It wasn't a wild party. How often does one turn 60? My sweet neighbor's family prepared a surprise for HER (not me) while she was at another party in the afternoon! Since there was no driving involved and only about 150 feet of walking, I had ... Read more

I found this little sculpture while checking out the re-opened "Super" Walmart. Walking when I shouldn't. Worth the twenty bucks. It fits my sunroom and my personality. ... Read more

Monday, May 14, 2018      18 comments

I spent a bit of time with my 95 yr old neighbor yesterday and enjoyed every minute! Bright, lively and a fun neighborhood "mom" to look up to although I top her by about 14 inches! She'd broken her replacement hip in January in a fall, rec... Read more
