Least Favorite Time of the Year

We have entered my least favorite time of the year. Ah, I know what you are thinking! It’s spring! The snow has melted, the flowers are coming up and the birds are chirping. How can you possibly hate all that? And you would be right in that just like everybody […]

Sunday Drives

Sunday Drives

Yesterday we went for a Sunday drive. The Desrochers six piled into the minivan and headed off to destinations unknown. We ended up in northeastern Pennsylvania. Visited a Kmart.
