Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Sixth Folder Sixth Picture

Lallee, from Lallee's Cottage asked me to show her my 6th picture in my 6th folder. Here it is.
Hoover Dam. Last April the mister and I drove to Arizona to see a Nascar race. We're not really fanatic Nascar fans but the mister thought it would be a good idea to see one before we kicked the bucket. You know, the list. We'd just seen the movie and all. Anyway, I'm glad we went, I don't ever have to go again. I heard the F word more times in that 3 hour race than I have in my entire 50 some years. EVERYONE around us was drunk. I realize I'm pretty sheltered but hey, I grew up in the 60's. In California. I've been around. I do love road trips though. We stopped at Lake Mead and then toured Hoover Dam. Of course you had to go through metal detectors like at the airport. On the way home we stopped at the Grand Canyon. That canyon is indeed grand. The weather was beautiful and we had a great time.

Hi MiMi,
I don't like fowl language either and have never understood why some people cannot talk without using it.
Blessings,
Sue

Hi Mimi...I have been to many a Nascar race here in Georgia when the husband was with Lowe's you know Jimmy Johnson and all....It was fascinating to say the least....yes, lots of "cuss" words as they say down South and the noise!! I haven't been the same since...thank goodness he's no longer with Lowe's...

Hi Mimi...me again. Have you seen the prices of the Viking ranges....Oh my God!! I just saw an ad in the new Food Network magazine, it's a good magazine if you haven't seen one yet, and the range is over $9,000....I've had a stainless JennAir for over 10 years and it's okay but with that downdraft system, when you have the grill lit it turns on the vent fan and sucks all the heat away from the other burners if your cooking on them...I should start saving my money too...but at $9,000
I'll be in my 80's before I could afford one....

Thank you for playing along! I could not figure out what your picture was at first. LOL I'm sorry about the Nascar experience. I went to one in my 20's and it was nothing like that. My how times have changed :P I would LOVE to see the Grand Canyon again!
