Thank you, Bethany! That was amazing! I loved watching the proud Mommy of this very talented young lady!! :)
Why don’t you comment any more?
I am duly ashamed of my own complaining about not being able to do certain things (which is my own fault).
I’m so sorry, Hisman! (So good to hear from you!)
I want to comment all of the time, but seems like life keeps getting in the way lately. I read here when I can though. Last week my grandfather died…I was very close to him so it was very difficult for me… and this weekend I had my wisdom teeth- all four of them- removed and it was pretty painful- I got a dry socket in two of the teeth and a nerve was damaged or bruised so my tongue is numb and tingly on the left side.
I promise I’m going to try to comment more when I can, but I haven’t forgotten about anyone here. :)
I hope you will have a wonderful month. :) I saw your beautiful new baby grandson!!! He is precious. Congratulations!
Hey Bethany, I hear you on your experiences – I’ve shared some of them.
Have one remaining grandparent alive, my dad’s mom – she’ll be 98 in November. She never boozed and lived a pretty “clean” lifestyle as far as food, though nothing more than what was considered half-decent in the 1940’s.
It has been a tough, tough thing for me – my grandparents’ generation passing on. I’m 50 now so almost all are gone, Now it’s my mom and dad… Wow.
You will always be one of my all-time favorite people.
Sorry to hear about your Grand Dad.
Despite all your trials you still maintain a sweet spirit.
Hisman…thank you so much! You can read more about my grandfather at my blog, if you haven’t already.
I posted a couple of posts about him…he was a wonderful man, and a WW2 veteran with a purple heart…and he loved his family.
Doug, where have you been? I haven’t seen your posting in a while either. I almost thought you had dropped off the face of the earth. I hope you’ve been doing well. As for your grandmother, that is wonderful that she has lived such a long and healthy life so far. My last grandfather who died a few years ago lived to be 98 as well.
We watched Wayne Dyer’s No Excuses (I think that’s what it was called, something like that) seminar on PBS last night and he had a remarkable young man on named Dan Caro who was burned over 80% of his body at the age of 2 and lost his toes and both hands… and is one of the best jazz drummers in the south…
Truly amazing… the kids jaws about hit the floor. (Made me so proud to work in a hospital with one of the largest, most successful burn units in the country. Our kids go on to do amazing things, too!)
