Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Cabernet in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

Has Spring Sprung??

 

This week felt like spring was here as we had temps in the 70’s but I know better then to think it’s here, we live in the Midwest and it can snow thru May (1.5 inch 1907) so I guess we won’t put the winter wear away just yet.

since it was so nice I did get something's done around here, like the truck witch was so dirty I hated touching the door handle to get in. Now the weather man is talking about getting ready for all the spring floods coming and showing people getting sand bags filled and ready for the big spring thaw. We have a saying here if you don’t like the weather here in Missouri just wait a hour and it will change.

Friday we spent the day visiting my mom,she turned 85 in December. She has Alzheimer's and has been getting weaker,I think she looks pretty good for 85.

I was off Thursday,Friday and Saturday,I worked today and I’m off Monday for President’s Day holiday.It’s a tough life working for a church. That’s about all the fun around here for this week.

ONE DAY CLOSER TO OUR DREAM

Enjoy the good weather while it lasts. My mother also had Alzheimer's and I know how difficult it is for everyone.

Weather here was nice for a week, now the wind is blowing like mad and the air is thick with dust and dirt. I just wish it would rain and knock it down.
You mom looks great for her age. But I know her condition is hard on the family. I will keep you all in my thoughts

YOur Mom is beautiful. As tomorrow is a Federal/State holiday and Len was a NJ State employee, he would have had the day off. I told him this morning, it's a shame he's not working, he would have been off! lol.
