Friday Random Ramblings

It has been absolutely beautiful weather in the Texas Hill Country for the last few days, but cloudy for Friday, and a bit cooler. When you read this, I'll be working on the tree house with hubby as we continue this never ending project.  I'll post a picture later. Roof on today!

1. My son-in-law went hunting in the Dakotas last fall with some friends, and had this pheasant mounted for display among all the other creatures gracing their walls. My hubby who is from South Dakota mentioned that he had hunted so many of these, but never had one mounted.

2. Our friends George and Sue are stopping by this next week for a short visit.  We have been friends for many years and have enjoyed some great time traveling together. We lived just a short way apart in Illinois, and they are also members of the 'Culture club' I wrote about in the fall. They spend the month of January in Tucson near her sister, and sometimes stop by here for a visit before driving back to Illinois.

3. Our friend Joy knows that hubby collects walruses, so she sent us this picture puzzle for Christmas. This was a nightmare to put together, but we finished it last night. My problem with these is that I can't leave the puzzle alone until it's finished, so it takes a lot of my time!

4. Daughter #2 (Angel) is moving into a house from an apartment, so we are planning to help them get things put in place on Saturday. The will have everything moved in, but won't have all the dishes put away, etc. Hubby is assigned to hanging pictures. Because of her move, she will miss our visit to the Majestic Theater for the play "Chicago". Daughter #1's SIL is going in her place. Dinner out, then the Theater...doesn't get much better! In case you aren't familiar with this story:

 Set in the legendary city during the roaring “jazz hot” 20s, Chicago tells the story of two rival vaudevillian murderesses locked up in Cook County Jail. Nightclub star Velma’s serving time for killing her husband and sister after finding the two in bed together. Driven chorus girl Roxie’s been tossed in the joint for bumping off the lover she’s been cheating on her husband with. Not one to rest on her laurels, Velma enlists the help of prison matron Mama Morton and slickster lawyer Billy Flynn, who turn Velma’s incarceration into a murder-of-the-week media frenzy, thus preparing the world for a splashy showbiz comeback. But Roxie’s got some of her own tricks up her sleeve…

I've never seen the play, but have seen the movie with Catherine Zeta Jones.

5. And finally (Ta Dah!) the newest picture of the tree house before the roof goes on, the boards are in place and ready to install! Grandson Carson is getting pretty excited, as it finally looks like a house!

Have a wonderful Friday. Life is good!  Linking in today with Tanya at Around Roanoke for Willy Nilly Friday 5.  Check out the other entries!  Thanks for hosting.
