More on Benny and Mandy's Weekend

Visit my Facebook Link to see the first of Benny and Mandy's Weekend.  They came to Visit Amanda for her Birthday and decided to stay the night.  So they toured around the farm before taking off for home this afternoon.  The kids and I had alot of fun, going around and taking pictures today of the 2 of them. My little guy got mad once today and Benny started telling him all about his motorcycle adventures and boom!  he was all done screaming and I was watching him laugh.  You see our little man that we adopted is 6 years old, was diagnosed with FAS(Fetal Alcohol Syndrome).  So he can be a challenge some days, but since I have started my people, they seem to hit a cord with him and his sisters, but mostly him.  I will tell him they are smiling at him, want to give him a kiss or a rock hug.  He just can't keep from laughing.  He loves to have me make up a story about them and he listens.  He also fills in some of my blanks for me.  So I hope you enjoy my stories and if you know of anyone that might need a pick me up, have them come read my blog and see for yourself.  One thing you will always find here is everyone is SMILING!

WOW!  They got to climb up a Windmill, Mandy said the view was beautiful

Miss Diva Mandy RockWell

I am never able to get 2 done in one week, with the little guys in school I can can work in the mornings now. 
Benny wanted all of you to see and meet his new gal, Mandy Rockwell.  She is the new owner of the "Diamond in the Rough" Beauty Salon in "Stone Valley MN".     Mandy comes from "RockHead  IA". 
Benny was her first customer since opening the doors.  She is quite the Diva.  Benny is quite smitten by her, and she just thinks he is the coolest "Rock Head" around.     Her parents are quite well known in "RockHead  IA".  Her Dad is the Dr. in town and her Mother owns the only Clothing Boutique there. 
Mandy Rockwell
 Aunt Harriet is the one that thought Mandy should move up to MN but she had Fred in mind to be her guy.   Mandy just can't quit smiling when Benny is around.    Mandy is a very colorful gal and is way to high maintence for good old Fred.   So I do believe her and "Tough Guy Benny" are a good match.  She just started giggling when Benny said, "you want to go on an Adventure with me."  You can just imagine the rest of his smooth talking and STORIES.  
Benny and Mandy
So as the story goes, Mandy loves her new job as the owner of the "Diamond in the Rough" Beauty Salon and as a bonus she got a new man too.  
 Mandy will be looking for help in the Salon, you just never know who will pop up next...................................  Take care Everyone until next time.

"Benny" My newest Rock Head

It has been awhile for me, since my last blog.  Let me tell you my Rock Friends and Insulator Buddies are letting me know that.  I have been busy getting the little ones ready for school and helping my Mom with her house.   My time has really been spread thin.  But all these life andventures have given more ideas for my guys.  I hope to be able to do more needle Felting now,  I finally have my mornings to myself again. YAH!  YAH!

Here he is my newest Needle Felted "Rock Head" 
Benny "Tough Guy"

Benny likes to think of himself as an adventurer, he loves his Motorcycle and could just ride and ride.    He came to "Stone Valley MN" to visit his friends and good old Fred the Fisherman.  Well, Aunt Hildie seen him and her eyes just popped.  Benny stopped in at "On the Lake Bait and Tackle Shop", to get a cold drink and he had his swagger going on. 
 Well, we all know how lonely Aunt Hildie has been since Uncle Chet left.   Fred thought it would be great if Benny would help Hildie out for awhile at the bait shop. 
 He did need a job, before he he could even start out on his new Adventure or  even make it back to "RockHead IA" where he is from.   (Fred knew this, Aunt Harriet had called).
This young man Benny could really be a big help with Fall coming with all the cleaning and getting ready for the winter. 
Aunt Hildie loved the idea!! 
Oh my Benny started right in on his stories and we all thought Fred had stories. 
All of sudden Benny sees Mandy Rockwell.  She is new to town, came from "RockHead IA" .  She is the owner of the "Diamond in the Rough"  Beauty Salon in town.
Oh my he walked on over to her Salon, he started with his smooth talking.................., next thing we all knew she was giving him his new do!!!!!

Side view of Benny
You will be meeting Mandy Rockwell real soon.  She is a insulator buddy.  But I do believe we will be hearing alot more from her and Benny in the near future.  Poor Aunt Hildie ever time she gets smitten on a man, they just seem to not notice her.  So  I wonder where her mystery man is ???????????
Please let me know what you all think of Benny and my stories.  I would love feedback.  Thanks and everyone take Care until next time...........
