Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

Our life is so exciting you can tell by the look on our grand daughter  Savannah’s face Max and Annie as they watch a movie.



My weekend started  out with going and checking out two nursing homes for my mother, her Alzheimer’s is progressing and is about stage 3. So where not sure how long we can keep her at home with my brother and sister in law.

Our twin 8 year old grandkids came over Friday to spend the weekend. Two kids and three dogs can sure change the Pease and quit around the house,it’s like having five kids.

I spend a lot of time in the garage checking the oil and air in truck,and making sure the beer stays cold in the refrigerator.

Saturday we took them on a little road trip to Bonner Springs,Ks to Moon Marble Company.


That's right they make marbles

It’s gotten so boring that we went to watch them make marbles. We watched a guy make a $50 dollar marble,sure would hate to loose that in a marble game.



Yes they even have a Museum in the restroom.I don’t usually take a camera into the bathroom with me but hey it was a museum.    


This is some of the things on wall in the small restroom. I was so amazed I forgot why I was in there.  



When you leave you can sign you name on the wall outside



The kids Savannah and Riley :))

Saw them on the TV show "How it's made." I love factory tours!

Chuck and Anneke's RV travels said...

It just proves that if you look hard enough, there is always something interesting to see, even if it is marbles.

You sure have a special garage!! :-)
Interesting trip to the Moon Marble Company. I have never seen a museum in a restroom before. Now that is unique.

Can I come and just live in your garage??It sounds better than my house! I promise I won't make a sound...Our garage stinks like gasoline, has oil spots on the floor and a log splitter made from a garbage truck hydrolics parked in the back..I'll even bring my own wine!!!
