Falling in Love is Easy…It’s Living It That’s Hard

I love Fall. The leaves have been spectacular again this year. The vibrant colors explode like July fireworks and linger so you can enjoy them for a few days, not just seconds.

Kids on skateboards reminded me, love is patient

 They were on skateboards… little guys…two of them one was maybe 8 and the other looked to be about 6 years old. It looked like they were mostly talking… but it was where they choose to have their conversation that annoyed me… They were jawing right in the middle of the road. I was in […]

Is it Denali or Mt. McKinley?

Our time in Denali National Park was limited. The Alaska Pipeline was actually number one on my “Had to See List.” And we wanted to see the North Pole. We wanted to see Fairbanks and eat in at least one of  Guy Fieri‘s suggested places on Diners,  Drive–Ins and Dives . We wanted to see Seward and Haines. I […]

Daddy’s Hearing Aid – Prayer

  There are so many things that I could say about my dad. He was such a good daddy! He was quiet. He was hard working. Kind. Good looking- I look like my daddy. He loved to garden. I’m not sure if he loved gardening because he enjoyed watching it grow or the influence of […]
