Great Thanksgiving

Yesterday was a very good day. I was fortunate to have two of my children for Thanksgiving dinner. It was a peaceful, pleasant day, and I learned how to post pictures. Maybe I can get some more on in the future.

Today wasn't a day to go out anywhere so I decided to sew and spent the day making a poncho for Michelle.

Just as I finishing up I got a surprise call from Albuquerque my friend of 30 years just passed away. We have been out of touch for several years, her daughter thought I was a bad influence on her and didn't want us to keep in touch. I have felt bad about it a lot of the time but I couldn't fight both of her daughters.

Jean and I shared alot of our life. Getting kids though school. Getting kids married and having grandkids. Traveling in later years, our first cruise together. Jean could always make us laugh about something, she kept a lot of troubled times light. We always thought we would sometime live together. I knew she was living with alzheimers in the last few years, the same as I am living with alzheimers. Hubbys alzheimers doesn't act like what they discribe in all the books. Hubby is very quiet and sleepy most of the time. He was just happy to sit and watch every thing happen yesterday. I hated to have to tell him about Jean. Jean spent so much time traveling with us and living in the travel trailer. We have been so isolated here in east Texas that even old friends seem a great loss.

Linda's going to call and send flowers tomorrow. I know how much this must hurt. You have our sympathies.
B & G took today to drive home in the teeth of this storm. No rain or snow, but forty to sixty mile winds with a sharp drop in temperature.
