Rhett, the 3rd Place Spelling Bee Winner!

Posted by Picasa

Today I am thankful for my Daddy. Today is his 84th birthday. What a blessing!

Yesterday I was thankful and oh so proud of our son Rhett. He drew the #3 and came in 3rd place in his spelling bee! I always said 3 was my lucky number. I guess it was his too. I know Rhett was upset because he misspelled his word and had to sit out. I had my arm around him telling him it was okay and not to cry. Then I realized he'd come in 3rd and would receive the 3rd place trophy to bring home.

Daddy had a dr's appointment so they missed the bee, but arrived afterwards for the reception. I, of course took plenty of photos. This one was one of the best and I think says it all. His principal excused him for the remainder of the day and I had to go back to work where Illy tried to stir up stuff, but I didn't let her spoil my day. It doesn't get much better than your son winning. Rhett even took his trophy to church last night! LOL I am surprised he didn't want to sleep with it, but he probably didn't think of it. Our preacher took photos of Rhett with his tropy and with us also for the bulletin board at church.

I had bought Daddy and us one of those new digital picture frames that holds 3,000 photos on it, but I am not having much luck with it. How do you make a copy of a memory card besides on a cd? I don't want to leave my memory card in it as I may need it later. Our computer at home doesn't connect to the internet properly even after having been serviced back in the summer. My zip drives do not fit into the frame. So I am pretty frustrated staying up late trying various things without much success. I will just have to tell him his gift will be late with apologies. Hopefully I can figure this out if it kills me, but hopefully not!

I am thankful for to my muse for the poetry that has come to me lately. Please see my previous post.

Thanks on both accounts, Denise. Thank you Newlyweds for the compliment, congrats & birthday wishes. Thanks, Paulie. I think he is a cutie too but then I am prejudice. LOL Yes, I FINALLY got the digital photo frame to work. I deleted the pics I didn't want on it. Now just trying to figure out how to load more from another memory card. Thank you Serendipity.
