Back in 57'

I was snooping through other people's photos on Flickr this morning and look what I found...look in the background on the left side of the picture.
The Last Resort back in 1957.

Our little cabin with no front porch, no hedge, no cabana and no Birch Street, just grass.

Here it is today...all fancy and full of memories.

Why I Love My New Boots Even More

My boots have brought me more joy by going on sale for 1/2 price, now I can go in with my receipt and get the difference back. With the difference maybe I can buy another pair? Or maybe a purse? Or the lesser fun than the prior I could use the money to pay bills.

Yes, you can call me a 'SHOE WHORE' I won't be offended.

Joy Has Started Arriving

Is it raining again? YES.

It was music to my ears and it brought a smile to my lips to hear & see birds...the birds that signify that spring is coming and then summer. YIPEE.

Along with the arrival of springtime birds, the first issue of my renewed subscription to InStyle arrived too. JOY.

Just one typed word sent me back....


Just like this photo our's had worn away well-loved noses too.

An email request to back my sister's quest to inform others of the cute monkey that sucked his or her thumb got me thinking...our dad built us a little car (we had to have one too cause Emi had one) to pull them around on. It was quite awesome. It had a little box on the back for a trunk and it even had pink scalloped fringe around the bottom for ground effects. Our car had one major fault though, it lacked a 4th wheel. Having only 1 wheel in the front was the reason for many accidents, accidents that sometimes were on purpose if our cousin Jed was driving.

Oh cousin Jed, how he tortured my little sister by grabbing her Monchichi by the head and swinging its body side to side. Monchichis lack strong necks so even with my sister yelling at Jed I sometimes laughed cause it did look funny.

As I type memories are still flooding in, must find out if our Monchihis are still living at my parents house.

Back @ it....

but for how long?

I'm back after what was supposed to be 2 weeks of holidays.

Business owners don't really have holidays remember?
Yes. It was apparent everyday as I drove to the daycare.

Well all is done...almost. I will post photos once all is complete.

P.S. I hope you like GREEN and thanks to my hard-working crew!
