What Bill made

My old plastic Adirondack chair broke so Bill built me a QUEEN chair.  I'm planning on painting a rose or 2 on the back before he stains it.  Will post more pics when that is done.  Ain't it purdy?
All painted.. next is Stain and varathane

Time flies when your putting stuff Most of July I spent painting the rec room.  A little every couple days.  I found a crochet shawl pattern I like and am on my 3rd.  They are fast and easy. I plan on putting them in my "OH CRAP, I need a gift" box.  Its called the Aurelie Shawl and its on Ravelry. This is the picture from the pattern but my first one was a similar color. I like the butterflys down the back.

Found out after much nervousness and hand wringing that I DON'T have to sign up for Social Security this year.  Not till next.....I have to be 65 +11mo. crazy huh.  But I have to sign up for Medicare now.  So made an appt for that since the website kept locking up on me.  They are very helpful at the 1-800 number.  He tried to walk me threw the website but it locked up twice so we gave it up. Have no idea what I will do with part ABCor D.  I'll deal with that later. 

Jerico and Gf Katie are back at work on their seperate ships. Funny how they will be working the same area of the world but not be together.  Its only for a month this time. Who knows .. Maybe they will see each other and get to wave. 

On books.....I'm slowly working my way threw - Jim Butcher's series- The Dresden files. I won't put up pics of the books because there are something like 15 of them.  I'm on 6...since last month.  Ya I'm liking them alot.  Book club has a new book for us this month too but for the life of me I can't remember what it is.  I haven't read it yet, better do that.  I did get it on the Kindle tho.  THANK YOU Marshall for my Kindle Fire. I never expected to love it so MUCH!

On a family note....this about says it: Those are my 3 silly
