How time does fly when you are having fun. 

Fun- what exactly does constitute as fun? Some say as long as you are enjoying the day you are having fun. Others say you have to be *doing something* in order to be having fun. Or some say it in such a manner as to mean it in a disparaging way.  
I, myself see it as many different ways. 

Over the time period of my absence I have had fun in many ways. 
I've spent time with my grand kids. Spent time with new people I've met. Went to new places.  And even did new things. 
By that I mean we went on a River Cruise, which was really FUN. 
Went on motorcycle rides and visited places I didn't know existed. Such as the Mini Mac (Mackinaw Bridge).
And one of only 2 of the smallest Post Office's in the United States. This one in Michigan, the other one is in Florida. 

As for the other kind of FUN- we have had 2 fur babies die in the last 2 years.
This little lady-Punkin, who we thought would make it after we had her left leg amputated to keep the tumors from spreading. But no such luck. She was 14 when we had to make the decision to let her go home to god. 
Then this sweet boy- Manny, who was to go in for knee surgery in 3 days but came up with a cough that just wouldn't go away so we took him to emergency. She did many tests only to find out he was having heart problems that couldn't be fixed. He was only 8 years old when we had to say goodbye to him that day. Another one of the hardest decisions we ever had to make. 
Onto happier things- 
My son has moved back near us from out west. So we get to see him more often. 

Our granddaughter is graduating this year. 
Boy they sure do grow up so fast. Her brother is 2 years behind her. 

Can't wait to see how much fun I can find for the following year.
