good morning! I was going to post yesterday, but i had a mini- emergency. My eyeglasses broke and couldn't be repaired. So i had to try and find some new ones. I looked online and found the Lenscrafters,but i couldn't book an appt online for yesterday. I figured they were all booked. So i went to 4 different places to try and get an exam, so i could run to the Lenscrafters. They were able to get me in at noon. a close call, ,but i made it in time. Only to have to wait. By the time i got out of there with the new specs, it was almost 4pm. I gotta say i am liking my new glasses cause they stay on much better with 2 arms.
Here are a few pictures of the New Perry Hotel. Thi hotel is listed on the registry of historic buildings. Or however it is called. the picture of the outside of the hotel is the oldest part. it was rebuilt early in the last century. They have some awesome rooms there, and i was able to get a tour before they opened for business. Just cause i walked in and asked. I figured they were already open,as there were cars there. believe me, i am not usually that bold. the interior shot is of the hotel in back of the New Perry Hotel, and was built in the 50's. As you can see they still have the original decorations. It is way cool the way the hotel works. you have an outside door, and then on the inside there are rooms to the left and right. so a family could rent the 2 rooms and spill out into both rooms and still have privacy as the outsidedoor would keep people out. Gosh, my words arent doing the hotel justice. guess you will have to come down and see it for yourself. hope you all have a wonderful day.

My granddaughter's birthday is friday, the 13th. she will be 6 years old. that makes me feel very old. we celebrated with her when she was down for Christmas. she went to target and picked out what she wanted for her birthday. some new jewelery, a new headband and a clutch (lime green!) she called tonight, and when i asked her if she had worn the jewelery, she said no, but she had worn the headband. she is having a Mario themed party at her dad's house, with a pinata. wish i could see that.

Hello. How is everyone? I say that like i have lots of followers. I don't, casue i only gave out this blog address to my sister Judy. One day i will give it to more people. It has been wonderful the past few days. Friday we (hubby and I) went to the zoo Atlanta. It isn't a big zoo, but it is awesome. I have never heard a gorilla talk (roar, or whatever it is they do)til yesterday. There were elephants that were eating bamboo. Just a lot of activity. maybe we were lucky, or maybe it is like that most of the time. I cant wait to go back. we stopped at the cemetatry down the road. unfortunately i didn't have the camera, so no pics. Guess i will have to go again. And get zoo and cemetary pictures.
I wanted to share some of my recent finds. I am fascinated by old photos. what is the story behind them. Up in Ohio, there are lots of old pics. I was able to be choosy and not pay a lot. some i got for a quarter. Here they are harded to come by. So i guess that is why the price is so much higher. Now i feel like i have gotten a bargain if i can get one for a dollar. I will let you make up your own stories on these two picture. someday i will do something with them,but not now.

yesterday while i was at the antique mall they had new mags for a dollar. and here was a somerset home. the one that is out at the news stands now. a 15 dollar mag for a dollar. Ahhhh, but i had to look to make sure there was at least one project. and there was a cute photo frame that looked easy to do. it had some old sheet music on it, and i went back and found the 2 for a dollar sheet music i had seen earlier. yeah for me. now i have to do the project. Of course i am currently reading a flea market style magazine. dont know what i will do out of that one. have a wonderful day.
