  • Rich Rumple - Cool post! I’m torn between kids and cats in this one, though, as when the kids are gone, the cats become the kids. lol I guess it applies to both of them. Must have treated the cats too good though … can’t get them to leave! Great post!ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - Hey there Rich! Nice to see you here! And, your right, our little furry butts have replaced the kids- in the house at least, so instead of Ben obsessing over when the kids would come in at night, he now calls the cats for bedtime- with a bell. ANd THEY COME! LOLReplyCancel

     Once upon a time, in the faraway land of Northeast Ohio, lived a young girl who spent all of her free hours (those without young boys on her mind, that is) within the magical world of fashion magazines.      Everyone was beautiful, and carefree, and rich. The women between the covers looked so […]
