Good afternoon to friends on the porch--those who are cold--and those not so much. It was 20 here this morning, but I understand that it's to be REALLY cold next week--colder than the 6 degrees of a week or so ago.
I've been buried in editing jobs, coming up for air occasionally, and right now, I'm waiting for a project coming soon. Also, I've been entangled with technical problems and I'm no techie! First a router to replace--then to get the printer working again. Agh! Where's Don when I need him!
Edy and Mariane, I do love your nursing home stories, but I'm no screen writer. I have a journal full of stories of 13 year-olds that remind me of the nursing home stories! I did put some together for one of the FW contests, but you can guess what happened with that.
My siblings and I never heard from Mom or Dad the whole story of their courtship. Mom was an elementary first-year teacher with two years of college, teaching in the little school in the Kentucky mountains, where Dad was a senior in high school. They were told not to see each other, and when Mother refused to resign because she saw him anyway, the board took her to court to try to fire her. My sister went to the courthouse after Mom and Dad had both gone to heaven and got the minutes from the trial. It was priceless. I took the notes and wrote a story from it. That one has not made it to publishing either. The upshot was that Mom and Dad eloped; so the board couldn't say anything about their seeing each other, and the judge in his concluding statement called it a big fuss over nothing.j
Chrissy, I hope you qualify so you can get all the necessary medications.
Don, I admire your creative abilities with wood. I bet you could make a money box!
Mariane, I admire your gifts with words, as well as your other artistic abilities. Your eggs are delightful. I love mine. Give greetings for me to Carol. She has such a beautiful spirit.
Edy, I love the e-mail. If I see at the bottom of one that I'm not a Christian if I don't forward it to everyone, I don't take the time to read it. Some of those on your list were really funny.
Our church has a missionary convention every February. I think the church supports, at least partially, 100 missionaries. I love to see the missionaries carrying the flags that represent their countries into the sanctuary.
Hope you all stay warm.
