I can't believe it has been so long that I have posted on my blog. Guess I forgot I had one. YEP!!! I am getting old and forgetful. Yes, it is true. To tell you the truth, I don't know what I am doing most of the time. I know I thought to myself last evening that I should telephone my two daughters in Indiana. They probably think they have been orphaned. Shame on me!! I should set myself a routine to call them every week. Mother called me or I called her about every Sunday. Sometimes I called more than once a week. I kept pretty good track of what they were doing or where they were going when they were out of state and in Minnesota or Texas. I sure do miss them. At this time of year I could always count on them to come over before a big family holiday dinner to come over and sit at my kitchen table to clean, slice, and dice food which was always a chore when preparing a holiday dinner or family gathering. As I am writing this, I am watching Food Network. I love cookbooks and tv cooking programs. Paula Dean is cooking right now. Her food looks great, but she looks like she had a hard night. Good thing, no one can see me or they would tell you I look like heck! I think my hair needs a trim. I do not take the time to look in the mirror any more. What's the use? Forty five years ago I looked good enough for Bob to pester me about marrying him, asking me at every opportunity, until I finally said , "Yes." Then the night before we were married, he kidnapped me, so that I would sleep on the couch at his and his mother's apartment, to make certain I would show up at our wedding. Yep! That is a true story. We celebrated our forty fifth wedding anniversary this past July. Can't believe our marriage has lasted so long, after I tried to run away from it so many times. Yep! A true story, altho Bob doesn't like for me to say it, but he kept after me until I said "I do!" in from of a minister. LOL!!!
