It was fun to have a friend of 50 years visit the mouse-house today.

Mina and I went to school together, raised a bit of hell in our teens, shared two apts. and have enjoyed watching each other's life enfold over the years.
She's an avid gardener and fabulous cook
and gave me a few tips to enhance my perennial gardens that were passed down to her from her grand-father.

It was great to see her again.


Do you recognize these two little munchkins in the window?
This was taken in 2012
Audrey was only six months old.
If I recall, they were watching the school kids get off the school bus beside our house. :)

hugs, Deb
