Hi old friend I got to the best part of my computer.. Found my friend my blog… I was so worried that I would not find you.. 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.. ‘
I want to thank @weatherangel for introducing you to me… and working with me to get u up and going….

The reason you got lost is because our computer crashed while we went away from it for one day… My shipping department is also a computer geek… in the repair department. He is retired and lives with me he is a husband, grandpa and a best friend.. Don’t know what I would do with out him.. Anyways my blog… thanks for being with me for almost a year… I just love writting on u and u help keep me sain…
Tomorrow I hope to have everything up and running again so I can put books and authors in you… and hope I don’t have to retake pictures of this weeks books as they are already in the computer that crashed but Gene is up looking files from as we speak.. He thought he had lost them all but he worked and worked till he thinks he has them but won’t know till he finishes….cross your fingers…. what a weekend…………come see our store at or

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

You can go on line to find more Florida State Parks at  or call (850)488-9872

Looking for a good new or used book for summer reading check out our bookstore at  or  here you will find our two stores and one book on ebay and our blog that you are looking at now… Thanks for stopping by come again… we are always trying to improve…

Started off today putting coke rewards on the coke site.. I have over 500 points..I personally don’t use the points… I started saving about three years ago because I think it is wasteful to throw away something that you or someone could use… At the time I was thinking of using them to get things for grand-kids.. well I never did and then at Christmas coke came up with Toys for Tots using the points so I turned them over to them… Have been doing it the past three Christmas.. Last year my family even helped.. I gave them my code and told them I needed this many more points to make 1000.. we did it thanks to my daughter-in-law.. we even opened cases not opened in our garage yet…

Another thing I save is pop tops.. my great niece’s and nephew save them for school.. School sends them to Saint Jude… I would gladly save the cans if I knew of a local person who wanted them… We don’t recycle them as we have to pay for the truck to pick them up..Sorry I am into saving not spending…

The last thing we do is with Boxtops…The saving of these goes back to when my daughters were in grade school (80’s) Well my grandsons save them for school.. which ever class has the most in the week gets a sno cone party on Fridays…I send them in a baggy to their Mother and she splits them up between the two of them. The coupons are used to get something for the school.. Saving things that will go in the garbage is a waste… I don’t buy anything we don’t use… There are so many brands that have them…  

Almost for got.. would of except I had to change it just now… recycling print cartridges.. HP.. they give you a free return mail envelope in every box.. if there isn’t one you can call 1-800-340-2445 and they will send you one or go to

When you buy 4 books in our online bookstore you get a 5th book free.. come see at  or  

Have a good day… I am listening to Michael buble  on my iPod

I was shown some facts and Now I am more confused than before.. People are reading me and looking at my store but I don’t have anything showing on my gmail… so I guess I need some one to explain…

but I am now going back to work on putting books in my store…. I have almost 1100 items and I want to make it 1100 books… so need to put in about another 100.   My book room is looking better have almost all the hardcovers in and put up on top shelves… Have almost all my groups of authors that I have together on shelves done… then I can go back to the romance, mystery, adventures and historical romance…  I have a box of books that were new but now they are not so new the white pages have gotten dusty in the last year so dropping them from new… to looks new… but that will be seveal weeks from now… please pass on to your friends my web address… Thanks or

Have a great weekend….Someone on my street is having a yard sale tomorrow I just might put my books out for sale… and some other things that I have …  all my friends from the flee market come on over… I live several blocks east of the market…

Flee Market its to hot…. I don’t know what I was thinking… and I need to finish cleaning up books in my book room … Family will be coming Father’s Day weekend and the week after…

Yard Sale I just got up and we uselly go by now… I was up sick again last night… Will call doctor on Monday this is not something I am going to sit on…

I am glad that my sights are getting more lookers.. But people I can’t keep my store open from lookers… Those of you that are looking send a friend or two please.. 

I put the flip flops in yesterday tell me what you think

What a way to start the day.. Yes things are great today…………..I will do my best………….

We always have banana’s except when we don’t go to the store the day before.  Its another yucky day… 56 when we woke up… Its May…  Today I am going to do laundry and take pictures… putting all my hard cover books in my store…. I am not going back to the flee market this season… Will start again in the fall…. If there is a book you want let me phone or email.. or comment on here…

This week we are having company (Mom says she’s not company she has been here more than three times). Coming up from South Florida.. we use to work together, before that she was my dance teacher. We have been Buddy’s for almost 10yrs… She is the third longest friend I have had… 1st was Berta who I have known sense high school and then there is Susie who I have known sense my oldest daughter and her son were in kindergarten together… We all live in different places now… One in North Carolina, one in Kentucky, one in South Florida and me here in North Florida….

The weather is cold and has my fingers stiff this morning… Maybe that is what is wrong with Twitter.. I write and the words come up a few seconds later instead of right away…   Oh we have lots of tomatoes and squash on our plants well we have tomatoes,  and squash is bloomed so far Gene found a chemical that keeps the worms away… that is so nice…. We saw a hummingbird yesterday.. they have not been coming around as much as they did last year… We have not figured out way… have seen one rabbit a couple of times… but not as much as last year… things are changing… please pray that they get better for people and animals… Gene is feeling better this morning… He found something to take to help him sleep. over the counter… I think it worked… he did not move so much in his sleep…I think he has that restless sleep thing… and his arthritis does not help… Oh I just heard him in the laundry room… means he carried the basket there for me to tackle… 6 loads later…. well bye for now … picture of the day will be………….

One of my friends is selling out their store on eCRATER take a look, maybe what you don’t find here you will find there…

Remember we sell one autographed book by local author Joe Bullard. “Waiting for Agnes” You can find this book on three different sights… Three different prices and  many ways to pay.eCRATER is the least expensive at $19.00 plus shipping and handling.(everything I sell is cheaper here.) eBay is $19.50 plus shipping and handling. Amazon is $23.00 plus shipping and handling.  When you look at this blog today ask one person who you have never told before and ask them to tell one person… I am going to try that each day… On Twitter I will tell about one blog or store that I looked at the day before.. Trying to show other sites and have people look at mine…. Have a great day… my book (blog) is done for now.
