A moment from my day… 


Closing Notes…  I saw Dirty Dancing years ago when it was first released and loved it. Then a few weeks or so ago I saw that there is a re-make of it. I decided to dvr the original and the new one to compare them. I don’t really understand why they re-make movies that have such high rating. Could the new version possibly be better? I haven’t watched them yet, but if you have I’d love to hear your thoughts.

A moment from my day… Jaspurr not only loves to crawl inside boxes etc., she also loves to crawl inside book covers 


Closing Notes… I’ve loved taking day trips since I was young, and I’m searching online for some new towns to visit. I’ve found quite a few and hopefully next week my daughter and I can go visit one.  At the top of the list is a town that’s not too far away that has murals on a lot of the buildings. I love murals.
