Ringing and Singing in the Rain - Laura Filip   I spoke with Laura Filip today. She is located in Whitesboro, TX.

Rekindling My Blogging Mojo       For years, I wrote many blogs each week, commented regularly and generally spent time playing in the Rain.

My Little Spidey     My little one decided he needed to add a hat to his outfit the other day as it had gotten a little cold for him.  It was about 50 degrees, and yes he's from Southern California.   He then stopped on our way out of the gym and insisted that I needed a picture.  I couldn't agre...
