In 1942 this handsome Senior boy walked over to my seat in Study Hall and grinned down at me - - then helped himself to half of my seat. During those few minutes that Miss Amy allowed him to sit there , he told me he was dating a girl in Lebanon but was going to break up with her that week-end and wanted to call me. That was December 21st, l942 and our first date was New Year's eve Dec.31. 1942. Today July 15, 2012 and 67 years later I am still just as much in love with his precious heart as when mine stopped that day as I saw him turn up my aisle. The ecstasy may have passed somewhat but it was replaced by something greater, because what was in part became whole. We then spent sixty years in love and raising a loving family.

A few days at Springland and...

Judy showers me with love and fluffs me with pretty...

My vacation this summer - - five days at Springland, with Judy and Louis.  Yes, indeed they fluffed and prettied me all five days.  Louis enjoyed the Braves games with me each day, and Judy kept the flowers from her garden in every room. Her hydrangea bushes have been outstanding. She is enjoying growing Zinnias.  Special things fit for a Queen - - Special baths and showers with a chaperone - -great meals prepared especially for me - -warm chats on the porch late at night - - special treats brought to my bedroom, for the times I wake up and work a puzzle or two. - -special prayer time together at my bedside, prayer for Judy's children and decisions they are making, and prayer for our entire family and church family. Aloha and Aloha! Hello and Goodbye.
