Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

There'll Be a "Gran" Time in the Old Town Tonight!!!


One day, not so very long ago, three darlin' little Hoosier grans loaded up their worldly possessions, climbed into their car seats, and headed off to the wild blue yonder of 'Consin - - - for a WEEK of vacation.

They condescended to let their momma and daddy come along.

Oh what a "gran" time they had in 'Consin, which to THEM means Kamma and Papoo's house. Here's a little peek into what they did:

They spent one afternoon at the Zoo. Mackinley and Kaeleigh enjoyed it - - - Piper fell in love.

With a turtle.

A painted turtle.

She wanted to take her new friend home.

Kamma and Momma were mean and said, "no!"

One day they went to the cheese factory. They got to see big vats of cheese curds being separated from the whey.

Momma and Daddy gobbled down some waxy, squeaky, salty curds. Kaeliegh liked them too - - - a little bit - - - and Piper LOVED them the first time she had them. Mackinley preferred to get HIS dairy in the form of ice cream.

Kamma and Momma snuck away one morning for a little "girl" time getting their nails "done" by Andy who has serious nail skilz!

HEY - - - wait a minute!!! Piper and Kaeleigh are girls too, why didn't THEY get their nails "done?"

One favorite 'Consin treat was going to the Dollar Tree, with a dollar in hand, to get a toy. Little Miss Piper can barely see over the counter as she hands up her money.

Mackinley is an "old hand" at this toy buyin' stuff.

And Miss Kaeleigh is ever prim and proper.

Finally came a day that Papoo didn't have to go to work! So, the grans talked him into taking them boating.

Kaeleigh made quite the figure head as they slowly glided toward shore.

Don't forget - - - momma and Daddy were in 'Consin too.

At the lake daddy sported a towel to protect his shiny head from those nasty UV-rays.

Kamma looks like she needs to expose her white legs to some UV rays from time to time.

At the beach, all the sittin' in the sun, buildin' sand castles, and paddling in the water made the grans - - -


After a quick drink from their new color-coded water bottles,

They were back on the beach - - -

Splashing, digging,

Floatin' and smilin'.

Way too soon it was time to go back to Kamma's, take a bath, and get ready for bed.

Smiles all around.

I loved going to a cheese factory when we were in Wisconsin a few years back (try 20). The curds were so good! =Looks like you had a fantastic time with those kiddos!
