Celebrating April 1st

Celebrating April 1st April 1st! Fools’ day? Well at least it is a day of humor for me.  I’ve always said God or the Universe or whatever you want to call it…always has a laugh waiting for me. I remember as a kid filling my uncle’s sugar bowl with salt – what a surprise that …

New Beginnings

New Beginnings  New beginnings are everywhere! The ground is soft to my step in the Dunes Labyrinth early in the morning…the deer have visited…the raccoons..and even the turkeys (sometimes they even fly in!). These days a little fellow (our new dog – 12 week old boxer/lab mix “Step”) steps right up…curious about everything…hardly understands the …
