I dont golf, but I would think about it, if I got to drive those little golf cartsf around.

spent yesterday morning around the pool, wearing my thong bathing suit (lol) not
 I got a little bit of a suntan (in Novemeber) amazing
today we are going to see the Wrigley Mansion
(in honour  of this, I am going to pop in a little piece of gum in my mouth)
today its cloudy,
 in all my years I have come here I have never seen a cloud, it's windy as well,
but its still 65 degrees, and at home its below zero and snowing, so you guess which one I
would rather be at
I keep rubbing it in to hubby  over the phone especially when he has the snow blower out

have I told you that the friends i am going to Phoenix with
I have been friends with for at 36 years.  Some friends come and go in your life, and some friends just stick. We are the kind of friends that even if we didn't see each other for a long time, it would be like we just saw each other yesterday.  We go away every year together, and we have a blast.  We all are very laid back and  just go along with the flow.  We talk non stop about everything under the sun, I am sure the TV  never goes on.  We all like the same things, we all love to read, we love to shop, go to different restaurants  have a few good drinks and we all love relax.  I cherish these friends. Everyone needs to have a friend or friends like this in their life, I hope you do.

Oh November

There is going to old old art on here, for the next 12 days as I will be away in Phoenix  so some of you will never have seen it, and some of you might remember it , but come back and see how I have progressed as the years passed by.
