HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMERICA

It's almost the Fourth of July and the celebrations begin!  It's hot here. Very hot. And it's not August yet. And we may have a hurricaney Fourth. There's a storm sitting in the Carribbean and it looks-----suspicious. We'll see.

We're still dealing with that nasty oil spill. It really looks like things are just standing still. In the meantime, Louisiana and the other coastal states are hurting. If we can go to the moon, it seems like someone could come up with an answer to this problem--if they wanted to.

I've been stitching, but finishing very few things. I'm keeping up with the LHN ornies, so here is the latest finish:


I finished it in the materials called for. I'm really enjoying these little goodies!

I need to get serious now. My thoughts and prayers go to Mizmollye in the loss of her son, Jake. There is nothing worse than losing a child. But Mollye is strong and has SO much faith. She will teach some of us-especially me- some lessons. I think of her often during the day. I hope she is able to feel all the thoughts of love that come to her from all of us.

Please read her tribute to Jake on her blog, Mizmollye's Place. The link is to the right of my blog. I truly wish I could have known him: he's just 3 months older than my John. Such wonderful words coming from his Mom.

Wonderful stitching. And yes that spill is something else. Wonder if all our orts would soak it up?
I am so sorry for your friend. Such a sad loss.

I love the new look of your blog! That oil spill is just such an awful thing...I'd save my orts to soak it up.

Beautiful ornament. You did a great job with the finishing.

I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your friend.

Yeah, Happy Fourth. I think some of the excitement around here has been dampened.

A charter boat captain from Orange Beach took his life yesterday morning. Another casualty. I didn't know him, but I feel for his family.

Jimmy Buffet plans a free concert next week, and tickets (for crowd control) became available at 10:00yesterday morning. They gave out almost immediately, and minutes later they were on E-Bay for $100 and more.

Never mind, I'm talking too much.I should put this on my own blog.

I've finally started blogging about our cruise.

Hope the storm doesn't hit the gulf coast.
