Yes, I got another 5 to add to my wall at the Antique & Flea Market. It is the giant red gas station #5 on the far left of the photo. Actually we bought a stack of these gas station numbers. We couldn't believe out luck, but then we looked at the price and decided that we could only afford the 5. Several hours later as we walked back to the car, the vendor still had them and made a deal with us. The multi-colored 5 is a canvas John painted for my wall. Love it!
Does it seem to you that the sky is falling? It seems to me that there is just too many bad things happening both by Mother Nature and the bad corporate guys. I wish it would all stop. I remember being told all through school what a great nation we live in and how all the other countries look to us as the most successful and powerful country. Yes, we still have all the luxuries here and free choice, etc, but we seem to have lost our way somehow.
It is difficult to be depressed, though, with the trees green again and all the beautiful spring flowers bursting into bloom. Shallow on my part, but I want to be happy. Life is good for us. We are lucky, very lucky.
