I'm having some issues with my photos, so the ones I took of the two rainbow blankets I crocheted this week and a pair of socks that I finished will have to wait. I took the photos yesterday but for some reason they won't upload. I'm done complaining about it though and will just have to make do with what I have. :-)
Have any of you heard of Wall Drug in South Dakota? Well, although we have driven by it dozens of times, I think we just stopped once before, years ago. We decided to have a late lunch/early dinner there on our way home from Nebraska. They are famous for their free ice water...in fact it's what put them on the map for hot, weary travelers back in the day when Mt. Rushmore first opened. Here's my handsome guy with his free ice water. The cups are small so we refilled them several times.
One of the first glimpes of our beloved mountains on the way home. These are the Grand Teton's in Wyoming. The first view of the mountains of the west always make us feel as if we're almost home.

Look at the goodies that Debra, "Araignee" on my sidebar sent to me. She made the cutest card and the soap she makes smell wonderful. Thank you so much for your generousity again Debra.
In fact, our old neighborhood was evacuated earlier this week because of a wildfire. And we lived in town! Only one home actually burned before it was contained at around 130 acres but it is still not under control. Many more fires are burning right now. Please pray for relief from the heat and for the safety of the firefighters all over the western U.S. right now. We need rain. It's not unusual to go from mid-June to September without any rain, but everything is so dry from past droughts.
I hope you are all well and enjoying your summer, or winter down under, (Shaz). Have a lovely weekend and be safe.
