Summer is history and Fall is coming fast. I hope everyone has had a great summer with memorable moments to help us through the winter to come. Summer is always a busy time around here. Travel is always fun and I have been to Colorado to see the grandkids and a ride to Maine on the motorcycle to visit my Motor Maid family. The mountains were magnificent as usual and the kids are getting bigger and more grown up, almost adults now. And Maine has the most wonderful lobster..yum. In between travels I did manage to get a lot accomplished though. It has all been posted to the site now.
