Ode to the Pink Chairs

Ode to the Pink Chairs

My Weight Watcher’s meeting has been in its new location for several weeks now but I have to admit, I’m having trouble adjusting.

Make ’em if you’ve got ’em

Make ’em if you’ve got ’em

I think the reason people started making New Year’s resolutions is because by the end of the holiday season we are all so sick of feeling fat and sluggish and sentimental that once the last piece of tinsel has been wrapped to be stored and the last champagne glass is tucked away behind the everyday … Continue reading

Last week was the 35th Anniversary  (36 depending on who you’re asking) Thanksgiving Celebration. It is a weekend that lasts an entire … Continue reading
