So proud of Silas

Today Silas got to meet a hometown hero - Jim Cotter - who has made national news with his goal pf painting our little town - one house, one building, on bridge at a time. Mr Cotter has made a HUGE impact on our lives and Silas was thrilled to have met him AND helped him to paint one of the abandoned storefronts.

To learn more about Jim Cotter, see the links below.
He truly is inspirational.

Also... I filed my first news footage for Channel 10 with this story!
They used my film in part of this story. I was thrilled!

With my luv Jerrod in Columbus

Sigh... we didn't ride on the Pedal Wagon, but it is definitely on my to do list for another time.

 Love me some Columbus.. especially on the Short North. The above is our view from The new Hyatt.
 Oh yes... this is me taking a pee. But the 80's bar and restroom was awesome!

 I have found my people! And they dance in their undies at Axis!
 Jerrod, Kevin and Merve. What a fun group of boys for me (and Malinda) to play with.

 Hanging out with Jerrod... introduced him to Indian food and sushi. I feel as tho I accomplished something.
 Before heading out for the night... a few selfies by the glow of the sunset.
Strippers. Short North. Gay bar. Oh yes... Mama T had a blast.

XXOO.. thanks Jerrod.

Pics my crew sends to me

Game night! (I lost)

Labor Day at the Cousin's Pool!

 It was wonderful! I had all my grandkids, my nephew and my youngest son - and my daughter - all with me. It was a great time seeing everyone too!

And these funky clouds rolled in! Kinda looked like a bunch of butts to me.

A day with the 2 oldest granddarlings!
