    • Here is my day one project.  I thought I had signed up but must not have so I did so late.   I used Alphas I have collected for the letters.
    • Story Time #2 - The Bird, a Thanksgiving tale. I will post the text here as I doubt it will be large enough in a 600 format. The title is an alpha from Sheila Reid, the fonts are Bremen Bold for the pheasant and Bell MT for the text. I used the template but added my own extras to it. I had a lot in a Thanksgiving kit that I had stashed. I used wood pattern for the background and the round frame. The photo corners were in the kit.  Here's the text:  Our traditional Thanksgiving dinner was always wild pheasant. My husband, Jack, brought home the bird and Debbie and Laurey were tasked with plucking it and I would stuff it with sausage dressing and roast it with bacon layered on top because wild game is not as juicy as a commercial bird. The only drawback to having a wild shot bird was dealing with the tiny bits of lead birdshot that was embedded in the meat. We eventually solved that problem by going to a local game farm and purchasing a wild pheasant, freshly killed. I always preferred the taste of pheasant compared to a traditional turkey.
    • Carole, I forgot to add the shadows.
    • I had time to play this morning while electricians were here ... fixing of all things ... the pool!  LOL  The alternating color title I found so much easier than the two papers one, which I WILL play with again later.  I'm glad to have a pool this year as it seems every beach for miles around me has had shark sightings and closures.  Some of those sharks even have drones following their journey.  I saw JAWS once many years ago!  That's enough to convince me to stay in the pool!  We have always had sharks out to sea, but as our waters warm in the Northeast, it seems the sharks are acclimating, too.  It is their home, so I guess I will let them have it.  We have had whales, too, deliberately attacking boats ... one close to here that threw the two men aboard into the water.  Yikes.  Scary.  They were fine, but the boat I bet wasn't.  Yup, POOL sounds like a great idea! 
    • The city water park (swimming pool when I was growing up) is just 3/4 of a mile from my house. There is a gazebo and a small playground next to it. Next to that is a baseball field. Next to that used to be 4 tennis courts that were used by the high school tennis team when I was in school... the high school at that time is right across the street. Another baseball field was next to the courts and the one that used to be used for high school baseball games is behind the school next to the football field (which is across from the water park). The baseball field next to the courts was on the edge of a big grass area that the football team uses for practice. That field is not used much and grass may have been planted there leaving just 2 fields that are still used at times. Within the last 15 years one half of the tennis courts was made into a skateboard area and just in the last couple of years the other half was made into pickleball courts. The school is now the middle school. When the new high school was built in the 90's, they eventually put 6 tennis courts, a baseball field and a soccer field there that are used by the high school teams. On the other side of town is a newer park. It has 8 baseball fields, a basketball court, a volleyball court and a playground area. The swimming pool was built in the 1930's as a part of the WPA (1935-1943) and was the same pool my parents used as kids. In 2007, the city received funds from a local foundation to upgrade the facility and a water park with a smaller pool was built. The original buildings still remain. And, the football field was built in the 1940's and has been upgraded over the years. The Ohio High School Athletic Association has had playoff games for football here for many years. It is a very nice stadium. For a small town, we do have nice facilities for recreation.
