Fighting Creek Furniture

I thought this vendor had some unique furniture pieces at reasonable prices. I also did love the t-shirt, and cups! I also thought their name was quaint!

Oatmeal (Fake Pecan) Pie

Since someone wanted the recipe, I decided to reblog it!

The Camerist's Collection

One of my favorite pies, and my wife does a bang-up job of baking it. We enjoyed it on Thanksgiving Day!!  I had a request for the recipe, so I hope in the editing it is posted again!

Oatmeal Pie Recipe:

1 Unbaked 9″ Pie Crust

1/4 C. Butter or Margarine

1/2 C. Sugar

1/2 tsp. Cinnamon

1/2 Cloves

1/4 tsp Salt

1 C. Light Corn Syrup

3 Eggs

1 C Oatmeal

Cream the butter and sugar: add spices and salt.  Stir in the corn syrup.  Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring well after each addition.  Stir in the oatmeal and pour into the pie shell.  Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about an hour, or till a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

Sunset Distractions

This was the sunset from our porch steps! We are on the West side of a Hill with much of the town to the west of us. Without walking to the top of the hill, or driving elsewhere this is what we see. Have a great day!

Elusive Wood Duck

IMG_8691I’ve had a photo of a Wood Duck on my “bucket list” for awhile. Each time the photo gets better. This photo is my best so far.  Next time I will try to add my 2x extender to my 7-300mm telephoto!

Day 259

In memory of our friend, John, who always enjoyed getting the grill going, to share a tasty meal with us!

The Camerist's Collection

BARBCUED SHRIMP was one of the tasty treats we enjoyed during our stay in the U.S.  These were grilled by John Yoder, with a little of my assistance.  If want to taste some good grillin’ you need to have one of John’s treats, including steak, chicken breasts, etc.

This Reblog is in memory of our good friend, John, who posed for this photo with his niece. Today, the day of his burial, would have been his 65th birthday, had he not succumbed to death! We will miss you, John! Our prayers go out for his widow, Rebecca. Praying for grace to sustain you in the days, months and years to come!!! John and Rebecca surely treated us like family!!! We cherish the many memories we have, of time with this fine couple!
