    I read about one extreme minimalist who is a technology mogul. He spends part of his time on the east coast and part of his time on the west coast. He owns fifteen items and doesn't have a permanent address. Another extreme minimalist was a manager for Hewlitt Packard, and retired when he was 40. He had been in a monastery at one point, so he was used to having very few, if any, possessions. He owns a condo, but not much else. The minimalists who aren't extreme own about a hundred items. Some count all of their their clothes as one item, and all of their books as another item. Some minimalists post pictures of all of their items. Also, I've been to book sales at the library, where a bag of (outdated) books costs a dollar. I no longer go to book sales at the library.

    30 years ago our area experienced one of the wettest Springs on record. I think there were 8 weekends or so of straight rain. So, when we married it was raining cats and dogs. Today hubby and I celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We've weathered some tough times but there has been lots of love and laughter along the way. We have been blessed with 2 wonderful sons. Here are then and almost now (2 yrs ago) photos.
