How to use Your IRS Rebate check...
As you may have heard, each of us will be getting a tax rebate check to stimulate the economy.If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China.
If we spend it on gasoline it will go to the Arabs.
If we purchase a computer it will go to India.
If we purchase fruits and vegetables it will go to Honduras and Guatemala.
If we purchase a good car it will go to Japan.
If we purchase useless stuff it will go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy. We need to keep that money here in America. The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it at yard sales, since those seem to be the only businesses left owned by Americans!!
PASS IT ON!!!!

Jenn over at http://dustbunnyhostage.blogspot.com/ had a interesting day. And as I read her personal ad, I thought I would have fun with mine.
Female, knocking on 50's door. Short, round , hard worker, but hates house cleaning. Loves to cook at her leisure. Not cleaning the kitchen. Out door, (sitting I mean), no strenuous gardening, hiking, out of the question. Would rather not watch sports, loves reading, scrap booking and other crafting. Love long bubble baths and a good book or magazine. Occasional glass of crown and coke. No wine for me.
Loves the beach, sitting on a front porch, sipping ice tea, listening to 60's/70's oldies. Travel a must at least 4 times a year ( I can dream can't I) . Party planner, giving several a year.
Business owner, loves Antique/junk, and receiving flowers for no reason. Voices in my head say I need them more often than I get them. Be expected to get out of my way when I have plans with my girlfriends, baby sit my grandson and be available when I need affection. Must buffer argument with 29 year old daughter that lives in my house. I am a early riser, in bed by ten, okay, nine some nights, up by 5:30. Gum chewer, since I quit smoking 6 years ago. Loves chocolate, see above ROUND reference. Would trade my last jewel for a bag of potato chips.
I could go on and on, but I have to get to work. Happy Thursday Everyone.

This may look like a ordinary wood frame that someone( me) has attempted to improve the look of this sad frame, by adding material. I love this frame. My aunt Toots ( don't you just love the name) gave this to me after I opened the shop. She said her boys had made it out of wood from the old chicken house. My first memory of the chicken house , was it being torn down. It had seen it's better days and brush had grown up in it and it was falling in. I was very young, alot of years ago. Who would have known I would get so excited about some wood from chicken house.

This is my grandmother house. There is a porch swing, and I am standing on the other side of the street, taking the picture. This is a very close community. Do you see the deck on the side of the house, we added this just a few years before this picture was taken. But that area is where we fought over who was going to sit on the ice cream freezer. It was always a place of honor. We had our folding lawn chairs, all sit in a circle, waiting for the cream to freeze.

This is my Hero, my husband Terry. He saved my life and the life of my daughter, Our daughter.
When we met I was a wild child, I had a baby and I was divorced, I was dating a lot. He was only 17 @ the time. I had just turn 20. I have to say I was a very young 20 year old. He was a very mature 17 year old. He was persistent, and wanted me to go out with him, I gave in and we dated off and on for a few months. Each night I would think this is our last date, I am going to break it off tomorrow. He was too young. Mother was concerned too. He ask if he could come to church with us and even ask my mother. He was a persistent bugger. We had dated about a year, when he ask me to marry him. He was still in high school. He was still too young. I did not answer right away, but my life was getting better and I knew he loved me, he showed it everyday. He loved Jessica and spent a lot of time with her. His family ( maybe not his mom as much as his dad) fell in love with Jessica and had her calling them papa and maw maw. I was still not sure, I had a problem trusting and Terry told me, that one day I would trust again and he could wait. He told me that he would never leave me and that he was going to marry me. I realized that he had loved me in a time that I did not deserve to be loved and he saved me and our daughter. We married June 11th, we will celebrate our 26 anniversary this year. Terry adopted Jessica after we were married and continues to keep me save each and everyday. My protector, My hero is my husband, Terry. I wish I could get him in those tights, one night.
