Hi Gary: glad to hear you are enjoying retirement. I remember those Oklahoma days of winter and longing for that "green" look again.

Here in the Pacific Northwest, we are green all year long and I have even had to have my lawn mowed twice...already! The Olympic Peninsula is a special place in my heart with Port Townsend having views from anywhere of water, the Cascade Mtn. range and the Olympic Mtn. range. I spend as much time out of doors as possible, even in the winter months. Believe it or not we have less rain here in P.T. than anywhere in Oklahoma.

However, I will always miss the area around Tulsa and the awakening of spring and how my eyes used to "gulp" in the lovely green.

Have a great summer, with blessings for wellness for you and your family.

David, I have only been to Long Island once, believe it or not to visit a waiter Judy and I met at Patsy's in tha city. We hit it off and invited us to his home on Long Island, beautiful place! waitin tables sometimes pays off better'n ya think. I have a grand dotter at Cornell, and she has her aunt, my daughter the general manager uv tha Marriott to lean on support from family. My lady an I love Ithaca and tha fanger lake area. I wuz a bad poker player, never had enuff money to be in a big bad game, but I did have a good stick at Breezy's, spent more time there than in school. Turns out I was deslecksick, so I didn't learn like other people, but found out other people didn't learn like me, it worked out, Judy and I built a succesful business, sold it after 35 years and traveled the world for 12 years before I lost her in'17. Tha Tumbleweed description you used to describe yourself iz classic. You seemed to Tumble into a classic, fantastic life, way to go, jus sayin, Rex

Glen was my banker for about 25 years when I lived overseas. I got to know him well. A great guy. I appreciated his calm style and honesty. I will miss him.

Our Band of Will Roger Ropers of 1958 is shrinking and now Bette Lee Jones is part of that Heavenly Tribe.

 

Bette Lee and I grew up together in the same church, went to church camp together in our Junior and Senior high school years and in general, caused a lot of fun mayhem.  She and I spent a lot of time together horseback riding, with her being the teacher and me being a very willing student, wanting to learn all I could about equines, etc.  We more than once got into trouble wherever we were, playing practical jokes on each other and other not so appreciative individuals!  She had such a tender heart for all creatures and critters and went way out of her way to give comfort and support to all in the animal and human world.

 

Zany and loving was Bette Lee Jones and I will always love and miss her!  She and I reconnected in 2010 at our 50th class reunion.  She invited me to stay with her for 3 days during that time.  Every night after the activities of those days, we sat in the middle of my bed, giggling and reminiscing past days, etc.  It was a few years after 2010 that I suddenly stopped hearing from her and heard that she was suffering from Alzheimer's Disease.  I am all too familiar with that disease, and let her be at peace wherever her brain could find it without me trying to get her to remember what her brain had already forgotten.

 

To Bette Lee, I Salute You with Love and to her caregivers and family.....I understand about the "longest goodbye ever!"
