  11. horrible Hot betsy, and was a hrd day believe me:(

    ReplyDelete
  12. Sorry it was a hard day! :(

    I like to be cold better than hot, too! Not much you can do if you're hot. If you're cold, you can drink coffee, put on a sweater, take a hot bath...

    In a few months I'll be hot and you'll be cold! lol...

  14. Betsy, I think my mom used to make crab apple jelly, but I don't remember what it tasted like.

    Gloria, sorry you had a rough day, I'll try to blow a cool breeze your way from up here. :)

  15. Thanks Rebecca some days are hard and all we know dears:)

  16. They do look like little ornaments. I did not know you could eat crab apples, I thought you got sick if you ate them. Still in the 80's here and hope it cools down to the 70's pretty soon. Snow sounds very nice.

    God bless.

  17. We had temps in the teens today. brrrr.

  18. Silver ~ how did you know I got a new coat!? It's those darn cameras, isn't it! Oh dear.

    Rebecca ~ my crabapple jelly was very mild tasting..fruity, but hard to describe.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Paparazzi after you again Betsy? :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'll bet I'd shock the heck out of you if I sat here and actually described it, now wouldn't I?

    ReplyDelete
  21. @Rebecca: She means the hidden cameras I installed.

    ReplyDelete
  22. He thinks I can't recognize him in those shades. lol...

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hmmm, he looks pretty recognizable to me. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm not hiding from anyone. Maybe someday you'll spot me when you're running errands!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Should I cue the music for

    "I'll Be Watching You"

    or would that just be too creepy? :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Rebecca ~

    you mean, as in
    "every move you make..."

    lol....

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hey, I just had an idea! Betsy you could do an "I spotted Silver" post. Kind of like an Elvis sighting. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yes, that's the one. I know it's a kind of creepy song, but I like it--the song I mean--not the idea of someone with hidden cameras. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Betsy, should I tell Rebecca about Elvid?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Look at you getting all wise
    And without any pies
    True advice to live by though
    Except with the crummy snow
    You can still keep that in Ohio
    With your kitties lined all in a row..haha

    ReplyDelete
  31. Sting, right? Wow, it's been a while.

    but that song can REALLY get stuck in your head. We'd ALL be singing it tomorrow. And I'm running errands tomorrow. That would really be weird. hahaha...I'd do a double take at any silver haired men with goatees. lol....

    ReplyDelete
  32. I just had a mental picture of you swinging your purse at a sweet little old man with a goatee. hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  33. Alright, I'm curious, WHO is Elvid?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Pat
    I'm loving the snow
    so will leave it here below
    the border up there
    and keep it down here.
    Have four-wheel drive
    so I'll stay alive
    It's the other crazy drivers I must watch
    to keep them from sliding splish splosh.
    ha.

    Three cats came in to play
    and warm up a bit today.
    Was fun, too
    at my zoo.

  35. Betsy dont have idea of course Silver had cameras in your home?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Gloria ~ well, it's either that or he's hacked into my computer. ha. He just likes to tease. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. He probably bribes your kitties to tell him all the inside stories. :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Here's the full story on Elvid: http://silverfoxlair.blogspot.com/2010/08/elvid-sic-has-left-building-another.html

    ReplyDelete
  39. I don't know, I think Silver fell asleep, and forgot to tell me.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yeah those other drivers are the pain
    Stupid idiots can't stay in their own lane
    You have kitties coming in and out all the time these days
    Sure the parakeets wish they'd go to different bays

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ah Silver We want you tell the history:)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Go to the link I provided. There's the full story.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Silver, not a bad idea at that. You could wear yourself out being the star and the host though. :)

    ReplyDelete

  50. This is a great shot. You should watermard you photo's. They're so good, someone will swipe them. I think you live in Ohio. (I hope I'm right about that}. I'm married to an American and his family is from Milton Ohio. And I did my undergraduate work at Muskingum College in New Concord Ohio. I have so many great memories of that State. If I was to live Stateside permanently, it would be in Ohio.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Anne ~wow, thank you. Gee, I never thought of watermarking them. Maybe you're right. :) And I'm so glad you've been to Ohio. It is a lovely state. I love the full change of seasons we get...hot summers to cold, snowy winters and gorgeous falls. But then, you knew that. :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Ohio has the most diverse eco-system in the States and that's why I went to college there. The climate is almost exactly like Ireland and so is the terrain. Your state also did a marvelous job of protecting the Bald Eagle. You guys were instrumental in getting it off the endangered species list. Viva la Ohio!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Anne ~ and I have some Irish blood in me, too! :)

  54. Lovely words! Thanks! Take care
