Good afternoon,

Virtual Tour
I like going to cemetaries in the daylight. It was nice of the cemetary comminsioner to allow us to do some gravestone rubbings. The black paper with the silver crayon looks great. It gold crayons were rich looking but I thought the silver had more contrast. Sometimes gravestone rubbings are not allowed becasue it may deteriorate the stone.

I have heard of Paula Deen. Some of you are far more worldly than I am. Is she still alive?

http://www.juliettegordonlowbirthplace.org/ I have been a GS since I was 5 or so. So, this is a must see for me. She was a woman before her time. A creative artist. So, bear with me while we tour this house.

I am not so sure about those dresses. they are very spectacular. I think I would go with blue to seto ff my eyes and go with my coloring. The sunburn from the raft trip has faded. I do not however have the requisite peaches and cream complexion.

I am looking forward to the beach. Are there good shells to collect?

I am glad Penny's dh is looking forward to our arrival. I can handle a chainsaw if he has any work he needs done about during our stay. I am handy with a fence tool as well.

Keep those shoes tied.

Happy Birthday Diane, hope it is a better day than yesterday for you!!!!!
Holly, put me down for 6 hours yesterday. I did a load of laundry, then made pasties for supper and the freezer. For those of you who do not know what those are, they are an individual pie crust stuffed with meat, potatoes, carrots, onoins, salt and pepper and baked. It is a yooper meal here in Upper Michigan. Alot of work to make, but good to eat and freeze for more meals.
More later, am still looking for a dress too.

You gals are so nice to worry about me. My illness is a very long story. Back in 1987 I was diagnosed with PSC which is a rare form of liver disease. There is no cure for this chronic condition. I almost went to meet with God at the pearly gates in the early 90's when I contracted hepatitus non C. I have been fine for several years now and will continue to be ok. However right now the disease has raised its ugly head again. My family doctor sent me to see 2 specialists who acted like I was dying and they are now sending me back to Mayo Clinic. They told me I was going to get in there in the next 2 weeks. I knew better than that! Got a call this morning and my appointments and tests will start the week after memorial day. By that time I hope to be doing a lot better. Yes, I am lucky to be going to Mayo Clinic. I only live 2 hours from the Rochester clinic in MN. A lot of people around use the clinic, but it is hard to get a referral from local doctors.

On May 5th Darwin will celebrate his 6th birtday as it has been 6 years since he has had his major stroke. Mayo Clinic didn't give him much hope, but he is a fighter! He drags his foot when he walks, has learned to use his left hand instead of his right, drives, and lives a fairly normal life. The big problem is that he can not speak. My biggest concern is that if I ever get to sick to take care of both of us what will happen for him. I understand 90% of what he communicates while our families only understand about 20%. You know what - God has taken care of us all these years and He will continue to hold us in his arms when we can no longer take care of youselves.

I am sorry to sound so morbid. Believe me when I say I am ok, because I am.

Taa taa for now - tell Paula Dean I send my love and she is to stop eating all that butter!!!! giggle

Good Afternoon everyone. First order of business is to wish our gal Dianne a HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

So sorry to hear that your day leading up to your big day kinda sucked, but if you have running water today and heat, life must be looking better.

Now, I would like to announce a new game, just for us over 50's. There is a time limit, it will end probably tomorrow maybe the next day ... It's called "Who did Marianne send Dianne's Birthday Card to???" Everyone gets one and only one guess. And of course, we all know it wasn't sent to Dianne, because, well..., what fun would that be?

I was up early and ready to post Happy Birthday to a certain Over 50 when I double checked my list of birthdays. Imagine my surprise to see Dianne's name... So let's get the game going because SOMEONE is going to know the right answer soon!

PS Dianne, dear, your card will be late ... well, it's late anyway ... Dianne, dear, your card is going to be very late.

For Pete's Sake.

Hi All,

I haven't read the last two pages but I had to quickly come on and THANK Thelma for turning me onto the Eagles in Decorah! Today before I left work I checked them out and got to see Papa bringing back lunch to Mama and she in returned chewing it up and feeding it to the two babies that just hatched. I didn't see any of them yesterday so I am assuming those two may have hatched later yesterday/last night/this morning?? Anyway, what a treat! I had six people standing around watching it.

Then I left and went to help my friend Holly move her art gallery for the second day and I'm on my way out to do more tonight but I just had to tell Thelma a BIG THANK YOU! I sent the link to my father and hope he gets to see it. In his heyday he was Chief of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife and these days he can only enjoy it in his yard or through us kids, so again, THANK YOU!!

Hope you are all doing well. Holly I have had 5 hours yesterday and so far 6 today of moving and boy are we moving!

Thelma,

You do not sound morbid in the least. You sound as though you have faced a very serious disease with strength and wit and that you have helped Darwin through a very difficult recovery. It seems you two have a wonderful system. I can understand that it would be worrisome to consider being one without the other. You are in my prayers that that is a long time off!

In the meantime, it sounds as though your camera will keep you plenty entertained. I remember your mentioning your desire for one more than once. so glad your dream is coming true. I will look forward to your posts.

Marianne, I am guessing the birthday card went to Nancy, am I right? I almost did the same thing!! LOL!!!
Bunny, great dresses!!! All you girls founs so many beautiful dresses to wear in Savannah. All eyes will be on you for sure!!!!
Thelma, it sure takes a long time for you to get in at Mayo. I had 2 surgeries there. When I went, it only took a week or so for my fist appointment. Been there 12 times, from here ity is over 400 miles one way. They are good, but look out if you owe them money, they treat you like a criminal. I got very bad treatment there the last time I had surgery. My last surgery I went to a hospital closer to us and got alot better treatment. I wish you luck.

No Janet, it didn't go to Nancy. I completely missed Nancy's birthday. This is the first birthday card I have sent. Just getting my feet wet with the happy birthday, FGOTM and get well cards. I am hoping to keep up. But, so far, I'm not faring very well!

Next guess?

Thelma, glad to hear your good news and glad you got the date set for your test....both you and Darwin are always in my prayers....hugs and more hugs

Marianne, I wanna play...did you send it to Thelma...? don't know why but that's my guess...lol

Holly, Jim and I could use all the help we can get cutting wood, trying to prepare for the winter and the first one with the wood stove...what a great friend you are...thanks...Jim can't use the chainsaw much since he has no balance and can't stand still...he gets on his knees sometimes if the tree is on the ground already. After having his back broke by a tree while using a chainsaw, I'm surprised he would go near one.

Bunny, love your dresses...think I will look for another...I agree, mine has to much pic...I want more purple...soooo the search continues

Ginny, we much have been watching the eagles at the same time, how bout that. I saw them switchup and got to see the babies too...so I saw they had fish for lunch.

Janet, will you share that recipe, it sounds great...

We went motorcycle riding today to pay bills, was nice getting out. I go Friday for a cashiers test at Bi-lo grocery, it should be a piece of cake, since I was the head cashier for Lowes but not sure it means I will get the job...so prayers would be appreciated please. Tomorrow planting tomatos and peppers so even tho I only moved about one hour today, it will be much more tomorrow..

Lots of hugs and bushels of love to all

(((((Hugs All)))))Penny

Didn't have to go move more. Since it's snowing we decided to do the rest tomorrow, thankfully. I'm so sore!

Thelma, I hope they can find out your problem and help you at Mayo. Please say hi to my cousin who is a Dr. there. Will keep you in my prayers too. (Just read your condition, I hope it is in remisison soon, long before your appointment)My folks are like you and Darwin I think. Mom can't see well, Dad can. Mom can hear, Dad can't. They take care of each other, which I think is what marriage is all about, right?

Penny, those items are beautiful that you received from Jan. What a sweet friend! I loved the bag and it gave me an idea, so thank you Jan!

I forgot to mention early, it's SNOWING at my house! I can't believe it snowing now. We have had so little all year. They say 2 - 5 inches tonight, yuck!

Penny - Stop making me ROFLMBO please! I'm so sore from moving my friend, lol. Actually, it's adorable. I don't know why more people don't wear short outfits like your's. After all, we are in the South and it's HOT! **Giggle**

Oh no, you too Marianne, lol! (Your comment after Penny's dress photo)

Kathy, here's a true cute story. When we moved my elderly Aunt here from Seattle, believe it or not, she came with bloomers! Who'd a thought it!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DIANNE - I sure hope today is far better then yesterday for you and that you get something special done for you or given to you.

Janet - My mother use to make that dinner without the pie crust. She would make hamburger patties, put all of those items on top of them and wrap them individually in tinfoil and bake them for our supper. She called them Hobo dinners.

Marianne, regarding the card, I'm going to say Glenda.

Virtual Tour

Thank you ALL for saving me on the Ferry Boat. I tend to do before I think and I think I'm still 25, so I do get myself into trouble a lot! Good thing Holly was thinking for me!

Now that we have gone through the cemetary maybe we can rent the movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. I've never see it but remember when it came out. I didn't know it was set in this cemetary.

Holly, did you get Johnny Mercer's stone rubbing and/or Conrad Aiken? The grave of Little Gracie is very touching if you didn't see it.

Isn't there anyone I can talk into the midnight tour? I mean really ladies, it's nothing that isn't there during the day time.

250 year old Oak tree's is amazing to see! And when they told us why they were planted I was very impressed that they would know this back in 1764. In case you missed it, it is the most hurricane resistant tree in North America!

When we go to Tybe Island I think we should all give the locals a "fashion show" on the pier in our gowns. And I for one have to try the shrimp!

Ok, I picked out this gown for day time walking in Savannah.


And this one for evening. I always seem to pick dark colors, I guess so my blonde hair and fair Swedish complexion contrast with the clothes.

Now I'm sitting here staring at my computer because everything I've just spent the last 15 minutes typing here just went away - I don't know what I did - it just went away!! Arghhhh!! I'm not going to try to remember what I typed.....

I am still unable to post any kind of picture here. Not off the internet nor pictures off my phone. (Except for that pirate pic.)

Ginny: I love your fancy dress and would have picked one just like it in a lighter violet and with a light rose shawl. I also like you're walking around dress - but brown shades I think.

Thelma: You and Darwin are in my prayers. I hate that part of life that makes our bodies so susceptible to pain and illness.

Dianne: Happy Birthday. I hope this will be your best year ever!!

Marianne: Did you send Dianne's birthday card to yourself?

Good night ladies.

Happy Birthday, Dianne! I do hope the rest of the week is more pleasant. A glass of wine and a big chunk of chocolate can make most things more bearable.

Holly, I thought the silver on black rubbings were more tasteful than the gold. I agree it was kind of the gentleman to allow us to make the rubbings.

Almost forgot to mention that Paula Deen, who has a restaurant in Savannah called The Lady & Sons ... is a T.V. cooking personality. She LOVES butter. (She's also got a magazine, dvds, cookbooks, and now a line of "stuff.")

I read Midnight In the Garden of Good and Evil. I thought it was good but it definitely isn't for everyone.

Penny, I'm looking forward to your southern hospitality.

Bunny, your dresses are so classy! Exquisite choices.

And, Ginny, I am enthralled with the deep raspberry and black number - and your traveling gown is very lady-like and perfectly understated.

Well, I guess I have to share this space with Glenda because she couldn't stand to be left out of the Southern Belle gown extravaganza. Here we are - sharing a secret ... can you guess which one is Glenda and which one is me? (Hint, she just always has to one-up me ... this time she's showing more - ahem - skin!)



I also have a white dotted swiss number trimmed in black which is very fetching, but I seem to have misplaced it. Did someone borrow it? I will understand.

Thelma - I must echo the sentiments above. You are a strong gal to have all this going on and just dealing with it. You and your DH are in my prayers.

Can we also be sure to keep Glenda's brother in prayer? He's not doing so well.

Kathy, we all know your frustration! Have we introduced you to Sticky Notes or Notepad yet? Most of us write on them and then copy and paste here.

One more thing, belles, ... The APRIL FARMGIRL OF THE MONTH will be announced on Friday (a day early) because we are heading back up to Oakhurst for the weekend - and I cannot be sure I will have an internet connection up there to announce on Saturday. So, girlfriends, check in around noontime on Friday to find out who will be wearing the April FOTM crown!

No, Thelma, Janet doesn't need to watch her mailbox either! And Thelma doesn't have a card from me coming either, Penny. Ginny is probably the closest so far since I did also mail a get well card to Glenda. Kathy, I will keep an eye on my mailbox since Glenda's did come back before I resent it yesterday, so ... you could be right.

I thought I was watching the eagles at the same time as Penny and Ginny, but then I realized they were eating a bird when I was watching. This evening it looked like a squirrel was flown in for dinner...

All the dresses as so so pretty. I do wish I could have just once worn a dress like that! Just swishing up the lane under my parasol towards the porch to have a glass of lemonade with a mint leaf in it. SIGH

Holly I moved for three and a half hours today. Trying to start some spring cleaning.

Love all the dresses. I just can't find the right one. My color is baby blue, but cannot find the exact one I like that will fit me. I am pretty short,5'1".
Put me down for 4 hours today, That was ironing fabric for sewing projects. I llike to do as much ironing before I start sewing, that was I can sit at the machine longer.

Does standing in line at the post office count as moving? Probably not. Well, laundry and grocery shopping at Whole Paycheck counts. I get another ONE hour today.

Happy Birthday, Dianne!

Yep, Thelma, I've been here all the time. I don't comment often though..you ladies are hard to keep up with. (and my mouse quit working. So, I have to get used to key board mouse again...grr) BTW..praying for you..we've spent many days up at Mayo for many reasons..I'm actually glad they are close.

Ladies, I have been following your trip..DH and I took a similar one last October (not quite as lively though..dang). We drove to FL to visit SILs and then returned home by way of Charleston, Savannah..if you get the chance swing up to Ebenezer, GA. ..not far from Savannah. There is a church there 1734(Lutheran) still in use. Each brick was hand made by the congregation. You can still see their finger and hand
prints in the bricks. The congregation built the little town and their income was made by raising silk worms and then selling the silk. Cotton eventually put them out of business.

Back to Savannah..I had forgotten about Paul Deen's restaurant until just a couple of weeks ago..I thought I could smell butter all over that city. Also, after touring the city and Bonaventure, I had to read Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil as soon as we returned. I could feel as if I were right in the story since being there. And, last week one of the Chefs on a food/travel show had dinner with the real Lady Chablis (from midnight). Sorry to go on and on..the trip made a lasting impact.

btw I am 63 and don't look a day over 63. Nighty-night.

Happy Birthday Dianne. Have a wonderful and special day and a celebrate as long as you can. With this group our birthdays seem to be celebrated more than a day.

Thelma you are in my prayers. Having had Hepatitis c I can understand what it is like to have a chronic illness. Hopefully it will go into remission by May. I am so glad you got the camera. What good news! Thank you so much for the eagle site. It is just wonderful.

Oh these dresses you gals are finding. I spent an hour yesterday just looking and couldn't get my dress posted. My computed locked up and I was so frustrated. I want to post a yellow dress and was all thumbs. Can anybody post a yellow dress for me? Please! I will be so appreciative. I will buy you a pretty hanky at one of the stores in Savannah if you will, I promise.

Ginny those dresses are gorgeous. The color pink is so pretty with the black.

Buuny that green is so soft and lovely. It will look just perfect on you. Excellent choice.

Holly what a good idea to do stone rubbings. I once did some on man-hole covers in the street when I took an art class as well as on raised signs on buildings. It was really fun. I wold like to do some of the southern double first names like Sally Ann or Billy Bob. I know a lady here whose mother always called her Cornelia Ann. She still laughs when she remembers her mother yelling that at her.

Darlys I saw you at the town Post Office mailing a package. You must have been busy shopping already. I must have overslept. Well, I will go shopping later after we lunch at Paula Deene's.

I had fun yesterday going through a new antique store in our little town. Then spent some time at the library. Holly you can put me down for 3 hours yesterday. I did a mostly walking and some play time with the animals.

My guess is that the birthday card went to Betty.

Hugs to all. xoxo

Nancy

Make everyday a celebration of the heart.

Hi Everyone

Holly put me down for an hour of movement. I was busy all day. Baking bread and playing with Gkids. All things I love to do. I figured if I couldn't be outside in the dirt, then I would have fun inside. LOL

Thanks for all the Birthday wishes. You girls brighten even the cloudiest day.

Thelma you are not morbid. Life is just that, life. Thank you for sharing. Now my prayers are more spacific. You are a treasure to all of us.

Marianne that was the joke at our house. Dad gave mom running water for her birthday. LOL I am glad I married a man who can fix things.

Marianne that means I get to cellebrate my birthday again when your card gets here. Awesome! LOL

Bunny I love the dresses. Green is usually not my color but those are really pretty.

Penny I will pray for test goes well and you get the job. I would love to help with the firewood. If Holly cuts I'll stack.

Ginny wow I didn't know anybody else ate Hobo dinners. I use to make them all the time when the kids were little. They loved them.

Ginny Love the gowns. I really ned to look more for a gown to wear.

Darlys I have been praying for Glenda's brother ut I will add an extra prayer for him. As one of my friends said the other day "Pray harder"

Thanks again for all of the birthday wishes. It was a pretty good day all in all. Nothing broke! LOL

Virtual Tour

Holly I was never a GS but my oldest DD was and I would love to tour the house. I think it is a great idea to help out at the homes we stay at.

I am still looking for a dress. I just can't seem to find one that I like.

I hope there is sea glass on the beach. Holly can look for shells but I want to add to my sea glass collection I started when I was in Nome.

I am up for a midnight tour of the cemetary and I promise not to scream as long as no one (Darlys) gooses me and yells BOOO!

Darlys: I do not know about 'sticky pads' on the computer. Due to my swiss cheese memory, I do have stickies all over my house to remind me about stuff, but not on computer. Please let me in on this little tid bit.

Dianne: there is sea glass on the beaches around Tybee Island. One year, I picked up enough to cover a small flower pot. It's a beautiful mixture of blues and greens and one piece that is either light purple or pink? So, yes, there is plenty of shells, star fish, sand dollars and just plain shells. My kids always picked up a small baggie full every summer then glued them on a wooden picture frame to put their favorite pic in from that vacation.

OK - so where are sleeping tonight? Did I hear somebody say we'll be chopping wood for our dinner? I can't chop (shoulders + arthritis) but I can carry & stack till my knees give out.

4 hours for me today. I'll be doing the final soil turning before I plant the beans. Dirt is ready, manure is ready (holding nose) daughter is ready to help. All I need is to get on my muck boots and get moving.
I'll be sewing more pillow cases this afternoon for the million pillow cases. I have about a dozen already cut out and waiting. I just have to get myself onto my sewing room and get busy.

And on that note, I've been thinking about maybe ....hmmm...has anybody done a fabric swap? I mean just take a yard of fabric and mail it off to someone else, who sends a yard off to someone else and on and on and on. Oh wait....isn't there a chat room just for this kind of thing? Guess I'll have to look into that later. For now, I'm off to the garden.

Later ladies....
