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...

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.

RE: Praying You'll Have LOVE, PEACE and JOY
Anne, you have had an amazing life! You would love where I live. I live in a Ghost Town Lund Idaho. It was once a hopping little town. I own all that is left of it, the country store and attached Victorian home with an attached motel. I live in both the store and house. I collect antiques so walking in my house is stepping back in time. The attached Motel housed many outlaws as well as pioneers on the trail ( I have a historical sight sign on Fish Creek Pass above my house). A pioneer Cemetery, my drinking well is a spring where the pioneers stopped to water their horses and oxen, bury their loved ones and fill up water for the rest of the stretch of the trail. All of this is in the book ("The Homesteaders) My Great Grandfather helped to build Lund. His house was the first to have gingerbread trim. The church was also a school house. My Grandma traveled to teach here and that is how she met my Grandpa Reddish :) I am close to Jackson Wyoming and Yellowstone national Park. I live in the mountains. I have slow internet!! The snow gets deep and sometimes I am stuck at home a few days in the winter but I love it here.
I am wishing both of you all the love and happiness of the Christmas season. Take care. HUGS Jeanette

RE: Hi!
Hello and so glad to hear you had such a great Thanksgiving vacation. As for me and mine, we also had a great Thanksgiving with family and friends. As for Black Friday, no way. Here in Las Vegas things get way too crazy. I'd rather just shop online. Like today's Cyber Monday. I've trying to find a video game for my Grandson Robert but it seems they are out of stock just about everywhere. Maybe in a couple of week I'll have better luck. Wow, it is awesome that somebody would pay that much for Bert's costume. I bet that person really loves it. Thank you for the Christmas wishes and may your and yours be blessed this season and in the new year to come. Mario : )

Hi Anne - sorry it took so long in answering your message - I haven't been on the computer much lately doing other things, mostly outdoor activities.... Yes, a brutal and disgraceful act against humanity and all that's holy and decent which is the common practice of these radical Muslims that are even murdering their own people by the thousands, innocent woman, old men, children (all Muslims) and though it is a horrible thing what they did to a peace loving Hoosier one must put things in perspective.... There have been tens of thousands of innocent civilians killed in Syria, alone! ISIS is just one radical militant group killing innocent people. I don't think our President has a clue and it will take more than air strikes to stop ISIS which means more American deaths if we put boots on the ground to fight them. When I was a kid I remember WW II and though I didn't really understand the horrors of war, I did know what mothers tears were and the grief of those loved ones looking at the daily casualty list posted at the YMCA bulletin board and my dad running outside to spot and log in any aircraft flying overhead. He had ID aircraft cards and knew every plane by heart both American and enemy aircraft (German and Jap planes)... Two brothers that lived on my street were killed at Pearl Harbor, I knew and understood the grief of war at a very early age and the sacrifices that every civilian citizen dealt with in support of the war effort. My dad was too old to enlist but he had a rare type O blood which was in great demand and he actually was giving more blood than he should have because it was needed so badly and he was a volunteer airplane spotter, also. I didn't know the horror of war because my young mind had no conception of that. Anne, the millions of Jews that were slaughtered like so much cattle, tortured to death in many instances with Iran stating the Holocaust never happen and denying all the evidence, eye witnesses, survivors, documentation and actual photos - how do you deal with people like that??? They are blind from all reality and truth. I was raised up with war! After WW II (which my cousins fought in and my uncle was in the service too, then came Korea, then Vietnam, and then the Gulf Wars, Iraq, Afghanistan, with dozens of smaller battles being fought in South America and around the world by American, British, Australian and Canadian troops in the cause of Freedom. You know, humans are not very kind to one another but we do what what we have to do to preserve life and freedom and without freedom you don't have a life! Anyone that complains about America really, really, needs to take a good look at the rest of the world, countries like North Korea for instance, Africa, India, Pakistan, etc. Americans are spoiled, they need to take an honest look at the world and they may then realize just how lucky we are to live in America. So many of the worlds inhabitants would love to trade places with the very poorest of us Americans and if you don't believe that just look at our borders and those that have drowned trying to reach Florida by boat from Cuba. In the Bible it says, in end times they will make fun of all that is Holy and that is exactly what is going on and that armies will gather around Israel and that's what's happening but speaking of beheadings, Christ will come with a two edged sword and heads will fall and the streets will be running with blood from those that come against the Jews and Justice will prevail only as for me, I am not going to ask for justice, I am going to ask for mercy, I say, come Lord, come. Well, Anne, I didn't address all of your message but did give you some feelings that I have with the beginning of your message. Try not to be upset or discouraged by anything, especially those things out of your control, and remember this, God is still in control and when He gets fed up, heads will roll, blood will flow, and I would definitely want to be on His side when that comes to pass. Hang in there, have a Happy Thanksgiving and it will mean more, sadly knowing, many will not have anything to eat on Thanksgiving Day or on days and I should, indeed, be very thankful. Catch you later, alligator, after while crocodile - ha - remember the days when the news media bashed Elvis Presley for his long sideburns...gosh, things sure have changed - Take care, later Anne - Tom
