Sorry Linda, I didn't mean to leave you out...WELCOME!! Jump right in; we get a bit crazy sometimes, but you won't meet a better group of gals.

Well, Penny, I think I have your email address, but as I didn't save it right...I don't know which one is yours... Same with Nancy. Boy, do I feel dumb... I am cooknnana@gmail.com; could you send me a note so I can have your addresses to send the story along....please.

Squashes and Hugs!

Kathryn

Good morning, "ladies" - (I use the term with much poetic license ...) The sun is shining here and although it looks like it is going to be a gorgeous day, the weather guessers say there is a front moving in. We may be able to beat it as we are, again, headed up to Oakhurst this evening.

Patty, gf, I have been thinking of you. I am so sorry to hear that you are struggling with so much pain. Even a backache will make me whine. But I am shocked that you continue to do your already amazing projects and tend to the birds as if you were an amazon. (Which we all know you are - but, c'mon!) You will continue to be in my prayers - but you have to listen to your body. BTW, those pictures are great.

Thelma - I agree that carpet squares would be a fun (and, for the most part, most comfy) way to do your basement floor.

Penny - you will ace the test at the store. We are all rooting for you. Oh, and that lovely picnic dress is very fetching. I have to admit that I was just a tad surprised at how much skin you covered. I do love the dress, though.

Kathryn - that's a LOT of photos. That's my pink dress! Since Ginny, snagged the hot pink/black one from the rack before I got there, and I lost my white/black one, all I had was my gold one. But I'm delighted you managed to find that one. We had to leave Savannah so fast ... (what with the church ladies running us out of town) that it must have been mis-packed.

Kathy - you have taste! Your 3-tiered frock with the hat is very appropriate. But how did you get that hunk with the camera to don a matching touristy outfit? You've been holding out on us, gf! Now your traveling attire does look practical albeit a bit toasty. True, you might want to ditch the muff - and the hood, too, for comfort's sake.

Janet -- those sleepless nights knock the wind out of your sails. I actually had a lot of them before the surgery. Now, 8 weeks out, and I am doing so much better. I hadn't even connected the dots before.

Holly, I googled Ebenezer ... if you haven't already, you may want to give it a go. We may not be able to stop. But, just in case, this is the beginning of one result:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ebenezer,_Georgia -- Ebenezer, also known as New Ebenezer, is a ghost town in Effingham County, Georgia, United States, along the banks of Ebenezer Creek. It was listed on the ...

Nancy! Now everyone knows and I won't be blinding them when I take of my fabulous hat. What you didn't tell them was that my hair wasn't intended to be this red! A new copper penny pales in comparison! Even DH did a double take when he got home from work. He liked it blonde ... he loves it red. Go figure. I haven't got a picture of it yet ... but this does have to be recorded!

Less than an hour until April's FGOTM is crowned!

Going over to Across the Fence now to post the April Farmgirl of the Month. Back to share it here right after. But do check there for the "big" to-do. Probably, Sunday and/or Monday since most threads don't know I'm having to post the news early.

No surprise here ....

I have basked in the glow of being March FGOTM and I am now privileged to name the APRIL Farmgirl of the Month ----

Many, perhaps all, of us watch for her "life" posts on the forum. She is an inspiration, she has made me laugh out loud and touched my heart as well. She is very wise, kind, trustworthy, loving and warm-hearted - a patient, gifted and gentle-woman with a great sense of humor.

There is no way to keep this short. April's FGOTM is an amazing, strong woman who stands out among many incredible and worthy women. She, along with her partner, has a large family of adopted children who are lucky to have this generous and spirited angel for their very own mom. She is also a caregiver, in her home, to 2 women with special needs. She farms, has some livestock, can handle a chainsaw, and we've heard stories about her "adventures" with her tractor. She is a handy-woman indoors and out, with carpentry skills to envy. Her abilities are the stuff of legends! She is also an artist creating, among other things, delightful painted miniature dolls of clay.

AND, she led the Over 50 Group on a riotous, virtual trip to Rio and now (even though it's gotta be like herding cats) is mapping and keeping us on track in a wild and fun "Virtual Move It to Lose It" trek around the country.

There's no mystery ... I hereby pass the royal baton (or hoe) to one who deserves our applause. I'm very proud to call her my friend and sister - "Tall Holly" in Vermont! HOLLY PERDUE is April's Farmgirl of the Month!

By the way, Holly, you can tell Ross that the farmgirl you made that miniature doll for ... has boobs to match. Hope he appreciates that.

Congratulations Holly for being picked as April's Farmgirl of the month, wonderful choice Darlys. Holly is my pen pal and I enjoy her letters and friendship so much.
She told me about this thread and how much she enjoys it, guess I need to stop by more often and say hi as I am well over 50:-)
Have a beautiful weekend everyone.
Farmgirl Hugs,
Debbie

Darlys, who are you callin an olde biddie! I'm still spry as a chick... yeah.. right on!

Dianne, sorry the gloves are a must. Every proper lady must have her gloves!

Judy, I'll see you on the porch. I go back and forth all the time. You can't get away that easy!

Penny, awesomeness on your test. So glad for you! Hope it all comes out great.

Holly, congrats on the FGOTM award.. you deserve it big time. Good going Darlys! Great choice.

Boy did I get behind on the pages. If I missed someone... sorry, I still care about everyone! It's all rainy but I had a bunch of errands to do and loved being out in it. It isn't very cold so was a nice trip out. I got some of my school books for my new classes. I didn't realize it but by getting them before class started I got a discount.. so cool. The others I rented. I saved quite a few dollars by renting my school books instead of buying them at the college book store. Then I got a really cool book about crochet and knitted flowers from the library. I'll be working on those for a while. I have a few to finally put on my website but my photos aren't very good. I just don't have a very good camera. My wish is for a Cannon rebel. Maybe someday.

Wow! The carpenters are done for the weekend and it looks pretty cool in the basement. This morning they pulled the steps apart and rebuilt them so they would butt up to the ceiling correctly. They are alot safer now and my mind is buzzing with ideas on how I may finish them off. As soon as I am stronger I'm heading to the home center. Pictures soon

Welcome to our new gals. YOu are going to love it here.

What plans are being made for you travelers this weekend? If I find the strength tomorrow I want to attend a local craft show and then visit my MIL at the nursing home. Sunday there will be Palm Sunday services and then we have a confirmation luncheon to attend. I would like to find a pretty area and practice with my new camera, but doubt I'll be up to that as I wear out easily.

Taa taa for now - have a good weekend every one.

Virtual Tour

Judy, add me to the long list of gals sad to see you leave. We will miss you.

Kathryn, So proud to know someone who writes! How exciting to have something long enough to enter a contest. Good luck.

Patty you are the strongest farmgirl I know of! You just power through the pain. I hope you are pampering your back somewhat, too though. It is not something to take too many chances with.

Welcome Linda. Looking forward to getting to know you.

And to the big news, CONGRATULATIONS HOLLY. Darlys made such a great choice when she named you FGOTM. You work so hard and then lead us through out evenings romps. I have learned to look forward to your posts. Bless you, you try to keep us in line and maybe teach us a thing or two along our way. I fear our adventure would fall apart without your leadership. So, hat's off to you. It's your month. We honor your farmgirlishness!! Thanks for all you do here.

My moving yesterday was 4 hours and today 2-1/2 hours.

Penny, you rocked that test. You go show those youngsters what you are made of !!

Well, I think I caught up somewhat! Oh! Who has been watching the eaglets? I caught a lot of sleeping birdies lately.

See you all in virtuality...

What a day! Guess who is gonna win Marianne's game?

[quote]Originally posted by rough start farmgirl

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

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.



IMAGINE MY SURPRISE -- when I went to the mailbox today and received a beautiful BIRTHDAY CARD (my birthday is in September) from none other than Marianne! I can't send it along until Monday -- so she's right! Your card will be very late! And, precious, please forgive me -- I will replace it with something good -- I ate one of the chocolates -- by accident, of course. I'm sorry, Marianne, but it was kinda your fault. You've seen my signature sign off ...

Good evening everyone,

Imagine my surprise when I arrived home today to find a package from Darlys with a note inside telling me that she has proclaimed me FARMGIRL OF THE MONTH OF APRIL. Then she posted that very nice note on the Across the Fence board. I was blushing so much I could not decide if I was having a hot flash, a fever blush or excitement.
I am so happy to be included in the group of women before me. Here are pictures of the contents of my surprise box from California.
