*My Guestbook*

I want to say a big thank you to all the people who signed and hopefully will sign my Guestbook :)
It is so rewarding to me to read what was written in in makes me happy and keeps me going :)

Nothing really new here...I'm STILL working on my TDIPT dolls LOL but I'm getting there!

I talked to my Mom today, actually we talk every day, she told me that there was a picture in the newspaper of my Dad and her...the picture was taken last year in July 2007 at a local fest we had and it was an invitation for the people to come this year Dad was already sick at that time and he was looking into the seems like as he was wondering if he would be here next probably is just a coincident...I don't know!
The next day he had his first MRI and everything started to go down hill. It is 7 month now that he passed away and it still hurts like it just happened yesterday!

*Thank you*

Thank you all for your good wishes to our Anniversary :) it made me very happy, I really appreciate it!

Of course with my husband not being home :( I didn't do very much. I worked on a doll for TDIPT Mercantile and I wanted to cut my grass...well as soon as I took my lawnmower out of my garage it started to rain...just a little bit...I thought oh I will make it...I never cut my grass in such a speed as today...I was half done and it started to rain pretty good...I didn't mind but all those people who drove by thought probably I'm crazy LOL BUT I finished my misson :)

Hope everyone had a good day :)

*Independence Day July 4th*

On July 4, 1776, we claimed our independence from Britain and Democracy was born. Every day thousands leave their homeland to come to the "land of the free and the home of the brave" so they can begin their American Dream.

The United States is truly a diverse nation made up of dynamic people. Each year on July 4, Americans celebrate that freedom and independence with barbecues, picnics, and family gatherings.

Through the Internet we are learning about and communicating with people of different nations, with different languages and different races throughout the world. Bringing the world closer with understanding and knowledge can only benefit all nations. We invite all nations to celebrate with Americans online this Fourth of July. Happy Birthday, America!

I found this article on the says everything in there what I have on my mind :)

***Have a wonderful 4th of July***
