3. Happy Wedding Day to Elle and Jack!!
My cousin’s daughter (Elle) is marrying her sweetheart (Jack) today! Elle is my namesake and an amazing young woman! I wish we could’ve attended the happy nuptials, but unfortunately, we couldn’t. We’re there in spirit, though! And take a look at their wedding website!! Congratulations to two amazing people! We wish you the most wonderful wedding day and a lifetime of love and joy!

4. The Twilight Zone
One of my favorite classic TV shows is The Twilight Zone. One of my sons bought me Season 1 for my birthday and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying it (I’ve been watching episodes while on the elliptical). This was a show that was ahead of its time in many respects…from the unusual and creepy opening music, to the relevant topics and brilliant writing. It was also a favorite of my father’s and we often watched the show together when it first aired.TZ1

5. Ellen Lane Street Sign
Remember last year at this time? My husband had a run in with the law trying to take a photo of this sign. I asked and, like the dutiful husband he is, he obliged. Read all about it here.

  1. Yikes! Ellen, Twilight Zone always gave me nightmares. Good for you and Erin being able to watch it. My brother watched it. This was back when homes had one television, although my home only has 2 televisions and 7 people. Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday, my dear. I always love your husband’s cartoons. ~Victoria Marie Lees
