goes on. Not as smoothly and a lot more lonely. Sometimes the emptiness of the house comes crashing down and I have to leave for a while. I thank the Good Lord for family and friends that take some of the loneliness away.
Our daughter Laura comes down and spends the weekend with me as often as she can. We try to go fishing every time she is here. We both enjoy the sport of fishing. We both believe in catch and release.
Son Lance, Laura and myself journeyed to Port Aransas, on Oct 16th, and went out on a charter that night. We didn’t have a lot of luck that evening, but we did catch a few. The following morning we took another charter and went about 15 or so miles out and tied up to a oilrig stand pipe. There we commenced to catch fish. We caught quite a few sharks, some snapper and pompano. We traveled back to home that evening, tired but happy with the catch.
Quilting: I don’t quilt, but our daughter Christy does. She has the HQ Sixteen (Susan’s long arm quilter) there with her in Wisconsin. Christy plans to finish the quilts that Susan had started, and to continue to quilt charity quilts, as Susan was doing. I know that she will do an excellent job with the HQ Sixteen. Christy had also taken part of Susan’s fabric stash to use on the quilts. Some individuals had suggested that I sell the fabric. I want Susan’s fabric to go to the needy in the form of donated quilts.
Our friend Wanda, who some of you are familiar with, also has taken some of the fabric to donate to quilters who are doing charity quilts. I think that is an excellent use for the fabric.
Kitties: I will admit that in a lot of instances the cats make life interesting at times. FraidyCat, I’m convinced has it in his mind that if he can just get into the bedroom, he will find Susan. He would spend time snuggling with
Susan after he was fed. The Brat Pack (Snuggles, Spooky, Shadowfire, and Lil Pup (Scamp)), will all four get into my lap while I’m sitting in the recliner. All of them, with the exception of Shadowfire spend a lot of time outside. Muckley’s Muckley and Blaze still wants to keep me all to himself. Apache’s coat has grown back, the sores are gone and she has gained some weight. The Vet’s are all amazed that she has done so well. Susan was convinced that if we continued to watch what Apache came in contact with, and keep her on healthy can food only, she would recover. Susan believed and she was right.
I do apologize for taking so long to post again. I know that Susan could say things better, and make it more interesting, but I will do my best. I thank all of you who support this blog. May the Good Lord bless all of you. He has certainly blessed me.
