Saturday 9: Backfield in Motion (1969)
1) This week's Saturday 9 has a football theme because there's a big game Sunday. Will you be watching?
I am not a sports buff and if we have the game on, it's
usually just for the commercials. However, our football fanatic son
will be here on Sunday, so we will probably watch the game more closely than
we ever have since the last time the 49ers played.
I haven't decided yet. There will only be 3 of us and I
don't want to overdo. I will probably make a slow cooker chili and
then some finger foods.
We usually have something with avocado in it nearly every
day. I don't think I've eaten avocado in 2 days, but will have it in a
Canton, no, but we've been to Cincinnati and to a town I
forget the name of, but where Jeri did summer stock for two years.
Also to Lancaster, OH to visit
I can't think of anything.
Ned started keeping an extensive journal about his father's health, all the doctor's appointments, etc., which each of our guest caregivers are adding to. Because of my "whatever it was," I'm kind of not included in the care, but it did make me feel like chopped liver when someone wrote that Walt was looking forward to "alone time" -- when I would be here!
7) This week's featured duo, Mel and Tim, are cousins from Mississippi. Tell us about one of your cousins.
That's a subject that gives me a pang in my heart. Two
of my cousins, Peach and Kathy were my good friends and we met with my
mother one weekend a month, for many years, to visit, play cards, drink,
eat, and spend the night. It was my favorite time of the month.
Kathy died of COPD in 2011 and Peach died of cancer a couple of years
later...and, of course, my mother now has Alzheimers and barely remembers
either of them. In total, I have 32 cousins, but those two were the
two I was close to.
It is much easier to forgive than to forget.
We probably donate more books than anything else, though if I
get ambitious and do a lot of closet cleaning, there might be clothes are
