Good morning everyone. Today is another day of sunshine. What a beautiful morning. My granddaughter's wedding is just a few days away. I have a back up minister if my surgery doesn't go well. So pray for me that all goes as planned and the wedding comes off without a hitch. Looking forward to better days ahead. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them

Good morning everyone. I have a wedding coming up this weekend, Hope I will be able to see to do it. Where is Spring? it's still cold here and the nights are still in the 30's.

At least we are bit freezing at night, I am ready for some warm weather. I hope all is well with everyone. I remember the spring of 1964, I had so many things to look forward to. It was a new beginning for me in many areas. We were expecting a new baby in November. It was the beginning of the new season for NASCAE. And I was looking forward to going back to school for and advanced course in automotive engineering. It was a fun filled year with lots of new learning curves.

I am now past those years and can't remember what it was I was supposed to learn. All I remember is the school was difficult I was able to apply what I was learning in school to put to practical use in the filed. TDC was a term I remember. Top Dead center. The torque of a main bearing on a 390 engine is 105 pounds. Timing was set at 8 degrees unless you wanted better performance then we set it at 12 degrees as long as you didn't get spark knock or pre-ignition which would burn a hole in the top of a piston. The 427 engine was just beginning to be used for racing and we found out just what an awesome engine it was. Anyway that is just a few things that was going on back then. I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

Last Saturday we left Baton Rouge and drove the motorhome to Theodore, Alabama, and left her in Payne's RV park. We have visited them before and they were very accommodating about us leaving her there for a week or more. Since the car was packed with all manor of stuff we dragged out of the Texas place to take to Florida, we unloaded the car and put it all in the motorhome. Then we got our suitcases out and loaded them with clothes and everything else we would need for a trip to Indiana. My Mom (almost 95) was in the hospital and my sister was fearful things were not going well.

We drove from near Mobile to Warsaw, Indiana in 2 days, one night on the road and I visited Mom that day. She was doing better. One of my sister's dogs has "scratched" her arm. He "mouthed" her, not a bite. But it tore the skin every so slightly. My sister had cleaned it and bandaged it and didn't look at it for 2 days. . . . she got cellulitis in it. So they had her in the hospital for a few days. One of the nurses tending to her was sick and my sister asked her to wear a mask when in the room and around Mom. She refused. Mom came home from the hospital, arm healed, but went back into the ER that night with respiratory problems and flu like symptoms. That was when she got worse. So we drove up and were there 5 nights. I actually got to bring her home Thursday. By this time my sister was sick from that same nurse. We did raise a stink about it and the CEO of the hospital came to pay us a visit. I wasn't kind to that nurse. All she had to do was wear a mask, but instead she infected both my mom and sister with the same respiratory illness. Both are better now. Mom is doing well and Nita is much better. So yesterday we started back to Alabama. We arrived about 4:30 today. We had eaten an early supper which was good to do because now everything is put away and we are relaxing at 6 p.m.

Thank goodness Mom is a strong fiesty 95-year old. She is 4'10" and only about 88 pounds. Wouldn't think she could fight much off, but she is a fighter. She lives in her own park model in my sister's woods, just down the lane from each other. So all is well once again and we resume our journey to our Florida home tomorrow.

God bless everyone!

Yikes!!! Reading your story, I was fearful that it was going to have a bad ending. I am happy it did not. [emoticon]

Sorry I didn't mean to scare everyone. But at 95, anything can happen. So thankful our prayers were answered and Mom is back home doing well.

The behavior of the health "professionals" was appalling. I'm glad things are looking up, at 95 even minor incidends can become major.

That trip back to Indiana brought back memories. I hope we never have to do that again!!

Good morning everyone. Dale I am glad all is better with your mom. Well today is the day for my surgery I talked with Dennis Poole Wednesday night and he told me his surgery didn't go so well on his eye. He had the same type surgery and he is is having a problem with his sight. Anyway I am hoping and praying for the best. I wish everyone a blessed day, Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.
