Happy Birthday, to ME

Well, I made it to 71 years old. Whoever thought I would be this old? Certainly not me, particularly when I was 9, or 10, or 11. I’m happy, healthier than I’ve been in 20 years, and very content with my life.


The Mexican restaurant seemed to think I needed to wear a sombrero while they sang “Happy Birthday” to me on Sunday!

Fires at the base of Mt Rainier. We need rain. Everything is tinder-dry. Whoever thought we – in the Pacific Northwest – would be saying “We need rain.”

Throw-back Thursday

Visiting SFA

In July of 1964, Big Al and I visited Stephen F. Austin State College (now University) in Nacogdoches, TX, to see if we wanted to finish our schooling there. We decided we wanted to, and matriculated in September. We both lived in (separate) dorms – before the days when men and women shared dorms, or living arrangements before they were married. But by June 1965 we were married and living in an apartment while Al finished school. Good Times!

Nearly Wordless Wednesday


The garden is producing nicely. Squash, pickling cucumber, lemon cucumbers. I donated 5.5 lbs of squash and cucumbers to the Food Bank on Saturday. Producing faster than I can eat it.
