Non-Scale Victory 

Carmen and traveled to Walt Disney World over the Fourth of July holiday. In the past, I would have had to rent a scooter just to get around.  I wouldn’t be able to ride any rides (or if I did my bones would not like me). This time was SO different.  I was able not… Continue reading Non-Scale Victory

Cold Cuts and Cheese

Carmen and I spent some time last week (around the 4th) at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. We ate at several wonderful places at each park, but one that is really special to us is the Brown Derby in Hollywood Studios.  The Starring Rolls Cafe (just outside The Brown Derby) is a tapas and lounge… Continue reading Cold Cuts and Cheese

My Baby Girl’s Senior Year

Travel and Weather

Oh my…in the travel to Houston from Florida…we went from 70/80 degrees temperatures to a 20 degree decrease in about 5 minutes.  We could “see” the front come through.  Remarkable. On Friday in the drive home, it didn’t get above 40 until past Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  The water ways, in the “coastal plains” were covered… Continue reading Travel and Weather
