December 2

December 2nd is National Fritter’s day. Check out this link: http://www.nationaldaycalendar.com/national-fritters-day-december-2/

It is also the birthday of one of my favorite people, Thomas Hollearin.  Tom was my step-father and took care of us after my mother died.  They were only married 2 months.  He had no experience and was saddled with 3 kids.

Thanks for all you did for me.

December 1

Sometimes, we stand alone,

Surrounded by friends and family

Hidden by the grey clouds of winter and doubt.

Riddle Answer

An Monday I posted the following riddle:

If you drive East for 6 hours, leaving the starting point at at 10 am.  What time do you arrive at your destination?

If  you drive West for 6 hours, leaving your starting point at 10 am. What time do you arrive at your destination?

Leave your answers in the comment section.   I’ll let you know if you are correct on Wednesday!

So this is my answer ->

If you leave Dubuque, Iowa at 10 am and drive for 6 hours you will reach Battle Creek, Michigan at 5 pm.

If you leave Battle Creek Michigan at 10 am you will reach Dubuque, Iowa at 4 pm.

As I have heard from some of you it depends on where you start and where the time zones change.

Thanks for your comments.

A bit of sunshine

I woke up today

to a grey sky and rain.

Hoping for the sun.
