Say Gypsy you gotta see the wheel photos that I found. I wish I hadn't lost them, but I'm looking.


I started at the top of the thread with the intent of reading all the way up to the present before the world ended. Haven't made it yet. If I'm here in the morning, baby, you'll know I survived.

I thought a lot of dumb things then and still do. Nana and me skipping across the roadway atop of Shasta Dam is my first memory of her, and that she thought enough of her hair to collect rain water to wash it, nothing else, ever. Ora Belle Coonrod was a "beauty operator" before she met Leonard, my Grandad, and so was able to help make ends (try cigarets and liquor, Nana, LOL) meet when they moved to a new construction project. And my dad's sis, Dorathy, was a "beautician" which meant something, I don't know the distink-shun, but in both cases it meant, "Phew! Lemme outta here, she's perming again!"

I told neebee that including her with her slower dial-up is important to me. So hey there-and-here and sit-take-a-log, neebeeshaabookway-jack-of-all-trades-andcrafts-and-lingo and pretty-fair-doins-all-around-elsewise.

Because the fire needs more wood, more fuel, higher flames so we can really see one another's expressions, so to say, because our gang's all about hearing the day's events, meadow to summit, parking lot to summit, however-you-go, it's the dangdest-thing how you cover so much ground one day and next day you can't move due to one or another of dozens of things.
Don't lose your back-trail's a good thing to remember, just-in-case-of-something.

It's the same here--around the fire ring, you may think you remember where you may have heard that guy's story, but it's a different guy, just the same story, in a different place, not your range.

Nothing rings a bell.

Maybe it's chow-time and I'm just thinkin' 'bout the triangle-clang-thingy.

At least 5.7, let's go on down to the chuck-wagon, gang, and we can slurp some java-java.

These are floral Italian trivet tiles made by Furio, a stoneware outfit, and are supposed to be "one of a kind." Just like the Bonatti 'biner Gino gave me!

"He gave it to me, I give it to you, Mouse. It's-a genuine. And it's-a been on the Matterhorn, he told me."

My mother got these tiles at a trade show or from a rep at the bridal registry she worked in.

Both tiles are true. Well, both of mine, anyway. Can't vouch for Gino.

These are fired. We're talking Flames, baby!

"Stoneware, which, though dense, impermeable and hard enough to resist scratching by a steel point, differs from porcelain because it is more opaque, and normally only partially vitrified. It may be vitreous or semi-vitreous. It is usually coloured grey or brownish (it is) because of impurities in the clay used for its manufacture, and is normally glazed."--Wiki

hey there say, mouse...

the flowers are so nice!! i loved the vegetable arrangement, :)
yes!! the worked on dial up, too...

:

i love to take photos of flowers in various ways...it makes me wish, but not sadly, that BACK years back, in a large michigan field, that:
i HAD a digital camera... there must have been about 30+ WILD flowers of
all the main types out there...i'd have had a neat record of them, and some petty nice shots, too...

they appeared in different months, however, i tried to keep track on when i might see them...


aww, shucks, why i see you got some hypen all-hypened-up there, :)

then, as to the italian tiles, my mom and i have always loved to see these kind of things... she'd put stuff like this in her windows, or garden...

*neat note on you nana... nanas, both then and now, and even farther back, speak of 'that which was' and it 'not to fully appreaciated' ever again, as time and the quality of things, passes by...

us nanas and nonos, to the kids really need to spell out those old time things that made us who we are, that they loved...

like your nana, and the fashions, and most likely travel, it made her unique her, and a choice memory for you... sounds like she did a very
good job!...

keep up the good work, mouse, you have treasure to give to your family,
and this history, and these pictures, would be nice to be collected and shared with them!...

timid, i think it is, has shared a few old time pics of climbing, and, of california... it is a treat to see these things...


thanks for the shares.

and back to the shasta shares, thanks all, for chipping in...
i know ekat loves those venticular (spell) lentical clouds...

can't put the link for some neat ones, taking too long, :(

edit:

wow, just saw the book cover... yes, my brother walter told me about that book, after i wrote my jake books... we had a good talk about it and how diferent it was than how folks in USA dealt with things...

thanks for te share, mouse! :)
