We have 2 weeks left before the projected completion of our flooring project and will then make the trip back "home". Initially we will be there until about October 20th to help with family issues. If Sandee's mom continues to be with us for weeks (not likely but possible) then we will have to reconsider that date.



This really changes our plans but we feel fortunate that we were in the local area instead of days away. Her mom is the greatest and the whole family is special to me. I could not have married into a better family.



Our biggest concern is that her dad stays strong. He is in pretty good health and we hope he takes care of himself.



So...



Our eyes are still on the rainbow but it is a tad further away than we wish. But...we persevere.

Don and Sandee, lots of ommmmm... All our prayers that you will all be comforted......



Diane is the original FTSFM........... (Fast Talking Sliding Finger Mutant, #64) and is retired, duh!

Thanks for the words I wish I could have crafted, Barb.

Don and Sandee, my Mom left us after 7 weeks when the experts said "no more than two weeks". And it was hospice care and constant presense of family that made her transition so very pleasant.
Best wishes for all of you.

Barb - Actually what I'm concerned about is a nimrod coming along while we are in a restaurant - sleeping - anywhere other than watching the car - and pulling the thing out and walking away with it. We all know to check the pins and connections when hooked up to tow. But this is different - the disconnect is right there for someone to pull even when the brackets are completely removed. I would prefer it to be out of passerby view.

You meaning is? Are you calling a Mork, Dork, or a chicken. You are most likely in trouble now.

Played withe thought of coming to Rockport... but it would snow on ya'll....a few years ago, we went to Austin in Feb. and the snow followed us down there... we saw kids out with snow boards.... went on down to galveston, and it was still miserably cold and windy, had to wear the winter parka the whole time outside there....
November isn't too bad here usually, we don't get a first frost until around Halloweenish... If I were to go south, I'd do it in January or February.
