C’Ville Tote July 2017

47 posts in this topic

 

Summer is now in full swing.  Hot and humid in some places and just hot in others.

July, well there is nothing like July 4th.  Growing up it was cap guns and cap sticks, sparklers and firecrackers.  In our neighborhood, the grills would come out in the front, along with lots of corn on the cob, and lots of melons, especially watermelon.  My Mom use to take the seeds out of the watermelons, as girls do not spit out seeds.  Boy she tried to make ladies out of us.

We would go down to the corner, play stick ball, half ball and tag along with a lot of other games.  My Dad always put the hose on the flag pole, but it did not touch the flag that was on the pole. 

In the morning, we would go to the town square for the 4th of July parade, with floats and decorated bicycles and at night we would all go to the bridge to see fireworks from 4 different places.

This was a time of fun and games.  We were free to run and play and we did a lot of walking.

The tote is red/white with blue handles and red sides.  The rose is red/white/blue.  The pocket is white with a blue hook and red writing.

I have added a piece of watermelon with a Little Miss Liberty.

So, tote #136 is called Happy 4th.  Let’s not forget that the 4th is the day to celebrate our freedoms, that were and are still being fought for.

Check me out.

My first thought when I saw it was "watermelon."  Then I read that you added a watermelon potholder.  Perfect!  :)

if I didn't have one already,that would be so stylin

such an innocent time we lived in back then,I remember playing with cap guns,this day and time it sure would be frowned on or outright banned

I remember they were quite loud,when the guns stopped working,we took a hammer to the cap strips

for us,it was hop on a train and head to Coney Island

Thank you all.

I think we had a more carefree childhood.  No electronics to sit in front of all day.  We had to go out to have fun.  We would say bye to Mom in the morning, come in for lunch (sometimes) and only to be seen again for dinner, then out again till the street lights came on.

The tote is all packed up and ready to go TOMORROW.

Off to find some clues.

This design perfectly captures the spirit of Independance Day, and what do you know, it was made in the U.S.A.! :)

Rocks, cap sticks, cap guns and even hammers.  Anything that we could use.  Sparklers along the walk lit as the day wound down.

The tote is on the stoop waiting to be picked up.

Yeah the bag was made in the USA with yarn that was made here, as it was made with the Old Peaches N Cream yarn.

I am having trouble finding clues for this state, as the info I have found only talks about the Civil War.

But lets see if this helps. 

Ok it was part of the Louisiana Purchase. 

It is the 25th State in the Union.

 

This state has the only active Diamond mine

 

Have fun and good luck.

Got the who.

Courtney, they have areas where you can dig and keep what you find. Every several years you read about someone finding a fairly big diamond.
