Memorial Day

Memorial Day Today is a day that we set aside not just for a picnic, but to honor all those who have given their lives to keep us free. I found this poem and think it says it all. Everyone have a safe and happy Memorial Day.———–   Freedom Is Not Free – Kelly Strong […]

Mother’s Day

Today is a wonderful day that we reserve for our Mother’s. Mom’s do so much for us and give up more than we can ever imagine just to make sure that we get a good start in life. I thank my Mom for all that she gave me and gave up for me: a world filled with […]

School Years

Looking though Mom’s school yearbooks brought back some memories of my own. How we look so  young in our freshman year not knowing what lay ahead of us, but ready to find out.

Girls night out

Girl Scout meeting days started our “girls night out”. Right after school I would walk to the church that we held our meetings in. We would do all kinds of things from planning for our camping trips, learning what it takes to work as a team, and having fun learning new songs and dances. After […]

Snow Shoveling

Ah another blast of artic air and white swirly “stuff” called snow. At least this time it was the fluffy kind of snow which is easy to shovel. It wouldn’t be so bad if the wind would stop. Burr it is cold. I’ve shoveled twice and I think I’m done for this round of snow. […]

Check your states travel information map. 2.)Turn your light on. […]

Be Prepared for Winter Driving

I have been a Girl Scout  from 3rd grade through 12th grade and beyond. You would think that the one phrase that would have stayed with me was :”Be prepared.” I can’t tell you how many winters I have not been prepared for the winter days of travel. Oh I did the right thing every year […]
