International Box Day

Hey Evfurryone,

Pellie just told me - that here in the Blogosphere - It International Box Day.


How fun is that?

And I was clueless - so I just had to jump on the computer and post some of my favorite box pictures, before the day was over.

A few boxes I have loved and lost.

Summer Has Arrived

Hello everyone,

Summer officially arrived today since today marks the Summer Solstice.

“A major celestial event, the Summer Solstice results in the longest day and the shortest night of the year. The Northern Hemisphere celebrates in June, but the people on the Southern half of the earth have their longest summer day in December.

Awed by the great power of the sun, civilizations have for centuries celebrated the first day of summer otherwise known as the Summer Solstice, Midsummer, St Johns Day or the Wiccan Litha."

I’m hoping that this Summer is much more pleasant than this Spring has been; for with all the ups and downs in temperature and the wild barometric pressures- my Fibromyalgia has really been acting up.

Today is also Baby Boomer Appreciation Day and since I am a Boomer I am definitely going to tip my Long Island Ice Tea in Celebration. Well it's still too early for that much celebrating so I guess it will just be a nice cold glass of my sun tea without the added spirits.

Both Genghis and I hope to get back to our routine of blogging soon - but this June has pretty much been the month from hell around here.

Talk to you soon.

Happy Father's Day

Hello Everyone,

Here it is Father's day - the day set aside to honor all fathers - The Good, The Bad, The Ugly - the tall, the small and all those in between.

My own Dad has been departed from this earth for 21 years now - having passed away a few days before his 75th birthday and although time has moved on and we all have adjusted to our loss - it is days like this that remind us of our losses.

Here is a picture of my happy Little Family taken in 1950 -
I'm the cute little butterball in my mom's arm
(in case your wondering).

Here is a rare picture of Dad and I taken in 1960.

Dad was the one who was usually behind the camera -taking all the picture; so it is very rare to find a picture with him in it.

Happy Father's Day to all the father's out there in blog land.
