about the crazy weather we’ve been having: It’s not boring! Many days (in fact nearly all the days) in July have seen 90 + degrees. It’s been hot and dry and there have been many fires, severa...


We got home early afternoon yesterday. The trip went fine. Our son and his wife moved here to the Denver area over 30 years ago and we made a few trips here from our home in North Dakota. In ...

So much going on… Along with the arrival ( 4 weeks early!) of great grandson, Cecil, we received word that Mike is being recognized again by professional song writers. His mentor submitted 4 so...


Little guy arrived around 7:00 PM. He came a bit early but is good size. Thank you God, for your gift and your never ending love.

I read that this day commemorates the strongest wind speed ever recorded…I forget where it was or how strong it was, but something over 240 mph… Now that’s some wind. The forecast here indicate...


I went to bed a few minutes past my usual time last night. I was wide awake. After I lay there for about an hour and a half I got up and went to the bathroom. Back to bed. Still wide awake. ...

Prosebox is going away! I am not sure I can handle another start. I’ll have to give it some thought. I’d sure miss my friends here… but I do follow some of you on Facebook. It’s not the same,...


Not much new here, but it’s been awhile since I let you all know I’m still here. Holy week is here and Bob and I made it to church services yesterday, Palm Sunday. I don’t know why, but we have ...

Granddaughter having surgery for appendicitis this morning. She’s the one who lost her job just before Christmas. She was able to find another, (better ?) one and started on Jan. 2. I don’t su...


Yesterday we had a lovely lunch and visit with Joyce, my best friend in college. I think it had been about 20 years since I last saw her. She lives on a farm in Wyoming. Her husband passed awa...


Before 2017 is filed away into history, I wanted to add a couple more things to the record. Dec. 31 was a day full of surprises…all good. Early in the morning I was contacted on FB by the daught...


This is the next-to-last day of 2017. Looking back, I’m remembering some really scary times and some really good times. The scary times came with Bob’s health issues. In March he had a real bad...


A little light snow here in the pre-dawn hour on the first day of winter. After several days of temps in the high 50’s, it’s not supposed to get above freezing today. The good news is that the...
