Football Throwbacks ❀️🏈

Throwing it back today

STIN – senior year

Such a great football season! Knights kicked 🏈🏈🏈🏈🏈 ass that year!! Just like Michigan State is going to this Saturday!

Seems like just yesterday, Stin woke up to a goodie bag of treats And his Jeep decorated to pump him up for the game.

Always a huge fan of football season 🏈❀️

Stins #1 fan that year ( probably because the other munchkins were not born yet🀣) he even had a knights outfit

Then Carters football 🏈 memories showed up

Carter’s senior night❀️🏈

Duh, Lover was there alsoπŸ‘‡πŸΌ

Breast cancer pink out ,even the boys were in spirit support πŸ’•

Always spirit wear floating around the house, you can never have too many KNIGHTS jerseys πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

After looking at all these pictures, I think I need to go to a game. It’s funny because, we said that we will still go to the games, been going for the last 20 years. I cheered at WLC, all 4 kids of mine ( ashley cheered) and the boys played football. After Carter graduated we haven’t been back since. Very sad. Life changes, different directions. So busy! I sometimes wonder how I made it all happen back then.

At that time our whole life revolved around football season LOL

Now our whole life revolves around the four grandkids, and wouldn’t change that for anything πŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸ‘¦πŸΌπŸ‘¦πŸ»πŸ‘¦πŸΌβ€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ

Longtime Detroit radio host Mike Clark has died at 63

His longtime co-host and friend Drew Lane confirmed his death to The Detroit News on Tuesday, saying Clark, 63, died in his sleep Monday night.

“He had some medical issues the past couple years, but I’m still very surprised because we were texting yesterday and he was in typically good humor,”Β Lane said.

Clark and Lane’s “Drew and Mike” show on Detroit rock station WRIF (101.1-FM) was the top talk-radio program in the market for many years. When it ended five years ago, the jokes and observations about pop culture, sports and music soon returned in the form of an independent podcast hosted by Lane and sometimes featured Clark.

“I can’t believe I’m not goingΒ to hear his laugh anymore,”Β Lane said. “He had an incredible, incredible laugh. And he was very self-deprecating. The biggest laugh was always when he shared something from his own life like when he drove out of his garage with the garage door down.”

Lane said just that just one instance has brought him “a decade of laughs” and it’s silly things like that that he will miss the most about Clark.

Lane said Clark, who loved to fly airplanes,Β was married to wife Trish for more than 40 years and he added, “I don’t think they were apart for more than a couple days. He loved her dearly.”

The “Drew andΒ Mike” show left WRIF in 2013 after more than 20 years on the air. After the show ended, Lane said ClarkΒ still enjoyed being in touch with fans on social media.

“I don’t think he ever got over the popularity of the show;Β he just enjoyed it so much.”

Mojo and the morning show interviewed Drew this morning on the radio, such a sad passing 😒. Such nice things to hear about Mike and his love for his wife of 40 years! 22 years Mike and Drew worked together, such a funny, crazy pair.


Today consist of

Work, Dentist, gym that is all

Goodnight to all, until tomorrow, xoxo 😘

Honor of Buttercup πŸΆβ€οΈ

My memory was filled with such sad pictures. Today was my beloved Buttercups birthday! Best dog ever! Smartest dog around. She could actually climb trees.

A dog is definitely Familyβ€οΈβ€οΈπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

I still remember going to ” look” at a puppy, not really thinking we would come home with her. Stin, Carter and I set out to go see her and adopted her on the spot! Ashley and I enjoyed dressing her up, which we think she hated, They even called her the worlds fastest dog, because of her lightening speed. And she could seriously jump soooo high❀️she jumped off the diving board all summer long!

Freshly groomed❀️, she was so skinny stins BFF❀️

We missed Ashley ( my only girl so much when she left for college) that we got our girl dog Butts ( AKA Buttercup)

Another specialty she had was fetching a ball, she could play for hours. The grandkids couldn’t even wear her out. She was the boss!!

RIP Butts!!! You will always be our number one dog!!! Princess Butts forever ❀️❀️❀️❀️

Unless you’re a dog owner you won’t understand but we miss you terrible Butters!

Goodnight πŸŒ™πŸ˜΄ to all, until tomorrow, xoxo 😘

Beautiful Fall DayπŸ‚πŸπŸ‚πŸπŸ‚

Beautiful fall day!

Extremely early GYM day, wanted to get home before anyone crawled out of beds, the Blondes and Dino were still snoring away. when I left, I noticed Ashley’s car was missing, figured she was already at the gym, didn’t seem to see her there , but didn’t check the side rooms. Got home and asked her if she was working out, she replied yep, seen you there, didn’t feel like chatting, figured we’d be chatting all day today anyways πŸ˜‚ I guess she was correct on that statement, love hanging out with her ❀️
