Nov 19,2009

Hi faithful blog viewers -

Well we did it. Made it to our 50th year wedding anniversary. (nov 8th) We opted out of a big to do. Neither of us wanted it so we didn't do it and we are very comfortable about out decision. Had a family dinner with out kids and also celebrated Andy's 10th at the same time.

My best friend from High school and my best friend from college both phoned us last week and it was great to hear their voices and catch up on their news and reflect on many wonderful memories.

We are doing about the same. Some good days and some bad ones. Get to church weekly and usually one or two outings a week. Usually see the young grand kids about once a week. Sunday heading for Christy and Gregs for a Sunday dinner and to a concert at the college on Monday night.

We continue to be thankful for God's care shown to us by family and friends and my my caregiver.

Barb has been reading more than I (you know - football season) but the books one or the other of us have read include:
Mosiac - a chronicle of generations
Count of Monte Crisco book and video
Sense of the World - blind man who traveled the world
Rebecca - Book and Video
Jane Eyre - book and movie

by Anne Rice: (secular writer of the Vampire series who has recently become a Christian )
Christ the Lord
Out of Egypt
Road to Cana
Out of Darkness

Book Thief
Same Kind of Different as me (THE BEST OF THE LOT IN OUR OPINION)
Finding Calcutta - Mary Poplin (very good)
Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society
Still Alice
Strength in What Remains Tracy Kidder
The Help

Continue to recomend the Video - Doubt and also liked the almost three hour video -
The Tunnel

We have a new renter in the barn and are seeking a new renter for the basement as our renter of four years has bought a condo and in the process of moving out.

I have several friends who visit me almost every week.

Spend lots of time watch news on our computer.

If you have questions about us - just ask.

God's blessings on you.

Don (and Barb)
