Teapot Olympic Pin

I saw this USA Olympic pin on a post over at Angela's Tea with Friends. She found her pin on Ebay. I did a quick search and found this one. It was not expensive and I just had to have it! OK, I am not a pin collector. I admit it was the teapot on the pin that made me do it! Thanks for the tip Angela!

Note added later: Congratulations to Michael Phelps on all the gold!

A "Camp-Out" Before School Starts

AJ and KJ asked G-pa to put up the tent in the yard for a "camp out." We live on a street surrounded by woods and a golf course. This summer our neighborhood has hosted more than our fair share of critters including skunks, raccoons and 'possums. Armed with sleeping bags, a few toys and flashlights they set out for the night until...
a BEAR scratched on the side of the tent!
No, it wasn't a real bear. It was just an unexpected "Grandma Bear." But, the camp-out quickly ended and everyone came into the house for a good night of sleep, fortunately for G-pa who had to go to work in the morning
