These are my active friendships here at home.  I have many more friends from my past that I am still in contact with, but we don't see each other often.  And then, of course there are my blogging friends, one of which I will be meeting in Australia and others that I hope to meet with sometime in the future :)

Last but not least, the year 2024 is an election year here in the USA.  An election that is tearing our country apart between ...

A man who fights for the working class in our country ...

Thursday Art Day and Dinner Date ... Stranded in Snow


Stranded in Snow



Izzi was a snow lovin' dog and we had plenty of deep snows when we lived on the lake ...


The pictures below are from Public Domain as my pictures of this day are all slides ... I worked in downtown Chicago and was stranded there until the next day when they finally got the trains running.  However when we got home no one could come pick us up at the train so we had to walk about two miles on the streets that were plowed .  My neighbor was with me and he had to stop at a store on the way home because he had to buy milk for his new born baby.  It was quite a harrowing experience.









So far nothing since has come close to this ... as I recall we had 20+ inches of snow dropped between when I left for work that morning and when I was supposed to be going home that evening  :(

I love snow, but this was a bit much.  Hope you all are home safe and warm ...
