Ha! I love to laugh at...

...just about everything!  Yes - here is another bunny trail...

We weren't married very long when I completely lost it (aka: laughing uncontrollably - like, I couldn't stop if I tried!) while watching some inane TV show.  My husband looked over at me with a confused (and bemused) look that showed me he was, in effect, thinking, "Who ARE you?  Who did I marry?  WHAT IS SO FUNNY????"  I'll admit it - I really couldn't tell him exactly what set me off, but 23 years later I did it again (that means it was just last week...).  And do you know what it was this time?  A birthday card for my mom.  Yes, you read that right - IT WAS FOR MY MOTHER!!  I'm a horrible daughter - I get my mom the goofiest cards - not a lot of sap in here - sorry!!  :-)  I literally laughed uncontrollably AGAIN not only while I was in the store but as I stood in line to purchase the card and as I got into the car where, yes, my husband was waiting for me...It happens, folks....  :-)

One more bunny trail:  Check out the Daily Puppy (below right) - how CUTE is that??!!  I love getting an RDA of puppies!!

On to ozzer itemz...(a leetle French pops out once in to love Paris!  but that's for another post...)

I have digressed long enough from Jackson, WY that I MUST at least go back and mention the Amangani resort where we got to enjoy a few (very) precious nights.  Warning:  This will not make your budget list.  But we stumbled upon it in Jackson and decided to make the stay a birthday/anniversary gift to each other this year.  Save up and go stay, even for a night!  I promise it's worth it.   Most of the Aman resorts are in Indonesia but we have 2 in the States: Wyoming and Utah.  'Nuf said.

I think I said I'd post more about our trip (yes, a few posts ago...).  So, after mentioning Utah a few times, I must say that Bryce and Zion were amazing!  Two completely different parks but awesome, nonetheless!  Pack the bus, take the kids and watch them wear themselves out running up those (steep) trails!  (Watch the dropoffs...)  Then sleep well at night  :-)

Here are a few more pics of what's in store for you:

Moon over Sedona, AZ

Sculpture in Sedona

Sunset in New Mexico (from the car!)

Moon over NM, from the car too!

Oops - OK - I put in a few I took from the car - but the moon and sunset were too good to let pass by!

Nighty night for now - have a beautiful 4th and I'll see you on the flip side of mid-July (work calls for a few weeks...)  

Cheers and happy days!  VG

Ephesians 2:4-5
But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 


  1. I love the pictures. Jimmy and I have talked about (eventually) taking a road trip to the National parks out west, and now I think it is a must! I can't wait.

  2. You are an excellent photographer Joy! Love it!
