Awesome New Book

New books are in at the library.
I picked this one up just to look this morning, read a few words, and was hooked!
I loved The Five People You Meet In Heaven,
but this one is going to be even better, I can tell!

I've almost finished this. One of Preston and Child's better ones.

For you Grisham fans, this is his latest.
A continuation of his first book, A Time To Kill.
Promises to be a good read.

Danielle Steels newest offering.
There's something for everyone this week.
Curl up by the fire with a good book and a cup of coffee and read to your hearts content.

Have a great week,
Dorothy and Ms.Wilma

Christmas Dolls

Look what's at eBay right now.

I'd love to have this Effanbee under my Christmas tree!

Isn't she sweet?

Pretty polka dot tea set from WWII era.

This little red and white dress would be so pretty on Tiny Tears Christmas Day.

All of these dolls are being listed on eBay.

Beautiful green eyes!

Look at these sweet Christmas doxies!

Counting down the days till Thanksgiving!

Lots of cooking and good eating!

Hugs from Dorothy and Wilma

P.S. Wilma did much better at the new house this weekend.
 I took some of her toys with us and that seemed to help.

Have a Vintage Thanksgiving

I am so looking forward to an old-fashioned Thanksgiving this year.
Good food and family gathered round.
I'm tired of politics and bad news, just want some good memories.

Well, this is a picture of our new house in Mississippi.
We finally found a place we liked.

There's a palm tree in the front yard!

This is the back yard. NO FLOWERS! 
You know I'll be busy planting roses and day lilies!
But the back yard has a chain-link fence for Wilma to stay in when she goes out to play!

We took Ms.Wilma down to the beach.

She was not impressed.
Would not go voluntarily to the water!

"I'm not going in that water!"

"Where is the car?"

I don't think I'll ever get too much of this.

This pic is from Pinterest, I don't know who to give credit.
But it is exactly the color of paint we used to paint the new living and dining room this weekend.
I'm sore all over!!

I'm still working till Dec.31, then retirement here I come.
We spend every weekend down there at the new house painting and having fun.
The only problem we've found is Wilma will not go from one room to the other.
She is afraid of something. It may be the floors.
She is used to carpet and there is hardwood there.

Pete said "they say dogs can see ghosts"
Oh great, now I'm scared! 
I hope they're friendly ghosts!

I plan to cook Thanksgiving Dinner at the new place and Christmas too.
Getting exciting......

Lots of new books out right now.
Good reading.

I'm enjoying Charles Krauthammer's new book.

Have a great week!
Hugs, from me and Ms.Wilma
