Bonnie came over for a stroll around her old neighborhhod which happens to be a few blocks from my current neighborhood. The lake and river at the park is a lot bigger than it was when they were here…and there are Too Many Ducks.

Then I went out…

Then I went out to play with the girls while Darryl and Angela had a date night.

We did a very fun little photo shoot at the beach and then had dinner there, and dessert, of course.

I’ve spent a lot of the last several days with my older sister Lona because of an unexpected hospital stay for her husband Hartley. Hartley’s condition seems back to normal with his infection under control so they’re going home tomorrow. Now everyone needs to SLEEP.

Below are some pictures I’ve been collecting.

Windy’s older son’s daughter…

Windy’s older son’s daughter and son, Anya and Xander, dressed up for a ’50’s party. Xander is with a friend I don’t know, and how is it, just yesterday they were adorable little kids.


Windy’s younger son’s son,…

Windy’s younger son’s son, Jack, lives in Texas and the school was holding a contest for pictures for the State Fair and Rodeo. Jack made it to the finals but I don’t know what happened after that.

It’s so good! Look at the stomping hoof and the flying fence and those wonderful clouds of dust. Good job Jack!


I bought a groupon…

I bought a groupon based on Windy’s recommendation for a full body stretch, where a professional therapist twists you up like a pretzel. It felt great.

She told me I stand wrong. And then she told me I walk wrong. All in the sweetest possible way. What she said actually feels right and I’m going to try to take her advice.
