Wednesday, Dec. 09, 2015, 09:53 hours: Mayday distress call received from South Dakota via text message.

Transmission is as follows: I have an emergency request to have someone put the attached words on a board. I won’t be in Henderson until a week from tomorrow and our Friesen Christmas is on the 19th. My son is shipping the board he made from Austin, I should have it Friday here in South Dakota. Is this something you can fit in?


2016: The New Year Awakens

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016


It was exactly a week ago. Just one week ago today I was sitting in this very same recliner, the one in desperate need of recovering, tip-tap-tapping away on my iPad making promises I sincerely hoped to keep (by the way, week two post two for all you naysayers out there) and in the back of my mind planning on doing nothing the next day except sleeping in and possibly entertaining the thought of taking my Christmas decorations down. Little did I know what was in store for me with the dawning of the new year.


Hello 2016

Friday, January 1st, 2016


So I’m sitting here in the waning hours of 2015 thinking about what a horrible blogger I’ve become. I just cracked open my iPad case for the first time in almost two months and realized my last post was in October… AND IT WAS ABOUT AN EVENT THAT HAPPENED IN JULY!!!! So bad. So, so bad.
