A Favorite Neighbor

This soulful canine is one of our favorite neighbors! On August 30th, I introduced you to our new neighbors, a young family that moved in next door.  Both Frankie the dog and  JJ the baby bring a smile to my face whenever I see them. Occasionally when I drive up to my house I can see Frankie peering out the window to greet my arrival.  Perhaps he'd like to go out for a walk?!

Positive Medical Care!

This is how I felt yesterday after ten miserable days of illness, which got increasingly more difficult with each passing day. Just as I was praying for a quick, relatively painless death, a young woman swept me into her office and diagnosed pneumonia. After just ONE antibiotic pill, I feel human again and am ready to go out to vote today. Praise the miracle of modern medicine!

Trolley ride at Lakewood Cemetery

On October 10 I introduced you to Lakewood Cemetery where I just finished an OLLI six week, once-a-week-afternoon course on the history of the cemetery, including its development, current condition and relationship to the Twin Cities population. In addition to lectures, we had field trips and the grand finale was this trolley ride that canvassed the grounds. Believe it or not, it was fascinating and I hated to see its end. Stories connected to some of the sites, famous residents (some of which I showed you here and here) the varied tombstones, the unbelievably beautiful grounds that includes a lake, greenhouses, crematorium operates with an eight million dollar yearly budget.

November, 2018 Theme "Friends"

You are probably tired of seeing photos of these two pals, but they are the best example of the theme because they are fast friends: Wild Wendy, our little rescue dog and our granddog Lexi, another rescue dog. They both play together, race and wrestle together, share walks, and take snoozes in various places in our house.  Here they are relaxing with another old friend, a rather tattered and torn as well as much loved Kanga and Roo: BFF-Best Friends Together.

ASIDE: I need to attend to some other areas of my life so I will not be posting every day but will visit  sporadically because I consider each of you my FRIEND!

ADDED LATER: I have a noticed that my comments on several of your posts are not appearing where normally I have had no past issues.  I suppose it's my computer!!
