Wednesday Window

John was out working in the yard on Monday and came across this lovely dragonfly.  It is amazing how the center colors look like a butterfly.  There is even a second set of "eyes" half way down the back.  Two for the price of one!

Wednesday Window

Just a few casings from when Clint and I went out shooting last week.  Clint built the cool sculpture - thought that it should be about 30 feet high!

Dear Grandmom

This past week I helped my Mom by going through some old boxes of stuff.  I came across this letter and thought that I would share it with you.  It was a letter that I wrote to my Grandmom - "Gran" as I called her.

Dear Grandmom   2/23/76

Hi how are you doing? This is a lettle asking you some queshtons.  A lot of them. I sher do love you you no that?  Can you fish and get a lot of them? I can! 

I was sick on Fed. 23, 1976 it was not fun this is the day I rote this letter to you.   

I Love you I Love you I Love you I Love you I no I said that four times I jost Love you.

Here is a story a made up.  A mouse was making a mud pie in the annual slowpoke race when he was picked up by an elephant in a yellow canoe who gave him a lift to a haunted house where a goat was chewing bubble gum.

Love casey

Ok, it was the 70's....  I went by the name "Casey" (one of my many aliases).   I was seven years old at the time.  Now what do you do when you come across something like this?  It wouldn't mean a thing to anyone, but me.  But, I just can't seem to throw it away just yet.  Maybe I will save it and let my kids decide when they have to help me clean out all of my clutter that I have been collecting over the years.   Good idea!

I have to use bribery on my son quite often, if I ever want to get a picture of him.  He has never wanted his picture taken and I have thousands of pictures where all you see is his hands in front of his face. 

Well, he has been begging us to take him to Ginza Japanese restaurant.  So, on Sunday we told him that we would go.  Just before getting into the car I told him that I wanted a picture of him or else we weren't going.  A mother has to seize every opportunity she can!

Wednesday Window (a little late)

I love my house so much, it will be hard to picture us living somewhere else.  But, I am starting to dream about what my new house will look like.  I heard back from one of the contractors today, and it didn't sound good.  I was really hoping for some lower figures.  Maybe one of the others will be able to do it in our price range.

But in the mean time I can dream.  This is what I would like my kitchen and bath to look like....

nothing too fancy, but clean lines and natural wood.  I want to make ceramic tiles for the backsplashes. 

Photo Shoot at the Railroad

One of John's and my great friends, Scott, took us out to the old railroad station so we could shoot some photos.  As you probably know,...
