Don’t know about you…but standing on the rungs of a helicopter while it’s flying is just a tad much for me!  Same goes for bungee jumping – NO WAY! Some of the ‘wild’ things I’ve done, however, include white water rafting on a Class 3 river in Maine; diving off the coast of Maine, and […]

Hubby and I spent three days this past weekend driving from the northeast coast of Florida to central New Hampshire – about 1200 miles!  We decided this year to take our time and not rush it; we’d stop along the way at Harley dealerships we’d not visited before to collect their poker chips (both my […]

I have to admit – writing is not my favorite thing to do.  During my ‘corporate’ days as an administrative secretary, many moons ago, I could write a professional letter with no problem.  To sit now trying to share my thoughts and experiences regarding Africa and make it entertaining; for me, is like having a […]

Whether you’re a Mom…of the human or pet kind, tomorrow is your day.  Do you have special memories of past Mother’s Days?  Hand made cards, wild flowers picked from outdoors, candies that you really didn’t need, a special breakfast in bed; the best is when you were allowed to sleep in late – you know […]

I’ll tell you where….our ‘holidays’ started early with a visit from our son & his girlfriend December 15th.  She needed to return home (NH) on the 22nd and he  stayed until the 28th.  New Year’s came and […]

There are so many traditions for the Holidays, so thought I’d share what we do, and ask my readers to share “what’s your holiday tradition”? We’re very excited that our son Ryan, and this year his girlfriend of 4 years, Nicole, will be joining us in just a few weeks.  Since we moved away from NH […]

Many of you know that I’m a die-hard animal lover, and especially for the wildlife in Africa.  I was flipping through my quarterly ‘African Wildlife News’ and came across an article on Rothschild’s giraffe and  ‘April’ came to mind –   remember?  The gestation period and subsequent delivery of her male calf resulted in millions of […]

There is an interesting ‘challenge’ on Facebook this week in which those who participated were asked to post a Black & White picture to their page each day for 7 days, with no people in the picture and no explanation.  I’ve done 6 of the 7 days so far, and it was fun converting mine […]

Was doing laundry yesterday and it occurred to me that some people may think I have OCD! Why?  I always hang t-shirts to dry vs. using the dryer.  AND, I don’t mean hang them up just any ole way….you see, my hubby is a Harley t-shirt guy and he has 3 different sleeves:  short-sleeve, no-sleeve […]
