Happy May Day!

Whew! I'm out of breath. It's May 1st already! I scurried around leaving your surprise May Day bouquet by your door.
This is just a sweet sentiment to keep the May Day traditions alive and well. It is a happy wish from me to you, dear family and friends, both near and far, that your Spring will be filled with happiness and joy.

This fine group of young men with their teachers are ready to ride the shuttle to the airport for an ALL EXPENSE paid trip to the World Championship Robotics Competition. The top 8 competitive teams at the State level were advanced to the World Championship. We hope their "robot" brings home a first place honor. This is truly an experience of a lifetime for these young high school students.

Thank you Rachel! I remember this tradition; Mom use to cut her 'bridle wreath's' bush for us to drop sprigs at our neighbors' doors. Yours is just beautiful, is that purple hyacinths in it or lilacs?

Happy May Day to you! Did you ever have a 'May Pole' dance as a child? So much fun!

Linda said...

I think those teachers must be old fogies. Who ever heard of tucking your shirt in like that anyway? Why, those old men must be at least 40!!! Don't they know it's not cool to wear your shirt tucked in?

Hi Rachel,
Happy May Day to you, thank you for the beautiful flowers they are stunning.
Cheers Linda
