Do-si-do and away we go!

September 30, 2015


Here we are ready to embark on our square dancing adventure: Oh dear, I see we have turned into one of those couples that dresses alike and looks alike. :) We arrive at the hall and Mr. Ken goes straight towards the refreshments to check them out. He comes back with a big smile on […]

Thoughts on the end of summer

September 23, 2015


I’m torn about summer coming to an end. On one hand, I will miss all the hours of daylight. I love getting up early – can we say 4 am?. By the time I’m done with my healthy breakfast at 5 am, it’s already getting light outside. On the other hand, this has been a […]

Yee haw!

Well actually, I was perusing YouTube and looking for more Jessica Smith videos that included her adorable French bull dog, Peanut. Mr. Ken, yells up the stairs, “I need you to come outside quickly.” I […]
