Caroler's Street lamp

                       I finished up making the old fashioned street lights for my Christmas Carolers. 
This is a picture of my little carolers standing under the light singing 
their hearts out in 106 degree temperature.  
I whipped up 6 of them today.  
This is the only one decorated so tomorrow I will work on finishing the rest standing here in my foyer.
Pat was my electrician.  Son Mike helped put all the holes in the bottom of the lanterns for the light socket.  Son Steve helped me finalize the structure and I did all the painting and decorating.  
These will be at my bazaar in November.  I love them.  It is still so hot here.  
I believe when I was working in the garage this afternoon it was 110 degrees.  
Please send us rain and cooler weather. 
Thanks for stopping by.

Anniversary Lunch and Anniversary Dinner

On Monday, August 8th, Pat took me to lunch at "Capitol Grill" at the Shops at Legacy. It was our anniversary.  We had a wonderful lunch along with a free glass of champagne.  I got to take home the red rose laying on the table. 
On Monday night the 15th we went out to dinner with our dear friends, Bob and Julie.  On August 16th they will celebrate their 43rd anniversary.  We try to celebrate each year together.  Bob & Julie leave on the 17th to go to Hawaii for 2 weeks.  They will be spending time visiting with their daughter Kerrie and her family. 
We are still in the 100 plus degrees here in McKinney.  
Thanks for stopping by!
