Since I have no energy or time to create I thought I would post pictures of the fun we had on the Fourth of July! After walking the parade in Spicer for the Legion Tim and I participated in the boat parade on our friends lake. New theme this year! Gilligan's Island! What Fun!!
(Click on the pictures to view larger!)
Gilligan, Ginger, Mary Ann, the Skipper and the Professor!

here's everyone,
including the Millionaire and his wife
....Lovie and Thurston!

..... the Zimmer's boat....all patriotic!!

The parade watchers.....

My dh soaking the floaters!!! Ha!

I think we counted 30+ people on this moving float!
What a blast!! We even played the Gilligan's Island theme song!(Now we are sick of it!)
Hope we have some more gorgeous summer weather this weekend....

Hip Hop Hangover...Recovery Mode!

This simple card was a tough one to make.....let me explain! Last Tuesday I had my ear surgery(this post explains everything!)!! The recovery has not been fun. Dizzy barely explains it. Four meds, even Valium for the dizziness! But I can tell the surgery worked, I'm hearing a lot more with my right ear even with the packing still in. And I thought I would be crafting a lot during my recuperation...HA! I can't even look down with out feeling like I may pass out!! So I worked my way through this card which is for my dear MIL who happened to have had surgery on her wrist the same day as I did. She had a fall in her yard picking up twigs out of her beautiful flower gardens! So she may see this before I get it in the mail today....we love you mom, and hope you have a speedy recovery!!
