You can't see it that good in the pictures.....but here is a pair of my brand new HIGH-HEELED boots!!!!!!! Can you see why I'm happy? See, Mom said that I could never wear heels until I was 12, and so since February, we have been on the lookout for cute, not-so-high-heeled shoes, and until just the other day, we have been unsuccessful in this mission. On Friday and Saturday we went to a bunch of yard sales and we were lucky this time by finding rich people, their daughter-in-law(I think) bought these boots and only wore them once or twice before putting them in the yard sale. There were actually two pair....a black pair(as shown above) and an identical set the color of brown. I got them for a REALLY good deal for what the boots are worth.
OK, that behind us, I have a lot to catch up on. Hmmmmm.... let's see. OK....
Ah, yes. The first thing on the list is Tannehill. Ok about a month ago we went on a little visit to a National Park a few miles from where we live called Tannehill. It was a Civil War site where they made iron ammo and weapons. Some places there were actually used as a battle field. Many funny memories rest in our family of Tannehill(does this sound familiar Sis. Kimmi?) The park is a big one and has many festivals and such there from time to time. On this particular trip, it was SUPPOSED to be an "Iron Pour" where they show how blacksmiths melted iron to make the ammo and stuff. Also there are little log cabins that you can go into and in those little cabins there are people that show you how to make things that Civil War people needed back in the day:
THIS IS THE KNIFE MAKER'S SHOP. THE MAN HAD AN ANVIL AND A MINI SLEDGE-HAMMER. WHAT HE DID WAS HE HAMMERED OUT A NAIL ON THE ANVIL WITH THE HAMMER MAKING THE NAIL FLAT. THEN HE SANDED, ETCHED, AND DECORATED THE "KNIFE." HE ALSO MADE LITTLE SHEATHS MADE OUT OF AN OLD LEATHER JACKET, THEN DECORATED THE SHEATHS WITH SHARPIE MARKERS:
AND DAD AND SAM SAT A FEW SEATS BACK. SAM DOES EXIST BY THE WAY, AND I DID GET A PICTURE OF THEM BUT SAM WOULDN'T LET ME POST IT EVEN THOUGH HIS FACE WAS COVERED UP BY HIS COWBOY HAT. BOYS!
Well, I guess that is it. Thanks for reading!!!!!!
