Here you will always find the American flag

waving and the American eagle flying.

Come join in for some time to relax.

Flowers are those little colorful beacons of the sun from

which we get sunshine when dark, somber

skies blanket our thoughts.

Such a pretty kitty. Love the nose.

I sure do remember this. I always thought the place

indented to put your pencil was neat. I know, silly, but

I did. Also some of the desks I remember like this, the top

opened to put other books and things in.

Too pretty to use and who would need a warmer for

under this one with the pretty coat it has on.



The car heater

We all owe our thanks to Margaret A Wilcox who invented

the car heater in 1893. Margaret also invented a combined

clothes and dishwasher.

The Game Monopoly

This popular board game was designed by Elizabeth Magie in

1904, originally called the Landlord's Game. The purpose of this

game was to expose the injustices of unchecked capitalism.

Her game was ripped off by Charles Darrow who sold it to Parker

Brother's 30 years later. However Parker Brothers later paid

Elizabeth $500 for her game. Gee thanks!


Photos of everyone, of everything

should be handled with care.

They are indeed priceless.

Oh my, another chocolate yummy and with bananas!

Such a pretty pillow.

Over the river and thru that snow .....

And Mr Cardinal with snow on his beak.

What a neat little cozy and Winter'ish setting ....

A very cold kiss for sure, but the snowman has a smile for sure.

Remind a friend today, that these trials are all for His glory.

He is refining us everyday. Like a silversmith, He never

takes His eyes off of us. He holds us over the fire just

long enough and won't let us be destroyed....He holds us

there until He can clearly see his image in us.

     You took the time,

thank you!

 have a good day ...

Now, till another time, be safe in

all you do. Be aware of everything and

everyone around you at all times. A

very good habit .... take care!
