Cinderella, Linvilla, News and Fragments…


Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, “Heard” items, and other small gems and put them together in a Friday Fragments post. Then leave a link to your Friday Fragments post and leave a link back to Half-Past Kissin’ Time in your post.

I would love to read your Fragment’s. Sign up here:

We had a wonderful time with our lil birthday girls last weekend. It’s all bittersweet for me. For the last eighteen-years we have either had a baby in our family or were expecting one. Not having a baby in the family is going to take some getting used to. John does not want to take the crib down at our house. He is afraid as soon as he does hmmm…

I am determined to live in and enjoy the moments with them, now.

The celebrations continued with Adriana’s last T’ball game yesterday.  Today I took Adriana and Peyton to see Cinderella at our local theatre.  It was a surprise. At first they were scared of the wicked stepmother and stepsisters. Once they realized everyone was laughing at them they relaxed.

After the play we went to visit Linvilla Orchards, a popular local farm.

From the theatre to the dirt pile. These are my granddaughters, for sure!

It sure has been another crazy news week. Is he a POW, a traitor; CIA  and how about his Dad. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Our Philadelphia country station [WXTU] has a free anniversary concert every year. I was at the first one they ever had thirty-years ago and every one of them for twenty-eight-years and oh my how it has grown. I did not go last year or the year before because suddenly the event, become a dangerous, drunk fest. My husband pointed out that almost every new country song is about drinking which may explain a lot. When I think like this I fear I am getting old and cranky.

This is my 401st post.

I received one of my most favorite reviews to date the other day and guess who it was from:

I am going to North Carolina on Wednesday, after taking a tour of a new concert venue at Sun Studio’s. My friend Joelle, who passed away in February, her seventeen-year-old daughter is graduating from high school and her six-year-old son is graduating from kindergarten. I am so proud of both of them and I know their Mama is one proud angel.

A bridge on I-95 South in Maryland has tilted. Officials closed the bridge so my drive to North Carolina will take a little bit longer.

There is a bridge in Philadelphia that actually shakes. It is terrifying to be stuck in traffic on that thing. I wonder if anyone checked to see if that one was tilting. I’m not sure there is a way around that one.

Hey it’s almost summer! What fun plans do you have on your summer bucket list? What are you planning to read? I have a recommendation. The lovely Rebecca Rasmussen’s [Bird Sisters] second novel, EVERGREEN will release July 15. It is available now for pre-release.


Have a Blessed weekend,

My Favorite Post this week

I can’t tell you when I started to like country music but I can tell you when I fell in love with it.

Back in 1975 on a highway somewhere between Chicago and Philadelphia, a little old van caught my eye. In the window was a poster of a Dixie flag and the word Wildcountry.
