Sunday is for family- Grandpa & Grandma

Hi blog friends. It is beautiful here today!! Sun is out and it is 64 degrees and in the sun and out of the breeze it feels really nice!!
The picture above is my G-pa. My G-pa took care of me when I was little!!! He taught me many things. When we would go for a walk, it was a teaching lesson. When we would go for a ride in his car, it was a teaching lesson. He taught me to tie my shoes.
The picture below is G-pa & G-ma living in our big trailer. When we bought a house we gave G-pa our trailer. The dog in the picture is Penny. The dog I had after losing King.
I loved my Grandpa so much !!! He taught me to drive when I was 8 years old. He was always teaching.
I hope you have had a good week-end.
Love you all lots, Bambi, Happy & Fern

Trip to Paducah and Bambi in her chair

Hi blog friends, today is cold but nice and sunny. The wind is blowing and it makes it feel colder than it really is. But the sun is out and that is GOOD!!!!
The picture above is the sweetest dog you could ever meet. Bambi, she is a wonderful dog. She understands very thing we say. If there is something that you do not want her to do, tell her. In a week or so you will have to tell her again but that second time will be the last time you have to tell her. She has got it!!!!! The cat food is left on the floor now and Bambi will not touch it!!!!
That is a GOOD dog!!!

The picture above is the bus and all the people that went to the big quilt show in Paducah, Ky.
Can you find me in the picture?? We left Tally got to Paducah that night. We were gone 5 days.
It was exciting and very hard at the same time.
I guess I should show some of the quilts that I have shown before because of the new friends that are following now.
Have a good day. Maybe I will be back tomorrow.
Love all my blog friends so much. Thanks for coming.

Grandpa and King and me / friends at a quilt show

Good morning blog friends. Here in Tally town it is partly cloudy and not very cold. We are suppose to have rain tomorrow and than cold again. Winter is not done yet!!!
The picture above is my Grandpa and King. I had planned to put this picture on Sunday with my picture and King. I only found G-pa's pic this am.
I loved my G-pa so very much!!! In this pic he had just had his second heart attack. He only lived a few years more when a third took him. Everybody in my family has had heart related problems. In most cases that is what took them. So we (Tom and I) are trying very hard to eat right and exercise.
The picture below is friends and I at a quilt show in Ga. Those friends have left me. All the quilt friends have gone with the wind. I can't go and do like I use to. So By By. No one even calls anymore. But that's alright. I have my blog friends now.

I have had a set back. Last week I was out getting food out for the critters when I stepped out of the shed where I keep the food and slipped off the step and tweaked my back. I did not fall, just slipped. I have not been feeling real great ever since. It will probably take 2 or 3 weeks to get back to normal.
You have a good week!!
Love you all lots, Bambi, Happy & Fern

My Doberman and me a long time ago

Happy Sunday blog friends.
Here is a picture of me and King!!! He was beautiful!!!! My parents had me show King in the dog shows!!! I got a very strong dislike for competing at that time in my life. I didn't like what went on at the shows. One show King won best in working class. That was the last show I participated in.
Happy Sunday!!! We have a beautiful day here in Fla. Sun is out and it is not cold. Probably 62 degrees.

A cold Winter

Hey blog buddies!!! This is going down as the coldest winter on record so far. I'll bet it is the same for those of you who live on the east coast. We are almost to the end of February so I hope that will be the end of this cold. We are so ready to start to grow things!!!!!
Above is my sweet and very smart rescue dog Bambi. The picture was taken late last Oct. 09.
We were out for one of our walks on our 3 acres.
Below is Dottie. She is 2 years old in that picture. That was taken last summer. She usually comes with her four kids but, not that day. Last night she came to eat and she had a wounded leg. I hope she will be OK. She is not one of my coons that will let me touch her.
I hope you have a good day! I hope you are well. I am not feeling real well today.
Love you all lots, Bambi & Fern

I picked it because after this bad weather we having and I knew if I left it there it would be no more after today. I also was trying to load a picture of Happy playing with Bambi's Xmas monkey.

Happy sleeps with it and plays with it and just loves her monkey. Happy wants to thank you Jazzi and Mom for her Xmas monkey!!

Rescue Girl Amanda & a Coon family

Good Morning !!! It is Cold in Florida !!! We are going to have a little frozen precipitation tomorrow evening, THEY say!!!! Then a week of below freezing temperatures. This is a record cold winter for us, as it is for so many others!!!! Thank God for a warm house that is paid for!!
The pictures are of our sweet lady Amanda that was rescued from the Greyhound Rescue place in Ga. She was a wonderful friend that we loved so much, but she was sick from the start. The last 6 years of her life were good. We did everything we could to make her life comfortable and happy. She was much loved!!!
Mary and her family. Mary is on the left, than Jackie, and then Jake on the right. I know I am not suppose to love wild animals but I do!!! They don't know they are wild. When I go out to feed them they dance like dogs would when they are happy. They are very sweet animals really.
They would never hurt you unless they were sick. I have been there friend for over 20 twenty
years and I have never seen a sick coon except once. We took her to the vets and she had distemper. She was not mean, just sick with distemper.
Have as good a day as you can!
Love you all lots, Bambi & Fern

Good morning friends. Another rain filled day!!!! We are suppose to have rain all day!!!! I feel so sorry for the animals!!! So many days this fall and winter are stay in days!!! Happy in the first picture is an indoor and outdoor cat. She love to be in and she loves to be out. I wish I knew how old she was. She is getting very arthritic!!!!! She can't jump up on the bed or on her food table any more. Tom has put a small table next to the bed so she can jump on that and then on the bed. She uses it all the time. We have had to put her food down on the floor and tell Bambi she can't have it. That has been fun!!!! But Bambi has now gotten the message. She leaves it alone even at night. Bambi is such a good girl!!!!!
This is the most currant picture of Tom and I you have ever seen. I can't tell you with any assurance what year that was taken, but not that long ago. We wear the same things at Christmas every year so it was taken 2 to 4 years ago. I think it was 3 years ago. The reason I am showing you the picture is to show you my hands. You can see the arthritis in my hands!!!!
My hands are really in bad shape!!!
I can still type thank God. I can still talk to my friends. You are so very important to my well being!!!!! Thank you for all your comments!!!!!!!!!
Love you lots, Bambi, Happy and Fern

Baltimore Album Quilt and Bambi -were she is when it is raining

Hi friends, another raining day!!!
The quilt above is a beautiful quilt and I didn't take a very good picture of it. Sorry! I still wanted to show it to you. I have never done any Baltimore album work because it is hand work and my hands are a mess with arthritis. My hands have been full of arthritis since I have been relatively a young woman.I know why, but not going to tell you today. It is a long story.
Anyway it is beautiful!!

Bambi is spending another day like this-- waiting for the rain to stop!!!!!!

I know that a lot of my friends are going to or already have snow. Stay warm and dry. Have a good warm week-end!! This kind of weather is good for loving!!!! Happy times!!!!
love you all lots, Bambi, Happy & Fern

My home made clothes and a Camellia

Good morning friends.
They say it is suppose to get warm today and rain again tonight and tomorrow. It is not warm yet!!! THEY are not always right. We have had a lot of rain(and we need it) in the last 4 months.
Above is me in my homemade cloths. Everything you can see is homemade. Tom and I were getting ready to go out to eat with my oldest son and his wife. Now I told you all that we don't go out to eat hardly ever, that is true. But when they come to see us we usually go out because my daughter-in law is allergic to my animals. So we can't spend any real time in my house. So we go out. That is the only time we go out to eat, when they come. The picture was taken about
7 or maybe 8 years ago.
The picture below was taken Tuesday. Another one of my beautiful Camellias!!! We are so lucky to live where they are so happy!!! The Camellia is not a small flower. The bush can get to be 20 feet tall and the flower is 5 to 8 inches across. They are impressive!!
I hope to see you tomorrow but if I don;t I will for sure Friday. Hope you have a good day. Till then, Bambi, Happy and Fern

My Family

Good Morning blog friends. We have a cool rainy morning here. Bambi has been out just to do her thing and then right back in. She does not like to get wet. Happy has not been out yet today. Tom is gone to work. Me, here I am with you, blogging.
We try to be a very healthy family here in Reedville. We exercise everyday! We buy the best food for our inside animals. And we buy the best food for the people too. Organic food for us. We eat very little sweets. We really try to be healthy. We use to drink beer, but we quit that in 84. We don't smoke. Tom never has. I did for a short time only. We are gardeners and grow a lot of our own food. We really try to be healthy.

The pic above is our rescue dog Bambi.
Here is Tom filing Amanda's nails. Tom does that every week to what ever rescue dog we have at the time. Because we only have rescued dogs. We try to do it right!!!! I think, from what I have learned from my blogger friends that most animal people do!!!!
I hope you have a good day.
Love you all lots, Bambi, Happy & Fern
