While I have a minute to blog in quiet (except for the radio on in the background) I thought I would share something I found in our local newspaper "The Squeak." There was a couple that owned our house for many, many years before we bought it in July 2006. They ran this farm until about 15 years ago. From what we can gather, they lived in this house for at least 50 years. The husband died in this house sometime in 2006. (My kids think that is the best thing ever. "So mom, which room to you think he died in?") He was in his nineties. I know the wife went to a nursing home when her husband passed, but I hadn't heard anything about her in over a year and finally stopped getting X-mas cards (with our address) from their family and friends.
Well apparently the wife is still alive and doing well, at 97! This was her ad in the paper this week.
I didn't send her a card, but I was happy to hear that she is doing well. This is one little newspaper that won't be discontinued for an online version... I hope.
