Hello Doris. Thinking of you so thought I would drop in and say hello. I have had 3 good nights of sleep. I pray it continues. I am still going to see the sleep doctor on the 28. We had a wicked thunderstorm last night. Lot of flooding in the city. How is Ken? Hope he is doing well. Take good care of yourself. HUGS,Reed

Hi Doris,one of my many New Year's Resolutions is to get off the computer so much.Every year it seems I have my list ready and we know how that goes,ha ! That bad weather that came thu about a week ago got hold of our roof and did damage.Then we got a leak that has turned into a full blown broken pipe.Water everywhere least it is out doors.Still to think what these 2 things will cost to fix,goodness.Going to get estimates and see next week..We are all going for flu shots tomorrow.Been deaths in town and it has everyone shaken.So sad for the families and their loss..take care friend ..

Hi Doris !! I love that you still have Thanksgiving at your g'mothers.How blessed you all are...My question for you is ..Is it cold enough for you ?,ha ! Our pilot light won't stay lit so we can't use our central heat.We have an old fireplace gas heater and it is helping.We also have borrowed an little electric heater from our daughter. She bought it about 2 yrs back when she needed one..That little thing is great ! It will heat one room.It rotates and blows out heat ! We called out guy that we have used before,to come look at our heat.He was not answering or calling back.Then my husband found out why-his house burned down and they lost everything -what a sad thing.....ok kid,keep warm and send a holler my way :)
