Looking Over 2012

I can’t believe this is the last day of 2012! Well, I’d better believe it because tomorrow is 2013! This has been an interesting year. I started it out with Shingles! That wasn’t fun! Jerry took OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAgood care of me! What would I do without him?

I went to Colorado in March to celebrate my mother’s 98th birthday! Happy Birthday, Mother!

Jerry and I went on a trip with daughter and son-in-law, Pam and Gene, to Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada to attend our granddaughter, Annie’s high school graduation.

We had a great time and traveled part of the way on US 2, my favorite highway!

My favorite highway goes all the way from the UP of Michigan to Everett, Washington!
