Why am I thinking of the 70’s today? Maybe I miss the simple times. Maybe I need more oxygen to the brain. Do you remember where you were or what you were doing during the 70’s?
The Grape Ape was a completely mindless piece of entertainment. Back then, I loved him. Now, I think the theme song could possibly cause a brain hemorrhage.
Droopy! A canine classic. He was the happiest dog around, right?
Fun wear from the 70’s!
This was one of my favorite Tees.
Don’t forget the shoes!
Platform shoes! The wearable weapons.
And the big bells!
What about Bell Bottoms? Some were way out there!
Music! This is a TRIP! Loving some 70’s sounds!
This post was inspired by a dented mind and the fact that I just don’t get the cartoons that my kids watch, the choices they make in the clothing department or the music they
are always plugged into enjoy. And it’s ok.
I encourage their creative differences and force them to go shopping. When it comes to the ear buds we have developed a communication plan. The plan is sort of a combination of sign language, charades (airline traffic controller), and a little hand to head contact! It works for us!So what moves you today? What’s your flavor?

Easy as Pie Ice Cream Cake
Making an ice cream cake at home is very simple. These easy to follow directions will have you enjoying a cool and refreshing treat very soon!
September 1 - Today is Emma M. Nut Day (real name;couldn't have made it up. Poor child!) See for yourself. Emma was the first female telephone operator for the Bell Telephone Company. Before Nut made her first connection the lines were managed by teenage boys. We all know what has happened to our friendly and rude phone operators. -----Ring!!! What city?....What listing? I'm sorry I'm not sure I got that...What city? Automated operators and answering services DRIVE ME MAD!
September 11: Make Your Bed Day. Really! That's a relief, whew!! I'm not going to make another bed until that day. I want it to be a real special day at our house! Do they make a card for this day? Maybe a wall banner? Wait...I don't want to know.
September 30: National Mud Pack Day. Ahhh! This sounds like a nice treat. Now to decide - go to the spa or make your own. Hmm. I'd pick the spa. I do make my own facial mask occasionally. It's comes in a shell, is kept in the fridge and is always handy. A fresh egg. Beat the egg white, apply it to face and let it dry. With a warm towel wash face and enjoy! A source for make your own facials can be found here.
Note to self: Putting off making one particular bed (not calling anyone out) in this household could possibly yield the required amount of sand needed to make at least one beauty treatment! Smile, I love freebies!
September is a month to plan or tighten up plans for some. What will we do for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas? Christmas is in three months...yes, count them, WOW! Plan: Make lists.
You can countdown to Christmas here and email Santa! Fun!
Enjoy September while it last! Now, where did I put those stuffing recipes?

The SOTB trip is just one of the day trips we took this summer. Visits to places that require one tank of gas and a picnic are one of our favorite treats. Those hokey small town festivals, crafts fairs and bazaars are other day trips I like and
While at SOTB we roamed through the many gift shops checking out all of the border items. If you’re in need of a snazzy looking sombrero then this is the place for you. There are even matching ones for your pet! After shopping, we enjoyed some time in the arcade. We all like to play air hockey and Skee-ball and the competition gets heated at times. We then had a lovely lunch at The Sombrero Restaurant. The food was delicious with large portions and the beverages were very cool and refreshing as the temperature was close to 100 degrees on the day of our trip.
Next time we’ll check out the Reptile Lagoon and make it to the top of the big, red sombrero!

Let's eat cake!
I'm the luckiest, and at the same time the most cursed, girl for having married a man with a insatiable sweet tooth! My husband will say, "Did you know tomorrow is President's Day? Can we have cake?" or, "Did you know that five years ago we ate lunch for the first time at Fat Joe's. You were wearing your favorite color, green. Can we have cake?" So, you get the point any day is cake day in his world.
His latest request, and even this one threw me, was for an oil spill cake. A what? The husband says, "You know, a cake with oil spilling out and over the side." Sure, I reply. I'm sure I've seen that one before! NOT! He has OD on news and information floating around on this greasy topic and that's reason enough to eat cake! Anyway, I attempted to please him, even if it was only with a box of cake mix and canned icing. He liked it. He (with the help of two greedy kids and yours truly) ate it. It's all gone.
Here is the photo documentation of the unfortunate but delectable OIL SPILL CAKE!

This is me playing around with color! I know many of you have colored something similar as a child. :) Well, this is just one of the ways I like to start a picture. Here, it just happens that I'm painting with my mouse! I also do this when using colored pencil and acrylics.
Here I start with a crazy paint picture! I flip it a bunch and then I find the treasure that's hidden there waiting for me to unlock it!
This is the what I found in the crazy paint picture. Can you see the vases or vessels?
Vessels Of Three
Vessel: a container (as a cask, bottle, kettle, cup, or bowl) for holding something .
2 Corinthians, 4:7 - But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

This huge granite structure is located in Elberton, Ga. in farm country! Elberton, the "Granite Capital Of The World", showcases a great example of stone works in this monument. More stimulating information on granite, it's use and history awaits at Elberton Granite Museum. Some of the oldest, largest and most amazing headstones can be found in Elberton County.The best headstone I saw was a replica of a tree.

Here's a peek at the latest progress of my TreeA art project. I know it may not stand out, but there has been change. I've worked on this for some time now. Little by little this tree is growing! Art is great therapy for what ails you!
