Note:

Don’t forget about the Carrot Ranch Rodeo #3 Contest this week. You have almost 5 more days. Midnight Monday PDT (Pacific Daylight Time).

We are in the 3-week countdown to closing on our house and moving to Arizona. But no worries, I’m checking my website feedback daily for new entries. However, I’m taking a break for a week from blogging other than reblogging Abigail’s articles.

You can also enter by email at MarshaAlwaysWrite@tchistorygal.net. The form on the website does not format your entry or let you highlight the words from “Git Along Little Dogies.”

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.
