My darling Husband has 3 purple dust bunnies ready to attack the Utility Room.
Al (our neighbor) came over and helped move our washer
and dryer out of the Utility Room so Sweetheart here
could paint our Utility Room. Posted by Picasa

101 degree weather....
Yikes. Posted by Picasa

This is our Financial Advisor, Mark!
His smiling face is because he just told us that
we could go to Molly's family reunion in
Missouri and he'll pay for the diesel...
WOW... Are we excited... Posted by Picasa

We can't go to a town that has a Trader Joe's without stopping.....
We did just that. Had to 'stock up' on some
"Two buck Chuck" for our travels...

WOW I love that store. Posted by Picasa

This is Christopher.....Verizon Wireless Customer Service..... he sold me a new Verizon phone...with all the trimmings.. Since Mark told us we could go to my reunion in Missouri and travel again for the winter our needs were CELL PHONE.... again.

Our new Italian Restaurant 5 miles just outside town...
We really wondered just what kind of food they
would serve because on their
sign it stated "Italian Restaurant" but..
also on their sign was a "Bucking Bronco" ......

Now anyone knows that these two don't go
together but after eating there we were very
pleasantly was great.
