12,000 +

My son and his family were up from TN last month for our family reunion. He wanted to see Joe Pa:
 and of course my Daddles had to catch a bird that was trapped in one of the shops to put it outside:
 At our Schneck family reunion my Jellie won a small prize for being the youngest attending.
 My uncle and aunt won a small prize for being married the longest, 63 yrs.
 My Doodle’s won a cake. Notice the snail shape? That is the translation of Schneck. Really?
 We saw ‘the first’ house of Schnecksville where they raised 10 children. I still don’t know how everyone fit in such a small house.

I have been so busy harvesting….yes, this is one harvest....
And this is my reward. Whew, I’m exhausted!
I also put up peas, lima beans, green beans, tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato juice, corn, and carrots and is one of the biggest reasons for not posting for so long.
I finished my Row By Row experience yesterday! Because it was raining I could not get a good overall picture so I sectioned it so you could see some of the detail.

 The Little League Series was in town and this was in the air by our house for 2 weeks.
Lar and I went on the annual 9/11 Memorial ride. This year there were over 12,000 bikes. Some said as many as 15,000.

It was a fantastic, humbling ride. People came out to show their patriotism.

Back to that RBR. I took it into Hoover’s to show them my quilt and I don’t know what happened but the next thing you know, I walked out with this!!!!

The B 790

 I hated cleaning out the strainer on my machine when making the tomato sauce and juice because the little holes get full of puree and are hard to clean.

As I was scrubbing to get the puree out of the holes on a whim I stuck my Scrub Daddy inside the strainer and continued to use my little scrub brush as before. (You can stick anything into the strainer.)

It worked like a charm and took me no time to clean out the strainer.
Have a great week!
