After reading through about 80% of what everyone is doing or has done, I don't know what to tell about my self and family.
I've been married to the same wonderful man for 38 years and we have 2 wonderful daughters, Amy (35) and Ivy (25). There was a long dry spell between children.
We have lived in Galveston almost 30 years and about 8 years ago we bought an old home (built in 1886) to renovate. What a chore! But a wonderful house at any rate. It was broken down into 3 apartments so Bud and I have an apartment and so do/did both of the girls. Ivy is still home. Told her we would not build a nursery on and don't look for her to leave any time soon either. Amy is married, lives in Houston, has produced our one and only granddaughter, Madeliene, who is 6 1/2 months old.
Now everything revolves around Miss Maddie! To hell with the house... it will be here long after I'm gone. We beat a path to Houston every chance we have. Galveston is about the slowest moving place I've ever been and afraid it has rubbed off on me. Since Amy moved to Houston, we moved my sewing, quilting and an office to her apartment.
Don't know what else to tell all of you. I have been gone from Memphis too long and haven't kept in touch with anyone. I'm happy and have a wonderful family. To me this is life !
