Day To Remember On Pink Saturday




Today on Pink Saturday, we are celebrating an achievement for me that has been a struggle at times. However, the blessings and pleasures have been worth it all. My three years at blogging fell on Beverly's Pink Saturday, combining the two. Since pinks are scarce on my post, go to http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog for some of the best.

APRIL 28, 2009 to APRIL 28, 2012


On April 28, 2009, I was introduced to Mr.Blog by Coloradolady. Blog and I courted awhile trying to learn more about each other. We decided we could make it work and got hitched. It has been frustrating with a lot of mistakes, ups and downs along the way. In spite of it all, today we are celebrating our three year anniversary. There have been times I wanted to run Blog off when he makes changes or updates things without telling me. Even though our three years have not been perfect, the good out weighs the bad.

We had 649 friends following along with us until Blog acted up again and we lost some of them. Blog said he did not do it. It was Google that took away our followers. I am not sure who the culprit was, but I was not happy about it.

We have manged to share 810 highlights from our life. During the three years, we have had 50,781 visitors from all over the world.

The very best thing that has come from our relationship, is the meeting and getting to know so many great people. I never realized how quickly you can reach someone completely across the world in just the touch of a button. It has been an amazing experience for me. You have all blessed me tremendously over these three years with all your support. I am at a loss to the right words to show my appreciation to all my blogging friends. I am excited to see what the next few years will bring. Thanks to all of you for helping me and Blog stick it out.


I am sorry to say, after Blog's latest stunt, a divorce is possible in the future. In fact, this will be the last post for a few days or FOREVER. Blog is forcing the change or else. If I fail in this endeavor(and I will without help), then my blogging days are over. In case that happens, I want you all to know blogging has been such a joy for me and making so many great friends. Blogging put a new lease on life far me, kept my mind active and learned so much. It is very hard far old dog to learn new tricks. Thanks to all of you far making my life so much better during these three years.

Children's Books Vintage Thursday #2

Today on Coloradolady I am sharing a few more of the vintage children's books. However, if they are not your interest, at http://coloradolady.blogspot.com you will find lots of things to enjoy on Vintage Thingies Thursday.
As mentioned in my first post, these books are all from an Indian Library in Oklahoma. After so many years, they discard the older ones. This one involves a happy little handcar who led a straight and narrow life on the railroads.




As you can see, this is a story of a little elephant that woke up one morning sick and a temperature of 512. That seems too high even for an elephant.


The story of the bears waking from a long sleep.

Outdoor Wesdnesday

May you enjoy the different Outdoor Wednesday sights with Susan. She brings us some of the best each week at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com.




Gone Wild Tuesday With MeMe

These are three of my flowers that have simple outdone themselves this year.


This is a Flowering Mock Orange plant that Coloradolady gave me several years ago. It was just a tiny plant when I got it. It never has done as well as this year. It has grown so big I have had to cut it back. It was loaded with little white blooms and when they fell off looked like it had snowed.


This is my precious rose bush I have had several years. It has never let me down in blooming. However, it went crazy this year.

This is called a Passion plant and it has really took off far the first time. Coloradolady also gave me this one. Hers died but you can see mine is doing very well. I have had to trim it back as well. It had hundreds of buds and more of these pretty flowers it has ever had. I love it.

Vintage Thingies Wash Day

Coloradolady and her Vintage Thingies Thursday friends invites you to join them for a great show today. They are waiting for you at http://coloradolady.blogspot.com.
This is the way some people washed their cloths. We used the old black cast iron pots.
Only way we had to dry our cloths. It was rather nice, as the sun and air makes them smell so good. Some people still have a cloths line, but most use a dryer.

And, then we ironed them in this fashion. I still have the iron, but certainly do not use it.

Tuesday With MeMe

Enjoy your day.

Sometimes even the animals have a hard time making the right decisions on what to eat. Most of us humans tend to make the wrong choices.

Vintage Children's Books

Today is children's day on Coloradolady's Vintage Thursday. However, you will find other things of interest at http://coloradolady.blogspot.com.


All these little books are very vintage if you will note the dates. They are all from the Indian Library in Tahelquah, Okla. I have several more to feature for those interested in these type books.
