Our Journey...

Think we forgot to tell you a lil bit about what sort of vacay we're on! Last September of 2011, Dad retired. He and momzers got an RV and decided to plan a trip across the country, visiting national parks on the way to Maine (where's that?) for a family reunion. That's a long trip from northern California! Anyway, this blog is now a record of our travels across the good ole U.S. of A. and even Canada - plus all the things we get to do and see! We started our journey mid-March and hope to be back in NoCal by mid-October - yeah!

True Colors

Mum's Market Bag

















Shell frame with lime design in center







Cover-up for???????


Fruit! The colors of which look pretty gross if you ask me. A pear, an apple, grapes and a lime, and... a chayote! It's a fruit you can eat with or without skin. In salads, it tastes sort of like a combo cross between a potato and cucumber. You can cook it any way you want and serve it with butter or herbs and spices. Here's to lime shades. Happy Thursday!

Heya Sammie,
We are trying to cut down on our time requirements so we want you to go over to Mitch and Maggies blog about this NOT True Color lime thing.
http://northfordmaggie.blogspot.com/2009/04/true-colors-thursday-lime.html
Find our comment to them and do a "cut and paste" it into the comments sections for this post that you did. Be sure to save all these "lime" picture cuz next week's NOT True Color might be chartruse, which is like lime which is really a puke GREEN. See how much time and effort we saved by not having to write a big long comment on your blog for this NOT True Colors that y'all do every Thursday. You don't have a "lime" cuz do you?

Heya M&M,
OK, time for a reality check. If a color isn't on a Wonder Bread wrapper it isn't a real color. It's some color that a girl or a fashion designer made up. Lime is NOT a color, it's citrus fruit with a lot of vitamin C. Limes were used by the British Royal Navy to combat scurvy, hence British sailors were called "Limies." Youse must have the only "Lime" cuz in existence and it looks like a good cuz; shouldn't y'all have a bad cuz? Our dad was in the Navy and he knows a poem (maybe it was a LIMErick) about a girl from Natucket but mom said we can't put it in your blog comment. What'd y'all have for dinner tonight, well at least what was the 1st course?
