I've been married forever (45 years!)

my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have ...

Hi Liz,
I'm bored already with the parties vying for my vote with pathetic promises of Lord knows what.
I've come to realise Manifestos are manifestly lies upon empty promises.
However.......our country is in a sound position right now and on the UP thanks to the current Liberal Democrats and Conservatives and I want to keep that going, if Labour got in we'd be back to square one in months.
They actually left a note in 10 Downing Street when they left office that read " sorry ..........no money left" I KID YOU NOT! emoticon

Roll on May 7th when it will all be over. Please God don't let Labour in!!!! emoticon

Thanks for the bloglove on my Missing Mama in Springtime post. I know that eventually missing mama will be one of my favorite things ... now it's a little too sharp an emotion to not be bitter-sweet - but I'd still rather miss her than forget her.

Hugs and flowers to you.
