    by , 08-26-2010 at 09:18 PM

    Vavoom the In The Parks blog is back like a rocket from a week long survey of Southern California's top parks and attractions. And it's another good one folks! The end of Summer means a big increase in construction at nearly all of the local parks. Halloween continues to stagger slowly into the parks but crowds were lite this week nearly everywhere. So, let's

  2. Ben is back.

    by , 08-26-2010 at 05:48 PM
    That cat did sneak out of the house. Not sure exactly when he did that. However, after a thorough search of the inside of the house, we did a search of the backyard, and surrounding neighborhood. After calling out Ben's name outside, he strolls out of the bushes, like nothing was wrong.

    He wouldn't come to his owner, Diana, but Kathy managed to be able to pick him up.

    We were all really scared that Ben might have gotten hurt, and was laying dead somewhere. My ...
  3. Missing a cat.

    This morning I was straightening up under the stairs. kathy put some stuff under there that, quite frankly, was in my way. So I was moving that, and then moving some stuff out to my garage.

    Well she came home from her therapy session, and she can't find Ben. We searched the entire building from top to bottom, and no Ben. We can't figure out where he ...
  4. Packing Day

    Today I pack my suitcase. It's not a very big suitcase, but a seven day vacation to the Wilderness Resort doesn't require a huge suitcase. First of all we have a washer and dryer in our room now since we bought into the Glacier Canyon Time Share at the Wilderness. That means I can bring a little bit less, and sometimes I even come home with clean stuff.

    by , 08-25-2010 at 07:18 PM
    In just a few short days, I am off to Wisconsin Dells with my husband of 44 years, and my grandson of 17. We have been doing this every Summer for about a dozen years, and I have really grown to love the time away from Chicago.

    The Dells is fun, but it's not Disneyland. I can't get my husband to make a trip across the country to California, so I have to settle for the next best thing.

    That means that we head for a destination that is just three hours away. ...
