THE END OF THE SEASON

HARVESTED BOXES OF DRIED ZINNIA'S FOR MYSELF AND FRIENDS FOR NEXT YEARS GLORY!

100 FT LONG BED PROVIDES LOTS OF FLOWERS TO SHARE!
 
STARTED BACK ADDING CINNAMON TO MY COFFEE BEFORE THE HOT WATER FOR A YUMMY FALL TASTE!

WE CAME VERY CLOSE TO BEING THE WORLD SERIES CHAMPS HERE IN K.C., MO.!   LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE  I WAS WEARING MY BLUE!

AND FLYING THE COLOR!

AND ADDING BLUE EVERYWHERE!

HUSBAND, MAURICE WAS HONORED RECENTLY  FOR 53 YEARS MEMBERSHIP IN THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF LETTER CARRIERS. HE STARED CARRYING THE MAIL IN  K.C.,MO. IN JULY OF 1961 AND RETIRED IN OCTOBER 1992 WITH 36 1/2 YEARS SERVICE

WAS GOOD TO SEE THEY STILL CARE FOR THEIR RETIREES!

THE END OF FALL ON OUR NORTH ROAD WHERE MAURICE WALKS EVERY OTHER DAY.

SOMETHING NEW! JUST GOT MARY ENGELBREIT'S PRECIOUS CHILDRENS BOOK IN THE MAIL!

SO CUTE! CAN'T WAIT TO COZY UP WITH A CUP OF CINNAMON COFFEE AND ENJOY!

FINALLY GOT A FRAME ON IT AND READY TO DELIVER!

MORE BOARDS GETTING THEIR UNDERCOAT OF PAINT READY TO CREATE ON!  HOPE YOUR SEASON IS ENDING WITH NEW PROJECTS READY FOR YOU TO JUMP ON TOO!

Loved seeing all you've been up to, Marlynne. Our Cardinals had lost their games, so we were rooting for our Royals. They're still champs!

My daddy was a mail carrier when I was born in 1961 in Columbia. He did other jobs as I grew up (sherriff's deputy, policeman, detective) but later returned to the USPS. My brother is 51 and decided this is his last year to be the ?union? ?president? at the Columbia USPS where he's worked at least 25 years. (Both Dad and brother are US Marines.). You're right, it is great to see your husband still being honored for his many years of service as a mail carrier.

Happy week,
Kelley~

Hello Marlynne ,Cogratulations to your husband on his award for service to delivering the mail.
Some big garden beds to tend, must be pretty when they all are in flower.

Hi Marlynne!
I'm so impressed by Maurice's 36.5 years of service with the post office! That's really wonderful!
I'm also curious about what you ladies do with the dried zinnia heads. Love your new painting!
Erica :)
