Office Management

Earlier today I had the opportunity to view an Office Manager at work.
My friend, Gail, of Gail Friend Designs is a very busy woman and found it necessary to hire some help to keep her office running smoothly.
Now.....don't tell Gail this, but I fear her Office Manager is "sleeping" on the job.
I have a fair amount of experience in this regard.
Here's a pic of my own Office Manager. Note the similarities!

Please email your addy to me at, Lynette, and he will be on his way to you as quick as a wink.

Look for them then......and thank you ever so much for playing!

Greenfield Village

Yesterday may have started out cold, cloudy and windy, but finished up with a gorgeous day with temps at about 60 degrees. My BFF, Debbie, and I made our annual pilgrimage to Greenfield Village in Dearborn, MI.

I so enjoy being transported back in time each year when we visit. It always makes me wish for a simpler life. Thought I would share a couple pics that I took as we walked along.

The large white building is the Eagle Tavern where we enjoyed a delicious 1940's style harvest meal. Don't know why I didn't take pics inside! It is such a delight.

I hope you enjoy these pics!
