Happy Pink Saturday!  Be sure and stop by Beverly's How Sweet The Sound and check out the blogs that are posting for Pink Saturday.  They are some truly awesome blogs!!  I'm introducing you to the two newest members of our Halloween Collection! lol We've named them Jolly and Molly.  We decorate for Halloween almost as much as we do for Christmas, so things that are out during the year all get put away from Oct. till January.  It's a lot of fun.  Keeps the dogs on their toes.  They have to have their time bark at the new things that we get. 

This is a picture I just love.  It's my Great Aunt Jo in a sailor suit.  If you look closely you can see a bag of Bull Derm peaking out of her pocket. lol She was quite a lady.  She survived the San Francisco Earthquake back in 1906;  She was the first woman to ever ride cross county in pants on the train;  She started the waitress union in Southern CA and came up to N. CA to start it here.  That is only a few of her accomplishments.  She traveled all over the US.  I sure do miss her, even to this day.  We lost her when she turned 93  I believe it was in 1977.
