School Story:

Grade school:
When we finished our work, in Miss Barbara Wait's (spelling?) class, she let us paint the inside of the windows. She taped designs on the outside of those huge tilting windows, and we'd very carefully apply tempra paint on the glass. It was fun and I thought that the room was gorgeous!

Junior High:
I loved sledding on Furnace Hill with Dick and Herb. I had my uncles Flexible Flyer, my grandfather sanded and waxed the rails and that sled flew like a bat out of %$#. It is amazing that one of us didn't get killed.


Mom ( soon to be 97 ) moved to Assisted Living and is thriving there. Getting her settled and closing her apartment consumed December. I managed to send very few Christmas cards!

The garage contains her wardrobe and remaining antiques that are in route to Seattle. Our daughter had water damage on their lower level from huge storms; they not ready for a delivery! A passerby asked if we were going
to have a Garage Sale!

I love every drop from our ongoing storms. I catch rainwater and carry buckets full to entry way plants that are under roof. They perk up visibly, Colorado River water contains salt.

The only thing I miss about living in CA are rainstorms, thunder and lightening. Real storms are rare. On a day with steady rain, I stand in an open doorway, just savoring the moment!!

Happy New Year to all!

Misplaced your phone number before I had a chance to call back. Otherwise, dementia is minimal. Great to hear your voice. Hope the reunion was/will be great. If you get this, please send phone number repeatedly until I call you back.
