Yep, that is Gator frying.lol You never know what he will do.
I was surprised with some wonderful gifts, which I will share a couple. Debbie and Michael got me a set of Clarice Cliff red and white transfer ware dishes. I don't have a picture, but I will take one. I was thrilled as I have wanted red and white transfer ware for a long time. The other thing I had wanted forever was a lift top desk. I bought one I loved, but it was just too big for my house. Dodd and Renda have it. Soooo, for Christmas they bought me one. Found it at an auction in New York and had it shipped. It is perfect. I love it. All my electronics fit in it perfectly. Including my lap top.
After Christmas Earlene Landis came through on her way to Florida. We had the best visit. We went to Clinton the next morning and I think she really likes my little town.
land. It was just wonderful having her and getting to know more about her and her family. I can't wait until she visits again.Primitive Passion Decorating
As you know President Obama was in Clinton on Friday. I don't care what your politics are, it is a big deal when the president, vice president and members of Congress visit your little town at one time. Amanda took Mollie and Andrew to view the motorcade. It was history in the making and they got to be a part of it. The newspaper took a picture of them with their signs. Mollie took her coat off for the picture and she was all dressed up for the President. Wearing a tutu and star shaped sunglasses. I cannot get the picture on my blog. Go to my FB timeline and you can see it.
Another big thing going on Through My Back Door is Olivia leaves for Washington. She, if you remember is going to be an intern with Senator Corker at the Capitol. We are so excited for her, yet I am a bit concerned for her safety as DC can be a hard city. She is smart and will be cautious, but as her Grandmother I am expected to worry.
The Maryville Times did a huge story on her, but I can't get it to download either. Again it is on my timeline.
Can you tell I am having picture issues? My grandson Douglas, completely refurbished my computer and I am having problems with my pictures. He is going to have to guide me through,lol. I apologize for not being able to download the newspaper articles.
I have been looking around the house and see I decorate in Three's! Do any f you do that? That will be my next blog post.
For now it is so good to have you come Through My Back Door for the first time in 2015. Lets make it a wonderful year and it is always wonderful when you come Through My Back Door where life is good.
