This was the scene when MDH and I got back from our Thrift Store run.
It's been going on about 2 hours. Apparently there is a hostage situation in a house on our road. Two swat teams and bullhorns... "Come out the front door. No one will get hurt." I can't tell you how uneasy this makes me. I used my zoom lens, so, no, it's not that close to my house, but still too close for comfort.
I have spent countless hours watching the comings and goings of "my" backyard birds to the feeders in this tree. It's just outside my patio door.
This is what I woke up to this am. We had a big wind last night, the ground has been soaked for weeks, and the poor tree has been dead for 5 years. I never had the heart to take it down. The birds LOVE it!..now I have no choice. Yikes!
I loved it when we would visit Gramma and she would let me cut up her magazines. My favorite finds were the Betsy McCall paper dolls in McCall's magazine.Well, I was given thislink where they have images of ALL the Betsy McCall paperdolls ever printed! AND, they are by month and year. So, I checked it out, and here is what was printed the month and year I was born.
I'm a mother to one awesome young woman, ,grandma to four sweet girls and one ornery boy, AND I'm now a GREAT gramma! I live to garden, love to sew and craft. I enjoy nothing better than to kick back with a good book!
