My heart is heavy today, as are many....
I remember this day like it was yesterday...

Two years ago we visit NYC
and the 9/11 memorial

As sad as that day is it's worth a visit 
to pay respect 
to honor those lost souls

God Bless America!

Wednesday Hodgepodge

Joining Joyce @ From this side of the Pond for Hodgepodge today!

1. What's something you're never too young or too old to enjoy?
I'm gonna say cotton candy.....I love it!
2. Share one happy memory from your high school years.
I really hated HS so this is a tough one....Probably graduation and hanging out with friends...being carefree. 
3. A nationwide strike of fast food employees took place in the U. S. last week...they're calling for higher wages and the right to unionize? Your thoughts?
My opinion is working at a fast food restaurant is meant for a stepping stone not a career for life. 
4. September is National Honey Month...what's a favorite dish you make or eat that calls for honey?
Kale salad or Honey mustard pecan crusted Salmon...both yum!
5.  If you notice someone with a tag sticking out, a button unbuttoned, a shirt on inside-out, or some leftover lunch stuck between their teeth do you say something or do you keep quiet? 
I say something...cause I'd want someone to tell me!
6. What movie always makes you cry?  Or at least makes you feel like crying?
Any Nicolas Sparks movie....I'm a crier when it comes to movies and just about anything can do it for me! 
7.   'Mary Had a Little Lamb' was written in May of 1830, and published in Juvenile Miscellany in September of that same year.  Now for the fun part...create your own four line rhyme using that same tune.
My computer gets too much spam too much spam....lalalala♫
8.  Insert your own random thought here.
Five things on my mind right now....

2. I'm happy it's September
3. In love with Pumpkin Ale Beer
4. I miss my girl
5. Wish I had some candy corn and that my friend would be my dinner....and the pumpkin beer!

Happy Wednesday!

Katelyn's pets...

Sophie tried to go with Katelyn.....

 But than she realized she could have her bed all to her self....

And she has taken full advantage

And Katelyn's state fair fish
didn't fare so well

RIP Goldie!

Sorry empty nesters are busy and forgetful!

Two weeks ago...

We loaded up the car and took Katelyn back to school for her Sophomore year.....

 See that lil spot left? That was my default cause I'm the shortest in the family!

The girl has a lot of stuff....but it all fit
If you don't count the storage unit at school full also!

Her home away from home..

First day of Sophomore year photo!

Her suite mates!

We miss her a ton....
But seeing that smile makes it easier!
She is one happy girl!
