Our Journey Helping Those In Need Throughout North America
We were delighted to see some photos from Texas last week of Tom and Betty’s 70th wedding anniversary where they renewed their vows (he asked her to marry him, again, she said YES, and he gave her a ring) and their grand-son-in-law, Jace Robertson, presided, all of this occurring at their home in Texas.
The computer has arrived! Hallelujah! I trust it had an interesting journey – delivered to U.S. Post Office, Pierre, South Dakota, on February 16th; left U.S.A. February 18th, arrived at Mississauga, Ont. on February 19th, “International item processed” (Customs, I presume) and released to Canada Post later the same day. It arrived in Prince Albert for pickup on March 3rd. Seems to be intact and I am happy to have it back!
Over a week without a functional computer…what a nightmare! At least for the first part of last week. I had the use of a “retired” computer to play my Bookworm game (an addiction by now) in the evening, and type my next article for the paper. However, it was not long before my old computer packed it in and would no longer start. Thank Heaven for Jerry’s assistant in the front office for getting my last article off the old dead computer and into print!! She, in her infinite wisdom, knew how to recover the “thought to be long gone” article in time for publication. The computer appeared to die once and for all immediately thereafter!
Before getting into our trip to Mexico, I just thought I would mention that it seems to be that people LIVE LONGER down here in Texas. Many 90 year olds are still living in their own homes rather than in nursing homes. And lots of them are living on big acreages with family living nearby to check in on them. As Miss Nila says, “We just keep on carryin’ on”. . .
