It’s Wednesday again and decided I’d better get a head start as I know I move and do things at snail’s pace.
Got up this morning with more snow, but the sun came out and it’s really been a much nicer day than expected. The past few days have been bitter cold.
I went to the nursing home to see Red. Georgia and I went and he’s really not doing therapy as well as he should be. I kind of got the impression they will be sending him home soon. The occupational therapist seems to think his loss of vision could be a factor.
Have to pick him up Tuesday at 2:30 and bring him home. She will follow in her car to check out what will need to be done for his safety, then take him back.
While we were there we reserved a dining room for Saturday because it’s our 67th anniversary. Richard and Georgia’s family are taking food and a cake. I’m not telling him, but may wish we had.
Had myself a nap then phone started ringing, and I got four calls in just the last bit. Catharine called last and is on her way home. She wanted to know if I needed anything. All I could think of was bread but just a few slices. You get a whole loaf and pretty soon it’s too hard to even make toast.
Lena called from Pound, Va., and her great-grandson Christopher called to just check on me and a couple from church called, such a nice couple. We both loved them before we knew who they were. Fact is, can’t think of any church family member we don’t love.
Haven’t talked to Bill today but did talk twice to Redia. They had to be in Avon, next door from Avon Lake where the nursing home facility is located, so stopped to see Dad.
I sincerely hope the flu bug has gone away. It sure did hit everyone really hard.
Talked to cousin Eva Dale (Stallard) Douglas of Sacramento, Calif., this week. She and her twin daughters are really having a bad time. They recently lost their husband and father, Robert ‘Bob’ Douglas.
Want to thank everyone for all the beautiful cards that we have received. Got a beautiful anniversary card from Otho and Pat Holcomb. Pat makes a delicious plate of fudge. My mouth is almost tasting it now.
Hello to Oma Hatton, Rose Ballard and all other writers. Read each and every column.
By the way, Oma, have you seen or heard anything about my baby sister? She must have gotten lost somewhere along the way as I have heard nary a word from her since I don’t know when.
Jeanie does call every week and I try to call her pretty often. Guess they really had a great time with Calvin, Mary, Carson and Cameron while in Georgia.
Better finish this. Catharine should be showing up real soon. So to all my Sergent and Engle families, good friends and everyone, hope you have a peaceful night, a most happy day and I now send my love and prayers to all.
