A Favorite Appliance

Do you have a favorite appliance? My friend just repaired the pin that holds the head onto the body. It had worked its way out so the head wobbled when being used. I was so pleased it could be fixed as this Kitchen Aid mixer was a gift from my dad in 1986. It’s been a reliable workhorse in several kitchens where we’ve lived. A lot of birthday cakes and batches of cookies have been produced with it. And when I realized how happy I was it was fixed, I decided it’s my favorite appliance (with my toaster I received for my 50th birthday a close second).

Sunset at the Swim-meet

It was almost nine pm when the sun was setting, getting to the longest day of light in a couple of weeks . The family had been at the guest pool since one pm for dive team warm ups. I arrived at three. Headed to the car at 9:15.

Start Them Early – Guest Blog

Guest Blog photo shot, taken by Grandson Charlie, who’ll turn six on the 25th. Sunday afternoon I arrived for a visit and we were in the back seat while his mom drove. He asked if he could use my phone to take pictures. I deleted the close up ones of me but thought this shot taken from his car window was a good one.

Balloon Bunny On Highland Avenue

I was driving up Bunker Hill , turned right onto Highland and someone was snapping a photo of this display. Of course I pulled over to the curb, rolled down my window, snd did the same.
