Thank You!!

Thank you so much, three of my friends either looked up “The Dash” or already knew about it and I thank you so much for giving me the link:www.linda-ellis.com. This is the home of “The Dash” it gives you the poem and all about writing it. You really should go see it. The poem was written in 1996 I guess I have had my head in the sand not to have heard of it before but at least I know it now and can enjoy reading it.
Another beautiful day today. Sunday is clean the house day and write letters We got both things done and I got most of the Christmas card written too so it was a good day. Patty just stopped by for a visit. That is the best thing about Florida, we get to have the kids in for a short visit often. We are so lucky to have such great kids.
Thank you Holly for catching us up on your move, now I need your new address so I can send out the Christmas cards. That is the trouble with mother-in-laws, they always want one more thing, be thankful that you only get one of them at a time. Have a great day!

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
