    Happy Anniversary & Al’s First Novel Published

    Hi everyone.  On June 10, 1976 Al and I were married in Vancouver, WA.  We celebrated 41 years on June 10, 2017.  It’s been a wonderful 41 years and we look forward to many more. We met it September 1974, the year I graduated. I am doing okay on getting back on track with my Program.  I was doing really good staying off the Diet Dr. Pepper but have slipped the past couple of days.  I will get back on track with that.  I still haven’t started walking yet but the grandkids and grocery shopping helps me get some exercise.  Hopefully our pool will be getting used when the hot weather comes to stay.  I’m not journaling yet but I am trying to eat smaller portions.  My sleep is still wacko; up long stretches, sometimes 24 hours or more.  I know that is not helping me stay on Program.   Last Friday we had a wonderful BBQ at LeRoy’s house.  We were sorry that Rachel had to work and couldn’t be there.  LeRoy has the backyard beautifully landscaped with so many flowers.  He put up a new swingset for the kids, along with a sandbox – their favorite!  We had loaded…

LeRoy is the Garden Center Manager at his Fred Meyer store.  He loves it.  He loves doing up his yard in the many flowers he sells.  The kids love helping him as you can see in the collage.  Did I ever tell you how much I love these kids? Speaking of the grandkids, Al and I will be seeing them today.  It’s been about a week.  We got Emily a little Frozen suitcase with wheels and a handle, for when she spends the night.  This will let Emily be able to bring some of her…

    Memorial Day – Never Forget

    Memorial Day is a day to remember our fallen heroes.  We are a military family with our Dads, Uncles, both boys, and Al, all who have served their country.  This is a special day to remember those who died serving our country in making the United States safe for all of us.  Please take a moment and think about them and the ultimate sacrifice they made.
