The cross blocks are so fun to create!

I keep it out on the pool table and make some almost every day!

This was such a fun read! There are about 19 in the series( I don't know why not an even 20?)  I'm working on getting them all! Or at least reading them all!  Oh! I just found out there are 40 or more! Oh My!

Husband Maurice celebrated his 79th Birthday on June 12th. Here he is telling son Paul a funny story. One of his favorite things to do!

Spent several days up at the Cottage Garden Weeding-----

And getting rid of Poison Ivy!!

I decided to pick some of my herbs and put them on the kitchen table right on my place mat . So I hopefully remember to put some in my salads!

We have the house all patriotic! Inside and out!

Maurice finished staining the house.It looks so nice! The Day lilies  are really blooming well on the south side of the house too!

I shared this old picture on Fathers Day of my parents and me while visiting relatives in the country. Probably about 1940.

They were wonderful parents and were able to celebrate 52 years of marriage before Daddy died. I can't believe Maurice and I will celebrate out 60th Aug. 26th The Lord Willing!   Happy Independence Day Friends!

Husband Maurice's favorite activity, and favorite place to do it!

He really likes checking out the Hatcherys.  He couldn't get a good picture though!

I enjoy watching and listening to the water, and watching the fishermen too!

But, From my viewpoint while working on handwork!

Even though we don't camp any more we still go thru the campground and smell the wood smoke! So delightful!

We camp at the Lodges now! And I spend a great deal of time in the beautiful lobby!

I discovered such cute old former  gas filling stations  in Cassville this time!

Little pieces of history "Dolled Up"

I love finding small buildings and houses! Hope you can get away for a few relaxing days soon too!
