A sidewalk led to other memorials to other wars, WWI, WWII and Korean, etc.
This next picture is for Julie…. (Our “Jewels” who is on our transcription team.)
Julie has a sweet black lab, Hauxs, who loves to ride in her little golf cart over their property, down to the mailbox to retrieve the paper, etc…. My mom and dad scored a golf cart recently that was on sale beside the road somewhere… It’s convenient to hop in it and run to the ranch next door, etc, so Mom gave me a ride yesterday. I tried to talk Jinx and Julie (my parents’ furbabies) into going with us, but they were having nothing to do with it.
This might be because of my mother’s reputation for fairly speedy driving in a former life. I was, however, able to talk Spot into going.
Spot is an antique
We’ve been running into town from time to time, to pick up internet signal, and to grab a bite to eat at some really great local restaurants. This morning we went to one of my favorite breakfast spots, Our Place, and I had a western omlet and their fantastic coffee! Fantastic flavor, and fantastic price!
I was at Walmart this morning almost before the sun was up…. We rise with the roosters around here and I must have been sleepy and not paying attention, because I “slipped” in Walmart. Worry not…. it was the kind of slip where you “fall”……
And when you get up…
You find yourself holding a pile of fabric…. neatly cut and ready to add to your stash back home!
We went up to feed the chickens a little bit ago….
I enjoy chickens! I think they’re cute, for starters, and who can argue with the value of an animal that gives you (eggs) something worth more than it costs you to feed it?
While I was there, I found the answer to the question “Where’s the beef?”
I can vouch for the fact that some of it is at the Double Doc Ranch, because I got to talk to it!
We checked in with a few of the horses while we were there.… they look forward to the occasional treat and pat!
Once I got home, I put in a little time at the sewing machine. I have the Brick Road all laid out in order around the sewing table (look at Mom’s machine - she’s had it as long as I can remember, and I love it!).
I started sewing them in order and laying them out on the floor in the sunroom.
See what is happening with the colors?? It was completely unintentional that they would line up in diagonal rows of similar colors, but I’m loving it!
I will try to blog again tomorrow!
