For the first time in many years all of the Thomas siblings were together again.   It was a wonderful experience.  The above picture was taken in Sept., 2016 in Paris, Texas.  The picture below was made while we lived on Great Lakes Naval Base in Ill. in the late 1950's, probably 1957 or '58.  (I copied the picture from an album page, hence, the star and background page pattern.)

I'm Back !

I would say I am speechless but, obviously not.  I am almost mute with excitement though.  My brother, Leo, has given me a laptop which I am using at this very moment!  I can now blog and share my life with you all and, of course, with " Big Brother " again.  As soon as I am able to figure out how to transfer photos from my camera I will do so.  I am sure my daughter, Anna, will be most willing to try to educate me on the workings of this wonderful machine.  I will be back very soon.

Hello Again!

I have moved and there have been many changes and challenges since my last post.  I am still vertical, most of the time, so that is a good thing.  The news is not all rosey though. Since my move was into a senior housing community I was forced to re-home two of my pets.   It has been a grievous process, to say the least. I had to find a new family for Cyrus and was able to do so under very serendipitous conditions through Jane Doe  and  Cyrus'  veterinarian.
Since I haven't access to the Internet at this time my posts are very limited. I do not want this blog to die so I am going to post as I am able until I can bring it back to life and share my life with you all.  I will try to work something out so we can catch up soon. Until then know you are not forgotten.

A beautiful girl with flowers in her hair...

A relaxed interlude rocking on the porch..

The crab apple tree is in bloom again, alive with the sweet scent of her blossoms and loud with the buzz of honey bees in flight.  
Climbing trees
SPRING HAS ARRIVED.

One day last week the children and I enjoyed a day at the children's museum and one of our state's national parks.
