I am a paper keeper, if you have seen my posts you know I have kept cards and letters for the last 60 years. I kept all of my childrens creations from childhood and created scrapbooks for them when they became adults.
I saved this Birthday Party invite from 1964, going through some of these I thought it was perfect for Miss Beverly's Decade Birthday.
The party goers are both in pink!! They are drinking sodas and playing happy birthday on the record player.
Hope you have a fabulous birthday Beverly and I'm also featuring a Precious Moment I recieved from a good friend on my birthday a few years ago.
We are at the end of the alphablet for ABC Wednesday and I have decided on the word Zany.
Our city of Kansas City is one ZANY place to be right now. The whole area (both sides of the state line) is full of ZEAL for the 83rd Allstar Baseball Game. Kansas City has been preparing for three years for this event.
All week there has been events going on to honor the game. We've had 5K runs, Fanfest where you could go all day and tour special events held by different groups and swing your own bat, get get your favorite players autograph. The Home Run Derby was a great event with Prince Felder winning again this year.
These 1,000 lb statues have been placed in 6 areas of our city. You can purchase mineature statues for a momento.

The fans are very ZEALOUS for the game. Our mascot "Slugger".

Fans trying to catch the ball at the Home Run Derby.
There are community watch parties all over the city--for those who can't afford the tickets.
Tonight at the game on each seat is a white, red or blue T-shirt attached for the ticket-holder to wear.When photographed the stands are suppose to look like the American Flag
The ZINGER---the winner of this game tonight gets home field avantage in the World Series this fall.
I'll be watching on TV, but wish I could be there.
Last fall I purchased a gourd for the purpose of making a birdhouse. I dried it all winter in a dry, cool spot, I chose my garage. I finally got around to drilling a hole for the opening and and painting it. Be sure it is totally dry--shake it to hear the seeds jingling.
I sprayed the gourd with a primer first and then used a latex outdoor enamel spray paint to cover.
I hung it on our Weeping Spruce tree and I like the blue and green combination.
We just returned from vacation in Colorado and going through my pictures, this one really stands out. We were at a rodeo for my DIL's charity "Buena Vista Pregnancy Center". My three grandchildren are participating in a race with their wooden horses. All three of them are together on the right - all running with their same leg out front. It was a fluke that I shot it so well!!!!
Notice all the BLUE tennis shoes and denim shorts!
They all had entry numbers pinned for all the events.
It was a very fun event. This is my favorite pic of the day and this one I am going to enlarge.
