What A Difference A Day Makes

What A Difference A Day Makes

A Storm Is Coming

A Storm Is Coming

Susanne and I are about to experience our first Hurricane.  We have followed the advice of friends and neighbors. We have our hurricane preparedness box: flashlights, batteries, water, hand-crank radio, power packs for our electronics, non-perishable food, and other...

We have finally arrived at our intended destination.  The place we will be calling home: Florida.  We will be spending the summers and holidays back in the midwest.  While visiting with some friends last week, I saw this statement: “The best things in...
