How Many Eggplant Photos Can I Post???

 

image

It is so hot and humid here that I can’t breathe . . .

A little asthma coupled with cornfields on all sides of my home keeps me

captive until we get some weather relief . . .

 

image

Michael and I  picked this cute little eggplant trio and some cherry tomatoes . . .

He spent the afternoon finishing the mowing that I started earlier this week.

Aren’t they cute???

Their diminutive size reminds me of my Mom . . .

not that she was diminutive . . .

she just had to pick things before they were really ready to pick!!!

 

image

We always had those teeny tiny potatoes that you see now

being advertised as organic baby potatoes . . .

Not . . . she just couldn’t wait for them to get any larger!!!

Good memories ! ! !

That nice smokey effect on these photos . . .

My camera lens was fogged because it was so hot and humid . . .

I made these photos at 8 p.m. on my porch . . .

I never managed to get it completely unfogged.

I’m A Confirmed Thriftaholic . . .

. . .aka cheap!!!

I’ve been collecting flatware/silverware

for quite a few years and I have a lot of spoons.

 

image

I found this via Pinterest...it costs $750, what do you think???

I think I should go shopping for some more flatware/silverware.

Don’t you???

What a way to have a “good excuse” for thrift shopping!

“Elvis Has Left The Building”

When you live in a small rural community life can get

a little complicated and sometimes scary. 

Then your neighbors show up . . . and help you out.

image

Saturday night we attended a small community benefit for one of their

young men who had been hurt in a work accident.

Everyone volunteered their time and work... even ELVIS . . .and

 

image

he had a little sidekick  (Elvis trainee I think).

Look at that shiner ! ! !

It was great and we had a blast.

I’m sharing some of the photos I got.

image

This was held in the local volunteer fire station and yes,

that is a Christmas tree in the background,

I’m sure they were just getting ready a little early  :-) ! ! !

 

On a sidenote, this little community was completely destroyed

a couple of years ago by tornadoes.

Peeps, this is  The “Real” America!!!
