Laura came home to visit her mother last night and then took her father back home this morning so Landen could have his car here. Laura brought cookies for everyone, it was so nice to see her. Then early this morning we had to say good bye to Both Laura and Joe. I always have hated good byes. I went away to High School. My parents drove me to the school and I would stay there until the next Holiday. I loved going to school and could not wait until I got there. When I got to the dormitory I would run off and find out who was back we all had so much news to tell each other and before I knew it my parents were headed back home and I was crushed. I wanted one more hug, I would be mad at myself for not visiting with my parents just a little longer. There was something heart breaking about seeing their car going out of the driveway. There was something so final about it and I couldn’t call them back. Things have not changed since then. Each good bye makes me die just a little and wish I could do over the last half hour and hold each one just once more. I know it is crazy cause I love Hello’s and without the good byes there would be no Hellos and life gets boring without them. I love it when Joe comes home, everyone runs to meet him, even the dog but I hate the good byes.
Today Luke got up early to start and we started school early. We got so much done today and I got so tired I had to take a nap this afternoon. Then we went back to it. We ended with a game of Spit and Malice, we played one this morning also, Luke won that one and I won the one in the afternoon but not by as much as he had beaten me so he is still ahead of me on the score card. Luke has to keep the score but that is not the reason he is ahead!
Have a great day too tired to talk anymore. I have my songs almost done but found two more groups I need to get songs from The Weavers and Pete Seeger. It was the song “Good Night Irene” that I had forgotten and when I looked up who sang that I found these two. I don’t know how I could have forgotten them. I wonder how many other’s I forgot, couldn’t be too many. Thanks Nancy and Rosemary for the info on Kris Kristoffenson. His was one of the first I thought of but I didn’t know his wife’s name. I do love many of his song. I love “Just the other side of Nowhere “and “Sunday Morning Coming down”. Joe remembered “Darby’s Castle” but I already had that one cause I love it too plus several others.
