A Late Ten Year Blogaversary...



Morning!  Again, I'm overdue for a posting.  I really don't set out on a daily basis, intending to not post, it just ends up that way.  I also can't believe I've had this blog for ten years!!  Where has the time flown off to?   My first post is Here ...but I must admit it's been fun.  I've gotten to know a lot of people from all around the world.  Some of us have remained in contact to this very day and some have gone off into other directions.  We've had heartache, laughter, shocks and many passings.  The latest is Brenda's (What's Up Down South) grandson Zach, whom she and her late husband, James, had raised.  He went swimming last Saturday and swam out too far, trying to rescue a child's inner-tube but was exhausted when trying to make it back to shore.  A man tried to find him but to no avail.  He was later found...deceased.  SO heartbreaking... but when you love so many people and befriend them, even in this virtual world, then you share in all ways.  I wouldn't have it any other way...
  I took the above photo about five years ago of myself.  I NEVER do selfies, but another blogger buddie tagged me...and literally, insisted I play along so, I did.  And the bluebonnet shot is several years old.  Since our daughter and family moved away, Larry and I have found the "empty nest" syndrome...sucks big time!  Yes, Our oldest granddaughter still lives locally but it's just not the same.  Those of you that "hear" me, know what I'm talking about.  We are still working on getting out of our funk but if wishes were horses...and all that.  We have a trip planned to get back out to New Mexico to see friends who live in Angel Fire.  Gorgeous country.  
Well, I hope this blabby little post sort of catches you all up on my world.  Larry and I are doing ok physically...the furrbabies are fine...I'm still working but may be taking my retirement soon.  I'll be turning sixty six this Wednesday so I'm thinking it's probably about time.  We want to travel and a job seems to be a hindrance to that.
Larry retired last Sept...wow...almost a year!  I best decide soon!
Enjoy your day people...
