For an object who can’t talk back to me you are a good friend… You help me talk things over in my head. you help me tell people who don’t know me and probley don’t care about my life and what is going on.. you help me tell people about my favorite thing to do in my life is my bookstore and how I have always wanted to have one, This online store has helped me fill my time when I have been sad, lonely, happy and glad… This blog is my second friend… My real friend was the first person to write a commment on here after I wrote.. She was the first person to buy a book from my bookstore. (Lucy Lipshits.) How about that for a name.. ‘

 Butterfly Rainforest

It even rained while we were there.. This place is beside the Florida Museum of Natural History… So worth seeing.. You go though this door and wait for it to close then go through another door and there are fans going blowing air out so the butterfly’s don’t come in…They are everywhere and every kind you can think of… They fly with out fright and they land on you I had one on my hand.. it was so cute and and another man had one on his shoulder…The plants are beautiful. Husband came home wishing we had space to make one… You can’t describe how beautiful it was you have to go there…And we will be taking all our visitors there for sure….

Need a good read this summer check out our online book store .. Great selection and prices at http://tinyurl.com/olyuny  or www.readerwave.com

eCRATER is a little known place, where I can enter all my books for free, pay nothing to them when I sell books, or other items.  Then its also a place where you don’t have to pay allot when you buy…. I only charge 00.45 to 2.00 for used books… depending on shape they are in and size.  I have Harlequin which I can not sell on Ebay or Amazon as I would have to charge over a 1.00  Both these other stores charge huge fee’s which like any other business I would pass on to you so I could make money. I have a book in both these stores and I also have it in eCrater… You can see the difference in pricing… Check out “Waiting for Agnes by Joe Bullard.. its a new personally autographed book about the Coral Castle in Homestead,Fl. Its the only book I have been selling for awhile… People are not checking out my eCRATER store even though its easy to look at and over 1200 items in it. New and Used Books, audio,LARGE PRINT,Cd’s, collectibles, stuffed animals, flip flops (homemade decorated) We also have a big collection of Nora Roberts, and Debbie Macomber, Diana Palmer,James Patterson,and many more. We have over 120 named authors as well as ones in sections of Romance, Mystery,Fantasy,Religion and more.  We offer you two ways to buy… Papal and money order, with paypal its harder to offer you a shipping discount. But if you trust us..we will send you a refund after we process your order.  With money order we will send you the right bill before you send it… What we offer is When you buy more than one book first or most expenxive is shipping  full price and everyone after is 1.00  … Another deal is if you buy 4 or more books you get one free.. You email us with the choice and we take it off line for you… It must be one of the same or lesser value.

I hope we have answered all questions if not make a comment or email us at readerwave@bellsouth.net   our store is at http://tinyurl.com/olyuny  or www.readerwave.ecrater.com   

You can follow us on twitter or here on our blog if you have something you would like to know about let us know.. we are open to new idea’s we try to follow blog hops… or we might lead you back to another blog that we though was great… Become a regular follower… We’d love to have you on board..

We just found this place.. And its in our back yard so to speak. The browser says (A one of a kind authentic 19th century working farm) the real Florida..  It was so much fun.. when we got there the ladies were in the flower garden.  They had a peach tree that they were harvesting the peaches to can..The flowers were just beautiful

It says..The Dudley landscape is typical of the early Florida Farm with gardens, grape arbors, pecan and fruit trees, pastures, pinewoods, and croplands of peanuts, field peas, Sweet potatoes, and sugar cane.  It is a native habitat for animals such as deer, wild turkey, gopher, tortoises, bats and bluebirds.

In the mid 1800’s Dudley Farm consisted of rolling land covered with longleaf pine and wiregrass.  The longleaf pines provided material for all the Dudley buildings, fence posts, and split rail fences

Ponds, sinkholes, and an extensive network of cave passages permeate the area.  The rich organic soil with a clay and limestone substructure, coupled with the Florida climate, create an area well suited for agricultural use.(the last three paragraphs I copied form the liture they gave us while there.. It has a map and directions of the area…)

Dudley Farm Historic State Park, 18730 W.Newberry Road,Newberry,Fl 32669   (352) 472-1142

Open 9am to 5pm Farmstead closes at 4pm Closed Monday and Tuesdays

I was a new mother a month old baby.. Living with my parents, and grandparents.  My husband had not even met his daughter yet as he was in the Navy out to sea at the time.. Our daughter would be 5 months old before he saw her…I remember the day and what happened but I don’t really remember things around it.. This daughter and her family were just here visiting last month for her birthday.. What a great time. I was so old back then and knew it all… My mother still tells me that I THINK I know it all… I do don’t you…………

My two oldest granddaughters are here visiting and I was telling them that there mother was not even a twinkle at that time…

Have a good day stay day……….
