Random Five Friday

It’s Friday again, and I have some random thoughts which I will now share.

1.) In addition to the old rubber stamp set, I also found this vintage child’s chair while antiquing on Wednesday. AND the sweet little tea kettle, which I placed beside a regular sized one. They both have the same shape spout. You just know “that ol moss” will soon be planted in that little one, too.

2.) And speaking of the rubber stamps, Marshall began researching that wooden box they were in. He’s still investigating, but it seems that it was a kit used in some sort of testing. And, as you can see by the label, it was made by the C. H. Stoetling Company. Best of all, it was made in the U.S.A.  If we find out more about it, I’ll let you know.

 3.) The swans have been visiting us for several years, and Groom Swan is definitely the friendlier of the two.  Bride Swan has always been a bit aloof, although she does let me get fairly close to her when she’s in our yard. But one day last week, she actually took about four steps toward me. And allowed her photo to be taken.

4.) Since I haven’t shared a sunrise photo recently…

5.) And last (AND least, as far as pleasantries), Motor Man and I both have dental appointments today for fillings.  You just know how much we’re looking forward to that.

Feel free to share your randomness, and, hopefully, yours doesn’t include the dentist.
