Remember, folks: whenever a woman says "die for me because you are a man," just look her in the eye and say "my body, my choice."

Family Time

Corporal's leave is just about over, and his presence has been an immeasurable comfort to me.  The most difficult work (emotionally and physically) is done and I'm left with a neat, comprehensive list of tasks to keep me busy and focused until I sell the house and move.

Today we did a little family history.  My dad was born not far from here and recently he emailed me the address of his childhood home.  We looked it up on Google Maps and went for a drive:

These trees are in the back yard of the house across the street.  I wonder if he enjoyed their shade back in the early thirties...
Kinda cool.

(Any idea how the heck I managed to change the date on these photos?  I sure don't have a clue!)


  1. It's interesting to see your dad's childhood home. I never got to see the places where my parents grew up. It's great that your son is so helpful and he's such a comfort to you.


  2. Seeing the environment our parent knew and what shaped them has always interested me.

  3. Beautiful home. I am glad you got a chance to see your family history.

  4. Very cool. Hope you are doing well. Think about you often. Beautiful house. Hugs!
