 My wonderful parents

I do adore these people, 
as well as that fluffy one in the middle
who is looking out of the corner of his eye at the camera.

He's thinking,
"Hurry up! Take the picture! You know I'm afraid of stairs."

Yes, we have no bananas

When I went to the local market to buy prebagged, 
overripe, discounted bananas
(which I cut into chunks and freeze
for later addition to my morning oatmeal), 
I also saw another display with unbagged bananas.

And this sign:

You'd think these would be the ones discounted, wouldn't you?

Disclaimer: Since I don't speak or write another language, 
I have enormous admiration for all who make their best attempt at my language.  
I'm very grateful to those who make the effort that I have not.
So no disrespect intended.

Walking to End Alzheimer's

 2011 Walk to End Alzheimer's

 Last year on a cold and blustery day
Gerrit joined me in the Walk to End Alzheimer's.
Thanks to the generosity of our family and friends, 
we were the top fundraisers for our local walk.

 This year, I walked in memory of Gerrit
with my cousin and two friends.

It was a glorious day.

And our family and friends came through.  Again.
I have much to be thankful for.
