It doesn't matter if it is California, Florida or Alaska and Hawaii. Same key. It is nice and comforting to know that someone can reach you if you can not help yourslef.

I feel a lot safer here. Non-residents have to show ID to a guard and sign in 24 hours a day. They also have to include the resident's name AND apartment number they are here to visit.

Had a wonderful day today, First got a call from a DC member it felt so good to talk with her, she is a dear. Then we had dinner at my daughters home for Ethan's birthday. My beautiful boy is 8 years old today. It's hard to believe he is 8 already. Getting hugs and kisses from Ethan and his sister Olivia just made my day.

So I have discovered a previously untapped addiction...

Vintage small appliances. Last week I bought a vintage Kitchenaid mixer (from the 50's most likely). Then a hand mixer from the same era.

Today I was in a thrift store and saw an old Dormeyer stand mixer and I was instantly drawn to it. It looks just like the one that My great grandmother owned, maybe slightly newer. It was $3 and IT WORKS! It was missing a bowl, but I snagged it. I went to a thrift store down the street, and my eye catches a milk glass bowl that looked just like the bowl for my great grandmother's mixer, so I snagged it for $2.50. Take it to the car and it fits perfectly on the mixer! I took her home and gave her a good cleaning and here she is!



Last year I was heartbroken when my mom said that my great grandmother's mixer had been left in the basement and rusted, so she threw it away. When my great grandmother needed around the clock care, my siblings and I would take turns staying with her between the time that the nurse left and when my grandmother came to spend the night. I would cook her dinner, she had almost no appetite, but one thing that she would always eat was lemon meringue pie. So at least once a week while staying with her, I would make her that pie, using the old Dormeyer mixer. I'm glad to have this even if just for a display piece, it brings back good memories!

I have a bowl exactly like yours. I too found it in a thrift shop. I use it for letting dough rise. That is a great find.
