Happy New Year



This has been a good and exciting year for me. I am still alive and as well as can be expected. I am turning 85 at the end of this year. The covet19 scare prevented me from going to South Padre Island this past winter but I have been well. I now have my two covet19 shots and do not want to just set at home the rest of my life.

This January, February and March, I plan on spending it at South Padre Island, Texas. David and his family are going to go with me and help me drive my car to Texas for this winter. SpaceX has a space port at Boca Chica near South Padre Island and one can go over and watch them build and fire spaceships. They build the spaceships out in the open and not in a building, so one can watch the progress.

This summer I tried to get out as much as possible by going over to the DeSoto Wild Life Refuged, walking on their trails or going down to the Missouri River and watching the water go by. It has become more difficult for me to walk any great distance.

My two sons (David and Stephen) are still able to work at home online ( David at Blair, NE and Stephen at Brookfield, Il). They may both have to start driving to work sometime next year. and both they and their families are doing well.

I was unable to go to Chicago this year to visit my son Stephen, daughter-in-law Kelly and Grandchildren. Granddaughter Anna is age 17 and in her Junior year in high school. Grandson Zachary is in college. Kelly is in charge of preschool for the City of Brookfield.

My son David, daughter-in-law Cindy and Grandchildren live at Blair, Nebraska and are doing well. Martha is age 16, Kathryn is age 14 and my Grandson Paul is age 12. They ride the school bus to school and attend classes at the Blair School System. Martha is a Sophomore in high school with a new drivers license, Kathryn is a Freshman in high school, and Paul is in the sixth grade. They are all doing well in school and Kathryn is active in 4H and raising chickens, rabbits and goats.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
