HEARING FROM FRIENDS DOWN SOUTH

We have received pictures of the devastating flooding that has occurred in the Houston/South Texas area from our friends down there, and the scope of the flooding is overwhelming.  How anyone can deal with such huge losses, especially the damage done to the roadways and bridges and infrastructure of the cities, as well as the homes and businesses of all of the residents, is incomprehensible.  I cannot fathom how people can survive through the tragedy of such devastation.  It is bad enough for the working class to have to deal with such losses, but there are so many underprivileged families whose homes have been in a sad state of affairs even before the floods came along and they now would have no place at all to live.    It is really heartbreaking!  We are saying lots of prayers these days for our dear friends and all those who are having to suffer through this flooding and loss of their homes and everything in them!  Our friend, Maggie from Texas contacted us to let us know that she was okay, but there is no doubt that Mother Nature is wreaking havoc with their lives.  It is so wonderful to hear from her from time to time.  We met this dear lady at the Vidor Flea Market years ago when we used to go south with MDS and treasure every opportunity we have to connect with her.

I would like to say a big THANKS to those of you who read our little stories and enjoy hearing of our travels and family matters.  We sure do appreciate being able to share them and travel to places that some of our readers can only dream of (even if it’s only Kelowna B.C.).

This week on Facebook we were able to see our friend, Kaki’s friends from Romania enjoying their visit to Texas.  Kaki from Camp of the Hills had been over in Romania for an extended visit and met Andrea there before Andrea had met and married her husband.  Reminds me of “It’s a small world after all”!  We are so thankful to be able to keep in touch, albeit on the internet…  

Well, the garden is DONE.  Potatoes all dug.  The corn didn’t amount to much but a bunch of husks with mini cobs…   We enjoyed the Lavatera flowers as they bloomed and made many bouquets.  We had a little patch of cucumbers – I still have pickles from other years, so we just enjoyed them raw.  No bad for deciding to have a small garden after saying we weren’t going to bother this year…

Now it is time to take down the gazebo and clean out the eavestroughs in anticipation of another Saskatchewan winter.  It used to be a lot easier when we were a lot younger!!!  This year, we have some patio furniture that needs to be protected somewhat from the weather and it was necessary to re-arrange everything…  Climbing up and down the ladder to dig out the leaves seems to take a lot more energy than it used to!!   One thinks “I should get the kids to do it”, but they have their own eavestroughs to clean out, so we just go ahead and “git her done”!
