Life with a car guy

April 20, 2022


So dear Mr. Ken is a car guy, above all else. I am glad for that since I am not. He even looks forward to taking my car to get the oil changed. I think that may be because there is a Dunkin Donuts on the way to the oil change place. 🙂 Since I […]

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 […]

Men and their machines

March 9, 2022


We all know the special bond that men have with their machines. This bond is even stronger than any human bonds. So Mr. Ken and I live in New England. In spite of global warming, we still get lots of snow. But Mr. Ken, being the organized person he is, has a snowblower. And being […]

Spring is coming!

March 2, 2022


It has been a long winter, to say the least. Yes, the days are getting longer and the sun is getting brighter, but we just had a big snowstorm with 9 inches of snow. It was all of 9 degrees Farenheit (-13 degrees Celsius) the day after the storm. Brrrrr. But spring is coming! How […]

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 […]
