New Stuff I bought

This week I had a sterling silver bracelet put on the watch face above. It is 10 years old, and was a gift on my 64th Birthday. I came with 3 stretch beaded bands. Blue, Red and Black/Silver. Over the years each of them broke at one time or another... I took it to Terra the Silversmith and had her make this one.  Below is my new bathing suit. Put Your Sunglasses ON now!  the shirring on the side allows for HIDING the PARTS of me that I don't like.  The color is good, because it will allow the lifeguard to find me if I sink to the bottom of the pool....😁

PRIOR POST  on the watches. I used them in 2017 for the time change post... two faces, 3 bands. I prefer the beads but they don't make them any more. NO I don't know how to make my own.

the photo said time for a change so I bought these shoes....

Not a Frog in the bucket

I said to Bob, what is that noise? He replied What Noise?  I followed my ears and there he was. FPL guy in a bucket cutting down the neighbors Bamboo.

We had watched with joy as the neighbor over a period of 2 weeks slowly removed the bamboo that ruins our pool by raining tiny leaves in it. Also when the wind blows, the bamboo shorts out the power lines. I said to Bob as we watched the neighbor, if he touches those 3 tall ones that are touching the power line, we need to be ready to call 911... 2 days after I said that FPL appeared and took it all down safely... YAY it is all gone now. so is the cute guy in the bucket that wondered what the heck the old lady was doing with her camera.

If you are bored with nothing else to do, click HERE for prior post on when I did call the power down number because the bamboo was flaming on those wires. that was back in 2016.

What is that?

Can you tell what my camera found through the vines on our fence?

The neighbors moved and left a chair... doesn't it look sad?

The Cardinals and The BIG Dog

For about 3 weeks we have watched Mama C and Papa C, building a nest, sitting on 2 eggs, sitting on 2 chicks. I could never get a clear shot at any of them. We spent a lot of time watching Big Boy watching the birds. The nest was 4 feet off the ground, just at head height for a stretching Dog.

For the story of how I got these photos and what happened with the BIG Dog click HERE and travel to Big Boy's Blog Fourpawsetc.

Way up high in the tree, Papa sat on a branch, the sun beam touched him, the branch moved, he was in the dark..... the branch blew in the breeze, light to dark, light to dark.. He was watching Big Boy, daring him to touch his babies. I put 4 of the photos of dark and light into this gif...

Back In The Bucket Nature Friday

You last heard about our Cuban Tree Frogs in PRIOR POSTS July through November of last year, I spent 4 months feeding Tadpoles to keep them alive.
Freddy must be around, but I have not seen him, but Mama has taken up residence in the watering bucket that hangs on the side of our rain barrel.  

 She has no idea, but I have started my own little tadpole abortion clinic. Each time she lays strings of eggs, I am watering the bushes with them. NO MORE tadpoles means no more Frogs. Enough already. That said. She is cute, don't ya think?

Happy House

This house is 4 houses over from our house. I think it is the color of JOY and love it sitting in the sunshine. Hubby hates the color yellow and doesn't like the house painted yellow. What think YE?
Would you paint your home yellow? Do you wear Yellow?

Yellow Color Psychology and Meaning. Yellow is the brightest color of the visible spectrum, and it is the most noticeable of all colors by the human eye. It means happiness and optimism; it is the color of sun shining, or bright light and creativity.   Blog closed on Thursday for TOPS meeting. I am 1.6 pounds from goal...

All I Got!

Can you tell I am board and Taking cell pics as I walk?

 You might say, I have been fencing lately. Fencing is the only sport that is not pointless.

Please don't take a fence to this post. It's all I got today!

The house below is across the street from us, it was one of three empty houses. Now it has 3 adults living there.

My Past with Chickens

Chicken from my archives.. Red Barn Flea Market
In 1970, My son David was 5, Daniel was 3. My Dad came by the house an Picked them up to go to the Feed Store with him, to shop for seeds and plants for his summer garden.

I gladly sadly said OK, they can go, but what will I do HOME ALONE?   It was a short hour and they returned home.
Daddy said Do you have a box?   
WHAT? for what?  My sons came in the door, each with a tiny yellow biddy in their hands.  
 DADDY! what were you THINKING? I screamed. 
His answer was Well They Wanted them...……. arrrhhhhhhhh
The biddies went in the box and grew and grew and grew, who new baby chicks could get so big so fast and turn into BIG CHICKENS?
What to do! We lived in the CITY? I did not WANT the chickens. I had an AHA! moment.

My aunt had a maid named Miss Katy, I had known her my whole life. She raised chickens to feed her family. She had Three Very Large Chicken Coops with lots of chickens. I asked her if we could donate our Chickens and of course she said yes.

I may have been guilty of a small white lie. I said to the Boys. These chickens need Friends, they need a big COOP to live in with OTHER chickens to play with. They are lonely in our back yard. And unless they are reading this post, they probably at age 52 and 54 still believe that story.
In Savannah GA, we called baby chicks, biddies. what do you call them? Hubby calls them peeps. My friends in KY called them diddles...

What Easter Means to Me repost 2011

The Last Supper, Jesus agonizes in the Garden, Judas Betrays Jesus and Peter denies knowing Him.
Jesus is tried, Mocked and dies hanging on the cross

this cross is in a sharp turn in the road and was put their by the homeowner as a warning. This cross made from reflectors and wood, is also reminder to us of the reason for Easter.

He Died for us, He Arose from the Dead and He will Return for us.

 1 Early on Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. 2 She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. She said, “They have taken the Lord’s body out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!”
 3 Peter and the other disciple started out for the tomb. 4 They were both running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. 5 He stooped and looked in and saw the linen wrappings lying there, but he didn’t go in. 6 Then Simon Peter arrived and went inside. He also noticed the linen wrappings lying there, 7 while the cloth that had covered Jesus’ head was folded up and lying apart from the other wrappings. 8 Then the disciple who had reached the tomb first also went in, and he saw and believed—9 for until then they still hadn’t understood the Scriptures that said Jesus must rise from the dead.

Fairy Tale

This Fairy is about 15 inches tall and stands in the corner on a table, under a light in my Primary Care Physician lobby. If things keep on keeping on, I might be able to do a whole Series of Photos from Doctor offices Via Cell Phone.

I found a Fairy Princess Name Generator, This Princess Celine of Pink Shire. Her best friend is a fairy named Titch and her worst enemy is that wicked witch who lives in the tower.  TO FIND YOUR Princess Name... go HERE...  Personally I liked Twinderella better...

They Came Back

April 13th 2019
In three PRIOR POSTS I told about the construction site our yard became for 3 days. They left, and this week they came back.
I heard LOUD noise, rushed to the living room and there sat the MACHINE... first it dug, then I backed up and turned around and used the front to push dirt around, then I backed up and then it turned around.... have you got this?   5 times they did this.

They left. Went to the next house and the next and the next. GONE! for 3 days. I hear Louder Noises. it is the cutest itty bitty front loader with Tank Tracks. clump clump clump, all day long. bring loads of Grass Sod and planting it in the big squares they made a week before. The thing is we are in a drought, all the grass in all the yards is half dead, the new sod will never make it, But they Put it there.

Came home today and our Road is Closed as in Barricaded and NO traffic. but they did let me drive in the driveway..... who knows what's next.  sorry I missed the adorable front loader.

The Sod carrier looked a lot like this photo I found on the internet, all black in color and just sooo cute. And the sound of those treads on the paved road. NOT CUTE.

Waiting on a Friend

I drove a friend to her doctors appointment and while waiting on her, just happened to snap a few shots with my phone.

The ceiling was 2 floors high, the offices did not go all the way to the ceiling. With the conversations I overheard from the people inside those offices, I am now wondering if the exam rooms had ceilings. This is a Women's Resource Building, as in GYN... hummm.
One conversation was with the IT guy/gal...

Something like this. I came in and booted up my compuer and NOTHING, just a screen, then it did strange things and POOF! all of it was gone. there was more but I can't remember. It was hilarious. I have been on the end of the person calling IT and trying to explain to the geeks what the computer is doing or not doing.  Just more free entertainment. I did not even have to read in my kindle.

The lime green chair was Bright Lime and the one that looks Red was bright Orange., I loved them.

I saw a Car

I saw a new Camaro driving on the street. This is my husbands favorite car right now. He wants one. I said to him "I would never ride in that, look at the windows, if it was in a crash, or went in the water, I could not get out those windows."

He said "open the doors" I said in a CRASH or under water They will NOT OPEN"

He suggested a convertible   HA! If that rolled over, guess who would be crushed or thrown out into traffic.  

Just so you know! If I die in one of these cars, it was murder and I was forced at gun point into it.

Back In The Day, I had a 68 Camaro!  IT had FAT windows.  I have one of those thingys you can break out windows in the side pocket of the door to the Kia.  (emergency escape tool is the name)

Also, If I jump off a HIGH bridge OR am found dead in a CAVE, Know that it was murder because I will not be found on either one.  OR in a living space that doesn't have at least TWO exits!

Gopher it! or not

If a gopher could clean a closet, which closet would he gopher....

My kitchen table has been covered with TOPS club books and bags. I spend a lot of time sitting there going through things to keep or toss. the sunshine on the fake flowers and my coffee cup make me happy.
That said, the 2 closets and a cabinet has not been cleaned out. I need a place to store this stuff. I can't seem to make myself take a day and Just Do It!

I never had this problem. I am a just do it person.. or used to be. I just don't WANT TO... here I sit, taking photos of my cup while the closets are stuffed tight.... even my cup says Gopher It!!!

One week ago, we received 11 Robo Calls, 5 in one hour. I went to our Cable Provider Web site and now NoMoRoBo calls.
Below is the email I received from Spectrum. WOOO HOOOO! and the Prescription reminders came through fine... it only stops the BAD ones


Thanks for signing up with Nomorobo on Spectrum (Formerly Time Warner).

We've stopped over 1 billion robocalls from reaching American consumers like you. We're doing our best to make sure that no one has to deal with this annoyance ever again.

Here are some things you should know:
When a robocaller calls, you'll hear a single ring and then it will stop. As a general rule, wait for your phone to ring at least two times before you answer it. If your phone rings once and then stops, you know Nomorobo just blocked a robocaller for you! Legal robocalls, like prescription reminders and school closing, are always allowed through. We don't block the automated calls that you want to get. In case a robocaller gets through Nomorobo's defense system, please report it in your control panel. This makes the system better for everyone.

If you have any other questions, comments or suggestions, we'd love to hear them! Just hit reply and we'll get back to you.

Enjoy the peace and quiet!

Guess What This Is

 Can you tell what this is?

Did you guess before you got here??? It's a Publix Shopping Bag, laying in the morning sun on the table. I used it for storing TOPS stuff.... I grabbed my phone when I noticed it, while headed for another cup of Java... I have been sick for 3 days with some kind of disease that is like a cold but not, like a sinus infection but not... I feel REALLY BAD... throat sore, headache.. might be slow commenting.
