Family comes a calling........

As most of you know, my mom lives with Jeff and I now. This is a picture of her with her little doggie GiGi and me kneeling beside her.

This past week my mother-in-law, Laura, was here for a visit and below is a picture of her with my mom.

We went into town for a pageant that my husband's niece had her daughter in and I tagged along for the ride. My mother-in-law and my husbands Aunt Sula are in the picture below.

This lovely little pageant beauty is Saleena, she is the daughter of Dennis & Peggy. Peggy is my husband's cousin. Isn't she looking awesome?

This picture below is the family showing the 4th runner up trophy and crown that Miss Saleena won.

The beautiful young lady below is also a daughter of one of my husband's cousins. She is the daughter of Joey and Tammy. She is the lovely Miss Kelsey and she also took 4th runner up in her age group.

Take care everyone and we'll post again soon !

It is definitely Summer here.....

Out here in our neck of the woods we have several fruit trees. We did have blueberry bushes but they were so wrapped up with vines we had to cut them down. Hopefully they will come back. We are told they probably will at some point.

We don't know what kind of pears these are, but they are plentiful on the small tree we have in our yard. We are told they should be ripe around July some time.

The picture below shows our plums. Again, I have no idea what kind they are but they are ripening every day. So we pick a few here and there to eat. Very sweet with a large seed inside.

We have 4 trees that have this fruit on it. Once the plum turns red, pluck it off, before the squirrels do !

I am not sure what this fruit is below. I was thinking a crab-apple, but not sure. They have been this color about a month now and are hard as a rock. What do you do with these things ? Do I have to wait longer for them to ripen ? What the heck are they ??

The picture below was taken in our garage. Jeff built a canoe rack to hang the canoe on one of the side walls. One mountain bike is already hung, he still has the second one to do.

Also he has been constructing his work bench for some time and still organizing the garage. And after building the work bench he decided to put some drawers below it. They are HUGE and they are on rollers, so he gets some pretty heavy stuff in there !

Take care one and all, and see ya later,
