OK time to get the fire going. You may need to bring a light jacket or sweater this evening. I laid out the wood this afternoon and now that it is lit you have only to come on over and chat.

We've been driveway camping this weekend. And I am making a list of "camp"type things to try, like the iron and the bread with fruit or pizza fillings. I saw Steph made bread on the fire! I bet that was wonderful.

I do have some fresh coffee and a bit of sherry. Would you care for some?

Oh we bought a door guard from David Winick at vintagetrailering.com We haven't fastened it up yet but I shot a picture with it almost in place.

Yup! Fall is in the AIR!! It's 60* as I make ready to hit the hay. I happen to think of another tastey campfire treat popular with my girls when they were little. You take biscuits from a tube, cut them in 1/2's or 1/4's, flatten slightly, and wrap them around the tines of a marshmallow stick. After they are baked & lightly browned, remove from the stick, dunk in melted butter/marg. and roll in cinnamon & sugar mixture. Yummy! (A small table top grill works great and may be safer for younger children)

Hi Carol,


I googled pbs and this excerpt came up from the pbs. Nightly Business Report..maybe this is what what the trailer pertained to:


"Last Word"-Remembering Rosie The Riveter
SUSIE GHARIB: And finally tonight, in case you wondered, there really is a Rosie behind Rosie the riveter. The woman in the bandana and overalls became an iconic figure during World War II when she went to work building airplanes. The real Rosie was Rose Leigh Monroe, a widowed mother of two. She took part in a promotional film about the war effort and her image and the slogan "we can do it" put her center stage. After the war, Monroe became a pilot, drove a taxi, even started her own construction company. She died in 1997. Now, Paul, a highway in her native state of Kentucky is being named after her.

Rosie

Hi Sisters,
I saw the cover of Time magazine today. The new Rosie is really good ('cept for the tattoo ) but IMHO the original Rosie hasn't lost a bit of luster. It is possible, however, that I've had more years to remember Rosie than probably all of you. Nostalgia and all that I guess.

sue

p.s. btw, the "dough boys" (biscuit dough w/butter, cinnamon & sugar) are good!

Hey sisters! I just love these stories!!

I love Rosie old and new too! Paula what a great story!! My mom remembers her mother putting on the bandana over her hair and taking a bus to the factory to work during the war. (She got a kick out of Rosie being our role model for ladies who tow!)
Her dad worked nights at Detroit Edison, and they had a victory garden in the middle of what is now a freeway.

That is so cool! What does your "personal Rosie" think of our borrowing the WE CAN DO IT attitude and making it work on a personal level in the 21st century? Those women were really something and looking back, WAY ahead of their time it would seem. I'm glad we picked Rosie as our "mascot" - and for more than just the rivet connection.

Ummm.....let's see.....young woman, USO shows, SERVICE MEN. Yeh, I can see that adding up to some fun times even in the midst of the war and the hardships and heart aches it brought to those on the homefront.

A Rosie without a gun & rivets, my own mother worked in a GM foundry in Saginaw, MI. I think cleaning engine castings after they came out of the sand cores. Everything had to do with the war effort - no automobiles were being made then. There was also a GM plant (#2) there that was converted over to make machine guns. Even a testing range was in a basement area . It happens that Ike worked at plant #2, commonly known as "the (old) gun plant", for most of his 36 years with GM/Delphi before retirement.

That's all from the History Network for now! (quizzie tomorrow - bring #2 pencil and paper to class)

Suz and Steph,

I got from my mother-in-law, that she loved her young adult years, before she got married!..one day early in Steve and my dating years, she brought out her photo albums of all the friends she hung out with having fun with them at the USO shows, dancing with her young suitors, going bowling, cruising, and other activities she shared with her friends..kind of ironic, though, she was raised in the city, found love, and left the city for the country and married a farmer!..(kind of reminiscent of Eva Gabor and Eddie Albert's Green Acres)..all those furs, high heels put away for later, I guess!..her new life became filled with being a good housewife, helping raise 4 kids, feed the chickens and geese!..but she still talks about the good 'ole days!

I love the Rosie Theme...it is all about pulling it up and getting it done no matter what fears or anxiety you are facing....but the best thing it was women who grouped together like no other can... The support factor is beyond the other (not to be-little) just on a different scope...hmmm without the ego and pride factor - perhaps

My Mom was not so involved in the War efforts - and remembered her days of the war being frightened and shuffled into the air raid shelters of London England. She distinctly remembered the nurses tending to all the children. And went on to become an RN and practised all her life in the efforts of those in need of care and later specialized in those children who were not so fortunate to have been born "perfect".......................

My Mum has had a tough past three months and we have almost lost her a couple of times - (I have been just a bit too pre-occupied to frequent the forums as much as I would like to) They have finally found the source of bleeding after about a year of tests and various drugs. They have now taken the necessary procedures to "plug" her up so to speak She has been holding and actually climing in hemoglobin these past 3 weeks and seems to be out of the woods We can all breath a little easier.

There is just a bond between Mothers and Daughters - however distant it is there and always will be........."Women"

******A very special woman indeed. Not envolved in the war effort, but because of what she saw and endured during that time, was inspired to care for others. I hope to meet her one day.


I agree Sharon. It's about the "can do" part and bonding together for support, understanding, and encouragement. Yes, there's a bond between mothers and daughters (usually) and sisters also --- no matter how or when you get them or where they come from. Sometimes God gives sisters to you ........ the other sisters you choose. In fact, I've acquired some in the last year and they're just great!!! I've gone a lot of years without any.
