o.k...I had a GREAT TIME!

O.K...... We had a Great Time...
I dragged my feet... Steph said she heard it in my voice... I really...really... wanted to stay home... but... I knew... if we re-scheduled...it would never happen... Once the first of the year hits...we are both, hitting the road running...and...running ....incredibly... Hard...
She has deadlines... for her Fabric Lines...and Quilt Shows... I have Antique Shows... and whatever else I need to do, to make ends meet.... it will be Fast, and Furious, after the New Year...
I have got to tell ya... I truly, had a Wonderful Time....
Steph is an Artist... and, I guess, in many ways... I am, too.... we really travel to the beat of a different drum... We are, I guess, in a way...Free Spirits... Gypsies... {Speaking of 'Gypsies'.... we ran into Anita! Iowa Junk Gypsies! Who would have thought! What a Great Surprise! She works, at my Iowa 'Happy Place!' The Light House Supper Club!!! I want her Job!!!! It was a joy, shooting the breeze with her!
Me...and Steph... What a Fun Time.... I'm so glad we went..... 


Steph's Great Hubby, Mark, gave this Wonderful Jewelry Box, to me, for Christmas... I LOVE IT!!! It's a Mad Hatter Thing! Amazing!
Mark also, put a candy thing, inside the box... hmmm.... Steph and I, couldn't quite figure it out....{it's a Reindeer!}

We had a little wine... and a Martini, or two... just me... Steph was being very good....{Me...well... I am kind of 'bad', every now, and then...}


Steph, and Anita... Oh Dear... The Fun Never Ends!




Ahhhh.... Eddie... He is quite the Jazz Man... He came, and sat with us... and we had a wonderful visit...He's a very Cool Cat.... He's playing Chicago, next month... oh my...
After such a sad, sad day... I'm so glad, I made myself get going....we had a Wonderful time! The Light House, is a very nice, little Vacation....Steph said, we should go there, every Season... Can't wait 'til Spring Break!!! We Love the Music... It just takes you back, to another place, and time....

You were right....! and...well..., pal, Anita said the same thing....I can fix up, now and then.... but... like the great line, in Gone With the Wind..."I'm still a Mule, in Horse Harness... and I ain't foolin' anybody"...{I live in flannel, and blue jeans....}...I always hate having my picture taken...a Martini, or two, softens the blow...{especially with Steph... oh dear....I really do feel like a Mule... standing next to her... oh my...}
Thanks again, Jan... You helped give me a little push...and I needed it...
My Love to ya!

Hey Looks like your chin is up a little higher now. My aunt just gave us all little notebooks with pictures of my dad in them. Gave us all a tearjerker for Christmas,. He was killed in a tractor accident about 25 years ago. They were from his childhood on up . Lovely present with lots of memories.

Hey Wanda...
What a Perfect Gift...so, so thughtful...I wish some of my Dad's family, and Mom's would share their photos...I have asked, over the years...to no avail... we had a fire, when I was 2 or 3...and all of our photos were lost....
I have images of them, on movie film... but...still can't bring myself to watch them...almost 24 years later...
I'm so glad you were blessed, with such an amazing, forever, memory...
My Love to You, and Yours...
