Manny Here

Dear Friends,

I am writing for Mom this morning cause she has her nose in her book all the time.

TC at work2

I’ve been making some resolutions as I sit here on my travel blanket and have all my gear around me.

Manny studies his options
  1. I want to go somewhere else.  Mom wants me to write my own blog, but that’s her resolution.  Do your parents make resolutions for you?
  2. I am going to resolve not to get so mad at her for making resolutions for me.  After all she did send me all over the world with her friends.  I can’t complain or you will all revolt instead of resolve.
  3. I’m going to have more fun in 2014 without landing on my face doing it!

What are your resolutions for 2014?

M & J landed

P.S. This was Justin and me in Frankfurt.  It was a blast!  I love Mom for letting me go.  Thanks, Carol and Glenn, and of course, my friend, Justin.  🙂

    • Thank you Justin. How are you doing? Must be boring with your mom going back to school, and leaving you at home. I am SO bored. However, I’m going to Oklahoma soon. I can’t wait!


    • Thank you Hot Rod Cowgirl, Marsha. I appreciate it so much. I’ve missed you recently. My bad. I haven’t been around nearly as much as I would like to be. Hope you have had a wonderful holiday. 🙂


      • Hi the other Marsha:) I have missed you too! I have missed out some too as I have been sidetracked with the business office and I am taking a business class….but I love to yak and blogging helps…WB likes me to blog too so I don’t bug him:) I hope your back is better and also that 2014 will be a happy happy new years for you:)


    • You are imposing a resolution on me, RoSy. You must be a grown up! tee hee 🙂 You have fun, RoSy. My mom really likes you, so you must be a nice lady! 🙂


  1. Hi Manny,
    It must be great to be back home with Mom & Dad. I expect you have told them about your adventures 100 times. That slide looked really dangerous…you are brave…..or did you push Justin ?…. and you both slipped !!
    I am looking forward to visiting your blog. I want to see lots of pictures as I can’t read really 😉 Can you read now ?
    Fanny & Stanley, Samantha & Sonic send their love. xox


  2. Manny, I remember when you and Justin Beaver went up that slide. I thought you were too little to go by yourselves but you did it anyway! It was funny when you both landed in the sand. You can do anything…even write a blog!





Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
