 road trip to Iowa! We went in March, it's really a pretty state.  That's really a windmill farm in the distance.
Our last trip to Sackets


We went on a Caribbean Cruise with the family a few years back......
 Karyn's Birthday
 Kelly playing bingo
 Sophie waiting for dinner
Dalton and Kimberly waiting for the movie under the stars to start..Having a little snack...


Definitely the funniest day of the year for me every year is "playing" in the DiStefano Tourney...I have never brought my clubs, we never even get a scorecard and I may have hit a ball once?? Not so sure of that. We basically drive around the course for about 9 hours dancing, laughing, drinking, eating, giggling, singing, peeing in the woods, and repeat. So fun!!!

Go (under)

Apparently I can Go under the hypnotic spell very easily....
I think it's fun to be hypnotized..Here I am playing a musically instrument...


Ann Marie, would like to GO, but she can't find half of her shoes.


Ready, Set, Go!

Pat Newell, Kathy Allan, Jeanie Greenwood, and Dottie Arnold demonstrating "Go!" I was walking with these women and taking pictures for the blog.  They had a lot of suggestions for the whole month.  I thought this was their best.

What I read

I read to much,  I have to many favorite authors to list.  I thought everyone might enjoy reading this, got it off the internet a long time ago. 

What I Read

I am almost done reading the fourth book in this series and we've been watching the HBO series as well.  Of course, I don't own the 'physical' books; it's all neatly located in my Nook.  At times, a little too much sexual content, but on a whole, LOVE this seemingly endless story! I think a fifth book now exists, continuing this tale.

what i read

What I Read

Love inspirational sayings, quotes, short jokes, words of wisdom.

What I read...

Half off sign at a second hand store and the car moves in the direction......
It wasn't as much as what my sisters and I bought that day it was the fun we had...
We almost got an award for being there the longest...

The new floor for the old shed.  Bernie is, with the help of Bonnie and Chuck of course, attempting to move and rebuild our old shed.   This is only the beginning.  More, later.

These are black-capped chickadees. 

I was holding out to get a picture of our little hummingbird friends but, although we see them at the feeders often, they are really timid.  I haven't been able to get a good shot.  So here's a photo of one of our feeders!


I've used this before, wish it was clearer, but this is what happens when you don't pay as much attention as you should.


Have you heard the game "Draw Something?"..My sister Cheryl and I played many games yesterday and every one she drew had something to do with my birthday...
She was really quite clever...
                                                 Can you guess what this one is?...

"New" Birds

They just hatched last night, there are three yellowish (which will be white, one is behind her legs) and one grey.  Thought I'd share since this is bird day.

Downy Woodpecker

Happy Birthday MOM!

This was a display in the mall in Boston as I was heading up the escalator that day.

More Birds

Line up..
At the end of our cruise in Jan. Dorit and Avi
showed us around LA..We went on a nature trail..



I guess you can't see the 8 bluejays as well as I expected..Jim feeds the birds and we had one bluejay for the longest time and then all of a sudden there were 8 out there...I had to take this picture through the window so it's not clear or close...Now they are all gone again..


A chicken chair.  If you can't read the price tag it says $699.99.  Quite an expensive bird.
