Pics from L.J.’s Senior Trip

Good morning, y’all.

In Times Square with the cowboy guy.

Just thought I’d share some pictures L.J. took while on his senior trip. The one thing he wanted to do in New York was play his guitar on Times Square, but he wasn’t permitted to carry it with him. (Lack of luggage space on the bus). His last night in New York, he was walking to the Hard Rock Cafe to meet his classmates for dinner. As chance would have it, he met the naked cowboy. Lol.  He let L.J. borrow his guitar long enough to play a song on Times Square. After all the cool things he saw, there are two things he can’t stop talking about–the changing of the guards at Arlington…and playing the naked cowboy’s guitar. Lol. Enjoy the pics!

A Charmed Giveaway…

May is always a busy month for me. Usually school gets out the last week of this month. Volleyball practice starts for the girls, cheer fundraisers, and now church camp fundraisers too. L.J. graduates high school this month. Saturday, he and his senior class will be leaving for the senior trip to Washington, D.C. and New York.

May is also the month for birthdays. My daughter Anna and I share the same birthday, May 12. To celebrate, this year I’m giving the presents to you. (Well, Anna will still get her share of presents, lol.)

I’m giving one lucky winner a signed copy of Charmed. To enter just click the “A charmed giveaway” page tab and fill out the form. Winner will be announced Saturday, May 12. This contest is open to everyone except where prohibited by law. Good luck!
