Turns out I’m kind of judgy. I think anything but a suit at a funeral is wrong. I may be wrong though because the dead person obviously doesn’t care. Other than that, jeans go everywhere. Well, maybe a trip to the Oscars need a tux.😁
I’m glad you three got good news! Pets are such a joy, so when something goes wrong, it can break your heart. Poppy cat just jumped off my lap and this reminds me to be happy every time she jumps on my chest for bed time.
I love your work Jim! And with any luck, you may be able to help me. I followed a tutorial to make that birch tree painting with the path of light. Now I can’t remember the artist and can’t find the tutorial again. Do you know? Yours is a lovely painting. Much nicer than the mud I made😁!
I spent four months in Europe and never got to Pisa I’m afraid. I also didn’t go up the Eiffel Tower. Hindsight is a poor substitute. OTOH, I missed a ferry in Ireland and had to sleep on a parked train sitting by the ferry terminal on the Irish Sea. The coldest night I have ever spent anywhere in my life. Your story of the tower is inspiring.
This reminded me of the first time my husband met my parents. It was Thanksgiving. Dinner was at one o’clock. At my house when you’re told the time a meal will be served, you can bet your bottom dollar that everyone will be sitting at the table at that time, passing the gravy. Hubs lives by a different clock. He was 1/2 hour late. When he walked…[Read more]
He sure is cute. I got into weaving a number of years ago, and one fun thing some friends and I did was go to a llama farm and learn how to shear them. I also went to an alpaca farm and fell in love with the little guys. Since hubs objects to my having chickens, you can guess what he thought about an alpaca ranch. Lol He’s no fun when it comes…[Read more]
There is a certain Christopher Robin thing going on here. I like it. I was a major day dreamer, fantasizer when I was young. I still do to some degree, but not as much as I used to. I used to do it a lot when I went to bed, kind of like a personal bedtime story. Now that I’m older, I’m too tired and fall asleep before I can get a story started. 😁
When we lived in Chicagoland, hubs and I went to this diner called Dell Rhea’s Chicken Basket that was famous for being at the beginning of Route 66. They had a lot of delish fried foids, and the chicken was out of this world. Good thing we only went a couple of times a year.
Some cow! To paraphrase Charlotte😁. The farmer whose pasture abutted my back yard passed away a few years ago, so alas, no more cows or horses visiting me over the fence. I miss those guys. They always shut up and just listened.
Nothing was more fun when I was a kid than dad saying, “Who wants to go for a ride?” We all did, and we saw some amazing stuff and had some amazing ice cream cones. Once we were stopped beside a road watching the pea picking machines harvesting a field. When the pickers were close, dad got out, talked to one of the drivers, and came back to the…[Read more]
I loved Sugar Smacks! And Honey Combs. Turns out, they aren’t as good now as they were when I was a kid. Hubs bought me some a while back after some begging on my part. They lost there allure very quickly. Kind of like Twinkies.😉
I grew up in Door County, Wisconsin and there are loads of lighthouses there. One big one was a couple of miles from my house so I have the sound of the foghorn built right in my soul. Now that I am fairly housebound, it is wonderful to have that and all of my travel memories to reflect on.
If you have never seen a Scamp camper, check it out. https://www.scamptrailers.com !! Adorable!! My grandparents used to visit us with their trailer which they would park in the yard and stay for a week or two. It was great fun to sit around the little table playing cards and listening to back when stories. And no one had to give up a bed, or…[Read more]
Such a fun guy that pelican! Baldy as I like to call him. We have the big white pelicans here in the great lakes. I’m pretty sure that wasn’t true when I was a kid, but they have started living here now. At least in the warmer months, because pelicans are not fools. They are snow birds I guess. Just like the retired grandparents who head south at…[Read more]
