Good morning!! Happy pines day!!! Happy hump day!!!! YAY!!!!

I never had time to catch up on posts yesterday, but I'm hoping to read at least what I missed since yesterday! I did see Brads new camero - looks nice!!! Keep spending Brad!! Keep our economy going! And I think I saw that it's CS's birthday!!! So HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! And I hope you have a great day!!!!

Last night my Mom came over & helped me put up peaches! I saved enough out to make a peach crisp & it's darn tasty! The house smelled soooo good while it was baking!!! Then I picked tomatoes...they are waiting for me tonight! Salsa? Stewed Tomatoes? More juice? Hmmmm - huge decisions!!! Lol! Supper is in the crock pot, so that gives me a little more time for canning! Seems there is always something to do this time of year!!!

Hope you are all having a GREAT day & we'll see ya at the PINES tonight - 1st Brrr night! FUN!!!!

You guys are being kind, but I appreciate it. It's going to look MUCH better when we're finished. We're working on the new color scheme right now. I'm thinking a bright, metallic silver with two wide black stripes down the length.

My plan is to sell the other two cars when we're finished, to help offset all this cost.

Carl says "YES" (I think somehow he's able to speed up time!) and his theme tonight is "welcome to the burrrs".
I suggested to him he might have meant "bers" but he said that was too pat. With the theme referring to "burrrs", the drink of choice will be ice-cold smoothies to herald the end of summer heat and the soon to arrive crisp fall weather.
(To be honest, I think the SP is probably ovestocked on something that will likely be blended into the smoothies and I'm not sure I want to try one!)
Carl and Smoothies? I think I'll pass.

Good Morning MMC!!!!!! It's going to be another decent day here with a high of 81. I actually slept over 8 hours last night, so I have some energy today. So I'm going to tackle my kitchen today. I want to clean every thing off of the counters and scrub them down. Then I'll move the dryer, freezer, stove and fridge and scrub the floors. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!

I have a neat story to share with you guys!
On Sunday, while I was visiting my family in La Crosse, my sister took me out to lunch. We went to the Hungry Peddler, a favorite restaurant for both of us. When we pulled into the parking lot, an advertisement on a car caught my eye. It looked like a Christmas wall hanging that I put up each season. I had to investigate =]
So we walked over to it, and sure enough, it was!! On each of the front doors, there was detailing that read "Believe in the magic of Christmas"! The license plate read Santa C! A Santa hat is centered on the dashboard =}
There were bumper stickers too, that read "My other car is a sleigh" & NP (North Pole). There was also an e-mail address, so I just e-mailed Santa for more information-I'll let you know his response!

When we went inside, I took a picture of the digital Christmas countdown that is hanging near the bar and kitchen area. I always smile when I see it!! The owner, Kevin, is a friend from high school's father. They are also big Christmas lovers! He saw me taking a picture of the countdown, and he asked if I realized that Santa was actually dining in the next room. He pointed him out to me, not that I would have missed him, he had his white long beard and was dressed in all red!! �� It was awesome!!

I was hoping to catch him before he left, unfortunately that didn't happen. But it was pretty cool to see the big guy so early in the season!!

Here are a few pictures of his vehicle!!

Last year we saw over 14,000 children. We dress in red all year, and since my wife is also a ventriloquist, we do things with kids all year. Never dreamed that retirement could be so much fun!"

So cool!!!

I think that was the earliest I have ever seen a Christmas commercial, and it is just awesome!!!!!

Oh awesome! I love Hallmark - I will have to keep my ears open for it! Thanks!

Can we be back around to the Shispering Pines weekly open house day again already?
Carl says "YES" (I think somehow he's able to speed up time!) and his theme tonight is "welcome to the burrrs".
I suggested to him he might have meant "bers" but he said that was too pat. With the theme referring to "burrrs", the drink of choice will be ice-cold smoothies to herald the end of summer heat and the soon to arrive crisp fall weather.
(To be honest, I think the SP is probably ovestocked on something that will likely be blended into the smoothies and I'm not sure I want to try one!)
You are too funny!

I FINALLY finished my video project for church. It's a video to celebrate Grandparents Day. Wayne and I spent the last 2 Sundays interviewing children about their grandparents then I put that together with a brief history of that day. I ran into so many issues with my video maker. I spent my entire Friday working on it and never got it working. My son was helping me with it as well. On Saturday after a few hours we got it working. Took me most of the day yesterday to edit, tweak the audio on it, and add music. Phew! All that work and it's a 5 minute video! I know those who are familiar with video making know the time it takes to even make a video that short.

I don't have time to hang around but wanted to stop by and say hi and hope you all have a Merry Day!

Someone please send some cool air this way! All week will be 99-100 degrees. Christmasstar, I know it's your birthday but do you mind getting your big fan out and send that cool air this way? Have a Happy Birthday!
You have a Merry Day too! How nice of you to do the video!!!!

Awe! That is so cute! Wish I worked where you work!!!

Well, it's official, both my boys are in elementary school. I watched them both get on the bus, and LC was smiling, and having fun, I was worried he was going to freeze up and fight going. I got some pictures of them before the bus came and them on the bus. I miss them both but I knew this was coming, my boys are growing up. But...
FREEDOM from daycare bills!!!! Wooohoooo!!!!!

I have to head to work in a couple hours, not really what I want to do, but I have no choice.

Enjoy the Pines today!!!
Glad everything went well! Hopefully both come home saying they had a great day!!!

Another Wednesday, another gathering at the 'Pines. The "burrr" month festivities have begun. That camel, Carl, sure is clever. To be honest, it's great to see everything pick up at this time of year. We're on the bottom end of the calendar and going straight for our favourite season!

Last night was a good time. Kim and I hung out with my brother and his wife. We played some Xbox Kinect and then visited a local watering hole. It was pretty empty - but after all it was a Tuesday night in a fairly lifeless city. Still, we had a good night. Also, Kim and I accompanied my dad on his daily visit to my 99-year-old grandmother. It was great to see her!

As for today, I think we're just having a barbecue here at my mom's house. It should be delicious! Well, not a whole lot to talk about. Time for some job hunting. Have a great Wednesday, everyone! We're turning that corner toward the weekend!
Sounds like you had a fun night & another good one planned tonight! Hoping & praying you find that job soon!!!

WOW! You won't need to sleep the rest of the week! Ha ha!!! Have a good day - always good when the cleaning is DONE!
