I’ve been away from my blog for quite awhile. I’m not sure why I took such a long hiatus; I just know that I was writing fairly regularly until I got word that my uncle in Ohio had died. He was in his 90’s so it wasn’t totally unexpected but for me, he was the… Continue reading I’m Back!
This could have been a trifecta week as far as concerts are concerned; a rain out of the first concert changed the number of concerts to two.
