decided to post it. Thanksgiving was the last Holiday I got to
spend with Richard and it will always be a bittersweet time for

When you live on a farm or ranch, there is birth, there is life and then there comes death. Birth is a miraculous event that makes all of us smile and rejoice in life.
Then life guides us along on our path upon this Earth. Sometimes the path is smooth… Read full post »
I went up and had lunch with David one day when we lived in
Texas, and did a bit of shopping. I was talking with a couple of
ladies while standing in line at the checkout counter when we
started talking about traveling.
The two middle-aged women said that they had… Read full post »
Living in Michigan, one of the things I cherished was the chance to see the Northern Lights. Of all naturally occurring heavenly phenomena, few come close to a night with a magnificent northern lights display. Flickering curtains of dancing light against the dark skies, always amazed me, and entrance… Read full post »
