Hello Out There!
Haven't been blogging or much of anything the last few days. Like all of us, been thinking about Thanksgiving (at our house this year) and Christmas. When younger, it seemed like a long time between the two holidays -- not anymore!
What to... Read more
It is climbing into the 60's already (just 10 am) and we are going out with my business partners to lunch. Sorry to lose the opportunity to garden, but this will be a nice segue to winter and Thanksgiving. One partner is undergoing radiation the... Read more
