Family

Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!!


Aren't they a handsome couple?

Last night, some guests arrived at our house. My uncle Burl is having heart surgery, and his family is here from out of state, staying at a hotel. My mom mentioned to me the other day that they were being asked to leave their hotel. Apparently the Democrats are more important than people in town for medical situations. Can you believe that? Here at Short Story Long, we like having visitors. Today, we are blessed to have Aunt Ruthie, and cousins Debra and Phil. It is fun to have relatives you hardly know staying with you. You can stay up late talking and hear all sorts of interesting things, like places other people live, and things your parents did when they were little. And it's fun to know that someone will return the favor someday.

Speaking of the DNC, I hear from friends that all the post offices in Denver are closed, and they've removed the mailboxes from the streets. What? I guess if you live in Denver this week, and you have a birthday, you won't be receiving many packages. Isn't that sad? I mean, besides the no package thing, it is sad that the mailboxes need to be removed.

Well, it is laundry and yardwork day here. It's not my favorite sort of day, but it has its charm.

I had not heard that all the post office boxes were removed-I will to check that out around here.:) That definitely stinks for people having birthdays.

Thanks! The picture looks old like we do, but God has blessed & kept us going all these years! I'm glad you are enjoying your company! Better than a hotel anyway! Have a great day!
