The reason for my absence

DSC_1868

There is a new love in my life. She arrived as a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift to our family and I was finally able to make the trip to meet her. Fortunately she inherited her good looks from her mother and father: she looks very much like her mother did when she was a baby. I won’t try to describe my feelings for her and her new family because this is a blog post and not a book.

Now I will re-enter the blog world again and slowly start trying to catch up with all I have missed in my absence. I expect that will be a little like entering a freeway into California traffic.

    • Thanks Lynn! I was in your area last week and would have contacted you but had to cut my time short due to a physical problem I had. I will visit again!

      • Next time is perfect. I’m having a knee replacement in July – so I will be around if not walking much.

        • I’m glad you are having the knee replacement Lynn! I had a replacement a little over two years ago and it’s doing great. I can now take any hike with it. Over 3500 miles on the new knee and it feels great! Work hard on the rehab… it’s worth all the effort!

  11. Of all the things I imagined, this wasn’t on the list! She’s beautiful, and I can only imagine the happiness she’s already brought. I’d say she’s blooming as brightly as any Montana flower — and probably moreso!

  15. Congratulations Terry (and she looks gorgeous too).
    So glad you were able to visit and see her in person.

    (Don’t worry about what you have missed in the blogging world – just start afresh from today – so much easier).

  20. ah, the joy of a new baby in the family and in ones life. so happy for you all!
    the Calif. freeway comparison made me chuckle, so different than anything in Montana! When people complain about traffic here, well it makes me smile.
