Bridle Path Art- Craft and Tack Festival

Bridle Path my community here in Simi Valley. We do have many Activities and the one I got caught up in this year is our 1st Art, Craft and Tack Festival. Jill was the Chairperson and she gathered up some great vendors for our 1st event.

This is a crack of dawn picture of Jill as she started our set up. Jill is a Master Potter in our neighbor hoodie. Her work is really very unique and professional.

Well this post is just to introduce you to some of the unique crafter's in our neighborhood.

The Crafty Cowgirls came in a group.
Some Bridle path ladies that use their extra time to make great stuff!

Bubbie's Baby stuff had a cute selection of things also.

And our own Debbie helped and showed off all her 4-H kids.

They had chicken's, goats . We also had roping lessons for the children. That was fun.

Good Food was baked by our local 4-H also. Did you say Sugar ? Indeedy,  kept me going all day!

Boots and ropes. This cowboys had so many interesting things for indoor or outdoor decorating of the ranch! Oh Norm

Halla for the Canarella Local Jam's. Yummy

Our local Barn Girl. This woman provides information for barn's in our community. Also a rep for The American Paint Horse.

And then these young good lookin' boy. Well who cares they were so cute.

Local dog's came by to say Hi like Murph and Scout! And neighbor's rode their horses down as to not miss out on anything that day.

It was a great success and a fun day for the Bridle path community . Hope we wee you next year and we can enjoy this beautiful neighborhood we live in.

Coffee Caution - Moody Handle

 Ok so yesterday my doorbell rings and my first thought is "God Damit the BBQ is not till 6:30 Why there is even a nice note on the F#%@%&#*# door. Ok answer it Lani !

Open and What the Heck there is Jayne Stepp with a new Coffee maker. Long story short. I had an older version 28 years older with a glued handle and a note saying when in use to " Play nice Moody Handle" Well last week at the Bluegrass someone was having so much fun (Hick up) even the gorilla glue did not help. So yes I was a bit upset ...... ended up laughing with Jayne and Doyle that it even lasted so long 28 years shit even it was like loosing a child!

Thank you Doyle and Jayne even though I know it was all Jayne. That is Jayne so do you not wish you had a Jayne! Na na na xoxo

Bingo was her name Ohhhhhh

 Yes this is the face of Bingo and her name will remain anonymous JENNI . The story goes that I am sitting with a few friends and we start talking about Bingo and how vicious some of the people can be.

Oh giggle , giggle and the next thing I know like a nightmare I am there among them. I went to bingo.

Now in my own mind I did attend a small gathering of people for Bingo a few months a go for a fund raiser for a local Horse Ranch. My neighbor Lisa and I went and it was fun. She won everything they had but gave it to the kid's next to us! Go figure ! We discussed attending a local Bingo but nothing came of it. I suppose I was just to busy with life to really look for a local game.

But then it happened a group of 4 or more decided to go and like back in the day when if they wanted a helper my hand shot up like a kite on a windy day. Shit not again!

I do have to say this is not a bad deal but there is so much more then what you see on the surface and in the next few weeks I will let you know all the dirty little Bingo Secret's.

Look how serious she is !!!!! 

Ignore the George W. Bush cards on the table and focus on Opie the number caller!

The balls are in place .... Opie is putting his head set on the crowd is settling down into there chairs. You could hear a pin drop ....

And their off      !!!!!!!

This is a nice paced Bingo game my last experience was to fast to much for my ole' brain to keep up. I attribute this to my not winning. But I always have an opinion or reason that anything happens and it is not my way!

Here are a few of the things that keep me going back. New idea's an old sock on a bottle of water. Great DIY and way to keep your hand dry. Go Grama! And she won $150.00 ........... shit!

Here is Opie's replacement when his mouth gets dry!

And I look across the room and a woman looks like me in 30 years. Bun and a barret twice the size of my regular one's. I should look so cute!

Jenni and I have made no new friends'. Maybe because at about 9:37 we break into giggle mania thee tension and salt and sugar highs take us over. Let's see last week it was that I kept pounding my dauber on a sheet so people would think I got lot's of number's. Ok we thought it was funny. And this week well you had to be there!

PLEASE come join us! xoxo

Easter 2015

Does it seem like Easter is a little early this year? Must be me but then Pa had a puzzled look on his face when I told him the Easter Bunny will be here next Sunday!

 Yup that would be Judy the "Easter Girl" She loved Easter and all thing's Bunny. The excitement took her over. Seriously I am surprised she did not buy a big Easter Bunny Costume for Mark.

Look at that cake LUCKY F***** Bunny! It was not his birthday for gosh sakes. Well Judy has since passed and with that I am making Easter National Judy Day. So there ya go don't say I never did anything nice! 

And once she was done with us as you can see everyone was exhausted and slept all the way home!  I am telling you more action and food than Thanksgiving.

So with that this week looks like a good week to get the last of my Garden starter's in. My friend Jules got me 2 beautiful tomato plants from Tomatomania. That is a yearly tomato fest and it is every where so look in your area for Tomatomania.

This Saturday I am off to spend my Passover/Easter with Ms. Independence.
Once I saw those carrot's she grew I was very proud but quite jealous. Mine look like lil fat crooked thumbs. But I know we will have a great time. Sunday will spend the day at Alameda Swap Meet. Heaven on cement. Hopefully Nicole will be with us. 

Oh and when I broke the news to Pa that I was going to be in
Oakland for Easter was he sad. NO he asked what time he would be dropping me at the airport. Seriously!

So then there was 2015

Yet another year when we ask God what do you have in store for me this year. Yes I know it's March and April is right around the corner. Time to hide egg's and get the Seder plate ready.

Looks like MS. Independence got a shit load of carrot's mine look like stubby thumbs. I watch this little woman grow every year into this person I am so very proud of. Her style and attitude is something to admire and follow.

I have gotten into a few things this year I am still painting and the class is a hoot. I do not know what I like better the people or the craft! Here are a few and I noticed I sure like the color blue

So my Shelly her cancer is not getting any better but after a 5r day stint in the hospital she is home. I truly hope her heart is in the right place. I know it must be so hard to deal with all this. After being with my Mama and Casey and there cancer road I know tough trip!

It is all in God's Hands !
