Memorial Day Week-End

Gifts arrived from Libby! A lovely note, a Marine Mom decal that I think I will put on my kitchen window to deter any wandering marauders, and...

a Judie Rothermel FQ that I love and it is one that I do not have. It happened to land next to Jo's Bird Chintz and look how great it is with it:

Thank you, Libby, for thinking of me!

Timmy the Marine is home on leave! This is Timmy's future car, a 1930s Deusenberg. Oh wait, no, we went to see a 1930s luxury car exhibit at the High Museum of Art:



This is a body-only replica of an early Porsche; I think it looks like Wallace & Gromit's hovering spacecraft:

A historic moment and Timmy was there....

I love this 1956 GM car show photo:

Other museum sights:






A happy and relaxing Memorial Day week-end to all USers.

I'm so glad Timmy was home on leave. Hope you both have a wonderful visit. You must be so proud of him! I loved the car exhibit; we went a couple of weekends ago.

I didn't know he was coming home on leave. That's wonderful. Looks like you had a great time.
