Well, I am not enjoying the stock market, and before all my inheritance is gone, I thought I would buy me a car. A 1953, MGTD. I have always wanted this car. My first car was a MG 11000, I borrowed the money from my grandmother to buy it, paid her back every week. Worked really hard for that car. My parents worked really hard for this one, I think they would approve. My mother would have loved to go to lunch in this car.

Old House

Does it ever make you sad, when you pass an old empty house
Thinking of the mysteries and what it's all about
Wondering who lived there, and why they had to leave.
Only in their mind, could they relive the past, maybe in a nursing home or maybe they have passed.
Time & time again, I think about my childhood house
Wondering who lives there
and thinking what it is all about
hoping they will love it
and bring happiness once again.
Here's to old houses, may they live again

Check out the books I made, not bad for being out of it all weekend with a migraine headache. How bout that stitching!!!!! We used regular paper for the inside (signature) and inside the little book I made wraps for each signature to match the pretty paper, outside. The instructor was wonderful - Joyce Sievers.

Dahlonega, Georgia

I took a bookbinding class at the Campbell School over Memorial weekend, it was so much fun. Made three books, two came out really nice, the third was a bit lopsided.
On our drive home we drove through a small town in Georgia, called Dahlonega. I have visited this town before and really loved it. On Memorial Day the town put up flags and crosses with the names of the fallen soldiers, back to World War One. I gotta tell you it brought tears to our eyes. What a wonderful tribute. Gotta love those small towns.
