we were in ruston for my grandfathers funeral last week…

HELLO THE UNIVERSE:  (assuming you are listening…  wow, Big Assumption there) our families have had more than our fair share of hospitals, funerals, visitations and sicknesses for quite some time – just move on, please…  there you go, move right along…

sheesh…

here are some jasper sightings while at the visitation – she was entertained by her neena and her new friend, wyatt, who was a great little babysitter while i visited with people that i recognized but had no idea what their names were…  which was pretty much everybody because that is how long it has been…  my inner monolgue for the night was, “hmm, i know that face, who is that person?  eek!  they are coming towards me!  name, daune, name!!”

just so you know, i still had to ask them to remind me of who they were…  every time…   turns out yelling at yourself in your head does not scare your memory into working…  good to know…

wyatts mother (kay bond!!  janelle, remember kay bond!!!  wow…) had a camera and she graciously allowed both her boy and my girl to take pictures of each other and all the visitors – kept them busy and it was a good perspective of a jasper’s world view (from the crotch down, by the way!)…  mom let jasper  use her camera too and i am going to get some shots that jasper took to post at a later date…   so you will just have to wait 🙂

wyatt, the dog (a pomeranian with some kind of skin disorder…  don’t ask) paige and jasper lilith…  all keeping each other entertained quite successfully…

here are mom and jasper talking a stroll around the pond at pat and roberts house…

we stayed at my aunt pats house and it was good to see them again… although we really need to get together under better circumstances – this time was paw-paws funeral and last time was while paw-paw was in i.c.u…  maybe this summer when janelle and her clan come into town, huh?

(shout out:  thanks for housing all of us, aunt pat, and i hope uncle robert is doing well!!!!)
