With being married to Bobby (will be 47 years in February)… these are like brothers and sisters…

Thankfully the brother-in-law was up in his chair and ready to talk…

Of course very weak… eating little or nothing… drinking some… on oxygen totally… and a heart pace-maker had been implanted the last couple of weeks…

To be able to spend some time with them was wonderful…

We stayed until we could tell he was ready for a napk18876361 … and their dinner was almost ready…

but, coming home was a breeze…

I imagine the “Black Friday” shoppers  k15090781were in the stores instead of on the highway…

THANK GOODNESS!…

We stopped long enough in Tennessee to visit a cousin and her husband…

Fresh Pizza k14934267  for a change instead of turkey… Tasted Good!…

We arrived home to rain beginning to fall… k9756339

It had been a perfect three days while on our short trip… but, rainy this weekend…

I have done NO shopping in the stores…

On line is where I do my shopping k12772329delivered straight to my door…u15538930

I will do a little… but, just odds and ends…

We draw names… in our little family of 5 adults but, buy for the three kids…

We are also buying funky Christmas Socks…
