On this special day set aside for dads everywhere I want to share a photo of my dad when he was all of 18 serving in the Cavalry at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. 

My dad Clarence L Smith from Houston Texas is on the left and his buddy Bill Spade from Saginaw Michigan is on the right. 
My father loved working with horses all his life and the Cavalry was the perfect place for him!

I have many great memories of my dad, he was an outdoorsman who was happiest living close to the land. He built the first home we lived in in Splendora Texas and built it so well it withstood a tornado. He had a sarcastic sense of humor that took no prisoners, and in spite of some glaring faults I love and miss him still!

For all the dads out there I wish you a wonderful day filled with joyous memories!

My Little Men!

I just had to share this photo of my 2 gorgeous little grandsons, Oliver and his brother Remy! 

Since day one they have been close and I hope they always will be so.....

Recently I crocheted them each an octopus and here is Oliver with his...

Oliver and Remy wrestling with the catapillars Nana sent them a few months ago!

I used to look at photos of crocheted animals people had made their children or grandkids and think "geez who has time to do all those handmade things?" well now I know... Nana does!

Have a wonderful weekend and smile for no other reason than it brightens the world up!!!

Well I think it is about time to update the old page! This weekend I am going to get into that saddle and relearn what my poor little brain has forgotten about this whole process! 
In the meantime here are the 2 most recent paintings I finally finished and listed on Ebay!

I have thought of you all often and hope this day finds you all well!
