ends. Yesterday I had some errands and one was Barnes & Noble. I needed to buy a book by Montel Williams for my dear friend MaryBear Kicks the Dog's youngest daughter,Sha-we. She was recently diagnosed with MS & is taking it pretty hard. MB had to go out of town on a job-related training trip (as she does yearly) and Sha is staying here for 2 weeks. I wanted her to read the book & see how HE handles MS so she can feel more encouraged. Besides, BOTH of us love bookstores. And coffee. LOTS of coffee. I mean, a good couple of cappuccinos can't hurt, right? We got to B&N at 9 A.M. and look what we saw first thing.
|Do you see anything strange here?|
Number Two: My next door neighbor and cousin to my sweet lil' landlady has a massive backyard garden with so many veggies - primarily Asian ones. She brought these two huge things over & said, "These are good with chicken. Healthy. Cook them." Hmmmm. I THINK she called them a type of melon but my Chinese is as weak as her English. We both speak a bit of each other's languages, but ...! So, does anyone recognize these? HELP!
Finally, on an ENTIRELY different note - creating! I finished a new crown. This one will be for Barbara, one of the 4 B&N coffee ladies I've come to know over the past one and a half years. Her 80th birthday is November 5th & she loves flowers, birds, and very feminine things. Whatcha' think? Is it okay? Yeah, I KNOW! It's a 'bit' over-the-top, huh? Of course, consider the source. I am over-the-top! LOL! Here it is from the front & the inside.
And with these last photos, I guess I'll call it a night! Thanks for being patient with this tired old critter! LOVE YOU ALL!
