I grew up on a Minnesota farm in the 1950's. I am frugal, organized and goal orientated. My most well known skill is focused on Communication. The most important things in my life are my immediate and church family. I have a very strong work ethic. Both my boys have graduated from college now and it is time to focus more on me. Our oldest boy, Matt, married Jaimie in 2006 and received his Masters degree in 2008. Zoey, our first grand baby was 10 years old in September of 2019! Isabella, our second grand baby was 8 years old in October of 2019. Olivia, our third grand baby was 6 years old in September 2019. William Benjamin was born in January 2017 and is now almost 3 years old!!! Our youngest boy, Ben, went to heaven Christmas of 2006. He would have loved being an Uncle! We are so pleased that Will has the middle name of Benjamin. So touched that our son and daughter in law did that ...

    Hi Sally, We've had a beautiful Autumn here in western NY, too. The colors of the foliage have been more brilliant than many years due in part to all the rain we had during the summer months. The trees are mostly bare now. Thankfully, hubby and I both love raking. I see you've had snow already...none here yet but it won't be long. I hope your weekend is going well! Enjoy your Sunday. emoticon emoticon

    Sally, I hope you're getting a break from the heat and the rain there. Much nicer here today, in the 70s but hot again starting tomorrow.

    Thanks for your message. I remember you talking before about Riley being Ben's dog, so I was sad when I read of his passing. I know you miss him a lot. I'm glad you have the grandkids coming for a visit soon, tho. Hope you all have a great time!

    We are being hit with the hot and humid temperatures today. I prefer a little cooler weather, but on our area we will have that again. We have been overburdened with rain this spring. I'm glad to see that mostly out of the area.

    Have a nice day. emoticon

    You might not remember me.
    It's been a long time since our paths have crossed.
    In the meanwhile I've lost a son, BFF, and my last fur-baby, all within 9mo and 2days.
    How do I join you on the two greiving and lose sites? I'd love to share.
