A Quilter in the Midst..

2011-07-17_07-41-05_187
Ron and Barb are visiting us and enjoying our beautiful Black hills. They formerly lived in Dallas, TX. and just began full-timing about a year ago. Ron was a VP for a large Corporation and Barb worked for Harley Davidson.  They came to spend about a month in the area and although they have been here two weeks now, it seems like they just got here. They have been seeing the sights in the area and yesterday they drove over to Devils Tower in Wyoming.

Barb is an excellent quilter and when I walked out into the shop the other day, she had a new quilt she was working on laid out on the floor. It is actually a lap quilt she is quilting for Ron and it took my eye immediately.  It it a beauty!!  If you remember, Barb presented us with a beautiful quilt she made us for our Cabin when they visited us at North Ranch last March. We will be displaying on our Brass Bed in the Cabin when we get our furniture moved in.  Check it out:  Grand Opening

As I moved in closer and took a look at this beautiful quilt in the making, I had but one thought in mind......

Meanwhile, Ron and I are getting a lot of projects done. Ron’s specialty is Dri-Wash and Guard polish. Here we are applying a protective coat to the top of our Motorhome. Ms. Pat and I love and swear by Dri-Wash products and have been using them for years. Ron is one of their top dealers and ships the product all over the world.   If you haven’t tried some, you should and you will be amazed.  Dri-Wash is like PressurePro, it has been around for a long time and is often imitated but never duplicated. It is the Best!!

While Ron and Barb were gone to Devils Tower yesterday, Ms. Pat and I took a long 20+ mile trip out in the woods on the 4X4’s. It was such a beautiful day, with temps in the 70’s and low humidity. One of those days that makes you proud to be alive……..and be where you are in this big world!

All this activity just seems to really wear Ms. Megabyte2 out…..Whew!   If you're wondering what that red thing is on the top of my PressurePro Monitor Antenna, it seems that Ms. Megabyte2 likes to “chew” on the antenna. So I slipped a little piece of pex pipe on top of it so she can chew away and not hurt the antenna.  As the old saying goes, "There's more than one way to 'skin a cat'". :-)   Works for me!! Smile

It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!
