(and Alexa shuffles music by The Chicks)


Stay safe, stay sane, and please stay tuned. Happiness is not only allowed but also encouraged.

    Ella knows how to celebrate!
    Philadelphia is jubilant and so am I. Imagine this! We will have a President who speaks in complete sentences. Can he start Monday?

    • On behalf of all the family in South Carolina, let us send a very loud THANK YOU to your state – you kept the faith – and you were oh, so, right. The country is grateful to the state of Pennsylvania for helping to rescue our endangered democracy.
      Bless you and yours.

    She’s drinking from a camel back cup! Tilting her head up high, draining the cup. My grandsons do the same. It is like they are drinking life.
