10-13-2011 – Happy Halloween! Boo! My costume consists of a pair of really long fake eyelashes that I got on clearance after Halloween last year. I don’t get any trick or treaters here where I live. I’ve been seeing a lot of people, kids and dogs in costume on television.
It’s been getting down in the twenties some nights with the lowest being 25 degrees one night. Tomorrow is supposed to be 68 degrees and sunny so we plan to work outside getting the plants ready for that “W” word (winter.) We’re gonna spend some time in East Moline in November and December so maybe we will have time to visit some with Dee, Rob and Sharon Allison.
Well, speaking of Dee, he just now called to thank us for the pictures we sent. I enlarged the Obit of Lewis Heatherly and sent Dee two and told him he might want to give Jeff Heatherly one of them and he said he did that and that Jeff was really glad to get it. So that makes me feel good. I’ll try to think of some more that I have that you might want and just maybe we might be able to bring them to you while up there in November and December. We would love to see you and Betty again.
Dee said his daughter, Cheryl and Bill White, are moving to Tennessee the 6th or 7th and Bill’s mother, June Cross, is going with them. It’s a town just outside Nashville, so I hope they’re happy in their new home. I don’t like the thought that I may never see them again, but maybe I will. Anyway, I wish them the best for all three of them.
Bill’s brother, Jerry, and his wife, Pam, went on a trip with a church group to Israel. They’re going to be seeing a lot of sights from the Bible. I’m sure they will enjoy that.
1. I won’t say my house is a mess, but have you ever seen a fly land in a cloud of dust? 2. A song heard by a beehive – “Bee it ever so humble, there’s no place like comb.” 3. One day two fathers and two sons went fishing. Each caught a fish. But only three fish were caught. Why was that? (Because there were only three fishermen – a boy, his father and his grandfather.)
Take care of yourselves and bye, bye for now.
