I’m looking for a fresh start for my web presence. For a long time, I reserved several domain names, tried to blog in different areas for different interests, but I’ve been feeling drawn to consolidating my interests in one area. It’s not quite as bad as you may think. I have two focus areas — Creative Expression (Journal, Reading, Writing) and True Health (Cats, Mater Key Experience, and Essential Oils). I wanted a place I could share the opportunity for my friends and readers (many times they are the same) to participate in enhancing their own health as well. Now, I can do that, and you can reap the benefits.
I haven’t decided upon the journaling schedule yet, but many of your old favorites will reappear. Cats, property, travel, technology, a random recommendation, and my husband’s beloved 1946 Mercurys will make periodic appearances. I’ve imported many posts from both Rantings and Ravings of An Insane Writer and Philosophical Meanderings, so if you have old favorites, they’ll likely be here.
Welcome. Please wander around. Help yourself to some Ningxia Red over in the Young Living area. It’s a tasty beverage made with wolfberries, among other things.
If you haven’t signed up to get these journal posts in your inbox yet, please head over to the box in the right sidebar (look for the bright yellow) and add yourself to the list right now (don’t forget to confirm your subscription).

As you read this (or soon thereafter if you’re reading in the wee hours of the morning in the Eastern Time Zone), we’re hiking the Chocolate Field in Hershey, Pennsylvania, searching for 1946 Mercury parts. We’re also looking for early 50s Jeep parts, 1948 Ford pickup parts, and a variety of other related items.
Mr. L has long envisioned a car frame rotator for use in restoring his 1946 Mercury automobiles. These are available commercially and are fairly expensive. He decided to build his own, and it’s complete enough for him to know it will do exactly what he wants it to do — support the frames and allow them to rotate or be held in a fixed position, providing easy access for sand blasting, welding, painting, and other preparatory functions in the restoration process.
In the bottom photo you should be able to see a homemade frame with crossed posts? The frame rotator will roll under that for compact storage. The metal part of the woodie body sits on top. The frame will store underneath when it isn’t being worked on.
In the Property Update, I mentioned Mr. L is beginning to assemble his frame rotator. Here’s what that looks like so far:
That’s the woodie frame on stands, and the boards are part of the rotator. The rotator hardware is in the box. He’s doing some repair work on the frame.

My Bloglines reads are piling up again. I read certain ones but am letting others sit. My Lexulous and Scrabble games are staying current. I need to finish Week 4 of HTRYN. There’s a lot of stuff going on. The roof installation is complete at the shop. Hubby and I … Continue reading →
It’s been a quick week in San Antonio. We head back to Central Texas tomorrow. Hubby has a dentist appointment on Thursday. We’ll be there for a week, then come back to SA to party for Fiesta and catch the New Braunfels Swap Meet. I’ll get a chance to meet … Continue reading →
Yes, you’ve noticed I haven’t posted much this week. Here’s what’s been going on. The weather has been good, so we’ve been getting a lot of work done around the properties. Hubby arrived from San Antonio with another car trailer load. He’s been moving his antique vehicles from the house … Continue reading →
Yes, I’m still very much alive. Hubby and I have been working on all kinds of things here at the house. He left this morning to head back to San Antonio, where he’ll spend the week loading the car trailer with more auto parts. Last week, we moved the ’46 … Continue reading →
Yes, I’m going home for the week and won’t be hanging out here. We’re looking for ’46 Mercury, ’48 Ford, or early 50’s Jeep parts; touching base with the grandkids (and the older “kid” and spouse); and hunting a “new” kitchen sink. I’m not sure if a visit with the … Continue reading →
