April was a busy month with a variety of good and bad events, which pretty well sums up life in general, doesn’t it? We ended March and began April with a trip to Daytona Beach for our 18th wedding anniversary. But we got a hint of what April might bring when we had to rush […]
Today’s Throwback Thursday takes us back to April of 2007 when we took Mikey to Universal Studios. He met Spider-Man and Captain America and had a good time all over the park, but this is one of my favorite photos from that day.
Cindy took Ann and our two oldest grandchildren, Mikey and Heather, to Disney’s Animal Kingdom a few weeks ago. Here’s a video I just loved seeing; Mikey having fun and enjoying The Festival of the Lion King.
Back in January, Grandma and I took Abby to Leu Gardens for a short morning visit. I’m finally getting around to looking over the photos I took and I found these six of Abby that I really liked, so I thought I’d post them. Abby is always (ok, almost always) happy to “model” for Granddad […]
It was 4 years ago today that Bella came into our lives and our hearts. We adopted her as a rescue puppy from a litter of 8 that needed homes, and she has brought so much love and affection and companionship to us. We love having her as a member of our family.

Sears Roebuck opened its first retail store in Chicago, Illinois, after operating the Sears catalog for nearly 40 years. Benito Mussolini declared he was taking over Italy […]
My maternal grandfather was color blind. He could only see shades of gray. Life for him was like the black & white TV of my youth. It did no good to describe colors to him; how could it? You can’t picture something you’ve never seen. To say “The sky is a beautiful blue today.” to […]
As I mentioned a few days ago on Throwback Thursday, it was 18 years ago today that Cindy and I were married in the presence of a few friends and family members in the backyard garden of her parents’ home. It was Easter Sunday and though we don’t observe that religious holiday, our wedding […]
Four days from now, Monday, March 30th, will mark our 18th wedding anniversary. Today’s Throwback Thursday takes us back to 1997 to remember that special day that Cindy and I took our vows in her parents’ garden surrounded by our family and friends. The quality of the photos taken that day were not as high […]
