Hello Friends

Well, I am still here. I just have been so busy lately, with no motivation for blogging. Since my camera is on the blink it just doesn't seem as interesting. :-)
I am sitting here enjoying air conditioning. It is something I normally take for granted, but my HVAC unit went out earlier this summer. I have been enduring the summer without it, but finally was able to get the money to have a new one installed. My van has developed a leak in the oil pan, which will be fixed tomorrow. (I hope.) I got a new washing machine put in yesterday to replace the other new one which leaked water everywhere. As I mentioned, my camera is on the blink. My vacuum cleaner stopped working - but it was an easy fix - they pulled a Lego out of it! I have also had lots of financial and legal untangling to work on. I have also had people in to give me quotes on repairing all the water/moisture damage from downstairs. In short, I have just been too busy and distracted to blog.
Thanks for hanging in there and continuing to watch for my posts through my "bad spell." Next week I start back to work :-( But I am grateful for my job, which I really do enjoy. It is just that I enjoy staying home and doing what I want when I want more. TTYL,

In the Crown

Here is a photo of, from left to right, me, my niece Joy, and bff Anna. It was about 1988, and we were in New York City. We decided to make the climb to the crown, and had a nice man behind us take our picture. I love this picture. It was such a fun trip!They reopened the crown July 4th of this year. It had been closed since the terrorists did their cowardly deeds on 9 - 11. I have heard that it will only be open for a short period of time, so if you are in the NYC area anytime soon, schedule a trip to the crown. I don't think you can just show up and get in line anymore.
