IT'S A GIRL ... we think :)

The sonogram on Tuesday indicated that granddaughter, Sara is carrying a baby girl. However, the technician says to save our receipts when we buy little girl clothes because she is only about 16 weeks. They can’t say for sure until a little later down the road.

Daughter, Bobbie is doing well. I am so proud of her and so happy she has taken control of her health and well-being. Her son, Joe who lives at home and their friend, Johnny who shares their home and rents her spare room are also taking charge of their tobacco addictions and her home and property is now a smoke-free zone. Her friends and family that love her are so happy and so relieved that Bobbie has taken this shot across the bow (as Phil describes her heart attack) seriously.

Our cabinetmaker came last night and installed the bases for the lower cabinets and we can at last really envision how the space for the kitchen is going to look. Our floors are so out of level (fairly common in trailers) that he had to do some clever shimming and it looked great when he was done. We’re hoping to be ready for the counter tops by Thanksgiving. Keep your fingers crossed!

We have snow and very low temperatures in the forecast for today and Monday. Phil has done some insulating and prepared Penny the Pace for the freezing weather and done some weather proofing around the trailer as well. Bobbie gave Phil and I (we share our birthday) an early birthday present on Saturday … a beautiful blue electric blanket. I am thrilled and no more bundling up like Nanook of the North when I go to bed.

Happy Thanksgiving to all and thanks a bunch for stopping by!

Until next time …

PS: Sorry, I forgot to take a picture of the Windstar van still and no news on the Cadillac. Phil is stalling checking on the progress of the mechanic because he isn't looking forward to paying the bill.


  1. Your house is looking great! and it sounds like you are enjoying being around your family. I'm glad. We love you both

  2. BRAVO to Bobbie for having the courage to make the changes she needs to get healthy. Wow. Fantastic news.

    Mazel tov on the news of the little girl (maybe a girl) on the way.

    Happiest Thanksgiving!
