New Year 2016

This New Year's postcard describes
the weather we've been having here in 
 E. J Andrews-1904
From our back porch the Swan Creek has turned into a
raging river and sounds like a freight train rollin' by.
Thankfully we live high on the bluff side!

Merry Christmas 2015

I love this sweet little Raphael Tuck postcard from 1906.
In case your wondering where I've been......
The hubs has been suffering with neck pain for about a
year.  The past couple months have been rough.  To his
 delight he finally had surgery! (I was a basket case).   
 He is home and doing very well, but full recovery 
will take several months. We are fairly confident he
will set off the alarm bells next time he walks through the
 body scanner at the airport or gets near a metal detector!
 My bachelor brother, ( I have referred to him 
as my "eccentric" next door neighbor in a couple 
of posts!) had a stroke.  As far as strokes go, he is in
 fairly good shape.  Issues with his right side and some
 vision loss.  He is also home and fingers crossed, 
 will have improvement.  I'm his "wheels"and his 
"meals on wheels".  Needless to say, I am concentrating 
on the important things in
  Frankly, we all feel very lucky around here, things
 could certainly be a lot worse.  I don't know about you,
but I am very good at imagining the worst!!!
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas 
& a Happy New Year!
