Kenny and I spent a large portion of yesterday with my Mother. It made for an enjoyable, relaxing day. We got up, showered, dressed and leisurely headed to over to see Izzy on the square at Bluebonnet Antiques.

Back in March, our Very Nice Old Neighbor Guy died. For the past nine months, I’ve noticed that his flowers aren’t quite as vibrant, his grass isn’t quite as tidy, and his wife isn’t quite as smiley.
