Good morning. Tis cool and quite cloudy this morning. We have a bit of rain and maybe winds coming soon thanks to the summer storms, I think. I'll have to check with the weather channel in a little while. Right now, I'm watching Law And Order, which is a bit more interesting.
Friday morning, Deanne and I went to the shooting range for a bit of practice. Deanne did super well. I didn't do so bad either. My shoulder makes it a bit difficult, but I can still hit the bulls eye. I used Deanne's gun for a few shots, and I really like it. Pogo says that he'll get me one for a combination birthday/Christmas gift if I want one. Hmmm, I'll have to think about that. (He's so good to me!!) Here's my target from Friday's practice.
Yesterday, Pogo and I went shopping at the gun shop and I bought a magazine loader for my gun. As soon as I figure out how it works, I'll be able to practice loading the magazine. Pogo behaved so well in the gun shop that he was invited back whenever he wants to go. He's quite an impressive and well behaved little fellow.
When we left there, we went looking for a little jewelry shop that the isntructor's brother owns in a nearby town. Thank goodness for the GPS in my car. Without it, we'd have never found the little shop. We had a pleasant chat with the owner, and we'll go back tomorrow so that I can leave one of my rings for repair and an appraisal. I have another ring that needs the band repaired, so I may also take that one with me to drop off. I'll be needing a new appraisal for that ring too.
Before we headed for home, we stopped into a new pet supply store where we picked up a couple new shirts and some new doggie food for Pogo. He hasn't tried the shirts on yet, but last night he did eat a plateful of the new doggie food. Wow!! We also picked up a bag of soft doggie treats, and Pogo actually ate a piece. Wowsie! Will wonders never cease! This is the doggie treat.
I got a new catalogue in the mail Saturday, so I spent some enjoyable time looking through it. I found a few things that we could use so I ordered them on-line. There was a beautiful bedspread and shams that Audrey liked so they are being sent to her. I found a few things that will be gifts, so they will come here and go into the holiday tote.
When I was last at Walmart, I picked up a new pattern book. This one is for crochet kitchen cloths. I think I'll try the one with the scrubby in the corner. After my other projects are finished, of course. Here's a photo of the little pattern book, and the scrubby dish cloth.
Evenings, I did a bit of crocheting. I finished a dolly dress in "Grape Fizz" yarn, and now I'm working on one in "Wildflowers" yarn. When I finish this last dress, I'll take a couple photos. The colors are scrumptious. I'm not sure why I'm making so many of these dolly dresses, but I like making them so I'm a happy little camper. (I'm sure they will all find a new home)
Today I have a new quick page for you. Now that the hurricane has gone by, and Florida can start to mend and rebuild, I thought that this might be a good page for your vacation photos. I did call to see how much damage my timeshare condo got, and the news was good. Aside from losing electric power, there was very little damage from the storm. Now I can look forward to going there next March.
Here is your download link:
Now I'm going to make a fresh cup of coffee and watch a bit of TV. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
