Day Trip

We stop by on our way to Missouri on a quest to find Great Aunt Minnie: to see Frank and Cloody they are getting ready to move to Texas. They have lived in the Westminster Village for over 10 years. That is how we met, we had both lived in the Memphis Tn area. Frank dug up me the beautiful pink and yellow Iris. Going to miss them very much. The white iris was given to me by the nice lady that helped us find Minnie. ( after I ask if she would let me have it.) The Bennie was put back by my asking, and he said no come on, she said come back by and I will dig one up.. The Bennie said no again. So off we went. He said how could you ask for that Lady's for her flower. Well-----
We had found Minnie and her son . Looked up and the nice lady drove up and said I want you to have the Iris. ( I told The Bennie we like to share our flowers. ) So I have named then Frank the yellow one and Cloody the pink and the white is Minnie. I told the nice lady I was going to call it Minnie. This is Great Aunt Minnie 1884 to 1959

This is in a different cemetery of a baby that was born in 1908 and a home made stone now 102 years old.

This is the new marker for baby Charles. His niece had it made for him.

It was a good day.

Refrigerator Art

Yesterday I pray no bad people saw my address that I posted. It was deleted, Thank you for calling me on my dumbness thing yet. So here is some of the cute things on my fridge that have been given to me. My friend went to Hawaii and this is what I got. Mavi is not on my fridge he lives on my file cabinet.

She made up for it by giving me these darling hat and shoes.
My butterfly's came from trips I made. The Bee Happy came from Hocking Hills Garden

The cup of tea came from Friendship Tea and the Bloom and Inspire came from Hocking Hills Garden the other two came from a trip I made.
Thank you blogger friends I think of how much your friendship means to me when I look at them.

Today in 1969

Best Actress Oscar went to Barbara Streisand for Funny Girl:
She and Katharine Hepburn of The Lion in Winter received 3,030 votes each so it was a tie.

Katharine Hepburn was a no show at the April 14 1969 ceremony Awards. So emotional Barbara Streisand stole the moment.

We had a visit

from one of the baby Rabbits: this is the fence line around the hay field.
The big Oak has leaves and the sky is blue

My poor little Camellia looks shabby but these buds held on through snow, hail, cold rain all winter.

The Hosta is back strong.

We were sure the Clematis was lost , look how it is coming back

This is what is up and growing in my yard.

Just To Good

to me, The Bennie got me the white Rose:
It is a hybrid Tea Rose call Pope John Paul 11. The generously petaled blooms have a fresh citrus fragrance. Ten percent of this rose's net sales benefit the poor of sub-Saharan Africa, one of the late Pontiff's closest concerns.

Seed Catalogues

Ah, never blooms so red the rose

As in the garden pages glows,

Never crops so free from pest

As on page 20 and the rest.

And all the beauties we'll be growing

Blossom in catalogues without our hoeing!

Cake Pie

" Chickens In The Road" had this Lemon cake pie on her site for Easter. I made this for The Bennie and he sure did like it.
I was thinking it may be good with chocolate and it was. The cake is on top and the pie on the bottom.How to make Lemon cake pie
1: cup sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, separated
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon peel, grated
1 cup milk
one unbaked single-pie shell (I used the deep pie shell)
Combine sugar, flour, butter, and egg yolks in a mixing bowl. Beat. The mixture will be a little crumbly at this point. Add lemon juice, grated peel, and milk.
Beat again. Beat egg whites till soft peaks from. Fold into mixture. Pour filling into prepared pie shell.
Bake at 350-degrees for 40-45 minutes (or until set-do the toothpick test!). Cool. Chill to store.
To make the chocolate (leave out the lemon juice and peel ) add 1 cup melted chocolate chips.
This is sooo good!

Empty Tomb

Who so ever believes in the son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the son will not see life, for God's wrath remains on him. John 3:36
Low in the Grave He lay, Jesus my Savior! Waiting the coming day,
Jesus my Lord! Up from the grave He a rose, with a might triumph o'er his foes; He a rose a victor from the dark do- main, And He lives for ever with His saints to reign. He a rose! He a rose! Hallelujah! Christ a rose!

Easter Sunday

1947 , left to right my sister's best friend Shirley until the end of her life. That is me in the middle and they tormented me for life. I always tried to go with them every where. They told me they would give me a nickle if I would stay in the yard. Up the street they went ( I didn't stay put) I saw them talking to old mean Jimmy Snodgrass and I went and told mother. There was pay back. My sister was 4 years older then me.
Enlarge to see our outfits that came from the Sears catalog only on Easter . Mother made all of our school dress.

Today in History

on this day in 1860, the first Pony Express mail, traveling by horse and rider relay teams, simultaneously leaves St Joseph Missouri, and Sacramento, California.
Ten days later on April 13, the west bound rider and mail packet completed the approximately 1,800 miles journey and arrived in Sacramento beating the east bound packet's arrival in St Joseph by two days.
