Carp in Stockton and Visiting Sam And Sam's Domain!
Happy Animal Wednesday...we saw these big beautiful Carp in Stockton at the big party celebration for my aunt and uncle the day we left on vacation. (I'll post more of that later)...but a visit to Mim's blog today reminded me of this photo. Our last friend stopover in Oregon with our dear friend Sam! Here she is saying goodbye from her back door when we left the next day. Sam(atha) has been our friend since the late 1970's...She was Jim's wife (our friend who died last year), and Abby's mom (the young woman I made the quilt for from her dad's collection of Hawaiian shirts)...We've been celebrating the Fourth of July with them since well since forever. This year was no difference, except Jim wasn't there and there was no singing and guitar playing. We went to the small townships HUGE fireworks display after having eaten a fun/delicious picnic dinner out in Sam's yard. I took my camera around the house outside and shot all of her yard art of which there is some at every turn.
