Men

Besides my favorite guys here at home their are a couple of other guys that I would like to honor today. One because it would of been his birthday today and the other because he won an award yesterday.


The first one is my Grandpa, Cecil Wescott. Today was my Grandpa's birthday. Grandpa died 7 years ago and there isn't a day that goes by that I haven't thought about him. I am so lucky to have had such a wonderful man for a grandfather. Grandpa taught us about gardening, respect for nature, diet and nutrition and so many other things. He would take us out to his garden and have us help pick veggies. Grandpa would explain to us how the veggies grew and how important it was to have good soil. He kept journals of his garden and what kind of fertilizers he used that year, the weather and his productivity. Occasionally he would pick us some beautiful flowers and wrap the stems up in a wet paper towel until we got home to put them in water. Grandpa even used the wood from his apple tree as a smoking agent in his grill. MMMmmm! He made the best chicken that he smoked in apple wood!! There are so many other wonderful memories I have of Grandpa.....I love you Grandpa!!





Okay, the other is Johnny Depp. As most of you know I Love Johnny Depp....and he won the People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive award yesterday. He is my all time favorite actor. I love his versatilty. He can be so funny and then so serious too. Just had to mention him!

Sherry! I don't think I knew you were a Johnny fan. I think he has the most beautiful face I have ever seen. He is so talented, too. I agree, he's so good at comedy, but be very dramatic also. Bravo for him taking top place on 'the list' again. He so deserves it! Twyla
