  5. Hi Ladies. Summertime is definitely affecting my life. Lol We're under heat advisories yet again and we're not walking Gracie between about 10 and 4...her paws could burn. She gets her bath and haircut tomorrow. Only the border is left on my current granny 'ghan and then I have DD's request for some more face scrubbies. Have a good evening, everyone.

  17. Thanks for confirming I'm not losing my mind (well on this subject, anyway ) I know I've referred to them in the past (like RR did above) but there did used to be a number there.
  18. Dog days of Summer. That is what my Mom always called August. This was the month before School started. We always went back the day after Labor Day. We always went to the shore in August. Our neighbor use to go to Ocean City and help her friend run her boarding house and we use to go also. So one week in August we would pack the car and spend the days on the beach and boardwalks and just have fun. I think this was also a vacation for Dad, as he had the house all to himself for a week. Once we got home, it was time to buy school cloths and supplies. I always like the idea of a new notebook, paper, pencils and as I got older pens. The little case that clipped into the notebook to hold our pens, pencils, pencil sharpener and erasers. Let’s not forget the erasers. One thing I also remember is popsicles. They were called twin pops. Don’t know if they still have them. We use to be able to break this popsicle in half and share it with family and friends. This tote reminds me of popsicles. Lemon, Lime, Pineapple, and Lemon. The pocket and rose remind me of Grape. The tote is made of Peaches N Cream Pink Lemonade, sides Lime Green and handles Yellow. The pocket is made with America’s Best Dark Purple with yellow writing and hook. Tote #137 Twin Pops. Close-up
  19. No post numbers using chrome on my phone, either.
  20. I also don't see any post numbers, I am using Safari on a Mac. I honestly don't remember post numbers from before the big changeover; maybe I had my settings to where I didn't see them then...or most likely, I just plain don't remember
  21. Off topic and sorry for the hijack, but...can you guys see the post numbers?? I know they used to be there, but I just noticed they aren't there now when I went looking for Redrosesdz's post 2. Just doing a sanity check before I report it in the problems section, in case I'm having a senior moment or something. (Windows 10, no post # showing in Edge or Chrome) This is what I see
  22. #1 glad you checked in as I had been wondering about you. Hope things get better. I have been wondering about Lovin2Crochet too. Linda I can believe the 6' weeds. They love this heat and humidity and seem to shoot up over night. Mary Jo hope this bulb lasts for a very very long time. Its another hot humid one here today. More storms expected tonight and there are still about 1000 without power from Sat nights storm. My eyes are gunky and I am congested from mowing yesterday. Well is everyone ready for the Great American Total Solar Eclipse on Aug 21. We are on or just outside the outer edge of the band of totality and it sounds like things might be absolutely crazy that day. One article says 12 million people live within the band of totality and another 25 million live within a day's drive of it and that the population inside the path of totality may double that day and that it may be one of the worst traffic days in national history. I have a friend who is with a group flying into the area from CA to watch it. We were going to try to get together and watch it at the airport in St. Joseph (which is in the center of the band) but learned that it was going to be way too crowded for comfort there. They are going to rent a van and try to find someplace farther north west. I have another friend that lives in St. Joseph and they are expecting lots of traffic problems that day so much so they are recommending businesses to shut down. She said we could come up and watch at her house but I think we will be staying at home. Of course I keep thinking it could very well be too cloudy to actually see anything except for it getting dark and then light again.
  23. Good morning its pleasant out today,high of only 80,so will try and get some 6',yes you are seeing that right, weeds dug out enjoy the day
  24. Love the rock. Mojo is not working this week. I mean it is taking me 2 days to make a broom doll. Well today is picture day for the tote. Pictures should be on soon. Have a great day.
  25. Good Morning. Love the lap ghans and squares. They are really pretty. Up early and out to get the paper. Also had to change the bulb outside near the pool. You can see the fan and light out the window when we take pictures of the tote. When that is blown out, it is so dark in that area nd the kitchen. So for the last time we changed the bulb. To much for us. Pineknott, sorry to hear about the tire. Hope when you get the car back, everything is fine. #1Crochetfan I do hope your Summer improves. Keeping you and all others who need it in my thoughts. Well, today is picture day for the tote. Back later.
