CARPETS THAT WERE MADE AT AN MCC project in Myemsingh, Bangladesh.  Alice and I had a very nice tour with Austin, and others, visiting many of the projects in Mymensingh, as well as the Taizi Brother’s chapel.

Day 267

HAPPY 11TH BIRTHDAY TO our grandson, Jensen Isaiah Miller!! Here he is trying to light the candles on his birthday cake.  He decorated the cake.  Of course this birthday celebration was early, since we were leaving for Bangladesh before his birthday.  Sorry, Jensen, Grandma’s calendar says your birthday is not till the 26th!

Day 155

INDIGO DYED YARN AND other colors being blended in the loom at an MCC project in Mymensingh, Bangaldesh.  I spent the day on Wednesday touring different projects with my son, Austin, and grandson, Pruitt.  Sorry folks, if this download is slow, I think I may have forgotten to downsize the photo!

P.S. Sorry FACEBOOK friends, no entries for awhile until Bangladesh quits unlocks FACEBOOK.

Day 79

LOCKSMITH

I wanted two new keys to lock our apartment door.  No Wal-Mart so I sent my helper to the market and he had this fellow make one with a file, punch, hack saw, hammer, etc.  After several tries he came to the house so he could try them instead of my helper bringing them home, and taking them back when they didn’t work.  Here he is holding the key blank with his big toe and finger of one hand while running the file with the other hand!!  

A key in the making!

Day 76
