Jeff’s Motorcycle

Our yard was finally dry enough yesterday that Jeff could get his motorcycle out to go for a ride, and he wanted to get some pictures of it before he went riding.  It’s a good thing he went when he did, because it’s been raining almost since he got back home!

Clara – today

Hip-O-Kat’s 2nd Anniversary

I got a chance to visit with Denise for a […]
