Travel Memories: Good Times

Thank goodness it’s May. April was a tough month for us. We received one piece of bad news after another. You know that saying, “When it rains, it pours.” That’s been our life lately. I won’t burden you with our troubles, but I will say no one died, no one is sick, no one is getting divorced, and no one lost their job. Saying that makes me feel a ton better. Things aren’t that bad. However, I will say that we’reย stressed, frustrated, andย tired. At least we have each to lean on to get through this. That always helps. And I won’t lie, I could use a drink. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

  15. Sorry to hear you had a lousy April. May’s got to be better, right? Have a great weekend, TBM.

    You know what, it’s Friday and I do believe I will join you in that! It is pizza night afterall, so I feel it’s a moral imperative to had a cold pint too! Cheers to a better and brighter May.

  17. I find that suds with a bud gets me through tough times. I hope that quaffing suds with your significant bud has a medicinal effect and offsets the tough time.

  18. Jo Bryant says:

    I too hope you get to chill out and put whatever has been dogging you away for the weekend. I love that Miles bangs his bowl. Clever boy. Chevvy just pounces on me until I get the hint.
