Freaky Friday

As I look back at my Friday I wonder where the time went. I got up early, ate a good breakfast, read my devotions, turned on the computer to read e-mail and then..........

It was 3:00 PM and a beautiful day outside but I didn't ride my bike or go anywhere. I just worked on the ABWA newsletter, clicked on everything possible for RVing, watched birds and squirrels outside my porch window, enjoyed my cats napping next to me, and relaxed. I guess everyone needs a day to do that.

Later on I went to Jerry's, accompanied him to his great granddaughter's fastpitch softball game, and had dinner. We read the newspaper together and worked the puzzles, our favorite thing to do.

Tremendous Thursday!

Thursday was another beautiful sunny day in Ohio. I spent time on the computer, went bike riding, attended the ABWA-sponsored trip to Cleveland to tour the Women's Air & Space Museum, went out to dinner with friends, did laundry and even hung it out on the line to dry! Man, did the sheets smell good when I remade the bed!

Wednesday Was a Wild and Wonderful Day

Yesterday I never even turned on the computer! I went swimming in the morning at the Y with a friend, went to lunch with some other friends, went to a band concert in the evening, followed by the end of a baseball game. Whew! I was tired last night.
Today we have another sunny day with low humidity. I plan to go bike riding.

Golf Score Soars!

Well today I finally received my official handicap for 18 holes. It is 56L (don't know what the "L" stands for). I played 18 holes and got 153. My putting was especially high today. As usual, the weather was gorgeous! Tues. is a great day to play!

Hi, Everyone!

Today we picked up our Triple A TripTicket for the Vermont trip. We have 3 routes to look over including Good Sam Club, Mapquest, and AAA. We want to visit the morgan horse farm in Middlebury, the Teddy Bear Factory in Shellburne, the Von Trapp Family home in Stowe, Ben and Jerry's ice cream factory, go on a lake cruise, rent a kayak, swim, bike ride along the trails, and see EVERYTHING! Besides all of this we have a convention to attend. We should probably leave NOW!
I am thankful that we have a housesitter while we're gone.

A redbreasted grosbeak just came to my bird feeder. How pretty!

It's another beautiful sunny day here in Ohio. I went to early church (9:15) where we celebrated communion, followed by a continental breakast in our fellowship hall. I plan to go for a bike ride before attending the orchestra concert tonight.

Happy Fourth of July!

Here is picture of Patriotic Panda with special effects from

We finally woke up to sunshine today! The birds are on the feeders, everything in the woods is very green from all of the rain this past week, and it promises to be a very beautiful day. I'm just finishing up a load of laundry.

I find this holiday to be bittersweet since Mother would have been 90 on July 2nd. It isn't the same without her. She loved to go shopping and see all of the red, white, and blue dishes, towels, decorations, etc. at this time of year. Our neighbors always put on a good fireworks show in the circle which she enjoyed.

'Hope you are enjoying your picnics, barbeques, parades, and fireworks wherever you are on this day.

Try out a new website!

To have more fun with your photos, go to I took a photo of Jerry lighting a cigar and used the cartoonize feature.

Panda Cat=Cover Girl

Panda always looks like she is posing for a magazine cover. She is precious and adorable and she KNOWS it! Whenever a box comes into the house with groceries, Market Day, etc. she loves to make it into a bed.

Taz Wants Equal Coverage

Taz Marie is a beautiful black cat with a sweet personality. She is a little shy around strangers but isn't as big a scaredy cat as she used to be. I love her dearly! While we were traveling she earned the nickname "Taz-meow" but soon settled down to life on the road. While in Memphis she became "Taz Marie Presley!"

Hoby loves riding on his couch in the RV. He can look out the windows and see everything all around.

RV is air-tight!

After experiencing leaks around the diningroom window in Illinois, I caulked around all of the windows upon returning to Indiana. After 2 days of rain, today I checked the window and it is dry!
I put up a new hummingbird feeder yesterday and got a customer already. The other birds are going crazy over the suet feeder. I have chickadees, woodpeckers, cardinals, and a bluejay.

Hoby is staying with me today while his daddy is in the city. His favorite store is Petsmart.
