Mama’s Christmas (With a Thank You)

December 30th, 2011 Comments off

We used to send Mama beautiful clothes for birthdays and Christmas.  She always loved to dress up for church and was so appreciative of everything we gave her.

 These days, at 99 and in the nursing home, she spends a lot of time in bed and so  we send her comfy clothes.  

One sister sent tops, another sent new house shoes and I sent pajamas. I’m not sure all she got from everyone else, but they were thoughtful gifts I’m sure.

Jamie took our gifts to Mama one or two a day Christmas week.  He made sure she had something to open and enjoy each day.

 When I talked with Mama she said she had slept in the new pajamas and they  were nice and warm.  

We are limited now to what we can do for our Mother/Grandmother, but we do what we can with love.  Jamie sees to her needs on a daily basis.  He says she still has a wonderful sense of humor and loves to tease him. There are some days when she is not feeling well and I know it is hard for him to see her that way.  All the sisters are most grateful to him for his loving faithfulness to Mama and pray God’s blessings on them both.  Thank you Jamie.

The Hinkle Sisters Have Reunion

December 30th, 2011 1 comment

Thanks to Vernon Eagan for the picture of his wife Jeannie and her sisters at a recent reunion.  I am sure they had a wonderful time being together again.   It is such a blessing for siblings to share their lives as they go through the years. I love seeing families that stay close at heart and enjoy times of reunion.The setting is Vernon and Jeannie’s beautiful home in North Little Rock, Arkansas. I asked Vernon to tell me about the picture:

“The ‘Hinkle’ sisters,  L to R,  are  Delnora and Lawana DeWitt, next is neice Loiselle Tyler, the  daughter of Jeannie’s oldest sister Lois who is now deceased.  Then there is Jeannie and our oldest daughter Pam.  Louise Wicker, another sister was behind me when I took the group picture and I did not bother her to move so she could be included so  I am sending a separate picture of her.” Vernon    

Best wishes to all the Hinkles and Eagans, may God continue to bless you individually, and as a family.

Eagles on the Snake

What a beautiful site…two bald eagles perched above the Snake River on the Washington side just north of Clarkston, Wa.  

My husband and our Park Ranger, Ron, were up the Snake River checking on some of the Corps recreational sites.  Ron took the picture while Bob was driving the Corps pick up.

 Thanks Pam,  and thanks to Ranger Ron for giving us permission to post this cool picture.

A man mentioned to his landlord about the tenants in the apartment over his.

“Many a night they stamp on the floor and shout till midnight.”

When the landlord asked if it bothered him, he replied, “Not really, for I usually stay up and practice my trumpet till about that time most every night anyway.”

A man calls home to his wife and says, “Honey, I’ve been asked to go fishing at a big lake up in Canada with my boss and several of his friends. We’ll be gone for a week. This is a good opportunity for me to get that promotion I’ve been wanting, so would you please pack me enough clothes for a week and set out my rod and tackle box? We’re leaving from the office and I will swing by the house to pick my things up. Oh! And please pack my new blue silk pajamas.”

The wife thinks this sounds a little fishy but being a good wife she does exactly what her husband asked. The following weekend he comes home a little tired but otherwise looking good.

The wife welcomes him home and asks if he caught many fish. He says, “Yes! Lots of Walleye, some Blue gill, and a few Pike. But why didn’t you pack my new blue silk pajamas like I asked you?”

The wife replies, “I did, they were in your tackle box.”
