WHERE I HAVE BEEN...

I have not been posting as much as I should be and I am sorry. My cousin, whom I am very close to, came home on Saturday morning to find her husband had passed away! She had been at the cottage and did not get a phone call from him on Friday night, so had a bad feeling and drove the 100 miles up here to the city. Her worst fears were confirmed. He retired at the age of 61 the end of October and did not do well with retirement. He also had lost alot of weight and his balance was off.....he had seen the Dr, but it didn't help and he wasn't ready to get further help, nor listen to my cousin at her request for more help. Sadly he fell down the stairs....my heart goes out to my cousin. She tried to help him, but realized that she also had to live her life. The have two grown children. Anyway, my thoughts and prayers are with her this week as our family gathers for the wake and the funeral service.
I am trying to read all my favourite blogs, but I am just not really up to posting about my fun vacation under the circumstances...I will be soon though.
Have a great day everyone.
Hugs

I am so sorry about your family's loss as well.

But I want to thank you for visiting my blog. Were you asking if I lived in a mobile home? No, we live in a house. It is pictured in the right column. If that is not what you meant, you can try to ask me again. LOL!

Thank you for your kind remarks. I too loved Holly Hobbby when I was a kid. :)

By he way, I love all of the songs on your playlist! Love David Cook!
