Me, myself and I went to the big city of Chicago. I do enjoy heading there by Amtrak from Quincy which is an hour from here and then a little over a four hour ride by train to Chicago. So you put some time in to go just for a day, but I have done that many a time just to enjoy a few things plus the ride and head home.

This time I decided to take a three day vacation in this wonderful city. I went by myself again, as I enjoy doing that more then with a group like I have done sometimes for a day trip. Anyway, I got off the train and took a taxi to Hard Rock Hotel on N. Michigan, amongst the Magnificent Mile ... Read more →

Over this past weekend we went to visit my daughter and family on the Ranch in Ritzville. They are 4th generation on the ranch. Still true to the old cowboy ways and do most of the cow work horseback --which I have shown before. We were just visiting and looking for wildflowers out in the hills ... Read more →

Ok, I'm posting this picture to throw you off a bit, because I'm about to get personal here and I want to distract you with this adorable baby girl, Emmalyn James (don't you just love her name?).

So, it's What's Up Wednesday, where I fill you in on what's been going on this week and though we've had other things happening, the only thing I can focus on is the fact that I'm 50 years old and will be getting braces in two weeks. Yes, you heard that right......braces!

With that said, let me point out that I am about to get very humble over the next two years, starting with this post, where I point out my smile and what's wrong with it ... Read more →

Captain America: Cival War Review

Posted on May 4, 2016 by Jennifer Hunter, Sister #1872

I luckily got to see this movie last night. Yes, go see it! It's a great movie and shouldn't be missed. The action starts right at the get-go and continues throughout the whole show.

Don't be fooled by the title and the team picking (#teamCap or #teamIronMan) this movie is not simply a Captain America / IronMan movie. It's a whole Avengers packed film picking up where “Avengers: Age of Ultron” left off (with, I feel, a lean towards IronMan more than the other heroes) ... Read more →

Where did April go? We picked up our meat birds and they are doing fine and getting big, we moved them out of the brooder and now they are outside. I went on a two day Midwest Farm Girls Seed and Sew bus tour to 7 quilt shops here in the Midwest visiting shops in Minnesota, Iowa and here in Wisconsin. The theme of the trip was from the Farm Girl Vintage book by Lori Holt ... Read more →
