Ahhh...The Barefooted Queen...in What Cheer...

Had a great day....Shopping....but...mostly visiting...with friends.... I wore my 'Larry the Cable Guy'.....Flannel...with the sleeves cut off....rolled up blue jeans...and was barefooted...most of the day...{blew out the flip flops...oh dear...} It was Great seeing everyone...Lynn...Lea...Chery...Sheryl...David...Jeff...Dan....Dale...Aletha...Stephanie...George....Cathie ...Bill...{this girls art}....Sheri....Gary....and...a Very Sweet Lady Bug! Cindy!.....Oh Yeah...Sweet, Pat....and some new folk, as well...a Lovely Day...{I forgot Barb H. Elaine and Erica! {Sisters Garden} They just had a Beautiful Wedding, at the Store....I can't Wait to see the Images!}
A Late day....But...I found an Amazing mid 1800's Cupboard....that simply would not let me walk away....{really}I know I sound crazy...when I say this....but...I gotta tell ya...some of these old cupboards... truly won't let me walk away....{actually...I walked away...twice.... but kept coming back....the price, was holding my hands.... finally...I said....to the owner..."I Love this Old Cupboard....I will offer this.... then...I'll walk away.... It's what I can afford...and the best I can do....at least...I did my best...and will understand, if it's not good enough..."...Turns out....my offer was good enough....and I thanked them.... The Cupboard is home....
I had Angels riding with me....at the end of the day...I bought a Gnarly old Rocker.... after driving about 60 miles...I realized...the rocker had moved....and probably did.....a long way back.....I stopped the truck...just short of home....to find the rocker...held by NOTHING....except.a hook...at the end of a ratchet strap.....hooked onto a piece of the old seat....it was a Miracle....and...I had just...knocked on wood....about never losing anything, on a load....with David Lehman...just before I took off....from What Cheer...{I'm so glad I knocked on that 2x4....oh my....}
I will have images in the Morn....
Steph invited me for a Gin and Tonic....after supper....and now...I'm ready to Sleep...
Hope You All Head to What Cheer this Weekend! It Was Great Fun!
Love to Ya....

Barefoot? I hope your tetanus immunization in up-to-date!

You have never lost anything out of the truck? Either a very good loader or very lucky. . . I once lost an English dolly tub full of lobster trap buoys on the N.Y. turnpike. Didn't know it for who knows how many miles and it had my SOLD sticker with name, phone # on it. I had fears of learning it had gone through a windshield.
I could tell many more stories. . .
Have fun this weekend!

Ahhh....nope...I strap...and tie....and when I think it's 'good'....I tie it better... When I looked in my side mirror....and noticed the old rocker...was at the rear of the bed...and not at the front....where I had strapped it....only a mile from home...I pulled over....and nearly had a heart attack... that little hook....holding on to that little board....was no less than an Angel's hand...wow...
