Comments:

What have I been doing in the last 50 years?? Lets see, I got married, had 2 kids, got married again, worked a while, went to beauty school and oh yeah...I got married again!! Sometimes you have to do things until you get them right. I ended up my working days as the owner a a flower shop and would be doing it still if I did not have MS which makes it hard for me to get around some times. So I retired and now we spend winters in Mississippi and other months traveling and comping around the country. It's a rough life, but someone has to do it.

Here it is April again, we are home from Mississippi where we spent a very nice, WARM winter. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary last month. Where does the time go?? Is it just me or are the weeks and months flying by a whole lot faster than they used to??? Before long we will be packing up for yet another trip.....this time to the totally exciting state of IOWA! Yea, right. He goes to the races, I go
to the bar with old friends, watch lots of movies and go to garage sales. Wow if my life was any more exciting, I'd drink Drain-O. Thank God for Vodka. Rum and whatever else I decide to try!!! It does make the time go faster.

School Story:

I remember biology class sophmore year when we had to all have a bug collection (WHY??? I"VE NEVER used this information any where or anytime in my life!!) Back to the story....I HATE bugs and
am scared of big buys, so my buddy Oran Dalby
thought it would be funny to put a waterbug on my seat. Of course I SCREAMED, he and all the boys laughed, and he and I got called to the hall for a big talk about bugs and screaming in school!!
