Brain Power

Another snow has fallen, this time with some moisture in it. That is certainly a good thing. I didn’t get enough accumulation where I live to make for difficult shoveling, but others did. There is another snow coming in the forecast, but this one is slated for the mountains. That’s needed. The reservoirs and the…

We had a wonderful evening. We started with a game my grandson had worked on all afternoon. He taught everyone how to…

A little travel

I guess I went off the grid for a bit. I thought I would write while gone, but we simply never had any down time during our last-minute get-away. We sure had fun though. The new camper is a dream, so easy to use and roomy compared to the last one. We did come home…
