A Hodge Podge of Things

 
I have been having some dryer issues so
my youngest brother Mark came over
to see what he could do to fix the issues.
 
When he walked in the door he handed me
this!
 
 
A cast iron dog.
He had gotten this at Hobby Lobby and
decided to paint it.
After painting it his wife Kim told him
it looked like a hotdog.
Mark then added the yellow paint....
MUSTARD.
 
I love it.
 
This next pic was not taken by me.
But this is my brother Mark in Fla.
holding his catch of the day!
Pretty big.

 
Flipping through my pics to decide
what this blog would be about and
I saw this. I took it several
months ago on the desk of
my co worker.
No, no, no.....it was not
like that when I saw it.
But this is what can happen
when you leave your office
for just a few minutes.
 
 
Yikes.....the end of August and the leaves
are starting to turn in the Nashville Tn
area.
Took this over the weekend.
Heard this morning where we have gotten
as high as 97 this yr...that is
a far cry from the 100 plus we usually
have. I have loved it.

 
My kitchen table. Given to me
by my oldest brother Ray and his
wife Lori.
I was not sure what I wanted to do with it
but I started to strip the top when I
finally realized that I might just
hit it with a sander and seal it.
 
 
I have these projects in my head that
just will not go away. Problem is
I know that I can't take them on
like I use to.
 
This is my kitchen.
Over look the clutter.
But I am thinking of redoing my cabinets.
Please stop me now!! lol

 
I saw this look in a cream and gray. Wow...it
looked great. You know how fresh paint
looks.
 
But...there again, I think I am talking myself
out of.
If I do paint them again,
I might go with the cocoa brown on
bottom and cream on top...removing
the ivy.
 
That is a hard choice because my son that
is in Calif. now helped me to paint
the ivy on there. I taught him to stencil
when he was about 9 or 10 and he did a lot
of this. He is 26 now.

 
But I will keep that project in my head till
I decide if I can take it on.....or at least
till I finish some others that are started.
 
Sitting a stop sign in the neighborhood the
other day and this guy rides by...
When I caught up to him he was in one lane and
me at the other....stopped at a red light of course.
 
I talked to him about his dog and he
said that the dog loved to ride.
I thought yep....you rev that thing
up anywhere near my dog and he
is
GONE!
Scared of everything.

 
Found this on facebook and I loved it.
So true..
Growing up in the 70's was a great time.
Wishing my kids and my grandkids could
have enjoyed the carefree days.

 
Saw this of FB this morning...
lol....had to laugh, I threw some
of those hangers away just the other day.
Whoops...
Who knew?

 
Also saw this one this morning....lol.
I have a special person in mind for this one.
And I have often said this about that person
many times.

 
I have started working on these again.
Winter scarves.
 
I like to keep them made up for
a fast gift.

 
Cobi Montgomery-
nephew-
move in day at college...
first yr.
 
have fun, study hard...

 
My mom's neighbors....


 
So funny to come to her house and pull in
the drive to hear crowing and chicken noises.

 
Never would have heard this in the hood while
growing up...
but the law was past that you can have
chickens in the neighborhood now.
 
Not ROOSTERS.



 
Mom says crowing at 4 or 5 am is a pain.
 
Thank you for stopping in,
Please come again,
Pam

Jamie had a rooster in her neighborhood that kept waking her up... and even scratched her new car. Some neighbors ended up catching it and re-homing it.

great pics... you must have some fun co-workers.

kitchen? I have committed to doing a cabinet re-do... wondering what I was thinking.... Too much on my plate right now.

hope you have a great holiday weekend Pam!
