Mountains - Yes, I've had the privledge of seeing the Rocky Mountains of Canada. It was in 1974, when my daughter was five years old. We flew to Cranbrook, British Columbia to visit her father's relatives. The City of Cranbrook is surrounded by two mountain ranges...the Rockies and the Purcells. Here are a couple of photos of the area.

So now you can see why I love the mountains. I would love to live in this small city in the Interior of British Columbia.
Meeko - Meeko is our Alaskan malamute and I love him dearly. He is a great companion and would give his life to protect us. Though he is usually very laid back, he can become very cross when strangers approach our property. He is sociable when he is out for a walk and never challenges other dogs, but if they challenge him he can become a bit irritated.

Michelle - My only child, my daughter, Michelle. She will be 40 in a couple of weeks. Where has the time gone. She is a pharmacy technician, holds down her job and raises two sons, ages 11 and 13, one of which is on the Autism Spectrum.
Margaret - My mother who is 81 years old and very independent. She has many talents. She can paint, do a wide variety of crafts. Mom sews, quilts and writes poetry.
Mary Margaret - I love the name that my parents gave me. The Mary was for my maternal grandmother...Margaret for my mother. I've always been very interested in the women of the Bible whose names start with M. Mary, the mother of Jesus, Mary and Martha and Mary Magdalene have all piqued my interest. What were their daily lives like? How did they withstand the crucifixtion and still maintain their faith. These are just a few of the questions that I'd like to find the answers to.
Mysteries - I love reading mysteries.
Mockingbird - I had never seen a mockingbird until 2005. On a trip to Arkansas, a bird was singing in a large tree outside of a motel room. The song intrigued me, as did his appearance. I asked the owner of the motel what kind of bird it was and she told me it was a mockingbird. One of my favorite books is To Kill a Mockingbird.
Macaroni & Cheese - I love macaroni and cheese made the way that my grandmother cooked it. Mom can come very close to duplicating it. It is delicious.
Moose - We have moose in Ontario and I have seen them from a distance. They are one of my favorite animals. They are so ugly they are magnificent. There's nothing like seeing a moose in its natural habitat...however, use caution. Moose will charge at the slightest provocation, especially in rutting season, which is in the fall.
Moon - I love walking at night when the moon is full and the moonbeams light my path. Meeko and I often take a longer walk on nights when the moon is full. There's something magical about the moon on freshly fallen snow or its reflection on the water. One of my favorite things to do with my protector, Meeko.
