  9. You've just reminded me that there are a few things decomposing on my bric-a-brac shelves. I should quit computing and get the dust rag -- later. ;)

    Excellent take on the pic!

  11. Superb MM, Grandma. Love the "dust to dust" phrase--if dust is holy, my whole house must be a shrine.

    Have a great week.

  14. They WERE pretty dusty -- they had a good scrubbing before going into the box, but for their feelings maybe I should have done it before the photo! LOL Oh poor Br. Vincent!
