~ Red White & Blue ~

Happy 4th Everyone,
 I hope you're having a splendid celebration. I pulled some pictures from the archives this week to join in on the parties. Most of you know I've been dealing with the latest catastrophe around here. A little update:
Serve Pro has their equipment in here drying everything up. I met with the adjuster, have a few more meetings with him. Now the waiting game begins. The shop and office is in total disarray, all in all it could have been a lot worse. Life goes on. 
 Nothing says the 4th like red white and blue.
Remember the days of buying pop in a bottle, usually out of an old soda pop machine? My daddy used to have one in his gas station, those bottles slid over and you lifted them up. Talk about the good 'ole days.
 A cream pitcher from my collection holds daisies, picks to mimic fireworks and our American flag.




 Hooray for the Red White and Blue!

Oh, I remember those soft drink machines! My Uncle Odell's store had one, and nothing tasted better on a hot day than an ice-cold Coke from the machine! I enjoyed seeing your festive table for the Fourth!

A lovely bouquet of flowers. That table looks very inviting and festive.
Happy 4th of July.

Enjoyed seeing the rerun. Yes - I do remember the glass bottles of coke @ 5cts, and thought the world came in an end when they went up to 10cts. Oh the days.
Have a happy/fun and safe 4th !

Hi Lynne,
Just went thru your blog and saw all the mishaps you have been thru. All at once, never in our control. But I sure like your 4th tablescape. The tablecloth is beautiful, and your layers of dishes are perfect.

Great spot for a table for two. Love the table cloth.
Did you put peanuts in your Coke? :-)

Your photos are great to me. What lens did you use? Hope things settle down for you. So sorry for your problems. I enjoyed the reprise and remember it before. Also, remember coke machines and cokes for 5cents and when they went up to 6 cents.
