1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 27 Gallery! on: September 12, 2018 11:12:18 AM
Thank you for the birthday wishes, Alexampersandra, and right back at ya!

Just wanted to jump in to say that I'm planning on evacuating away from Hurricane Florence sometime this week, and I hope anyone else in her path stays safe!
Ugh, facebook helpfully reminded me a year ago, I was evacuated for Hurricane Irma with my LV in tow. Stay safe, Alexampersandra!!
OMG It was my LV with you during Irma and now Alexampersandra has mine when Florence comes to visit.  Am I a jinx?  Shocked

Today we drove to Chester, IL to see a transport ship that was at Normandy during WWII.


Popeye's creator is from Chester, and he's even on their police patch.


Rey helped celebrate my birthday.  Here he is on the official HB tablecloth along with pies my mom made.


Rey also helped me dye fabric and made friends with a praying mantis.



Last but not least, we got over 6" of rain in 24 hours when the remnants of Gordon came through.

Rey and I are still here.  Roll Eyes  We voted in the primary,


did a little bull riding in the pool,


had a rare chilly August morning (this was the indoor temp!),


saw a statue being moved on a trailer,


and met Smedley and Darth for dinner.

... I have been to the dr 2x now for female problems and may end up again. I was misdiagnosed in Urgent Care so given wrong meds, the went back last week and started day 5 of antibiotic but still have symptoms *although results of a test *may* show I need a different antibiotic). ..
I hope everything gets sorted out soon!  The only thing worse than not feeling well is not knowing why or not being able to fix it.  Sad

We had primary elections yesterday, so Rey came with me to vote.


After doing our civic duty we went to the Loop in University City to pick up some concert tickets for Saturday night.  These totems are along a walkway from parking to the main road.


Buying tickets can make a girl work up a powerful thirst, so we headed to Fitz's for lunch.  They make several varieties of soda and use a bottling assembly from the 40's.  There's a glass wall so you can watch them make it, but they weren't doing anything yesterday.  Here's a picture of their painted side wall instead.

We attended a Jarts tournament.  Even though we lost our heat it was still a lot of fun.

I'm taking a wild guess here... "Jarts" = Javelin Darts??

I'm not sure why they're called that, but I would buy your explanation.  Basically they are big lawn darts that are no longer manufactured because so many people injured themselves.  Duh!  Giant metal projectiles require care and supervision.  You have to find them at estate sales or antique malls.

I'm impressed; really well done!

Ok... let's just assume my "photo silence" didn't happen the last 5-6 weeks...
Um, yeah.  Me, too.  Anyway, it seems like Rey has mostly seen lunches with friends, but a few other things have happened.  Most unfortunately was this blowout on the highway.


The Arch grounds and museum had a massive renovation, so I took Rey to see the new museum.


We have an outdoor municipal theater that is celebrating it's 100th season this summer.  I went with a friend to see "Annie", and can you believe this is the first time either of us had seen it?

... my original movers cancelled on me the day they were supposed to pick up, and I had to scramble to make new plans...
OMG that is horrible!  As if moving to another state isn't stressful enough you had to deal with that as well.

Where does one get the colored glass?

If you have a Hobby Lobby in your area that's a relatively inexpensive place to start.  You can also Google "stained glass supplies" to find a local shop that will have a bigger selection.  If there's nothing nearby you can buy online at Delphi, Armstrong, or Youghiogheny.  This is by no means an exhaustive list but some of my faves.  Have fun!
