It was a rough week. It was nice to see packages from Jean F. and Suzann. I will write them privately, but I HAVE to show this. As you know, I gave up my Lady E to my next door neighbor two weeks ago. I'll admit there were a few times this week I longed for her, but here is living proof that "what goes around comes around."
It was wonderful to come home and find a package containing THIS lovely shawl from Jean and Dan, to thank me for sending packages during Dan's deployment. OMG! It's silk and pashmina, and it's red and black, and it is EXACTLY my style of pseudo paisleyishness! Wow!
My dad's official cause of death was diabetes mellietas, with a side of cardiac infarction. The stinker bought a big ol' Hershey bar on the way home from the hospital last Thursday night.
I'll be writing more later, but want to leave you with one thought-if your parent EVER asks for a shredder (Father's Day, Christmas, whatever) spend fifty more dollars than you planned. Trust me, you will be glad you did.
