Grans Christmas Letter
Merry Christmas to my family and friends. 2005 My 80th year on this earth speed by like a roller coaster. To celebrate the occasion, my youngest girl chick and I filled a long time dream of going to New York City. I have heard you either love New York or hate it, we fell in love. We saw everything you are supposed to, Took some guided walking tours, did some “touring” on our own, Stayed in a lovely old hotel out of the “high price” range in the upper west side that I hope to return to someday. In June Jim and I dusted off the motor home and attended a RV jamboree in Redmond Oregon . This one is held in a different place each year and this is the first time out here on the west coast. Met people from all over the states. There were 5000 rigs in that small town, had us parked in wheat fields and any other place they could put an RV. We learned anything you ever wanted to know about an R V, and some we didn’t want to know. Later on we went to Sioux Falls S.D. so Jim could attend a class reunion. This trip is not new to us, and it was hotter than usual everywhere. ( Can’t think of much to say about that trip) We did get to see an Aunt and Uncle who are in their 90's and still going strong. Life was sort of dull around here this year, Other than a deck around the house I didn’t build, tear down, or dig up anything. Family had only one weeding I couldn’t attend in Hawaii, no babies, and no one got sick. I made a move this fall that has changed my life somewhat. I have a young lady living in the “guest” room. She is studying for her masters via her computer and needed a quiet, cheep, place to stay. ( He parents live here, have know them ,and her for years)She was working in California, not liking it at all. She wanted to come back to Poulsbo and study, but didn’t want to live at home. I had been thinking it might be a good idea this winter to have someone here to help me out now and then. Have to admit there are a few things around here that are hard for this skinny person to do. She came along just at the right time. I offered her a deal she couldn’t refuse, The big thing is that she is HERE if I should need someone. My ever faithful,, watch dog neighbors are often gone in the winter. ( Last year they called me every week from where they were) They know her and are glad for me that she is here. My children are all happy and doing well, Sara in Wenatchee. Pete in Spokane and Marsha in Hawaii . Brother Jim comes often to do good deeds around the place. He has a new puppy that has a couple things to learn ,but is a darling. All is well in my world, I hope the same for one and all this Christmas season and many years to come.
