William "Billy" D. Mays, Jr.
July 20, 1958 - June 28, 2009



You can say what you want about Jacko, but the world lost a real icon today.....Billy Mays.

A day doesn't go by that Grandma J doesn't think about Billy Mays as she breaks out her Oxyclean or Orange Glo....and recently it's the Hercules Hooks that have been front and center as she decorates her new digs at the Spa.

And Really? Have you tried KABOOM?
Yes, Billy is an Icon with a uppercase I and he will be missed by anyone who drips food down the front of their shirts or clogs their toilets, has experienced the amazing products he invented.


RIP Billy Mays, Grandma J will miss you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On a happier note!




It's Baby Girl's Birthday!
That's right, once again, Grandma J's youngest child is celebrating a birthday. Baby Girl Lives in Colorado, and has a wonderful husband and two gorgeous guys....


.... who are getting ready for fun and action at Grandma J's come August. Can you say P.A.R.T.Y?

Happy Birthday Kelly, I love you!

I know I owe you all a movie review.....it's coming!

Happy Birthday to Kelly!

Also, I had no idea about Billy Mays. All of this is shocking and reinforces to me the importance of living life to the fullest and not putting off to tomorrow what you want to do today.

On that note, I'm off to the kitchen to eat a pizza.

Happy Birthday to Kelly!

I can not believe Billy Mays is gone! OMG! I'm with Chesapeake Bay Woman - this just shows that life is truly too short and you never know when your time is up.

Happy Birthday, Kelly! Nice picture of you and yours!

Who is going to 'hawk' all this stuff now? I just really learned his name.

Life is too short, and we need to be ready to go when the Lord calls us home.

That's a shame. I wonder if Vince of Sham Wow fame will pick up the Kaboom gig.

Happy Birthday to your daughter!!

Vince from Sham Wow, (while he brought Grandma J & me together) can not fill Billy May's shoes......if he tries, we will have to quit buying his stuff. I love As Seen on TV in the Walgreen aisle. (Mighty Putty aside)

Happy Birthday, Baby Girl! I know you are looking forward to your visit.

My first thought when I heard about the passing of Billy Mays? I wonder if Grandma J has heard!

I also thought of you when I heard about Billy Mays. Too bad he didn't know you were his #1 fan.
