As I told you previously about my niece going for her Doctorate Degree in Physical Therapy. Not only that but she has POTS DISEASE and other health issues. What is POTS Disease I’m sure asking yourselves? POTS Disease is: Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome which means it is a condition in which a change from lying to standing causesabnormally large increase in heart rate. To Find out more about POTS Disease you can go to this search link and it is: POTS Disease (search links) .
Don’t think for an instant the University paid for this trip or any other trips the students had to take. OH no, the students paid for this trip and it wasn’t even part of their tuition. They had to pay for it separately. These are just some of the pictures we got. In the one picture the young woman is my niece.
The picture of the Eagle below is very old. This ought to tell you how old it is because I was still a kid when they got it. They always wanted a wood carving like when they found this Eagle they got it. We still have it. I just love it.
My one niece who is going for her Doctorate Degree in Physical Therapy at Slippery Rock University here in Pennsylvania. She’s been studying and doing what the university calls Clinicals. What are Clinicals? It’s similar to an internship. It’s hands on learning and a way to get better. The students have to do so many weeks out of state in Clinicals and so many weeks in state. One of the places out of state she chose was a place in Nashville. The places in the state of Pennsylvania she chose was close to her home luckily. She chose a place in Cranberry, PA and also at the VA in Butler, PA. She gets her Doctor coat this year and will graduate in May of 2020. I may be partial but I am a very proud Aunt.
While down in Nashville she sent us a bunch of pictures. So I thought I’d share some with you. ENJOY. She liked Nashville so much she wouldn’t mind going back.
This recipe for Homemade Ice Cream is not only tested and tried but this recipe has also made its rounds through the family. You see my Family Homemade Ice Cream Recipe was passed down from Great Grandmother to my mother and you guessed it, I got the recipe from my mother. Now onto the recipe.
Homemade Ice Cream Recipe For 6 Quart Ice Cream Freezer
1.) 4 Eggs.
2.) 2 1/2 cups White Sugar.
3.) 1 can of Evaporated Milk.
4.) 4 tablespoons of Vanilla.
1.) Beat 4 Eggs then add the Sugar slowly while beating it.
2.) Now add the Evaporated Milk and the 4 tablespoons of Vanilla.
3.) Pour all of this into the ice cream container then fill the container 3/4 full of Regular Milk. Put container into the ice cream freezer and surround it with ice and plug freezer in. Can use hand crank ice cream freezer to make the Homemade ice cream too.
If you don’t have a Ice Cream Freezer/Container you can usually find one at Amazon.com, Walmart or another shopping store/mall that might have one.
I would like to Introduce one of our yearlings to you. Her name is Dylan. I know Dylan is a boys name but we named her this because she eats a lot and as much as my 16 year old nephew who also is named Dylan. Yes my nephew eats a lot too.
You’ll remember way back in late 2018 or early 2019, I asked you all if you knew what kind of animal came to our campsite. One nice person told me it was probably a deer who was a few days or few weeks old. Then she told me she hoped she made it through the winter. I’m happy to say she did. However, she’s not doing good. Have you ever heard of Mange or Wasting Disease? Then you know it usually doesn’t end well for the animal who has it. I’m sorry to say, I suspect she has one of these two diseases. The first picture I have of Dylan is Below as well as others.
Dylan At A Very Young Age Around Oct. 29, 2018 (give or take a day either way).
Dylan Trying To Find Food In January 2019.
Dylan Eating In March (She Looks Good Now But Wait).
Dylan Starting To Show Signs In Her Fur In March 2019.
Dylan Looking Pretty Scruffy Around March 2019.
Dylan’s Backside Starting To Look Bad Around April 2019.
Dylan Starting To Look Worse Around April 29, 2019.
Dylan Getting Some Comfort From A Mama Deer (not necessarily his Mama).
This Is What Dylan Looks Like On May 2019.
Now you’ve seen what can happen to a Deer or other animal if they contract Wasting Disease or Mange. This poor girl was very fortunate and made it through the Winter. Since she was probably a late deer being born and may have even lost her Mama for all we know.
All I know is some of her sores look to have healed. Anyhow, she knows where to get her food and knows how to survive.
Hi everyone and welcome to CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE for another edition of Friendly Fill – Ins. Only this time Daisy Mae came to me and said she wanted to do a special Mother’s Day edition of Friendly Fill – Ins. So I have given Daisy Mae to take charge. OH I hope you like it.

Queen Mom Crystal: For what Queen Daisy Mae?
Queen Daisy Mae: I’m really surprised. You forgot didn’t you? You forgot about Mother’s Day and Friendly Fill – Ins didn’t you? Be honest with me.
Queen Mom Crystal: Well Queen Daisy Mae I will be honest with you. I didn’t forget about Mother’s Day. In fact I wrote a poem that will coming out on Sunday or Monday and I was going to forgo Friendly Fill – Ins this week. What do you have to say to that?

1.) 2005-2006 was a very good year. This was the year I got my forever home. That’s right folks, I’m going to be the big 13 on Sept. 12.
2.) There is nothing quite like a forever and loving home.
3.) If I had a talk show, I would want to interview the Queen Mom Crystal’s favorite author Amorette Anderson and also want to interview Miss Ellen and her cats from 15 And Meowing.com. I guess I would ask her cats what’s it like to live with multiple cats and ask Miss Ellen how on earth does she manage all those cats?
4.) There is nothing I wouldn’t do for Fancy Feast. Chicken variety and it must be Classic Pate` since they discontinued my favorite, favorite kind.
So to ALL the Mother’s out there whether you have children or are the Mother of a furfriend. HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO YOU ALL!! I ALSO WANT TO WISH MY MOM A SPECIAL MOTHER’S DAY WISH.
QUEEN MOM CRYSTAL MY MOTHER’S DAY GIFT TO YOU IS TO LET YOU PICK ME UP AND LOVE ME ALL YOU WANT. HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY MOM!!!!
Now I don’t know about anyone else but in my opinion bacon in almost any recipe is great and you can’t go wrong. Today’s recipe comes from a wonderful site called Two Spoiled Cats . This site I just love.
Ten Eggs (important ingredient in an omelette!)
1/3 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 dashes hot pepper sauce, or to taste
1/2 pound bacon – cooked, and chopped into bite – size pieces
1 (4 i) can black olives, drained
2 roma (plum) tomatoes, chopped
1/4 cup green onions, chopped
1/3 cup mushrooms, sliced
3/4 cup Colby – Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat an 8 inch square baking dish with non – stick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine eggs and milk. With an electric mixer, beat until frothy. Blend in salt and hot pepper sauce. Stir in bacon, olives, tomatoes, green onions, mushrooms and cheese. Pour into prepared pan, and cover with lid or aluminum foil.
Bake in preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes, or until eggs are set in the center.
If there is an ingredient you either don’t like or want in your River Omelette DON’T PUT IT IN!! It’s that easy. As for the cheese if you prefer American, Provolone, Swiss or some other cheese instead of Colby – Monterey Jack cheese please feel free to use it. As we all know THAT the bacon is the most important ingredient then the eggs. Now maybe you’ll try it for Breakfast, another meal or even serve your mother Breakfast in bed.
The picture below is of an actual Bear my uncle shot many, many years ago. This is the Bear head. It was passed down to my Dad after my uncle died. He was into hunting. There is nothing fake about this Bear. I can’t tell you how old this bear is because I don’t know. But trust me, he’s old. Also, you see below the Bear head is part of an old clock. Like the Bear Head I have no idea how old the clock is either.
I will be doing Questions 1 and 2 and Daisy Mae will be doing questions 3 and 4. My answers will be in the color Purple, in Bold Print and in Italics and Daisy Mae’s answers will be in the color Navy Blue, Bold print and in Italics. All questions are in the color Black.
1.) I got my first cell phone in well never. I don’t own a cell phone. Crazy I know.
2.) I wish the word – word: there is more than one word that could be removed from the English Language.
3.) I never outgrow sleeping and sleeping my furrever family’s laps.
Here is an article I wrote on how to get rid of Fleas/Ticks on a cat or kitten and my experience with a kitten who I named Cutie Pie. Below is the link to the original link to the article. I hope you read it.
Hi everyone and a big welcome to you. Also a Very Happy Easter to you too.I wanted to do something very special for Easter so I decided to write a poem and create a puzzle for you to do. I hope you like it.
WHY JESUS CAME TO EARTH
Jesus came to earth knowing what
His Father’s will was for Him
To do but He came to
Earth anyway. For many Years He
Taught about his Father and the
Only way to get to Heaven
Is through Him. While on His
Journey and mission He taught many
People but even though they heard
Him teach the Truth, some of
Those people tested and tried Him
But He always prevailed and we
See that in the miracles He
Performed. When Palm Sunday came
And the people layed palm branches
on the road and was all for
Following Him until Pilate gave the
People a choice to crucify Him or
Let Him live. The people chose
Crucify Him. He knew this was
His mission to accomplish all along
And He still remained Silent. Why
Did He remain silent? He remained
Silent because He knew His mission
Was to save us from our sins
And to do that He had to die
On the cross and on that third
Day, He arose from the dead and
ascended into heaven and sitteth on
The Right hand of His Father
And reigns With His Father in
Heaven. So why Did Jesus come
To earth? To die For our sins.
So when you’re teaching your kids
And grandkids about Easter,
Remember it’s OK to
Incorporate the Easter Bunny
Just be sure you teach them
The real reason for Easter.
Praise God He Is Risen Indeed!!
Here is a puzzle for you to do. It’s of the above photo. Below is the link/code for the puzzle. Have Fun.
