I Have a Question



I have a question…  Why don’t we have these kind of chips in the South?

Try these chips!  Your mouth will thank you!

Try these chips! Your mouth will thank you!

I found these “All Dressed”  chips at a little store in Cascade Locks, Oregon last summer.  They went with me on a two hour cruise down the Columbia River — well — actually they didn’t last two hours.  They were yummy! They have all the flavors mixed together.  Doesn’t sound great but it is.  So, if you get a chance to try these – go ahead – take the dare – they are quite delicious.  And – please – if you know of anywhere down in Texas I can purchase these chips…I’d love to hear about it. :)

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”  James 1:17

Storms and Hail!


Stormy weather! Weather in Washington in June can be very unpredictable – bright cheerful blue skies or really really dark threatening grey skies…

Washington is known for lots of rain — and it showed up in June — Dark blue skies proclaimed the coming rain.  If this had been in Texas, I would have been bracing for a tornado any second!   The dark blue skies yielded to grey skies which produced hail and rain.
