Hello my friends ...
I hope it's as beautiful at your house as it is at mine!!
It is PERFECT golfing weather and that's good because July 31 - August 4 is the PGATour - 2013 World Golf Championship - Bridgeport Invitational being played only a couple of miles away from my house at the Firestone Country Club right here in Akron, OHIO. And yes, the BIG NAMES are there ... including Tiger Wood.
Hmmmm ... wonder why he wasn't at Bob Evans for breakfast this morning? LOL! We were there and many, many other folks who were getting an early start before the golfing began. NO ... we didn't go over ... can actually see it better from my livingroom and don't have to deal with the crowds.
While making lunch I could hear a noise so stepped out onto the deck to see the MetLife blimp and another plane with some sort of advertisement circling over the golf course. So, I grabbed my phone and snapped a couple of photos. The Goodyear blimp is docked not far from us but you don't see it out too often. Although with the weather getting cooler, they'll have it out and getting it ready to cover the football games. That too is a really cool sight to see ... it's HUGE!! And, one of the pilots actually lives right down the street! I should introduce myself and ask him to take me for a ride! LOL!

I don't have any cards to share with you today but I am working on several things for the upcoming week. Just thought I'd share some LIFE stuff with you today.
Earlier in the week we took a drive to visit friends who still live in the 'ole neighborhood in Toledo, Oh and had a wonderful time. One of the places we used to enjoy going to for a REALLY GOOD meal and a piece of pie is over at Schmucker's Restaurant on Reynolds Rd. They just celebrated being in business 65 years and FINALLY we took the time to pop over for lunch. OMG ... it was SO GOOD!!!!
Everything is HOMEMADE and check out this selection of pies:
Needless to say, hubby and I both had their Rhubarb pie (the best we've ever found) but our friend Mark Beelman decided to try the daily pie special which was BANANA SPLIT PIE ...
OMG ... it was HUGE!!
SO ... if you are ever in that area, be sure to check them out ... you won't be sorry! But I must warn you, there might be a line OUT THE DOOR because they can probably only seat about 30 people (including sitting at the counter) and they are ALWAYS packed at the prime eating times. This is true Down Home Cooking!!
Well if I'm going to have those cards ready to share with you this week, I'd better get back to the crafting table! Thanks for stopping by and as always . . .
