Seventeen blessings that make growing older worth the effort!!...and 2 more blessings since this picture was taken!

Wouldn't it be wonderful if your family were the envy of all your neighborhood? Not because your family had the biggest house, the fanciest car or the very best interior decorator.

The reason isn't that you are the parents of the most beautiful children, you have a "to die for spouse" and you command a 6 figure income.

The fact of the matter is, you don't own a fancy house, your car is a CarMax reject, and your interior decorator is the local Goodwill Store.

Is all of that important? No! What is important is that your family is "The Happiest Family on the Block"!

I will be sharing our secrets that worked with our 6 children, 6 sons and daughters-in-laws and 19 grandchildren! I will share secrets and ideas that we did do and wished we hadn't, things we didn't do, but wished we had, AND things we did do and are glad we got something right!! Hindsight is 20/20 you know!

The "happy family" revolves around:


Raising children





Hobbies- cooking, sewing, crafts, decorating

Making money


Being friends with your grown up children

Being the best grandparents you can be

Etc, etc, etc

Grab a cup of coffee, sit down, relax and let's visit!

Have you ever longed to have a luxurious top-of-the-line motor home? Sometimes I have thought it would so much fun to be able to just get in and travel wherever I wanted to go.. I don't think it will ever happen though. Yesterday my husband and I went to a "county fair", called Field Days of the Past, outside of Richmond, VA. It was the epitome of the old fashioned county fair from years ago. One of the displays was the first motor homes ever made, I think. Take a look at this!

This vintage motorhome had everything you could want... a  bunk that converted into a sofa, a tiny wood stove in the corner... cooking and heat! Don't let me forget to mention that towed along behind was  your own private bathroom. Your washing machine hung on the side along with your water supply. I mean this was first class!!! I bet it got a lot better gas mileage!
Oh yes, I forgot! If you bought this at the fair they had an incredible deal! They would throw in 3 dozen eggs and a chicken!! If I had needed eggs I might have been tempted!
