Blogging since 4-27-08. This is my journal. A place to share bits of me, my family and life and other things of interest to me, and I hope to you. A place to meet new friends and bond with old. A place to share my thoughts and projects in sewing, beading and needlework. It only takes a moment to say hello!
We have called Terry's dad Biggie Papa since my Sister-in-law's grandsons (her son Dave's sons) gave him that name when they were small. It was their way of noting that he was their Great Grandpa. You may remember that we live in a neighborhood that is three blocks wide and each road is 3 blocks long. Most of Terry's family live in this neighborhood. So when Biggie Papa stopped driving, Dave gave him his golf cart to use so that Papa could go to visit and site see whenever he wanted. It's tricked out with bigger tires, a stereo and custom step up. Last week he came for a visit and wanted to take us for a ride around the "block". Terry's dad has numerous cancers at 91 chose not to undergo chemo treatment, though he did have radiation treatment that kept it in check for quite a while. He has taken a turn for the worse and wanted all of his family to come and visit him, but not all in the same day because that would be way to much company at the same time. I have a great respect and love for my father-in-law. I thank him all the time for raising such a wonderful, loving man. He thanks me in return for taking such good care of his boy. He says when you get old you think about things and he is happy that Terry and I found each other. I'm going to miss this man so much.
