Weekly Winners


I think she wanted a sister


No Peek Chicken and Steamed Asparagus

Is there something on my face?

They named a street after her

The wonderfully talented and witty Lotus at Sarcastic Mom is the founder of and inspiration for the Weekly Winners movement. I urge you to visit her and see her photographic brilliance, and the ‘nekkid’ butt kid.

I talked to my Dad a bit ago. My Dee is getting weaker. He’s having a harder time breathing and they’ve upped his morphine to help him. He is 93 years old and has lived an amazing life. Please join us in praying for a peaceful and easy passing, before he gets worse. Please send up prayers for a quick and painless passing as well as strength for the rest of the family.
