This was so scary, Brad, especially the last few seconds!

I think Jacob and his buddies would love this...ok, I might enjoy it a little bit, too.

Just thinking about going to a pumpkin patch & haunted house makes it feel a little fall-ish!

I hope y'all have a great day!

This was at the Collings farm this morning for our picnic. We had a wonderful morning !
That looks very relaxing!!


Seawaters - have fun on your overnight adventure!!



Good morning everyone! Just a quick drop in. Unfortunately I don't have time to catch up right now. I got to work this morning & after about 30 minutes - poof - electric goes out! And it was out for a little while. Can't do much with no electric. So I went home & started making cookies! I was just ready to put the 1st batch in the oven when I get the call that power is back on. Grrr! I was hoping it would stay out all day!!! Ha ha ha! So I baked 1 batch & brought warm cookies back for the boys! Guess I will finish them tonight!


We had some crazy storms come through overnight. Windy, lightening, 1" rain...my alerts from TWC kept going off on my phone. But all is good! Thankfully!!!


Hope is well with you all! Have a great Christmassy day!!

Good morning, all. It is a sun shiny day here in northern CA. We have one dinner meeting tonight in Red Bluff and one next week in Redding. For some odd reason, I am really sleepy and it is not even 9:00 a.m. yet! I might have to take a nap, especially since I did not sleep all that well last night. TTYL

I have been to Vegas 5 times when the temps have got near 110 and will take the dry Vegas heat any day over our 95-101 humidity heat we have here. We would walk up and down the strip in that heat and it didn't bother us too bad. I can't last 5 minutes in this awful Texas heat here. Blah! I guess you have to suffer this junk here in Texas to appreciate the heat in Vegas. BUT I would take the heat where you live over both places!!!!!!!

Can I move in with you guys for the summer??? Pleeeeease!!!!

Got caught in that once (and ONLY once). The bubbles are coffee-flavored.
