I'm kinda new to this forum. But, I figured I'd stop by here and introduce myself. My name is Marjorie M. Midwood. I was rumbling around the proverbial jail house the last few days and finally broke free about 5:30 this morning. My momma, Cathy Guthrie and my pappa, Ramsay Midwood were on hand for the occasion, as well as my grandma, Jackie.

Anyway, here's the funny part. I showed up and the first thing I saw was this guy in a top hat standing there with a strange look in his eyes. He was asking me if I could see my shadow! Hell, I couldn't hardly see anything as I was blinded by the lights of this Texas sky. I didn't know what to say so I started screaming and yelling. I don't think anyone else saw this guy, but my grandpa heard me yelling over the telephone and I'm pretty sure he understood what was happening. That's why I asked him to write this introduction - he gets it.

I gave up trying to explain it all to the crowd there, and went about the business of being me. I couldn't care less about whether winter was going to be longer or shorter. And I sure as hell wasn't going back to where I'd been. That being said, I wore myself out and and I'm settling into life as we know it.

I'll write more in a few years when I get around to figuring out how to do it.

M.M.M.

Congrats! More grandkids!You're getting quite a collection! Strangley enough, I happened to talk to Annie on the phone yesterday and she told me Cathy had her baby this morning, but she didn't say which Cathy! And since I was not aware of any Cathy's having babies, it went right by me.

My sweet congrats to Cathy, Ramsay, Arlo, and Jackie on the blessing of God's precious gift. What a nice Groundhog Day present as well :D May Marjorie's life be filled with love and happiness.
To want to share with all of youse that yesterday (Feb 2) my Mom celebrated her 60th birthday. Seems like February is a huge month for birthdays Lincolns, Washington's, Sarah Lee's, and I'm sorry if I left anybody else out. Also don't forget national holidays like Valentine's Day hehe.

Peace and Love,
Lorie

Congrats to all! Guess if she couldn't wait until the month of July, Groundhog Day is next best.
