RE: Post Funeral Time Doing OK
Hi Anne - sorry for not answering sooner - I am not ignoring you but just haven't been on the computer much these past weeks. First, I am sorry about your father in law and death, to us the living, always seems so final.... Even a funeral for a bad boss at work is no fun at all. Funerals also reminds us of our own vulnerabilities but as Christians, we fear not and hold the Faith True and especially on this day - HAPPY EASTER to you and all loved ones, Anne. I have been hiking a lot at Morgan-Monroe State Forest and walking the "Lake Loop" at Fort Harrison and watching my diet and have lost 2.5 pounds - ha - all that just for 2.5 pounds! Well, nobody said life was fair. But the truth is, I love hiking and walking so it's not work for me. I am only a couple of pounds away from being of perfect weight for my age and height. Hoping all is going well with you - remember Anne, when wanting to fudge on your diet, when hungry just pop open a can of carrots and heat them in a microwave and it makes for a fast and healthy snack, hang in there and walking or swimming at the YMCA is great too. Take care, have a wonderful Easter - PTL! Later, alligator - Tom Oh, did I mention, NO chocolate Easter eggs for us.

Hi, Anne! :)

Sorry for such a late response. I hope you're well!

And yes, I will add you on Facebook! What does your profile picture look like? Just so I know which Anne Beckman to request!

No, I have not read that book. I'll have to check it out! I just finished reading a book about Rose Kennedy and it was really fascinating. I realized that she was not as harsh to Kathleen as I thought...

I'll try emailing you the rare photos of Kathleen as well. I can't wait for you to see them! :)

Hi Anne ~ have a great St. Patrick's day and you already have been busy! Good for you with the weight loss... No green beer today! Beer has sugar in it! Have you noticed when dieting everything that taste good seems to have sugar in it.... Anne, to be honest, I never quite understood St. Patrick's Day when I was a kid, I mean, everyone wanted to pinch me for not wearing green!!! I wouldn't have minded being pinched by pretty girls but it was always the boys doing the pinching. I am not from Ireland, I am from West Virginia and my ancestors were from Wales so why do I have to wear green? The teacher would always say, "now boys and girls, don't forget to wear something green tomorrow"... Well, I still don't get it but I wear green just to be safe. A pot of gold - naw - I'd rather find a pot of ham & beans with a half loaf bread and real butter... Top of the morning to ya, Anne, catch you later, alligator - Tom

Hi Anne - Sorry to hear the news about your father in law, doesn't sound very promising but it isn't over till it's over.... There is always hope. His weight is definitely working against him. My experience dealing with my own family members is that there is no way to be fully prepared for the end to come... Having some advanced warning and being prepared, when it comes it is still a shock. Hang in there and try not to stress. We did bite the bullet and bought a new furnace - ouch! We had no choice since our old one took a nose dive with a big bang! It quit during our cold spell and snow storm. The last several days have been warm and I have done the 2.5 mile loop at Fort Harrison several days in a row and yesterday took a long hike at Morgan-Monroe State Forest for fun and exercise. I am still careful of what I eat and sticking close to my diet plan but sometimes that isn't easy - it takes sacrifice. Anne, I'd like to meet the guy that said, "life is nothing but a bowl of cherries" and slap him hard! It's obvious that he never got one cherry pit in his life, know what I mean. He was probably the only child of very rich parents and one of those guys that can eat all and anything and never gain a pound. You and I have to work at not gaining weight but nobody said life was fair. I am maybe two pounds over the normal weight for my height and age but it is a constant battle. Wishing the best for your father in law, and for you and hubby too and keep up the swimming at the YMCA and no Little Debbies or green sugar cookies on St. Patrick's Day.... Take care - later gator - Tom

Blessings, hopes, prayers, and best wishes to you and your loved ones, Anne.
Very Truly Yours,

Hi Anne ~ An old military saying, "if you can see the enemy, the enemy can see you"...True! I have always kept that in mind... I have a long list of military slogans that just may have saved my hide but I have no control over Murphy's Law which states that "when something breaks it always seems to happen at the worse time". True! During our coldest days this past week our furnace went, "BOOM" and can't be repaired! Bummer! We've been nursing it along for several years as it was giving us problems both during the summer (central air) and winter so it was no surprise that it finally bit the dust for good. So, do you happen to know a 23 year old rich widow that that lives in a large mansion, has two Cadillacs parked in her garage and owns a string of liquor stores and wants to meet an old man with Paul Newman baby blues? Hey, fix me up! She can help me pay for a new furnace.... Luckily, my bro loaned us a couple of infra-red heaters that have been keeping our living room and kitchen warm but the rest of our house has been kind of cold! The furnace repairman can't get to us to install a new furnace until Monday, if then?.... He says that we are not the only ones that were caught by Murphy's Law and he has been working overtime for the last month trying to keep folks warm. Besides having cold feet, we are doing okay, no complaints. I hope all is well with you and the pain has disappeared and you're feeling like brand new again. Hang in there, keep the faith, keep on walking and drink a lot of water. I did gain a couple of pounds and the main reason is because I haven't been doing my daily walks (too cold and nasty outside) and I did fudge on goodies a couple of times eating those jelly filled doughnuts!!! I gain weight just sniffing them! I needed the extra calories to keep warm, right. Catch ya later, alligator, after while crocodile - Tom

Hi Anne - good to know that you're doing well and surviving this Arctic blast and snow... Six inches on my street today - bummer! It's nice that you do church work and have church friends and they are the best kind to have, definitely! When I was in HS I had a steady girlfriend and she was Catholic and she did a lot of volunteer work for St. Kate's (Saint Catherine Church) and I tagged along but was a Protestant but learned a lot. The priest told us a joke once, - "Mary had a little lamb... and the doctor fainted"... HA! My girlfriend and I laughed so loud and the priest seemed to enjoy our laughter but we were laughing at how corny the joke was and not because it was funny but the priest didn't know that, I hope. Have you ever thought about the difference between the Catholic cross and the Protestant cross? The Catholic cross has Christ still on it being crucified and the Protestant cross does not have Christ on it to represent the Resurrection. I have no problem with either cross because people should be reminded of His suffering on the cross as well as His resurrection - know what I mean, Anne. We got our driveway and side walks shoveled clear this afternoon and cleaned the cars off and it became so bright when the sun came out! When I walked back into our house I was blind - ha! I am happy for you with getting dental coverage. Good for you!.. Unfortunately, our co-pay has gone up and some benefits cut thanks to Obamacare! The doctor we had (for many years) just quit his practice and moved back to Canada!!! We were very lucky to find another doctor to take us in. Yes, I too remember that song by Foreigner and Wynonna Judd also sang a wonderful version of the same song. It was a great song... I wish they had songs like that today. I bought a 40 pound bag of corn and have been feeding the squirrels both in front and the back yard.. Last night, late, I looked out my bedroom window and saw a rabbit munching on the corn and a pair of red birds have been eating it also during the day time. This is the second 40 pound bag I bought in 6 months and these creatures are getting fat. I am still doing my diet gig and have gained two pounds but only because I haven't done my walking exercise as much because of the nasty weather but I am watching what I eat and it's really hard to pass up that pastry section at Meijer's when grocery shopping! It takes will power and those chocolate cakes look SO good! Hang in there, Anne, keep the Faith and no sweets for you, sweetie - later gator - Tom

Hi Anne!

Sorry for my late response. I've been so busy! I hope you've been doing well.

Last night I wasn't feeling too good, and it took me hours to fall asleep because I was hot and feeling nauseous, so I went downstairs to take my temp and it turns out I had a fever. I just woke up a little while ago and I'm still feeling pretty down, not as nauseous as before. My fever went down a little bit as well which is nice. I wish Kathleen was here to take care of me. I'm sure she had the magic touch!

I can't believe Kathleen is going to be 94, it just doesn't seem real! I'm sure she would still look beautiful even if she were alive today. I love her so much.

I wish I could go to her grave and drop off some flowers for her, but she's too far away...

I will email her rare pictures to you as soon as I can. I will try to do it today. Do you have a Facebook too?
