Veteran’s Administration

My husband said he never wanted to have anything to do with the Veterans Administration. He watched his father die at the VA hospital. When he came home from Vietnam, he walked into the hospital, saw other veterans with missing limbs and just knew that he was better off than most and was convinced they … Continue reading Veteran’s Administration

Little Healing Spirits

  I grew up on a small farm and regularly visit my farming community roots although I now live in a big city. “They,” say that animals don’t remember and do not feel pain to the extent we do, but I don’t believe that. I have looked into the big black curious eyes of an … Continue reading Little Healing Spirits

Recycling can be hazardous to your health

  Last evening, as I was flattening cardboard in my garage in preparation for curbside recycling, I stepped on a piece, that was on a shiny piece, and in a split second, I was flat on my back.

You never know who might be spraying what, or watering brown … Continue reading Idyllic Living

Day Trippin’

I don’t care what you ride, you are out there getting your senses involved like no other experience, and kudo’s to you! When I first met my sweetheart, I wondered why he rode motorcycles so much. After quickly recognizing his … Continue reading Day Trippin’

Sometimes you need a little help

I have an electric bicycle. Don’t judge me. Oh well, you can if you want. I found I wasn’t riding near enough for my mental and physical health with my standard bike. We live in a very hilly and populated area. In fact, it is so hilly, that I would not get off my hill … Continue reading Sometimes you need a little help
