Just the other day I was putzing around in the driveway, waiting for my ride.
I was noting the really cool texture on one of the trees that faces our driveway.
I quickly snapped a photo, and walked away.
Looking at it later, I saw him – the one I’ll call the Grumpy Guardian.
He’s been guarding our driveway all this time without our knowledge.
A little over 30 years!
He really made my day!
Perhaps he needs a Christmas hat?
Hope he made you smile!
Until next time.
What do you get when you take the two youngest grand children, G-ma, G-pa, the dog, and put them together with the older cousins and their granddaughter, and add to them to a GMC Denali, for a weekend?
Fun – That’s what you get!
Memories – That’s the coolest thing you get!
I hope you enjoyed your pocket trip “Down home.”
See you next time.
I hope you enjoyed your armchair trip of Union Station in St. Louis, and that you will join me again next time.
Recently, my Original Grandson, told me about a new app.
This app helps you to take a quick little video, every day.
At the end of 30 days, this app turns your little videos into one long one.
IF, you read all of the instructions.
I would have saved MUCH time if I had read them first.
But after all my fussing, here is the result.
I could think of no better week to have this tool than this one.
Have a look at that tree!
After some practice, it will be better.
See you next time.
Oh, and here’s a link for 1 Second Everyday – https://1se.co/
I had a neat idea for today’s post,
but after finally getting up and getting around,
My plans were changed.
So here is the story, and the result of that change.
For the first 20 years of living here, we heated our home with wood.
It was so efficient, you could say we overheated it.
Over the past ten years or so, the labor has become to intensive for us to handle keeping it going.
So this year, it will go to our nephew in Missouri when we visit for a family gathering.
Of course it had to be uninstalled, which means that someone has to go up on the roof, and disengage the stove pipe, and squirrel cage, and the venting.
My husband has some usual suspects that he calls for these things.
Some were in the field.
Some were out of town.
Some were simply unavailable.
When I hear the call, “Help Mate?” I know that something I don’t want to do will surely follow.
Something loud. Something heavy. Something hard.
On this occasion – Something was UP!
Let me state very clearly – I do not do UP.
Knowing that I would likely never have this opportunity again;
Here are the photos I took from a place called – UP.
Again, I don’t do UP, so the photos are not real high quality,
but they are real.
It truthfully wasn’t so bad after the initial shock of it.
But my feet are on the ground now.
And hopefully, they will stay there.
Until next time …
Thanks for stopping by.
Real words will come soon.
But until then – enjoy some music and photos.
