With the end of January, a lot of birthdays happen, all at once, almost. On January 26th, Dutchess has a birthday. On the 28th, Cousin Billy. (I was at dinner with Don and Nancy when we left Los Gringos Loco, this LAST 28th, Nancy called Cousin Bill and I really do have a hankering for a trip to Laughlin, NV)
Afterwards, Valerie and I visited with Don and Nancy and I was struck with her memory preceding mine. Nancy really ‘loved’ Bernice’s house and remembered visiting there for Christmas when I was very young. She said, “I want to visit that house and walk around on my knees!” I know exactly what she means. that would have been totterer hight back that number of years. I remember seeing scared faces from that buffet, like my sister Gloria’s face, finding me up on that buffet, while baby sitting, or, Duchesses’ begging me to come down from the uncomfortable top of that buffet, before another baby sitter found us!
It was such a Grand house!
Dutchess, Bix and Nancy where there before we can possibly remember! I do wish you would make time to come out west and visit your relatives.
And then on the 29th, Allen Wheland has HIS birthday. January is such a very good month for birthdays.
