Forensics (con't), Friday Fleas and Flurries

Just a quick update on our exciting forensics file (okay, sometimes a girl has to put some drama in her blog):  Our neighbor has been reimbursed for his mailbox!  Although we haven't been in touch with the other property owners, I have to presume that the driver of the truck is or has taken care of their damage. My entry was actually meant to be typical Grinnin Gramma humor, at least the parts with the forensics evidence.  Since, except for maybe the pride of the driver, nobody was injured I really thought the fact that the truck was wound up like a top in barbed wire but the sheriffs department still needed an eye witness, was kinda funny.
 Before we went to bed last night, I opened the door to cast a final check on our property.  Imagine my surprise when I saw this:  Our immediate world was covered in snow!
I snapped a couple pictures, believing it would all be melted by morning.  Instead, this is what was happening outside at 7:00 this morning:    Here's the view from my kitchen window:    We're even under a severe weather watch and it's almost 1:00 PM as I write this!  A scene like this isn't at all unusual for Indiana (which is where we'll be heading tomorrow - yaaaaaay!) but it is totally atypical for NE Tennessee.

Last but not least, my offerings for Friday Flea Market are a few of my handmade Christmas stockings:
Additional pictures are on my Webshots album.  Just click the picture!
Primitive stocking with charm - $12.00 plus postage
Shabby chic, lightly aged with teastain - $13.99 + postage

I'll be in Indiana for this next week, grateful to my neighbors for watching our house, dog and parrots while we're gone.  Therefore, you can email me at if you have any questions about my flea market items (last week's are still available, too!) but they won't be mailed until a week from Monday.
Have a great Thanksgiving!

Snow? Wow, we haven't even had any in Kansas yet. Probably won't for a few weeks anyway.

Neat stockings!
