|Three Score and Now Twelve + Day 13
Hello Grandkids and Others
Did you notice it is now Three Score and Twelve? I have crossed another line in the sand. The years are going by faster all the time. if I am getting older you kids and grandkids are also getting older. Kathryn you have turned 50 this month. Lukas and Levi you have started 8th grade and are now top dog at your small school. And Lydia is now a senior at high school with choices that now need to be made. And Luis the Younger is at parochial grade school and maybe settling down a bit. And you Sonora Pearl have started a very well thought of private college. and Jordan you will graduate Marine boot camp the end of September. I am so happy with all of you. My family of children and grandchildren are and will be a great legacy. God has poured many Blessings on this Family. We all have much to be thankful for.
My days here this time of year are hectic. It is harvest time from the gardens. And the harvest has been a good one. We now eat much from the garden and are also able to freeze and share with the neighbors much. But an early fall is coming up fast. I can see a time of coming of rest and maybe writing to you all more.
We did a Flea Market last Sunday and we did better than I thought we would. We have another Flea Market this coming Sunday at a different location. Doing them back-to-back really beats me up. There is a lot of detail to take care of, Cleaning, Restoration if needed, Research and Pricing of items. Then the flea market set up, Displaying, Tear Down and driving each way. But there are rewards, Some monetary but know the flea markets are more than monetary. The flea markets have become our outside activity, A social event. That is important at this stage of the game. It is now our only social activity. We used to ballroom dance weekly. But that is now gone, no place to go. And there are some now health issues with strenuous dancing. We are hoping to take a bus tour next year if we can find a sitter for the little dog. So the little dog has curtailed us some. But as I say, "We Shall See"
We are getting ready today to travel north. I need to get the tractor back from the repair shop, Nothing serious. The potatoes will need digging soon. and yard always need attention.
I hope you all have a Blessed Week.
