"Whenever I look at our newly remodeled bathroom with the fish hanging, it reminds me of our shopping time at the Bagnall Dam Strip and the Artsy Fartsy store. I love the fish and the time that I did get to spend with Gary's family here at our lakehouse."
"When I was a little girl, I used to get in so much trouble. She used to cut the balls off the pattle ball things and keep them as a paddle for me. When she would come after me, I would run into the corner."
"In 2007 Doris, Tonya (Daughter), Me Ryan(Godchild) and Keanu all went to South Dakota. We stayed at a hotel. Kea threw a water ball at Ryan. He got mad and they got into a fight. They almost got us kicked out of the hotel. Doris made them sit down and behave. She was so mad."
