MUSIC IS IN THE AIR

  SCCROLL DOWN for all the memes/challenges this week   A young friend sitting on my living room floor. Jamming in her jammies (Pyamas)  – that’s what you do when you are a 3rd generation musician  – Bass guitar, regular guitar, drums (I didn’t ask further). Her grand father, and her father were band leaders….

THE LAST WONDERFUL MONTH

SCROLL down for TWO DOORS This last “wonderful” month of Dean Martin’s (?)  song is tongue in cheek because for the ones in the helping professions, it can be the most busy or overwhelming month.

SOME UNEXPECTED, SOME NOT

After our gelato trip of her older sister’s birthday, Macenzie saw me taking shots while exploring and doing the touristy thing. She grabbed me by the arm, indicating she…

SCRAPS OF GOODNESS

Scraping the scraps out of the pan because you don’t want it to stop:) The “scraps” here are spending time with our son. We have a different relationship with him than with our daughters. We have our traveling gene in common. So wherever he is on the globe for longer than a year, we’ll visit….

AMADOR 2017

  Last year I did a post on Amador County, where hubby and I live on an unpaved road, after having lived for  3 decades in Los Angeles’ suburbs.
