My daughter's birthday

November 24th, 2013 at 09:47 pm

Today would have been my daughter's 44th birthday. She died in July.
My birthday was yesterday. I remember the lawyer calling me on my birthday saying that my baby was on the way. (She was adopted at birth) She was born at 2 the next morning and I had to go and quit my job the next day. That was an exciting time!
No body in my family has lived to a ripe old age. If I make it one more year, I will be the oldest! I have no living family except for my hubby and puppies!

Our chipmunk came back yesterday and ate his little pile of food. Anyone know why we named him Alvin?

I have spent a very pleasant hour watching a chipmunk on my back porch. We have noticed him(her) for days trying to get birdseed from under the feeder, but the much larger squirrels always chase him off. Today, I poured several cups of sunflower seeds right by my back door. He must have come up 15 times to fill his cheeks and run off to hide his treasure. He is so cute. I will start doing that on a regular basis.

Veterans day!

Thank you so much to all the men and women who have kept our country safe!
My father was a veteran of foreign wars.
He was born in 1899, so he lied about his age and joined the army during WWI.
After the was was over, he got out of the army for a few years, but then he rejoined. He was in Germany and France during WWII. All in all, he served over 30years before he retired. I am proud of him.
