Blanche on the Mend 01/31/05
After over six months of ciatic pain, Blanche is on the mend and appears to be finally getting some relief. Woking with a chiropractor, she is slowly beginning to feel better. Still, there will be a period of physical therapy for her. She will be working on strenghtening the back muscles and getting more mobility.

John's Pick 01/18/05
John had his pick of Spring work on Monday. The selection of available work was better than expected. John was able to continue with Tuesdays and Wednesday off and working nights.

Thanks to All 01/09/05
I would like to say thank you to all who have made my birthday special. Thanks so much for all the cards, letters and phone calls. It was very nice hearing from each of you. I sure enjoyed my birthday present, a new MP3 player. It has a 1 Gig memory card and can hold 27 hours of music. Cheryl had a German chocolate birthday cake waiting for me when I came home from work. It was a GREAT day!

Doug and Joni Visit 01/05/05
Doug and Joni arrived at Nana's about 9:30 p.m. on New Year's Eve. Doug, Joni and Barb did the tour of the surrounding area on New Year's Day and then had a champagne toast before a great ham dinner, including blackeye peas and collard greens. This was a different dinner, but oh so good with the mashed potatoes. On Sunday morning, everyone went out to breakfast then drove to Tyler, Texas. The trip was to look at the historic section of the town and some of the great old homes. Dinner Sunday was at Vaughn's on the lake. Doug and Joni left by 9 a.m. on Monday to take their rental car back and then to the airport for their trip back to Atlanta.
