The photo is my son and myself. Now days you can get a photo made to look old like this one. This photo was taken when this was the new look.

Harry S Truman was president when I was born and world war II had ended. I grew up in a time when lunch was put in a brown paper bag and a sandwich was wrapped with wax paper. There was no such thing as pantyhose, we wore stockings that attached to the rubbery clippy things that attached to the girdle. Convenience stores were not common and when we took a trip we packed a picnic basket because many places did not have fast food. Highways had places to pull over and stop, some with picnic tables.

I don't always do things the correct way but sometimes you can still get to the same place anyway.
These are my bobbins for bobbin lace.
My new book and the wrong size crochet thread because I cannot find anything even close to size 70
Here I am pointing out the worker set, the green thread
And since my thread was way too large I ended up with a canvas instead of a lace bookmark.  But I enjoyed the practice and interesting design.  I kind of like the canvas bookmark.
Since bobbin lace takes up way too much time during the day I will have to save that hobby for those times when I cannot sleep. Clothes hung out before the temperatures are taking a dive to the low 20's.
I have some pots that I keep behind the work shop and I toss old potatoes that start sprouting in the dirt.  Even though it is winter the potatoes are coming up.  I put a five gallon bucket over the top of them due to the deep freeze.
The cabbages, parsley and carrots went through the hard freeze just fine since they are in the cold frame and spot lights helped to keep them above freezing.  They like the cold but not teens or low 20's for an extended period like we just had.
