Hi Okobobo;   If you get time, go to Anthony's Fish Grotto and get a Shrimp basket out on the porch, or deck, and enjoy it while watching the view.   I'd love to be their now, sharing it with a good companion.

Thank you Okbobbo for the response, I have been busy too, my nephew is here and I am trying to figure how to get this rental on the market. My daughter wants another day until we start, but I want to get it done.

My friend message does not work properly so I will respond on your page. That is good that you have a chapter in your area. I am glad you have a chapter in your area.

Okbobbo, I'll be there as soon as I am able to get caught up, and hopefully this aging back to work again. My daughter wants to meet you and the Ventura chapter. Her mother always loved that area, and the Library that I learn something every time I visit.

Your Friend,

Hi Okbobbo, I was just coming up to post you a message. I have rentals and someone took off in the night and I am going to have to postpone. I work with a rental management group that likes to get the homes back on the market ASAP. This is done for a number of reasons, and they are correct in their thinking. We will be there in March if I can make it. I have an injury also from catching my brother when he fell. My nephew as old as I am and has a knee that may need surgery. He was an electrical inspector for Dallas for 20 plus years. It is just a little much for me to handle everything without Ellen sometimes.

I promise you we will stay in touch. and want to meet you and the Ventura Chapter as soon as I can get there. We always go to President Reagan Library every time we are in Ventura.

Hi Okbobbo. You are originally from Greensburg and Jeannette, PA? If so, what a small world. I graduated from IUP in Indiana, PA!!

I know what you mean. I can't help but feel a little resentful when people tell me I have to move on. I don't think we ever say goodbye to those we love or that we should. 

Have a good day today. Sundays can be difficult. I always have breakfast with a friend after church to help with the lonliness of a typical family day. It helps.

Hi Okbobbo,

Your family is so beautiful. Thank you for posting this lovely tribute to all of them and for sharing so much of your most tender feelings. I'm truly sorry for your loss. I know how difficult/shocking it is to lose someon/e who is more than a part of seems as if they're our whole life and in a waythey are...they're certainly almost all of the life we created together...Sadly, so much of that life seems to go along with them when they leave us....

My task has been to re-create a life without my husband...sometimes it feels as if I'm succeeding...but deep down I know that we never forget or'get over' such loss. Do you recall a song called 'Clouds'?..........I've looked at clouds from both sides now..I really don't know clouds at all.....well, that's how life/love seem ...I've made the effort to look at all sides...and have come to the conclusion that I really don't know much at all....

I wish you all the best for the Holidays and more....that you find comfort in this time of sorrow..Take care, Marlo
