Beantown


This is my mom

My two sisters

My cousin Wendy, 4th from the right, we went to Boston today for her mothers funeral

Paul Revere is buried here



This was on the way home in MA, I just thought it was fun


My Dad's first cousin's wife died which is why we went to Boston for a funeral. It's about a 2 hour ride from home so my sisters and my Mom all went today. It was sad but fun during the service. There were friends and family sharing memories and we laughed and cried. Do you ever wonder what people will say about you after you are gone, ie at your funeral service? I was kind of sad that I didn't get to know her as well as I should have. I spent a lot of time with the family when I was younger but not at all as an adult. My father always talked on the phone or they would visit with each other quite often as he did with a lot of our relatives. We don't do that any more... no time... no desire.... too much to do...... etc. We need to make the time before we won't be able to any more.

Barns & old buildings in Simsbury CT







Yesterday at lunch, it was 58 degrees so I took a short drive around to try and get some pictures of old barns and historical buildings in the town that I work in. The top picture of Welden Hardware sign is my favorite. I pass this Every day and I wonder who designed and put it up there. Do you think it's really that old??

Deer on my ride home from work




Today I am going to try and get some better pictures, there are usually about 20 deer in this field every night I go home for the last 2 weeks. They don't seem to be bothered by the traffic either.

Is this the most funny thing??

Snow driving



It was slow but the other day, I got stuck behind a snowplow, so since I was going about 25 I took my camera out for you folks in CA and FL that don't get to drive in this mess much!! (Biddie, Denise and Madeleine)

Valentines Day


We went to NY this weekend to snowmobile, this is Teri and myself standing on the lake

This is a big ditch we all drove over going about 30 MPH, not what you should do......

Because when I hit it, I crashed my head on the windshield and broke it.... ouch, a piece of plastic went up under my helmet and jabbed me in the cheek. I could have poked my eye out!!

My nephew saw what I did and slammed on the brakes, almost didn't make it!

But all is well, no one really got hurt.

The Boys


Why do you think I don't want to talk? You just attacked me while I was sleeping, jeez, leave me alone....

But wait.... come back, I just wanted to play with you

Jethro doesn't want to play with me Mom...
I'm bored, can I go out?

Harley


Maybe I can sneak up on that Finch

I'll sit here real still.

Try again......

He still doesn't see me......

Oh darn, Mom caught me

Awe come on, I wasn't going to eat him, really... Don't worry, he didn't get any, I was watchin!
