Well That's Water Under The Bridge!

I've always had a love for bridges especially covered ones... Maybe I got it from my Dad who loved bridges or maybe because it was my favorite place to play under at my Grandma's house. Who knows. But perhaps it's because I won my first and only art contest at 9 years old with this charcoal drawing. In retrospect, I'm surprised it won because the perspective is all wrong on the wall. Today Travel Trivia had this article on 16 of the Most Beautiful Bridges in the World and I thought you might enjoy seeing them.

I thought it was beautiful and I would asks her why she thought she couldn't sing? She said yodeling was not singing it was for calling the cows home. What?

Yet a very strange thing happened. Before we went out to dinner, we exchanged cards.  Hubby opened his card first and an expression I have never seen before came onto his face. I wish I had taken a picture. Then all he said was, "Your turn." I couldn't believe my eyes! (Click Pic) I took the time to make this video because I know many of you would...

This Day Needs a "Do Over"!

Today started out great and then I got this email from a friend's 25 year old grand daughter. First off in the title of the Email I saw the words Baby Boomer. For a half second I thought why is she sending this to me? I had a brief brain cramp thinking my parents were BB instead of The Greatest Generation.
