Not Walking

Some of you may have wondered where have I been. Certainly not on my blog. Apparently when I had my knee replaced last July, the doctor also removed my interest in writing. With little walking there wasn’t much to write about. The recovery was slow. I had too much pain. But we were going places…

Looking for Little Free Libraries

We were in Rogue River, Oregon (a small town between Medford and Grants Pass) on Memorial Day weekend. This little Free Library and home were well decorated. Do you have a little free library near you? The following was originally,  posted in November 2015 In my travels and in walking around town, I have found…

Need a Sunny Movie?
