  1. Hey ladies!

    Looks like a blast. Was it a wonderful town? :)

    Seems you had FUN!! With work and everything too. Ha!

    What a week in Seekerville. Congrats to all the winners, hey! That includes me! I partied with the best at this fabulous celebration, and won a prize too!! Imagine that!

    Seriously, it was a great time and reason to celebrate what He has done. The congrats really belong to the Seekers.

    (Glad y'all mentioned THAT ending too. Ugh...)

    Have a great Sunday, and remember to hug a veteran. Thank you, all military families!

    PS: TCM has a great military movie marathon going

  2. May I just say you both look great on little sleep and a lot of humidity? Not a bad hairstyle between you.

    Looking forward to hearing about your adventures. Just icing on the cake on top of a blessed last week.

    Echoing KC, let's remember those who have given their lives or the lives of their loved ones for our country.

    Peace, Julie

  3. Congrats to the winners. What a great week although Tina and Ruthy slipped right past my exit before the paint was dry on my placard...

    The Pam party was a blast. I baked pumpkin cake. No, it's not very Memorial Day-ish but it still tastes great.

  4. Wooohooo Pam!!!!

    Thanks for the pics, ladies. Looks like an amazing time.

  5. Can't wait to hear all the BEA and the road trip.

    You two look GREAT after a long, hot walk with little sleep!

    Hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day I have a movie date with Captain Jack Sparrow today! ; )

  6. Congratulations to all the winners! Wow, what a list. Actually congrats extend all around to the high school and college grads, too (lots of grad parties going in Colorado).

    Ruthy, Tina, great teaser for Tuesday. Loved the pics of Melissa and thanks for catching one of Rachel. Nice putting faces with names.

    Looks like a great week ahead. Can't wait.

  7. Wish I could have been there. Oh, yeah, jealousy is bad, right?

    Here's a fresh pot of coffee.

    Looking forward to another great week, and spending my anniversary with Thelma and Louise.


  8. Congratulations to all the winners!

    Can't wait to hear about the Tina and Ruth road trip.

    Hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial weekend.


  9. Hi Tina & Ruth:

    I really like the way you alternate square with round stepping stones. I’m going to do that too. Is that your yard, Ruth? (BTW: I always thought you were really tall. Maybe you write ‘tall’.)

    Do you know how large those pictures are when you click on them? You can count eyelashes! Brave, brave, souls you be.

    I hope you all have a great cookout this weekend.

    Until then…


  10. Vince, that is my parents yard in the country in Western New York. That is where I am still visiting today. I've told her your compliment and she says thank you.

    Tina RAdcliffe

  11. My mother I mean :)


  12. My goodness...I'm totally not with it...What does BEA mean?? But it looks like you had FUN! Thanks so much for the prize pack, WOW! I'll send my info shortly. :-)))

  13. Congrats to all the winners!! And I cannot wait to read all about Tina and Ruthy's great adventures! ~ Happy Memorial Day weekend to everyone...GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!
    Hugs from Georgia, Patti Jo

  14. Thanks for sharing the photos, ladies!! I'm so glad you didn't sail over a cliff. So over-rated and copy cat.


    Welcome back!

  15. Vince, Ruthy is a little thing. She just talks big. ;)

  16. Hi, Ladies! Mary C. asked last week about places to donate to the Joplin tornado victims. My cousin, Jesse McKee, had no insurance, was the family bread winner, and left a wife and three kids. Jesse was a wonderful husband and father, loved the Lord, was faithful in the church and the community, and served previously as an Air Force airman. I would appreciate your prayers. The family is totally devastated.

    Here's a link to his obituary which tells how to donate to the McKee fund if anyone feels inclined: www(dot)clarkfuneralhomes(dot)com/sitemaker/sites/clarkf0/obit(dot)cgi?user=392555McKee.

    The funeral will be Wednesday. Thanks for all your love and support. It's been a rough week.

  17. GREAT pics, ladies.
    So glad you survived and had fun too.
    So glad New York City survived your presence too ;-)
    Tina - you and Ruthy look FAB!

  18. Congratulations to all the winners this week! What a bunch!

    Thanks to my Seeker Sisters and all the Friends of Seekerville for making Monday such a day to remember. What a blast!

    And, Ruthy & Tina, you really DID drive a powder blue mustang convertible in NYC.

    I had no idea!!!

    I wouldn't have drove it off a cliff either. That's just plain stupid. ;0

  19. Linnette, hugs and prayers for your family. God will get you through this.

    They sang a song tonight at church. Safe in His Arms.

    Jesse's safe in His arms now.

    Hugs, lady!

  20. What awesome photos, Tina and Ruthy! You both look fabulous!!!

    Can't wait to hear the report on BEA. Am very relieved to hear no cliffs were involved.

    Wishing everyone a wonderful Memorial Day.

  21. Im late was feeling bad again yesterday today I think I may just survive.

    congrats all winners the road trip looks interesting and cant wait for more info.

  22. Thanks for sharing some of your pictures. It looks like you ladies had a blast. Congrats to the winners!

  23. Tina, you and Ruthy may have walked 30 blocks, but I couldn't tell. You both looked great!

    And isn't Ruthy a New Yorker? Or isn't the humidity as bad out in the boonies? :D

    Congrats to all the winners.

    Anita Mae.
