    YUmmy , yummy!

    I just received Lodolite. It is quite different in the color: mostly grayish…with a tiny tiny hint on green but it is unusual in appearance . I am thinking of what would go with it…

  2. Chicky Bear-Tara
    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    Thank you. I haven’t seen the Ladolite in person. I did receive some Black Silver Leaf the other day and it is a lot darker than it showed on here…

    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    Yes. The song is called Taps. It was what soldiers play at the end of the day to let everyone know it’s time to go to bed.

    Day is done, gone the sun,
    From the hills, from the lake,
    From the sky.
    All is well, safely rest,
    God is nigh.

    Go to sleep, peaceful sleep,
    May the soldier or sailor,
    God keep.
    On the land or the deep,
    Safe in sleep.

    Love, good night, Must thou go,
    When the day, And the night
    Need thee so?
    All is well. Speedeth all
    To their rest.

    Fades the light; And afar
    Goeth day, And the stars
    Shineth bright,
    Fare thee well; Day has gone,
    Night is on.

    Thanks and praise, For our days,
    ‘Neath the sun, Neath the stars,
    ‘Neath the sky,
    As we go, This we know,
    God is nigh.

    I remember singing some of the verses at Girl Scout camp when I was younger. We used to ride dinosaurs back then. LOL ;-)

  11. Shannon aka Silly Chick
    Shannon aka Silly Chick says:

    Never knew there were even words to that song – really a beautiful poem, even though the tune is reserved for the saddest of occasions…Thanks for sharing it…

  12. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I always associate it with funerals of soldiers, so it makes me sad. :-(

  13. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Tara, thanks for sharing all the verses — I never knew there were so many of them. It truly is a beautiful poem/song. :-)

  14. Chicky Bear-Tara
    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    The song does have a sad mourning tune. They also play it at funerals. It’s also an honorable song and whenever you hear it, you can’t help but think about all the soldiers.

    Sue, did people actually climb up your mountain to visit or were they already up there? ;-)

  33. Cotopaxi Chickie Sue
    Cotopaxi Chickie Sue says:

    Lynn, we DO have roads up here, you know! And the county actually maintains them! Actually, the company were neighbors – within a few miles, anyway!

  34. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    LOL Real roads? Golly gee whiz, who knew? ROTFLOL

    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    Hi ladies, Thanks for all your congratulations and support. You are all wonderfule. Lynn, sorry to hear about your headache and glad you are feeling better. You all were on here late. I can’t stay up that late and don’t know how you do it. My sister was here from Atlanta last week so I didn’t get on here as often. We had a great time! One of my other sister’s birthday is on the 4th so we were celebrating. It was great fun! Hope you all are doing well.

  36. Chicky Bear-Tara
    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    That was supposed to be wonderful not wonderfule!

    Congrats on POD!!!!

  39. Chicky Bear-Tara
    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    Jeanne, I don’t wear orange or yellow at all…not my colors, they wash me out…but that Jilbara Jasper is just beautiful on here. I don’t know if it is in person or not, but it is on here. Thank you for the congratulations.

  40. Chicky Bear-Tara
    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    Thanks Little Chick!

  41. Leslie W Mtn Chick
    Leslie W Mtn Chick says:

    Thanks Tara! I just bought some of your red aventurine which is really golden yellow to use in a future vintaj design with etruscan beadcaps. Hope I like it, since I haven’t bought any before.

  42. Chicky Bear-Tara
    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    Thank you Leslie. I hope you like it too! I haven’t bought any.

  43. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Hi, Tara! Thanks, I’m feeling much better today. I can wear some shades of yellow and look good, but the one color you will never, ever see me wear is orange. It just makes me look like an ugly pumpkin or something. LOL Interesting tidbit — Dizzy Chick’s birthday is on July 4 also!

  44. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Congrats on your POD!!! :-)

    Hope everyone is feeling well today. I’m totally revved up, caue Amy arrive tomorrow! She tried to play a joke on me yesterday….called me up and said “So, Mom. You going to come pick me up at the airport?”… like she was already here and waiting for me. ;)

  45. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    ’cause …not caue

  46. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    She sounds just like her Mom — very funny! Hey, I thought she was coming in on the noon stagecoach, Miss Harriet. :D

  47. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Lynn, my brother-in law also has a 4th of July birth date!

  48. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Actually, she’s coming on the 6:00 PM hot air balloon on Wed. Sure would be nice if those Wright boys ever get their flying machine working. ;)

  49. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Since my birthay is Jan. 4, I always tease Bob that my half birthday is July 4! I was teasing him the other night — said I didn’t get any half cards, no half a cake….. He just laughs…..

  50. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Tara, we used to sing the first verse of Taps at Girl Scout camp, at bedtime every evening. Way long ago!!! ;)

  51. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Yup, I’ve heard of them thar flyin’ machines. Don’t know that they’ll ever git em up though. If they do, don’t think they’ll catch on…..

  52. Chicky Bear-Tara
    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    Hey Dizzie Chick…Happy Birthday! My sister Lori’s Birthday is the same day…. What a coincidence. Lynn, my daughter’s Birthday is January 5th. Happy 1/2 BD. Harriet, I did not go to girlscout camp, but I remember my sisters singing it when they got back. I was in girlscouts…just never went to camp. I do think we sang it at some point or else I just remember my sisters singing it…

  53. Chicky Bear-Tara
    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    And Lynn….I look just horrible in orange…not so bad in yellow, depending on the hue…

  54. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    That is funny about the birthdays, Tara! Thanks for the half birthday wishes. LOL

    Jeanne doesn’t wear orange, either. Must be something about our coloring, I guess.

  55. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Trouble with the balloons, aside from a really bad hair day–helmets and wind and weather— you have to get the right wind currents to go where you want. Otherwise, maybe Amy could have come sooner! LOL

    Uh-oh. Time to wake princess Liz and get her ready for her day. After lunch, her folks are picking her up to go to the dentist to get the spacers installed where they took out the 2 baby teeth. Maybe she will want to make jewelry this AM. :-)

  56. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I hope you and Princess Liz have a fun morning, Harriet! Hope things go well at the dentist for her. :D

  57. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Blue eyed; fair, cool tone skin; hair mostly silver now…. not a good plan for me to wear orange or any mustard type yellows. I don’t like wearing colors that make ME look yellow.

  58. Happy Chick aka Harriet
    Happy Chick aka Harriet says:

    Thanks, Lynn. I’m sure she will do fine. She is not even worried at all…I think he must be a very good pediatric dentist…good with kids as well as teeth. ;)

  59. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    No, Harriet, it’s never a good idea for our clothes or jewelry to make us look yellow! LOL

    lilys mimi-chickie says:

    looking at the lodalite nuggets, i would try carnelian, rutilated quartz, crystal quartz, bronzite maybe a bronze or copper pearl or metal….pretty much what the day of the pick is a combination of. lovely. reminds me of autumn leaves and cool crisp evenings and a beautiful red sky in the midwest. peace, lisa

  61. Chicky Bear-Tara
    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    Thank you Lisa. Glad you like it.

  62. KPJEWELS

    Love this combo and I remember the song from Girl Guides, I taught it to the girls when we went camping. More good memories, thanks. We don’t have Girl Scouts, our girls are called Girl Guides here in Canada.

  63. Suleika Alejandra
    Suleika Alejandra says:

    Beautiful, sunny, cheerful, colors. Wish I could have ordered all of them! Glad your “Pick” was selected….congrats!

    Great pick. Congrats on the POD!

  66. Chicky Bear-Tara
    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    Thank you 3KJewels, Suleika, Lilly for the congrats & compliments. I appreciate it.
    3kjewels…we lived in Canada for two years. I was a Girl Guide….Sprite?…in 2nd and 3rd grade. We lived in Edmonton, Alberta. Pretty much the same as Girl Scouts…huh! I love Canada. It is so beautiful.

  67. KPJEWELS
    KPJEWELS says:

    I have travelled the length of Canada a number of times and I love every inch of it. We have Sparks now. Sort of the equivalent of Beavers with the boys. They wear pink T’s. I was a Sparks leader for a couple of years. They are so cute.
    Yes, I’m sure that our guides are much the same as your scouts. It is a great training ground for the girls but it is getting to be terribly expensive for the girls to join.

  68. Chicky Bear-Tara
    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    That’s too bad that it has to be so expensive. Do they sell cookies like ours do? If not, maybe they should start so they can raise money for their troops. I know the uniforms weren’t cheap!
