Vintage Vehicles

Posted: April 29, 2010 by admin in Uncategorized

Day after day I’ve driven along the same freeway, by the same farm, with this amazing old antique vehicle parked out front. Halfway between exits, it was neither quick or easy to swing by and snap a photo of it. The other day was perfect sunshiney weather, and I didn’t need to be anywhere in […]

Introducing the Honda Hog!

Posted: April 27, 2010 by admin in Uncategorized

I slapped together a video tonight of the whole project from start to finish. Well, about as much as I could when it had to be clipped and trimmed and masacred to the point where a couple weeks of fabrication fits in under 10 minutes. Have a look see! It’s a little bit long –  […]

Honda Hog Project Complete!

Posted: April 26, 2010 by admin in Uncategorized

We’ve been calling it the Honda Hog lately, rather than the Honda Hippo or the Hondapotamous, although who really knows what it is or what it should be called. Regardless, it’s the Mr.’s version of the discontinued Honda Fat Cat which is a motorcycle, but with really wide tires.  He made ours with parts from […]

Duct Tape

Posted: April 24, 2010 by admin in Uncategorized

Duct tape has been  referred to as “The handyman’s secret weapon” by favorites such as Red Green. We used to watch him back in the days when we didn’t have cable. I was out and about the other day and saw this little car. Of course I had my camera with me so I snapped […]

I wish we lived on this street!

Posted: April 20, 2010 by admin in Uncategorized

Saturday afternoon we went for a nice loooong drive to check the ice conditions up at our favorite fishin’ lake. (Which is still frozen flippin solid btw) We spent some time driving through the little community and found this street sign, which accurately reflected the neighbourhood. It would suit our neighbourhood to a T too […]

My 70th Post

 If you notice the time stamp on this blog post, you’ll see that it’s the very weeeeeeee hours of the morning.I *should* be sleeping, but my lovely dog had to go out yet again for her middle of the night tinkle and couldn’t let me dream for just  few more hours first. Old lady dogs […]

Country Corner

Posted: April 17, 2010 by admin in Uncategorized

Country Corner.  It’s what I’ve decided to call my new shop on Zazzle. The point is of course to try to draw traffic from my website Country Corner Crafts which for some unexplainable reason is still going strong after 11 years and kicks @$$ on anything I’ve tried to do since. I’m not ditchin’ the […]

Blue Jeans

Posted: April 16, 2010 by admin in Uncategorized

There’s a song I have on a burned CD in my truck that either makes me smile and sing along, or cry – depending on what kind of mood I’m in: Kieth Urban’s Blue Jeans song. I believe it’s a remake of some other country singer, but  either way the lyrics are the same.  “I put […]

Lunch With Mommy

Posted: April 15, 2010 by admin in Uncategorized

I’m well past the age of calling my mother “Mommy” and haven’t used that term  since my early teens when I was probably asking for something and pulling every stop. ;p  Kids do that – I was a good kid – but I did that. Mom has past that milestone of 60 now, and has […]
