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.

It is time the drought ended Mary! I'm pulling for the Cubs, as I did last year! They're going all the way this year!

Dear mymare - many thanks for your lovely welcome to me. I see from above that your name is Mary, which is just so appropriate, with your obvious love of our equine friends. I wish I had some clever smilies to send back to you, but at the moment I'm not quite there yet. Cheers!

Hi, Mary!

I got your nice welcome note, but you mentioned something about being on the Board -- and I'm not on any jigsaw/sudoku board, so maybe you have me confused with someone else?

It looks like you are an animal lover, too! I have 2 Westies (Scotties before that). -Cyn

It is hard when we realize our babies are growing up...suppose it is the realization that we must be getting older!
How was the jazz?

Hi, Mary -- NOW I understand about "the Board"! Fun way to "waste" time, though it's likely good for a mental challenge! Spent part of the day at a Dog Agility Trial, which was great fun -- watching both the good dogs ... and the not-so-good dogs as the jump, weave, charge up the A-frame, through the tunnels, etc. Lovely day with sun today, unlike the last 2 days! -Cyn

Add my prayers for your Mom's successful surgery.
Since you are a praying person, too, could you add a prayer for a friend who has been my watercolor painting partner for almost 15 years? She had a heart attack last night. She's only in her fifties. (She's a police dispatcher and also a nurse.)

Mary, you and your mother will be in my thoughts over the next couple of days. It's never a dull moment with our parents, is it? My mother has been having a rough time of it lately with her heart as well. Every day with them in our lives is a good day.
I will be looking out for an update on the surgery.

So very good to hear your Mom is making progress towards recovery. Prayers for her continued improvement.
Thanks also for your prayers for my friend. She had a stint put in because due to 90% blockage in one artery and 60% in another. She actually came to our watercolor class this More...

Hi Mary, just saw your comment on one of the newbies pages and those chocolate chip pancakes sound good any chance in sharing the recipe with me, nice to spend time with the kids, our kids live 250kms away and we miss them dearly we now have two granddaughters as well so that makes it even harder. Oh well enough of my carry on, take care, & cheers

My son and I passed thru Naperville on Saturday.

We were en route to Midway Airport for our flight back to Florida after spending the Thanksgiving Holiday on the farm. I spent it mostly helping my 83-year-old father-in-law get in his corn harvest.

We drove in I-88 and got off at More...

Hello Mary, thank you so much for your birthday greetings, I feel very lucky to have received messages from so many parts of the world.
In 1974/75 I lived in Rochester Minnesota and well know the weather in your part of the world. Coming from Australia though, I just loved winter there!

Just read your post about the cat fiction for kids. Have you read the Redwall series by Brian Jacques? My kids (and grown kids) love to read them as they come out -- and I've been known to enjoy an afternoon with one now and again, too!

Hi Mary! I'm slowly catching up on Sudoku after our long trip through Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, & Cambodia. Thank you for your birthday greeting on Dec. 4.
