Great, we have two fantastic adult kids, no grandchildren and probably none to come. So aside from Nephew we have also designated some charities in the event as the attorney states "everyone" dies in a catastrophic event the courts won't give your estate to the state of PA, which we would not want to happen. I think what you negotiated with Peterbuilt was a great deal, congrats.

I think it was a fair and reasonable resolution.

You can't be hurt, except financially by changing early, oil changes are tops on the PM list, absolute tops.

As to living wills et al, we are re-doing everything this week as it so happens. Our new attorney brought up our dog - who takes her or them, do we give them money to do so etc. So, we have designated my nephew and his family, after asking, as they love her, and put in $10,00 for her care. Both our kids are allergic to her so although we are sure they would make do, it's better this way. You've got your son, but just a thought in case for Lily.

We also are having wills, financial, health powers of attorney, living wills, and add ons for specific items like my gun collection, watch, truck and Airstream so they are not part of the assets and given to the person I want them to go to. My wifes rings etc to our daughter et al. Attorney says even though everyone gets along, better to have it down in writing, I agree.

My Best.

Hi, I promised my Dad that I would take care of Dusty. Dusty adopted us about four years ago.

Awwww.

It is hard to imagine that Lily would outlive both me and my son.

If she did.....there are some close family members who are not only dog but cats-and-animals-in-general lovers.

I am sure she would not end up in a shelter.

Can't bear to think of that.

I emptied, cleaned and completely re-organized my refrigerator this morning, and I feel better about myself as a person.

Finally threw away a few pre-3/14 items, that only Doug used.....the Hersheys chocolate syrup he liked on a small bit of vanilla ice cream, etc.

It is still, always painful to put my hands on something he last touched.

I still have some of his shirts and good pants hanging in the closets, which I can't bear to just take to Goodwill. Many things have gone to my son and son-in law, but there is a lot left.

I just haven't wanted to get into them.

Am going to see if there is a place locally that helps men who are re-entering the workforce get outfitted for interviews, etc.

Life goes on.

We are leaving in the morning to meet friends from Canada for a long weekend, which I am really looking forward to.

I have not one, but two loaves of DO bread set to rise and bake in the am before I leave.....one with steel cut oats, the other seeded rye. Yum.

They and I will be in good bread for the duration.

We are meeting at the Miami State Recreation area on Mississinewa Lake, near Peru, IN. Anyone ever been there?

Their water is not on, nor bathhouses open, but we can do a weekend without that. Can't imagine it will not be lovely....not that we will be out and about too much.

Look to spend most of the weekend gabbing and catching up, cooking together a bit, eating.....and gabbing.

It will be nice.



Maggie

If you're out in your rig, enjoying yourself, it's camping.

In my humble opinion.

if you can't find an agency that helps outfit for interviews, check with a couple of churches..... they sometimes have avenues to make those connections even if it isn't something formalized. I know the church I work at gets many requests all over the spectrum from work boots for a labor job to bus passes to get to interviews..

That is an excellent idea, Dana, and something I had not thought of.

There is a pastor who lives across the street from me, and the agency that handles the Food Bank here might also be an option.

Doug would like to see his things go to men who need, rather than simply want, them.

Good thinking!


Maggie

Dutch Oven Bread......X 2!

I baked them side-by-side in my oven. Gave them a couple of extra minutes, but this seems to have worked beautifully.

Real bread.....it's a good thing.

I have sent an e-mail to my clergy friends in Wisconsin if they know of any avenues to donate. They have connections all over.

Thanks.

If you have never seen a JPeterman catalogue, they are so fun just to read, and carry unique and interesting items of clothing for both men and women.

Each item is prefaced by a charming, very well-written little story which conjours images of Humphrey Bogart, smoke-filled rooms, foggy harbors, Audrey Hepburn, formal dining rooms, African Safaris, mysterious women...or men...that sort of thing.

He always got to pore over and read these catalogues first, because I knew he loved them. Rather pricey items in there, so we did a lot of looking and reading, and only occasional buying.

Thinking about Doug's clothes as I drove today, I started having lots of memories of his JPeterman "Do you trust me to dance with your wife?" pants

A pair of dress khakis, with this caption, called to Doug 10 or so years ago. He bought them, wore them for special dinners out or other occasions, and we always referred to them as his "Do you trust me to dance with your wife?" pants.

Always. Never his good khakis, those JPeterman pants, his favorite khakis, etc. And, they were never washed, always dry-cleaned. Doug was a man who took very good care of his clothing.

I got to thinking that maybe he wants me to leave those and a favorite white dress shirt hanging together in the closet, next to his favorite JPeterman aftershave.

I can do that. A little in-house memorial.
