The thing that is very hard for me to find is jeans long enough for me and not stretch as they do not go back to the size and the way that they fit after washing and drip drying them. I was told by a Manager at Kohl's that my Gloria Vanderbilt's are made all over the place except the USA. Today I was told by a Manager at J C Penney's that all of the jeans are now made in Shri Lanka, Egypt, Mexico, Omad, etc., none in the USA. The quality is terrible and not many brands to choose from. She and my husband found a few pair and I bought one after trying them on, to see how these work out for me. What ever happened to good old USA made denim jeans?? We did a bit more shopping at the Mall and headed home.
My husband decided to take the country roads home. The sky was so beautiful that
we turned right on a road for me to take some photos.
Little did we know that there would be an
extraordinary donkey and sheep,
all obviously well taken care of.
It was so muddy between the road and the fence
that I could not get closer and probably just as well

On Christmas Eve, my nephew arrived
and soon after fell fast asleep.
We ate dinner and let him sleep.
My nephew took a big bite out of his
with one front permanent tooth, so cute.
Then they were on their way.
Christmas Day, we exchanged our gifts
and since we were
having no company,
we spent Christmas Day relaxing.

My good friend Carol, surprised me with
this beautifully crocheted jacket that she
made and gave to me, this past weekend.
I love it.
She is so talented as she also made for me
the beautiful silver heart shaped necklace
with a paw print that I am wearing,
in memory of my 18 year old cat
that passed away last year.
She can be located at her silver website
which also links you to her Blogs
Thank you so much Carol, for the surprise and
the wonderful Friendship we have.

IT IS SAXOPHONE DAY
SUCH GREAT MEMORIES OF HIGH SCHOOL
AND MY SON PLAYING TENOR SAXOPHONE
IN MARCHING AND JAZZ BAND
HE CONTINUES TO PLAY IN A JAZZ BAND TODAY
When : Always November 6th
Saxophone Day is today. The Saxophone is a classical woodwind instrument. It is an essential instrument in jazz bands, symphonic bands, marching bands and more. It's only fitting that this great instrument has a day of recognition all to its own.
The Saxophone was invented around 1840. It was created by Adolphe Sax, a Belgian musical instrument maker. The sax is made of brass.
Adophe Sax invented 8 types of saxophones: Sopranino, Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Baritone, Bass, Contrabass, and Subcontrabass. The first Saxophone ever created was the Bass Saxophone. A 9th type of Saxophone, the Soprillo Saxophone, was invented in 2004. It is the smallest Saxophone.
Some famous Saxophone Players (Alphabetical order):
- John Coltrane
- Stan Getz
- Coleman Randolph Hawkins "Hawk"
- James Moody
- Charlie "The Bird" Parker
- Lester Prez Young
Happy Saxophone Day!!!

My Pineapple Sage is in bloom already.
We have had hummingbirds coming by
to get some nectar from the flowers.
It was early to see this as
I bought this plant last year and
decided to cut it back late in the season.
Getting the hang of this particular plant
and enjoying it so much as Pineapple
is a favorite of mine.
Rub the leaves between your fingers
and you smell fresh Pineapple.
