Movers — Not my new best friends

We were fortunate we didn't have to sell our old house before we purchased our new house. We could move first, then stage the old house before we put it on the market...at least that was the plan. That meant we were leaving some of our furniture in the old house for staging. We planned to stage the basement as a mother-in-law or nanny's suite and the main floor. The upper floor, with two bedrooms and bonus room would be left empty. We'd planned to move in one day. Well, that didn't work out. One mover was hurt. We'd packed and labeled boxes and told them which furniture was to come. When they first arrived we went through the house with them so they could plan their load accordingly, but…

Why move?

About a year ago, Hubby bought a little red sports car about the size of a lawn mower. It was to replace the sedan he'd been driving, or so he said. He told me to sell the sedan, but I dragged my feet. I could see him going on a business trip where he needed to drive, taking my SUV and leaving me with the lawn mower. No thank you. After a few weeks, even he admitted, little red car (LRC) was best on back roads because it was pretty intimidating on interstates when you could see underneath big trucks. He learned new routes to work and enjoyed it until it got really, really hot. Then he went back to the sedan. Fall was perfect for LRC, but we had…

Here are The Tappin' Dolls at our recent recital. We have one 40 year old (bless her heart). The rest of us are in our 50's, 60's, and 70's. There are 16 of us, though I don't think all of us are in any of these casual shots. We were in the same program as the little kids so the audience got to see dancers from 3 to 73.       Hope you enjoyed! ~ Kay *In memory of Dorothy Rainer Sellars, my dance teacher in the 1960's, who passed away in June 2013.

Wow! Lot's has happened since I last blogged. About a year ago, I stopped my routine of blogging three times a week so I could finish my second novel, which I did. Unfortunately, while the book was "aging" (before I started the editing and rewriting phase) I didn't get into the habit of consistently posting. Oh, I wrote MANY posts--in my head...they just didn't make it to my website. I had great plans to post fabulous pictures from our three week trip to Italy in October and share some of the adventures we had there. Unfortunately, a couple of days before we were scheduled to come home, we learned my dad was much sicker than we'd thought. By the time we returned, he was in Hospice. Hubby had to go to Germany…
