"Happy Hour"

The chain restaurant Steak and Shake has "Happy Hour" from 2 to 4pm and from 2am to 4am every weekday. Normally if I am out and about I get a large diet caffeine free COKE but, today I couldn't help myself. I bought one of was .50 cents and worth every penny. All drinks and ice cream stuff is half off during this time which I think is genius!!! I have been eating at Steak and Shake all my life and I even did a piece of art about it years is in the attic as I type. It is March here in the Midwest but, it sure feels like SUMMER!

and meanwhile back at the FARM.....

I have had these little HO scale minatures for years. I was inspired by a jewelry artist that panstakingly and tiredlessly worked with these tiny little plastic people. He embedded them into epoxy and made his own bezel etc....I want to sell these and sell many. I recently found this affordable way to make and re-sell these great, fun, wacky RINGS for $10- to $14- a piece. I have a bunch of dairy cows. So if you see something here I would be happy to make a special listing for you on my etsy shop.

This years theme for the upcoming Indiana State Fair this August is the year of the Dairy COW. I love the fair!!!!
So FUN!!!

I have lived in INDIANA my whole life. I have never seen a tornado up close and personal. This week the weather folks talked and talked on the news about upcoming severe weather. As a child Spring storms made me nervous as a grown up Spring storms make me nervous. Today we were so thankful that this was the only thing that happened at our house. Just a little hail. Not even enough to make a ding in your car hood. (thanks goodness) Southern Indiana and other states did not have the same outcome. My heart goes out to the good people that have lost love ones and their homes.
Squeeze your kids, spouses, friends and four legged friends a little harder tonight.
