May we NEVER FORGET where our country would be without our faith in God. That is why America IS and will ALWAYS BE the land of the free, deep rooted in love, of God and Country. May we NEVER stop saying "In God We Trust". Happy 4th of July week-end to everyone!!!!


I walked in the Relay for Life Friday Night. Two of these pictures came from the paper. It was held at Bristol Motor Speedway and was a great success. Over 300 people walked.

This is part of the Cancer Support Group.
Here are the tents and the place that was marked off for the walk.
It lasted all night, but I left about 8:30. There were fire works and all kind of food and a dance at 5:00 AM. I have never been in such a caring environment. Makes one feel better to know they are not alone. I am thankful I was able to walk!

I just finished reading Twenty Wishes by Debbie Macomber. I thought to myself....I'm going to write down 10 things I would like to see happen. Really think about it. You don't have to post all of them at one time. Everytime you think of it. It took me three days to write mine. Here they are:
1..Sing Again

2..Go to New York City with Ryan and Lucas and see a broadway show.

3..Lose 50 lbs.

4..Play a guitar

5..Get a different that doesn't use so much gas.

6..Keep finding reasons to laugh.

7..Be an inspiration in someone's life.

8..Give to someone who has less than me.

9..Volunteer at the hospital.

10..Dance in the rain in my bare feet.

Alright....who is going to be next?????

FOOD IN EL SALVADOR...Central America.

This is where Lisa has been for the last two weeks. Here's an idea of how they eat in El Salvador. The fruit in the center is how the cashew nut grows. Look at the top of the fruit.....that is the cashew nut! I think the top right plate was Lisa's husband Donaldo's

Crocheted Square for the Month Of June.....

This square goes out this month for my crochet partner exchange. The recipient is Sheri in CA. I thought I would start early and spread a little patriotism.

Storm and Oil Lamp.....

A BAD storm passed through our area last night about 5:00 P.M. The electricity was off for over an hour. Out came the oil lamp. That brought back a lot of memories! We had winds up to 80 miles an hour. The picture below is our neighbor. One of his trees blew across our chain link fence. It was so dark outside that you cannot tell how bad it was. Another one of the neighbors lost two trees....a huge apple tree and a big maple. This morning on my way out I have never seen so many trees down....on top of houses ...on top of cars. I think it was a tornado.

I think I posted this last year, but she is standing there again this the same spot. I thought it was a person, but it's a other words...a dummy used to display clothes. It really fooled this dummy. But isn't that a cute idea? I wonder where you get those things?

Well, it's cherry pickin' time in Tennessee......and the birds are going to get them before I do! I have tried several things to keep them away.....but it isn't working. I will pick them on Monday.
Can she bake a cherry pie, Billy Boy, Billy Boy???? I can taste it now. The trees are loaded. Last year we didn't have any because of the late freeze.

More Cherries.....

Close Up View.....
I hoisted this piece of material up in one tree to deter the birds. It didn't work!
Full view....
Maybe this "moving" duck will scare the birds.....
Looking upward.....
