I'm retired at 63 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (45 years!)
to the man of my dreams (most days),
my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have ...

So glad you had a great trip Elizabeth! Thanks for stopping by the blogs. To get an idea about Javelina google them. They look like a small pig but are actually a rodent! Our backyard is fenced so I've never seen them there but they travel through Arroyas, culverts and such and even though the neighborhood entry is gated it wouldn't stop them. They usually are out and about at dawn and dusk but I have seen them mid day on the golf course before also. On one of my runs in the morning last year I actually had to cross the street as they were "coming through". xoxo

Thank you for reading my butterfly blog. I really do think of them as my children and I love to see them grow and fly away. Congratulations to your son. I am always happy to hear about other butterfly enthusiasts.

I like the, "maybe if we leave winter behind, so too shall we leave the crud behind" theory. Then again, I live in a place where it was 65 degrees today (plus thunderstorms) and it might snow on the weekend, so...

Here's to health, regardless!
