Better Catch It

If Life is Passing You By…….Better Catch It!

Lighten Your Day

I recently made a call to my oldest and dearest friend.  We have been friends for way too long to put in a time frame.

When her husband is away at work she gets up very early in the morning.  Well at least by 7:30 am.

Her husband works long horrible hours when he is working and then has some brief breaks in between.

He is off work this week.

So 8:00 am rolls around and I give her a call.

Her husband answers the phone.  Hey, is she up?  No.  I just got up to have some coffee and she is still in bed.

WOW! She usually gets up at the crack of dawn?

Well, Dawn doesn’t live here anymore and she never liked her crack.

We laugh and enjoy the moment.

Hope you have those moments too.

Mt St Helens

Hard to believe 37 years have passed.

Not only for Mt St Helens eruption but for me as a human.


Top photo taken by Joann Mixon in the summer of 1979 at base of Mt St Helens. Regular 35 millimeter Fugi Film camera.


This photo taken the day of the eruption from the top of Mt Brynion, Kelso WA.  Actually a very safe place at the time.  This is an original photo taken by Alene Albright with a regular 35 millimeter Fugi Film camera.

Mt St Helens was my childhood stomping grounds.

Spirit Lake is no more.

Coldwater Lake is it’s replacement.  I encourage you to visit and dip your feet into Coldwater because the water is not cold at all.  It is actually, very warm.

Have a blessed day.
