Pictures from El Salvador.....

The wooden box on the back of this truck is for carrying a casket. It has tassles all inside. After a funeral they ride the casket on the streets. Instead of you going to the funeral home, they bring it to you.

I'm taking the boys home today. Lisa will be home around midnight. I will spend the night and take the boys to school in the morning. Lisa is taking the day off. The week flew by...I knew it would. We didn't do a lot because it rained the first three days and then it was cold and windy...but we enjoyed home time. I hope I am making some good memories for them. Now they are looking forward to school being over so we can do it all over again.

El Salvador Food.....

Don't ask me what this is, but I know it is good. Lisa says their maid (Carmen) is a wonderful cook.

El Salvador.....

El Salvador is mountain country. This looks like coffee beans growing on the hill. They grow in the shade so they are planted under big trees.
Where Lisa stayed at Donaldo's brothers house. I like the painting on the wall.
Beautiful bed at the same house.

Cousins and brothers.

I made a trip to Lisa's yesterday to get the grandboys. They will be here a week with me while their Mom and Dad go to Central America. Aren't Spring breaks wonderful? This picture was made in their kitchen. Ryan is almost as tall as his Mom and Lucas weighs more than Ryan. They are 23 and 14. My heart runneth over!

First of all...housework can't kill you, but why take the chance?

Dust bunnies just run behind curtains and under shelves until you put the broom away and then they scoot right back again. I have better things to do than play hide and seek with dust bunnies.

General Cleaning: Mix one quart cup pine scented house-hold cleaner with four cups of water in a spray bottle. Mist the air lightly. Smells like you have been cleaning all day.

Leave dampened rags in conspicuous locations. Develop an exhausted look, throw yourself on the couch and sigh, "I clean and I clean and I still don't get anywhere."

As a last resort, turn on the oven, throw a teaspoon of cinnamon in a pie pan, turn off the oven and explain that you have been baking cookies for a bake sale for a favorite charity and haven't had time to every time!

If this phone could talk, I know it could tell many good stories. We bought two of them when we first got married 52 years ago. The other one was at my Mothers house (next door) and we had them hooked up so we could talk. I don't know what happened to the one she had. Mine now hangs on my den wall. It could use a good cleaning, but I like it just the same. It's a good conversation piece if nothing else. What do you think? Do you want to give me a ring? One long and two shorts!
