I’m back! I’m back from an overnight trip to the Finger Lakes. WOW it was fun, but by day 2, I was horribly homesick. I missed my kids and I missed my kitty. They told me Livvy was terribly lonely, meowing and whining and pining out the window waiting for me. She was pretty depressed […]

Oh, gals, do you remember discovering horses at about age 10? It seems that every single little girl LOVES horses at about that age. I used to draw them, paint them, write stories about them– such beautiful creatures! I never did get a horse, never even rode one before. As the years have passed, I […]

I saw the Pixar film “Up” recently. What a cute, cute movie!!!

But I love “The Incredibles” […]
