The tail is almost done ~ and the camera seems to have been left at the lake ~ this photo is taken with my phone!  All it really shows you is that the tail has a short way to go and then I can start on background!  I'm hoping that when 'his honor' gets home that he can tell me where the camera is ~ I think I know!

Until then ~ we'll forge ahead! Friday night, we went to the homebuilders' Reverse Raffle!  Lots of yummy food, card playing, watching a mouse run down a hole otherwise known as The Mouse Game, and a 50/50 drawing ~ which my step-son, Brian, won!  For those of you who know our family, you know that Brian is the luckiest guy when it comes to such things!!  The other thing you'll know about him is that he is very kind hearted!!  The 50/50 drawing was held by his wife  Cheryl, our daughter-in-law Miki and good family friend/my hairdresser Beth ~ they are all walking the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure in July and the drawing was a fundraiser for their walk ~ Brian donated back his winnings to the girls ~ that was very kind-hearted indeed!  For Brian, just to win yet another big drawing was reward enough ~ the whole room groaned when his name was called!!!!!!!  We're very proud of these girls for taking this on ~ Seattle daughter-in-law Coni, has done the 3-Day walk for several years ~ she wanted them to come to Seattle and walk with her!! 

We headed to the lake this weekend so Sonny could powerwash the decks ~ we had a little bit of dry weather for that to happen!  Saturday afternoon, we met  some Mansfield gals, who were up for the weekend and went out that evening with our lake friends ~ and hooked on Sunday!  Perfect weekend ~ filled with fun and laughter ~ and a couple of Peanut Butter Latte Martini's with the Mansfield group!  They were delish but they looked kind of spooky!!  The drinks ~ not the girls ~ they looked fine!!!

Ta ta for now ~ hope you had some fun this weekend!

Thank you for coming by today. I am Kim at My field of dreams. :) I like your roosters. I turned my calendars to May and both have great pictures of a hen and a rooster and I was thinking of doing those next. I am so glad I started hooking last year, it has been so much fun.
It has been nice meeting you.

I am not surprised at what a generous person Brian is. After all, he has had you as an example of generosity and kindness.

This weekend being Mother's day, I imagine you will be feted as the wonderous person you are. It is so nice to have you as a friend!

That crazy kid in Florida
