Fork Union is where?

Listening again this week to the wind and rain while my household sleeps I try to reconcile the last several weeks. I dialed 911 on election nite and sitting in my recliner this morning I realized I lost the whole month of November. I’m thankful for thoughts and prayers from family and friends. I’m thankful…

Marge I Hear You Talking To Me ……

Fathers Day

MY FATHER AND I SHARE THE LOVE OF MANY THINGS BUT NOTHING COMPARES WITH A WALK ON THE BEACH … (no matter how cold the wind gust are !)

A look back years later Dustin is still often on my mind. Eleven years ago on a hot and humid Tuesday we said our goodbyes. Dustin’s passing in the prime of his life was hard on many. With a kind and loving soul he did not sign up for his place in life . With…

Gemini #2 📙
