Friends and frustrations…

It’s been a challenging month. In the midst of the usual familial stuff, we’ve also been dealing with a major fracture among some of our closest friends.

OK…I’m going to do my best to keep this typo free – LOL! Easier said than done with one hand! Here’s the story… One week ago today I went quad riding. Had a blast! We took a long trail up through Roger’s Trough and it was gorgeous. Saw some young deer – only 30 yards…
