The adventures of Gilly the rescue horse and his side kick and partner in crime, Pokey the donkey.

August 1st, Jennifer's birthday............

Today is our daughter Jennifer's birthday, this is the card I made her! I love making cards.........I use the program "The Print Shop Design Suite-Professional Edition" You can add your own pictures and really have some you can see Pokey is featured in the card also on the inside pictured below......well, I guess you can figure out how old Jennifer is........LOL.....not hard, huh?

Little Pokey in the picture above had been having a fit, and I do mean a fit because Gilly was out and he wasn't. A real temper tantrum.......... so hence the term, "an ass kickin' day"

I found these neat flip-flops on line at a site that donates some of the proceeds to help animal shelters and rescues. I got her quite a few things and some for me too!!! Hey, it's for the animals, right!!!??? This picture was taken at her dad's office before we headed out to lunch.
Jennifer just bought this Chevy Trail Blazer a few months ago, she loves it!! It is one nice ride. She has a canoe that she takes out on the ponds and creeks around here so she needed something to haul all her "stuff" and this does it really nicely; her dog Sophie loves it too!
What a treat for me, Jennifer drove today.........I'm liking that!!!We went to a really nice little cafe for lunch and sat outside in the shade of the big sycamore trees along Third Street. Jennifer not too happy about me taking her picture, like her father.........well, I think it's a good picture.

We were waiting for the girl to bring out our lunch so I stepped back and snapped this picture. Jennifer is happier with this one, she has her sunglasses on.

Who is that behind those Foster Grants???? Gee, must be some movie star, ya think????
This is one of the old restored buildings in Marietta; this is across the street from the cafe were we were sitting. Not sure if it was a school house or fire station, will have to check on that..........anyway it is a very nice building.This side of the street is lined with sycamore trees. Not a tree that I am crazy about but the second one out is particularly pretty with the mottled white bark.
After lunch we went to a coffee shop called Stoked, boy, do they ever have some WONDERFUL coffee creations! All kinds, hot and iced plus some fruit freezes that are positively yummy! We also picked up some chocolate covered coffee beans.............oh, yea, that's just what I need; I'll be wired all night after eating a few of those babies!!!!!
Took Mike in a sandwich and piece of Snickers Pie for the cafe and stuffed him........I am hoping that maybe I won't have to cook tonight???? I sure am not hungry.........I just need a nap!!!
No, wait I eat those chocolate covered coffee beans.......I'll be up all night!!!! ugh!

May I add my birthday wishes to yours? What a great card and wonderful photos. When our daugher was born, I never for one moment thought she would become an adult.But she did, and is, and I love her to pieces. It is amazing how precious our children are, no matter what the age. And my daughter makes sense, and I take her seriously when she tells me something. It is so wonderful; knowing an adult I can trust, and who loves me, and misses me, too. What a great gift. Yours is a loving tribute.
