Our daughter-in-law had a birthday a few days ago.  We wish her a Happy Belated Birthday! I have said before how much we love her. She is a sweetheart.

A Visit From Silas and Hollie

Last week Sy and Hollie came to visit for a few days.  It has been a few years since they have been here.  We were able to go out to the lake house one day for a party, we swam at John and Casey's, had dinner at a few restaurants, spent some time in Grapevine and more. Sy grilled for us one night. In my book he is the "grill master."  Hollie introduced us to pineapple upside down pancakes. Yum! It's pretty nice when you have guests who cook for you.  We used to live close to Sy and Hollie in the Chicago area and even though we have been here in Texas since '89 I really miss having them near by.

Happy Birthday Joy! Happy Birthday Gill!

Yesterday was Joy's birthday and it was also my friend Gill's birthday.  We have been having all kinds of celebrations lately with birthdays and family and friends visiting.  I have really enjoyed it.

My sister Bev and son-in-law Rob shared the same birthday this past Saturday.  We wish the best to both of them. They are both on my list of favorites and I think on the list of favorites of the people who know them.  Bev is a very bubbly person and you couldn't ask for a better son-in-law than Rob is to me.

Happy Birthday to My Sister Bev and Son-in-law Rob!

Last week my cousin Mark visited with his family.  I don't see Mark very often so we had a lot to catch up on.  We all had a wonderful time just getting to know one another. It is strange how quickly time goes by.  We get busy and before you know it years have past.  The last time I saw Mark with his kids was about 10 years ago.  His kids were very young.  Somehow time stands still when you haven't seen someone. For instance, Mark's kids were still young in my mind. In reality they are young adults now.  You can't make up for the time lost but it is never too late to make a better effort to stay in touch.

Rest in Peace Millie Philips

Millie, (on the right) went to heaven today after a long fight with Cancer and heart trouble.  I knew her through our mutual friend Helen. (on the left)  Millie was one of the sweetest people I have ever met.  She was full of love, vitality with the most bubbling personality.  She will be missed.  RIP Millie.

Last week our friend Tamara (like a daughter) had a new baby boy.  They named him Lake. Lake looks much like his sister Sydney although babies seem to change their looks several times as they are growing. Our Congratulations to Tamara, Bill and her family.

Bob also celebrated his birthday.  It's funny how birthdays become even more valuable the older you get especially if you have had a severe health threat.  Bob is doing pretty good.  I will soon post some pictures and videos of his progress.  Even after almost two years from his stroke he still regains the use of what may seem to one to be small but to him is huge.  These things have been through so much hard work with therapists and at the gym. So, Happy Birthday Bob!  You are such an inspiration to me.

It was Bob's Birthday Last Week
