To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

MEMORIAL DAY HIGHLIGHTS
I do so hope you enjoyed your holiday weekend.
These are a few everyday living moments in
Atlanta and in Texas.
The Divine Miss M stopped in at Costco
for a rotisserie chicken and.....
well you know how a little time spent in Costco ends up.....
Just look at these delicious Strawberry- Rhubarb pies.
In fact, Luke the Duke was treated to a
first morning of summer vacation with pie for breakfast.
The family enjoyed an evening out to dinner
and then a minor league baseball game.
Our Nick and Catherine enjoyed a date night
at an upscale Ft. Worth restaurant....
in fact, the same one he proposed at.
We planned a day of sunning by the pool
while the pit masters smoked a brisket,
but the day was hot, humid and overcast.
Bo managed to be the only one in the pool
and then enjoyed his little cabana to keep
his Daddy in good company while tending to the smoker.
We enjoyed a great few days with Rob
who had a few days off and drove up from Austin.....
he and I did a shopping trip and I sent
him home with a new crockpot and new kitchen tools..
his Mom (me) is determined to turn him into a home chef!
We had all enjoyed a weekend of cooking, eating,
shopping and a few movies, so when Sunday evening
rolled around, we decided to try an evening out to dinner.
We thoroughly enjoyed Lazy Dog....
the outdoor patio is reserved for
people who bring along their four-legged fur babies.
Oh, how I love a Texas themed dining spot!
Now how cool is this?
The appetizers of lettuce wraps......
A trio of hummus and fresh veggies.....
The best Chicken Tortilla Soup I have had in ages.....
The darling opted for a fresh Chicken Ceaser Salad
