We leave on Wednesday to start our annual bay cruise. This past weekend we hauled the majority of everything we need for the 13 days we'll be gone. Let the cruise begin.

I'll be so glad when this election is over. I'm sick of hearing about it every single day. For the last how many years?

Is it just me or is the world getting crazier and crazier? I don't think it's just me.

On October 13th I'll be sworn in as the secretary of the International Order of the Blue Gavel, Delta District 19. I'll hand over my treasurer duties to the new incoming treasurer.

I met my husband back in the 70s while we were married to other people. He was doing my background investigation for the Sheriff's Department. When he rang our doorbell to ask a few questions I remember thinking, wow does all the men in the Sheriff's Department look this hot. No they didn't, but Zane sure did. I worked for him in the late 80s and early 90s and we both knew we loved each other although that was never said for many more years. We were meant to be.

Everyone have a terrific week ahead.


  1. Zane's a keeper, for sure! I actually think of him every time I uncork a bottle of wine! haha!

    And woohoo to you! 7 pounds... 28 sticks of butter... GONE!

    The world is definitely crazy. ANd I do not believe there is one decent person in our government anymore. At least, none that I am aware of. Y'all. srsly.

    Have a perfect day honey. big hugs xoxo

  2. Some things are worth waiting for eh?

    I no longer trust any politician. It's the way of the world to lie and cheat when you are in a position of power

  3. Have a great cruise. No it's not just you it's me too. I think crazy is the new normal. Nice to hear how you met your hubby

  4. Oh what a neat story on how you and Zane met. That is great.
    I have to agree with everyone else, that the world is crazy right now. It is so scary those two running for President. I am sick of the whole thing too. Have yourselves a terrific cruise.

  5. Waiting for your perfect guy must make the joy of now being together that much more sweet. Enjoy your trip.

  6. how romantic! reminds me of sarge, i knew the first time i laid eyes on him! have fun on your cruise!

    hugs, bee

  7. sweet remembrance of those good ol' days. I liked your silent love which has infinite depth.

  8. I just try not to watch the news, very depressing, neat love story how many years did you wait for him

  9. Dear Sandee, Thank you for sharing your romance. Fairy tales can come true.

    Maybe if politicians were required to be human, it might be a good start.

  18. Election in our country is next year and can't wait for it to be over as early as now. I'm so sick of seeing politicians all over the news :(

    I'm sure you will enjoy your cruise Sandee!!
