Happy Anniversary, Anniversary, Anniversary

I really shouldn’t be here. I have to figure out what activity we’re going to do tomorrow at Dino Camp. I’ve got Thursday and Friday covered, but not tomorrow. Not to worry, though. I’ll think of something!! The beginning of June is just one anniversary after another and I couldn’t let it slide by without…

My Week In Arkansas, Part Two

I’m not sure what my deal is, but I’m having the hardest time getting the Arkansas trip written. In fact I’m having the hardest time getting anything written. Or done. I think I’ll blame the puppy.

This year to celebrate I’ll be receiving a Venti White Chocolate Mocha from the lady behind…

Just Some Stuff

Today is my parents’ 54th Wedding Anniversary. It’s hard to believe it was four years ago that my sisters and I had a 50th Anniversary reception for them. I’m pretty sure it’s even harder for them to believe they’ve been married for more than half a century. I can’t imagine what it must be like…
