Watching the snow falling, along with the temperature! Waiting for this week to pass and then it’s off to sunny California for two weeks with my sis and her family. It’s been two years since we...

Ben, our oldest grandson called me yesterday to tell me that he and his Annie got engaged! I knew he had bought a ring but had not popped the question so I couldn’t say anything. Now it’s on Fa...
