SO I wonder who decided to make EVERY snap in the world different? I must have at least 5 different tools to put on snaps with and even then, it's a little bit lucky if I have the right one. Has no one in the snap business ever heard of standardization?

SO I told you about the handy dandy automatic water bowl I have for the dogs outside. Well the hose started leaking so I went on the hunt for a new hose. Garden hoses were too big so Hubs suggested I take a lok at a washig machien water hose. Well lo and behold it was just right!

So, It's time once again for the Indoor yard Sale at our church. Oxford United Methodist Church, 202 East Main street Oxford Iowa-Saturday 7am-1pm. So look at all the donated stuff!
.Nice light fixtures-like new in box...
I'm not sure what this is. It's heavy-so probably lead crystal- and I think it's a cat...or maybe a pig, no it doesn't have a snout. and it looks like it should hold small things like sweetener packets......anyways.here it is!

I think the trend towards reusing, or "up-cycling" is a good thing.
I noticed my favorite Pickers have been wearing patched jeans in recent episodes.
And look you can get these at Nordstroms for 80 bucks! On sale!Le Skinny De Jeanne Jeans, Kittyhawk
I mend better than that!!

Anyways, It's good to know we're in style around here with patched jeans!

So, my employer (I work for Procter & Gamble) provides us with a day called deployment day. It's when they roll out the plans for the year ahead and try to generate some enthusiasm for work in general. You know, sing kum ba ya and hold hands...no not really. But they do allow part of the work day to go out to lunch with your work team and to do a team "bonding" event.
I had lunch with my team, and then for our team "bonding" we trekked out to the McBride Nature Area and visited the Raptor Center. I hadn't been out to the Raptor Center since Uber Son was a cub Scout! They've grown a little bit! But some of the same birds are still there. The Raptor Center houses birds that have been injured or are unable to survive in the wild. Many have broken wings or have been raised by humans (for some reason that I will NEVER understand) or have been permanently disabled.
Here are two of my Team members-Dave & Todd.We're providing evidence that we really did go bird watching!LOL!
McBride Raptor Center
We saw owls, hawks and a falcon too. We had beautiful weather and the walk from the parking area was just what we needed after a big lunch!
