How did the turtle cross the road?

Well, if you must know, a crazy, City lady snatched him up from ultimate doom

to relocate him to his new, forever home! Yes, driving home from Bonham

where I had gone to view a bunch of  “Old Photos from the 1940’s”  that a lady in

an antique store had called me about I spotted Mr. Turtle on the small, 2 laned road,

a different road than the one I took going to Bonham, a new adventure, I thought!

I spotted something appearing roundish on the road ahead, a turtle I thought,

for sure it must be… Yes , of course it was, and when i passed I could see he was

not yet harmed. Now, a normal country girl would probably just drive right on by.

But no, not City Girl I had to rescue him of his certain fate. So, turning around and

perching my car ever so carefully on the edge of the grassy roadside, with it’s steep

decline, I hoped I wouldn’t flip over … I guess I should have been more concerned

with the approaching auto coming from around the curve in the road! I waited

and then made my descent upon Mr. Turtle. Yes, he was untouched and landed

on the floorboard of my passenger side. Now all we had to do was find a

creek nearby. Driving along, I saw plenty of small creeks, but nowhere else to park.

Then as fate would have it, I saw my favorite sign, Cemetery with an arrow pointing

down this road. So, what could be more perfect a road to explore, with a cemetery

and a home for Mr. Turtle?  Just a few hundred feet down the road, I spotted the

most beautiful field with several lakes. A home also sat across the pond with this

fabulous view. “This is it!”, I thought, a perfect abode for Mr. Turtle. I got him out

and deposited him just inside the fence hoping he too could see the pond ahead.

Maybe a bit too much to ask of one sitting down on the ground and who knows

what kind of vision they have but there was a little creek down the hill as well

so I hoped he would be pleased. Then I drove on down the road looking for

the sign of the cemetery. Never seeing a sign or graves, I spotted a young gal

jogging of all things, in the country? Do people really jog out here in the country?

Anyway, I finally stopped to see if she would talk to me and she pointed me

in the direction of the cemetery. You can see it in the image above, overgrown,

old markers and no fence to surround the property. Had I really been adventurous,

I may have climbed into the brush to read the markers but that might cause a snake

bite of some kind which City Girl is not at all interested in entertaining! I guess I

could tell you of my next adventure this past week, trying to rescue a dying horse

in a field but that story may go untold…

Go to the Country and What do you see? Ei Ei O…

On the way to Farmersville to check out some property
the drive caught my eye all along the way!

Fast and Furious… My Day! trip to Johnson City, Tx!

Oh Bahamas —How I love Thee…!

I wish I could return to Harbour Island in the Bahamas, but
instead I headed to the Emerald Coast last week with my friend,
Elfriede. Sadly, so did Tropical Storm Karen, so the waters were
not the aquamarine blue I had been dreaming of… but it was
still beautiful just the same! I loved staying at Watercolor Beach

and had fun traveling along 30A taking photos at the beaches along
the way, Seaside, Watercolor, Alys and Rosemary…

Who doesn’t get excited about beautiful Paper?


Or how can one little city get any better? Well, just find yet another fabulous

little shop in McKinney that’s how! Several weeks ago, after hours, I spotted

a new sign in town. I popped over to peek in the window and was blown away

by what appeared to be another great find in McKinney! The decor,

the printing, the furniture and displays, everything made me want to come

back for a peekwhen open. Last week my designer friend Sandra and I headed

up to check them out! Missing Q Press is the name of the store, and Jason

the owner knows his stuff! What a delightful little place to come shop and visit.

Why, you might just walk away with all kinds of hand printed, fabulous

little books, cards, tags or invitations. Did I mention that they print wonderful

custom invites for weddings, parties, showers, or just about any event you can

think of! Better check to make sure they are open before heading up but

you can for sure find someone there on Fridayor Saturday.

You won’t be disappointed! The Artistic ability of Letterpress!

Off to Canton! but it’s not 1st Monday…

I had a business trip on Saturday to Canton, and having gone
there for about 5 years every first Monday to set up my booth
when I had my children’s clothing company, I was anxious to
see what was new in town and all around the fair grounds.
Of course, I found the nicest shop in town, which is there
transplanted from Big D, to a quieter way of life, right on
the square! I also ran into dear old friends, whose booth is
in the Pavillions, Sunday House, Don and Lee! Lunch at the corner
bakery with their squash soup which was as good as any fine restaurant
in Dallas! What a fun day, now if it had only been 1st Monday…?
