this used to be our family blog entitled "British Royalty versus the Ramsey Clan" (since i'm descended from King Edward II and jon is a descendant from the Ramsay Clan) but since jon never participated, and my mom is the only one who reads this, it is now a format for writing her letters. I mean, for writing you letters, mom.

thanks to jon's transplanting skillz, we now have four lilac bushes in the front yard. thus, my first lilac bouquet from my first owned lilac bushes:

As i was plucking the violet bundles off the bushes, jon remarked, "what's the point of having the bushes if you pluck off all the flowers?" and then belched loud enough to scare birds out of the neighbouring trees...

...then we went inside to find Margie modeling some lilac petals on her collar for us with a big toothy grin:

what a weird family i have.

We had giant white and purple lilac bushes at the old house on the South Side. Oh, I loved the smell when we'd be outside on the trampoline or near the garage. Oh - lovely lilacs!
