Der Bingle is here

April 30th, 2011 · 1 Comment

Just a few minutes ago, the LaCrosse pulled into the driveway and Der Bingle arrived from Iowa. It was a sad journey for him, going out there to be with his brother as they said goodbye to Jody. But it was also a good trip – one that spoke of family ties and caring. Last […]

Zee sun, it came out

April 30th, 2011 · No Comments

Yesterday, after I went to a follow-up appointment about the colonoscopy with “the butt doctor”,  Summer and I celebrated the sun and rising temperature by mowing. She was on the Toro cart mower and I manned the Wheel Horse – we mowed for hours at Mother’s. We took the dogs and, of course, Shane did […]

Testing the “stick this post to front page” option

April 28th, 2011 · No Comments

Maybe I will start playing around with some of the different things WordPress can do, now that I have done a search on how to keep Lon’s remarks about Jody at the top of the post line-up. Such experimentation could prove disastrous, though, with cows totally upside down or falling out of computers onto my […]

Jody’s mother, Sue, sent me what Lon had written last fall about their daughter.

Jody Lynn Vance 1985-2011

April 25th, 2011 · 2 Comments

LZP sent a text message this morning at 7:41; I saw it just a while ago. His daughter, Jody, passed away today. She suffered from a rare genetic disease that was diagnosed when she was a wee girl – very smart, bubbly, good-natured. She was so loved by her parents all of her life. Der […]

Easter eggs

April 23rd, 2011 · No Comments

Take these two products, lots of eggs and my 14-year-old granddaughter and wait for tomorrow’s picture posting. I know – you are thinking, “14?” Well, why not? I’m certain there will be many “modifications” to the process and resulting grins, laughs and guffaws. How about a Goth Easter Egg? East Eggs with and Attitude?
