We went to town today and saw some neighbors at the restaurant. The wife is retiring from teaching at the local ag college and my mouth engaged before my brain. I said something like, "Hey, didn't I see where you were retiring? When's the big party?" Aaaaand that's when my brain caught up with me. The party was to be a surprise. Her husband redirected well and we just went on, but I'm still MORTIFIED that I spilled the beans. (She's a sharp gal. It won't take her long to figure it…Continue
Isn't that the case most of the time during the holidays, running behind. I was able to deliver the charity blanket throws last week.
On Saturday a church in another town runs what they call "Mobile Santa'. What that is a a travel trailer hauled by a pickup. The trailer is all decked out with Christmas lights.

Today has been a long exhausting day as it is the eve of our scheduled pack-out. Exhausted because for the last few weeks I've been setting aside everything I need for the next 6 weeks including…Continue
We bought a new car this past summer. We didn't notice it didn't have mud guards on it. I would've made that part of the deal(darn). So, yesterday we drove down to the local garage to have them installed. When I went to get into hubby's toyota truck, we discovered I couldn't get my knee under the dash. I had not been in it since I got the new knee. Soooo, stop laughing...we get the bright idea... I should ride in the back of the pickup! If, I were 5 that would have been heaven. We only live…Continue
