Lillian and Thomas Talk on the Phone

**THROWBACK POST**

April 26 2010:

Listening to Lillian talk to Thomas on the phone! What a hoot!

He keeps asking her questions & doesn’t understand her answers. He can’t read yet so she can’t send a text message!

I hear him saying the same things I say to her, “Just say yes or no”!! If he were here he would be telling her “Go get your phone/device and tell me”! This would be sad if I didn’t choose to have a sense of humor about it!!

Moonlight Swim and Smoking Keyboard and Silly and Gazpacho

May 28 2018

First moonlight swim of the season. Thomas and I had the pool to ourselves. Ahhhhh … I’m so relaxed now.

My fingers and keyboard are smoking. Just got done writing something that came forth during the Alchemist Theatre presents “Resistance” event tonight. I love being in the “zone” like that. Except I forget to breathe sometimes! Oops! Thank you Alchemist Theatre peeps!! Love you much and now I’m off to bed! I could not go to bed with all that floating in my heart! xoxo

I may be mistaken. Yet, I don’t think it’s likely the water in the kettle will heat this way. Attempt #2 forthcoming …. 😂😜

I posted this on facebook and many friends commented they had done this and worse … So, I have created a group for us: Absent Minded Stove Users United …. Hahaha!!

Not quite as yummilicious as freshly made. Yet, still, oh so yummy!! Love, love, love gazpacho!!! I could have this for lunch every day!!

Took Thomas & Lillian to the Kid’s Fair on Saturday! They had so much fun!

Thomas & Lillian at Idlewild Park.

Thomas not so sure about the dude who keeps trying to get him to do a somersault.

He wanted to pick the balls up and throw them!

Most exciting part ~ diggin in the sand!
