Beauty and the Beast–A Beauty and the Beast A Cappella Medley by Lexie Walker and BYU Vocal Point……. 

Lexie Walker and Vocal Point are home grown Utah talent.  This is their rendition of Beauty and the Beast.  It is so well done and enchanting.  We have such wonderful talent here in Utah.  Enjoy!

( The new Disney movie just came out last Friday.  I thought that it was delightful!)


Happy 1st Day of Spring…….


It has been unusually warm here in Utah with the temperature setting new records such as 76 degrees.  You will hear no grumbling from me.  Spring is my favorite time of year.  I love that it is not too hot or cold.  My favorite thing about spring is all of the new growth in nature.  I have been obsessed with flowers and plants with early memories of me as a 2 year old toddler.  I went to my neighbor’s yard and was having so much fun picking their beautiful  flowers.  I was severely scolded as I recall with the punishment of not being allowed to leave our yard.

I was trying to look up the normal temperature for this time of year and this is what appeared.

I had to laugh because even the web page was enjoying the first day of spring.  Here in Salt Lake City the blossoms have literally popped out overnight.  It is so pleasurable to drive around the city and enjoy the new beginnings of this year’s season of spring.

Happy 1st Day of Spring!

A Peek Into Nature……….2017


What a majestic sight to see these bull elk just hanging out on the outer edge of National Elk Refuge in Jackson, Wyoming.  I love the elk in the middle that is licking a cattail for his afternoon snack.  It is a privilege to view this everyday event for the elk but one that is not easily captured by a camera.  It is a good day when I can get such a beautiful photograph.

What could be more refreshing, a diet coke with lots of ice, maraschino cherries and a lime?  Perfection………enough said.


Christmas Morning 2016

The boys had Santa deliver their presents at our house this year.  Their house is still torn up with remodeling projects ongoing.  Having the boys there on Christmas morning made the magical experience even more special.  We had a huge snowstorm and had at least 13 inches where we live.


Happy Birthday Dad…….


Today would have been my father’s 84th birthday.  I miss you still and always.  You were a wonderful father, husband, friend and the kindest man I have ever known.  I will see you again one day because families are forever.  I love you!
