Wilmington, North Carolina

Deserving of a post all of its own.  Wilmington is a beautiful little city.  It was 90 degrees the day we were there.  We could not have asked for a better day.  I think the pictures say it all.  If you ever get the chance, go there.  It is well worth the trip.
Pretty nice, huh?

My Sunroom

A friend of mine recently gave me a dry sink that she was no longer using.
I decided it would be the perfect piece for my sunroom.
And so it was...
Now, if you will excuse me, I am going to put on my slippers and enjoy the view with this sweet little helper of mine :)
Have a great night.

It is the sound of peepers...
Don't they just lull you to sleep?
I think I will leave my windows open a crack and listen to their songs.
Good night, sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite.

Rochester Red Wings Home Opener

Against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees.
Standing room only.
Blue skies, sunshine, and temperatures in the 50s.
Doesn't get better than that.
Wait a minute...
Yeah, it does.
We won 7-6 bottom of the 12th :)
Good time!!!

Spring Fever Weekend

In anticipation of this upcoming weekend (temperatures in the high 60s, near 70 :), I made a fruit salad using what I had at hand.  No food reminds me more of spring/summer than this.  And, it is sooo good for you.   
Have you seen the recent studies on strawberries?  Click here to watch a segment that was featured on ABC News with Diane Sawyer.  Strawberries not only taste good, but are good for you too!!! 
Just ask your mother :)

Men and Power Tools

Equal one happy mother and wife (Dave was to the left in each of the photos)...
Which can, in turn, equate to one happy son and husband :)
It is an algebraic phenomenon...
So ladies - don't knock men and their power tools. 
The pluses outweigh the minuses ;)

Moonshine Anyone?

Dave and I have lived on this property for 25 years.  During that period of time, we have taken down on an A-frame, pulled out refrigerators, dismantled several outhouses, and tore off a portion of our house (which was about ready to fall off anyway).  There is one item on this property that I will never let him take down.
This is it...
The Front
The back
I think they made moonshine here.  How cool is that?  Why do I think they made moonshine here?  Let's look in the window and search for evidence that would support my theory...
The Window
The Evidence
Pressure gauges, smoke stacks, piping, jars...
No loot though.
Doesn't matter.  It's going to have to fall to the ground.  When it does, we will pick up the evidence, display it proudly in our barn, show it to our friends and as we sit around a bonfire, I will tell them the story of how it made its way to us. Then, we'll drink to red neck ways.
