Another year has past and I will be turning 82 by years end. I continue to live at an apartment at the old Blair Central School that my sons David and Stephen attended. My apartment has no steps, three blocks from downtown and across the street from the Court House. I belong to the YMCA and exercise on their treadmill about four times a week. The only problem I have had was in March, I had a bleeding problem in the back of my eye but it has not recurred.

Last January, February and March, I again spent at South Padre Island, Texas. On the way home, I spent a few days at Branson, Missouri. In July, I took a flight to Chicago for Zackary's 17th birthday. I was with both Stephen and David's families at my sisters for Thanksgiving. This will be the sixth winter that I have spent at South Padre Island since Lila past away.

Stephen, Kelly and family live in Chicago. Zachary is a Senior and trying to decide which college to attend next fall. I am amazed how tall Zachary and Anna have grown. Anna is in the 8th grade.

David, Cindy and family continue to live near Blair on an acreage where Dianne and I lived. Martha, Kathryn and Paul continue to grow and are getting tall. They are busy with school, church and 4H. Martha is in the 7th grade and I watched her march in the Nebraska City parade with the band. Kathryn is in the 6th grade, volunteers at the Blair Animal Shelter once a week and helps clean their cages. Paul is in the 3rd grade. I attend the musicals, band concerts and other school events. David now has an all electric car which he drives to Bellevue Nebraska each work day.

Lila's son Corey and Sarah live at Superior, Nebraska. Lila's daughter Suzanne and Granddaughter Kirsten live at Lincoln, Nebraska.
