My Sweet Smokey and I ...

This was taken on the last day 
Smokey and I had together 
on April 6th, 2013 ... 
(I so remember the tears I was shedding 
as I held her close to me 
knowing that within a few hours
I would be saying my last good-bye to her.) 
I miss her so very much 
and will always be grateful 
for the 18 years we had with each other
Always loved and always missed 
my sweet and precious, Smokey ...

(I am taking a blogging break 

for a month or a little longer 
Take care dear blogger friends!)

Water Solitude ...

This photo was taken a few years ago 
at Giant Springs State Park and fish hatchery.
This is in Great Falls, Montana.
We lived in Great Falls from 1979 to 1982 
when my husband was stationed at Malmstrom Air Force Base. 
We visited this park often
when we lived in Great Falls.
It is one of nature's wonders!
It was good to be back in Great Falls again!

My Grandmother ...

I never knew my grandmother as she died 
before I was born ... 
 from all the stories I have heard about her 
she was truly a remarkable woman 
so loving and so very kind 
and never had a bad word to say about anyone
and she was gifted with much beauty ...
Her name was Annie ...

My Hero ...

I am proud to be his wife!!! 
He rode over 100 miles last weekend 
in Moab, Utah, at the Skinny Tire Festival 
He has been doing this for 14 years!
All the money raised goes to cancer research. 

My hero, indeed!

My Friend Gabriel and I ...

We met Gabriel in Cancun in 2004
at the all-inclusive resort we go to.
We have been back over the years 
and so thrilled he's still working there!
We always asked to be seated in his area
and he was always such a kindly server.
It was so good to see Gabriel again!

Beer Time in Cancun ...

I am not much of a beer drinker 
but I managed to drink 
the whole 28oz.
(over a 2 hour dinner span) 
When my daughter saw this photo
she said the beer was bigger than I am
(Almost ...LOL )
