Americasmart never fails us! We started our market shopping with RAZ Imports being first on the list.

January 7, 2017 Valentine Wreath Parade Part 1

Saturday, January 7th, 2017

I still haven’t braved the cold weather to go down to the shop (beside our house where the video equipment is) to re-work the Santa wreath. It’s about 12 degrees today!

Well, today is Monday. Normally a “back to work” time, but businesses are taking the day for New Year’s so there is no mail or FedEx pickup. Carrie and David will be back working in the shop getting orders ready to go out for tomorrow though. Me, I’m supposed to have that free time blocked […]

Sunday, January 1st, 2017

After a traditional lunch with black eyed peas that my sister prepared at my dad’s house (he’s 94 and counting), we sat around and talked about things from the past about my mother, grandmother and grandfather.
