Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Saying Good-bye To Aunt Doris

.
Sister Pam, Dad and I will be heading out a little later this morning on a trip to Eau Claire, Wisconsin to say good-bye to Aunt Doris.



She will be remembered by many for the sparkle in her eyes, her clever sense of humor, her lovely soprano voice, and the way she could cook - - - oh how she could cook!

She will be remembered by me as a soft, warm, comfortable place to call home away from home.

As a child I spent a lot of time in her care. I remember playing on the sleeping porch, eating raw hot-dogs - - - what a treat! - - - watching cartoons, and exploring gullies.

Aunt Doris, I am not ready for those days to be gone. I will miss them, and you.

I love you always.

Keepie

I'm so very sorry you are losing your Aunt Doris. I had an Aunt Doris too. I had some wonderful times in her home as a child, but, she made me eat carrots and at that time I hated them! ♥

As we grow older we have to say goodbye to the people who were a big part of our childhood memories.
How sad. Take care & God Bless.

It's so hard to lose those we love, but the memories will be sweet forever! I hope you have a safe trip and I'm sorry for your loss!

So sorry Keetha. I lost a dear Great Aunt much like your Aunt Doris. I still remember her pig collection and I was the only one she would allow to play with it!

So sorry for your loss.

Oh, I'm sorry to be returning to you upon news of Aunt Doris. It sounds like Aunt Doris touched you greatly, and as hard as it is to say good-bye, you are amazingly blessed to have had each other in your lives.

Be well, and know that I am offering my heartfelt thoughts. And on a much lighter note, if it makes you feel a little better, Keethrannosaurus Rex kinda made my week. :-)

Love from the shore house,
Laura
