Who Do You See?

Have you ever had someone draw a caricature picture of you? Usually at tourist traps or carnivals, you can pay an artist to do this.

Merry Christmas!

Hmmm.   It’s been a while since I’ve posted!  I was enjoying posting regularly (and having a regular readership  . . anyone left out there??).  Doing lots of “Mr. Mom” time along with work/ministry and life has kept me busy, and I guess blogging wasn’t high enough on the priority list.  Anyhow, time to refresh the … Continue reading
