Father's Day cookout

Here is Cooper with his dad, they are hanging out in the hammock, trying to keep cool. Cooper is getting so big! He was 7 and a half months old in this pic. Where does time go???

Here is our sweet little granddaughter Kaya (age 19 months) in our back yard. She is playing in her Little Tykes playset. Isn't she adorable? This pic was taken after she had been playing for quite some time in the heat on Father's Day. Our little Energizer Bunny, she wouldn't slow down for anything, even a 90+ degree day!!!

Here she is taking a big drink of Grandpa's lemonaide. She has Grandpa wrapped around her little baby finger, that is for sure! Actually, she has us all wrapped around her little baby finger, but she can get to Grandpa faster than anybody. Just flash those big ole baby blue eyes and that big grin and he is a gonner.

Check out our snazzy powdercoated tomato cages and plant hangers!

I have the best hubby ever. He powdercoated our tomato cages in 5 different colors! I love powdercoated things, and would have them all over the place if I could. I am my hubby's worst customer, the non paying kind! :) Check out our lovely tomato cages and the beautiful planters he powdercoated for us -

Can't wait til the garden fills in more and we have some yummy veggies. WHile we are waiting, we will still enjoy some color though!

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
