Kitty, Teddy, Bunny, Squirrel Feedsack ~ What a coup! (3) fantastic finds all in one day & in perfect condition. These are supposedly around 1940s ... I AM SO EXCITED!!! The feedsacks replaced barrels for shipping farm & food items. Originally feedsacks were plain linen colored w/advertising in ink the company's logo & product. Approximately c. 1925 colored feedsacks came into play, still stamped in ink the advertising. I found it very interesting that the manuf. even created patterns for dolls, animals & quilt blocks onto the 'sacks ... I found (2) most recently.

This is our Joshua ... the other 'joy of our life', driving his Poppy (Harold) home. I got such a kick out of watching Joshua drive the car ... I am terrible with stick shifts & Joshua just took right to it. I love this car ... it is such fun on sunny days to zip around in it ... we love just taking off on a country road & going out to breakfast, the breeze whipping thru our hair, the sun warming us. What fun we have. Years ago this car was just sitting in a neighbors yard, deteriorating. A friend bought it, pushed it down into our driveway & later moved it to his home ... later when he decided to move he offered the car to us, & we snapped it up. Harold never could get a 'kink' out of it to run, so we towed it to our new home, & eventually sold it to our neighbor (his house in background). Our neighbor literally took the entire car apart, restored it, painted it & taunted me by driving it 'around the block' with his grandkids on nice days. One day as Harold was at Dulles Airport going west, I got the call that the car was FOR SALE! I told our neighbor to HOLD THAT CAR & finally reached Harold to tell him I had bought the car. We truly enjoy our fun times in this little 'bird'.

~ WHY ~
I questioned 'WHY?!', He continued to listen. I turned a deaf ear, He spoke softly. I struggled & floundered, He continued to hold me up. I closed my eyes, He touched my heart. I looked for answers, He was patient. I begged for strength to endure, He gave me love. (Written by Marydon Ford)

I have been married to my beloved hubby FOREVER, we have survived many bumps & bruises along the way. God has carried us thru the heavy loads of life.
We have (4) children, angel Sean will remain 3 & 1/2 yrs. forever. I loved being a Mother, I simply adore being a Mimi to (2) & Mini to (1), our adorable ones. Hubby says they are the rewards for not killing our kids. Chuckle.
We love to travel. Holland is our favorite country ... we have enjoyed our many visits there ... it beckons still.
We are imperfect, have strayed from the path of God, but restored our footings ... we bow before Him humbly.
