Recycling 101

Remember last February when we had the ice storm, and 2 trees landed on our roof.
this guitar body is made from the Hackberry tree.
Jerry was going to make a piece of  lumber, 2x8 or something, to use in building.
When he sawed it, the grain just popped out.
So instead he glued up and cut out this blank
The center piece is Walnut. 

The Neck doesn't have
a finish on it yet.

but here it is.

Note the pencils and pens,
those are my spacers so I can move the body around
as I put the finish on the parts.

2014 Christmas Play

Our new minister and his wife, Brother and Sister Ellis,  have jumped in with both feet, and got together a Christmas Program with all the  children participating.  
They have only been with us about 6 weeks, but they convinced all the kids to do their part, and everyone showed up.
Top Left: Joseph aka JD.  One of the lambs,   Joseph, Mary, the Angels angel on left is known as Skylar, (standing) more lambs, a donkey, and some of the shepards.

Mary playing bashful.
Later in the kitchen, as we were getting things together, and that is one of the shepards, aka known as Stephen.
Then all the participants as they gathered, waiting for the call to start the play.

DIANNA'S WINGS by Cindy Loven

This isn't my regular review.  I was asked by a friend of mine, Cindy Loven, if I would review her first book, Dianna's Wings, The parables of Trevor Turtle.  It is a wonderful story of how Dianna, a Dragonfly, wants wings like a butterfly, not thinking hers are pretty at all.  Trevor Turtle tries to show her that she is beautiful just the way she is.

If you have children or grandchildren of preschool age, up to about 6, I'm sure you will find yourself reading this book many times.

I was given a digital copy of this book by the author, no other compensation was given.  All opinion expressed here are my own, and I highly recommend this book to anyone with young children.

Whooo Hoooo Cindy, Love you, and I love Trevor and Dianna.
