We booked over a week in Kentucky and are having a ball! We couldn’t be this close and not go see the corvettes! Continue reading
After a few months of some stress due to Judy’s medical issues, we finally got a bit of good news. A celebration was in order, which in our life means food. Continue reading
We felt like Chicken Little on I-45 in when a big “Bam” hit our windshield just behind the rear view mirror. We felt the glass shatter in small pieces and saw the cracks in the windshield. We pulled off the expressway at the first opportunity to check out the damage. Continue reading
