Happy Valentine's Day!

What a great thing, an entire day devoted to LOVE.

I stopped and saw my Dad today and gave him a card I made for him.  I gave him the chocolates last week so he offered me a couple of them.  It was nice just to sit with him enjoying our treat.

I got to see his crown.  Apparently every year the day before Valentine's Day, they crown a King and a Queen of Brightondale.  Residents get to vote, but that doesn't always determine the winner; they try to distribute the honor to people who would enjoy the honor.

They crowned my Dad King Walt.  He has the hat, which is quite impressive.  It's a cowboy hat with a red crown added to the brim.  Wish I'd had my camera, but I can bring that next time I visit.

He gets to ride in the City of New Brighton's parade this summer, in a convertible, with the Queen.

I think he'll have a great time!

Hope you do something special with your royal consort!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Yes, I've been a little bit busy...  :)


Happy Friday!

Who doesn't love Fridays!?

You've gone through a tough week at work and are looking forward to a couple of days to rest, unwind and maybe even do something fun!

Well, if you're like the rest of the world, the weekend is never long enough to get the house cleaning, laundry and other chores done, much less have time for yourself to kick your feet up and relax.

Just remember that this is the only life you have. 

Make the most of it.  Don't be afraid to try something new.  Spend quality time with the people you love and who love you.  Share a smile with a stranger.

Life is fragile.  No one knows how much time they have left on this earth.

Make every moment count.

...Just sayin'...
