Look who stopped in for her daily visit.
Maisey had been to the Salon and had pretty little
Christmas bows in her ear hair.She has had Cushing's Syndrome for the last three years and is getting worse. John doesn't think she will make it until Spring, but every time she sees me, she manages to hop up the porch steps to get to me. She and I have a mutual love thing going on.
One nice thing about Face Book--you can renew old friendships. Not exactly a friendship, but a lot of my kids school chums have "friended" me on Face Book. A sister to one of Karen's friends wanted to get together for lunch. We've had to put it off the last two Tuesday's, but managed to meet up Saturday for lunch. At the Golden House Chinese restaurant. Now, I haven't seen this little girl since 1979 and a good thing I had her picture on FB or I would not have recognized her. (I call them kids--he's 54 and she's 53.)
I got there a bit early and waited inside. She came in a few minutes later and right behind her was her brother, Karen's classmate and the kid that came to visit me last spring. We had a good conversation and food, for about an hour, then went out into my car, so they could smoke and yakked for another 90 minutes.
These kids were from a very poor family, with an alcoholic father, that lived just up the road from us. Both of them took 4-H gun safety, taught by my Daddy and Harold,, the brother, also played 4-H softball for us. Of course they both have very fond memories and much love for my father.
Just another example of how he loved the kids he taught and they loved him and how he treated those kids far better than anyone in his own family.
I love how the "G" is covered up and it says, "Olden House" right next to my olden head!!!
This morning I woke up with terrible stomach problems! I don't know if it was the Chinese food that started it, but I did throw my left-overs in the garbage.
I've felt punk all day. Tired, noisy tummy, nauseous--let's just say, if I had a Colonoscopy scheduled for tomorrow morning, I would not have had to do the prep!!!
We have set record temps for the last two days. December 13th--in Michigan--and 62 degrees?
