Oh well I will make this a short post because I have chores to do . High ho high ho it is off to work I go ...so have a wonderful night .

another photo I found while looking ....

Here is a photo I found while looking for another thing in the closet . I was looking at this photo and it brought a subject to mind . How there is no date on this photo and I m always wondering why people were not more conscious of writing dates on photos way back when so they could look back and say hey remember when ? also add the peoples names that were in the photo please because one day we are all going to join the Lord in Heaven and some of us left behind wont know who was in the picture nor their names . Leave a legacy for your kids and write the names of their grandparents , great aunts and uncles etc so the kids at least know somewhat of where they came from .....If anyone has any idea of how old this photograph might be please let me know because there is no date on it nor the peoples names . I found this photo in a junk pile in a thrift store with a lot more photos all black and whites and I thought wow how awesome .Okay readers have an awesome day or evening , May the Good Lord watch over you and yours . take care .

A promise I made to a friend

Now it took me a  few days to remember (geeze I'm getting old LOL) that I had promised to post a picture when I found it . This was a conversation I had with my good friend Limner over at Oh just write me and if you have not checked out her blog yet please do so , she is a true artist and an all around awesome woman a real powerhouse mind you .... Okay back to what I was trying to do before I got off track . This is a picture I promised to post for her because it looked very much like one she had posted earlier and I told her I would post it when I found it and low and behold I had to look for something else in the closet and came across the album that this was in . So without further adieu here is the photo and enjoy . May the Good Lord watch over you and yours my dear readers .

Someone just reminded me of elephants and elephants remember everything LOL ...

I for one happen to love elephants . Not many people know it is one of my passions . These are some old elephants some of them are from the 1940s and 1950s and the big orange one is a hummel aka goebel which is the name hummel used to go by in Germany . Please google if you want to know more about hummel or goebel . some of these are bone china which you don't find much of anymore . I love elephants because I think that they are by nature gentle unless provoked by human ignorance and I did mean ignorance .I don't go to circuses  much anymore because I find it disturbing that these magnificent creatures are kept in captivity at all and many die horrible deaths .Think about that please next time you visit a circus or take your kids to one . I just wanted to share this with my readers . May the good Lord watch over you and yours .

I really dislike writing bad reviews on a product , trust me I really do

Now I am talking about the platinum preppy pens that I recently ordered and received . I ordered two in different nibs just to see how I liked them and oh no I don't . I don't like them at all . To be honest my cheap jinhao x750 writes so much better than these preppys . I cannot imagine a fellow fountain pen lover liking these preppys that much compared to other pens . The jinhaos glide over paper any paper but not these . They should have the title "crappy " instead of preppy attached to them .Yes folks that is how much I dislike them . I will stick with my cheap jinhao x750 model thank you . If this is what America is turning out in the way of products folks we are all doomed . Yes , get that I highly dislike these preppys . I wish I could return them but it would cost more to return them than it is to keep them . Well take care all and I wish everyone well .

Not nice Mr. Lester Holt of NBC fame , not nice at all

Now several months ago I wrote to Lester Holt , the anchor of the NBC nightly news broadcast in response to a story he did about letter writing being a lost art . Well I never received a response from him at all and I thought him very rude and can imagine what he would do if a child wrote to him ? Would it have made a difference ? , who knows . But I am here to say that letter writing is not a lost art and the letter did include some references for Mr . Holt to see . I even put my distinctive touch of mail art on it , for all of us mail artists to be thought of . I am so angry to say the least that some people just don't have the time to write back after the person who wrote the letter took the time to do so . Now I know some of you will say that those people are so busy ,well aren't we all these days ? I still find time to write . I guess it is just a matter of how your prioritize matters in your life . So I will leave it at that and should Lester Holt be advised that this blog does mention him , I would be more than happy to debate him at any time regarding the so called lost art of letter writing indeed . Well that is all for today folks , enjoy your day .
