Hello reed, Have sent some messages & cards. Hope you have gotten them. I'm not here much. Life has been crazy here. The end of 2014 was tough with both of us having surgeries. All the snow, miss the kids, my Mom just fell & really smashed her hand. She fell carrying a plate & glass. Cut her hand needing 18 stitches to repair, just missed the arteries. Fractured hand to be repaired Thursday. Needs a plate and pins. Guess I'll be staying with her for a bit. My brother may come in to help as I need to go to work. Easter will be here & everyone is coming home, finally, thank goodness. Can't wait for Spring. My front yard still has snow.I hope you are doing better. I see Russ is not. You both remain in my prayers as do all my TuD friends. My good friend Letecia Renteria from here is in the hospital now for Emergency surgery. Lots of people to pray for. Stay well. <3 <3 This is just 2 weeks ago. Samantha will soon be 6 and Nathan is almost 2.

I pray every single day for an answer for you. we are getting 4 - 6 inches of snow today. Happy Spring! bg 125 yay.

Hi Reedster. No, I also cannot believe that Russ is not a candidate for the nursing home. Are you sure the doctor is aware of his current living situation.
So sorry about Chico getting into a fight, but glad you have him for company.
I have quit the fiddle lessons for now. I needed a break and the teacher kept yawning and was just going through the motions. SO I am now doing guitar, which I have dabbled with for several years. I found a place online called "The Hollywood Rock School" and the teacher and I had a long talk over the phone. I asked if he taught old ladies and he said he currently had two students over 55. So, we shall see.
64 degrees right now and the streets are mobbed with people enjoying the weather.
I went to our local db meet up this morning. I am the one in pink, second from the front on the right side. A nice time.

So sorry. Hope your journey is a peaceful one. For 88 you are doing great. Good luck and keep up the good work.
