  Now I know starting out saying I'm grateful for 2020 sounds kind of weird.  And in a way I agree. The way I see it is we were all pretty much forced into handling/doing things much differently than ever before.And with that we could either decide to make the best of things or not. Always a choi...
 Today isn't any Thursday.  Oh no, today is Yuma Day! And just what does that mean?  It means we've got a friend of Barney's named Yuma, staying with us for a few days while his parents are moving into their new home. It's been quite the busy few days attempting to keep them both settled down whi...
Captain & Mrs. Kenneth R. Kruchten  My Dad had a tough beginning as his parents lost their farm in the 30's during the depression when he was just 10 or 11. He had to live with his parents friends in St. Cloud MN so he could attend high school.  During high school he worked at a local hardware st...

Not knowing what it was about I quickly forgot about it for a year or so.  In 2008 I hired an Internet marketing coach that told me I needed to start blogging.  And that's what started my ActiveRain journey in ea...
    About a week and a half ago a friend of mine brought me some flowers.  At that time they hadn't opened up yet.  I was hoping they'd last through the week as often times flowers don't last all that long. For some reason these flowers came to life and have been blooming like this for 5 days or ...
 Today has been such a wonderful day. No rush to go anywhere or do anything. One of those quiet, sleepy days which seems very rare lately. Around noon it turned cloudy and we actually got a few sprinkles (which has been almost non-existent this year) rain that is!  The big wind chimes on the pati...

  Can you believe it's only 20 days until Thanksgiving? 2020 has been a year unlike any other year I can remember. In previous years I would have already sent out invites for Thanksgiving Dinner, had the menu set and decorated a bit as well.  This year?  Nothing yet other than a few pumpkins here...
