This cactus we discovered just a half mile from our house. It starts out as a 4 or 5 inch tight red bud. The first ones we saw on Saturday afternoon. Sunday early afternoon they had not changed much then at 6:pm they were starting to open. By Monday morning they were full beautiful white blooms and by Monday evening they were starting to wither. By tomorrow they will turn dark and fall to the ground, much like a hand full of feathers. Isn't nature wonderful?
Here are a few pictures that are in no particular sequence. However they are reminders of some of the best and worst times in our life. Mostly for the best. The flowers have a certain meaning and Garn gives them to me like this every anniversary. The 3 pinks are for the 3 darling daughters that we have. The 2 whites are for the sad times when we lost both of our boys. The red is for our long and sustaining love. In the pictures you will see friends, old and new that are so important in our lives, even tho some of them we rarely see. Anyway, HAPPY 53rd ANNIVERSARY TO GARN & DOROTHY.

I love technology and the changes we have to keep making. Music is a very big part of my life, photography is a time consuming hobby,also watching tennis,and I love traveling, especially with my family.
I have a awesome husband that supports me in everything I do. I also have 3 beautiful and talented daughters, 9 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. We own a apartment complex and manage them ourselves, so we work harder than anyone can imagine, but that is what keeps us going.
