Louis Dean and I have spent this entire Friday in Fort Worth and we are spending the night as well!!
It was wonderful to see Lonnie who was visiting with Deanie when we arrived.
A good time for a family pic!
I know you may be thinking I have only one set of clothes lately!
I have just worn them for a few hours each day so they were good to go for this entire Friday!
The purpose of my visit was to see Mother and then go do some shopping for her.
She may not be able to speak clearly, but we DID communicate well enough for me to make a list of the items of clothing she wanted. I told her I would shop all afternoon and then spend the night with Nita and return Saturday with the purchases!
Louis Dean and I took off but our first stop was NOT a clothing store!
Nope! He wanted Golden Corral and that's just what he got!
He takes his food seriously!
THEN I hit the stores and Louis Dean has the patience of Job!
He patiently waited in the car as I went in and out of several stores!
This was part of my haul!
Mother was specific about what she wanted!
She's lost so much weight that she is now in a size 10 and Medium with an occasional Small!
I didn't finish but I did get worn out so I will go back out in the morning to complete my task.
We drove over to Nita and Mike's and she had dinner in the oven and was putting together a peach cobbler with the most delicious crust! We talked and ate and laughed and had some wine and did some research on my siblings family tree and made a few discoveries.
Nita noticed that in the 1930 US Census, that Lloyd Ewing had a whole list of siblings. Apparently his birth father was listed as William Goggin of Chicago, Illinois. The Goggins and the Ewings are listed on the same page of the census. We have some leads to follow as I remember that Lloyd's Ewing brothers were listed as half brothers somewhere. I just can't remember where I saw that.
Research gives me a neck ache so I used one of the back massage things Nita has and then she and I sat on her back patio with a bottle of sparkling peach wine.
It was such a nice day and a truly lovely evening.
Everyone is in bed now and I will be shortly.
Nita's guest room is designed for a good night's sleep.
She has a sleep number bed and black out curtains AND a fan!!
I really needed today and time with my siblings.
I have been feeling my age lately but to Nita, Deanie and Lonnie, I look wonderful.
Bless their hearts! Not one of them can see well! But the point is that, as siblings, we only notice the good things about each other and none of us can see what the world sees.
I love that about us!
