Basketball Hoop

| May 17, 2010

For many years we had a basketball hoop here in the yard. Our two oldest grandsons lived here, and used it every day. Sometimes if I close my eyes, I can hear the ball banging on the driveway out front. The boys are long gone, one in the Navy and one in the Army. This […]

Snow, and an Impending Visit

| February 25, 2010

I have spent a little time on the end of a snow shovel this week, Papa even ran the blower once or twice. I actually looks a little like winter here now, but I can feel spring in the air, and I am looking forward to it. GS3 and sisters GD1 and GD2 will be […]

Finished Product

| December 18, 2009

A Facebook and genealogy society friend asked me about the doll castle. I met to post photos sooner, but time flies when you are having fun, and I been having fun lately. The doll house will be presented to it’s owner Sunday morning when the kids open their gifts. This was really Papa’s project, so […]

The Service Flag

I wrote about my grandmother’s Service Flag today.  If you do not know what a Service Flag is, you can read about it and see it on Granny’s Genealogy.

Missing, But in Action!

| December 1, 2009

I feel as if I have been busy, but I can not tell exactly if anything is done. Papa and I made a flying trip to Georgia last week. This time last week, we were fresh off a wonderful Valerie Smith and Liberty Pike show in Maumee, Ohio and headed for Knoxville. Valerie and the […]

Life Intervenes

| November 16, 2009

I have been absent, I know that. Last week, while I was counting my chickens and getting organized to head out to a fine music event in Ohio, Papa had a little medical problem. He spent a couple of days in a hospital, and I spend some time there with him. Things smoothed out, and […]

A castle can’t be a castle without a few accessories. We are working on the furniture. The kitchen and dining room look like this today: The furniture kits, stained: The bathroom, partly assembled and painted: More kits, waiting to be stained: We are learning a few new skills while working on this little project. They […]

Doll Castle

Those who are not on Facebook may not have been subject to Papa’s newest project. He is making a doll CASTLE for GD2 for Christmas. First it looked like this: Then this: And (Ta-Da!) the finished inside rooms look like this: The outside: This thing is big, so he is making a short little table […]

Use Whatever You Have

| October 19, 2009

I was at a garage sale in the early spring a couple of years ago, and found some wonderful pillows. Before I knew it, they were in my van. When I got home, I wasn’t sure what to do with them, so I stowed them away in my back storage area. When we were ready […]

Village People

| October 15, 2009

Our favorite place is Greenfield Village. GD1 considers “Grandma’s village” her personal territory. She has always liked the bus and the Model T’s the best, but other things interest her, too. While we were getting ready to head down there, she told me that a person in the next subdivision had a Model T in […]
