Turning 55

Well I hit the speed limit today! 52 more to go! It did not hurt a bit. I still was able to play dolls and we took a dip in the pool. I had my favorite meal, fish and cucumbers with strawberry cake for dessert!

We can't all be winners

When I visited Costa Rica, I took many wonderful photos of the wildlife in the rain forests. I just recently learned of a contest to design a reusable bag for Kroger so I used a couple of those pictures to make entries. Please visit and have all your friends visit too. Here are direct links to my bags. You can vote for each every day. What fun it would be to see my own bag design for sale in the store!

The kitties are gone!

Kitties have gone to their forever homes! I miss them even though they were never mine...

PLEASE spay and neuter your pets!

A new doll for me

An online friend is selling on ebay to raise money for adoption funds. I was the winner of this darling porcelain head. It came with the wig. I ordered a body from dollsparts and now have a whole doll of the Rosette size! I think she is sweet. I also purchased the dress and sweater set from the same friend. Isn't she just an adorable dolly? She still has to tell me her name....

You can help too, visit and see what you can buy!

Please spay and neuter your pets

Once again spring is here and with it comes a new batch of abandoned kitties. I am fostering these two and have found permanent homes for them when they are old enough. It is so sad that every year so many cats and dogs are destroyed because of the carelessness of humans. Well these two will not be having any babies of their own.

Letter from a cat!

Last evening when I checked my mail, I had a little card that was from my friend Zoom the cat. I just met Zoom on Thursday. Pretty nice cat but apparently the smell of my own kitties on me was too much. After holding and petting Zoom, I suddenly became a bite victim. LOL I think it was a very funny situation as zoom is not a cat that would normally bite anyone. I should have paid more attention to that welcoming hiss!

Well the card is too cute, zoom being sorry for behavior, and sending sincere apologies. There is a bonus with the card! It has a tiny knit piece with tiny knitting needles on the front. My friend Ginny W will get these for learning to knit along with me.

My Kitties.

Both of my kitties are rescue cats.

One is named Ottis Redding. We got him from an aide at the vet. She found him by the dumpster and bottle fed him until he was old enough to eat on his own. His eyes were not even open yet! She named him Gus for fungus! I wanted his new name to sound enough like his old name so as not to confuse him. So Ottis. And he has red points, so Redding.

Tomorrow Walter is the name of the other one. Walter, 'cause I like the name. and Tomorrow because I can hug on him and tell him everything will be all right, Tomorrow.

My dear husband and me.

This is a picture of my husband Bill in front of a store in Gruene near New Braunfuls, TX on our 22 anniversary. We had a wonderful time. Above that is me by a tree (that I can't ID, comment if you can :) ) in front of Gruene Hall. Yes, Ginny W and Kramer are there. What fun this little tourist trap is.

Ginny's beau Kramer

Ginny has an admirer named Kramer. He follows her like a puppy in love. He is a big fan of the KC Royals. He is a real penny pincher and saves all his money to impress his love. (He carries it with him in his backpack, because he does not trust the banks).

Don't leave Ginny out!

My favorite doll of course is my travel doll, Ginny WINTHMN. She has got to be the center of attention in all things dolly and some things not dolly! She is very well traveled. Has been as far from home as Costa Rica, and to many places all over the USA.

Loving Daisy

Don't want Daisyette left out. She is Bleu's BFF and they share clothes , shoes and toys.

Feeling Bleue

OK. I have joined the yahoo group for Bleuette Doll People. So many nice folks there. I like my online dolly friends! Here is my Bleuette! She was made by a friend I met online too. I really like this doll. Sylvia did a wonderful job. All the way down to the handmade shoes!

Starting Fresh

I am still not convinced I know what I am doing with these blogs. But I am going to try to make a comment everyday or so and keep it going.
