So I will see if I can come up with anything. Quiet and cold. Glad I don’t live in the path of the snow and cold. We have enough cold to go around. We saw the first people that came over to look at the house next door. It was a black couple and a little boy about 6 or 7. They drive an older car like ours and I have a hunch that Gary will ask a quite a bit of rent for it. He put a lot of work into that house and will have to recoup it but I think he knows he can’t do it over night. We had 2 black families over there since we lived here. One worked out very well, but she didn’t stay very long. She had 2 little girls and they loved to catch me out in the yard. They peppered me with questions. I was planting some flowers and they wanted to know if they could come over and play in the dirt with me. Neither were school age. The others were in and out before you knew it. It is hard to say when it will be rented but it sure looks nice compared to before. All is well as far as my daughter understanding about Christmas. She has been having it every year since Alan died. She is getting burned out and she loves doing it but as she said it is getting harder and harder. Ron and Kathy are working furiously to get their basement redone since the gutters overflowed while they were in Arkansas last summer. Ron got the mud cleaned up and they put fans down there and got everything dry and then figured there was no hurry to redo it. SOOO, the unexpected came up. Christmas came or is coming, soon and everyone Is invited for the 22nd. More tomorrow, maybe.
