I promised to give you an update on the family. The best way to do that is to do it one by one. But let’s first start with the large group. The family birthday party in November was the largest one we had. This year we had Earl’s sons and daughters-in-law’s join us. My daughter … More The Family

Spring started off in the normal way, with a list of projects. While the weather in early Spring was still balancing off between wet and cool, Husband put in new floors in the Warrior’s Cottage. He worked steadily for several weekends to get it accomplished before they arrived. His work efforts paid off as he … More Spring 2022
