It appears that a couple of local neanderthals were released from their batting cages the other night. They proceeded to do “manly” things with their bats, proving to our rural neighborhood once again, that high levels of testosterone with alcohol and mailboxes do not mix
Why can't they just stick to t-ball??!!??

Balance in life is very important. We are always hearing how we need to have a balanced checkbook, a balanced diet, a balanced budget, a balanced body, a balanced mind. Essentially be well-balanced. . . "BALANCE". . . Definitely don't want to be "imbalanced", which seems to scare everyone. So maintaining your "balance" is really important and not always so easy.
My husband lost his balance, which resulted in a visit to the ER and days in the ICU. . .The ICU with all it's bells, whistles, bright lights and alarms is not exactly where you would choose to get your balance restored. It is a slow process.
I would have chosen a day at the spa or weekend on the beach or just keeping my balance!!!!!!

Once again, laughter does the heart good like medicine!!

English translation should be close to: “from the center of my life came a great fountain” or at least that is what I have been told. That is the feeling I had after leaving my friends in Canada. When I started my trip, I was so ready for some rest and relaxation. After a couple of months dealing with loss, grief and other family issues, I was definitely in need of some recharging. My batteries were pretty low, if not just about dead. I was in need of some CPR and a couple of shocks to the heart. It was just marvelous to see what therapy an infusion of laughter, hiking, camping, awesome scenery, gourmet meals, crazy friends, and more laughter did to renew my soul and spirit! Bungee shorts, rot gut, hot springs, pizza on the grill, reruns, ting-tings, aeromint bars, lakes, rivers, sunsets, sunrises. These were just a few of my favorite things.
“A merry heart does good like a medicine”. I am so grateful to my friends for giving me a maximum dose of “merry” until “from the center of my life came a great fountain, deep blue shadows on azure sea water”.
