Welcome to my page

This is a picture of the Naperville Riverwalk in the fall of 2008 on a early Sunday morning. I love to walk along the Dupage River early morning and even in the Winter. Just up around the bend is a bridge with rapids running underneath it - you can listen to the water - very nice.

Does mymare refer only to the name Mary or could there possibly be a mare that's a horse in your life??? Good luck on setting up your page. There is definitely lots to be learned here on this site. Please stop by & see me on my page someday. Welcome to our world. Enjoy!!

Hi Mary! Thanks for visiting my page. I'm trying to make my way around everyone's pages. It's really nice meeting new people and talking to everyone! Is your son doing a summer session at college?

I generally use andouille (ahn-du-ee)unless a friend has brought me some fresh deer sausage...certainly wouldn't pass that

What your friend gave you was probably some andouille...we have some awesome meat packers/sausage makers down here. In fact it seems More...

Hello Mary! It was nice of you to drop in for a visit. I must apologize, as I thought I had already welcomed you to your page, but I see I didn't. I'll leave my traditional double chocolate fudge beavertail pastry for you to enjoy, and a small bottle of Canadian maple syrup. Cheers!
29/May/07 7:00 AM
Thanks for dropping by Mary. I'm glad you enjoyed the happy little song. Those two entertainers brightened many a sad heart while they were alive. Unfortunately, time marches on.

Hi Mymare, Just dropped by to look over the fence at Lizzie. I am sure she is a wonderful dog. ANyway, thanks for stopping by my page. Feel free to stop any morning about 9 for coffee and maybe a molasses cookie.

Hi Mary, and so nice to have you stop by for a visit. Arthur continues to do well and keep us entertained as do our other two cats. We've been busy gardening, having a street sale (never again!) and are on some crazy social whirl this week--why does everything happen at once? So, like you, I got sustenance from a slice of key lime pie. That Cyndi can sure bake! Have a great day!
30/May/07 3:19 AM
Hi Mary, I just wanted to stop by quick and thank you for visiting. I'm pretty well settled in and enjoy the visits. Hope you stop by again some time soon.
30/May/07 10:44 AM

Hi, Mary! Thanks for stopping by. Coastal Georgia is lovely though most folks traveling through on I-95 don't even realize we're here! I used to live in Illinois. I was born in Oak Park, grew up in Crystal Lake and then worked and lived in Chicago for several years before moving East.

Hi Mary! Thanks for stopping by my page. We, too, are winding down at school. Finals this week and next. My senior graduates next week!

Mary - thanks for dropping in a couple of days ago! Wil graduated in three years with a degree in physics. He has moved back home for a year to get some job experience (he started today on a 90-day trial job doing some very challenging programming - if that doesn't work out there are some other More...

Hey Mary, Thank you for stopping by by page. I am so glad I'm not the only one who is new at this! My time is quite limited and I get so frustrated when I struggle!! Anyway, I wish you well and leave some lovely protea flowers and a cold bottle of Boschendal Chardonnay from South Africa!

Hello Mary - I thought I had visited your page but I can't see my calling card anywhere. I haven't been on the site too much lately so have some visiting to catch up on.
Thanks for visiting my place recently. I hope you enjoyed your visit. Call again when you've got time and we'll share a bottle of our local Goundry Unwooded Chardonnay.

Hi Mary. Welcome to Sudoku Land. I'm SURE you'll enjoy.

This is a smilie that you can use now - but not in a few weeks when you've become one of the crowd

03/Jun/07 9:24 PM
It Seems as if I'm not alone in thinking I had been here before now to wish you a very warm , only to find out I hadn't! Although I'm late I'm sure glad you are here and hope you enjoy being here as much as we do. You have plenty of company being challenged with all there is More...

For your quick response and very interest information I had requested.
Have a nice Day.
04/Jun/07 8:20 PM
Gday Mymare, to be honest, the reason I loved school holidays the most was because I didn't have to get up early and try to drag 4 very reluctant children out of bed. Funny thing is it seemed to be easier when I was working full time, they had no choice but do it to a schedule, now that I'm back to being an 'at home' mum we can never get to school on time! Go figure???

Hi Mary,
Pretzel city is the nickname for Freeport, IL. It is the mascot for the high school team 'Pretzels'. One of a kind. We are 20 miles south of Monroe Wisconsin and 22 miles west of Rockford. Hunkering down for a storm tonight. Getting windy here already. Have a good day

I'm not so show how Elijah would feel about looking for cicadas. He's not much of a bug person. I sent him out with a can to collect bugs in and he came back with one ant.

Hi Mary
Thanks for dropping in for a visit.
I hope you get a chance to see Tassie and the 'North Island' as I heard some Tasmanians refer to the mainland. It's such a diverse country with surprises at every turn.
Be careful with the treadmill antics, they can be scarey!! (Just watch funniest home videos!)

Hi Mary. don't think i've visited your page yet, here's some flowers and bubbly just for fun.
