Birthday aftermath

This has to go down as one of the best birthdays after.  I got the most wonderful, thoughtful presents including several sets of chimes, plants and other decorations for my sitting area from local people as well as a stainless steel milk tote from one of my very good old friends from Massachusetts.  Wonderful!  No […]

Rabbits!

Yet another Monday …

Quick update

Things have been a bit traumatic here.  Wally spent Friday night and a good bit of Saturday AM in the emergency room with kidney stones.  I’ve never been around anyone suffering with kidney stones and I hope that I never see it again.  That poor man suffered terribly.  The emergency room sucked, sucked, sucked.  We […]
