Neighborhood Friendly Yard Structures

Call me a woman but these little storage houses are too cute to not notice!!!
Imagine having a storage shed that matches your house... :)

This structure is parked at the BlockBuster on Rangeline, in Joplin.

Feel free to go take a look - you can contact the manufactorer/owner from there (info on the structure) or leave a comment on my blog!

The Gross Clinic
- Thomas Eakins 1897

I've always loved art and this painting fascinates me! These guys are operating on a boy’s leg… They are all wearing black suites, without surgical cloves (are you kidding me).

This is how they operated in the 1800’s – no wonder so many people died of infections…

At this hour efforts are being made to keep this masterpiece at The Philadelphia Museum of Art. It is for sale at the price of $68 million

If you find this interesting go read the 99% I did not tell you about Thomas Eakins’s The Gross Clinic.

After a stormy day yesterday - we whoke up to a WHITE, Bright & Shiny earth - It is so beautiful outside. Martin and I went outside and as he was scraping the snow and ice from our car, I tried (without succes) to build a snowman...

I did however make my first snow angel!!! - This is True, for our country does not have ice storms or snow like this.

Rudi met the snow head on. It did not take her long to be covered in snow. Luckely she had an orange jacket on, so we would not lose her... It was so funny to see her out there totaly covered in snow.

I hope you have a great snowy December 1st!
