About noon on Saturday had the granddaughters visit, and so had lunch ready for them. They are fun to be around, and we had a fun time while their mother and her brother did some more looking around for a place to have my 50th celebration. When she returned, we had a lovely visit before later going to dinner. They are like having a mini tornado visit. Never a dull moment!!!! I really have enjoyed having them around a bit more than usual. They are so busy with school work and their various music and dance lessons that it is not always possible. My daughter brought a blueberry bush for me, and I got that planted as well. Hopefully the rain will come now and it will begin to grow well. Perhaps next year I will get enough to make a blueberry tart. My daughters favorite. I heard from my good friend that moved to S. Carolina yesterday, it was nice to hear from her and know that she likes her new place. Was a bit concerned that she wouldn't like her move. :-) I also went to an estate sale yesterday late morning. Should have gone earlier, but still managed to snag a few bargains!!! For a dollar and a half I got a table cloth, six hankies, three dresser scarves, a beautiful luster bowl with roses and an aluminum tray!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think I did well~~~~~~~~~~Antique Rose

Last evening, my husband and I went to my daughters house. She fixed a yummy dinner of Chili Verde and trimmings!!!!!!!!!! So good!!!! What a cook she has become. The occasion was a music festival district wide of the bands, orchestras, and choirs of the various middle and high schools in the Tracy unified school district. Wow!!!!!!! it was so good, I loved all the different songs that were played. Made me smile and made me tap my toes!!! Each one did separate pieces, then at the end all played and sang together!!!!! I hated for it to end, I enjoyed it so much!!! Three granddaughters played and sang in this event. I was so proud and impressed by their performance. :-) Can't wait for the next one in May and the dance recital!!!!!!!!!!! So lucky to have such beautiful and talented granddaughters!!!! Antique Rose

Hello, yesterday was a fun day, going to my daughter's for dinner and then a play. The play was the High School's last play of the year, called Les Miserables, I think I got that right! Anyway, I enjoyed it, and being with the grands, one of which played the music section. She plays the Oboe and Piccolo. It was a long 3 hrs for her!! I get ahead of myself!! The dinner was sooooo yummy!! Baby back ribs, corn on the cob, salad and rice. She is such a good cook!!!! Looking forward to my next time over there when we go see the District Music Festival, and all three granddaughters will be in the event. One in the Chorus, one in the band(flute),and one in the Orchestra(violin), such a treat for me!!!! We went a couple of years ago, and really enjoyed it. Today, they are coming here to visit, and we will celebrate the youngest granddaughter's birthday. We'll go to a local Mexican restaurant (her choice) for that. Should be fun. Perhaps we will get to go to a Spring Open House at a local town, my daughter usually misses. Later~~~~~Antique Rose

Hello again. I welcomed the weekend, I was tired and needed to sleep in! Well, I guess you call sleeping till seven o'clock late for me, as usually get up at five am during the week. :-) I had a flea market to go too, then an anniversary celebration after that. The day started off quite cold, even had ice on the car!!! It really didn't get very warm later, but at least thought it would be warmer inside for the get together!!! I found a really nice shell box at the flea. Hadn't found one in a while.
After coming home and grabbing a hot cup of coffee and relaxing for a bit. We got ready for the anniversary celebration. I dressed warm, and it is a good thing I did. They left doors open on either side of the room, and I was quite cold by the time I left. It was good to see our friends and the happy couple !!! Fifty years is a long time to be happily married!!! Their two daughters put the affair on, and not only were the speakers fun to listen too, the food was yummy as well. We have one coming up in August, hopefully it will come off as nicely!!! It will just be family, but that adds up to quite the number!! That is one reason I hope that all the dental work will be finished. :-) I heard from a friend that just moved to South Carolina. It was fun to hear her voice and know that she is doing fine and likes her new home. Antique Rose

Hello, well I had another implant today, and it went well. Doctor said that mine from last week were looking good and that I was a fast healer. I am finished with implants now, and have to wait a certain amount if time(usually four months) before the next step. I have a feeling it won't be quite as long as that!!! Anyway, I am on my way to having a beautiful set of teeth by the fall!!! That will be nice. It has been sometime since I could say that!!! With my 50Th anniversary coming up, I look forward to having a beautiful picture, with a big smile!!!!
Yesterday was another successful Antique club meeting. The ladies I chose to be hostesses did an outstanding job with the decorations(St Paddy's Day) and the food was excellent!! Great chicken salad , egg salad and turkey croissants for the tea sandwiches and Potato salad, plus two great Jello salads completed the luncheon. Well, of course there was cookies, and pastries too! Gotta have those to complete the picture, plus they go well with the tea and coffee. We had an excellent speaker on Victorian interiors and the paints that were used. A very interesting talk. You just never know what you will learn about our various speakers. We are usually pleased. Antique Rose

I have not been able to be on a computer for about 9 days!! First, my computer stopped working again, after having a new hard drive! So had to buy another one! Hopefully this one is not a lemon!
It was in the shop lots of times over the four years I had it!! I had implant surgery on this past Tuesday, and did not feel like setting it up, and I thought I couldn't so didn't tackle it until this morning. Well, surprised myself, and got it done!:-) I feel good about that. I had contacted a guy to do it for me, but he never called back! Really annoying, but at least now I know I can do it, and glad I wasn't out anymore cost.
I now have five implants with the last one to be put in this coming weds, oh joy! I look like I have been in a fight, bruises and very sore gums, but at least I got to eat somewhat normally today! After eating soft, soft foods for four days it was a welcome change. I had been home bound for this week, no walking, etc. So when my hubby offered to take me to one of my favorite places, I said a resounding, Yes!! On the way there stopped at a Discovery Shop and found two aluminum trays. Everything in the whole shop was one half off. Whoopee!! Then some really pretty rose plates in a set, but missing some of the pieces. I loved them, and will use them for everyday. I won't feel too bad if they get broken down the road, as they were such bargains. Then it was on to the favorite store. There I found a beautiful rose picture and a pretty bird figurine. I feel quite lucky!! I can now put photos on computer again, so will have to take some pictures of my treasures soon. Antique Rose
