Visiting An Old Friend

 We drove up to Spadra today.  Larry went fising with Kenny and Jonell and I sat and gabbed.  I learned about a lot of the people I went to school with.  Sad--several dead--Brenda Gibbs!
Kenny cleaned the fish and we brought 'em home.  Was going to cook a mess, but found my dear friend Syble lost her son and we are going to the visitation.

 Larry bought a skidsteer to clean up the mess at our other house.  I can't wait to get started.  This is small and can fit in small places.  He must be careful as it will tip over if you don't watch what you are doing.

 Jonell and Kenny have a new travel home.  He works part of the year and Jonell goes along to pamper him when he is home.  I was pleased to visit with two folks who still love and care for one another.  Both are kind, gentle hearts.

Greta is Progressing

This is a note from Greta's Speech teacher.  She has mastered the F sound so she can say "friend Fleta" correctly I suppose.  Both Greta and Clayton like school this year and that makes for a happier family.

Scarf For Greta

Greta's birthday gifts on Grandma Powell's quilt.  Grandma made this quilt before she made the one Fleta has I think.  Probably for Winnie when she was about 10 or 12...just guessing.

Thanks for Winnie sharing these heirlooms with Fleta, Helen, and I.  She is very selfless!


 Volleyball ends next weekend.    This was appreciation night.

Ingrid's Essay For English Class

My Dad's hair is lost.   It took a walk off his head and never came back.  My little sister's hair is like a gumball in a machine, you never know what you are going to get.  Each day a new mess is resting on her head.  My mother's flames a top her head.   Hairs lash out in different directions creating a madness of red.  My older sister has passionate hair that blazes like a summer sun.  My hair is silk, spun sugar, and candy. Soft and sweet it flies!  Ingrid

On the Road

 Erin and Greg had a ski boat.  They traded it in on this motor home.  Erin would like to visit many of the National Parks.

Birthday Trip

 Greta's family took a weekend trip to celebrate her birthday.  Good thing the water park is inside as it was rainy and cold outside.

Home Again

 My mums are pretty.  The two ferns I bought in May are really full and pretty but the cold will kill them.  It is just too much trouble to try and keep them until next year.  They make a big mess in the house.

 I am a tight wad I know, but I wanted Clayton's stone to be similar to Richard's and I am glad they fixed it.  I like it much better on the pedestal.
