A Cat Nap

Happiness is

A freshly baked by sunshine toasty kitty

It was a beautiful sunny weekend and 
I spent most of it outside.

Not much going on in my world

Work work work

My camera has been idle so I pulled something pretty 
from the archives so I could come here and say "Hi"

This is a McDonalds museum in DesPlaines IL
It is one of the first McDonalds built in the area.

They restored it to be as originally built.
Sometimes they put old classic cars out front.
It's kinda cool.

I didn't take these pictures
but I thought I would post them to give you and idea
 of what it is like right now in this area without taking a photo of some poor souls damaged house. 

Those who are high and dry are doing their best to help those under water.

The only sign of spring here is some 
severe flooding.
So sorry for the folks under water, didn't have the 
heart to take a picture of their misfortune.

It actually snowed last night and it is still quite cold.
Fortunately, Im not on a river 
and high enough up the hill from the lake.
Life goes on!
Me and "Pie" are cuddled up warm and cozy.

There is no better way to calm the soul

Than Pure Unconditional Love!

sorry for my outburst... 

An Answer?


You all know I like to keep it upbeat.
I couldn't post a picture yesterday
I just couldn't find the mood, thinking about the
families just like us who have been devastated in Boston.

Is it wrong to be happy a bad guy was killed?
I'd like to see those monsters heads on sticks,
and the heads of those who indoctrinated them!
Does that make me just as bad as they are?
I am struggling with this!

Sorry, I just have to vent.

If walls could talk!

My imagination goes crazy

When I see stuff like this.

Taken in Northern Ireland
In a town called Bushmill

Note Card Party ~ LIGHT

(There is always light at the end of the darkness)

I plan and manage a yearly educational event 
for the company I work for.

Choosing a location can be the hardest part.
Since most of the attendees are from 
the Northeast and Midwest 
a sunny destination is the most desired.

Of course I have to scope it out and that's where I was last week.
Working in Palm Beach and Jupiter Florida!

Okay... This is called lost

As in.. don't you think we should have turned back there?
At what point did we not notice this was no longer paved?
Or maybe... do you think we should just turn around?
Are we really almost above the clouds?
Big Question
How much gas do we have?
Uh Oh!

My sister and I drove the entire coast of Ireland a few years ago this is one of our few of our inland trecks. 
Obviously not intentional.

The March Toward Spring

This was taken in the Month of April

Across the Pond

It was so much fun to watch all the little lambs.
They were on every road in every town.
The population of sheep in Ireland is far greater 
than the population of people.

Sunset a few weeks ago on my back road. 

I'll try to get caught up with everyone. 
It's been a bit nuts around here.
