Some Updates 

Late in November of last year we lost Mark’s father.  Al lost his battle with cancer and he is dearly missed.  Thank God he only lasted about a week on hospice when the angels took him home.  Sebastian was his buddy and he still looks for him every time he goes to their house.  He knows he’s not in the bed anymore, so he talks to Poppy’s picture instead ūüė¶

Speaking of Sebastian, he’s 18 months old already!  Remember this little guy?

Well, here he is now…

And those sweet little twin babies my son had…

And let’s not forget my two little scholars…

Where does the time go?  I can feel myself aging by the minute!  

Last but not least, some of my latest work…

I hope everybody has been as well as can be expected!!

God bless and keep you all,  Terri

¬†I Was Taught Respect

From a young child
respect was taught
for those whose lives
our safety bought

It mattered not
what badge they wore
more important
the oath they swore

A debt we owed
of gratitude
freely given
without attitude

Killing police
condoned by blacks
proves just what
this country lacks

Following God
His laws to keep
was in our hearts
conviction deep

Yet to believe
today brings scorn
an evil soul
in us was born

If once again
we put God first
He’d prosper us
and lift our curse!

First Grandma, Marian Robinson, to Receive Lifetime $160K Government

First Grandma Marian Robinson to Receive Lifetime $160K Government

Washington D.C. ‚ÄstFirst¬†Grandma Marian Robinson, 79, will receive a¬†lifetime 160K government¬†pension when she leaves the White House next year,according to¬†congressional budget statements.

According to documents obtained through the Freedom of
Information¬†Act¬†(FOIA), Mrs. Robinson earned¬†the lifetime pension¬†for ‚Äúservices rendered as full-time/in-home¬†caregiver‚ÄĚ for¬†granddaughters Malia, 18, and Sasha, 15, during¬†President Obama‚Äôs two¬†terms in office.

In January of 2009, it was reported that Mrs. Robinson was living in the White House full-time to tend to her granddaughters. She was the first live-in grandmother at the White House since Elivera M. Doud, the mother of Mamie Eisenhower, during the Eisenhower

Critics say Mrs. Robinson should not profit from something as simple as taking care of family.

Sally Kellner, volunteer/activist
for the National Taxpayers
Union, says this is a prime example of needless spending.

“I think it’s ridiculous that taxpayers must pay this woman a lifetime salary for something everyday Americans do for free.

We take care of¬†our families because we love them, not for profit.”

When asked if Mrs. Robinson’s lifetime pension was justified, Senator Mike Enzi (R-WY), Chairman of the Senate Budget
Committee, declined to comment but said a special oversight committee would review all post-Obama Administration budgetary

Before her son-in-law became President of the United States, Mrs. Robinson had never been abroad.

Now, after almost eight years of being the nation’s Grandmother-In-Chief, she’s a seasoned world traveler who has, accompanied by her granddaughters, been to Senegal, Tanzania, China and Italy, where she even met the Pope.

‚ÄúShe‚Äôs¬† been the rock of the family,‚ÄĚ says Obama family¬†friend and biographer,¬†Peter Slevin. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs been a real blessing for¬†the girls (Malia &¬† Sasha) to have their grandma with them during¬†these formative years,‚Ä̬†he said.

Shortly¬†after the 2008 presidential election, President¬†Obama called Robinson¬†‚ÄúOne of the unsung heroes‚ÄĚ of his campaign,¬†and said, ‚ÄúWe couldn‚Äôt¬†have done it without her.‚ÄĚ

First Lady Michelle Obama has said that if Robinson had not been available to step in and watch over the girls, Obama might never have launched his campaign.

While¬†holding no official job title, Mrs. Robinson¬†likely qualified for her¬† lifetime pension under the ‚Äúoptional‚Ä̬†eligibility requirement for¬†the¬†Civil Service¬†Retirement
Act (CSRS).

Oh Say Can’t You See

“Stupid is as Stupid Does” Via My Mother

¬†Subject: “Stupid is as Stupid does.”
These events are actual events from history. They really happened!
 Do you remember?
In the 48 years since 1968 and this just keeps going on and on:
1. In 1968, Bobby Kennedy was shot and killed by a Muslim male.
 2. In 1972, at the Munich Olympics, Israeli athletes were kidnapped and massacred by Muslim males.
 3. In 1972, a Pan Am 747 was hijacked and eventually diverted to Cairo where a fuse was lit on final
approach.  Shortly after landing it was blown up by Muslim males
4. In 1973, a Pan Am 707 was destroyed in Rome, with 33 people killed, when it was attacked with grenades by Muslim males.
 5. In 1979, the US embassy in Iran was taken over by Muslim males.
¬†6. During the 1980‘s a number of Americans were¬†kidnapped in Lebanon by Muslim males.
 7. In 1983, the US Marine barracks in Beirut was blown up by Muslim males.
8. In 1985, the cruise ship Achille Lauro was hijacked and a 70-year old American passenger was murdered and thrown overboard in his wheelchair by Muslim males.
 9. In 1985, TWA flight 847 was hijacked at Athens, and a US Navy diver trying to rescue passengers was murdered by Muslim males.
 10. In 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by Muslim males.
 11. In 1993, the World Trade Center was bombed the first time by Muslim males.
12. In 1998, the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed by Muslim males.
13. On 9/11/01, four airliners were hijacked; two were used as missiles to take down the World Trade Centers and of the remaining two, one crashed into the US Pentagon  and the other was diverted and crashed by the passengers.
Thousands of people were killed by Muslim males.
14. In 2002, the United States fought a war in Afghanistan against Muslim males.
15. In 2002, reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnapped and beheaded by Рyou guessed it Рa Muslim male. (Plus two other American journalists who were just recently
16. In 2013, the Boston Marathon Bombing resulted in 4 Innocent people, (including a child) being killed and 264 people injured by Muslim males.
¬†No Obama, I¬†really don’t see a pattern here to justify profiling, do
So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics
intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people.
Now ask¬†yourself “Just how stupid are we???”
Absolutely No¬†Profiling!¬† They must conduct random searches of¬†80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper¬†identification, secret agents who are members of¬† the Obama’s security detail, 85-year-old Congressmen¬†with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner and former¬†Governor Joe Foss,
BUT…….leave Muslim Males alone lest we be guilty of profiling.
So ask yourself again,¬†“Just how stupid are we?”¬† Have the American
people completely lost their minds or just their Power of Reason???
¬†Let ‘s send¬†this to as many people as we can so that the Gloria¬†Alred’s and other stupid attorneys, along with Federal¬†Justices, that want to thwart common sense, feel ashamed¬† of themselves — if they have any such¬†sense.¬†¬†¬† As the writer of the award winning¬†story ” Forrest Gump ” so aptly put it,
“Stupid Is As Stupid Does.”
¬†Each¬†opportunity that you have to send this to a friend or media¬†outlet… Do It!¬†¬† OR JUST SIT BACK, KEEP GRIPING,¬†AND DO NOTHING.
Then you can personally decide from first hand experience if you agree with what OBAMA SAID IN HIS BOOK:¬†“NOTHING¬†SOUNDS SO BEAUTIFUL AS THE MUSLIM EVENING PRAYERS FROM THE TOWER.”

 WAKE UP AMERICA before there is no longer an America to wake up to!!!
