Totally Amazing!

I had told you in an earlier post that we had to have a “new” engine put in the Suburban earlier this week. Well, we got a call from the mechanic last evening to say that the Suburban was all ready for us to pick up! That was less than 48 hours after Richard had first taken it to him! Wow! When Richard asked him why it was so fast he said that when he had heard that it was our only vehicle he... read more

I realize that some of you are WAY colder and really longing for this winter to be over. SO glad we cut that wood last weeks – just keep stocking up the fire and keeping it roaring. On another note, most mornings when I head out to the... read more
