Double Sevens

Today I hit the double sevens – 77 years old. I’m just glad I have such a wonderful partner to go through this part of our lives. ‘Happy birthday to me…’

It’s Monday Again

As we drive home from Fort Collins, enjoy your Monday humor. First, a sign of the times. Also works to prevent carjacking…

Got to love a dog and a baby…

So true…

Love your children no matter what…

Always good advice…

No, we’re not…

Never with ketchup…

Yay, bacon…

The proper way to prepare avocado toast…

Definitely hickory smoked…

Love this diet…

Another truth…

Recognizing your problem is the first step…

Love this…

Finally, a Star Trek pun to end your journey…

Finally, an extra. A video of our visit yesterday, Sunday, to the Fort Collins Farmers Market. There’s a peach farm in Palisades, Colorado, that raises some of the best peaches we can get in our part of the world. In addition to the peaches, we also got some corn to take home, some pretzel sandwiches for lunch, and some kettle corn for Juliet. It was a fun time.

Happy Birthdays

Last night we went to Marie’s parents to have some desert and celebrate birthdays. Yesterday was Wade Daniel’s birthday so he received a lot of fun presents.

Leah’s birthday is actually next Saturday, August 20, but she was included in this birthday celebration.

It was a fun day connecting with a lot of Marie’s family – her folks, Gary and Nancy Jo, and her sister Melissa, her husband Nick and their daughters, Maggie, Kaley and Clara. Melissa, Nick and the girls will come down in October for the second weekend of Balloon Fiesta. We always enjoy having them with us so we’re looking forward to it.

Good News Wednesday

Rain, Rain, Don’t Go Away

Do not be angry with the rain; it simply does not know how to fall upwards. – Vladimir Nabokov

Sunday night, the rain definitely did not fall upwards here. We got over an inch in about 45 minutes. For us, it’s a blessing.
