My Mom . . .

 I decided to take these next three weeks of serious social distancing 
and go through the house room by room, 
drawer, cupboard, closet, shelve and “clean house!”  
So far I have one closet, a three shelf cupboard 
and three drawers of another kitchen cupboard sorted, cleaned 
and I have one basket full of of “stuff!”  

In my sorting I found this picture of my mom from the local Hampton Iowa Chronicle.  
She was being featured in a local artist piece.  
Love this picture, she looks so cute in her blouse and skirt, little tie.  
My mom loved to sew and made many of her own skirts, jackets, blouses.  

Happy I found this tucked away in my piles of SAVED!  
Also clipped on to this article was an announcement about me.  
Remember when local newspapers would sometimes have bits of info about local residents?  
I remember every time we went “back home” to Iowa from Wisconsin 
there was always a mention of our visiting my mom and dad.  
Sometimes announcing what we had for dinner too! 
Oh my the memories and stories!  


My dad, mom, brother Terry and I all graduated from 
University of Wisconsin at Platteville.  
My mom was born  in 1910, died in 1996.  
My dad was born in 1910 and died in 1978.  
My brother Terry lives in Cedar Falls, Iowa.

I am thankful for my family and our life together.  
This is a time when each of us reflect, remember, think back.  
My grandchildren love hearing family stories.  
Dinners together, sitting around the table, the stories happened, traditions were born.  Remember and share your stories.
Happy Thanksgiving 🍁🦃🍁

Wishing you, Mr. Irish & your family a HAPPY THANKSGIVING, Lynne. Since the virus has cancelled our get-together plans, it will be just hubby & me as it was when we started out 61-years ago. I'm so grateful for him! Hugs to you, Lynne.

Happy Thanksgiving week, Lynne. These clippings are total treasures and I'm so glad you have them saved. Slip them into archival page protectors and a binder notebook to save for your family so they aren't accidentally discarded sometime!

Hello everyone, Happy Thanksgiving!!!
I thought my life had become meaningless and had nothing to offer any more as I had HIV, the symptoms became very severe and bold which made my family and friends run away from me and abandoned me, so they won't get infected. I gave up everything, my hope, dreams, vision, and job because doctors told me there's no cure. I consumed so many antiviral drugs, but they never cured me but hid the symptoms inside me, It was worse. I was desperate to find a solution to this horrible and deadly virus inside me. I made online research on herbal remedies for HIV/Aids cure when I came across testimonies of some people on how DR JAMES uses his herbal mix medicine to Cured them of MENINGITIS, DENGUE, SCHIZOPHRENIA, BIPOLAR DISORDER, ALZHEIMER'S DISEASES, UNDERACTIVE THYROID, HIV/AIDS. HERPES VIRUS. CANCER, ALS, STROKE, HEPATITIS B, DIABETES, FIBROID, MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES, LUPUS, SKIN CANCER. OVARIAN CANCER, INFERTILITY, GET YOUR LOVER BACK. CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES, LUNG DISEASES. I never believed at first and thought it was a joke but later, I decided to contact him on his details provided. When I messaged him we talked, and he told me how his herbs and root medicine works Which were all okay with me. He sent me his herbal mix medicine and told me the usage and I should go for a test after 1 week of drinking his herbal medicine Within 7 days of his herbal medications the symptoms disappeared one week after the usage of the herbal medicine. I went for a test Lo and behold I was tested HIV negative by the same Doctor Who tested me HIV positive earlier. Thank you DR James for saving my life and I'll keep telling the world about you so anyone suffering from all kinds of health challenges should reach Dr. James for he has got the solution for a quick recovery If you're out there going through pains, rejection and facing any kind of health challenges Worry no more and contact DR James via. He's a good man, and he will surely help you.
