I wrote what is on the layout in case you can't see it there: We hadn’t been to the Waterloo for years. We found out after church that we were on our own for lunch. No one else could do it today. So we decided we would do something different. We headed toward home, as we turned off the expressway onto Waterloo Road, I noticed the Waterloo. We stopped... They had already decorated for Christmas. Ron really got a kick out of one of the trees. Here is his reaction. 11/12/23

Here is the layout I made with the photo from Thanksgiving day.

The layout says it all. Good to be limber at a time like this.

Hopefully I'll be able to make a nice layout with this picture later, but for now, we are thankful that our daughter April and her husband Tim traveled up here in her new car and took us out for a good Thanksgiving dinner. It's always great to be together.

Our class of '61 from Coventry High School has adopted the Rose Villa for our class lunches bi-monthly. Here we are on November 9 of this year. Actually the picture shows only me, but there were 7 of us classmates there.

I saw a layout similar to this on a scrapbooking site online a day or so ago. I liked it so well that I went to my window this afternoon and took this picture. I finally got it together and am quite happy with it.

Maggie loves people. The best thing that can happen for her is to have company. She does prefer adults. Little children make her nervous. And other animals intimidate her as well.

I think I've finished the layouts for September. Now on to finish October.

It makes me sad that we no longer travel. Because of that we have never seen our little great grandaughter Kendal in person. She is a real cutie!

Wednesday, November 8, 2023

I'm disappointed. I'm not getting Halloween pictures that I need to make layouts. However I"m very happy to have these.

As John's mother, I think it is wonderful that his family does so many good things together.

When one loves her pet, she will put up with things that others would not. This is an example. Chelle says, When I get on my phone, that's Izzy's cue to get up in my face and knock my phone away.

I'm still waiting for Halloween beggers pictures. Hey, maybe by December. While we wait, here's a layout of Greg carving their pumpkin. Poor Lucky looks like he is a bit scared.

Did you ever change your mind.? Of course you have and I just did it myself. I had published here a layout on October 22 that I have now abandoned. I put a new picture in that same layout. first time I've done that, but I'm glad I thought of it. I like this one better. I love the picture I removed and will use it in another way soon.

This is a page I made to go with the trip John's family took to Horsetooth Mountain in September while the Monarch butterflies were passing through the area.

Tuesday, October 31, 2023

I actually got a few Halloween pictures just now, but I don't have time to make a layout yet. Hopefully I can post at least one tomorrow. Today I have a picture of Ashley from a lesser known holiday in September...Daughter's Day which was celebrated September 25.

Monday, October 30, 2023

I copied exactly this layout I found somewhere online. I just changed the picture in the frame to one I took of the color on October 20 here. Just had to publish a fall layout since winter is suspected to hit here tonight. No, I'm not ready for it, but of course I have no choice but to bring out the winter coats, etc.

This is our great graddaughter Ava. Most places have already celebrated Halloween this weekend. I don't have many pictures of that yet, but we do have this one taken of Ava in her neighborhood on October 10.

This picture was taken two days ago, on the next to the last most beautiful day of the year. In my opinion, fall is the most beautiful season of the year. Of course that is here in Ohio it is. Glad I interrupted Ron's work to have him pose with me. Coming up is cooler temperatures and rain.

Friday, October 27, 2023

Well, I'm finally posting something more recent. This picture was taken 2 days ago. Ron is too busy to do any short trips to see all the beautiful leaves. All my girlfriends who would have done that in the past have either moved away or are traveling right now. So rather than drive around alone, I'm sticking close to home, very close here...right beside my house. Oh, and it is a selfie.

I had not yet posted these pictures of Caleb at the Rainforest Cafe in Niagara Falls. They were taken back in July. It is fun to look back at summer and see such handsome smiles.

Ryan ( pronounced Ry ann) is a sweet girl. She loves her little cousin Kendal.

I've read that there are waves of Monarch Butterflies that fly through that Horsetooth Mountain area in October each year. Millions of these butterflies fly up to three thousand miles from Canada to Mexico through this area. The trip takes them 2 months. They huddle together as they are cold. In the spring, they begin their return to Mexico the second week of March. There are no other butterflies that fly that far.

Friday, October 20, 2023

The Rainforest Cafe in Niagara Falls is quite nice. These pictures were taken out front on the sidewalk.

This is one place that is not too far from us here in OH, that I have not visited. I'm glad they did and took pictures. These were taken the evening they arrived after visitng Niagara Falls in New York.

Tuesday, October 17, 2023

Kendal is our great granddaughter and she is GREAT fun. So sorry we've not been able to see her in person yet. So glad for all the pictures.

Sunday, October 15, 2023

So glad the kids were able to do this. It is something they won't forget.

Bernie is a lucky dog...really lucky. Oliver gave him a good day.

Sunday, October 8, 2023

Caleb took Bernie for a walk. There was a good sign in the sky. What a great day for Bernie and his new family.
