I sure hope everyone had a fantastic week. It’s not been so good here as Red and I are both on the puny list. It seems we spend most of our time seeing our doctor. It seems as though old age finally caught up with the years and mileage. Oh well, that’s life.
I want to say thank you to Lena Stallard of Pound, Va., and Carleta and Creighton Adams of Eolia, for coming up and spending a few days with us and for all they did, like shopping, cooking and everything else they did. While thanking everyone, I have to include Bill and Redia, Catharine, Richard and Georgia, Rick and Joyce and Debbie. I couldn’t make it without your help and support.
Rick goes above and beyond. He takes us to doctor’s appointments, makes sure we have our medicine and anything else we need. All make sure we have food as I really can’t cook right now. Our love to all of you!
My grandson David was home, and came by and spent time with us, bringing Christmas gifts, a comfy, cozy, colorful throw, a set of Faith Hill perfume, shower gel and body lotion, and an apple orchard candle jar for me.
I have been sleeping under the throw, and can smell the candle but haven’t yet used Faith Hill set. I know it won’t make me look any better but I sure will smell good. He brought his papaw a set of Western movies, monogrammed hankies and a change jar that keeps count. Thank you and we do love you, David.
Jeanie called and said she was going home. I am so glad for her and really needed to hear some good news for a change. Chester is still in Cleveland Clinic but may be going to a rehab facility. Jettie was going to Cleveland and said she would call me when she got home.
Bill came by this morning to take his dad to the bank and he picked us up a new television. Our old one had sound but no picture. He got it all set up for us.
I want to apologize to all I didn’t get Christmas cards to and the thank you letters I need to write. Maybe in a few days I can do so. It has taken me since morning to get this much written. Catharine can edit for me.
Jettie called and said that Chester was to be moved to Abbywood, a skilled nursing facility close to where they live.
Richard and Georgia stopped by. She is on a medication that could affect her eyes and she had been to get her first check-up.
Red’s niece, Frances Howard of Lexington, called and said her mom, Nina, was doing fair. Northeast Ohio
Hello to Floyd Meade in Orange, Tex. Red really enjoyed talking with you and I want to thank you for taking time to call. I hope all is well with you and yours.
I’m not thinking too well, so I will stop for this time. I’m sorry for the jumbled mess this has to be, but I am feeling some better so may be myself next time.
Be happy, stay well and look for me being me next time.
