If a pictures worth a thousand words...

The critters are crazy around here lately. These ugly little things are flying (and biting) continually. I have more mosquito bites than I have ever had in my life. I really believe that the ones biting us are tiny and these, that we see so thick are minding their own business. Some people call these something other than mosquito's....can't remember what.



These ugly little guys are getting ready for winter. I just quit knocking down their webs and I now call them Halloween decorations.


A pictures of things that I bought while in Amish country. I didn't get a very good picture of this, but I'm too tired to take another.
I bought this because I do not have enough stuff to dust already. I love these berry vines and now I am trying to get SH to repaint my entire kitchen and dining room before I put this stuff out anywhere.

I fell in love with this sign a long time ago. I have found them in the past that I like better than this, but every shop that had this message that I wanted only had signs that looked like this one. I have wanted a sign with this message for years and finally decided to just buy it while I was in the mood to spend money, which I am not in the mood to do often.

I love this sign for many reasons...one, obviously is because I think this says everything about families. I also love the song by the same name that Brad Paisley sings...
"Two People Fell In Love"
A baby's born in the middle of the night in a local delivery room
They grab his feet, smack him till he cries he goes home the next afternoon
Fore you know it he's off to school and then he graduates in May
Goes out and gets a Ph.D. and then cures all sorts of things
Wins a Nobel Prize and saves a million different lives
The world's a better place for all he's done
It's funny when you think about the reason he's alive
It's all because two people fell in love
Right now at a picnic shelter down by Caney Creek
You'll find potato salad hot dogs and baked beans
The whole Wilson family's lined up fillin' their paper plates
They've drove or flown in here from fifteen different states
Well Stanley Wilson says that sixty years ago he knew
That Miss Emma Tucker was the one
Now five generations get together every June
All because two people fell in love
[1st Chorus]There ain't nothin' not affected When two hearts get connected
All that is, will be, or ever was
Every single choice we make Every breath we get to take
Is all because two people fell in love
Well, I recall a young man who was driftin' aimlessly
And a young waitress who seemed lonesome as could be
But in a little cafe right off of fourteenth avenue
With a whole lotta help from up above
We met and things sure turned around for me and you
And all because two people fell in love
[2nd Chorus]Baby, there ain't nothin' not affected When two hearts get connected
All that is, will be, or ever was
I'm glad your dad could not resist, Your mama's charms and you exist
All because two people fell in love
[Tag]You know, to me it's all so clear, Every one of us is here All because two people fell in love
A baby's born in the middle of the night in a local delivery room
They grab his feet, smack him till he cries he goes home the next afternoon

I have to have a sign with that saying; I have to cause it's made me cry. Really! I must have it. Is there a website from wherever you got it? All Because Two People Fell In Love...oh my! I've been trying to concentrate lately on the whole "live, laugh, love" thing, but I may have to paint something at CMM that says All Because Two People Fell in Love!

And that thing in the first picture? Around here, we call it the "Minnesota State Bird." I heard recently, though, that a bunch of them moved to Ohio due to better welfare benefits. HAHAHA!

I really, really hate bugs. I hate thinking of them, I hate seeing them, I hate everything about them. Lucky for you, you made up for the bug photos with that beautiful sign. I love the sign. I love the words to that song. (It is a song, isn't it?) I am going to find me a super cool sign like that on my trip.
