WOD Challenge 6-14-22 SOLD!!

Dad’s House

Before I get to my post, I have to report that my dad’s house is sold!! That was quick! Five days on the market!

I am so relieved and happy. We got a cash buyer, so no headaches for us. She came in a little lower than what we asked for, but thats ok. To get it one and done is worth it to me!


I’m enjoying Dan’s book ”Knuckleheads” which is available now on Amazon. I tell you what, Zach and Billy, the main characters, are no chickens. Dealing with the growing pains of being a teenager in the years before all the modern conveniences we have nowadays, plus transitioning into young adults would be enough for most boys, but these guys have to deal with magical powers as well. One deals with lucid dreams and one deals with premonitions, but only one has a dad walking through this wilderness with him. Teaching the boys the values of having a work ethic, as well as guiding them on the proper way to deal with adversity, I think its a great read for all ages.

Just click the link (the book title) in the above paragraph to grab a copy! It’s available for the great price of $2.99 right now! I like to support my fellow bloggers when I’m able.

What a Fun Reunion! WOD Challenge 6-13-22

Saturday afternoon, my long-time friend Michelle and her boyfriend, Kerry, were scheduled for a visit to hang out and go swimming.

I invited Chris, my youngest, and Connie and Bubba (David’s bro and his partner) over to bbq, swim, and also reunite with Kerry and Michelle. This reunion was so exciting for me because I had not seen my friends in almost one year! That is unheard of for us, but they live almost two hours away. My dad passed in November of 2021, I would have seen them then but COVID prevented that.

What a blunder that I didn’t take pictures, so I will post some from past get togethers. We had a blast, but stayed in the pool too long, partied too much, and I’m still feeling the ill effects today! I’m not twenty five anymore!!

Michelle and me before our last concert.

Kerry brought us some farm-raised eggs, Dave cooked ribs, sausage (from his new Butcher Box) and brats, Connie made cold pasta salad, and a pan of chopped fruit. We had a variety of chips and dips, and the beer and Truly’s washed it all down. We went in pretty early, yet the damage was done. We’d been in the pool since about 3:30 and went to bed around midnight. Connie was sober, so she drove Bubba home, Chris also went home, but Michelle and Kerry had already planned to stay the night. Good thing!

We all had a great time catching up and reminiscing! They left around 10 am Sunday morning. The groomer had come to take care of Whiskey around 9am. I missed church and choir, but watched online. They did a fabulous job with ”Come On Children Let’s Sing.” It was the first time I’ve missed singing in the choir since I joined.

How do you describe wind?

With a photo, of course!

Por Supuesto!

Now, on a completely different subject, I wear a watch I don’t have to wind! How we gonna play this one today? 😉

And now, a brief ode to Dan’s sweet Maddie

“The answer my friend,

Is blowin’ in the wind

The answer is blowin’ in the wind.”

So sorry for your loss, Dan. She will be greatly missed by us all. 😞💕🙏
