Since Easter is only 9 days away I thought I would show some of my decorations. The basket of bunnies and chicks were my Daughters and I just save them. Does anyone remember the battery operated Bunny on Skates? We had one, can't find it. The egg tree is made from real egg shells. I remember blowing the egg out of the shell and then pasting the material, lace and ribbons on. I am amazed they are still in one piece, as I made them in the 80's. The pussy willows they are hanging on are a bit skimpy this year. The egg plate with the chick on top has all of our names and is our centerpiece when the eggs are colored. That was one of the first pieces I painted in the 70's. The bunny w/fancy hat is shaker wood boxes from Michaels, painted with sponge brush. The top 2 are my favorites that I painted in 1978. Mr and Mrs and the purple candy dish. I treat the with loving care and wrap them all with bubble wrap for next year. Hope that you enjoyed seeing my handi work all done before I was bitten by the Quilting Bug!!

Brandon is starting to relax after seeing the DR and the anasteologist and having everything explained to him. He was cool with it all, just anxious to get it done and over with. The top picture was as he left, clowning around. It all took about 45 minutes and Dr came and told us all went well. He removed tonsils & adenoids and put tubes in both ears. This is the 3rd time for the tubes. Dr said he would have a rough day, a lot of pain as he is more like an adult in size than a child . He has pain meds but it was still a rough day. He is now sleeping and has been for a couple of hours . No school or strenous activity for 2 weeks and he must wear tubes in his ears when showering or swimming. Naturally soft foods as tolerated. Thanks for your well wishes
Up bright and early as I am going with my dtr Pattie to take my gs Brandon to the hospital. He is almost 14 and still having trouble with his ears. He has had tubes put in 3 or 4 times. The ENT Doctor is taking out his tonsils and adenoids and putting in tubes again. Bring on the broth, choc pudding, jello etc. He is upset not about the surgery but the fact that his first school track meet was postponed from yesterday to Friday, so now he can't go.

Its not spring till Ritas W@ater Ice opens. Its actually Italian Ice in all yummy flavors. On op ening day they give free cups of ice. Its not a little skimpy cup but a 6-8 oz cup. They make Misto's and blendinis, Gelatis and regular soft serve. We were probably one of the few paying customers as my DH and, I had to have our favorites--Gelatis. He absolutely loves the Mango and I like to try all different flavoras. Yesterdeay I had Black Cherry. Its ice, soft serve, ice again and soft serve again. I have to limit myself to once a week or I could really have one every day. Good thing they close in the Winter. Another week or so its to the boardwalk for Thrashers fries, absolutely the best. Even the seagulls like them, you have to be careful as they sometimes swoop down and snip one away. Are we easily amused or what?????

Grandaughter Katie is in front and GS brandon right rear. After being delayed twice because of snow, they finally had the plunge to raise money for special olympics. Over 2,500 people participated and raised over $500,000. The water temp was 42D and this was the 19th year the Plunge has been held. Lots of fun for a great cause

Hopefully I can upload the pictures with my new card reader. Last Sat Mar 13th was my DH Birthday. This sure was a special one for him. He got to go on a Boy Scout Trip to the AF Base. They toured Air Force 2 wich is mostly used by VP Biden. His pilot is the Cub Scout leader for troop 105. MY GS, GD, dtr Patricia and DH left Delaware bright and early Sat am. My son Larry and GS Anthony who live in Reston VA met them at the entrance. Everyone had a great time. They saw a awesome slide show, toured the planes and then took pictures and interacted with the personnel

Learning this new laptop, but still having a problem with pictures. Can't figure how to get them from the camera and then how to retrieve them so I can post. I've been keeping busy and will show you pictures when I get the program going. Rain is forecast for the next couple of days, but I hope not too much. One of our main roads has had some water problems. The road itself is ok and passable but not so for the properties. Our Church has been closed for over a week as parking lot was under water and no way into the CHURCH. There is a woman who runs a kennell down the road that has not been able to open as her pens and access road is under water also. My Doctor is in a new building ( opened in end of last year )and the water is almost up to the rear of the building. Lots of problems because of all the snow we had. Hurry up SPRING!!!!
