Will start this post with a picture of my gorgeous double petunia basket that I got for Mother's Day. Probably have posted it before, but the blossoms are just beautiful.
Yesterday was a very good day, as I use as a title for this post. A couple from Iowa that were a big part of our life in the 1950's and who I have never lost touch with came to see me. We had not seen each other for over twenty years and it was so very good to be with them again. Ray and I spent lots and lots of years square dancing from very early marriage. When we were transferred to Ft. Madison, Iowa, a group of the Santa Fe people from both Chillicothe and Marceline, Mo., got a club going. Our caller came from Burlington, Iowa, and couples from there joined in - Garnett and Harold were among those dancers. Over time, there were four couples that we would dance with a tip or two each time and what fun we had. We also went to each other's homes afterwards and spent lots of other time together playing cards, etc. What I find so amazing is how the years seem to melt away and you pick right up where you left off. The three of us are the only ones left of our "square" - we had such a delightful time getting caught up on our families and old friends. That was such a great time in my life. Had I had my "druthers" I think I would have been very happy just to stay in Ft. Madison. However, that was not to be and life has been very good.
How about a couple of pictures of my flowers?
