I am taking time to write this entry while the washing machine is churning away.
This is the very first time I have ever written in a journal!! I'm not really sure I have anything of interest to offer you but I am going to try to keep this blog as up to date as I can.
This is a photo of Dottie Jean and me.
It is Sunday afternoon and I have been at the computer most of the day so far and I guess I will be for the rest of the day off and on. I am slightly addicted to my PC, if you ask my husband he would disagree and say I am totally addicted!!
Let me tell you a few things about myself. I am married to my best friend and have been for a third of a century, but that doesn't make me OLD. I was 18 when I got married, so you could say that I was a child bride. I live in a rural setting 40 minutes from a city but if you looked at the view from the house you would think we were days from civilization. That is just how we like it, no neighbours or traffic to annoy us. We have lived here for nearly 20 years and won't move out until we are carried out. We both commute to work each day which is an effort but it is well worth the travelling when we come home to our little piece of paradise. We have 2 sons, ages 28 & 30, they both have long time partners. My youngest son has a daughter, named Ivy, who will turn 9 in September. Yes, your calculations are right, my son was 18 when his daughter was born, so I guess that makes him a child father!! My eldest son will be a Dad for the first time in early August, we are all looking forward to having a baby around us again and Ivy is very excited because she is going to be a cousin for the first time.
The washing machine has done its work so that must mean that I have to stop rambling and hang out the clothes.
Now that wasn't too difficult at all to write, I wonder how difficult it was for you to read.
