My Friends ~ You Guys are the Best!

Thursday, April 15, 2010



I have to admit, I am late posting anything because I have been “stuck”. Not that I can’t think of any M words, I just haven’t had a definite impression as to what to say or how to say it.

But I do have M*E*M*O*R*I*E*S. As a matter of fact, I am pretty sure some of my M-memories would seem rather ancient to many of you who normally link to Alphabe-Thursday.

Ahhhh ~ I loved running home after to school to watch the Mouseketeers!

Remember Moochie from Spin and Marty fame?

(Yeah, Spin was my favorite, too!)

Wouldn’t it be wonderful, if our days were as simple as those days in Mayberry?

One of my all time favorite M’s ~ Thomas Magnum, P.I.

So let me just say ~ “Thanks for the Memories, A sentimental verse and nothing in my purse ~” (Bob Hope’s theme song)

A trip down Memory Lane is always special, but my favorite "M" quote happened just this morning. And naturally, it came from the "M" granddaughter,Michaela.

"Mamaw, I need a washcloth. I have waffle juice on me." (Waffle Juice? I'm pretty safe in assuming it was Maple Syrup. She was very sticky!)

Be sure and take time to go by the marvelous Jenny Matlock's site to checkout the magnificent M posts from men and women everywhere!



  1. Thanks for the many memories.....we must be the same age! Happy Alphabet Thursday....stop by my blog if you get a chance!

  2. I am little younger but loved the Mouseketeers in reruns! I can still sing all the songs, much to my childrens embarrassment! Love your M post!

  3. I have all those memories too. I must be ancient like you LOL. Your little granddaughter sounds cute with the waffle juice ;-)

  4. I loved the waffle juice story! Aren't kids the greatest?

    M I C K E Y Mouse! And I have to tell you that the REAL reason that I do ironing at our house is because I watch Andy Griffith DVD's while I iron! lol

    Thanks for stopping by for a visit today, Cheryl. I appreciated your insight.

  5. Memories are a wonderful thing. They keep alive the people we miss.
    I love the waffle juice story. Little kids are so adorable!

  6. Dianna, we bought the Andy Griffith DVDs and both dh and I decided, whatever they paid Don Knotts back then, it wasn't enough! LOL

    So calming to sit and watch some of the old shows.

  7. We really like Andy Griffith too and watch it on dvd since we can't get it here. What good memories, but I love the waffle juice the best!

  8. Waffle juice? I love it. The world through the eyes of kids is a unique blessing from God. Thanks for sharing!
