Wordless Wednesday – time was

P1000776

Once alive with tourists, visitors enjoying a bit of history while touring the carefully tended gardens, and game park nearby.  This “car” now sits, empty. A relic days gone by.

NH discovering

IMG_2997

Hello on Tuesday.. Was bright and sunny here today, yet where I would be up and out of the house bright and early, I was slow in getting going.  Happens, I may have mentioned that while in NH I was suddenly hit with a flash of recognition.  I didn’t want to shop, or really look around. I had enough!  I’m sorry, for those of you who have had to pick yourselves of the floor, I assure you,  it really happened

Such things do happen.  Let’s face it, a book was written about the “strange events” that have been recorded to have happened, in the hills of NH. Shrouded Memories, True Stories from the White Mountains of New Hampshire, by Floyd W. Ramsey.

Will it last, who knows.  So far, so good, I ran errands yesterday and today, and was not tempted to browse, or “look around”.. I applied myself to what needed to be done, then came back home.   I do have some of my artwork on display  at  Raglan Art Walk 2017  in SL, I have participated for the last couple of years.  I do need to send out some invitations.

What you see here, is my darling Canaille (Portuguese Water Dog) watching her human “daddy” eating a sandwich while relaxing with his “notebook” after a day of driving his “lovely” wife around touring the wilds of NH.  You can see she is trained on his every move, I think, she believes, that if she waits it out, he will drop something.  LOL he never does, but she never gives up hope.

That is what life is all about isn’t it.  We need to live each moment, focused on what we are doing, appreciating the moment.  When we are “hit” with an “idea” or “inspiration” we should listen, take heed, recognize that it is a  “personal” message”

communication

When I saw this picture, I had to look twice, it was on a Pinterest feed, but you can see on it, it originally came from Facebook. Text was on it, you are seeing the photo exactly as it was sent to me.

Does this picture ring any bells for you?  Can you relate to this picture.  How long ago do you think this was?  I don’t think it was really all that long ago.  I do recall seeing old replays of television shows where people had to go to where-ever the phone was to answer it.  Often, there was only one phone to a household.

I do have a cell phone .. but confess to often forgetting it at home, or not having it where I can access it.  In fact, I prefer meeting up with a friend, and chatting in person. It is true with cell phones, and Skype, we can communicate with family, friends and do business using the internet or cell phones more conveniently.  But do I consider it an improvement on the quality of life?.

Any thoughts?

Good morning everyone, today is a church day, the sale is this week-end, therefore there is a lot of setting up to do to be prepared.  If you live anywhere in the area, please pass this information along,  The garage sale will be in the parking lot and the Boutique sale will be in the lower level of the church.  We have lots of “treasures” and “goodies” for you to discover.  This year, we have handmade one of a kind greeting cards that we are excited about.  Affordable and fun.  Lots of retro and diva jewelry, rings, necklaces, earrings, accessorize you look, you will have lots to choose from.

Yesterday’s visit to Montreal was very successful, as you know I’m working on Holiday cars for a group that gives crafted cards to shut ins, and seniors without families.    To be ready for the holiday months,  artist and crafters have begun working already on their projects.

The gathering, the preparations for the Sale, is a fun way to recycle and find ways to raise money, but more then that, it allows us to share the day with each and every visitor, interacting and enjoying the seek and find that happens at these events.

There is something enduring about older vehicles

when you opened a door or closed one

there was a “feel” to it, that doesn’t come with the automobiles of today.
