Popping Our Bubble


We were very excited today because we'd made plans to meet son Jeremy, daughter-in-law Jennifer, and grandkids Allie and Luke at our favorite pizza place in Kilgore, TX.  We arrived early and were very disappointed to find that the place is closed  on Mondays.  

Our second choice was Olive Garden.  I was so excited about collecting lots of good hugs that I forgot to take pictures!

Stuffed on soup, salad, and bread sticks,

Look Again

What you see is not always

what you get.

Always looking,

At Home


As Duane rode the Eagle to pickleball I opted to enjoy the unusually cool and relatively dry morning with a quick walk around our camp loop. 

 In my six times around the loop I discovered two interesting outfits:
this tiny little "tin tent" 

and this little outfit.  This is actually a kayak on a boat trailer.  The Packasport, a car rooftop cargo holder, is attached to the boat frame.  

I also found that most people were experienced campers who know that after the people party is over, 

the raccoon party begins.  Apparently these campers didn't get the memo.

Yes, that's the other trash bag is on top of the canopy.

Live and learn

Where Oh Where

People never cease to amaze.  For 2 months we have searched Tyler area grocery shelves for a simple shower cleaner.  (The one we use doesn't disinfect.  It cleans soap scum and mineral residue but doesn't need to be wiped off.)  In every store we've been met with empty shelves.


We are amazed that it took a respiratory virus to  suddenly inspire everyone to start cleaning their showers!

Poison Ivy?

Poison ivy?
no, grape vine

no, Virginia creeper

 no, various bushes and vines

no, more vines

now that's poison ivy--a lot of it!

It pays to know your ivy.
