Did you miss me while I was gone? Looked like I had quite a few hits while I was away. Our family just spent a week and a half on vacation visiting family out of state. While at my mother’s, I did more digging in the photos and ephemera that are in boxes and found some more information. Then we were in Missouri for my in-laws’ 60th wedding anniversary celebration (a month early). It was wonderful to finally meet one of the granddaughters-in-law and three of the great-grandchildren as well as the daughter of one of a grandson’s fiancee’. The in-laws have lots of land and the kids got to fish in both of their ponds, see interesting wildlife they don’t usually see, and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine in a slightly cooler environment than our normal 100 degree temps here in North Texas. There was much food consumed (read that as A LOT!), many dishes washed and dried, many loads of laundry washed, dried, folded and put away, and lots of hugs and laughs.
I have some updates for a couple of the posts I’ve previously written so I will be getting to those as soon as I can. Today though – it’s back to the real world which includes work, grocery shopping, bookkeeping and doing laundry!
Thanks for not forgetting me while I was gone!
