Congratulations, Elisabeth and George Three

Happy together. Closing happened. The big family came together over the weekend to move furniture and boxes. Many boxes. Elisabeth and George Three are now in their first house together. Fantastic yard, too. Lovely house, big grounds. And it’s only 1.1 miles from our place. We think it’s marvelous. Congratulations, terrific daughter and fantastic fiancé.…

Great gift part II

My dear wife Karen took advantage of George Three’s traveling took kit for a second birthday present. In addition to putting up the towel hanger in the bathroom, the new living room art went up on the wall, too. I’d given her flowers for her birthday. I think the placement really came together. Thank you,…

Great gift part I

When terrific daughter Elisabeth wondered what my dear wife Karen might want for her birthday, her thoughts went to home improvement. Fiance George Three packed his took kit. The towel hanger Karen had purchased online went up so easily for him. Karen loves it! Me, too.

When I heard about the big, bad traffic jam on the New York State Thruway, my mind went to the kids. Sometimes terrific daughter Elisabeth and/or fiance George Three take that route from work back to the east. I hadn’t heard from her via text, but I shouted out early the next morning. Yes, George…

Practice makes perfect

The family and special friends had a grand time getting ready the night before Kimi and Keven’s wedding. Yes, Aunt Jana will have the honors of officiating! The rehearsal sure looked grand in the photos texted to me by my dear wife Karen. I really did feel like I was there, all but sitting on…

Happy sisters

The sisters have not gotten together since 2019 because the biennial Miner family reunion has stalled. I can tell that Jana and Lynne are quite happy that their middle sibling Karen is taking their photo in Hot Springs, Ark., the day before Lynne’s daughter Kimi marries Kevin.

They appreciate my dear wife Karen

My dear wife Karen recently took a trip to Hot Springs, Ark., to see our niece Kimi wed her wonderful fiance Kevin. Though invited, I am still feeling reluctant to go through airports and flights and such what with COVID hanging about and even kicking back up in the fall months. I’m boosted, but don’t…

Breathe deep

I have to admit that this sign outside a stop-and-sign stand at the fall food truck rally made my brain stop and double clutch. I didn’t realize they were giving away an air cleaner machine until I thought about it. I first thought that that scuba divers were in some sort of particle danger from…
