I made some beads today and got them strung on some black cord. They look nice.
Bob bought some Lewis & Clark trading beads today and made a necklace with them. It looks great!
This is my sister Donna! She retired from the Albany County today. She was a Social Worker and worked hard and deserves this new lot in life. I am so proud of her! Love you Donna!
We stopped and talked with Terry and Ron today. All is well at their place. We're happy about that...
We have a craft show to go to tomorrow at the QIA. Then after I need to get some things ordered for my bead making.

I bought a couple of toolboxes today to hold all my new craft hobbies. Knapping tomorrow and glass beading on Friday!!
I found out that I am a Great Aunt again today. My nephew and his wife (Barry and Kerri) had a baby boy last night. They are all doing great...He was 7# 1 oz. and they named him Carson James. Hope to see him this summer...
My sister, Donna, only has 3 days of work left. She will be retiring from the Albany County Health Department as a Social Worker on Friday. She IS counting the days. She is so excited! She will continue to work for the adoption agency that she does part time. I hope to go on some of her out of town home studies with her next summer.

Another beautiful sunset tonight.
This is the nugget Bob found compared to a dime..
While at the rock shop today, one of our friends ,Virgil, from La Posa West was telling us on Monday night someone came knocking on his door asking for a flashlight because he lost his keys in the dark. They gave him one and he asked them if they wanted the flashlight back that night or in the morning. They said morning would be ok. Well, the next morning, they went out and found the flashlight on the step and their generator was gone. The guy had used bolt cutters to cut the chain holding it to the trailer and got one of their neighbors generators also. He drove by the place shortly after that and Virgil stopped him and said he wanted his license plate #. The guy didn't like that and took off. He got the # as he was driving away, ran in and called the sheriff and he got there in record time. They got to the guys place (he was actually staying in the same area), arrested him and he is in jail now. Another guy was arrested also. They impounded his trailer and vehicle and also found a stolen 4 wheeler, motorcycle, the 2 generators and new helmet. Hope these guys fry!

I'm finishing up a gem tree that Hillary and I made. I panned out some garnets that we got up in Hill City, SD and thought they would look great for the tree. Maybe a picture tomorrow of it...

We went over to the craft sale at the senior center. Not as big as the QIA one but saw some new faces. Lots of great crafts for Christmas presents.
I got some more wire to make another windswept tree. I need to perfect my board that I wrap the wire on before I do another one. My nail holes are too large, so I'll redo the board.
Not much else to report tonight. Hopefully tomorrow will be more eventful.

I made a pan of dressing today for the potluck Thanksgiving dinner at the rock club today. We had about 145 people show up for the dinner. It was wonderful and there are a lot of great cooks out there. I don't have to cook dinner tonight because we are still full from lunch. After we attended the weekly rock club meeting. I expected Ron and Terry to be at the lunch and meeting but they weren't. Missed a great meal, guys!!!
Bob then went to his favorite place by Dome Rock and prospected. I finished an arrowhead that I started yesterday.
There is a lot of smoke in the air this afternoon. You couldn't even see the mountains and the wind was blowing some. Bob thought it was dust, but I smelled the smoke so I have to disagree with him.
Hope it clears out by morning...

After I got home, Bob emptied out the black and gray water tanks and we headed to the dump sites. We dumped and then got fresh water for our showers. Bob got to talking to George Patton about gold prospecting while at the dump site so that delayed us by about another 1/2 hour.
We brought the water home and then he went prospecting...Surprise there!!!
I have been watching an item on EBAY and during the last 10 minutes of the auction, placed a bid and watched it closely...I ended up WINNING it...
Here's a pic of the GOLF DUCK and I will try in the near future to make some of them. Ron and Terry were ribbing me about getting this duck as they were sitting outside enjoying our fire this evening...
I think he's pretty cool and I can't wait to carve some duck heads and see how I do...

We came home and put the water in the trailer. I took a shower and then fixed lunch.
We ended up going to the rock club meeting and paying our dues for the coming winter. I have signed up for a faceting class and also a knapping class. Going to get started on all the rock club activities. We visited with several people we got to know last summer that have arrived down here.
We've seen several hummingbirds visiting the feeders since we put it up. Got to get some snapshots of them some early morning.
