I Quit!

I quit! Oooo, I got your attention.  No, I am not quitting the posting to this blog.  What I quit is ‘today’.  The decision has finally been made to get me out of this two story home.  Anyone want to buy one?   Can you believe that my daughter suggested very strongly that her dad get … Continue reading
