Last posting on this blog for awhile!

packing,packing,unpacking repacking..............
We are going on a 3 week trip that will take us
through many different climates.
From steamy hot jungles to cold and possibly wet tundra.
From Santiago, Chile to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
From parrots to penguins.
Hence the packing issues.
I think ? I have finished this excercise
but we have 3 more days before we leave
if I want to repack ( nooooooooooo) one more time!
From here on out any blogging I will do will be on our
We are taking a cruise with a great group of people-
There are 15 of us characters that will be writing and
posting photos on that blog-so it should be quite
entertaining for all of you.
Adios amigos!

Bufo and two friends

It's a beautiful off and on sunny day and
it's my mother's birthday. She would be 87 today.
I think she sent these bandtailed pigeons to sit
on Bufo just for me.
Thanks Mom.

A quilt for Lonnie

I never have to look far to find another opportunity to make a quilt.
These babies just seem to show up!
This quilt is for a little 2 year old girl who is being adopted by a friend.
Welcome to Lonnie with all our good wishes for a happy and healthy childhood .
