These are a Few of His Favorite Things

30 Apr

This must be sung to the tune of My Favorite Things from the Sound of Music.

Taking long weekend to drive to Virginia
stopping at friends house to metal detect
finding old buttons I cannot ID
these are a few of my favorite things

Visiting family, boy it’s good to see them
my birthday brother and sister in law
teasing my mother and holding my niece
these are a few of my favorite things

Watching some rugby with my little brother
Seeing his soccer team win their game too
battlefields, eating out, birthday yogurt,
these are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites, when the bee stings,
when I’m feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
and then I don’t feel so bad.

No, it didn’t rhyme and yes, it WAS painful.
Now here are his favorite things in pictures.

On his way up to Virginia this weekend, Papa Bear stopped off to metal detect at a friends house and found this old button.  On the back it reads, “D.Klein and Bros, Philly”.  So far there no clue as to what the TS stands for.

 Hangin out with the VA branch of the family…

And Ma England who’s visiting the VA branch and her new granddaughter.

And of course Little Miss T herself!  I’m so lovin her little hands in this picture…

Saturday, PB and his brother R got out to Quantico see a rugby match between the Royal Marines and the rugby team there on base.  In case your wondering, the Royal Marines won.

After the rugby match, PB and his brother swung by Salem Church where in 1863, Union and Confederate troops clashed resulting in 5,000 casualties.  In case your wonderings, the Confederates won.

Saturday night it was out for dinner to celebrate R’s 39th birthday.

And then out for yogurt desserts!  My desire to go out and buy a yogurt maker is so incredibly strong right now…

R’s actual birthday was on Sunday and how did he celebrate?  By playing soccer.  They won too, 4-0.  Their first shut out.  I told PB that maybe R should have birthdays more often when they play.  Good for the team…not so good for R though.

Sounds to me like a good time was had by all.

I’m sorry but I just had to put this back on here. I’m hungry.
