We made a wicker lamp for the bathroom out of a trashcan. I love the design it creates on the ceiling.

Also replaced the old white ceiling fan in the dining area with this fixture and put a new oak ceiling fan in the kitchen.

This was taken on our way to Asheville. It's a beautiful drive.

It was also our 27th anniversary!

Moose Cafe

8/12/2005 12:26:03 PM

We ate a delicious meal at the Moose Cafe and we felt like we were back in Alaska! The interior was decorated with Alaska/moose-type pictures. We loved it!

We renewed our wedding vows again this year, this time during a pot-luck supper at our church. It was a first, to be married next to the dessert table!

From the left: Kendra, Vicki and Barbara. We enjoyed having them here, just wish they could have stayed longer.

Kendra, Vicki and Ken (Ken is Jerry's brother) and Blackie keeping watch. Blackie liked the extra attention.

Doris and Betty

Our Iditarod friends, Doris and Betty, from Texas whom we met in Pigeon Forge, TN for a night. Now, is that confusing enough?!! We've met the nicest people all because of the Iditarod. We stayed in a cabin so we'd have a living room in which to visit.

Doris, Betty and Blackie. Blackie had to be the center of attention. He kept going in circles around the coffee table, under their legs.

Betty getting a goodnight hug from Barbara. We had a great visit with them.

Thought you might want to see a picture of our cabin. It was decorated beautifully.

Shelf in Bathroom

I love this shelf in the bathroom, but didn't realize the knobs actually turned! After hanging my towel on one, I got it off kilter.

Unusual Swing

We found this unusual swing outside a shop in Pigeon Forge, TN. I like the lanterns at the top on each side! Wonder what keeps the swing from rolling away?

Finches

8/21/2005 1:12:46 PM

Considering this picture (and the next) are taken through the screen from the living room, they came out pretty well, we think. We love to watch the finches.

Almost the same picture. But they're so cute, I had to put up 2 of them! Hey, I had a dozen!

Hummingbirds

One eating, and two watching the fourth one fly in.

Three hummingbirds on the feeder. We've gone through lots of suger this summer! There's a second feeder on the other end of the front porch, next to the finch feeder.

Two hummingbirds

8/21/2005 5:49:01 PM

Look closely and you'll see two hummingbirds flying in for some lunch.

Little Bear doesn't like to be left out if the rest of us are in the computer room, so I put her on the twin bed. It's too tall for her to jump up there by herself. Blackie was in his bed, which is under my desk. The quilt is very old--made either by my grandmother or great-grandmother on my mom's side. No fabric was wasted--even some of the patches are pieced to make a patch.

Blackie

8/21/2005 6:01:34 PM

I'm getting this look, "will you leave me alone so I can take my nap, please?" His bed is under my desk.

Two more hummingbirds in flight. This was taken from the porch, so no window to get in the way.

Sheep

8/31/2005 6:21:09 PM

Josh and Sandra bought 2 sheep, both which need to be sheared. I hope to be present when they do that!

It was starting to get dark, plus we had to use the zoom lens to get these two pictures. September's pictures will be better; got a picture a couple days ago of them up near our fence (it is 9/11 as I write this).

Floppy

8/23/2005 7:57:38 PM

I've named this baby Floppy, because of it's long floppy ears.
