I really need to remember my teenage daughter, Britty also. I fail to remember how lucky I am to have her around sometimes. She reminds me how to be happy.

"Remember that as a teenager you are at the last stage in your life when you will be happy to hear that the phone is for you."

Fran Lebowitz

She's always happy.


“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”

William Arthur Ward quotes (American dedicated scholar, author, editor, pastor and teacher)

I am grateful for my wife, Debbie. She made this week very nice.

I had a wonderful evening today. I bbq'd some great boneless chicken breasts, thanks to KC Masterpiece bbq rub. Debbie made a wonderful meal in the kitchen and dinner was fantastic. Debbie, Izzy and I walked to RiteAid for some ice cream and stopped at the park to play for awhile on the way home. Then a bath for Izzy and sleep for everyone.
