Old Convertible


We had a visit from the peanut mobile last month.

 

Can anyone tell me what kind of car this one is?

Lehi Style


This not only shows three types of fences but a lovely entryway on one of the main streets of Lehi. I must have passed it a dozen times and never noticed.

If you want to see some spectacular fences, check out Good Fences.

Grandma's Shoes

 When  I was very little, all the Grandmas that I knew all walked around this world,in ugly grandma shoes. You  know the ones I speak of, those black clunky heeled kind? They  just looked so very awful that  it weighed upon my mind. For I knew when I grew old, I’d  have to wear those shoes! I’d  think of that, from time to time, it seemed like such bad news. Now,  I never was a rebel! I wore saddle shoes to school. Next came ballerinas,then  sandals, they were cool. Then  came spikes with pointed toes, then platforms, very tall. As each new fashion came, I wore them, one and all. But
always in the distance,looming  in my future, there, Was that awful pair of ugly shoes,the  kind that Grandmas wear.  

I eventually got married then  I became a Mom. Our  kids grew up and left, and
their children came along. I  knew I was a Grandma and  the time was drawing near when
those ugly, black, old lace-up shoes was  what I’d have to wear! How  would I do my gardening or take my morning hike? I couldn’t even think about how I  would ride my bike. But  fashions kept evolving, and one day I realized,that the shape of things to come was changing right before my eyes. For  now when I go shopping what  I see fills me with glee! In my jeans and Reeboks I’m  as comfy as can be. And I  look at all these teenage girls and  there upon their feet,are
those clunky, black, old Grandma shoes, And  they think they’re really neat!!!

This was given at a DUP Convention yesterday and it was so funny, I thought I'd share.

 This window is in the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers Museum in Salt Lake City.


My granddaughter won a gold fish. A Mason jar works just fine.

Drive thru


Picking up my prescriptions, I noticed what a lovely view I could see of our smaller mountains to the north.

A re-creation in miniature of stone hedge. Now there are two in Utah county.

40 Degree Drop in one Day


The wind tried to blow us away the other day.  It dropped from 73 degrees to 33 degrees in a matter of hours.  I was lucky, I only had a dusty wind storm but my neighbors to the west of me had a muddy wind storm.  Typical spring weather in Utah.

Spring Break


Here are two of the four that have kept me from blogging this last week. The whole family stayed at my house for 10 days.  The week before that I got all excited because I found out that my great grandmother from Poland had nine children and not just the four who came to America. I am almost done proofing my book but new information took hold of me and I've been back into researching my family full time. This was from a person who a few months ago said I was done.
