Welcome to Rednesday! It's good to see you all here this week! May has been a cloudy, rainy, cool month here - it's usually always the best month of the year. But, yesterday when I was checking the weather report for the week, I noticed that it would be around 80F/27C all week. With all the moisture you know humidity abounds, too! So I called the groomer's to make Calico her yearly appointment for a hair cut and, luckily, they had first thing this morning available. Just in time! If I can get her to pose for me, I'll take a pic to show you. Meanwhile, . . .
Mister picked up this Red Rock Cola bottle a while ago, and it's a perfect companion for a broken Bridal Wreath branch.
There's a new cat in town. An antique cat, to be precise! I stopped in there today and I love it! I told the woman there that I'm ready to move right in! I took a few pics on my cell phone but, can I find an adapter cord around the house to fit my phone? Noooo! So I'll have to go back sometime with my real camera - it's just about 1/2 mile from the Middle School! :)
I was dismayed to find the place a bit pricey, but picked up a few smaller items. This cute kid-sized slotted spoon ($3) and a pretty, pretty powder tin ($8). The bottom of the tin says, "This soft, fragrant powder is one of the important toilet essentials of the truly dainty woman." Well, I ain't exactly dainty, but I love the tin!
The veterans groups in the town beside mine, Holliston, MA, puts up posters and flags for fallen soldiers from the Iraq/Afghanistan wars. They're attached to telephone poles on Route 16, which runs through the center of the town (which has 3 or 4 antique stores and a general store - just thought I'd mention that!). They do this for Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
A few days ago I noticed three British flags, and am very proud that the veterans honor others' fallen and not just our own.
