It’s Saturday again, Wow the days are going by too fast. Beverly has compiled her list of Pinkies for today, so be sure you go to How Sweet the Sound and check it out. Thanks Beverly we appreciate all your hard work.
While on our vacation in Virginia, we visited a little shop , Something Different, and met the nicest lady. She made a lot of the things in her shop. We found this beautiful fish she made from sea glass. I could just see it hanging in the window of my sun room at the lake.

happiness and nostalgic memories to those who choose
