Hi Sweetheart - I finally did it. I called Social Security to claim your Social Security and your death benefit. I spoke to a lady in New Mexico. She was very nice. She set up the appointment for August 05 - I was doing just fine until she read back all the info to me and said that as reason for the appointment she put down widow pension. That's when I almost lost it. She was very understanding.

In today's mail YOU received an invitation for a 3-night stay at the Peppermill Reno, since you are such a loyal customer. Hmmm - care to explain that one?? I called them and spoke to them about that there is NO way that you are a loyal customer there. He apologized many times. The poor guy was so embarrassed, it was funny.

I haven't heard from my customer yet. The packages were delivered on Saturday, 07/17. Since it went to her cottage, she probably hasn't been there. I will send her a note and find out.

I am contemplating making things for my Etsy store again, but am not sure about that yet. I will pray about it a bit more.

Your rosebush is doing well, except the roses are small and yellow. I think that might be, because the bush is still settling.

I received a letter from David asking yet another favor. He asked for a loan of $30 - if he keeps his nose clean, he might be transferred back to Draper the end of October, beginning of November.

I received another letter from Dean. He is wondering how long it will take until I forgive him and come back out to see him. He still thinks, I accused him unjust. NO sign of an apology, because he doesn't think he did anything wrong. He thinks that he can say anything he wants but if I call him on it, I am the one in the wrong. That's not how it works. It's going to be a while until I go out to visit again. Do you remember Anderson, the nice one? He told Janean to make sure and tell me HI and he misses me. LOL. But not as much as I miss you. Be well my love.

What a beautiful note to your darling hubby. You remind me of my Daddy. He carries Mom with him as you do your hubby. He and I talk about her often and he tells what's going on in his life; though we both know she really knows without it being verbalized.

I can't remember if I ever answered your question. Life's been so hectic. Thrilled to have you as a follower. Surprised you didn't know about my group. It had been posted for several years on Bev's yahoo group. Someone told me it was no longer there...just jogged my memory. Must hope over, do a mini update and check it out.

Note to self...gees my memory these days.

Anyway, there is no deadline on the hats, scarves, and mittens. And you still have time to get in on the blog contest and win yarn. Making rounds today to remind folks.
