As you know our playlist this week is a very big deal. Zach with his #1 hits from 3/25 throughout the years and mine being country that went main stream during the 80's. River said Mike and the Mechanics reminded his mom of someone. And my Mom keeps thinking about her Dad's parents lately.
Zach did his John Wayne imitation the other day on his BooBoo shot comments section and started bragging about Grandpa being in the movies with John Wayne and Ronald Reagan, he was just an extra people don't get excited. But it's still cool. Grandpa flew bombers that was damaged or needed work on them, to Texas when he was in the Army. He had to crash land more than he wanted to remember. He always wore a cowboy tie and was burried with his Tiger Eye Cowboy Tie on and with 50 flash lights cause he wouldn't change the batteries in one, he would just buy a new one.
And just now, Zach was talking to Kitcat about how Mom wishes she could do a page on her Grandmother. She would have been liked for sure. She was Aunt Bee in the flesh just skinner but with the same hair too. Her cooking, Paula Deen, step aside and let grandma show you how it's done!
We used to fight over her dressing at Thanksgiving and then she would bring out another casserole dish of it. God Bless her. She was always kind and soft spoken. Funny when she wanted to be. One of those people that every one was drawn to like a bee to a flower. She was so patient with us kids, running around, tracking mud in her house and making mudpies in her good dishes.
Mom just felt like saying she misses them and wanted them to be remembered too. Sorry if anyone gets mad about a diary about humans. It just poured out of Mom and yes she's a little teary eyed but not bad. They've been gone sense her mid 20's.
If you feel like it you can share your memories too.

Your grandparents sound like they were really great. I want to see Zach's John Wayne imitation again. Hey, I think you are getting tuxies mixed up - I was the one who said that the Mike and the Mechanics song "In the Living Years" reminded Mom of someone (just wanted to let you know :) ) Unless River said the same thing?
Have I said Mom's a dodo yet? Oh yeah, I wrote a whole diary on it. That's okay, there's one family that has a Tuxxie kitten and Mom called her a little dude like 5 times. It became a joke in between Mom and her Mother. You know what cured it? Mom sent her a note saying just this....
Oreo- girl Oreo- girl Oreo- girl, she wrote that like 10 times.
Oreo's Mom was rolling. But it worked!
MOL! Hey, buddy, no worries. Our mom's a dodo sometimes, too! She always tries to post on Catster without making dumb typos, but just can't seem to. I bet that little tuxie girl liked being called little dude! Or maybe she could have been little dudette?
Got it Dudette. Oreo- Dudette
I like that you shared your stories with us! They really seem like wonderful people. I bet the stories they told were awesome. Sometimes my Mom gets to thinking about family members that are no longer with us. It is sad that they are not here, but they left us so many great stories and memories. Purrs and hugs, Maedia
PS Tomorrow, when I have more time, I am going to check out your playlist..
I love you Maedia. Your so sweet.
I liked that you shared your stories - they seem like great people.
