#TWT/3TC – Hope

Even though we’re drenched from walking the trail in the rain, we had fun and hope to do it again.

Oldest and Youngest

Debbie at “Travel With Intent” challenged us this week to post opposites for the One Word Sunday prompt.

This cherished photo is of my son at 2 months old, held by his great-great-grandfather on his 102 birthday. They represented our youngest and oldest family members at the time.

Happy International Women’s Day!

The #IWD2021 theme is #ChooseToChallenge. Let us all commit to challenge inequality, call out bias, question stereotypes, and help forge an inclusive world. You don’t have to be a woman to share this commitment. You simply need to support the cause.


Today I celebrate women everywhere, recognizing their strength and power to push through life with their head held high, regardless the circumstances.

Happy National Women’s Day!

Slow Down, Dave!

Dave is usually assiduous when it comes to the new car he got for his birthday but his behavior today was so undignified, loudly bragging about the vehicle’s horsepower and how fast he drives to work. He must’ve forgotten about the icy roads when he drove off at such ridiculously high speeds and slid across the road. It looked bad from my point of view and I’ll confer with him tomorrow but hopefully the trauma of spinning out is enough to slow him down from now on.
