My Mothers Day

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Mothers Day as I did.
My Family Carol,Gary and Joanne rang to wish me A happy mothers day as they live a few hours away, Donna rang to wish me happy Mothers day and to invite me out to lunch at La Porchetta's picking me up about 11.30 . As you can see by the smiles we had a lovely lunch. After lunch I went back to Brett and Donna's for a couple of hrs before comming home.

Garlic prawns....that's really wetted my appetite...I love them! Glad you had a great day.....I had wondered why I kept getting email adverts about Mother's Day when it was weeks took me a while to realise that not all countries have Mother's Day on the same day.

Oh my, that meal looks so wonderful! It sure did look like an excellent time!

That Adi and Amber are something. Amber forgot all of the 'rules' my dad taught her. As for Adi, she loves our house because we let her sleep on the bed. Although, Adi isn't supposed to be on the furniture, we walked in the door tonight after golf to see her on the couch! Yikes!!! We know who runs this house, huh?

Have a wonderful day!

Hi Jan ~~ Glad you had a lovely Mother's Day and the photo of you and Donna and family is really nice. Thank you for your comments, we all seemed to like the Handwriting on the Wall, it was nice. Still waiting on a new modem, but old faithful still works. Thanks for all the nice things
you send and I plan to post some of them soon. Loved the Letter from Heaven but think I have posted it before. Cried all through it AGAIN.
Take care my friend, thinking of you, Love, Merle.

Oh my! Do you know how long it is since I've had garlic prawns? They have such a poor excuse for prawns here....hardly any taste. Nothing like Aussie seafood. I miss it!!!
Your whole meal looks scrumptious. Glad you had such a nice Mother's Day.
