brings beautiful sunsets.
Okay I cannot tell a lie.... I did not take this picture tonight. How could I the sun didn't shine all day? I took it Wednesday night but we are watching a movie tonight and I cannot photoshop or take pictures right now. It's called NEXT, go rent it!

By tonight the flea market is all packed up, and the rock piles are huge. Our whole family loves rocks, we can go to a rock pile and take hours picking out just the right rocks and then take hours placing them in just the perfect spot in the garden. My brother Wally has the perfect job that we all want.... he is Fred Flintstone and works in the rock quarry, he has been known to scope out a rock with character and move it aside so it doesn't get hurt. Crazy Emmerichs we are!!

Yep that me tonight adding a few finishing touches in my winter coat.... :(
This little trick would have come in handy about 2 years ago when my niece and I drew a 10'x6' flag on the driveway, climbed a ladder and took pictures of the kids on top of it pretending they drew it. We used up a lot of red and white chalk with no WOW factor.
So "S" you ready to do it again??

Today is Mother's Day, I'm still not used to not having the kids here but I'm getting better. Lynn was on her way back to Oregon today, Shan was sick all weekend so El stayed with us Saturday night so she picked her up Sunday morning, and Adam is 17 and why would he want to be with his mother?? John and I filled the day up with un-decorating, lunch at Sport's Page, drinks at Deer Trail, and a visit with his mom and dad. It was a good day and someday I'll get used to my kids growing up : )

Elly is having a hard time adjusting to the remolding of the house. She doesn't like it when things change. The day she found all the trim tore off her windows in her bedroom she cried the entire time she was here and cried halfway home until she finally told Shan that she didn't want Grandpa to tear her room apart.
Today we drove in the yard and she gasps for air, covers her eyes and says "Grawma I'm not gonna look.... the skin is missing from your house." Later she sees these pictures and knows it was Adam and Uncle "E" who did it. She is so mad at them for tearing off the skin. We drive out to the shack and there is Uncle "E" and she yells "E your busted, I seen the pictures of you tearing the skin off Grandpa's house"

And those two older sisters whom I thought were being so good behind us.... pictures show us differently.
Sisters are so much fun!
Do we all look alike? DiAnn, Gayle and I all have our head tilted the same way, our mouths are the same, look at DiAnn and my hands... the same.

John - Wanna go for supper at Pot Belly
Connie - Sure lets call Ed and Jeannie
John - (calls) they can't go they are going somewhere with their friends
Connie - Okay then do you still wanna go?
John - Can't we just go the two of us?
Connie - Really?? Okay I guess
John, Adam and I go to Pot Belly to eat a variety basket. There is no one we know there so we eat, drink and talk just the three of us. We finish eating...
John - I'm gonna have another beer
Connie - Why? there is no one here we know, we are talking amongst ourselves and we can do that at home, don't you have beer at home?
John - Okay (disappointment)
We leave the Pot Belly and John drive so slow to town, takes the wrong lane at the stop light so we have to drive around the block. We drive through town and he asked if I want to go see Starla and Brad, he has to ask Brad something.... sure but I do have stuff to do at home so we can't be long. Okay he says.
We get to Brad and Starla's and Brad is the only one home. I asked where Starla is and Brad tells me this story of how things at her work are so bad that they are in a meeting. John has a couple beers there and asks again if he can have another one? Since Starla is not there it's like I could be at home getting stuff done so no can we please just go home? Okay he says.
We leave and drive every gall dang country road home driving 45 mph.... then we stop for gas. Then we finally are on A and we drive by my sister DiAnn's house and my brother Randy is there and it's his birthday.
Connie - Let's stop and wish Randy a Happy Birthday
John - says nothing and drives into the bar parking lot across the street
Connie - WHAT are you DOING?
John - Stopping for a beer
Connie - $^*(^#@%%#$@@ I can't believe we can F&(*(&^% drive 10 mph on every back road there is between here and Medford and we can't F&**^%$ stop and wish my brother a happy birthday
John - Gets out of the truck and says nothing
Connie - gets out of the truck slams the door and continues to yell the same things as above
John - walks to the door
Adam - walks to the door
Connie - walks to the door (as John opens it and stands back) and I say AIN'T YOU GOT ANY F&*%&*& BEER AT HOME? as the door opens up and everyone is holding my face on a stick in-front of theirs and yells SURPRISE!!
Connie - Turns around and walks back towards the truck
These faces were the highlight of the party and I was so surprised and embarrassed since everyone seen me yelling at John and knew I was not happy. It was a very fun party but there were about 75 faces there and I still need to get back about 50 of them.
Have a happy May Day....
