I still mourn the loss of Mr. Rogers. He was a wonderful man, a gentle soul with the smoothest tone of voice and the sharpest intelligence.

And I’ve gotten a few things done:) Except the wash, of course. I think I’ll be dead before that’s ever finished! This week has been fairly productive. Monday was a short day in court – and the weather was beautiful but I was inside. Alas, no exercise, but I did get my paperwork done. Tuesday was also a beautiful day. I spent the morning in … Continue reading It’s been a week

The bad news is all over the radio and TV and internet. 32 young human beings dead at the hands of a gun-toting maniac (who of course turned the gun on himself, … Continue reading Good News and BAD NEWS

As anyone knows who has read this blog, a very big part of my life in the last three and a half years has … Continue reading Love Means Having One More Person to Worry About…

Of course, it will be a weeeee bit larger and I’m a lot less blonde than this model, LOL:) Here’s my beginning pic. Am still working on that blankie for my great niece (she’ll be 12 by the time I’m done at this rate!). But I’ll still have … Continue reading Some new items
