Mum is here and well



Lesley's mum is now here and settling into life in North East Tennessee. She handled the long flight from New Zealand to Los Angles very well. She and Lesley spent 5 days there resting and spending time with relatives. A 5 hour flight here and all is now going very well. The paperwork and medical exam are in the hands of the immigration lawyer and mum's health is good. She has a nanny nap once or twice a day and awakes bright and cheerful


What a joy it is to have her with us at this time in her life! Lesley has been taking her all over the local shops and we have been spoiling her every day. We spent last weekend in Atlanta with some relatives and she was the center of attention. Lesley and mum are sharing many special mother/daughter hours together everyday. I rather stay out of the way and do as I am told. I have never eaten better!


Before she arrived I put a short hand rail by the only two steps in our house and they have worked out well. It is all she needs to get up and down them without assistance. We just hover nearby. This week I will be putting the seat lift in the motorhome so she will not have to deal with stairs getting in and out of it. She is excited and cannot wait for us to get on the road again soon. We plan to be traveling in late June for a month or so, depending how she handles it.


the dogs have become very protective of her and are always nearby.


well, I must go now, just a quick update here.

Brilliant, Give Lesley and her mum our regards! Valerie and Leslie had a long chat on the phone when she was here and my ears are still burning so I expect you and I were being discussed!

Sounds a good start George.  I hope you do some travelling and she enjoys it.  I think she may find the winters longer and colder than New Zealand but a good summer makes up for that.  I am sure you and Lesley will enjoy her company too. I love spending time with my daughter, SIL and grandkids but whether I could live permanently  with them or not I don't know.

I know where that is. I live close to Bristol Motor Speedway. " It's Bristol Baby!" See a race sometime! It's awesome!
