Frederick

Happy Hump Day!!!!

I have been stitching on Frederick


This was then.....

This is now...
25 years later


I do believe we are like wine, getting better with age, lol

We had a great dinner out with the kids. We wouldn't have celebrated it without them. There is way to much down time now that they are older and doing their own things. We went to Stone Eagle to eat. This photo shows the limestone eagle carved in 1935 in Germany.

Dan had this delivered to me

Edible Arrangments. The hearts are pineapple, chocolate covered strawberries, grapes and way over priced, lol

Thanks for the comments and e-mails, it's such a joy to read them. Thanks for stopping by, See ya soon!

A really lovely pic of you both. I think we all look better with age, i cringe at some of my older photos.
A great gift, never seen an edible arrangement before.
Fred is looking good too.
