Watching NFL playoff football today. Colts vs Chiefs, snowing in KC, temp at field level is a steady 30 degrees, wind is blowing at a steady 5 mph.

This photo was taken on the last night of the second millennia ( I think I got that right). We had taken a cruise earlier that year (1999) and they gave us a bottle of champagne with the year 2000 on it.

The young doctor, fairly new to our area asked where I liked to go for… Continue reading MEMORY OF THE DAY: COFFEE!

Throwback Thursday/Memory of the Day: Tangipahoa Paddling. Playing around with old photos this morning and ran across this one. One of my retirement projects is to scan all our photos into the computer. I’ve probably scanned about 5000 photos and slides over the past 6 years.
