Inside that bag are apples from a local orchard. Delish. I already made a dish of pseudo-apple crisp (no flour, no added sugar) and it was delicious. The … More New slippers for me

Bailey is seven today, 49 in dog years. He’s in the prime of his life.
Like the Griswalds in the “Vacation” movies starring Chevy Chase, we had a lot of ground to cover and not much time. For Memorial day weekend, we only had three days.
