THIS IS LIFE!

    Last weekend my mom, brother and I took a drive through some deep countryside, a journey that my late brother Sutcliffe took so many times in his life. It wasn't a long journey but as I looked at 2 of the pictures that I took these words crossed my mind - "Life is certainly filled with clouds and sunshine."

Hi Judy, your pictures look just like my backyard. I want to thank you for viewing my blog. I am not a twin, but my sister and I have birthday one year part minus a day and have been teased all our lives that we were the only twin in the family. We did grow up having the same hairstyle and wearing same styled dresses and believe me when I say I believe her to be my soul mate. I do not know what I would do if I loose her. So I do sympathise with your loss.

Thanks Cher! It certainly helped me to feel some amount of peace within. Take care and have a good day.

Hi Clairejustine,
I spent some of the day in the tourist resort of Ocho Rios but was so disappointed that I did not get to meet one of Janine's pen-pals who stopped by on a cruise.

Hi there Maria!
It was indeed a memorable drive especially as it was one that I had not taken in a very long time. The whole way I was thinking about my brother who drove that way so many times. In the midst of it all I tried to be strong and my mom, brother and I stopped by and took pictures and spoke to a number of persons. I am keeping the faith and fighting on. This weekend I will be writing, reading and listening to music!:)Have yourself a great weekend. Lots of Love & Friendship always.
