I don't have a lot of people in my family that I ever got to know. But this one uncle that I did get to know. This was my Mother's brother. Meet Uncle Luke. My Mother never meet him until he showed up at her door one April mid morning many years ago. It was probably the middle 80's. He said Hi I am your brother. Mother slammed the door in his face, saying You call before you come!!! He went out and sat in his car not believing what had just happened. The next time he came (and she was lucky he did come back) he called and ask permission to come and see her. They turned out to be very good friends and he did a lot of things for her and me. My Mother died in 05 and Uncle Luke died in 06. I hope your day is going well. Thank you so much for coming for a visit. I need friends. Where I live doesn't make for many friends so I depend on you!!! Love coming your way, Bambi & Fern
I can not sleep so I thought I would blog. I have really nothing to talk about tho, so I 'll show you some pictures and say a little something about the pictures. That is Mary in this picture. She is a sweet coon. She has never shown a mean bone in her body.
We have a rose bush in the garden. I should say, several in one big pot.
My sweethearts just hanging out!!!
Happy is in the garden. When ever Tom or I go to the garden she has to come too. No matter what time it is or how many times we have been in the garden that day or night!!!
Well this post isn't too bad for not having anything to say.
This is the most beautiful quilt that I have ever seen!!! I know lots of you have seen this quilt before and if you follow my blog it will not be the last time you will ever see it. I was so fortunate to watch this quilt being made!!!! I loved the maker of the quilt. She was a good friend. She lost her husband to the rainbow bridge. She was so lost!! About a year after losing her hubby she started this quilt. It took all most a year to do. She didn't have anything else to think about. She worked day and night on it. It was shown in 3 quilt shows. All three it won best of show!!! The last show it was in was in Paduca Ky. in April 99. She died of cancer in November 99. I miss her!!!
Some of you ask me if my son the chef cooked for me when he came home??? No he doesn't.
Don use to cook for us when he was in school. When he was a boy he was interested in cooking and baking!! He use to cook dinner once in a while but he baked often!!! The first cooking job he got was baking all the desserts in the restaurant. He went on to work at other places but always came back to the one restaurant that he is now the head chef. The first restaurant he ever worked in.
This is the neat sign that I won from the Amazing Animal Lovers Blog Isn't it cute??
She also sent some toys for Happy to play with!!! This is Happy at the top (and I forgot to rotate her)
with just two of the little balls in the toy bag and there were a lots of little balls. Deborah thank you so much for the sign and the kitty toys!!! We are enjoying them very much!!!
Tom the gardener!!! He is up potting Stevia. That is a natural sweet plant. The leaves are sweet when you brake up the leaves and put them in tea or something you want a natural sweetener in. We are trying not to use sugar or salt in our diet. That little plant is helping us. Herbs are helping us to not need salt. We are really trying very hard to get real healthy b/c we have no health insurance, so we can't get sick!!!!
Yesterday we got a package from Deborah. Hopefully over the week-end I will get pictures. Thank-you so very much Deborah!!! For you who don't know I won it from the Amazing Animal lovers blog. This is day 12 or day 13 of this awful hot!!! I am getting so weary!! Tom is getting so weary and yet things could be much worse!!! Thank the Lord the AC is still working!!! There are people living with out air, bless their hearts!!!!!! It has been 97 to 103 everyday with no rain for so long:( I feel so sorry for Tom who has to work in this awful HEAT. He comes home so exhausted!!!!!! I wish I could be funny and cute but I don't feel that way!!!!! I am getting pretty tired too!!!
My G-daughter got a new puppy last week and I tried to load pictures to blogger and it wasn't happening.... So no pictures today.
Happy Wednesday friends !! It is so HOT !!!!!!!!!! Poor Tom having to work in this awful heat.
I use to have to work in it too!!! But this is the longest HOT spell I can ever remember!!!!! We have had only one tenth of rain in 9 days.. :( It has rained all around us but not on us. Nothing to cool us off!!!!!
It is another very hot day here in Florida. We are suppose to get afternoon showers today. Hopefully we will..
Bambi is loving her new diet!!! And I mean loving it!!!!!! I wish I had put her on it sooner!!!
Only four days and you can see a difference in her coat and skin color. She has lost a pound or two too!!! And she wants to eat often!! Her only treat now is bananas. No dogie treats at all anymore.... I am so happy with the way she has responded to this diet. I recommend it to all dog lovers!!! It is a lot of extra work b/c you are cooking for her a lot!!! But she is worth it!!!!!!
I hope you all have a wonderful week end. Have fun too. A week end should be not all work.
Good Morning.... Are morning walk is over and we had a nice big breakfast. Bambi loves to eat a big breakfast!! If I am up late and try to sleep late she will wake me up.... She says it is time to get up and have breakfast and take a walk!!! No sleeping in~~~~ lets goooo!!!!! That is the fun of having a dog that feels good!!!
Happy cat is really showing her age to us. When you look at her, in less she is walking, you can't see her age.... But to us she shows her body uncomfortableness.. She has a right to her pain, she is 17 or 19 years old. How old is that in cat years????
I am cooking everything that Bambi eats now a days. I am going forward as if I damaged her kidneys. She is on the kidney diet. As Sue from Maggie and Mitch says you do a lot of cooking for her!!! I would do anything for my animals!!!!
The pictures are from my files. They're not new. You probably have seen them before. Sorry, I haven't taken any new pictures in a while. Hope you have a good day!!!
Hi, how are you today?? It is so hot here!!! It feels like August !!! The picture above is of Bruce and his Dad and my first hubby. This was the first weekend for Bruce in his forever home. 6 weeks old.
This is a scenic quilt made by (a use to be) friend. She has moved two times since that quilt show and the second time she moved she didn't tell me she was going. She didn't tell any of her friends. She was running from an abusive husband. I hope she made it. I hope she got away from him!!! I know from experience how that is......
This is Mary and her family, Jake and Jacky. Jake is the one on the right. He has now been run off, because Mary doesn't want any inbreeding. Jacky is the one in the middle. She will have her first litter in about a month. She should be already pregnant Mary is now my oldest coon. She is 4 years old. My pretty boy has passed and his sister has passed. They made it to 8 years old. That is very old for a coon.
Happy Sunday!!! The pictures are of my second born son Don. The second picture was taken by my Mom and she could take a picture to save her neck. Especially of people!! That is why it is blurry. Don still lives in Daytona where he is a chief at a restaurant. He was married less than one year. He says never again........
Hi Friends !!! How do you like the Critter Quilt ???
I have a question today. What do you feed your dog ????? Where do you buy the dog food you give your dog??? Do you feed your dog table scraps ???
We buy Bambi Nutro and we buy it at a pet store. All my dogs have eaten dinner with us. I love to hand feed as I eat. I know that you are not suppose to but I love to share my food with my dog. I feel it is showing the dog deep love.
I have never been a raisin lover until recently. Only in the last few months have I eaten raisins every day. Well Bambi ask for some so I gave her some. Way to many as I Find out!!!!!!
I was on the Internet the other day looking at what you can not feed dogs. I found out that RAISINS will kill your dog!!!! OMG !!! I am killing my sweet girl!!!! Of course she has not had one since I read about that, but have I hurt her?? It causes kidney failure!!!!
Last Thursday they (TV) said we would have rain everyday through the holiday. Four days of rain. We had 1 tenth of an inch!!! The hole 4 days!!! I hope they are wrong about the hurricane season!!!!
In the award I got from Ninny's Notes one of the questions was if you were a tree what kind of tree would you be?? I would like to be a flowering tree, but that is just what I would like to be!!! I know me and that is not what I WOULD BE!!! I would be an OAK tree!! That is what I would be. That is my personality!!!
