GO CARDS & Visit with Niece

Exciting game last night, thought for sure it was going to go to extra innings. It was a real nail biter.

Nice day here in Dardenne, could be warmer but got up to 65 with sun so didn't feel too bad.

I envy the beautiful fall colors everyone has had on their blogs, our trees are green or brown mostly. Drought really has not made for a pretty fall. A few sugar maples are pretty, but few and far between.Fallleaves10-27-13a

My niece Dianna and her hubby Larry have been spending time in Branson. They are on their way home to the Fort Wayne area and we managed to meet up with them for lunch.  It’s been way too long since we have seen them. I thought the oldest great niece was about 18….silly me, she’s now 29. Isn’t amazing how time can just slip right by you?


Dianna and Larry, aren’t they a beautiful couple. I know you wont believe this but during college she was a hair model, imagine that. :-) That all hers no extensions etc.

Wish we would have had more time to spend with them, but they had to hit the road as Larry has to open his practice in the morning

They have 4 daughters, 2 younger ones that are still at home, Dianna has home schooled them, and over the last few years they have taken in exchange students. At present they have a girl from Viet Nam and one from Thailand. Her girls also do competition horse jumping and have done quite well. Dianna like her Aunt Donna has always been an animal lover and is fortunate enough to have a very large property filled with horses, chickens, dogs etc. They are thinking of getting a motorhome since they do a lot of camping pulling the horse trailers to various shows. We told them how large and great the RV community is. They were surprised, did not realize the sense of community between the RVers.

Well don’t want to ramble….so I’ll close.

GO CARDS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As Sam would say…Be Safe out there.
