It's been a fun summer and I will be sorry to see it end. Our tomatoes are late this year and are just now turning red. Soon I'll be having BLTs with vine ripened tomatoes!!!!! Oh and don't for forget the Best Foods Mayo!! We've spent time with family and good friends this summer what more can anyone ask for?
BBQ at the Banta's
Rock Show at Prineville and lunch at the Tastee Treet!!
Baby BBQ for our granddaughter who will be arriving anytime now!!

Hubby an I took a 3 week casting class this summer.
A beautiful outdoor wedding for Joe and his lovely bride Michelle.
This is a yummy piece of Hornitos Poppy Jasper I purchased in January of this year.
It has a wonderful color combination of burgundy matrix , rosy red and pale pink "poppies"
We have been waiting for a break in our weather to put on a new roof and new gutters and last week was beautiful here in Oregon! We even hit 70degrees a couple of days. As usual it was our spring teaser and we were back to rain and wind with much cooler temperature over the weekend and this week. The joke here in Oregon is it rains until July 5th and then out comes the sun.
This was the largest branch down in our yard. Some of our neighbors had larger branches and about 2 blocks away a large tree took out some power lines.
But our new roof and gutters were just fine!!!!!!!
This necklace is completely handcrafted by my friend Sue, and all I can say is WOW!!!!
Sue has an amazing "eye" for color and detail. She also quilts, makes dolls, does decorative painting, and is a Master Gardener. In her spare time (lol) she has a day job and on the weekends loves to fish with her hubby.
This smile was there to meet two little girls every night after work
This smile was there to walked two young brides down the isle
This smile was there to greet three grandbabies as they came into this world
This smile was there when he left our world too soon
