I'd love to stop: only one thing or two stops me, though: a little thing called vanity, plus the fact that my hubby likes the color I've been which is dark brown w/natural brown, red highlights I've always had, the other thng: he has retained his black color with only a little bit of gray just starting to come in..I think when I get tired of doing it, I'll end the cycle..

When I first started going "aluminum," I tried coloring mine. It was very dark brown, but when I tried a tint, I would invariably get a maroon shine that I hated, though I tried various colors, even ashy ones. So. . .I soon decided natural, whatever that might be as time went on, was for me. I'll admit, I'm more aluminum than dark today. That's okay And I'm really glad that I escaped the mess and saved the time for all these years! ~G

Wow look at all the breads and pies and goodies - I will be the size of a barn by the time we get to summer.

Shari we got some freezing rain yesterday and then rain for a bit. Went very mild and things are starting to melt. But the perma frost is still in so the water will just sit on top for a week or so unless we get more warm weather.

Been colouring since I was 21 - hereditary - "silver" hmm aluminum to funny. Did the box jobs 20 odd years ago but they just were so yuck - so had it professionally done for years untill it was running up past $70.00 every three weeks - so tried the box jobs again - and it is great 5 bucks!!! and it lasts longer than the professional kind. I switch up the colours a bit - (only when a mess up and forget which number to get.

I would let it all go - but....just a bit too young and I do not want to look like my Nana - or my Mom now - Peter is quite aluminum all of a sudden and it is okay for him but I am "white" really and he gives me that look when I say hmm should I let it go???? But it is getting harder to cover these days but I wanted to make it to 50 at least then I can let it go - so I have another 4 years of box colours to go. Only takes 30 minutes of my time I even cut my own hair sometimes if I am really busy and can not get out.

Well it is official - the "MoonBeam" has gone to her new owner as of yesterday. - I will have to go back to my old threads and wrap them up with the finaly goodbye pictures and introduce the new owner - and then she might take over.... It was a bit sad - but then I got excited right away to get working on the LadyBug so it took my mind off it.

But it feels a bit like snakes and ladders - we were almost at the top with MoonBeam - like the last sqare on the board - then we tossed the dice and landed on the snake that took us right back down to the beggining and further Got quite a bit done on her today. Still in the process of removing everything -to get to the floor, elec, plumb, propane and painting. I will work on the wood refinishing and selecting new hardware as well.

Fire is nice and warm - still gets cold at night....sorry I have left nothing out for munchies - need to get the groceries done..

Poaching notice

Anybody else find bunny a bit too bony?

Baked by a non-Airstream buddy of mine, this bread would go well with any chicken-like dinner. He used the NY Times no-knead recipe. One has flaxseed and the other was made with dried plum and substituting in 1c whole wheat flour -- looks like it needed a teaspoon or two of gluten added.


Enough talk like that! Better go sweep out the garage. I don't think our southern buddies have experienced the dusty salt taste of doing this. (road salt from car drippings, guys...)

Shari the comfort food and pie is looking real good to me.

Now why didn't I consider these silver streaks so in vogue with Airstreaming? Do I streak or do I cover up?

Marie the wagon idea is great. I dread the thousand and one trips out to load the Airstream especially at winter's end. Pulling the stuff out rather than making a trip with each armload would really cut down on the number of trips necessary and stop me from losing some of it on the way! Thanks for the tip. Cookie sounds so cute with her pre-trip preparations. Do you have a picture of her? Our Baron runs to the truck and jumps in as soon as we start carrying things out.

Sharon that would be very cool if Moonbeam's new owners keep up the thread. Vickie's new owners of the BettyLou 1 are also on the forum. I wonder if you two girls are the only ones on the forum that have kept up with the new owners and are members here too.

Annie, we will be so interested in your progress on the Argosy. And Sharon your thread is already teaching me so much about what is involved in a restoration. Give you girls credit, that's a lot of work but I know your results will really be awesome.

Janet, I think the buffin' buddies think we can't see ot hear them at their rally.

Karma guyz! The 4 stages of buffin': I'm rich; I'm good-looking; I'm bullet proof; I'm invisible.

Janet, I had to find some way to show Steph a pic of a friend's efforts at the no-knead bread...

Good Morning Everyone,

Our weather lately has caused Jeff and I to get creative to cure this awful cabin fever. It sounds as if we have one more extended period of snow and cold temperatures and then maybe we will be fortunate enough to be on the road to spring. Until then we have do whatever it takes! Gather round the fire ladies, pretend the snow is not there, grab a snack, and maybe Carol will share another story with us...

I have to admit that the natural red I used to have in my hair is now a very natural aluminum color. It has come in slowly, but it doesn't bother me enough to do anything about it. Doug is one of those guys that will probably never show any sign of silver, but he's offered to color his to match mine if it would make me feel better. True love. (Sorry, Sharon. I'm goin' gushy again on the thread.)

Canoe Stream -- that's some nice lookin' NYT bread that your friend made -- you know, the picture on the invisible thread? Maybe your friend would like to join us sometime and tell us what he? she? thought of that recipe.

I'm draggin' a bit with the time change this morning, so I'm going to put on a second pot of coffee if anyone wants to top off or refill.

Think SPRING!

-J

Smile 'Only her hairdresser knows for sure...'

Anyone remember that ad?

I haven't started coloring, my silver is there though especially when I tie my hair back.

My sister in law was taking black cohosh food supplements and her hair started turning back to its original dark color. Her stylist noticed it and was asking her what she was doing, the roots were coming in dark and the ends were gray. Isn't that something?

Hi Vickie love that photo!! Our snow is melting, melting. I was playing outside yesterday with Sam in the yard and we were in the sandbox it felt just like spring!! Dog was lying in the sun and playing with her toys...what a nice day it was!!

A word of warning about black cohosh. Some research has suggested that black cohosh may cause breast cancer cells to spread to other organs.

Again take a break and it takes forever to catch up in the reading....it is so great to see so many people posting - all the time and I hope we get more and more!!!

Up late again wow look at that time 2:50am - hmm wish I could say I was doing something productive with an Airstream - but no - it is round two on the Minor Variance Application - so I am up late writing and re-writing and re-writing our final cover letter for this Friday's hearing. But I have run out of steam and will have to proof and edit tomorrow!!!

I always find this forum such a great relief of all stresses. And so many interesting food groups, and funnin goin on - invisible buffin buddies that is too funny

Wow vickie lots of snow - that shovel looks good on ya The snow looks very heavy and if you have been hauling that like feathers - then I sure would not like to meet you up in a dark alley on one of your bad days

You know what they say about supplements of the not so important kind, you know the kind that reverses our habits and looks....they don't do so well in the long run. I would even hate to think of the damage all these colours my body has absorbed through my head pores over the years.

It rained a bit here - very mild and like many around here the snow is melting yippeeee. But they are calling for snow on Saturday yuck.

I sure hope the new gal finds time to come and visit here - MoonBeam is safely in her new home now with the new owners already whooning over her. It is great to see such excitement from the new owner. I just cringe now waiting for the oh wow this broke or no way that broke or how does this work I think a broke it. Why I even had one the day she picked her up. when we winterize we open all the cupboard doors to avoid condensation getting trapped and causing mold. Well any of you 68/69 owners who have the original plastic hinges now that they do NOT like the cold. but I could not leave them open or the would vibrate during travel and possible scratch the pristine wood finish!!!! so I really really really gently tried to pull them out and fold them down to close - not a good idea. One ever broke completely OFF - *&^%. We were going to replace all of them once they broke eventually with piano hing - I guess this will now be a task for the new owner.

But I tell ya my stomach went down to my knees caus I broke something in someone elses trailer YIKES!!!!

Not much happening on the LadyBug front....not this week anyway. Taxes and MVA that is it for me....

Smile Lovely spring morning!!

Wow our last warm day before the cold comes back, can't wait to go outside and play!!

Thanks Bob for the photos and the recipes!! I appreciate your bread baking wisdom so much!

Re: cohosh--Thanks Nancy I'll let my sis in law know.

Personally I'm looking forward to growing my own turtleneck I love that song by Michelle Shocked "When I grow up I want to be an old woman!!"
Course that doesn't mean I won't work on the appearance...

Good morning,

Carol, there is a picture of cookie on the pet forum that Ovelander 63 posted.

I'm going to try making the bread this weekend, so everyone keep there fingers crossed. And I'm getting a fresh jar of applebutter for it!!

Shari, could you send a little of that rain our way, I'm getting ready to go out and turn the sprinkler system on, we have the reclaimed water, since the week we've been gone has apparently been rainless and the grass looks a tad parched. Grass is the wrong term, I should say weeds looked parched.

Off to turn sprinklers on then grocery shopping. Check in later with you.
marie
