Good evening, Ladies. I know you share the sadness of the anniversary of 9/11. It is hard to believe it is 12 years since that terrible day.
Today a TV commentator talked about what vivid memory of that day stays with him.
There are so many…first, I remember the feeling of not knowing if my son was on one of the planes, as he was flying from Logan that morning.
The hours of not knowing, and the relief when he was finally heard from.
The sickening feeling for all those who never did get that “I am safe” call. Or our dear friend getting the I am ok call, after her dh and another officer put the children from the day care center in the WTC in shopping carts and brought them to safety. He went back in to direct others out, and perished.
Another memory I can never erase … the train parking lots filled with the cars of those who left for work, and never returned. It was a close up and personal pictograph for each community around NYC, representing those lost.
The pages and pages of obituaries for weeks stays with me too. Attending funerals, and then another when the body was found.
Let us always remember the near 3000, the moms, dads, sisters, and brothers. The children who died that day, and the children born after , who never knew their dads.
May they rest in peace, and may their families be comforted by our remembering their loved ones.
Tonight I am showing 2 tables that were linked to Let’s Dish that you may have missed. I thought the theme was just adorable, so if your didn’t see them, take a look at the full post.
The first is from The Welcomed Guest, Katie and Pat.
For those of you who love your doggies, you shouldn’t miss it. I don’t love doggies, but still thought it was doggone cute.. complete with fire hydrant salt and peppers!
Another with a theme that will make you smile is from Denise at
I know Denise from pre blogging when we both frequented the Holidays forum at That Home Site, a Garden web forum.
She goes all out for her theme tables, actually building the table!
The theme was Zoe’s Diner, complete with a table juke box!
She is just so clever, so if you missed it, take a look.
Sharing a bargain I found on line at BBB.com
.99 and free shipping. Looks like fish bones to me, lol, maybe a good Halloween table, with black ? They are porcelain, marked 7.99. Well…,that would be a NO, but for .99 I will have fun with them!
My oven broke, 12 year old Thermador double wall oven. I don’t know if it is worth trying to get it fixed. It has been a nightmare since we got it, 15 service calls in the first 2 years, they replaced the entire inner workings!
I have been researching, know I don’t want a Thermador, and I had problems with my Bosch dishwashers, so I don’t want that either. I have to stay with the same dimensions. I have been spending a lot of time trying to figure out what to do. HD doesn’t install, so I would have to find an electrician to do that, $$$$!
Any of you have electric double convection ovens you love?
Remember the APPLE theme challenge 2 weeks from tonight! You don’t have to have apple dishes, apples are red, yellow and green, so you have leeway!
We did our annual apple pick with the gkids Sunday, so I have been using my handy dandy apple peeler, thumbs up on this one!
Made a some apple crisp in a Ball jar. It is reclaimed from a candle!
