Monday, Monday


A new week, a new day and lots of new things waiting on me. Took a spoonful of the whiskey, honey and lemon last night and didn't cough all night. Still have the runny nose and sneezing but feel like I can get a lot done on this beautiful day! It was cold last night but today is suppose to be the warming trend for the week so I am going to get outside this afternoon to plant and work around the yard. Almost have the inside things done for the day so hopefully that 62 degree weather will be here by the time I get outside. Going through some old photos my brother gave me of mothers I found this one. I didn't know my dad was on a ship in the Pacific when Don was born until seeing this photo. I called him and he told me he was a year old before dad saw him for the first time. Dad was shipped out when mother was 8 months pregnant. This display was put in the jewelry store window in 1944 (year my brother Don was born) His picture is there but way down on the right side. But anyways thought I would share this picture with you...... Have a great day and count your blessings!

Peggy, so nice to have you visit my blog..Thanks so much for the nice compliments. We can always use them, can't we. I have a good idea for your cough. I found a great cough syrup but it tastes nasty..I blogged on it too. It was January 20th on my blog if you would like to read about it. It is called Buckley's. It will stop that cough..BELIEVE me!! It will if you can stand to take it!! I had bronchitis so bad that it was close to pneumonia..read that blog when you have the time. Your blog is great...I hope you feel better. Sandy

My grandpa didn't see my mom until she was two years old! I think that was a pretty common thing in WWII.

I'm a little jealous...I want to get to my outside work but it's still too cool here!:(

Mindy,

My father was also on the Orchid during WWII. I would love to exchange information and hear any stories. My dad passed away in 1966.
