Crocheted Square.....

This is the square I crocheted for my partner for the month of May. It goes to Bindu in Toledo, OH. I would like to make an afghan from these directions, but the flowers are so tedious to make. Maybe someday when there is nothing else for me to do!!!!!

Close Up.....

About 10 o'clock this morning I went out to work in my yard and this is what I saw. There was a circle around the sun and it was the colors of the rainbow. I have seen circles around the sun before but never in color. The pictures doesn't capture the true beauty that I saw.

Bird's Nest at Big Lots.....

If you look closely, you will see the nest. This bird had a good eye for a good home for the babies!

Deleted My Last Post!!!!

I deleted my last post showing my drivers license pictures. I didn't hide my address and I didn't know it would be legible. I made the pictures again, but they were awfully blurry, so I won't bother to post them again. A few of you got a good laugh anyway!!!! LOL

Face From Food.....and Birthday Cake....

This is food from my birthday meal.....We started to eat and Lisa made this in her plate. As you can tell, the hair is slaw, the eyes brussel sprouts, the nose a slice of banana and the mouth a piece of asparagus. I think it's cute. Sure did put a smile on my face!
Here is a picture of my birthday cake. Lisa bought it at a little bakery in Knoxville, called The Magpie Bakery. It was an Italian Cream cake and I think that was the best cake I had ever tasted. You call and place an order and they make the cake specifically for cake at a time. It isn't like Walmart where they make 50 at one time. It tasted like a real homemade cake!!!! Thank You Lisa!!!!!

Turning The Big SEVEN O......

On Friday, May 4th, I will be turning 70. Here are some thoughts about the occasion.
"When Will I Be Old"?
When I was three, it seemed to me
I simply could not comprehend,
The ancient age of twenty-three...
(Or any age past six.)
Of course, when all the years between
Had passed, and twenty-three arrived,
I realized I wasn't old at all,
But youth personfied.
And somewhere down the distant road,
Lay forty-three, the sunset age of life.
When "young" was truly past,
and "old" was firmly fixed, I thought.
But at forty-three, you see,
I scratched my head in disbelief....
Because I knew I wasn't old,
And youth was still at hand.
Aha! Sixty-three! Yes, Sixty-three.... That's when I'll be old beyond recall
At last the truth had dawned on me.
A man's not old 'till sixty-three.
Will I be old at eighty-three?
Most likely not, you see.
If I should reach that golden age....
Still young at heart I'll be!
