There's always room for more folks to join us. If you're just stumbling upon our July thread or have lurked in the past and would like to join the fun, here's how our group works. During your Birth Month, you will receive a Birthday Card from each of the other participants. And in turn, you are to mail a Birthday Card to each participant during their Birth Month. Who doesn't enjoy receiving a thoughtful Card instead of junk mail and bills? A Card and a 1st Class Stamp, it's as simple as that. Purchased and handcrafted Cards are both welcome. Come on and have some fun!!!!

So far we have no August Birthday's, but it is never too late to join in the fun!

August 2nd
National Ice Cream Sandwich Day
National Ice Cream Sandwich Day is a time to enjoy a cold sandwich...an ice cream sandwich.
The ice cream sandwich is so popular, and tastes so good, that it earns its own special day...today.
Ice cream sandwiches have been around since the early 1900s. Vanilla, chocolate and a combination of the two, are the most popular. You can make homemade sandwiches. Just put some ice cream between a couple wafers, and.. ...Voila! Don't have wafers? That's okay. Put some ice cream between two of your favorite cookies.

Happy Birthday to...

August 4

National Coast Guard Day

National Mustard Day celebrates the "King of the Condiments".
Mustard is a must have for hot dogs, sausages, and a wide range of sandwiches. Its an important ingredient in many recipes, too.
When it comes to condiments, Mustard is among the most popular. When it comes to longevity, mustard is unrivaled. It has literally been in use to spice up meals for thousands of years. To retain it's status, mustard has not stood still. Rather, it has diversified. It's not just yellow anymore. There's a growing selection, including Honey Mustard, Bold and Spicy, Sharp and Creamy, and of course Dijon Mustard. Take a trip to your refrigerator, and you will probably find two or three different types of mustard. A trip to the grocery store, will reveal even more selections.
Have a happy National Mustard Day.

Happy Birthday to...
Disney Channel twins Cole and Dylan Sprouse (1992),
NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon (1971),
actor Michael DeLuise (1970),
"Lost" actor Daniel Dae Kim (1968),
film star Billy Bob Thornton (1955),

Hi, all.
Just got back from vacation... Went camping for the week :) We all, including my guide dog, had a wonderful time! You did save me some cake, right?
Hey, this is turning into quite the party: raspberry cream pie (not sure I've had it before, but it sounds delicious!), ice cream sandwiches, watermelon, mustard (so there must be hot dogs or sausages or something to put it on, or in... I have a recipe for cauliflower that uses it in a sauce and tops it all with cheese) :)
That's neat that Goober will be able to join Dave's Garden :)
Elfie, I do hope the doctor is able to help you feel better soon!
Well, I better go catch up on some other threads, too, but I'll stop by again soon! Take care, everyone!

Was the kid's name Beanie or something like that? Fruity it was a children's cartoon and Cecil was a very inept sea serpent. For some reason I remember part of an episode where he sang "Raggmopp"And the two or three lines stick in my head now.

Haven't heard from Twyla, hope she is doing ok.

Haven't heard from Twyla either. Hope she's doing all right. Wonder if she's had trouble getting to Dave's Garden again.
Speaking of the garden, finally tidied up my deck garden. Sadly, I think I lost some of my plants. Not enough watering this summer. Sigh... I'll have to see what regrows. Thankfully, my tuberoses and amaryllis belladonnas are still alive and are in bloom! :) They sure do smell wonderful!

Beanie and Cecil.. That's right. Leave it up to LK to find the video. :)) Oh for a simpler time.

Funny story. In the "old" days when you had an appendectomy there was one incision where your appendix was. Now they do it laprascopically and I have 3 inscisions all over my abdomen none of which are even close to my appendix. They are all sore. When the Dr. called the other day I asked him how was this an improvement. He said "you get to go home". I said "yeah, to suffer in silence. ". He was still laughing when we hung up. :0) Gotta love modern medicine.

I don't think I ever saw this cartoon about the Sea Serpent. When people in our area were just getting TV , we did not have one, but visited my uncle, who did, to watch Gun Smoke. We arrived just after the news, watch Gun Smoke and then the TV was turned off so we could visit a few minutes before we left. (They did not turn TV on again when we left either. There was none of this watching for hours like now) It was more like a dessert and you would not care to eat too much as it would ruin everything.( which turns out to be true.) This seems like actions from another planet but it is true.
When I was first married, we didn't have a TV and people were continually giving us old half broken TVs. We would keep them for a while and then ditch them. We had so many fun things to do and read, etc that TV was just not on the horizon. About 6or7 years ago because of my husband's condition I decided to get him direct tv. He has been stuck to the Tv ever since.

Chrystal - I love direct tv. We tivo everything - I cannot stand to sit through the commercials. Our tv is off when we have people over - I prefer to put a couple of disks into the cd player and have music. I put Christmas carols in around Christmas time - however, I was brought up to have some manners as were my children. I was thrilled to see my son hold the door for an elderly lady when we were at the store - he is 28, so I must have done something right.

Neener - feel better soon and don't do too much too soon. Let the others' wait on you.

Beanie and Cecil - I remember Beanie and Cecil. One of my favorites as a child - along with Mighty Mouse and Mr. Ed.

He still has swagger and used to watch him in cowboy movies. Anybody else recognize his voice in recent Dodge Ram truck commercials?

I never realized that, Michelle. The one on the 7th is a circa 1950 black and white video titled Time For Beany - Cecil and Harry Truman Do "Raggmopp". Credit is given to beanyandcecil.com

Heather, welcome to the group. I will add your name to the top. All you have to do each month is send a Birthday card to the Birthday people. Pretty easy, and in March, all the girls will send you a card. You can send seeds or some other small gift, but not mandatory, as we are keeping it simple to just a card.

Lol. I like the lazy day... I have done nothing today after building the ceiling for the bedroom all by my lonesome yesterday. It was way more than I should have done and am covered in very ugly bruises today. Ralph is very upset with me...sigh.

Took 8 hours to cut and put up 3. 2x6x14s. Then put the plywood on to of that. Sad. Huh??? There was a time when that would have taken just an hour or so. My useless brother helped with the plywood piece.. well one of them any way.. said his legs hurt to much to do more than that.

Will see Goober on Monday and set up her account. She has decided on GooberFairy as her DG name. She will want to join the birthday card swap and Ralph and I will make sure she has enough cards and stamps to keep up with the rules.

Hi, all.
Lazy Day?! Oh, darn! I haven't been celebrating it properly... been getting a bunch of laundry and such done today... What's up with that?! :)
National S'mores Day... How about a nice lazy evening, eating yummy s'mores? Sounds tasty, but sadly, I don't think we'll have any tonight. I did have one while we were camping, though! My husband made it for me with the marshmallow done just right :)
Heather, that's so Cool... glad you're joining us!
Waving hello at Elfie :) Glad you stopped by... After all that work yesterday, I think you deserve a nice lazy day :)
Ah, that's what the YouTube links were for... Thanks for the descriptions :) (Oh, and don't worry, LK, my husband forgets sometimes, too!)

Elfie, I can't imagine how you did that virtually by yourself. Working overhead is hard and achy but don't have to remind you of that. Geez, girl, you deserved to take a lazy day, or three :) Can't wait for Mkiss GooberFairy to be official!

Michelle, have you tried those Monster sized marshmellows? Cooked just right for me is charred on the outside and all ooey-gooey inside.

Have a great week-end All. One more round of storms tonight and hope to weed and start early Fall clean-up tomorrow. Anybody planning to order Spring flowering bulbs?

Hi, all.
Hadn't heard of the monster-sized marshmallows... Bet they'd make great toasted marshmallows, though :) I like mine nice and gooey on the inside and nicely toasted outside (not charred, though).
Not sure if I'll get more spring bulbs yet or not. There are probably some I'd like to have, but I need to figure out where to put them :)

Frootz I ordered some extra lilies weeks ago and managed to get them planted before my affliction. They are all up except one variety which seems to be lagging way behind. Planted them all in pots this time to keep the voles from eating them. The little buggers ate all my Naked Ladies that I bought last year. Paid 12.00 a bulb and they are gone. ARGH!!

I'm about ready to pull the tomatoes. Did the carrots the other morning which was more bending over than I should have done. Okra is doing good still and so are the peppers. Been a lost year for gardening here. Now I just have to try to keep it under control until I can get some mulch next Spring. Anybody got any able bodied teenage sons they can send my way? :0) I'm definitely getting too old to do this by myself anymore.

Kris, you know better than to do things like that by yourself. I know your anxious to get things done, but please wait for help. Sure hope you get good news from your Dr too!
Joy, sounds like you have a good size garden! And good soil to grow things in! We have hard caliche/clay soil here. It is hard like concrete when dry, and you have to literally dig with a jack hammer. When it is wet, it is like a sponge, and everything gets slick with that slick mud! So everything I grow, (flowers only), grow in pots or raised beds.
I like my marshmallows charred too!

"go to your dad and say, "I know the truth" and he'll give you money"
So the young boy went home and said "dad, I know the truth" and
his dad gave him ten dollars and told him not to tell anyone 'the truth'.
He then went to his mother, " Mom, I know the truth” he said.
"Please don't tell your dad" she said and gave him twenty dollars.
Content with thirty dollars he went outside to go to the arcade and saw the milkman. "I know the truth,” he shouted out.
The milkman replied "Well come and hug your real father then"

Hey all.. getting a lot done at the old house. Gryphon has been here and is a really big help. We work for 2 hours in the morning and then a few hours in the evening. I can finally find the walk way. We both got stung by yellow jackets,, Gryphon on his nose and hand. Me on my elbow. Gryphon is fine, but my ARM swelled up really big.. doesnot hurt ant more thank goodness. We also cleaned off the front and back decks. So much work to do and doc is yelling cause she wants me on bed rest. But as long as I feel good I am going to keep working on this.

I am going for testing on the 27th of this month for my thyroid. The docs days I have gout, and 10 % loss of my kidneys. I am not in much pain right now so will try to get everything done that I can before it gets worse. That is if it gets worse at all. The kids are treating me as if I am crippled. It is sweet but a little annoying...lol..

I will go back to Alex City on Monday if all goes well here. Lookig foward to sleeping in my own bed...

Goober had a great day at school yesterday. She is happy with all her teachers and says the blouse I bought her was a big hit. it was all strech lace with lonnnnng sleves in lace. She said everyone in the school thought she looked super cool. I found a very cute retro looking jacket for her today at the Salvation Army for only $5.00 it still had tags on it for $ 65.00 how great is that.

I called my insurance agent today and found out that Ralph and I can go to doctors and hospitals here instead of the long trips back to Columbus. So that will save us about $60.00 in gas each month. Of course that also means I will not see the grandkids as much cause I usually see them every time I go,,,sigh.

Yum, yum :) How tasty!
Been working out in my garden again... Finally! There's still plenty to do, but at least I've started :) It's amazing how many bulbs and bulblets 25 freesia bulbs can turn into in just two years! Haven't counted them, but there's a lot there! Paperwhites and Babiana have been quite prolific, too.

Hi, all.
All right... I think it's time for a good laugh :) On Friday, while dividing up my freesia bulbs, I found a perfectly rounded seed. It kinda reminded me of a large amaryllis bellaconna seed, but I could quite figure out how it got into the planter where I found it. But I decided to replant it anyway. Well, then I decided I was going to put freesias back in that spot, after all, so I retrieved the seed. Now you must realize, too, that the soil closer to the top of the planter is much drier, so the outside of the seed had dried out a bit. Well, when I found it again, I realized that it was a very strange seed indeed... It turned out to be (dramatic pause) a MARBLE!!! LOL Also found a nut that a squirrel had buried. Guessing the squirrel buried the marble, too!

Well gee - Lee Ann Rimes I was just noticing how skinny you look in all those skimpy fringe string bikinis you like to wear at the beach but then poor thing, no - you are just a baby. Glad for you.

I am as tired as a tired girl can be, but there's no end in sight. I have a book back full of belated birthday cards to send each of you. I will maybe put your Christmas cards in the mail now too.

School started on 8/16. Ragged. 80 miles one way to the parking lot. Then a bus to school. Have to leave at least 2 hours in advance of my first class.

Work continues. Ragged. 60 miles one way. Decided early on to pay for parking right across the street. No brainer.

Yard, critters, neighbors kids and critters (she had her house bombed today for fleas and her girls are coming over after 5 too).

GAH!

I feel like a heel, but I won't drop out of birthday club unless you kick me out.

Dang.

A.

addendum:

YAY!!! Jennifer (neighbor) says Abigail (other neighbor) can watch Claire (Jennifer's 4 year old) after 5 (Abigail has a 5 year old girl, and they (Lila and Claire) play beautifully together. :D

Olivia, Jennifer's 9 year old, is much easier for me to take and can tag along and enjoys helping me with my critter chores (particularly Billy the goat who lives at Tracie's (goat lady) house.
