April 27

I just had a message on my Facebook blog from a neighbor from our old cottage in Michigan. It was so nice to hear from him. There was a lot that I wanted to tell him, but not on the FB page. A daughter said that I could send him a private message. I'm still working on that. What I wanted to say to him is that we often talk about our fun days at our cottage. We had some really good times there and a lot of memories, with us and our neighbors. One of the cottages down the road from us was originally a Sears Roebuck house. It should be declared a National landmark , but the owners, I don't think want to go there. Many of the cottages were family places that were in the fourth generation of ownership. Hopefully, they now have indoor plumbing. We have a lot to remember from our cottage days. Picking blueberries, going to town to the library, going in the other direction to buy tomatoes and corn. Being chased and bitten by a farm dog, having one of our dogs doing a kamikaze thing and attacking a pick up truck. That was a trip to the vet where we met our first woman vet. How embarrassing when I think back and we said to her, '"When is the vet coming to see Charlie ? " ( the first of two Charlie's). The Saturday trips to country auctions , the rows around the lake in our row boat or canoe. Gee, those were good times.. and all four kids were still at home with us. Sob.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
