Here you will always find the American flag

waving and the American eagle flying.

When you finally accept that it's OK not to have answers

and it's OK not to be perfect,

you realize that feeling confused

is a normal part of what it is to be a human being.

Accept the challenge, and reach for the brass ring.

Oh my goodness! Quite the mess of filing

cabinets. It does possibly look like fire may

have destroyed some of this, or just terrible

rusting away.

Not a good brand for a washing machine such

as this one, or maybe in its time, it was much

easier. Would love to know what year this

was manufactured.

Not real sure what kind of recipe this is. Appears

it was made on the stove top being it is in a

skillet. All I know is I took one look at it and

thought I really needed to share.

One thought possibly. Is

Christmas over!? I can't play

in the tree anymore?

How clever is this?

What a neat idea to decorate a lamp.

What a neat room. Love the grandfather

clock and the decorated tree.

And a cute kitten doing only

what comes natural.
