My Poppa and Granny have/had these old tapes and I remember one was a black and white and it was called the Keystone Cops (I think), and there was no sound, or if there was it was just music. But the cops were chasing the bad guys (it was a man and a lady) and the cops are half falling off the car, and the car stalls on the train tracks and they pull it in half, it is funny, and it probably runs maybe 15 minutes I don't know. I just remember that at the end, I think Poppa would turn it off quick, cause it was like melting in the projector as it was showing the credits, cause you could see it on the screen.
Why am I talking about this? Well it reminds me of what is happening in my neighbors yard, he has the 2 Stooges working for him. Curly (envision ZZ Top – the long gray beard), and Larry (a bit younger, and I think he may be Curly's understudy – heaven help us) So anyway, I think it is going on 3 weeks now that they started building this block fence. Now I have never and will never build a block fence, but I am almost certain they are not doing it right. The neighbor says they have never built one before but they needed the money. Jeff said perhaps they are making a career of it. OK then, now Curly will mix up the cement, and he will walk back and forth 10 times with his little trowel full of cement to where he needs it. They have the posts built all around, and now they are filling them in with the actual wall, but it seems like they start some here then they move over there and do some on another spot. I wonder if they just work where the shade lands? It is AZ ya know…blistering hot.
Now most of the work seems to happen at night, they use these 2 bright lights on poles and work like that, can you build a block fence in the dark? How can you see if it is level? Wouldn't you use a level? How could you see that little blob of oil or whatever is in the level to show it is level? One day I am afraid I am gonna wake up, and when I take Toby out to go potty (that is how I am seeing all this – I aint Gladys Kravitz and being all nosy) but I am afraid I will go out and Curly is gonna have his beard cemented into the wall, and Larry has hit the road cause Curly told him to go home early (by 1am), and he would just stay to add a few more blocks. Have you ever seen the faces people put on trees? The eyes, and noses and mouths? Yeah well this will be the new fad, a block fence with a beard…I mean heck they had to cut him out of there right?
I hope the plumber we have coming today isn't Moe. Yuck! Yuck! Yuck! Doink! Ow my eye!!!
So yesterday the Trilogy Scrapbook Club came and made their make n takes for their day out. They only had a couple hours cause they had a busy day. I think it was the quickest class I had in a long time. This was a private class that they requested, and I had a blast.
Each table is a different make n take, sometimes I have people move around, and sometimes it works where I can just move the buckets when the tables are done.
That is how we did it today. I prefer that for them so they dont have to move, and if someone is making notes on their blotter pad, or is a little messier then the next person, they don't lose their notes, and or the person next does not have snail all over their card, or arm.
This is the table that forgot their official name tags, and they had to resort to writing their name on a sticker and sticking it on their shirt. The other tables were teasing them, until 3 out of the 5 at the table won door prizes…ha!
Say "Hi" to: Pat, Kathy, Marilyn, Ruth & Kay
Say "Howdee" to: Nancy, Maureen D, Maureen Y, and Faye
We had one lady that rides on one of those cool skooters, and they all took care of her and we got her inside without any trouble, leaving was quicker as we had her ride through the house and out the front door.
Say "What's Up" to: Lois, Ellie, Linda, Sandi and Penny
Oh and just so you put a face to past emails, Lois (blue t-shirt) is the lady behind some of the recipes I have shared, remember the pecan praline muffins? I'm still walking a few of those off. Ellie, is THE Ellie that sends me awesome cards that I have shared with you recently, and she said she would start putting recipes on the back.
I just want to thank all of them for coming out and spending some time with me. I hope we can do it again! Sending hugs and love to you all!
So today was my first round of my Big Shot Class Part Two, and I promised I would show you what they made. Here is one of the projects, I will show you another one tomorrow.
Paper: Basic Gray, Whisper White, Urban Oasis Designer Series Paper, Cardstock Vellum, Basic Gray Textured Paper
Ink: Jetblack Stazon, So Saffron, Baja Breeze, Regal Rose, Kiwi Kiss
MIsc: Oval punch, Oval scallop punch, white gel pen, white organza ribbon, Manhattan Flower Textured Impressions Die (this is an embossing folder similar to the cuttlebug folders, but it is a little sturdier plastic and a little wider)
We just embossed the cardstock vellum with the folder and cut out around the flowers. Attach the vellum to the DSP making sure to put the adhesive so that the ribbon will cover it up and hide it.
Have an extraordinary Sunday, thanks for stopping in!
