Do you ever feel like you need a translator to interpret your kids’ or young co-workers’ text messages? You’re not alone.
We are living in a day and age where actually talking on the phone, like voice-to-voice, ear-to-ear style, has become a laborious, inconvenient rarity.

Halloween will fall on the weekend this year. It’s a great time to bond with your grandchildren and give them a little scary yet a fun experience this Halloween weekend.

The book is titled “The Wondrous World of McCamy”. My little angel got the book. Her mom said it was like Christmas in summertime as McCamy couldn’t contain her excitement and joy upon receiving her gift. They sat down, enjoyed the lovely colors and read the book together.

I love having time in summer for special activities to enjoy with my grandchildren. What’s your favorite time of the year? Some may say Winter as they like the holiday rush. Some will say autumn or spring as they love the falling leaves or flowers in full bloom. While many, including me and my grandchildren love summer! It’s the time of the year when school is out and everyone loves to go out and enjoy nature. Or even time to kick back and chill in the air conditioning. Read the rest of this entry →
