Well the end is near.
For both July and Summer.
Hope this post finds you healthy and well.
Bob remains the same.
No worse. No better.
Time will decide it seems.
Back when we first started selling antiques,
I created these patriotic sheep.
Some 14 years ago.
I should have ironed this flag but did not
have time. Oh well.
My red, white and blue firkins and pantry box.
The banner on the wall is an antique.
In other news, the other day there was
a tornado warning for my moms small town.
I immediately called her house phone when I got the alert.
When I asked her if she was taking shelter,
she proceeds to tell me
"Well I was until the phone rang"
All I said after was "ok bye"
She called me back after she got the all clear.
We both laughed as I forgot she can
hear the towns tornado alarm as it is
only 2 blocks from her house.
No tornado this time.
However in the late 90's,
my brother called me on a Friday
late in the afternoon telling me one did
touch down in her town.
Since I was the closest kid to her house,
I told him I was on my way.
Grabbed clothes for me and the kids
and we were off.
Once I got into town, there were trees down
The police stopped me and asked me if I
was a resident.
I said yes, and he asked for my address.
I gave him my moms and he let me go through.
Once I got to my mom's her house was fine.
She had no power, but told me she
watched the tornado coming from the West.
Once it got close, she took shelter.
Fortunately it went back up
before hitting her street.
Towards the west is farmland and she
can see for miles.
Witnesses said it came back down
2 blocks east of her near Lake Huron
and touched down in the harbor.
Many boats damaged.
Thankfully no homes or loss of life.
Well off to the store.
Now that most of the Autumn goods
are on display
(no room in out tiny storage area)
[too much Christmas and Halloween in there]
Now I need to check in the Christmas items that arrived.
Patriotic Color Blessings. To All!
