Remembering Easter break with a couple #TBT photos from 1997

| April 18, 2019

It is Thursday before Easter  and besides thinking about a Throwback Thursday post, it is also Maundy Thursday – the day in which Christian’s commemorate the Last Supper. It also reminds me of the times we would get together with our families on or around Easter. Sometimes it was with my parents and other times […]

Music Monday: A recycled Beatles song and something from 1969

| February 11, 2019

There is probably a name for them, although I’m not sure what it is … but my nephew Aaron always seemed to me to be that guy who missed his era, particularly in music taste? Last week he commented that my “taxing wireless plans” blog post deserved Taxman by the Beatles to be included on Music […]

Our Princess Annalyn is ready for the next StarWars movie

| April 11, 2017

My daughter Katelyn and Annalyn visited cousin Justin, Katie and kids this past weekend and found a suitable hair ribbon … Princess Annalyn! Obviously the George Lucas StarWars franchise and "accessories" market is alive and well, 40 years after the original movie’s debut (1977). — Since my "socially connected" sister-in-law Lynda was visiting, I ended up with […]

Trip to visit Katelyn and Drew in Wayzata, MN — Part 2

| September 15, 2016

Continued from 9/14/2016 — This is PART 2: Sunday was fully planned as well. Katelyn and Drew had scoped out a car show in previous years and they knew it would be something I would enjoy. So before going to a ballgame, “we” (well at least “I”) enjoyed the old cars — and shared a […]

Archive: More photos from our July 2014 visit to Minneapolis

| July 19, 2014

  Katelyn forwarded a few of her photos from our visit to Minneapolis. We really did have a great time visiting and KNOW that they will “enjoy” at least the next three years while in Minnesota for Drew’s hematology fellowship; at this point I can see them staying far longer … but then again, it’s […]

Having a great time with Katelyn and Drew in Wayzata, MN

| July 18, 2014

  We’ve been having a wonderful time enjoying what Minneapolis, Minnesota has to offer “in the summertime” with Katelyn and Drew. Our couple of days has been filled with activities from picture hanging and yardwork to bike riding and fine dining (photos above from 6Smith in Wayzata). —   Another evening we we were off […]
