For her dedication and hard work for neglected and abused kids in our community

and as one would figure I feel asleep in the chair the first hour
into the discussion
around 11 pm
nothing new there :)
we attended the event honoring this awesome woman

So, after lunch, needless to say,
my sweet friend Shan was a bit tired
we decided to forgo a little shopping
and head back home for a little nap
because that's what old people do
we kidded to ourselves.
After some rest, we were on the road
