Just a couple things of note. Phil and I are gearing up for the garage sale season and have attended one auction and several garage sales last weekend and this weekend.  We found some great bargains for ourselves and for resale.   Our first sale will be this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the grange hall (can't remember the name) located seven miles out Steamboat Island Road.  We will be sharing the space (and the cost) with my sister, Dixie and hopefully we will both move a lot of merchandise and we can clean out our carport, daughter, Bobbie's garage and clear out the house a bit.

I went to my cardiologist this past Wedmesday and he has scheduled another echo cardiogram.  He says it is routine and he doesn't expect any changes but wants it done every six months.  Also, Phil has been working on several "honeydos" for me and when he is finished I will try and remember to take some pictures.

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time ...

Phil helped Bobbie and Joe recover her new dining room chairs and this is two of the finished project.  She bought this yardage years ago and it is just beautiful.  The picture doesn't do it justice.  There were only four chairs with the set so we will be on the lookout for two chairs with arms that have the same or similar style.


  1. I sure am glad to read that you are in 'garage sale' mode again. You certainly weren't up to anything like that a year ago. So happy you are feeling great again - don't overdo it though. Went and looked at park models yesterday - and thought of you guys buying your mobile home for a home base. Hope you make lots of money with your sales.

  2. Great chairs... they did a wonderful job on them... Have fun at your garage sales!

  3. Oh I wish I could come to your sale!!!!!!! I'd not be much help but I'd love to look and visit :)

  4. I too love the chairs.. So excited for you. We bought a 84' motorhome 24ft in exchange to paying off all of our bills - we are clear and free and have been for almost 2 years. We are shopping for a newer rig now and love this life style. We have 2 blogs about our rv life. adventures and crafting...
