Finding my inner artist

April 27, 2022


So Mr. Ken and I came home from our weekly hike and I was excited to see two packages from Amazon awaiting us. Mr. Ken looked at me and said, “What did you order from Amazon this time?” I replied, “Um, I can’t remember.” And then Mr. Ken gave me another look. You all know […]

The guys are back

April 13, 2022


Our beloved little friends, Sir Oliver, Toby and Sir Angus are back with a very special message for Mr. Ken. It was Mr. Ken’s birthday earlier this week. Happy birthday to my dear husband. 🙂 A special thanks for one of Mr. Ken’s friends for photoshopping this image.

Reflections during a hike

April 6, 2022


Mr. Ken and I are very happy that we are able to enjoy nature at our favorite lake. During the Pandemic, it was too crowded, but now it is not. Yay. Unfortunately Mr. Ken recently broke his wrist and he has to wear a brace. At least it is not a cast. To his credit, […]

The world’s oldest gangsta’

March 30, 2022


Covid restrictions are less and less these days. Even Mr. Ken and I have ventured out of our house more. We are happy to be able to hike around our favorite lake, which is also where we kayak. When everything was shut down and people were at home, this place got very crowded. We went […]

It’s Peep time!

March 23, 2022


One of the hardest things about this 2 year Pandemic has been the lack of Peeps. The Peeps factory in Bethelem PA shut down for a while so there were no Peeps to be found anywhere. What a tragedy. I was so happy when the factory reopened in March, 2021. I immediately went out and […]

Tea time!

March 16, 2022


So our little friends, Sir Oliver, Sir Angus and Toby, are proud UK citizens. They have adjusted well to life “across the pond,” here in the good old U.S.A. Although Sir Oliver misses having peas with every meal, Sir Angus misses his kippers and Toby misses his little Corgi friends at Buckingham Palace. Occasionally, we […]

It is “BearTime”

February 23, 2022


Sir Oliver, Sir Angus and Toby are very concerned about their beloved Queen’s health after hearing that she tested positive for COVID. They wish they were back home so they could cheer her up! They decided that the second best thing would be to post this photo on Nancy’s blog and hope that it goes […]

Pandemic perspectives

February 16, 2022


Our worlds have been turned upside down from this never-ending Pandemic. I always try to see the bright side of things though. Some recent experiences made me laugh. Free for all Yep, I was very excited to order and receive the “free” rapid Covid test kits. (Er, they aren’t really free though, are they since […]

Having fun in the snow

February 9, 2022


Toby has been dying to get out and play in the snow. We bought him a little snow saucer and he gave it a try today. Even though he’s never been on the snow before, he insisted on going down the expert slope. Somehow, he managed to stay on his saucer! What do you do […]

Snow day!

February 2, 2022


Well, the big snowstorm is over and the sun is shining once more. Our guys from across the Pond didn’t see much snow in the UK and were eager to see what it looked like outside. This is what they saw when we opened the door this morning! What did you see when you opened […]
