All the jewels aren't at the shop!

My family had a treasure of an evening last night. We got to sit down for dinner with "e" and her family. For those that may not know Evonne lost her left leg, the same way and the same day as my husband, Bob. This was the first time Bob & Evonne had met. (Our families go way back from hanging out if the Intensive Care waiting room!). Evonne has recovered mightily and just glows with her thankfulness of still being on this earth with her family. It was wonderful to see everyone's high spirits and grateful hearts. We don't know what God has in store for Bob or Evonne but it must be mighty big! Thanks to all of you who have prayed for healing. Our families are strong and confident of the future and know that we wouldn't be doing as well with out all the support and love that you have shown us. We are humbled by your friendship. Enjoy your day!

Lewes here we come!

Just got back from a week's vacation! What an eventful trip. Our buddies Bruce and Pete helped Bob devise a prototype"Sand Walker" to get from the parking lot and back if the free Lions Club beach wheelchair is not available. It is a workout for Bob but the walker worked great. Not only could Bob get around on top of the sand but he could get IN the water and float and frolic with the kids like old times. We gobbled down too much local corn (is there such a thing?), salty snacks and wine so back to exercise routine now that we are home. We were blessed with lots of friends and relatives visiting so lots of laughing and kid noise coming out of the house. I am SURE the neighbors are a wee bit happy we are gone! :o) Thanks to David for jumpstarting the riding mower and taking care of the lawn PLUS all of the other maintainence he did. Thanks to Dave we have counters repaired, sinks that don't wobble and he and Pete installed a monsterously long banister so Bob can walk up and down the stairs without danger of flipping over the rail!

Also did some fun antiquing for the store. Funky hats (Vogue says they are back in for fall!) and yummy, fluffy pieces of chenille including an unusual peacock bedspread. I am getting all of the pieces inventoried and priced so they should be ready for August's FIRSTFriday celebration. Remember we are having an Open House 5-8pm on Friday, August 3rd. Libations and yummies galore as well as fun people, local artists and new art and ornaments. Come visit!
