As you can see Tropical Storm Fay stopped by for a visit. We lost about 4 big trees and several of the small trees blew over too. We will have to wait and see if they can be saved or not (the small ones, that is). The big trees are a total loss. We pulled a couple back up in hopes of getting one last crop off of them before they are removed. We got 9 plus inches of rain. The wind was blowing so hard at times, we know the gauge was unable to get a really accurate reading. Even the bushes around the house took a beating. We have had worse...much worse so we are very thankful.

The Package has learned to PATTY CAKE, she can wave and say BYE-BYE, and she can say POP-PA now. This little girl is a hoot and a half!!

Well there you have my monthly post.....sad but true.

Hi Tina! I'm was sooo happy you left a comment on my blog. I've missed talking to both you and your mom. It's good to hear you're back online and we can "visit" again.

If you get a chance, come on over to the Old Fashioned forum again. We're trying to keep it going but it's been kind of quiet lately.

Talk to you soon!

I just realized today that I didn't answer your question about the teacups. Yes, I'm still looking for them and only have August and December. Please email me and let me know what months you have: walraven@sympatico.ca
