Well, Annie, now you're making me feel like I need to get out and about more. Or is that oot and aboot in Canada-speak? Those metro-Detroit rallies look like a ton o' fun. Haven't been to Pennwood yet but I was thinking of using it for a stopover on my way to the Summer Solstice rally.

Notice the time gals - gees you make a racket around the fire!!! 9:41 and my kettle has just boiled for my cup of tea - something I missed during the whole Rivette Rush.

Glad you enjoyed the cookies - anyone seen that christmas commercial with the little fellow in the kitchen with his mom and the whole place is white??? Well that was what my kitchen was like last night.

PS. I forgot to tell you all that TinSista is a Gormy Kicthen Cheif and I have decided to outfit my LadyBug just for her. With all the latest kitchen gadgets - so wherever we travel with the "sistas" Steph will be in her element. Perhaps I should have bought a larger amp intelli

I am looking for a marine grill/warming drawer system that runs off propane. I had found one last year on the Internet but for the life of me I can not find it again. It is perfect - for doing all sorts of grilling and keeping things warm - if you cook inside.

We did a lot of cooking inside in the MB - I guess we don't eat at restaurants too much and not too worldly at cooking different dishes on the Weber. Never used the oven though - thus trying to find that marine appliance. - Any thoughts...?

Okay mystery over.

The Pinwheel song was the theme song for the Kiddies TV show of the same name - Pinwheel Playhouse

This show caught my eye in the early 80's in College when I had the pleasure of working with challenged kiddies in two years worth of "Placement" - It was something other than seseme street (which I was not kean on) and the kids just laughed everytime the show came on. They were video taped so not sure where they came from as I never did see it on regular TV at home.

Just a little snippet of knowlege you can file in the back corner

Since we are sharing and the cookies are almost gone and I know you are going to twist my arm and turn me upsidedown until I make some more

My most favorite show when I was a little girl of the ripe age of 4 was The Magic Roundabout

I could not believe my eyes when I saw the recent movie to be released.

DOUGAL!!!

....with the same cast:
Brian - Snail
Dougal - Shaggy dog
Dylan - Spacey Rabbit
Ermintrude - Pink Cow
Florence - Girl
Mr McHenry - Gardener
Zebedee - Bouncing Character


And my next most favvvveee was Noddy from Toyland

Noddy and his Toyland Friends Big-Ears, Tessie Bear, Mr Plod, Martha Monkey, Mr Sparks, Bumpy Dog and those naughty goblins Sly and Gobbo

But the best of all was the cool Noddy Car I got for my present going into hospital to have my tonsils out and here it is

That is when I knew I was not going to be into "Dolls" but into weird funny things - things that did silly things rather than sit on a dresser looking silly

You young things! Back in my day, we didn't have any of that there high tech entertainment. Children had puppets to watch on tv, we even had a tv repairman come to make house visits with a toolbox full of tubes. :-0 Sherry Lewis and Lamb Chop, Here's Geraldine (the giraffe),Garfield Goose and Frazier Thomas, Howdy Doody --The first "Dude"? And Captain Kangaroo with a series of a couple of pictures rocked back and forth to music. And dancing bear and Mr. Green Jeans. Oh there was Cluth Cargo with Spinner and Paddlefoot and the human lips moved.
Toon Tracker's Clutch Cargo Page
Then moving right along there was Bozo, and the three stooges, and my favorite Bullwinkle--need to get those on DVD. And somewhere in the mix was Saturday mornings with Flash Gordon and Commander Cody, and Sky King and Penny.

Well one thing hasn't changed through all the years, take tea and see, was Lipton's(?) slogan. So please Steph, I would love a cup of tea.

Then Lassie, Rin Tin Tin, Flicka...okay I obviously have been plummeted back to the past. Hope I will be able to fast forward again. I'm going backwards, pretty soon I may not have been born yet! What a trip. LOL

I'm right with you Carol! Only we didn't even have a TV. (Lived out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean--no reception!) But I did develop a reading and scrabble addiction that I haven't been able to shake to this day.
And tinsista, that is by far the best teapot for any and all brewing, from the current green tea rage all the way back to those strange flavors we used to savor...
So guess what came in the mail today? My new Rivettes t-shirt! Great job and many thanks, Jamie. I usually wear a small, and got a very snug medium. Great colors, great message. I love it!
Janet

I'm up for scrabble, upwords or trionimoes!

You gotta love Andy Kauffman's lip syncing too, Here I come to save the day!

Can you imagine what our heros (menfolk) would look like all dressed as superheros? Wonder which character Bradley would choose to be. Some day we will need to have a costume party. I don't know about you but that would really crack me up seeing our men in tights with capes.

Hey who is going to tell the story tonight? Maybe something like a harlequin romance.

The night was balmy. A gentle breeze filled the air. I could smell the sea. There we were just Antonio and me and the stars above...

Good Morning (as I rub my head and eyes, stretch my back and look into my bare cupboards - no groceries - I am going to starve today.

I guess all I have is "Virtual Rally Food and Games"

How about someone whip me up a batch of pancakes. Or better yet Steph hop too I will expect you in 6 hours with a beautiful quiche

Hmm brown bread and honey will have to do for my breakie this morning.

Annie did you notice it is before 9:00 today.....(I started on the Ladybug and have the "bug")

Has been around 0 the last couple of days celcius that is - just a balmy day to work on the LadyBug and shirk all other duties I would suspect.

I have put a pot of tea on - in the ONLY pot you should be serving tee in - a Stainles Steel Pot with the insides blackened from true english aging....

Love that teapot, Steph, and wouldn't mind trying some of the strawberry tea you've got there. Is there any left?

Huge fan of Mr. Green Jeans here, and Grandfather Clock, and I loved it when The Rabbit used to torment Captain Kangaroo by stealing carrots. I learned the inchworm song from that show and would always go running to the set whenever they repeated it. Sorry, Sharon, but I just don't recognize any of those characters of yours. Guess I have to sit in the old ladies corner now.

Anybody making blueberry pancakes for virtual breaky? I could sure use some now. I've got some lovely Vermont Maple Syrup right here waiting.

Hmm could I have banana or apple instead - not a big fan of blueberry

Well it is a big flake snowy day up here mild though. Just finished my latest install on the LadyBug thread and will be off to the fun stuff now.

Peter and I spent a bit of time in her last night and were really quite pleased with our purchase Inside now too. She is dirty but in solid shape.

I am a bit dissappointed with the trim level. Used to the International on the 61 and the changeover years 69 also used all metal - no plastic!!!

This one has plastic trim, curtain tracks and a few other cheaped out items - but no matter - RVS in Indiana has all the extrusions we need for the job - if I run out from the Excella parts.

Staring with the floor tile while she is frozen to keep the dust to nothing! they basically just peel off. anyway I should be writing this stuff in the other thread - but just incase you gals don't budge from the fire

Sorry, Sharon, missed what you said. Oh, you like apple pancakes instead? That's fine with me too, great with the maple syrup! I was just distracted reading this other thread -- absolutely brilliant story of a couple from Canada, man and wife, who cross the border thru blistering cold and snow to pack an old Airstream out of the U.S. and back over the border. Turns out they're not carrying proper documentation, end up getting fined etc. What a wild ride! WHAT an adventure! Those Canadians sure have moxie!

Hey, Sharon, aren't you Canadian? Gee, I can't wait to meet you and your husband someday.

Here try this syrup, Michelle (thecatsandi) made it herself! It is so good isn't it? I loved her pictures of the process, looked like a lot of fun.

While you are all busy trying this on your pancakes let me tell you what hero my hubby told me he would like to be, maybe some of you will remember that cartoon as well.
Underdog! Super-canine that talked in rhyme and the alteridentity of "humble, lovable" Shoeshine Boy. When Sweet Polly Purebred would sing, "oh where or where has my Underdog gone," humble, lovable Shoeshine Boy would slip into a phone booth and emerge as the champion of justice. "There's no need to fear, Underdog is here!" Underdog was the 1997 spokes-mutt for World Hunger Year. Ahh, my hero.
