Rebel Without a Cause

Rebel Without a Cause 009

Brody thought he was pretty cool when Devan put those tattoos on him. Indeed, he does seem like a rebel sometimes. He loves it outside but he is a fast little bugger, too bad grandma isn’t. I don’t dare take him for a walk and not use the stroller. I tried that once and it was a pretty dumb idea. He started running ahead of me when we got down by the river. He took off like a shot toward the river back because he wanted to throw rocks in the river. I took off as fast as I can and got to him before he got too close but it scared the bejeezer’s out of me. So I learned my lesson. No more walks without the stroller. He might not like that idea but he will just have to deal with it unless his brother and sister are with us or his mom takes him.

Bill finally bought himself a new toy. I don’t know why he didn’t buy one years ago as we have a pretty big yard to mow. The first time he mowed this year with the push mower took a lot out of him. I don’t think he’s totally back to normal after getting the pacemaker so it really tired him out. It made me nervous too so I kept looking out to make sure he was ok. We hated to spend the money for what these cost but in the end it’s worth if it makes it easier for him. All I can say is thank God for that 30 day even heart monitor for without it I really think the worse would have happened. I jokingly said that I was going to drive it up to the bar on granny’s night out. Wouldn’t that be a hoot? Now Bill gets mad that the grass doesn’t grow fast enough lol. You know what they say about men and boys and the price of their toys!

Josh is such a monkey. That kid will climb anything and there isn’t much that scares him. This was taken out of my dining room window. Not only that,  he’s very creative. Would you believe that he made a billfold out of duck tape? It even had slots for cards and DL license in it. I wish I had a picture of it because it was the neatest thing. I guess it’s true that you can use duct tape for just about anything lol. He takes old cereal boxes and cardboard and make ramps for his finger sized skate boards. I’m amazed at his imagination.
It’s time for me to get cracking around here. Hope you all are well and good. Well, maybe not good hehe. See ya soon!

  2. Hi Sis.. See you are blogging again. I don't think I could do it again. Facebook is too darn easy to find out what people are up to. At least you and Beth put your links on here so I can read them. xo

  3. Cute picture of Brody. Glad to see Bill got himself a new mower. Sure wish Jim would do the same thing. He can be so stubborn sometimes.

  4. Brody is turning into quite the little man. And hey... most chicks dig tattoos, so he's definitely got it going on. However Grandma Sherry... I would draw the line at body piercings, or wait till he's at least 5. :)
    Good for Bill, his new toy is awesome. Now did HE buy it to do the lawn or did YOU buy it for him to get him out of the house? Either way, I guess he wins!!! And yes, I would like very much to see you drive that mower up to the bar on granny's night! The next thing you know, your lady friends will be expecting you to buy one of those utility trailers that attach to the mower.... so that you can haul their cute a**es home when they have one too many!
    Josh has quite the imagination, that's a good thing, as he'll never be bored. Why just take a look at me, I have quite the imagination and I'm never bored. *wink wink*
