    Happy Anniversary Mema!

  2. Hi Fred. Thought you would like to know I am still around and doing well. I don't know the answer to your question about Afghanistan, but I do think our troops should be brought home to be prepared to defend us here. Vi

    A Big Weekend

    This past weekend was really special for me. I was able to watch our granddaughter, Ashley, graduate from Emporia State University in Emporia, Kansas. Paul didn't go because he wasn't feeling well. A viral bug of some sort. It has been almost 6 years since my stroke and this was the longest trip I have attempted. It's about 700 miles.

The window is only the beginning...painting and new carpet come next. I had completely re-done that room shortly before my stroke, five and a half years ago. I am so impressed with the care you give Ray. In fact, I have been impressed with all the carers I have met on this site. Vi

    Of course, Tootie will be in our prayers. I have no advice except to stay close to Tootie and give her lots of hugs. Vi and Misti
