Just Checking In....

Hello Blog Friends!!!
Just checking in. I have been so busy. Stitching away on a model for Donna at By The Bay Needlearts.  It is a great one, that is all I can say! 
My daughter and her hubby have put a contact on a house. I hate to think that my grandbabies will be moving. It is just about 5 miles away... But, when they have just been across the road.. That is a long way
My brother and niece gave for sister in law a 40th Birthday Bash today. They had great bar-b-que and all the fixings. Then they brought out an ice cream cake.. It was beginning to get a little warm outside under their carport and my brother went into the side room and rolled out this:

He opened the side of it and dumped in Water and Ice!!!  Turned this beautiful thing on and out came cold air!!!  I am in love!!  This air conditioner is so cute!!!  It works great too.
My mom said that her inlaws had one just like it in the early 1960's that they moved it around the house to cool the room that they were in.. I have just never seen a air conditioner where you can dump ice and water in it... lol
I told my brother to will this thing to me... lol  I am in love! It may just be that I was so hot and this thing cooled the temp down.....
Do you know that KenStar still makes these?  If a company has stayed in business this long, they may have a great product. Dear hubby busted my bubble by saying, I would have to buy a lot of ice to keep this thing running for me. 
I am back home and watching Hippies of History Channel. It is interesting. I didn't know Steve Jobs was a hippie...I learn something new everyday. 
Sorry for jumping around with subjects.. That is the way my week has been.. lol
Getting back to stitching now...I will live you with this...

Home Depot sells the portable air conditioners. They also can be used as heating and air humidifiers too. I might just get one of these myself, especially if the weather continues of is crazy cycle the way it's been going. LOL Steve Jobs a hippie...I can see it....doesn't surprise me in the least. Have a great weekend Sweeite.

I didn't know it then, but have heard it since (Jobs). Don't you love how the great old song lyrics pop into your mind at the most unexpected times? It happens to me all the time. Neat a/c - never seen one like that, either.
