Marilyn has Something To Say

I am sorry, I didn't get a regular post on this morning.  Today, I am starting my second part time job.  My first job is walking a dog, which I enjoy doing.  Seeing that is going so well, I have advertised to see if I can get more.  This job is a half hour or so twice a day.

My new additional job is watching a lady when her husband has to leave the house for medical treatment, grocery store, etc..  She recently got out of the hospital, and we are seeing how this is going to work.  He is trying to keep her out of a nursing home.  I have known them for quite a while  and to get a nurse, or aide was really expensive, so I set my price and they took it.  Right now, it is two maybe three days for 5 hours a day.

So this, in addition, to life in general, I may not get posts on here as much as I have.  I will try, but I can not guarantee.  I wanted you to know  that if they aren't on, why.  These two jobs will help relieve my fiances and get a little put a way for an emergency.  Also, I haven't had a vacation in years and years.

So, I just want you to know what is going on.

Finally, I got pretty good pictures of the babies.  There seem to be only two, now.  At one time, there were three.  Hope you enjoy seeing them now that they are bigger.

Yesterday, there were Model T's everywhere: parked in front of the museums, on Main Street, in the parking lot, at restaurants, - everywhere.  This is the Model T. Ford Club International, 60th Annual Summer Tour, Central New York, July 17 - 22, 2016 - Finger Lakes Farm Land and T's.  A man told me that there were 300 Model T's here from the United States, Canada and other countries.  He was from Canada.  They were heading for Auburn for tonight.

The Model T was made by Ford Motor Company from October 1, 1908 until May 26, 1927.  Model T's were made in the United States, Canada, Brazil, Japan, Ireland, Spain and more countries.  It was generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the car that opened travel to the common middle - class American.

I had no idea they were coming and enjoyed looking at the cars, talking to people and taking pictures. They are welcomed in our village, anytime.

This and that is when I find items that I don't have enough for a post of, but think are interesting.  The first three are mail boxes I saw. Next is an old gas pump that I remember from when I was young.  Next is an antique truck.  The last three are machinery I saw on a couple of farms.
