Thirty-nine years ago today I asked my good friend to marry me.
I won’t keep you in suspense.
She said, “Yes!” (As I recall, the answer did come with a “!”.)
No doubt, our life together has not always been easy, but we thank the Lord and our family and friends that have loved and blessed us along the way. I am blessed to have her in my life.
Sam and family made it back home to Colorado without incident following the holidays. Evie and Max left chalk memories behind.
The rain will erase these someday and leave us with only these photos and memories.
Upcoming chores as weather permits will be yard cleanup,
keeping the bird feeders stocked,
and cleaning up the back yard from recent visitors.
I wanted to get out and ride a bit on the first morning of the new year. Jan was going to go for a long walk but decided to go with me in the end.
We stopped by the home of our friends, Obie and Marie. They are completely redoing the interior of their home and it is looking wonderful. Lunch with Sam and Linda rounded out the day. Back to work tomorrow; back to the commute.
Stay happy and a Happy New Year to all of you!
