OFF WE GO—-Sunday, February 11, 2018

Waking at two thirty in the morning we gathered our two bags and headed out to Kimberly’s waiting car.  She graciously said she would take us to the airport, an hour away from us, and pick us up when we returned.

I was a nervous wreck.  I haven’t flown in many, many years.  Terry has, but not me.  I wasn’t afraid of flying, but all the requirements for the luggage.  Therefore, I checked the luggage requirement I’ll bet fifty times.  Packed the liquids in the proper way, allowed ourselves only TWO carry-ons, since we didn’t want to check luggage once we got there.

Airports are famous  for that ‘Hurry Up and Wait’ statement

Finally it was time!  Off we went, high above the clouds.

Clouds, of which were all the way the from here to Florida.

Still it was beautiful….we flew INTO the sunrise

No land to see, but beautiful sun coming up over the horizon

After a change over in Fort Worth-Dallas International Airport, with a two hour wait we were at the Fort Myers International Airport!

Terry’s sister and brother-in-law met us in the lobby…huge smiles on their faces and open arms.

Their condo is like many others in Marco Island; sitting against a canal in the back, with roads in the front.

We had arrived to SUMMER!


That evening we ate supper alongside the beach, just a few blocks from their home.

 Gosh, it’s a lovely place.

Sun, sand, SUMMER, good people to spend time with, the water lapping on the shore, SUMMER—-did mention it was just like my favorite time of year?—SUMMER!

Who could ask for more.

From my world to your heart,



Sunday, March 24, 2013….March Leaves Like a Lion

We were up at 2:30 on Saturday morning to take Evan to the airport to go see Joylene in Canada.


Everything went really good for him until he got to Denver …then he was grounded until 8 that evening…

Snow storm…big one…that is already on it’s way to the rest of the country.


Terry’s sister and her husband live in Greeley and sent us over a photo of just what the snow looked like there…18″.

It didn’t snow here, but we did have the wind…frigid, face freezing wind and lots of it– 40 m.p.h. gusts with 25 m.p.h. sustained winds.

Today we are frozen…more like January and February instead of late March.  I guess March is leaving like a lion…not long now until April.


I’m looking forward to April.  This is a little robin, poor things they really look cold this morning.

Our wood is down to four logs so this afternoon we are heading to the upper end to cut wood from the downed trees, this time last year we were not worrying about heat except in the early morning.

Each year is decidedly different one never really knows what will happen.

I saw a headline on the internet saying this the winter that doesn’t leave.
