Went for hikes through the woods and the nearby grove

kayaking at Bass Lake, Michigan

rollar skating and falling down

spraining an ankle

Back cracks at the chiropractor

morning jogs daily

soothing massage chair resides upstairs

running 5k’s

Joined the gym

Awesome spin classes

helping the middle niece get over stage fright

finding her voice

Chris recited more poetry and signed more books

Now he’s writing a new book

both he and Denielle are blogging

and found ways to WRECK A JOURNAL

Zentangle art is amazing

Denny sketched a portrait of her mom and two uncles as children

A girl at work, who drew Starry Night with crayons, gave it to them as a gift

just for being her friend

they made several new friends this year

Yet also said goodbye to companions who moved away

His father’s dog, named Sparky, was laid down to rest

Kahlua, a beautiful Cocker Spaniel was also put to sleep

Her stepfather, Mark

and Grandmother Tillie

both were taken away from them

but certainly will never be forgotten

they had a fight one night in their car

but literally made a U-Turn on the road

and went out to eat

with a $10 coupon….Awesome!

Experienced a 30 days of HAPPINESS challenge

and learned to LAUGH more

and live like children

Took a Spring roadtrip together to Missouri via route 66

and visited an old friend

Chris’ Grandmother Jean turned 90 this year! WOW!

He is famous for making a new breakfast casserole

and together they have brought “nut cluster” candy making to a new level

which made them laugh a lot

Saw films like “The Hobbit,” “Gravity” and “Thor” on the big screen

Went to a lot of concerts this year

Colin Hay gave a live performance for them @ Park West

Japandroids and Savages @ Metro

Lollapalooza @ Grant Park featuring Vampire Weekend, Tegan & Sara and Cat Power

Neko Case @ The Hideout

He bought many vinyl records

One time he bought a small cup of coffee at work

for fifty cents

with a CREDIT CARD???

then he found some quarters at his desk 5 minutes later

this made Chris and others laugh out loud

Isnt it ironic? Don’t ya think?
