It is so good to see you coming Through My Back Door today. The weather is quite warm, but it is nice and cool in the house. You can choose your own coffee. I am having Newmans Own. Get a cup and coffee of your choice and I will make it for you. There has been a lot going on here and it is nice to just sit and visit. No, we aren't watching a football game. I knew you would think that with the title. We are talking life here. A few months ago I had a couple of high school friends for lunch. Remember?
This past weekend, Deb, Michael, Curt and I went to Cape Girardeau, Mo to a shower for Curt and Lindsey. If you remember Lindsey, Her Mom, and sister were here in March for one. We enjoyed them so much. Well, they hosted us at their house, along with Beth and Ryan who drove in from Springfield, Il. Beth had met Lindsey, but not her family.Amanda and Clay had plans with his family this weekend, so they couldn't go. If you could have been there you would have thought we had been friends forever.(At least a quarter)lol. You never heard such laughing and carrying on. The guys bonded and all of them went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast while the girls went to the Breakfast Shower. If you want to see pictures go over to Whitneys blog. She has posted some.
Keeping Up With The Bandermann's
Whitney is my blog buddy. You will see pictures of the beautiful shower as well as both families. When I go away Dasko has to go to doggy camp. It is an hour away, one way, but worth the two hours to take there.He has heated and air conditioned runs,depending on the weather, as well as an outdoor run.He is quite comfortable there and she doesn't crate them. She is there almost 24/7. Laura used to raise and show Rotties, so I trust her with him. She loves him and he gets excited when he goes. I like to think he misses me and won't eat, but it isn't true. He is always happy to see me and get home, but I think he likes going to doggy camp. He got to see an old friend this weekend while he was there. Dasko is such a sweet boy. He is not an alpha dog at all, but he is very protective of me
(Not so much my belongings)lol There is a beach trip around the corner so he will be going back to Laura's.
All quarters of my life, I have loved antiques. I carried a pitcher and bowl home from Ohio on my lap when I was 12 years old, that had belonged to my grandparents. Would NOT let it be wrapped and packed. Don't know why my parents didn't pull rank and make me pack it.lol I am still looking for a couple of things. Don't need them, but would like to have them. I would like a settle and a school masters desk. If I move I might find a place for them. If this house doesn't sell, there is just no room.
One of my favorite antiques is my bed. I love this big old walnut pegged bed.
I love any southern furniture. I especially like Tennessee furniture. I have a couple of dressers I am especially fond of. They were made in Ohio. One is signed and dated by the maker, and it is walnut too.
See the quilts in the corner cupboard? They were all done by my Mother and Grandmother, back in the 1920's.
PS: I want to offer my condolences to Vicki, Out My Window,
She lost her cat of 21 years, Miss Prissie today. We all know how hard it is to lose a beloved pet. We are so sorry Vicki
PSS: I have a few new goodies and some more old quilts to share next time
PSSS: Please continue prayers for our blogging buddies who either they or someone in their family is fighting cancer. Amanda is doing wonderfully.
