Burr! It took about 2 minutes outside the plane to make me want to turn around and go back. Even though the temps at GCNP were cold at night, it wasn't bone chilling damp. Oh well, we can view my pictures. I couldn't tell you the names of th... Read more

I've almost lost my voice. We started talking at 4 am Monday before the driver picked us up and didn't stop until my friend drove away from my house at 1 am this morning. Although we've been BFFs since I was pregnant with my youngest, now turn... Read more

22. What is my style? Odd question for a 62 yo, overweight female "lack of" fashionista with a farm leaning. I'll take this idea off of my wardrobe and put it onto my personality. My style is kinda tough. I think fast, act fast and regret... Read more

Tuesday, September 20, 2016      9 comments

Idol is a funny word and I like STRONGDAWGs take of "role model". I value people who are kind, living and dead, and try to emulate their behaviors. For instance, my dad is still my hero. Those who knew him were treated fairly, honestly and wi... Read more
Not in my backyard. Not anywhere. Stop it.

All politics aside. I am astounded and saddened that the recent violence of the past few days is in my backyard. Streets I've walked. For years we've been living with "See something, say something." Telling my daily city commuting childr... Read more

We went to visit Dad's resting place today as his birthday is tomorrow. A nice two hour ride, good conversation and I felt relaxed. I pointed out a few things to DH as he hasn't been there in two years. Here's this improvement and here is where ... Read more

Day 15 blog challenge. My favorite holiday. Not.
Thursday, September 15, 2016      10 comments
