newsflash - aaron rodgers sighting at elkhorn flea market!

sorry for the dark photo but aaron was trying to keep
a low profile while visiting 
the elkhorn flea market sunday.
(hey, lot's of people were wearing packer jerseys
sunday so he fit right in)
he wasn't there too long, 
as he had a game to get to after all.
took just a few pics,
it was hot and i was getting over 
the only cold i 
will have this fall, winter so i left early.....bummer.

love these guys,
the caddy is a great movie.

this one is for you george,

see what's behind the candy scale,
my $2 peg board find.
i wasn't going to have it out in public,
just use it for photo shoots as i mentioned to my husband........
but i couldn't resist and brought it out
to try for halloween, fall decorating and i love it.
 and gosh who knows maybe it will stick around for 
new years.........

candy anyone?

we'll i tried

back in the day when my family lived in california
we would take road trips to wisconsin
to visit my mom's side of the family.
(one trip was in a red vw bug - all 4 of us - 
thru the desert 
over the mountains, farmlands etc. to wisconsin) 

one of my favorite memories 
was eating watermelon pickles at the family picnics. 
i wrote down my grandma's recipe many many years ago
and this year i finally tried it!
and guess what - they tasted terrible!
not sure what i did but they did not taste like the
watermelon pickles i remember.

oh well, at least the jars sealed and no explosions happened. 

it was a good learning experience.
 hopefully i won't wait as long to try again.
