Pool treasure

Hi everyone,

I’ve been spending my time in the deep end of the pool taking pictures of crickets, spiders, beetles, and snails. Yesterday I turned to the shallow end and look what I found!

I talked soft and low to her and last night she was still here. She was still here this morning. I hope I get to keep her!

Hi everyone,

What a birthday I had! Sandy, Robin, and Jeff made every bit of it special. It was truly a day to remember.

To all the friends, family, and loved ones who called, wrote poems, and sent wishes, thank you! I did my best to keep up but at one point I fell behind with my thank-you notes and then Facebook went haywire and I was no longer able to post anything. It was very frustrating. I hope you know that I read and loved each reminder that we all live in the same community.

This morning it’s back in the wheel for me. Lots to do before we head back to Missouri.
