Back when I started my excavation for the patio I found a few items in the dirt. Not long after that I happened to find an old friend on facebook and it turns out that one of his many hobbies is Metal Detecting. I contemplated getting the equipment and doing it myself but then decided that I'd be better off just having him come over. The photo above is what he found which is mostly junk. Prior to and after his search I have found even more junk as I sift through the dirt that I am moving back to the patio area because I dug down too far. I have found another key, the end of a bungee cord, more foil, twist ties and a variety of nails.
Now that we have all of the junk out of the way I may have him come back. If you live in Utah on an older property and would like to see what Howie can find in your yard just give me a call.

When Millie Brady saves Orla Hart's life she doesn't realise how drastically it will change her own – not least because the boyfriend who was asking her to move in with him at the time stormed off in a huff. Actually, Millie's relieved. She's happy to enjoy a man-free summer in Cornwall. But Orla has other ideas. She's determined that Millie should meet the man of her dreams. Trouble is, Millie's taste in men doesn't tally with Orla's. The one who really interests her is Hugh Emerson, and he's the man with whom Orla's adamant she mustn't get involved...

Mollie has been laid to rest due to some unexpected complications and internal bleeding from what they assume was cancer related. She got to eat bananas and peanut butter crackers that day and was happy and appeared to be pain free until the very end. She was 12. This picture was of her sleeping on my floor one day when I was watching her. She was a sweetheart.

This is truly a DIY job and is taking forever. Some days I'm motivated, some days I'm not.

Carnival Breeze: June 1-7, 2014 with long time friend Rebecca. We took advantage of the single booking rate and we each got our own rooms. They were connected.
In Key West we did a Hop On Hop Off a Trolley excursion. We liked the tour guide so much that we didn't ever hop off because then you would have ended up with a different guide. I wish I had gotten off and waited for him to circle back around because I missed many photo ops. The beach was beautiful and you could climb the lighthouse. I'll just have to go back.
In Grand Cayman we walked to the 7 mile beach (mistake) then we swam a little and walked part of the way back before we grabbed a cab for only $5 for both of us. Oops! No pictures either. Rebecca probably has some on her phone.
Here's Rebecca pointing at our ship. She did a little shopping in Cozumel. We were originally going to go snorkeling but I had some allergy/head cold issues so we didn't.
Here I am on the ropes course. It was our second time since we didn't have our camera's the first. That's another ship next to us. We did this while in port. I can't remember which one but I assume it was Cozumel since we didn't visit for long.
This was Cozumel. My least favorite port but it made for a pretty picture. I didn't take as many photos this time and I regret it. For some reason I didn't feel like hauling the camera around and when I did the photo ops were missed.
Some fun towel animals as usual left on my bed. A dog and an elephant. There were more but I only took pics of these two.
And last, the view from the top of the atrium. Do you see the four glass elevators? This was taken from the 11th floor. The Carnival Breeze was a nice ship.
