Psalm 90:10, "The length of our days is seventy years—or eighty if we are strong....
Three Score and Ten the Introduction,

Well here we go, After 50 years I am going to take another attempt at writing. The first time was the Palmer writers correspondence school in 1969. The writing will be not a book that will be written with the idea of being published, But will be a writing of thoughts unencumbered by possible publishing and monetary gain. This writing will be a hybrid of Journal and Reminisce. It is important to me that the writings are my true thoughts at the time, not influenced by any factor. The writing will try to explain how a 70 year old white, male USA citizen now relates to today's world. Is every oldest generation lost in their own world, that they aged into? What do I see, and feel as I age farther. I know I am not normal as in what this world today would consider normal. But I hope I am in the ball park writing the thoughts of a 70 year old. I hope for you to learn to know who I am, As I search for Who I am at 70+ This work will carry on until I am no longer able to think or write. This will be done on a nearly daily writing interwoven with a life's reminiscing. This writing has been in the planning for 10 plus years. and I have now made it to this starting point. This writing is dedicated to My Wife The Kitten, My family, My grand children, Lukas, Levi, Luis, Lydia and Sonora Pearl. I thank you God that you have allowed me to have your Three Score and Ten Time.

Hello Grandkids and Others

We had a nice Thanksgiving dinner here with most of the family. Adult Kids and grands. it was here, we are centrally located. They brought everything to eat we provided plates and ectara. This way no one drives much more then two hours. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I is the day for a get together and meal together, with no gift distractions, Except for the eldest granddaughter, Sonora Pearl who turned 19 on Thanksgiving this year. She does her grandfather proud. she is studying advertising and marketing in college. and seems to take to it like a duck to water. I look forward to having the whole family here. I am very blessed.

As for my eyes I still see poorly. It feels like I am sitting on the outside looking in as everyday life passes by. I hope getting rid of the cataracts' this winter will help. My left side vision is now limited due to the stroke. but we shall see what the future brings. It could have been worse, God Blesses me. I will not give up on the future

Have a Blessed Evening

Hello All, an update once more, I am still having limited vision. i can not drive, It is difficult to write. I did manage to do a book dust jacket repair today. The internet booth is still on vacation, and I suspect will be for some time. i am starting to be depressed as there is little I can be doing. The family is coming here for Thanksgiving, so we do not have a longer drive. Thanksgiving is always my favorite holiday. And this year it is going to be extra special. family is always special, A true Thanksgiving.

We went to a close celebration of life event last evening. A friend and acquaintance of my next-door neighbor and myself. He died of lung cancer at 71. It turned out to be a good celebration. He is pleased, I am sure. He was a party animal. but a nice party animal. Rest In Peace Bruce.

I hope you have a Blessed Evening

Hello Grandkids and Others

The last days since I have written have been eventful. I have had a stroke. I get around okay but I have lost a lot of eye site. I have always had eye trouble now it is real trouble. I don't see to the sides. I get tired and confused easily and it is harder to concentrate. I feel like I am in a fog. It is hard to type, my one finger typing is not the best with eyes. We had planned to go up north today. It is about a 3.5 hour drive and it is snowing and the wife would need to drive. She is not used to driving 0n snow and ice so we will stay home and go when we can. We have things taken care that need to be taken care of up there. The Daughter's and grandkids will come here on Thanksgiving, so we do not need to drive. they will bring most of the meal so the wife does not need to do it all. She stresses easily and is 70 also. I sure am proud of our family and how close we all are. There is no Black Sheep. The oldest granddaughter, Sonora is adapting to college life well. I am so proud of her she is going to Marquette University. i was not able to go to advanced school. The family has made a lot of progress over the generations. I hope you are having a Blessed Day

Three Score and Now Twelve + Day 78
Hello Grandkids and Others

Hello Grands and others, I did get back here, I was wondering if I would. They just do not make the days like they used too. They seem shorter and not because of the time change. It is me. I struggle to get things done. I am clumsy and get tired out faster. But I do get things done eventually. the garden is cleaned out and is now roto tilled for spring. The fall painting is done for now, It is never really done. I you guys get that yard fence painted this summer. I am sure glad I did not have to do it. We did get the garden screen up with the motion detector operating. Next up rake leaves and put a heat tape on a pipe in the crawl space. We have a crawl space under the kitchen only, but it is a pain. We will weed and trim here as long as we can and try to get a leg up for this coming spring. In the north we have everything buttoned up for the cold months. I will trim some brush when we go back up the middle of the month.

We will see you Lukas and Levi this weekend when we come up. your mother wants to use the grain grinder. I am glad she asked if I had one. It gives me a good reason to come up and see. You guys are pleasant to be around and watch. I weather looks to be rain on the way up, a good day to drive up.

All in all it has been a good season. many things were done. I am hoping that the next years outdoor months will not be as harried. But I say that every year. But next year should be more reasonable. I am tired so Good Night All
