Friends are Good...

Hello...Well...I am having a great day. I received a surprise...Don't you love surprises? The UPS man delivered a parcel from my good friends in California. I was so excited while I was opening it as  these pals have really good taste. Imagine my delight when I saw this awesome toy.  It is amazing that this set remained in tact. The Mother of the child that played with this must have had a large beach bag. I want to go make a sand castle now...Oh...that would mean a bikini...maybe I will hang it in my sewing room instead.

Since I am an ardent fan of tin lithography I thought I would gather a few. It is so fun to display old toys with these old tins. It is like having an excuse to buy more toys.

He so enjoys getting a ride in this little buggy...he would be bored just sitting on a shelf. Monkeys don't like to sit still.

 Whooo doesn't like a comfortable little tin cup to nest in with a friend? Plus they are serenaded by this handsome Basso Profundo.

See how fun tins are? Now you have an excuse to buy display pieces.

So to Jami, Janis, Debbee and Carolyn...Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this treasure. I will think of our fun times when I look at my new toy.

Have silly "Friends with good taste are good" fun,   Jody

May Your Doodles be Dandy...

Hello...It is a good day to be a proud American. Here are a few parade participants. I hope they are wearing comfortable shoes.

Here is our honored Grand Marshall for our Fourth of July Parade. He will proudly ride in a shiny red convertible.

After the parade there are many activities that are available for our pleasure. The Movie House is a good alternative as they serve tasty movie snacks, have cool air conditioning and plus it is entertaining. How good is that?

If you have a boat it is a good day to take to the high seas. Maybe you will even find a mermaid. Wow, that would be a treat.

Picnics are fun. Find a scenic spot in a grassy park, bring a basket full of treats and enjoy the fresh air. A note of caution...beware of the hungry little buggers...they love this holiday also...it is like gigantic buffet for them.

A day of hanging around the house is a holiday also. You can catch up on the household errands. A day in the garden with freshly laundered clothes flying in the gentle breeze is a satisfying feeling.

Many of us will go to our town squares for fireworks and live music. We will stand for our national anthem..."The Star Spangled Banner." I usually tear up, so I bring a hankie just in case. There is nothing better than singing this with your friends, family and community.

Dancing in the moonlight...it doesn't get any better than that.

Oh my goodness...after a holiday a good night's sleep is welcome. I hope that your day is a holiday.

A note of caution...don't put firecrackers in your pockets...you will thank me later.

Have a silly "Macaroni Salad" fun day,   Jody
