Gone to the Dogs

Saturday, We took Miss Elly and Mitzie to meet Gilly and Courtney. I was a bit nervous. After all they are animals. All nerves were for nothing. They all had a great time.
It was fun to watch all the "dog behavior."

Happy Pink Saturday

Today, I thought I would share a member of my doll collection. Her name is "Easter Bonnet on it Adora Belle." She is sculpted by Marie Osmond and is 01051/10,000.

I love her dolls. I only collect the ones that speak to me. This doll is part of a collection that has a doll for each season. I can appreciate the time and work that goes into each doll. The craftsmanship is exceptional in my opinion.

Every time I look at one of these dolls...I think of that song...I am a little bit country...a little bit rock -n- roll. If you have no idea what I am referring to...You didn't watch " The Donny and Marie Show" like me. : )

Come With Me....

Comments are now Fixed! Yippee!!!!

I am a bit of a history nerd. I love Local History. So, come with me to the Pier located on Canandaigua Lake.

Here is Canandaigua Lake. It was about 7:30pm.

This is the end of the City Pier. I love to sit down and people watch. School is out and I like to come down here and play a little mental game I call "Tourist or Local." I try to figure out if the person is from here or visiting.

Check this Out.....First is the sign then is Squaw Island.

I hope you enjoyed our brief tour. Thanks to hubby for taking the pictures. GOOD JOB!!!
