Now that the weekend is here, I hope I can get my days straight! Vacation always messes me up. lol

I started the day by heading down to church and joining the men's group for breakfast. Wednesday night my husband invited the church bookkeeper and she said she would only join them if I did. Well, I went as well as another spouse but Terri stayed in her office working. They did have her fix a plate of food, though. One of our members was talking about the history of the church-he has been a member since the church was built more than 80 yrs ago and he had a lot of pictures.

This afternoon I got a call from my dad informing me that his 95 yr old brother had died. We knew it was coming as he had stopped eating and drinking anything and told his daughter he didn't want anything done as he was ready. He hasn't had much of a life for the last 5-10 yrs so we can all understand. This will be hard on my dad who just celebrated his 90th birthday as now all of his older brothers are gone. He does have an older sister-she's 97 now. He also has a younger half brother and half sister. I know I have been very lucky having my parents and other family for so long and really can't imagine life without them here.
