2019-05-25 to 2019-05-27 – Memorial Day Weekend

We returned from Indian Wells on Saturday mid day.  I visited my mother in Artesia, and had nice Happy Hours on the front porch back in Redlands.  While we were Airstreaming over the past 2 1/2 months we have several new neighbors.  We chatted briefly with them and we hope to get better acquainted upon our return in Mid-June…

We received several nice photos from our grandchildren’s visit to Griffith Park and the remnants of the old LA Zoo…

Sunday we enjoyed church at The River CRC, we had a relaxing afternoon, then we had a very enjoyable evening dining out with Rodger and Cyndi, neighbors who often help our son while we are away… walking the dog, picking him up when he falls, and cleaning up broken glass… The only down side was that it was raining, so we were unable to walk to the restaurant…

On Monday, Memorial Day, we were visited by The Thundering Herd.  The weather cooperated to the point that we could hang out in the back yard on the deck… (The deck was finished in October, but it has been too cold to use it until today…)

Lynda took the kids for a walk…

The kids built a tower with blocks, with only a little help from me…

I was able to get reacquainted with the lovely Evelyn…

By early evening they piled into the car and headed home.  We cleaned up the house and prepared to fly tomorrow…

And an enjoyable time was had by all…

2018-11-14 – Marie Terhorst – Birthday Number 97

November 13 was my mother’s 97th birthday. If I get my math right, this means she was born in 1921, the same year Aline Barnsdall fired Frank Lloyd Wright during the construction of her Hollyhock House in Hollywood…

She still lives independently in her cottage at the Artesia Christian Home, as she has for the past 13 years…

On Sunday and Monday this week she was visited by four of her great-grandchildren:

At last count, she has 5 children, 4 grand children,  10 great-grandchildren, and 4 great-great-grandchildren (and maybe one in escrow?  I’m not trying to start rumors here, but I think that is what I was told…)  If I didn’t quite get these numbers right, forgive me – they told me there would be no math in retirement…

I stopped by on the 14th, because I was at the Happiest Place on Earth on the 13th…

We went to lunch at the place where Don Jose’s used to be…

I read her all the birthday cards she received…

And an enjoyable time was had by all…
