Harry Hawkins

Grandpa Harry is my Dad’s grandpa. My memories of him are kinda vague, since I think I was only about 8 when he died. (I’ll check on that when the aunts wake up, they get a little grumpy when I wake them up at 5 am, to ask dumb questions!!) Update: He died when IContinue reading “Harry Hawkins”

Grandpa & Grandma

Since I’ve lauded Granny Chaney, now it’s time to spotlight Grandpa, and Grandma Hawkins, Dad’s parents. I’m so blessed that I knew both sets of grandparents. I even knew some great grands!! That seems to be a rare thing, and I’m so enriched, to have known them. Grandpa was a phosphate miner. The mine wasContinue reading “Grandpa & Grandma”

Life Leanings

I’m thankful for my life verse. Jeremiah 33:3 King James Version 3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Formal Family

First I’ll write about being thankful for my nuclear family, and go on from there. I’m so thankful my parents were married! I had both parents in my home. What a blessing that is.

Cruel Crashes

Fri evening, after the girls left with their dad, I was whining to DD1, about Always hurting. Whining to someone who can barely get out of bed?? Selfish much?? I’m just so over it.

Here’s Hoping

So, okay, this week has been a corker too. You probably expected that. We tried, unsuccessfully, to find a new place. The 2 cheaper ones we found, I wouldn’t make a ferret live there. And I heartily dispise ferrets!! So, we had to come to the sad conclusion that we are forced to stay here.Continue reading “Here’s Hoping”

Stability, & Stalking

Meanwhile, Rosemary is having trouble with a stalker! It’s a good friend of Dad’s. She went by his place, and left a note on his walker, which was in the lobby.
