Memories

As full-timers we often get the questions:  “Do you have a home base.” and “Do you have stuff in a storage unit somewhere?”  Our answer to both is ‘No’.  However, I guess that isn’t technically true.  We do have some things stored at both of our son’s homes. At Zack’s we have a box or … Continue reading »

A Little Of this And A Little Of That…

Thursday was Dan and Amanda’s 4th wedding anniversary (although they’ve been together since they were in high school).  Dan took the day off and everyone kinda did their own thing.  Although we did get a game of cribbage in. Michael and I had some errands to run and stopped at Chili’s for lunch.  Afterward we … Continue reading »

A Day At The Zoo

Missin’ Home, Mop Top & Brewers Baseball

We’re really enjoying our time with the kids and grandkids but missing our home.  Dorothy sure had it right when she claimed, “There’s no place like home”.  We still have 3 weeks here on Long Island and then we’ll move to Clearfield, Utah (a suburb of Ogden) for 2 weeks.  Then it’s back to Arkansas … Continue reading »

Double Date, Mommy & Me Show And New York Bagels!

This past Saturday we went on a double date with Dan and Amanda.  They got a babysitter for the boys so it was an adult only date, which was very nice. We took in a movie (Chef) at the theater in Huntington first.  We had gift certificates for the movie, popcorn and soda so that … Continue reading »

Insulation, Vapor Barrier, Park & Pizza!

Work continues on the bedroom.  The order from Lowes (drywall, 2x4s, insulation, etc) was delivered about 4:00 pm on Tuesday.  The driver left it in the driveway and Michael moved everything but the drywall into the garage.  When Dan got home from work around 7:00 pm, he and Michael moved the drywall into the garage … Continue reading »

Dan and Amanda have been several times and Michael used to go to the horse races at Oaklawn in Hot Springs but I’d never been.  Dan and Amanda’s friends Zach … Continue reading »
