It is so hard to believe another year has gone by, and it is Hall of Fame time again.
Our city gets very busy this time of year and all the hotel rooms are filled. It seems every year at this time there is road work being done. I think this is the best it has been for many years. This is it, The Pro Football Hall of Fame. I was never in it until they did a Senior day and we got in free. I am not very into football. We pass it everyday. We live very close by.
This is the stadium where the game is played every year and televised everywhere.
My kid's Dad played here when he was in High School. All of the High School games for the city schools are played here. It is a really nice stadium.
These are two of the 2010 inductees. You might recognize them from Dancing With the Stars. Jerry Rice and Emmett Smith.
This morning we saw the first balloon lift off. I forgot my camera. They go again tonight, tomorrow twice and Sunday morning weather permitting. Maybe tonight I will remember my camera. The weather does not sound good for tomorrow.

This is the third book I am reading this month. I finished two stories in a book of three, and the number 14 of Janet Evonovich books. They are so funny. Stephanie Plum, the character is always in trouble. They really do make you laugh. Every one gets better. I buy all Catherine Coulter books as soon as they are out in paperback. Love the characters in her books also. I'm about half way through.
My squaw is coming right along. It seems way easier to follow than the Warrior was. Not sure why that is. Happy stitching and reading to all of you.
Today is Mamogram day for me.

Today, Heidi received her package with this picture in it so I will post it now. She has it framed already, so she will be showing that I think, on her blog. This is a free design from Gazette 94. You can click on her blog from my friends list. I thank her for sharing her design. The way I took the picture, it looks like a crooked tree, it is straight, I promise.
When looking through the book I bought on Indians, I found this one. How I missed it at first, I don't know. They use it on top of a basket, padded. It looks really nice that way. I put it on big enough cloth to do that if I want to. I still plan to make the lady standing up.
This is how far I got so far. I love doing these Indian blankets. They are fun. Hope you are having fun stitching too. My Daughter in Law, Becky is going to town. She is on her fourth picture now, this time it is Horses.

We are at Lock 7, one of our favorite places. The tall ships left Toronto today on the way to Cleveland, Ohio.

In the past, we have gone to Cleveland to see the tall ships, but this view from the balcony really cannot be beat.
This one is just entering the lock.
It was 90 degrees today, but we just went on the balcony when they were up and ready to exit the lock. This one was flying the Dutch flag.
The one looked oriental, but it was the Pride of Baltimore.
The lock is now back to normal and even as I write this, there is a commercial in the lock waiting to be raised. Thanks George for taking the pictures.
Thanks for finding what I wanted for my new header Heidi. I was looking for Anna Maria from Tom Kitten, never saw this one before.

Happy Fourth of July to all my American Blogging friends. I am certainly proud to be an American. Lee Greenwood says it all in his famous song.
Thanks Kristy for the photo.
