Welcome to my page

This is a picture of the Naperville Riverwalk in the fall of 2008 on a early Sunday morning. I love to walk along the Dupage River early morning and even in the Winter. Just up around the bend is a bridge with rapids running underneath it - you can listen to the water - very nice.

So very nice of you to drop by with your personal best wishes for my mom's health. Your thoughtfulness means so much and went along way toward giving me the calm strength to get through a long and worrisome day.

Thank you for dropping into Epping (Sydney) Mary, and pleased you appreciated the food and drink set out for you to partake. I had fun setting it all up.(the food and drink on the sideboard) It is so enjoyable 'meeting' all the lovely people who live in 'Sudoku Land'.

there were several of iris johansen that i haven't read yet. my library branch doesn't have them and i just haven't requested them yet. there were 1 or 2 that just didn't grab my interest, but on the whole the rest were great. i just finished mercy by janet dailey. the beginning made me wonder if More...

Hi Mary, for visiting my page. We don't have wild rabbits any more (not here anyway)so there is nothing that eats my flowers but we have very hot, dry summers and in winter we get a few frosts, not snow though. That is why the roses are lovely around here.

Hi Mary, Thanks for dropping by and checking out my pics. We have traveled east a number of times on I80 and have visited Madison WI, and Kenosha WI so are familiar with your country. We are also familiar with the humidity and enjoy getting back to the Rockies. You must come out west sometime.

Thank you for welcoming me into the Sudoku fold, and I am so glad you enjoyed the Tastykake - I had no idea it was a regional delicacy. We must have joined around the same time (I have stalled on my page decorations) - so please accept some lilies from my garden as a welcome gift. Pray tell, what is the (umbrella) name of your book series? I was hoping to see some excerpts on your page!

Hi Mary, thank you for the visit! We have to go across the bridge to St. Louis MO for the custard, but well worth the 6 miles!!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit with Janice, Mary. I have to ask a really dumb question. An old college friend lives in Naperville. The chance that you would know him is 1 / Naperville + transients, but I gotta ask. His name is Mike Brown, he is into theater choriography and video production. You've either never heard of him or you live right next door.

I didn't figure you would know him but it doesn't hurt to ask. 'Oh, so you're from New York, do you know Fred Farkle?' Back in the high coutry of the Sangre De Cristo Range, I once came across a couple of fellow hikers. We got to visiting and found that one of them had been a college room mate of one of my good friends from high school. Small world indeed.

Hi Mary Thanks for the visit. I am leaving some crappie fillets for your enjoyment. I love them breaded and fried. My favorite breading is a mixture of Itailian bread crumbs and parmesian cheese.
We haven't had any cicada this year. I love their sound but they can be irratating at night. I'm sure your weather has been jumping around like ours. It will be 90 today.

Mary, I thought I would stop by your place and say Hi! Hope you're day gets better! Here are some flowers to brighten it! That happened with my daughter's cell phone, TWICE! It was ruined by the water both times! Take care! If you ever want to chat, stop by the SA2 page(under clips). Cheers!

Hello Mary thanks for visiting my page and I'm glad you liked the John Denver song. Enjoy your 4th of July celebrations. My grandaughter has ruined two cell phones by leaving them in her pocket and her mum putting them through the wash. Have a great day.

Mary, I hope you read my post to you on easy. I put a special youtube song up for you in honor of your blue moon celebration. I'll leave it there for a couple of day. I have no idea where the moon is now, we've been overcast for over a week and it's rained pretty steady for the last 3 days, but I'm sure it's out there somewhere.

The rainbow halo around the moon is a wondrous thing to see. I remember the first time I saw it, my dad called it a 'moon dog'. It is caused by ice crystals in the upper atmosphere. Wouldn't it be cool if there was one tonight?

Hi, I saw you live in Naperville; my son was born at Edward Hospital when I lived in Lisle. Did you eat Mexican food at Pepe's on Maple? And I wondered if the Thai food place was still in downtown Naperville right where Maple/Chicago meets Washington, near the Oberweis store and the college?

Hi, thanks for dropping by, just what I needed on a cold and windy night to cheer me up! The only problem with containers is that during the summer they dry out so quickly and in the winter they blow over. Have fun.

Hi Mary....I missed that in the Tribune. What did they say about Freeport? Yes, I have lived here all my life but worked in Rockford for over 40 years. Glad I am retired with the gas prices the way they are. Have a great fourth. Dave

Thanks for the ribs, Mary! They will go great with our baked beans and coleslaw at the cookout! Have a Happy 4th with beautiful fireworks!

Hi Mary. It's been a while since I visited, but thought I'd pop in and see how things are with you and yours. Saw your post today. Are you a teacher, and if so, are you teaching summer school? I can smell those ribs all the way up here. Have a greta Independence Day!

Good thing those eggs hatched, or you might have had roast duckling that night! I'm actually glad to see that you and yours are helping to preserve wildlife. Cheers.

Hi Mary! for visiting my page. It was so nice of you to drop by. Come visit again, anytime!

I was just in downtown Naperville today - to preorder my Harry Potter book! I love the atmosphere downtown. Too bad I was in a bit of a hurry!

Have a great day!

Hi Mary thanks for telling me the Thai place is still downtown. The white guy who ran the place (his wife is Thai) speaks Thai wit dat strong Chee-kaaaaaago accent, it cracked me up to hear him talk to his staff. Have some ribs for me at Ribfest! I recall going one 4th of July (1994 I think) and it More...

Mary, so true what you said about your sons. Mine are 6 1/2 and 10 1/2. The older one is starting to hit the teenage years when he doesn't want to be seen with mom or dad. He wants to stay home alone. He is into his video games and ipods. All the things I am not ready for yet. Luckily he has More...

Hi Mary! Thank you for being the first to visit my page. It's so hot here too - ugh. Can't wait for the thunderstorms to roll in and cool things down.

Gday Mary, sorry its been so long since I dropped in. Thought I'd come over and invite you to look at my pics. Thanks to Gath, its never been easier to put up photos.
If I'm not in when you arrive just come right in, grab a drink and sit yourself down and relax!
