    Best gift I ever received was a Swiss army knife (one with a scissors and nail file included) I use the knife almost everyday! I got it for valentines. I'm going to get one for my daughter soon, I wish i'd have thought of it sooner for this year though... still might!


    Beautiful Roos!

    Sorry to hear the other Grandpa is ill! It's very sad. My father died at 62, way too young. Hope he can pull through! Prayers being sent.

    Ralphie, sorry to read about your grandkids other grandpa. 62 is way too young, and it seems from what you wrote that he is a classy guy. My own father died at 63 from cancer and I thought that he had lived a good long life. I was 30 at the time. It was only later that I came to appreciate how much life is to be lived after the age of retirement, so I took no chances and retired early.
    I read a saying the other day which goes like this " may you live as long as you want and want to live as long as you do". This is my wish to all.

    Dang, Sounds like a great store, I wish I knew how to get to Monticello. I think it is South East of here about 1100 miles.

    Excellent saying, I had not heard it before.

    You did right, too many people work only to die two weeks after they retire.



    Thanks to all for the thoughts and prayers.
