I'm Back!!!!!

I'm finally up and going!!!! I sure have missed everyone, Richard has been teasing me that you all would forget me by the time the phone and internet was fixed! :) This morning, mom and I went to Ashland and we met the phone company truck as we were pulling out! I was so excited that they were going to fix it! I guess this is one of the drawbacks of living out in the middle of nowhere! Mom's phone and internet worked but not mine, but mine comes in from a different direction. So they had to replace the line from the pole at the road and then down to the house.

Now that I am back, expect several posts for the next few days!! So, what have I been doing???? Sewing and spending lots of time with Mom!!! Speaking of mom, last week she had to go get her card renewed for work and she took me out for lunch!!! I know there are a ton of photos of this place but it was just sooooo cool!!! It is called Hillbilly Hotdogs! I has even been on the foodnetwork show, Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives!













I know for some, it may look nasty but they have their health department inspection sheets posted right out front for all to see and I will have to say that they have scored in the high 90's ever since they opened!!! It is such an amazing place and the food it GREAT! And when you leave a tip, he starts singing a song, something about wienies and plays the harmonica! We had a wonderful time and I want to take the boys down there soon, I think they would really enjoy it. They have a basket of sharpie markers and they tell everyone to sign SOMETHING!!

Last Saturday, Hunter had a flag football game! Here are a couple of photos from that! If you look close in the one, you will see one of the players laying on the field! That is Hunter!!! :( He ended up being fine, I think his pride was hurt more than anything!




Oh and I have finished all of my Civil War Love Letter blocks!!!!! I will post about those later! I have also recieved more packages of blue fabrics for my Nearly Insane quilt!!!! So thank you all for those! I will post about quilty things later tonight or first thing in the morning, I need to load my photos on the computer!!!

I'm so glad that you are back! We talked about you not being around while I was in Wisconsin. I'm also glad to hear that there wasn't anything more serious wrong than the phone line! Welcome back to the online world!

So happy to see you back< Kristie! It was a bit like missing a friend who has gone on holidays.
Hillbilly Joe's sounds a hoot, but I must say looks really dodgy from the health aspect, but, I do believe you!
Hugs - Lurline.

Oh Kristie, you got to go to Hillbilly Hotdogs! How neat! My sister told me about getting to meet you. I would have liked to have been there. I told her about your quilts and the snake in your kitchen, lol! I'm glad you have your phone and internet up and going. Could you drop by my blog and pick up a reward that I have for you? Debbie-WV
