Mildred, Mildred, Mildred...beautiful stories. I just love to hear the stories you tell of your childhood. Please, oh please, tell the dead body story about the cocky guy with your Dad. I just love that one.

Down to business. You are no longer allowed to give me any grief about my, "mammoth" posts--EVER! You are now in my league, congratulations on your first mammoth post!

Now, go wash your hands. you should wash your hands after such excursions. Must I go over the hand washing rules everytime!


What cool finds & great stories. I love the dice from the stardust. WAY COOL! Had to laugh about washing your hands :)

Such interesting goodies you have Donna! What a fabulous story of your Dad. An admirable man for sure and what accomplishments he had! Now I understand the picture of the lady with the shotgun at that top of your blog..hehe!

My Dad was also a policeman... there is a definate pride that one feels to know that their Father believed so strongly in upholding the law. Also... he was (is) one protective Daddy! lol

Donna I love hearing your stories! You are a wealth of information and can't wait to hear about your dad's 'dead body' and emergency landing stories!

Donna- Loved your post. My husband is a police officer and in the airforce. He dreams of getting his pilots license and is obsessed with any aircraft. He has worked on a project for years to get a helicopter at his agency.
My husband would have been attached to your Dad's hip, if they had met.


Wow, you have so many fantastic stories of your family. I grew up with a Mom who was in advertising and remember well the rolls of rubylith and pica poles. I even learned to cut rubylith and work the process camera. I think my Mom would still be using it if I hadn't forced a computer into her hands. LOL What fun memories and even better treasures!


What beautiful stories your treasures divulge!
Can't wait to see what you will create Donna!


Looks like a wonderful selection of goodies!!! Bet you will be making some really amazing things!!!


no pica pole here but i do still have two pica and elite rulers :-) i am a cool kid too :-) (i remember rubylith but my favorite thing was the waxer for pasting up stuff - gosh i wonder if anyone still uses a waxe anymore - ahhhhh the fun these kids miss using computers dontcha think?!?)
i love that brooch and you know i love the stories - tell some more please... but wash your hands first before Will has a cow :-)


Oh my! I LOVE your blog---you inspire, you make me laugh and you bring tears to my eyes all at the same time!!
