Just wanted to share what I rescued from my parents' trailer. Earlier this month, we went and visited my Dad who was in the hospital. Anyway, my Dad and Mom saved everything..... I mean my Dad never met a receipt that he didn't like. They went…Continue
July is ...A night sky filled with colorful cascading fireworks as the United States celebrates its birth. (I do not want to think about all of the booms and pops and sizzles and other sounds I hear.)The middle of the year or mid-summer. Vacations…Continue

As I said, it is a LOVE--HATE relationship!
