Ok Kelly, It's Ready!

I just finished Kelly's Box
I think it came out as I expected
Hope she likes it!

What Am I Doing?

Why is EVERYONE asking
WHAT ARE YOU DOING TODAY?
Are you all afraid I am
sitting in my HOT [COLD] TUB
eating BON BON'S
and drinking CHAMPAGNE?

HAHAHAHA
But that is NOT a BAD IDEA!

So far I have...
1. Gone to the DUMP
2. Drove Ms. Elaine to the Mechanic's Garage
3. Got gas in my truck
4. Went to Pritchett's for Ms. Elaine
5. Put away ALL of the patio furniture before EARL comes
6. Started an ART PROJECT for Kelly

and it is only 2:15
Things still to do:
1. Go around and pick up and put away
anything that might get BLOWN
or FLOAT away in case of
EARL!

The plain ole cheese box
KELLY brought me to paint on

Just getting started

Just finishing up the base coat

I know KELLY reads my BLOG
So lets ask her
HOW DO YOU LIKE THE COLOR SO FAR...
KELLY???


Let's Meet EARL!

EARL will be the second HURRICANE
that I have experienced since I
have been living in BISHOPS HEAD

The first one was ERNESTO...
Whats up with the "E" names?

Looks like EARL will cause more concern
for the coast than it will for the BAY

The watermen say we will have
HIGH WINDS and TIDE
but nothing like ISABELLE that caused
SO MUCH damage to the BAY when it
came up the bay and pushed the water up
the BAY with it.

Thank Goodness Bill will be home
THURSDAY NIGHT to help me out...
HELP ME OUT with what???
I HOPE NOTHING!!!

He already took down the canopy
from the GAZEBO.

Here is the PREDICTION

Here he is NOW

Early BDAY Present

Bill gave me my early
BDAY PRESENT.
A new lounging dress
I really like it

But is does show you
EXACTLY where I lost my 15 pounds.

Look how little my legs are.
Bill and I cracked up when we saw
This picture

CLASSIC!!

GOOD TO KNOW

It I'd good to know there are MORE of you out there. FRANKIE, throw
those shoes away.

Bill is upset because BEFORE my repairs, his shoes would drain when
they got wet.

NO MORE!!

Take It Away

Take this Lemon dessert away
I am HOOKED!!!

That's A Lot of Crab

Another crab feast

Duct Tape Fix

Everyone knows that I can fix
Things with DUCT TAPE
and BUNGEE CORDS

Well Bill had a tear in his favorite
Boat shoes. A VERY OLD pair
of what Lisa calls
SHORT BUS SHOES!!!

So I got the DUCT TAPE and
Fixed his shoes.

Well... He wasn't impressed
Do you think he will go and
Buy a new pair now??

I can only hope
Do you think my plan worked?!

GOTCHA BILL!

Well, This SUCKS!

Hurricane Earl is
JUST TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT!

Holland Island PELICANS

This is the LAST ONE
from HOLLAND ISLAND!

Holland Island Part 2

Here are some OLD TIMEY pixs
of Holland Island

This is the same house and LAST HOUSE
still standing in the pixs I took today

A few years back

Interesting Map

The Island in better times

Holland Island

We went BOATING today
Something we haven't done for a long time
I packed a lunch and we went out to
HOLLAND ISLAND

BOATING
is different in the fact
that we do not stay in one place
and fish all day
HAHAHAHAHA!!

It is an island that once had quite a large community
But the BAY is eroding it away
Only one house still stands
A long with HUNDREDS of PELICANS!






Just coming up to the island

The LAST HOUSE

The last house over Bill's shoulder

The LAST HOUSE is sitting in the water
That is an EXCAVATOR sitting in the water
leftover from the last people trying to save the house

CRABBY CREEK

Just got back from my walk.
I spent the whole day outside
and even fell asleep on my
outside bed this afternoon
It was SUCH A NICE DAY!

I walked up to the creek
by Ms. Dora's house
like I usually do
and noticed the creek
was FILLED WITH CRABS!

All juveniles, BUT that is GOOD!
They are suppose to be in the creeks
getting BIGGER and FATTER

Can you see that female in the grass?
That's a GOOD SIGN!

Here are TWO just hanging around

They were all small
BUT there were A LOT!!

Just swimming around


Maybe this one

What Is More...

Beautiful than this??

OMG

Can you believe I got this antique out?
It actually belongs to Gail
I borrowed it a century ago and even moved it with me
She knows where it is

Anyway, when I was going to the wedding Lisa said my clothes were too
big for me. So I decided to try and fix some of my old standby outfits

Well Mrs Paull my home ec teacher would be Proud of me.

STILL HIGH TIDE

On the drive home
There still was HIGH TIDE on the road.

I miss the GIANT
It was do nice to shop in a modern clean grocery store.

HOME AGAIN

JUST A LITTLE TIDE

Just a little tide on the road
This morning

to leave home at 6:30.

Just A Putzin'

Here I go again
Got up and the weather was so cool
I figured i better get the grass cut
Did that!

Then I started putzin'!!

2 hours later I had moved the Cement planters I rescued from the dump.
Placed them under the RUSTY OLD ARBOR. Planted some of my mom's ground
cover and a vine to grow up the arbor. Hung a little sailboat bell
and...

WHA-LA
I CANT HELP MYSELF!!

AND AFTER

I painted it a high gloss white
The woven back looks so much better

What do you think
1960?
1970?

Have You Ever

Has anyone ever seen a
Chair like this one??

Susan found it for me at a
Yard sale

Looks like a
FRIED EGG CHAIR

I just cleaned it up and
Lightly sanded it
I might repaint the legs a
glossy white

Then what?
Where!
Dunno

I TRIED

I took another stab of
Painting on Glass

This time on an OLD WINDOW

WELL...
that didn't work

The paint is hard to work with
STICKY

THEN I THINK...
I tried to cover too much surface

I was going for the stain glass look
Maybe something with
Smaller Detailing

So, it got hung in the
OUTSIDE GALLERY
HAHAHA

I WILL TRY AGAIN.

The FIRST STEP

I am painting ANOTHER
DUMP CHAIR
for my daughter LISA

She has set up a small desk in the Guest Room
that BILL and I always stay in her new house
But they have no chair YET!

I told her I would TRY
and paint her a chair

I selected this chair because it has ARMS!
and a NICE WIDE SEAT!

First Step the FIRST COAT OF PAINT!
I will keep you posted
on my progress





OMG
THEY ARE BACK!!

After the BIG SNOW and
A VERY DRY SUMMER

NOTHING, I guess can really
Get rid of these SKEETERS!!

But it was GREAT while it lasted.

GREAT PAPAP PIXS!

Bill stopped to see the BOYS last week!
He said
"THEY ARE AMAZING!"


Benny Max, Bill and Brady

The Brady's lived across the street from us
on RED KILN COURT when we first moved
to the WASHINGTON DC area.

PATRICK was Eric's BEST FRIEND
Michael was the OLDEST and Christian the BABY

When NANCY BRADY returned to work
it was a NATURAL that the BRADY'S
would stay with me!

Christian was MY BABY!
I shared him on weekends with NANCY and RICK!

It was GREAT to see how the BOYS turned out
