Wrinkles? Me?

While visiting with our three year old April, she all of the sudden looked up at my forehead and said “Mimi, why do you have a crack right there?” She was pointing between my eyes. I said “That isn’t a crack, it’s a wrinkle.” She looked really puzzled, so I explained that as we get…

Vacation Time!

I’m at our home in Oklahoma visiting our kids, playing with grandbabies and hopefully getting some writing done. Oklahoma is beautiful. It has been raining most everyday.

Memorial Day Fun

For Memorial Day we all went to Patti and Rodrick’s for grilled burgers and hot dogs. April loves to swing!

Home Sweet Home

      ┬áJim and I got in from our vacation to Hawaii this week. What a beautiful place! I am not really a water person, but the ocean was absolutely beautiful. We chartered a boat for 4 hours one day and Jim snorkled with our friends, Shelby and Alicia, that met us over there….
