I am in Hamilton staying overnight as I have an appointment in the morning here.
Saw my fave Aunt this morning, then it was off to my first Tai Chi class, which I loved, then motored to Hamilton.
Visiting with my newly returned from Hawaii family. It’s only been four days so they are still sporting nice tans. The time zone adjustments took a bit of time but everyone seems back to normal.
Frannie gets a little confused sometimes and will think Jack is still alive (he has been gone more than a decade) and then when she remembers she grieves anew. These days she is pretty good so all conversation is just nice memories. We were talking about Jack’s fave hobby which was fishing. Now Fran cannot abide anything that comes from the sea, especially if it was once alive and is now dead in preparation for consumption.
She never belittled his passion and would properly ooooo and ahhhh over the catch of the day. They respected each other’s feelings. Thank goodness Jack was an A1 cook and we would feast mightily.

When my youngest son thought I was born in Saskatchewan and not Toronto, it made me realize. NOBODY IS LISTENING! Except you, gentle reader. Thank you.
Write it down darling girl and then they will know for all time!
You got no snow like us we go nowhere till it clears as its dangerous on the roads
so far it is a pretty snow free winter but it will be awful in the spring when the ground and well water is low because there is no snow to melt
Wonderful to have a FAVE auntie.. c
Ah it is Celi it is
It’s such a treat to hear Aunt Fran’s stories. Brings to mind stuff I used to do with my family when I was much younger. I should write down the stories my mother told me before I follow her path down the rabbit hole.
Now that is a great idea, writing down those stories! Do it! Do it! Your children will be the ones to benefit
