Dusty Dreams

There are about nineteen days left in 2016. I never make New Year resolutions, but I do always look forward to what may be in store for us/me in the upcoming new year. Ever an adventurer…… My future at this point is rather swelling with fear  anticipation. Last Thursday was the last day of my son’sContinue reading “Dusty Dreams”

O Christmas Tree – Around The Burg

My last Christmas in New Jersey was momentous. My daughter-in-law and my youngest grandson took me to a Christmas Tree Farm. It was magical in so many ways. That day was cold and cloudy and the back drop of the farm was woods and wooden fences. They raised pigs there. We looked in on theContinue reading “O Christmas Tree – Around The Burg”

Around The Burg – Again…….

As I have posted before, The Burg is a small town in the mid-west.  It happens to be the county seat.  One of the treasures in this area are the other towns surrounding us.  Some are in the same county and some are not.  But most are only between eight and 30 miles away. IContinue reading “Around The Burg – Again…….”

Friday in The Burg

It is Friday.  The weather has warmed to a normal temperature.  The sky is blue and the sun is bright. Tomorrow an old friend is stopping by for a night, with her daughter and doggie, on their way to a new adventure in the eastern part of our country. I love catching up with oldContinue reading “Friday in The Burg”

Autumn is still here but the trees and the colors have definitely transitioned to a wintry look.  Sad in a lot of ways, but still beautiful. These pictures were taken in Knob Noster State Park .  We were the only two people there.  I love that, but I feel like people are missing out on greatContinue reading “Transitions”

As I have posted before, I have the privilege of helping our youngest son and his lovelyContinue reading “Love Hurts”

So Long, Farewell

In two days we will have moved all our worldly goods out of the KCMO area.  It was a great tour of duty. Moving is exciting to me and exhausting.  It also stirs up all kinds of emotions. Our last five and half years in this location has been very good, yet very hard inContinue reading “So Long, Farewell”

Whistles Callin’ Me Away

I have the earliest memories of longing for adventure.  We lived in a simple ranch house, just big enough for us.  The yard was big enough to hide in and play baseball or whatever.  We had woods across the street that we took ownership of.  But, when I attended elementary school and was invited overContinue reading “Whistles Callin’ Me Away”
