Do You Know This Man

A couple of years ago, two beautiful young ladies went for a walk on a warm Feb. day and never returned home. Libby German and Abby Williams from Delphi, IN were dropped off by Libby's sister to walk the Monon High Bridge Trail and were to meet their ride home a few hours later, but never returned for that meeting and never returned home alive. Both girls were found murdered  the following day near the trail.

I firmly believe that they knew they were in trouble as Libby recorded a man walking on the bridge as well as audio recording of him talking and telling them to go "down the hill". Cell phone pictures and video have aided police in the investigation, but have not led to the killer yet. Someone knows this person and someone knows what happened to these two young ladies and a killer still walks free!

April 20, 2019 Indiana State Police released a new sketch of the person they are searching for. This sketch is very different from the one released a couple of years ago and so please take a look at this photo.
Do you recognize him? Does it look at all familiar? Please help police locate this male subject that took two innocent young girls and brutally murdered them. They deserve justice! 
Here is the photo that was first shared by the police and it is on Abby's phone so take a look at this one as well. The police are saying that the new photo is the correct male that they are looking for, but I say either sketch should be investigated.
Look at the mannerism in the way that he holds his hands in his pockets and other things in order to help recognize him. 

Here is a link to the story of the new information. Please take a look at it and see if you recognize this person. Please call Indiana State Police if you do.

Mothers Day Gift Ideas

* This post may contain affiliate links for items I have found on Amazon or other sites that I believe will make nice gifts for any mom.

Mother's Day is just around the corner, two weeks to be exact and if you have not finished shopping, I am here to help you. Each of these are geared towards moms of all ages and items that could be useful but would be special for mom.

Mothers have always wanted items that would decorate their home or be useful, but items like household cleaning items are not appreciated. I first, would like to suggest Sprinkles from
Pink Zebra. Pink Zebra offers a soy wax blend of home fragrances that are both pet and kid safe. If they are accidentally ingested, the child or pet will not suffer from it. Pink Zebra also offers home décor items as well. Make mom's home smell good this year by purchasing some Pink Zebra today.
Another great gift for mom for her special day is jewelry. I found this generational necklace that I believe would be a wonderful gift for her if she is a grandma and if not, a great option is this mother daughter necklace. Both of these are sterling silver  and will make mom realize just how much you love her. 

All moms would like to have a little more time to themselves so a great option for mom would be these bath bombs. Rosevale bath bombs are natural vegan and homemade and will turn her bath time into a spa time by adding a moisturizer to her skin as well as having her smell wonderful and feel better. Mom will be more stress free if she spends time enjoying these without the children interrupting her. Rosedale Bath Bombs would make your mom, sister, or best friend a nice gift as well. 

Chocolate is always a great choice at our house. Chocolate is good for the soul as far as I am concerned. Who can resist chocolate covered strawberries? Love Berries offer
12 fresh strawberries  lavishly hand-dipped in premium dark, milk and pink-tinted white chocolate, and decorated with chocolate drizzle and heart sprinkles.
  • Freshness and premium quality are 100% guaranteed. Made to order and shipped overnight with ice in our signature gift box to ensure perfect arrival.

These are just a few of the amazing products that you can get and allow mom a nice gift especially for her! 

* Any money made from these sales will be given to a local woman's shelter that I have decided to sponsor for the month of May. I can send you receipt of my donation if you want.

Mountains, Rains, and Family

I am writing this blog post from a hotel business center in Tennessee. My daughter and I as well as the grand doll made a trip to this area to visit ailing family as well as to see some family that I realize that I don't see often enough. Isn't it sad how much time we will allow to go by before we see family? Isn't it sad that family doesn't mean the same that it did 35 years ago? Has long has it been since you seen aunts, uncles, cousins, etc?

I visited my aunt that is in a nursing home now due to her dementia. I also visited an uncle that is currently in a rehab facility due to a broken hip. Both are doing well except for the problems that they are dealing with and age. Age has such a way of creeping up on someone and stealing so much life from them. As my uncle and I talked yesterday, I began to think that I am only 20 years younger than him and how sad that I may only have that many good years left. I need to do things a little different. I need to travel more and do more with the family that I see and I need to make an effort to see those that I love and do not take time to see.

The mountains are beautiful and I wish I lived here again. I miss them so much! I set yesterday in between rain showers and just studied the natural beauty that abounds here and think that the ones who live here probably never realize just how lucky they are to awake here daily and see them.

The weather was a little scary here yesterday as it got really dark and the sky looked omnious for a few minutes and forecast was for storms to move in, but we dodged those bullets. Thank God!

Well, it is a long drive home so I better get off here and get the rest of the bunch up. Have a great week!

Until we meet again, may your trail be blessed and your ride be smooth

Hello again everyone! I have decided that I will attempt to write a short post and let you know that my mother in law is now in a long term facility, which she is not happy with. However, we felt it was the best choice. It's a nice facility with good staff and plenty of activities if she would just accept that she is there for now.

The grand doll is doing well and continues to heal. There is some swelling in her left leg and I am not sure why. It is making it sore and she complains with it. Our family doctor recommended ice packs twice a day and wants warm vitamin E oil massaged into it for the scars. She says it will keep it from being so scarred.

My dear husband seems to have a cough that won't go away and so he is going to the doctor today for that and hopefully, does not have pneumonia. I am supposed to leave today to visit my aunt in Tennessee but if he is hospitalized, that won't happen. He is a smoker and she told him the last visit that he needs to quit as his lungs sound bad. He is stubborn, but this might be his time to stop.

It is raining hard here and just began as I am writing this. I could hear the hard rain coming as I sat here. It is an eerie sound when I can hear it coming through the woods as it enters the valley behind the house.  I am thankful that we did not get severe storms overnight as was projected. I do not care for spring storms in our state as they can be horrible.

Well, I better run for now. Lots to do before the home hustle and bustle begins. The poor grand doll has gone to the actual babysitter for almost two weeks now and it makes me sad, but I just need to get things done. Hopefully, I will be visiting the mountains by later this evening and if so, I will be back early next week to give updates.

Until we meet again may your trail be blessed and your ride be smooth

Mother's Day

 Mother's Day can be such a beautiful day for many people, but I always think of the moms that have suffered losses of children, either ...
