Getaway


I was kidnapped Saturday by two of my kampers. They whisked me away for a lunch with another kamper. The four of us talked and laughed and had a great time. We were so involved with catching up ..... I think we may have annoyed our server!

We could not bear to part and ended up at the Apple Wagon to wander up and down each and every aisle, lest we miss a bargain. I love this place. They have booths for vendors selling their wares and they have garden items from Mexico. Their prices are reasonable, too. I fell in love with the frog. I thought the price was too high, but they took 20% off for me and I got him! He is a big guy and won't be swallowed up when my gardens burst in blooms. I also got a cane fishing pole for 3 bucks. No, I am not a fisher person, but I liked it.

It was a wonderful excursion with my best buddies. I didn't realize how much I needed to get away. Thanks Barb, Nan and Martha!


It was/is supposed to warm up today. Really, they said so on the TV. Of course they said that about the weekend, too and that did not happen. My dogs are tired of the snow. It is even worse today. It rained this morning and the snow now has a sheet of ice atop it. I never knew a dog with such short legs could lose his bearings, but Cujo slid across the ice this morning. I don't know if I will be able to get him out the door again!

I have now mastered the art of editing and downloading photos on Windows 8! Actually I figured it out quite by accident!

I have Windows 8 too. It's taken me about a month to figure what I need to know out. That's all I'm going to stick to too ;o)

Isn't it amazing what a day out with our best gals will do for us! So glad you had the chance, beats that darn snow right.

These kinds of days with friends are the memory makers, and that frog will look great in your gardens. He has personality!
