I've thrown them back many a time. I've made lemonade. I'm not able to duck these ones. DH had a short, 12 hour short, respite from pain. It came back with a vengeance yesterday and knocked him down. I'm guessing the stent clogged with the ... Read more
Can I have some seriously reduced-fat cheese with that whine?

DH underwent a successful procedure today. I've been in healthcare for over 40 years and back in the day (yes, I said that) what he went through would have required major surgery and at least 5 days in the hospital. Fast forward though the t... Read more

Sunday, June 21, 2015      8 comments

Bryce is one of my favorite places. The first time we visited was the in-better-shape years and we hiked into the bowl. Wow is all I could say. Well, not really. It was hot. Hot like you were in a dry sauna under the scorching sun hot. Took a 5 ... Read more
