Great news....

Hi all!

Ann ~ that's great how your community supports others, very kind & generous of you all.
Boy, just reading what you all are up to makes me feel like a sloth or taking a nap!
I spoke to my DH's ex the other night & mentioned being in CA 50 years ago & she said wow, you've been together a long time. I replied yes, 'cause we don't have a gun!! Their marriage only lasted a little over a year but long enough to have a child.

Grandpaul ~ I thought you were sailing Dec 4 . Glad to hear the ship's back in service.

Bob ~ nice visuals as always.

Have a great weekend.

~ Jo ~

Marylou will get everything done. I pay and she does everything else.
594 hours till we leave, Lots going on for the next few days. Got 2 college hoop games and 1 college football game to go to. Tomorrow for the girls birthday we meet our son who lives on Long Island halfway to Albany, in Poughkeepsie like we do every year. And after our luncheon the Dad's said we are taking the girls bowling. That should be hysterical. They've never done it before. I take my local Grandsons up here bowling at least a couple times a week. I just don't bowl myself. More fun watching someone else bowl.

Our trip Sunday for the Granddaughters birthday might have to be rescheduled. The Father of the twins is a director for the power authority on Long Island and there's a possibility of some damaging weather on Sunday with some high winds and he might be called into work. He'll know Saturday night. I don't think it looks that bad but we'll see what happens. Our local university's basketball team won again tonight. Have won their first 3 games this year. Another game Monday night.
