Ms. Speedy:





Please let me know if you do this challenge. It was fun to do - even if the picture brought some bitter-sweet memories back to my mind.

Hope y'all have a good day....

American Made

Yesterday I went & visited my 90 yr. young cousin. She is such a joy to talk with & a wealth of info.
Anyways... many yrs( & I do mean many!!!) ago her & her hubby as a hobby started tanning deer hides & it turned into a business. Well, her hubby is passed on now(quite a few yrs. back) & she kept the business going. Now she has turned it over to her step grandson & family, but she still goes there just about every day for a few hours to work.

So anyways.... she knows my love for hats....yep.... the hat came home with me.
I think I gave her a bit of a fright as I told her I was going to wear it to church today. - but she made me promise that I wouldn't. I kept my promise... but oh my it was hard. hehehe

Then, bless her heart- she gave me a pr. of genuine lambskin slippers. Man-oh-man are they ever soft & keep my feet nice & toasty warm (without socks)
so... everytime I wear either one I will have fond memories of her.
BTW: the hat is genuine deerskin

Snow & Ice Storm 1/28/09

The pictures here were taken down at my in-laws in Coshocton county, the day after the storm ripped thru Ohio.
We were without power for about 5 hours & were lucky as some people in that area went without for over 4 days.
The driveway is circular & 2 teen boys came that eve & dug us out. They did such a fantastic job. Everytime I look at these pictures I thank God for them & their great work.

Its kind of hard to " think spring" when you see all this ice & snow, but someone told me today that its only 47 days away. YAAAAY!!!!!
until next time....
Think SPRING...
