YarnBombed in Denver/#thursdaydoors

The photo below was the first part of a text from my eldest daughter.

I informed her that it appeared ‘yarn bombing’ was underway.

I’ve crocheted since the age of 9 and lots of my family and friends will send me photo/ideas of things they think I might want to crochet. These knob covers happen to be in a Denver brewery called “Just Like Grandma’s House”.

While they didn’t offer any g-free brews, the atmosphere grabbed her attention enough to text me some pics. She told me they had chairs like we used to have in our kitchen, cold couches (70’s-esque) and that this particular night they were doing cross stitch. They also had hard candy, board games and a tv with Atari. Above you may notice they had nicknacks and an 8-track tape collection. Player? Not sure. But you get the general idea of how much a throwback this place was trying to be. Very unique down memory lane. If only I wasn’t 2 states away šŸ™‚ Thank goodness she was only on vacation!

And the mandatory door insertion goes here.

I’m not a grandmother (someday-fingers crossed) but we all have a favorite one or someone we’ve considered our grandma. I would have loved to take mine on this walk down memory lane!

AThrowback/Thursday Doors

Digging up some old photosĀ this week for Thursday Doors. Circa 2011. The above directions come from RoadsideAmerica.com and has a good readĀ about a debate on where Daniel Boone’s actual remains are buried.

We had spent a Sunday looking at campsites in eastern Missouri and were on our way home when we stopped here at Daniel Boone’s home.

I think I just wanna camp here šŸ˜‰

This was pre-Thursday Doors and so the full door view is not available. Maybe a drive back is in my future (& possibly an actual tour).

It’s a pretty good jaunt up the hill to see the property. Dodging oncoming vehicles is a strong possibility depending on the time you arrive. I think you can tell that my youngest is going at a pretty good click in those flip flops just by her pose.

I did ask permission from one daughter before posting this one.

From a Couple Years Back/WPC

  • Replaced my old laptop.
  • Installed Word (time comsuming when they don’t let you buy a disk anymore)
  • Opened yet another email. I now have ???. Probably some floating around in cyberspace that are long forgotten.
  • And bookmarked sites again.Ā Going to have to try to relocate those A to Z blogs I visited and promised to Revisit this coming year.

So are the woes of a computer that goes berserk.

And IĀ StillĀ had to use the old dinosaur desktop-with-a-tower, slow-as-molasses computer to find these pictures.

There were Matching-Pajama Christmases, Proud High School moments and the Ā  Ā Busting-Your-Rear-Ends to Help Mom at craft shows.

After the book store2

Levitating/Wordpress Photo Challenge

Weight(less)

IMG_1126

Going down memory lane for this week’s photo challenge to a St.Louis Cardinals game in April of 2011. My youngest daughter’s class took a trip to see a game for some sort of incentive award. Can’t remember exactly, but apparently she was in the winner’s circle. Ron and I were able to tag along.

As a long-time fan of “Yadi”, we were snapping a few pics of him at bat. IMG_1155

Even a loyal Royals fan can appreciate the talent of Yadier Molina. He’s on my bucket list for autographs.

My highlight photo for this challenge is the levitating moment ofĀ the Atlanta Braves catcher Brian McCann.

Maybe McCann would autograph this one??

Cards won by the way……5 -3
