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.

Now that you are here, how is all with you and yours? I do expect you to master those photos in the near future. Cheers!

I love both your quotations, but that of Chief Dan George is super special. I hope you enjoy the photos of my beloved dogs. As you can see, they are my weak spot--and they know it, too!!! (Very spoiled, but it is fun to spoil them.) Thanks for the lovely welcome!

Hi Mary, thank you for dropping by. I couldn't help myself when you told the tale of your camera lesson, I have done exactly the same myself. I bought a new camera, loaded the film and set off to take some earth-shattering photos. What I didn't know was that the film went around the take-up More...

Hi Mary, it was a rather hot day at Moraine lake, so if it was you in the photo you must have had a lovely time, probably cooler than we were on the edge. I will eventually put more photos of our holiday on my page, my daughter was the photographer.
I am looking forward to getting Callie home, we pick her up in 8 days time.

Hi Mary, thank you for visiting my page. You caught me in the midst of construction; yes, I know I should have started long, long ago, but at least I have started, right? Loved your quotes, but I keep reading comments about photos that I can't see. Are you going to post more photos? I lived in More...

Hi Mary, thanks for stopping by! Hope the wine was to your taste! The scoop on Chicago's weather is helpful to this boater.
I haven't been to Chicago since 1998 when my son graduated from basic training at Great Lakes. Has the traffic improved?

Hi from me, too, Mary. You've been doing a lot of visiting! I do like the idea of Ai Chi. Will need something like that myself when my knee is fixed.

Hi Mary
Thanks for visiting. Yes, I did enjoy reading Harry Potter. It took me about 24 hours. (not constant!) The next town over had quite the to do. There was a train ride (Hogwarts Erpress)and the merchants on the main street dressed up their store fronts ala Diagon Alley. I didn't go. More...

Hello Mymare - I am just stopping in to say, Hello. My sister lives in Hoffman Estates. Is that any where near you? I know I have seen Naperville, but I can't remember just where. Maybe you are closer to Joliet? We have other relatives in Ottawa, Street and Kankakee. And still more relatives More...

Was surprised to get a bunch of emails. Playing Sudoku can take up a lot of time, especially the tougher puzzles. I love checking out the photos though.

How is the weather in Chicago? Saw on the news you guys have had a bit of rain too. Would you believe yesterday was sunny and More...

I just wish scriptwriters would write more roles for the man, he is a delight to watch...and he won't be around too many years ahead...

Hi Mary,
Thank you for greeting me on my brand new page, which I didn't even know I had. Compared to some here we are almost in each other's lap. I am indeed in Urbana IL.

Good morning, Mary. Thanks for stopping by. Sorry things are such a mess here! I've got unpacking and arranging to do. A few pictures on the wall should spruce things up a bit.

My mom was from Chicago and I spent lots of time there as a child. I loved it but remember the summers as being hot and humid! Hope you get some cooling weather soon!

Mary, I'm so glad you came by my page again. And thanks so much for the lemonade - perfect for a beautiful summer day. I hope it has cooled down a little in your neck of the woods. Our weather has been gorgeous the past couple of days. It is usually fairly warm, but has been in the 70's and More...

Chess pie is very rich - like a custard or thick pecan pie without the pecans! Very southern and full of sugar.
I've been to Chicago twice and loved it. Have you been to Georgia. It is hot More...

Thank you for stopping by.
It really must be nice to have just turned on your AC. Ours have been on since June and if I had had my way it would have been sooner.

Thanks for stopping by and come again soon. The plan has been for a few weeks to add some new pics of my favorite subject, but alas it has not happened.

hi Mary, we've chatted before about books - do you like movies? we just watched Premonition with Sandra Bullock - it was a little weird - turned out decent, but over the edge. also saw The Holiday. that was a good chick flick. got any recommendations?

Dear Mary: I have been remiss in not returning the welcome wishes from each of you. Have relatives in Naperville (stepfather lived there most of his life - 60 years - last name Brons).

Thanks again for your kindness-

Hi Mymare, or Mary (??)
Thanks for stopping by my page. We went to Chicago last summer for a short vacation. The kids were more excited to be in a big hotel than to see the King Tut exhibit, Sears Tower, Art Institute, etc. Columbus OH tries to be a big city but it never will be like Chicago!

Thank you for the Birthday Wishes last week. I had dinner with Mom that evening. She then flew up to Portland, OR for a Class Reunion (68th) and flew back for the wedding on Saturday of her only grand-nephew (my cousin’s son – 41, first marriage). Mom (85) refused to take a nap after getting up at More...

hi Mary, just wanted to let you know we watched the DVD, Holiday, recently. it was good. (cameron diaz and kate winslet) - in case you havent already seen it, it is worth watching. a good mindless chick flick.

Gday Mymare, long time, no drop in to say hi to you. Sorry about that. Hope this note finds you and yours well.
A bunch of daffodils from my garden to brighten up your day.

wow, you have quite a list of on-going books, etc. i've taken a break from reading. i'm listening to Our Founding Fathers on tape (ipod, actually) and crocheting little girl sock trims, afgans, trim on baby fleece blankets, and doilies. that's taking all my free time right now. i can do all More...

Thank you Mary, I appreciate your thoughts and prayers, it is hard but we all know she is better off now and waiting for us over Rainbow Bridge.

, Mary. Thanks for the visit and birthday greeting. We have had cooler weather, too, and have even had the blessing of rain. The weather was perfect in the mountains for the Backcountry Horsemen dinner and life is good! Next weekend is the annual Storytellers Festival, so I'm More...

Congratulations, Mary, on that mile-long swim! What a wonderful accomplishment, and one you can be proud of. In case no one was waiting at the finish line to cheer you on, I'm sending you as a reward for a job well done!

Hello, Mary, it's good to meet you! Are the Cubs winning? I wish them well!

Stop by when you have time - the coffee is usually fresh and I'm learning how to make margueritas. We can chat.

Hi, Mary! Gotta tell 'ya, Cleveland fans are hoping for a Cleveland vs Cubs World Series - they think it woiuld be really great! I'd just like to see both teams get that far!

I guess I'll have to root for your cubbies as the marlins are long gone and the dolphins don't look much better.

Thank you for the birthday wish. It has been rainy here all weekend and is supposed to continue. Good luck to your cubs.
