Word Economy, Interesting stuff and our morning.


I really do want to cut down on my blog entry. I run off at the fingers too much, sorta like writing a chapter in a book.

Before I start if you like nature and wild life, visit Dar/Mel/Cher, three sisters raised in the North Woods of Wisconsin. Cher is now a YOOPER (Upper Michigan)

Dar is here:

Now for today,

Workshop 011

(I got this for my sweetheart in 1956)

Today I fixed breakfast:

An Apple, prunes, Cranberries, Strawberries, pecans Almond Milk and oatmeal (blended for 3-4 minutes to the tune of a hickory stick (That little ditty readin’, writin’ and ‘rithmetic…ran thru my mind this morning))!(The blender is washed immediately after the smoothie is poured)

Then just as soon as we finish our ‘smoothie’ I wash the two glasses Then it is my favorite time, coffee across the table from my LOVE. This time, (with no one to share her with), is honestly the best time(s) of my life, she is the best thing that ever ‘happened’ to this guy. I try to tell her at least ‘once’ a day.

Holding her each day becomes more important. Every day I realize just how much she has affected my life. She likes to think of herself as a ‘cotton mill, girl’.   She was raised on a Mill Hill and has worked in the mill, but she is and has been much, much more. She switched to office work and it fit her to a ‘T’. In storage are stacks of plaques and letters of commendation for her work after leaving the mill and marrying a 17 year old kid.

Workshop 013

The center plaque is hers, enhanced by seals from all branches of Military service. This was her retirement from Civil Service when she worked for the Army.

Oh Yeah, folks do mistake us for newly weds on our second marriage, most are surprised when we say we have been married over 58 years. As a matter of fact, that number  amazes me! Who me? It doesn’t seem that long ago that I married this beauty.

I really do like enjoying life, rather than just living.



I picked these up from Louis out on the left coast. They are not the same car, but don’t you love it when the above is given a new life?




These are from the Proud Packard line…



You and Sherry are perfect together. I will have to check out the other blogs.

I agree that you and Sherry are a great couple. I think it's wonderful how long you've been married, you are a good role model for others to aspire to..

Amazing ... I profess to dislike fruit, but that smoothie sounds delicious!
Some might call them 'ordinary moments' (that) you spend with Sherry enjoying your coffee, but from this gal's point of view that's pretty wonderful. More young men (and women!) should take a page from you, telling Sherry what she means to you every day.
