Hi Anne - yes, it was a horrible tragedy in France and such a waste of lives but these terrorists have no respect for life or anything holy which they have proven killing innocent women and children even of their own religion. Last weekend world leaders gathered in Paris to give France support and to let the world know they will not tolerate terrorism but where was our President? President Obama didn't even send his Secretary of State to represent America in support of France. What does that say about his leadership and foreign policy and how does that look to the rest of the world? You seem to have a good grip on past history, Anne, and the evils of this world and our leaders should learn from past history but they choose to ignore it which is very sad for our freedoms, America, and for simply what is right. Enough of politics - I do not want to make myself sick thinking about it...... Yesterday was such a pleasant change from the cold snap we've been having so my wife, youngest son, and I took a walk around the 2.5 mile lake loop at Fort Harrison. It felt so good to actually get out and walk for exercise without the wind chill factor stopping us. Luckily, on Friday I purchased a Golden Pass because yesterday they were charging an entrance fee at the gate to the state park! They usually do not charge an entrance fee in January or during cold winter months but I guess they wanted to make money honey as it was very busy with visitors such as we that had cabin fever and wanted to get out and about. So, I plan a repeat today for the exercise but, of course, I plan to be back home for the big game. Go Colts! I am hoping the Colts have a lot of good Luck. Catch you later, Anne, try not to let world affairs get you down, worrying doesn't help anyway but you can write letters to your Senators and Congressmen and send them emails also and that's what I do to blow off steam when depressed over the way this country is heading. God bless America and our men and women in uniform - take care, after while, crocodile - Tom

Hi Anne, just stopping by to wish you a very happy New Year. Jason.
|Kick||RE: WOW, YOU SAW HER HOME!|
I changed my icon to an animation of Kathleen, do you like it? :) I have a ton of rare pictures of Kathleen, if you'd like to see them, maybe we could email each other? It's okay if you don't want to.
And yes, going to Kathleen's house in Brookline was a blast. It was a wonderful experience.
I read a sad story about Kathleen... it said that after she heard the news of Billy's passing, she skipped dinner with her family and cried in her room for hours. When she came out, her eyes were said to be very red and swollen. Also after Billy died, Kathleen carried a photo of him in her pocket at all times and was so very sad all the time. She tried not crying though because her father had told her "Kennedys don't cry." So so sad. I know you and I would give Kathleen a big hug if we were friends with her at the time!

Did I tell you where I went a few months ago? I visited Kathleen's childhood house in Brookline, Massachusetts! It was amazing! I toured the house with my friend and we saw Kathleen's baby pictures on the wall. I wanted to get close to see them but we weren't allowed to. Kathleen's bedroom was very pretty. I almost cried! I love her so very much..

Hello Anne! So so sorry for such a late response. I've been very busy with school and getting ready for the holidays. I kept meaning to message you but unfortunately I kept forgetting! I've been so awfully stressed, dear. How are you? I made an ornament of Kathleen for my Christmas tree today! I wish I could show you a picture of it. Is there any way I could do that?

Hi Anne - no, I haven't forgotten you! Sorry I haven't answered your message sooner. I just haven't been on the computer much lately and sometimes I need a break from Find A Grave... I have been doing a lot of hiking and the Muzzle-loader deer season is in at the moment so I have been out in the woods freezing but getting my space which I need and the deep woods gives me that. Yes, Anne, time does seem to slide by quickly and time seems to accelerate as we get older - bummer! I knew the story about the four brothers that were killed at Pearl Harbor... Devastating for their parents and families. The two brothers on our street were also killed that day but I was too young to remember but was told later by my parents. When my bro and I were together during part of the time we were in the service together it was a standard policy not to have us fly on the same flight and we always took different flights, that is, when on military aircraft. Good for you losing a few pounds! Keep it up! Not easy I know. Every time I drive by a McDonald's or Arbys I have to force myself not to pull in - ha! That's especially true with Burger King and they purposely fill the air with that Burger King smell to entice you in - true! That's a dirty, low-down trick they use to get more business and that's the reason I never give them my business. I am still maintaining my weight loss but did gain two pounds which shook me up and I went on a crash diet and came back down again and I am keeping it there. Not that two pounds is horrible but if I let it go then soon it will be four pounds and then six so that's the reason I quickly went back to my desired weight. I just cut out all snacks for a week and that brought me back down. Nobody said life was fair, huh. Absolutely nothing before bed time, that helps a lot, also. Anne, when I quit smoking (over 31 years ago) I would have dreams of lighting up and then wake up thinking thank God it was just a dream. Now I am dreaming of wolfing down sugar coated doughnuts and Arbys roast beef and potato patties-ha! Hey, it's not fair, I mean, you can stop smoking but you can't stop eating so I guess I will have those 'wolfing down goodies' dreams for the rest of my life.... Catch you later, gator, and wishing you and hubby a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and the very best of everything - Tommo on the go...
|purple-lady||RE: HELLO, FROM ANNE|
Thank you for UR sweet message. So sorry to hear of your friend that passed away in 2007. I will definitely visit, when & if you post the memorial. We do have something in common [love of the color purple, angels & lovely butterflies].
May this Xmas season be filled with blessings for you & yours.
