Yep Prineville, is over run with people DD told me today the Portland news was saying they were all out of rental cars.  Not sure what they would do, people flying in and no cars to rent to get to the eclipse viewing area. 

We went to Idaho today shopping and the traffic coming from California was surprising all loaded with gear to camp and watch the eclipse.  Glad we went today, going to stay off the road now until next Wednesday or Thursday and they should all be home.

Yes, they had the thread I needed, Thel. I bought two spools, and blew through the first spool in no time. I am on the second now. I also used up a yellow spool today, and luckily I had a second spool! 

I saw that on the news too, Cindy! Ranchmom is almost famous now! 

I just can't imagine what it was really like, Thel. I bet it was quite the experience. I bet you are glad you were there. You crack me up too. Oh yeah, he's sooo flexible. 

I found another fabric to use for the rest o f the blocks. I think they will be good, and not look like I ran out and had to find something else. As soon as I get a few finished, I will get a pic to see what everyone thinks.

Ouch,  Mr Bullfrog is sleeping on his bad foot.   He must be pretty flexible to get that foot up under his body Froggie.     I crack me up. 

Wow,  that is a beautiful tat Cora.  She sure has found a great artist. 

From my experience with tattoos,  how painful it is depends a lot of where you have it; the more meaty the area is the less it hurts.  places like hands, wrists, feet hurt more (for me anyway)  I have a partial "sleeve" on one leg and it was done in more than one sitting. Life got in the way and I never did get it finished.  I think they usually are.   Mine is all falling leaves in foliage colors and stems connecting them.  No where near as impressive as that beautiful elephant and rose.

That's pretty much the method I use to finish off binding.  I really like it.  

WOW,  what an eventful day in your life Froggie.   Wow,  thanks for reminding me of what I was doing at this time in my life in 1969.  Woodstock sure was quite the experience !! 

Yah on playing golf Rita.  I bet that feels real good.  And hubby is going to play with nephew too.

OH Boy,  Only 1 more page to read.

Saw on the noon news that the little town of Prineville, Oregon, near Ranchmom, is already being inundated with people. 30 miles worth of traffic backed up!

Oh goodness Mary Alice.  I really don't get real excited about uninvited guests and then ones that over stay their welcome (that they didn't have in the first place).   Geeze.  I've heard on TV that there is some class action law suit about issues related to Round Up. You might wanna check that out. 

Nice froggie Kim

Wow,  what a special wedding that will be Cindy.  Hope everyone still has good eyesight at the end of the day.  

SO glad your back is feeling better Froggie.  What good news!  That's a LOT of rain. 

The eclipse watchers sure can create a problem.  It's supposed to be 100% in this area also.  The city of Columbia (30 minutes south) already has people moving in.  I'm glad there is nothing around here to attract people to want to stay in this little town.   I will be staying inside and watching it on TV.  Sounds like everyone on the ranch is enjoying the cooler weather ranchmom.  

On to the next page.  3 more pages to go

Well,  I'm gonna try to catch up.  I don't know why I haven't felt chatty.  Seems like every time I start to read, something interrupts me .  

It's sunny and bright here today.  We had heavy rain all day yesterday so everything is nice and green. 

That sure is a lot of thread Froggie.  Can't wait to see the end result.  Did you find what you needed at B sew? 

My niece in law has family that owns one of the sporting lodges somewhere in AK,  I forget just where but people spends thousands of $$  to go there on hunting and fishing expeditions.  I remember my brother being amazed at the various forms of transportation that were needed to get there.   Blue sure is a well travelled cat.  It's good that all is going well Carol Ann

Well,  on to the next page.  Only 4 more to go.

It's coming along nicely Froggie.

Quiet place here today. I've been working on baby-to-be's quilt. Not enough done to show anything yet though. Boy it's tedious work attaching ruffles to six inch sides of a block.

OHNO, Kathleen, the baby was drinking and driving. You crack me up. We are sick. Thanks for the comment on my day of days that I missed reading. You crack me up again. I will keep you up on the surgery decision. 

That elephant looks like it's charging right off her arm, so realistic. It's gorgeous. It is big. I also love the rose. I always love roses. 

DGS1's tattoo on his foot is called watercolor, it has so many pretty colors. It's in honor of his Momma and it's a turtle. I don't think I have a pic of it. Nope don't see it in my pics. 

I worked on my blocks today, I am finished with the main layout. I don't like it 6 X 4 blocks. I don't have enough of my background fabric to make it 6X6. I may see if I have a similar batik to make it bigger.
