just received my last purchase.
The no!no! hair removal tool.
Now, one would think the name would be off-putting,
but I was all yes!yes! and ordered it.
I let it fully charge and gave it a trial run.
The good news is...
I am now hair-free in all the appropriate places.
The bad news is...
I reek of burnt hair.
