THIS IS A FUN PAGE... YOU GET TO KNOW MORE ABOUT ME AND MY FAMILY!
Josh (almost 5 yo) and I with our new Detroit Tiger shirts waiting to watch the game. The date on the pic is wrong. Aug. 31, 2016 was the date. He loves his shirt (and mama). Jimmy John the bird is in the cage on the right. He also watches the games with us.
Mr. Peanut was "born" in 1916 and is still number one but...guess who is number two!! Because I took my Mr. P doll (in my hand in the pic), that made me a special friend of Mr. Peanut and I got a special gift. It was a flash drive that is shaped and looks like Mr. P! What a fun time it was meeting him and talking to the Peanutters who travel with him in a 24 foot long truck that looks like a peanut called...the NUTmobile.
I grew in Adrian Michigan playing softball and enjoying youth group activities at church. By 13 years old I was on a traveling summer softball team. I played softball summers until 1973.
