Meanwhile on Vine

So far...Vine is pretty stupid.  But, this does not stop me.
And it is true, the teens love it and dumb boys.
And people who love to swear.

I am officially the oldest person on Vine.

This idea sprang from Emma's pretty little head.


This is from last year at this time.



Early spring

This was last March 31 in Chicago.
The tulips were so early!!!

Keep looking UP!

Love you,


  1. Mmm pie :-)

    My how Asher has grown! And Katie too!

    I can't see "vine" on my kindle - it will have to wait til I return home.

    Hahahahaha!!!! "You guys ready for the par-tay??" "Crunch." So clever!! :)

    Asher's expression as he navigates the curb, Katie's glowing face in her hands, and pretty posies. So, so precious.

    Happy weekend to all!

  5. Katie's face... Asher! Emma really is funny. She has a bit of her mom in her. Your photos inspire me. xoxo

  6. I missed something since I don't have a clue what Vine is. It can't decide if it wants to be winter or spring here. I think spring is finally winning the battle. The azaleas are just beginning to bloom.

    I used to wonder why our children had to be so honest with me about my endeavors and now I see that I am not alone. Only a child would say, "You are kinda obsessed with vine." And, I don't think you are the oldest person on it at all, but you are the smartest and have the 'funnest' vines. You and Katie and Emma just made my day and made me smile really big. Thank you!

    I remember those beautiful tulips. Hopefully this year they are just waiting for the sunshine and for you to come with your camera.
    love and prayers, jep

  8. Vine is like Instagram but makes 6 sec videos with your phone.

  9. I love everything about this post. Thanks for making my day. And're as old as you feel!

    In the pics of your family...girls in standing around watching. Great slice of life!

    1. Janice in the top picture Matthew is making his tiny attempt to ''jump' with Asher. :o)

  11. Funny girls, funny mama! are so hip and cool, Donna Elsie. I can't even figure out instagram. Just me and my Dumb Phone (-: Charging it up is more than I can handle.

    Your "pie chart" made John laugh hard this morning. He was up to his brains in paper grading, and he was feeling quite discouraged. It was good to share the QL love with him. QL - the gift that keeps on giving.

    Final four games tonight...I still have a chance to win our family bracket, so I am off to do more trash talking with Zack on facebook (-: Go Louisville!!!!!!!!

    Much love,

    So glad you printed Emma's words.........I listened over and over and couldn't make out what she was saying about you being the oldest person on it.

    LOVE the family portrait, only missing you! Patrick in his usual stoic pose and the girls action it! Karen F.

  13. I have never heard of vine.

    Your pictures are lovely, Donna.

    Have a great Sunday!

  14. I love this so much. The videos are great. I watched the second one again, it made me laugh out loud. Seriously, I'm still laughing. I might have to get that app or something like it. :)

  15. great post, I am interesting in it!
