Hi sweet heart. Yup, this is me, writing this early. Woke around 8. Fed the furry family, water running in the jet tub. You know Dave and I are selling the house right? Today I am going to talk to him about maybe selling and moving to FL and finding an over 55 mobile home park. Was researching last night and I checked out safest place from the FL storms. Kissimee. That is where we went for Ellies cheering competition couple years ago at the ESPN center. Its 1/2 from Disney. It will be scarey but the grandkids are at the age pretty busy. We haven't even seen Alyssa since Christmas. I will miss them and the girls, some friends and Pat and Tom very much. But we'll have a spare room for visitors. And we could come up for visit in summer for as long as we can. I worry about my dementia. I worry that it will be too much eventually for Dave with out a support system for him so we may not go. I am sitting here feeling my sugar go low so I'll drink some milk. I think I am on too many diabetes meds now but I see the doc in march. No plans for today so I am going to buckle down and get more packing done. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Been a sleepy day. No napping but lying on couch covered up and tv. My sugar dropped quick today so I had to eat a can of something not so good for diet. But I counted the points and will not have supper. I will have a big salad sometime this evening. I will also be doing all the excercise equipment later. Dave is napping. But i will still make him supper when he wakes up. He is not ready to do wt watchers yet but maybe someday. Pat/Tom came over and we played Golf (cards) and I won. Then we played a few rounds of dominoes. Dave and Tom over 100 pts and I was close to 100. Pat had an amazing game and I think she wound up with 13 pts. Guess this will be a short one as nothing more I have done today and about the only thing later is one load of clothes, excercises and tv. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

02/27/21 Hello my blue eyes adonis. How are you sweet heart. Cannot believe woke a little before 2 pm. No reason for that. Been doing so good with earlier bed and earlier rise. Pat/Tom coming for cards tonight at 7. We normally do dinner when they come and vice versa. But both of them and I are on diets so it works out well this way because different diets. My diet is going really well but I have gained 2 lbs. Suffice it to say I am not happy. Muscle is supposed to be heavier than fat but would I be gettin that much muscle in such a short time? I think its maybe because I eat too late. Early this am Dave said it was snowing but now rain. All done with snow I hope. I barely go out anyway but Dave has to do the snow blowing although he is weird like you and likes it. Remember when I was shovelling the deck and you were snowblowing the sidewalk at our home and you turned the thing a ma jiggy so when you plowed all the snow went up and smacked me in the face? My first instinct was to kill you then thought about how funny I would have thought that was when we were younger so I laughed. Oh how you made us all laugh. Everyone who knew you. But you wouldn't take anything bad either. My soft strong man. I miss you and I love you, every single day. Same as mom. I will write more tomorrow. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo By the way I wrote to you yesterday. I don't know why not posted on here. Sometimes if they don't like what you write they won't post it. I don't swear. I don't insult anyone on here. I write to my late husband as if he were still here and we were sitting at our table talking. Maybe because today is saturday. But I do copy all that they don't put on here. It has been almost 6 years so I find it hard to believe anyone is still even reading my post to you. If they are I doubt they have any problems with what I write. So there you have it. love love love you

Hi sweet heart. I have been up since 9 am and I love it. I have been trying to be asleep by a certain time and up by 9. Since you have passed (cannot believe almost 6 years) I can not get enough sleep. I am up to the wee hours, sometimes I don't go to bed at all. It can wreck havoc for sure. First of all for 23 years I had the right side but Dave took that side. Second its just not the same. 23 years of lying beside the same person is a wonderful and special thing. And moving from our home of 16 years may have been part of the lack of sleep. I love our house. Very much. I wish you were here. You would love it. Selling sometime though. Poor Wayne and wife given 1 1/2 months to move. She was there 29 years and he for 20. They have been looking every single day but the market is brutal. Soon as something is listed its gone. Many times there is a bidding war. They have to move this w/e. So they are putting all in storage and moving to a motel. So wrong. He is such a hard worker, they are both good people. And all those years. But the son of owner had to sell his house so he is moving in. My guess is the covid has made finances bad. Its sad all around because he is actually a good guy too. But I believe in God so I pray that they find something soon and something even better than what they have. Tomorrow meeting Tammie for breakfast. Today is day 3 for wt watchers. Today have big omelet. Egg beaters with mushrooms and a piece of cheese. For dinner I am making Dave meatloaf with beef and meatloaf with ground chicken or turkey (can't remember what I took out) for me. Dave will have a can of veggies, I will have a salad. I did not make the doing all 3 excersize machines yesterday. did 2 then fell asleep. today have done 35 minutes on bike. after dinner will do one of the others then give Saint Nick a bath then do the other bike. Yesterday was official day will all the new meds for diabetes. My sugar level was amazing. Todays been amazing as well. I hope to someday lose enough weight to no longer need any diabetic meds like years ago. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I love you and I miss you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...

Hi sweet heart. Its wednesday but no Wayne. Its all good. Had to do something else. Also same thing with Willie this sat so we are postponing poker to the next saturday. Pat/Tom had their covid vaccine and feel good. We have ours next friday. Today will be my first day of excercising on my 3 new excersice equipment. New to me. All bought used but all in great shape. Today is day 2 of wt watchers. So far today I have an ometet with 2 pts and c milk for 4 points. Then I made up big casserole of shep pie. Was able to made one bowl for me for supper and freeze up 5 more. 1 1/2 cups. Really good. later when i feel hungry again I will either have one of the salads I make in advance or oatmeal. I printed off zero points food list for Dave and I. Maybe we'll do something with Pat/Tom this sat night. Here or their place. Friday going with my friend Tammie for brunch at little Miss Sophies. You met her a long time ago so maybe you don't remember her. This is hw the excersize will go for now. 10 on ab roller, 20 on rowing machine and 30 and bike. So just another day in the life and Dave and I. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Woke late today. Was up late last night. Dave had his cardio appt and all went great. So 2 dotors told him they think he has congestive heart failure. Not good. Cardiologist says he doesn't. Number one, very happy they were wrong but number 2 is really? They have any idea how worried we were and as well as that there is co payments for both of those doctors. But you have to listen to them. Even if not perfect. At first doctors I had mentioned maybe COPD but doc said no. Cardio said his lungs are in good shape but air may not be getting to it as well as it could. Partly being the weight gain. He is trying to lose weight and so far so good but it won't last because he is not on a weight program that he can stay on. Breakfast is grapes and bagel. Later bagel. Dinner then maybe another bagel. During the day he drinks water at night beer. I started weight watchers yesterday. Sure miss you doing the cooking and all the measuring when I was on it before. You spoiled me. Picked up all the new meds today. First it was one insulin for $2000 the with discount med card down tto $1900. I brought in my medicare card and she said no this is what it is. I said I can't do that. She said let me look just to be sure. It was $70. All together (6) total was $96. Hugh sigh. Maybe I can do what I did last time on wt watchers. Lose enough weight for no more diabetes. Can you see big Ed? If so wadda think of him? Almost 200 lbs lost. So thin. Hope he stops soon. And Debbie lost over 100 so far. So proud of them. So there my love, I am off to work more on meals for the wt watchers for 2 weeks. Tonight I had talapia and salad. Later will oatmeal. Drinking 64 oz of water a day. Its v8 tropical splash. So good. I will write more sweet heart. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet haert. Woke pretty late today and that was after sleeping alot of hours. Feel great. Made lunch for Dave and I. Washed the dishes downstairs. Packed up a few more bins. I am about ready to do some exercises then maybe a jet bath. Going to miss being able to do that when we move. The diabetic doc put me on new meds. Dave went to pick them up today. He called. One of the meds is $2,200. Told him to tell them to hold off until I call the doctor tomorrow. Thats just not feasible. Going to call Pharmacy first to make sure they know I am on medicare and have prescription coverage. In the meantime sweet heart, I miss you, I love you and I will write more tomorrow. mty, ltt.

Hi sweet heart. It is 3:59 am. No sleep yet. The day was crazy. Dave has been having breathing problems for a long time. But its getting worse and worse. Even as he tries to lie down to sleep. I talked him into going to walk in clinic. I couldn't go because only patient can go in. Couple hours later he called. The doc there heard irregular heartbeat and a little water around the heart. Last week our doc told Dave he'd like him to see cardiologist which he will see next week. Some concern about CHF. Doc at walk in called Daves doc and they both felt Dave needed to go to the emer room and walk in doc called ahead to let Emer room doc know I'd be bringing him in. After all the test emer room doc does not think it is CHF. Thank you God. He recommends he still follow up with cardiologist doc next week but in the meantime he thinks a steroid (i assumer prednisone} and inhaler. How sweet would that be? So that was the day. Cool as well is I talked with Jen for an hour and Tiffany for an hour. Always love talking with the girls. PC and family in Orlando doing parks there. They are going to try to hook up with Tif and family sunday before they head back home. The covid numbers are falling pretty much daily and how wonderful is that? they are asking for another couple months at least to keep the same guidelines going for mask and 6 ft apart. To give more people the opportunity to get their 2 vaccinations. Dave and I get our first March something. I have it written down. And I was told that when we get the 1st shot they give you your date and time for the 2nd which is 2 weeks later. Been packing up more and more but it feels like I am getting nowhere. Dave hasn't helped me. I am doing a room at a time. Dividing keeping and yardsale. Tif said that the yardsale they had paid for their entire moving to florida. I am going to fold the load in dryer and put the load in washer in the dryer then try for sleep. I miss you Jef. And I know that I miss days here and there. And I honestly hate that. I never want to let you down. I never want you to wonder if I still love you. But I also know how understanding you are. I will promise you this, I will always love you, I will always miss you. You will always be my soul mate and My Jef. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Good morning sweet heart. I fell asleep about an hour after dinner and woke at 3:30 this morning. So I have been cleaning out shelves and soon going to run a jet tub with plenty of hot water. We are not going anywhere today. Only getting small amount of snow but got freezing rain and maybe more of that so the roads should be nasty to drive on. We were going to shoot for the Red Jacket next week but thats NH vaca week for kids. This week is ME vaca week. Talked to Tif yesterday, where they live the kids get only get one spring vaca week and she thinks that is march. So we may go down at that time. I have been a packing fool. But yet there is so much more. 8 rooms and 2 garages means big time yard sale, throw out or keep. Since being diagnosed with dementia I have changed many things I can eat. So today I cleaned out one cupboard and I hope to later clean out 4 more and bring all unopened packages and cans to the food pantry. I am off to start the jet tub. I will write more tomorrow. By the way, did you see uncle pop for his birthday? And mom has been in heaven on the 8th for 9 years already. You are coming up on 6. Its amazing how the heart hurts because all these years I miss you both. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. I wrote yesterday but I don't see it. But its also sunday so that may be why. Anyhoo we are leaving in 5 minutes for the hotel in Portland. Before then have to stop by big lots as found out they have fire logs and I have 2 gift cards. Then walmart for dog rolls and me to buy Dave a card the finally wala picking up the lobster meat. Ordered 1 1/2 lbs but may get 2 lbs. Have to see how much meat in 1 1/2 lbs. Dave can't believe how full the suitcase is for one night. I don't think men get it. You didn't either. We have to pack like that. Better to bring and not need than get there with something you need but don't have. Do you recall our honemoon? You packed for you and I for me. Got to North Conway and you didn't bring any clothes? LOL nut. I took over packing after that. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt.

Hi sweet heart. I just noticed that I missed yesterday. I'm sorry. Today going to be boring. Sometimes thats not a bad idea. I do hope to pack more or at least get the rest of whats in the upstairs office finished. In a couple minutes heading upstairs to start the crockpot. Making chicken and bisguits. So good. Dave loves it. Then tonight I will pack us up for trip to Portland tomorrow for valentines day. You will always be my valentine. I hope that the way I see Heaven is at least close to what its like. I hope that you have family and friends around you. Nothing but sunshine and can see happiness only when looking down at everyone. Dave got results from doc yesterday. One test seemed like may have CHF. so they are making him an appointment with a cardiologist. We don't have to leave here tomorrow until around 1:30. Hoping we can find some lobster and buy enough for lobster rolls in the room. Dave will bring his snacks and I will bring a salad and oatmeal. Then the hot tub. we probably won't go in the pool. Pools are always cold. And that my deer is all she wrote (another My Jef saying). Oh yeah I woke to a call from PC. Nothing better than hearing your child first thing in the morning. Tomorrow they leave their house at 3 am. Flight to Orlando. Praying they be safe. She being an RN knows how to be safe and keep the rest safe so not too worried about that. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Wish you could tell me when I ask how you are. How amazing that would be. Yesterday Dave and I once again went to Little Miss Sophies. And again it was perfect. Wayne came over last night but they stayed upstairs because I didn't feel well and wanted to stay on the couch. We ordered parm chicken wings from Dominoes. Holy cow how good they were. Dave had a great day with the King games. He won 2 out of 3 that we played. Today @ 8 am had to drop St Nick off at the vets. He has been on insulin for a week now so they want to do blood work to see where numbers are. He is such a great boy. Takes his shots x 2 a day and doesn't fight it. Making breakfast for supper for Dave and BLT's the L for me. For the 1st time, today I did 20 minutes straight on the rowing machine. When Dave takes his afternoon nap I plan to do 30 on the stationary bike. Outside of these wild and crazy (not) things planned for today nothing else. We have no plans for the week end either except for maybe going away sunday night. I will write more tomorrow. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. What a bad night sleep. Fell asleep about 11 then woke at 1:30 am and have not been able to go back to sleep. Going to be a long day. No plans for today except more packing. Seems like forever just getting that done. And I haven't emptied even one room yet. I am going to ask Dave to paint the two cement floors in the basement soon. Maybe when a little warmer. He can't really say much being I have been asking him for a couple years. Everyone always said you were the number one procrastinator. Remember that? And how you'd laugh? Dave being your brother from another mother and you very best friend you taught the grasshopper very well. It does need to be done so when its time we can sell the house. The numbers of deaths and cases are going down. Absolutely love it. Love all those responsible for the vaccine. The man hours alone must have been exhausting. But the vaccine seems to be working. We go in March. And now when you get your first vaccine they already have an appointment for your second round. Wayne should be over tonight. Valentines day is sunday. I really don't like valentines day. Not since being a kid. Its easy for a man, flowers, candy, jewelry, night away. For women what do they buy their man? A truck, tools. lol Jen and PC gave me a gift card for hotels.com. Maybe we will use that and go up to the hotel we like in Portland. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. As any holiday that is special its getting harder and harder as Feb 14th is getting closer. I miss you every single day and every single waking moment but some days are harder. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Last night was the super bowl. Buccaneers (Brady and The Gronk are on the Buccaneers now) and Kansas City. Bronx won by quite a bit. Wayne came over. We have meatballs going and then we all pitched in on 2 large pizzas. None of us won any squares. I was close, Wayne was close. A woman won we never heard of, Bob B's lady won and a friend of Bob B's won twice. I don't believe in all the years playing I have ever won but its fun. Its pure luck because you fill in the blanks you want then later someone pulls out all the numbers. We'll play again next year. Seems like this season was the fastest that I can ever remember.
Dave went to bed and I layed down. And I was out. Woke this morning not feeling well. Like a head cold. So Dave offered to go to the grocery store and the post office. We played Kings and I won. Now he is off and shopping and I am writing you. Just did my bills, aol, and facebook. Ordered a Christmas gift for Pat. I am really cold so time to put the heater on and a bathrobe. If I feel better I want to get some more packing done. Tonight fish and cot ch for me and Dave doing dogs. Should say Dave and Maezie haha. So there you have it my sweet. Boring day. Tomorrow supposed to get snow and I don't remember what Dave said but another day this week too. It snowed for hours yesterday and Dave said only amounted to an inch or so. weird. but he went out and cleaned up. he is weird like you. he likes to snow blow. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart.

Good morning sweet heart. I have been up since 7:30 am. I fed and watered the cats, did the dishes and started to go through more stuff downstairs to keep, throw away or put in yard sale. Then I went and did more research on dementia. Typed up Bad brain health activity things, good foods to help dementia and bad foods. I have been trying to find crock pot recipes for good recipes for dementia patients. I don't know if I told you already or not. Doc told Dave and I last week he needs to go with me when I drive and someday I won't be able to drive. It is scarey of course but I am doing all I can to fight it. Lot of fun last night with Pat and Tom here. We played the new brain game we bought. Pat won with all cards, tom had one card, dave had one card and I had zero. Then we played golf (card game) that Dave loves. I won that game. Thats rare for me to win that game. Tonight we are having Wayne here for the super bowl. Cannot wait to have our normal group here for the super bowl but not with covid. We don't do gatherings anymore. Not worth getting or giving anyone the virus. But this summer while camping we will be able to do that. with the 6 feet distance. Outside so no mask. I do miss the hugs, the gatherings etc. Pat just told us last night 2 in family have the virus now but I won't say who. So we personally have know 7 that have had it and 4 of them passed. The shots have been flying out. After you get it I think? its 2 weeks later for shot number 2. Seems like good results so far. It has taken God only knows how many doctors and scientist and hours to find a shot for the virus. How great is our country to work so hard to save so many? Right now in NH the hospitalizations and the positives are dropping. Wonderful sign. We got this. It just a matter of more time, wearing your mask, avoid and or don't plan gatherings where you can't keep the distance unlee mask are mandatory. I'm thinking next week of each day do a couple hours to pack more. Right now sellers are kicking butt selling homes but homes and apartments are almost nil to finding. So, kid, I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

He has to go pick up football grid from Bob and a couple things around here. I am only sweeping today and doing the dishes. I have been very out straight last few days with packing, moving bins and boxes, sorting etc that its gotten to my back. Getting old does give you some benefits but some stuff i hate lol.

Hi sweet heart. Boy or boy. Were it not for covid I would be making appt for complete body massage. For two days I have been packing the storage room to bring everything up to the office. I want to make it so that everything downstairs will be upstairs except furniture so whoever can help up won't have to go up and down all the stairs for all the boxes and bins. Plus bottling up salads for lily (guinea pig) and myself. I have a ham in the crock pot going. Yesterday dave went for his echo cardio but it was today so that is where he is now. Got in orders today from Walmart and LTD commodiites. More brain games books for me and 4 water bottles. And walmart huge over size cookie sheets. The one we have is peeling. Still waiting for the slippers I ordered for Dave but they won't be in until next thursdat. Tomorrow Pat/Tom coming for dinner and cards or games. I am making baked mac and cheese and chops.

Oh sweet heart, I am so so sorry its been a few days. No excuse, just reasons. I do need you to understand though that no matter if I write or not you are always in my heart and in my thoughts every single day and night. You were my true fit, my friend, boyfriend, lover, husband and soul mate. I have been busy. We bought through online and craigs list a rowing machine, a ab roller and a stationary bike. So theres been all the moving around to find the places to put them. I have been doing all I can to continue to learn more about dementia. I have been doing sudoku, crosswords, search a word etc...I have been drinking 32 oz water a day and today was the first day i was able to drink 64 oz. I do 2 10 minutes on the bike, also the same on the rower. On the ab roller I can only do 2 5 minutes. Really hurts my back. We were supposed to get 10-18 inches snow yesterday/today. Thankfully that didn't happen. I don't know what we got for sure but Dave thinks at least 10 but said with all the wind its a little hard to tell. Ed and Jens new friend DJ and his son brought up the eliptical we got from Jen, I don't like it so she is going to take it back. And they also brought up to recliner we had downstairs which Dave brought to the dump monday. Then they brought down all 3 new machines for me. Thank God for Jens friend and Ed. We need sons or son in laws. Too late for sons but we do have 2 son in laws. One in Florida and one 1 hr 45 mins away. God knows what we are going to do when we have to move out of a 2 car garage and a 8 room, 3 bathroom house. Probably hire a moving company. Pat/Tom coming this saturday. I am making a dinner but not sure what yet. Dave wants baked mac and cheese so maybe that with ribs or chops. Then cards or I have 2 new board games. One is good for the mind but sounds hard. Tomorrow Dave is meeting Tom in Home Depot in somersworth where he and Pat bought new counter tops. Using Daves truck. Dave is doing the cat boxes, and the guinea and bird cages. Does every tuesday. When he goes to bed I will finish my work out, watch some tv and hit the hay. I hope. I will write more tomorrow sweet hearr. I miss you and I love you. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Dave and I had our appointments with doctor today. I had a good visit. Doctor proud of all I am doing to help slow the progressing of dementia. Told him bought alypitacal machine (bet thats not spelled right), bought an ab roller (that is still upstairs because its awkward, not very heavy but we both don't have the best of balance. And tomorrow we meet a woman in Wells ME for a staionary bike. Excersize is good for dementia. Told him I found a diet fruit juice. The other juices I tried made sugar sky high. Told him eating more fish, chicken and turkey. Then it was Daves turn. For most of last year Dave will just start sweating like crazy. Even sitting an playing cards. And over last 3-4 months breathing bad. Did an EKG in the office and it was compared to one he had few years ago and nothing changed so thats wonderful. Sent him straight to Frisbee for blood work. They want to do an echo cardiogram but that is something the doctors office has to get permission for insurance company. He goes back to see doc in 2 weeks. I do not have to go back for 3 months. He told Dave and I that I should have someone with me when I drive and that someday I won't be able to drive. I plan on showing him whats what lol. I know there is no cure but I am fighting this. I have my moms strength. I told him of the crafts things I have to keep the mind going. I told him of all the books (more like magazines) like crosswrods, search a word, puzzles, sudoku. I love you so much and I miss you so much and I truly hope that you know when it is my time I will love being with you and every one else but for now I want to stay here, hang with Dave, the adult kids, the grandkids and keep getting into mischief. So as you would say There you have it. I will write more tomorrow. mty, ltt Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. I am sorry I did not write yesterday. I had to have my MRI at 9:15. 40 minutes before I took 2 of sedatives doc gave me then 15 minutes before I took a 3rd. I wore 2 mask over my eyes. Silicone ear plugs in my ears and the 3 pills. They were able to put head sets on me. I still felt good. Then they pushed me inside the tube. and oh no wuhwuhwuh. I started raising my voice and telling them to get me out. And they did. Hard time getting heart beat to slow and hard to get breathing back. We left and went to have breakfast of which I forgot we did til Dave said we did today but he said I kept falling asleep. Came home and that was that. Probably around 11 am and slept until 9 this am. Feel great though. I called the doctors office, he is off today but the nurse was going to send him a note asking if I can have a sedative shot next time. I feel like a failure but its not something I didn't do everything I could do. Just way to closed in an claustraphobic. Today we are waiting for ADT to show up. noon to 5. long wait. I just called them though and the technician is in route. Yesterday Saint Nicks insulin came in. Now we need to have a lesson how to give it to him. Ed said outside of ear. Oh my poor baby. Thats going to hurt him. I wish I could take his pain. Ed says put something yummy like cheese or piece of dog and while he is eating do it then. PC may be coming to visit tomorrow. Jen still in pain from the tonsils out. Oops, bell just rang. Gotta go. I miss you and I love you Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. I started to write to you then I think I hit something on the keyboard because everything was gone. I was saying that for 3-4 days now I have made sure I do not sleep in the evening. I try for bed around mid-night and sleep until 8-9. I think tomorrow I am going to bring all the Christmas bins and start packing the stuff away for another year. Not a lot to talk about. No plans to do any thing. Tuesday is the MRI. I am going to wear one of my mouth/nose mask over my eyes, i have a presciption for sedative, and I bought silicone ear plugs. Here's to me being able to do it. Good thing its my head so I won't have to have most of my body in the tunnel. I am going to write more tomorrow. I miss you and I love you, and I always will. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxox Oh, Dave just said to tell you hi

Good morning sweet heart. Good nights sleep last night so was able to get up at 8. Have things to do today. Get the old smoking room redone and make room for the ellipical, meeting 3 of my friends for lunch, heading to Kay Jewelers to get rings cleaned. Part of the warrantee on them is I need to bring in twice a year, july and jan. Then stopping by Tweesa's to pay her and Jay for watching Maezie for a night. Still want to go away this saturday but decided to wait until Alyssa can go. She is with dad this week end. Jen had tonsil, adnoids out yesterday. Sore throat but it went well. Just when numbers drop they will go up again. Today anyone over 65 can get the vaccination but we want to wait until all front liners and elderly get theirs or at least alot more. We'll just continue what we are doing to keep safe. I was awake but hoping to go back to sleep when Saint Nick came up and layed down on my hip. I so love my furry family. Thank fully you and Dave are animal lovers. Dave and I have gained way too much. I would like to go back on weight watchers. So trying to get him on board. It will definitely not be easy with all the cooking and measuring and weighing. You did all of that for me when I was on it years ago. Dave after 4 years still can't take a picture haha. We all have our strength and weaknesses so its all good. I don't know if I told you yesterday but I finally got the call for MRI. Next week. Brain MRI. Doc says he just wants to rule out a past stroke but he is pretty sure I didn't have one. Its funny, and good, because every single day I miss you and mom. Every single day I want you both with me. But I also know that things are good. Friends, family, Dave, furry babies. I just wish I had all the plus you two. Been since last valentines day for the Legion to have dances. Daniels closed because of covid and finally decided to retire. No where is there dancing. How I miss that. Oh how much you and I danced. And Dave and I went almost every friday night. One day we'll be able to again but I don't have a clue where. I hate to go but I have so much to do and I don't want to but I have to. Lazy part of me. Can you please tell all that I love them and miss them. I hope that you are able to see Uncle Pop, Chrome dome and your mom. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Good morning sweet heart. Many times its easy writing to you because I have things to tell you. Then there are days like today that not much to say. Wayne didn't make it over last night. I was tired and fell asleep early and slept until 6 this morning so got good sleep. Dave is still sleeping and its 11 am. No need to wake him. Have nothing to do today. Jen is selling us her elliptical and Jon is bringing it here. So when Dave does get up and has some "me" time I am going to ask him to get rid of a shelving stand, move over the recliner and the wood stand so I can put in in that space. First I have to figure out where I can put all the stuff on both shelves so we can move them. Oy Vay. I saw in Fosters that Dover has a plan for waterfront in Dover. Picture looks great. lunch with the girls tomorrow. Outside of that Dave may take me to lunch or dinner this w/e. Have finally gotten call from Doctors office, diabetic specailist. For next month. Doctors offices are another group I feel bad for. Loss of staff makes it harder to get people in as quick as they used to. Still waiting for something from our doctors office with MRI appointment. I am still trying to do more to help slow down my dementia. I just ordered brain games books and one brain game board game. Still trying to think of more foods I want to google to see if on or not. I just started drinking a cranberry/mango drink and OMG so good. I think? its 8 sugars in entire bottle. Definitely buying more. Dave is tired alot. Glad we each go in for our doctors appointment end of the month. We have same doctor so we can go in together. And diabetic doctor lets others in when they see a patient so glad for that as well. So is that it? Have I gotten to the age where its about doc appointments? haha. Just not much going on right now. Anyhoo, guess what? I bet you havent heard this before haha. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" I think if that last line starting with mty, ltt would be a cool tattoo but way too much and way too painful. You were there for 3 of my 5. 4th and 5th were you date of birth and last was a sign for mothers/daughters do together. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. BTW we have a new president and vice president. President Biden and VP Kamala Harris. I'm back. Got call from docs office. MRI next week. I was already panicking before hung up. Thank fully he gave me a calm down pill for 45 minutes before and another for right before. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Good morning sweet heart. Yesterday was so good. Because I went with Dave to do a ton of errands. Really good to get out. Today is the official inauguration of the new president. Joe Biden. You probably remember him. He did 8 years with Obama as VP. He is pushing for a large amount of money. To help with the Covid Virus, Unemployed and stimulus checks. They have been giving out shots for the virus. Started out with front line people, then elderly in assisted living homes. Now they start in 2 days for 65 and older. Dave and I won't be getting ours. Not until they have gotten all the front liners and assited living taken care of. Wayne will be here tonight. This week end is the last play off games. 4 teams, 2 will go to the Super Bowl. What a fast NFL season. Artie did the super bowl squares. Dave and I each picked 4 squares. I have not been lucky with that. I may have won one time. I ran into an old Daniels friend at Walmart yesterday. So good to see. We had a ton of fridays dancing. I am going to try to see if Sandy and Joanne want to do Windjammers next week and the four of us get together. Guess not much more to say except that I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt.

Good morning sweet heart. Last night we had our poker game. I lost $13. Dave had a good night. As always fun. Forgot to make the salad so I had to eat meatballs and red meat is not good. But they sure as all get out tasted so good. It was over a little before midnihgt. Dave went right to bed and I was up about an hour doing a little clean up from the game. I slept until 5ish this morning and feel wide awake so for last 4 + hours I have fed all the animals, washed dishes, cleaned up everything from the poker party, watched tv and wish I could get a little more sleep. I will try a nap when Dave takes his. Ribs and salad for dinner. we are not going anywhere, we are not getting out of pj's. Dave will probably watch a game or two. Well Mr. France, blonde adonis I will write more tomorrow. Please, can you tell mom and all others that I miss them and I love them? mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxox

Hi sweet heart. Another day. Last night we play cards (golf) that Tom won. And dominoes that Pat won. Tom made me shepards pie and Dave spaghettie. I made a pan of lasagna for them. I have to say they are my favorite couple. Tonight is our poker game. I have to start getting everything together soon. Dave is going to get the chicken wings in over and meatballs in crock pot. I'm going to get all the other stuff done. Its always alot of fun and love that its all family. Tomorrow is a day of nothing. Football pools today and tomorrow. That had to have been the quickest 17 weeks. But we are getting closer to camp season. Dad brought the car we obtained last fall to a cosignment place. The man says should be able to sell within a month. Soon to be President Biden is pushing for a big money. For stimulus, Covid, Unemployment. He and President Trump wanted stimulus for $200 but were shot down and we all got $600. Now here's hoping we get the other $1,400. Going right into savings. Last 2 stimulus went into Daves truck. You know sweet heart, every single day I miss you and mom. Every single day I wish you were both still here with me. Its still hard. I miss my best friend, my soul mate, my husband. I am so blessed to be loved by Dave and I also love him. We will be doing a yard sale in march and may/june start looking for another home. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart.

Hi sweet heart. Had a great night sleep last night so good that I got up early today. Been puttering around getting the little things done. Dave just brought the car that I had co-signed for and wound up having to pay over 12 grand because you know who didn't make the payments and it was re-poe'd. He brought it to a consignment place. We want $8,000. Here's hoping. Then this spring we'll sell the camper for a smaller one. Not the seasonal. And 50/50 on if we will sell the boat. I have wanted a boat for so long and we finally got one. Put $3,600 in it. But I was scared when we went out on it. I have done so much reading on dementia and maybe thats what was going on. They voted for Trump to be impeached and voted yes. In the history he is the only president who has been impeached twice. FBI still saying there is trouble coming. I say, let him go in peace. Ring in the new President and start over. We have the covid virus. Thats bad enough. Lets bring the citizens back together. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart.

Hi sweet heart. Funny story. Going on 6 tonight Wayne showed up. He thought tonight was a poker night. But it turned out great because there were 3 play off games and he stayed and watched with us. I kicked them upstairs for the 3rd game. I like football but not that much. 2 games was a game too much haha. Didn't do much today. A little cleaning, a soak in the jet tub, and laundry. Dave and I played kings. When 3rd game over we are going to play another. Ed told me that their insulin for their cat in only $50 something. So I am going to check into that. If that is the case I will order through them. I am going to go. Sorry so quick. I will write more tomorrow. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. How is my love? It shows that its been 5 days since I have posted on here. But no, I have to go back and save all post because they can not post what I write to you. I talk to my husband who has passed. I never put last names, I never swear. Its just me talking to you. Anyway I will continue writing to you. Doing nothing today but cleaning. 3 days ago met Joanne and Sandy for lunch. 2 days ago Tammie came here and we played cribbage. We word mask though. That was a blast. From the protesting at the White house there were 5 deaths. 1 woman and one police officer. the other 3 were medical emergencies. They are trying to either impeach Trump or Go with the 25th ammendment. Trump is also seeking advice on if he can pardon himself. Sad that it has come to this. But he has said that he will leave the White House for the 20th of Jan so Biden/Harris can go in. Last night Dave and I went to Pizza Hut. Didn't go great but it was good in the end. Bob B did his poker pools and we went there to pay up and it was a nice visit. Artie is doing the superbowl pools. Wayne, Dave and I got into that as well. I think? there are 3 games today and the other 3 tomorrow. I don't think I have ever seen 17 weeks go by so fast. Heres hoping that keeps up so summer will be here quick. Going to be busy end of spring, early summer. We are moving and selling house. This house too big now and the stairs are hard on Dave. Want a dbl wide on own property. Camping will open May 1st. And we may drive to Tif's end of June. Had both cats and Maezie at the vet yesterday. REALLY good news. Vet gave us a number to call. This organization will pay for Saint Nicks Insulin. I wish you could see him sweet heart. He is still skinny but not so much. Has gained 8 + lbs. Can't get him to groomer until his cold goes away. I get that, especially in the winter. Maezie got shots yesterday, eyes stained (I don't know what that means but her eyes leak so they were looking for any irritation in her eyes. She starts eye drops today. I start today as well getting her resting respirations. They are thinking that she may have a heart murmur left side. I will get her blood work info today or monday. Between cats and dog the total yesterday was $459 and before that we paid out $535. That's alot but not for family and they are our family. Eventually it will go back to just once a year physicals. And we got the stimulus checks so there is always a silver lining. If Maezie needs to have the procedure later it will be estimate of $359 to $447. I am thinking that maybe this w/e we'll take down all Christmas decs except the 2 trees in the living room. Dave doesn't want them down. That't ok. kind of pretty anyway. Remember how Tabitha loves the Meow soft food and her favorite ws whitefish? Saint Nick hates it. We may play cards at Pat/Toms house next friday. We are having poker here next saturday. I am sitting here writing to you and there is an ad for sneakers. and I love them. Probably going to order. So far now sweetheart I will copy and past this to the document I used to copy and past in case they don't wind up in here. And I will write to you tomorrow. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt.

Hi sweet heart. Haven't done much today. Beat Dave at two games of Kings. He is napping now. I am doing laundry. Going to join a couple play off pools. Dave got the estimate of the truck. $750 plus. There goes more than one of our stimulus checks but the silver lining is that we did get the stimulus checks. the other is going towards Saint Nicks Vet bills. Wish we could have kept the checks but have to also be grateful we got them so we could use for outside stuff not expected right? Joanne called me yesterday. wanted to know if wanted to meet for lunch wed. Then I called Sandy and asked her if she wanted to go so the 3 of us are going to Windjammers. They are really nice staff and food thats the best. On the new dememtia food/drink list now. I hope my doctor will set me up with a nutritionist because 10 things you can eat and 5 you can't eat? Nah, there has to be much more. Tammie private messaged me today. Asked if I wanted to play cribbage on her new board her son made for her. So we will be doing that thursday but we'll be waring mask. And so far so good that Wayne is still coming wednesday like the normal. He won week 17. Creep haha. We really don't care. We love him and can't wait to see him each week. Have to figure out when to do our monthly poker game as well. So here is a SHOCKER for you. You know just how much one pill would be too many. How I would rather 100 needles than one pill? well for a long time on 3 meds. Yay to me. But now as of today I am also taking 4 vitamins recommended for dementia. 3 are ok but 1, holy cow. really big. So of course I choked but it went down. Man or man I hate pills. I had ordered 2 ornaments special. One for PC and one for us. One came broken so we'll send that back and the other will go to PC. I will write mroe tomorrow sweet heart.

Happy New Years sweet heart. We had both Alyssa's here last night. We are taking them home for 5 and Jen is making steak and baked mac and cheese. Then playing that game where you wear mouth pieces and try to get someoe to guess what you are saying. It is truly hilarious. Things are good sweet heart. I do need to talk to you about something that I am keeping close. Only 2 friends, the adult kids and Pat/Tom know for now so I am praying if anyone does see this they keep to themselves. I will always love you so I will always talk to you like you are sitting across from the table. I was just diagnosed with early Dementia. Don't you worry sweet heart. I am doing a ton of reading. What to not eat and drink and what is good to eat and drink. I have a heck of a first time grocey list going lol. there is no cure but you can combat it for a very long time. you know me. i'll fight this all the way so even though I would really love to see you and be with you it's still going to be years baby. Last night we went to the movies with the 2 girls. we were the only ones there. feel bad for the owners. we went to LaCorona and we were put very separated from others. They are a good resturant and are following guidelines to the T. No plans this week end though. Going to do alot of research for sure. Probably while Dave takes his 2 naps haha. You and he, boy you love your naps. I wish I knew how it was for all of you for Christmas and New Years. I know its souls but can you all still communicate? Can your soul meet their souls and send them love? Well I will know one day. We all will. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I love you and I miss you. mty, ltt.

Good morning sweet heart. Are you ready for this? Yesterday People Magazine contacted me for interview about Saint Nick. I was nervous so I hope I did a good job. I kept talking. I did not expect to wake up and see a text asking me to call. I tell you this, not a single reporter from anywhere was anything but nice. They were all nice. People magazing reporter asked me different questions to so that was a little shake up lol. Our mircle baby boy. I also got a message that WMUR wanted to run the story as well. Today sometime we are meeting up with Alyssa and her friend Alyssa who calls Dave and I grammie and grampa. We must be cool (haha) because this is about our Alyssa's 4 friend who wants to call us grammie and grampa. They are coming here tonight and tomorrow night. Then friday we are bringing them home and we are going to play that game you, myself, Pat and Tom played at camp. The one where you put the mouthpiece in your mouth and try to get someone to gues what you are saying. going to be some video taping for sure. Man how we all laughed. And yesterday the article about Saint Nick (aka Benny) was in the USA today paper. I really truly wish Saint Nick knew that he has given smiles to so many people. I have a doc appt tomorrow. Dave won't be able to go in but I am going to see if they will let him. When we have appointments its always together. A member of Deadliest Catch. Picture did not look familiar but thats a show you watched far more than I did. He was only 33 but was on the show couple years before you passed. Sad so young. I have to get in Alyssa's room and get it cleaned. I had taken out her bureau (cloth) for the downstairs bathroom. I through out all the candy wrapping papers she tossed in the drawers (sound familiar) and the other stuff tossed on her bed. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart.

Hi sweet heart. How was your Christmas? Were you able to see family and friends who are there with you? Was it beautiful? Last night we had Christmas PC, Randy, Autumn and our newest H'elia. You'd love her. PC's neice. She got permanent gaurdianship about 3 years ago. She's a cool kid. She and Autumn are two of a kind. Good 2 of a kind. Jen/Alyssa came as well. I think you know? that Jen/Jon not together anymore. But he had Alyssa for a couple nights and she was spoiled. I do love that. PC got me the gift that made me cry. and cry. and cry. Its a small music box. Inside is a message from her. When you wind it up it plays "you are my sunshine" From our wedding sweet heart. I will keep that always. I wore your necklace. They met Saint Nick (used to be Benny). and by the way I received an email from the reporter who did the story in Fosters/Portsmouth about our miracle cats return. Her email told me today that the story just went national. USA today picked up the story. Dave is out getting us a copy. Our miracle is being shared and enjoyed by so many. So he is also a gift of smiles to God knows how many after a year of bad. His first weigh in with me was 3 lbs gained. Weighed him last night and he was 8.6. You can still feel his spine and ribs but so much less now. I finally found wet food he can have with less than 7 carbs. Still searching for affordable insulin. In the meantime we have limited snacks. Still give him a little each day. He loves chicked and burgers for people food. Give him lots of chicken but little beef. Figure red meat not the best for humans so probably not the best for furry babies. Its all in a learning process for Dave and I. He is a weird cat though. He will do dirtys in his litter box but not liquid. So I bought some bed disposable bed pads and put one beside the little box and he goes no problem. lol. I love you so much sweet heart for 28 years. That will NEVER stop nor will I ever stop missing you. I will write more tomorrow. mty, ltt. Foever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

OMG sweet heart. I got on here today to find that I had started to send you a post for Christmas yesterday. Not only did I not write but I didn't even shut down obituary at all. I will say that yesterday was a tough day. Slept late like always, up finally to make dinner. Dave and I did not have nice day. I think maybe we were both in our own worlds. He slept late. While I made dinner he took a nap. After dinner he changed the cages and I fell asleep. Our sleeping habits are very bad sweet heart. Most especially since I really messed up this time. We couldn'do Chrimstmas with Pat/Tom and no Christmas with PC and Fam and Jen and Alyssa. We slept to late to call Tif and the twins and just called them about 1/2 hour ago. We really need 2021 to get better. I hope you get this post because I know they won't post post if they think others won't like the post. I just want you to understand that there won't ever be any day that you are not on my mind as well as mom. I did post that I hoped that all of you that we have lost has a wonderful Christmas and how it must be beautiful. Actually I am going to find it now on FB. Here is what I posted on FB yesterday..........MERRY CHRISTMAS to my mom. my dad my brother and My Jef. My grandmothers aunts uncles mom in law uncle pop. You have all been taken and our only solace is knowing you aren't sick or in pain and best of all is being in Jesus and God's arms. I miss you all Christmas in Heaven. how beautiful that must be. I love you so much sweet heart. There will never be anyone that I will love more. Happy 1 day late. Fosters did an amazing job with the story about Saint Nick being our Christmas miracle. Monday I have to make 3 appointments at the vets. Both cats seem to have colds. I have never seen a cat with a cold but I don't want it to get worse. And Maezie sounds like respiratory problems. I think its her weight. I will write more tomorrow. I am hoping I am wrong and I did write you yesterday. Days just blend. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie"

Hi sweet heart. Well guess who won again in nfl pool? Wayne. And guess how he won? We all had 11 wins so he won by the tie breaker. I had 42, he had 44 and Dave had 49. Total of monday nights game was 44. Went shopping 3 places today. Not bad as far as mobbed. Was concerned the most with Market Basket because of buying last minute for Christmas. But it was good too. Spent a ton of money for normal weekly stuff and then...all the stuff I need for baking and making containers for some people. Tomorrow I make for Pat, Tom, Angela and Big Autumn. They each get one. Then Sat I make up for PC, Randy, Autumn, H'elia, Jen and Alyssa. All of them each get one. and of course for us too. I am really tired. Did a lot of stuff. But good news is Dave does not have to go back to orthopedic. They have done all they can. Sill having a problem with Saint Nick and the cat box. He will use it but just as often he will go beside it. Today I bought the throw away chucks like we had for Uncle Pop. I hope he will use it. If he does for a couple days I will start putting them in little box for a few days then try without. Cats even as kittens know instinctively but I think he had years of outdoors that he just needs a little help. I have to weigh him tomorrow. Hoping he lost another one or two lbs. Still working on finding insulin for him that is the cheapest price. There is only one insulin for people for cats too. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I can't tell you enough how much I miss you and love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo PS. got an email. Portsmouth paper and maybe Fosters will be putting in an article about Saint Nick on Christmas. That will be warming many hearts.

Hi sweet heart. I went to bed around 5 this morning but could not sleep. It is now 8:07 am. So I did a grocery list, checked bank account and now writing to the man I have loved the most (not counting dad of course). Oh how I miss you. Can't believe that in 4 days it will be Christmas. We are not going to Pat Toms this year. And we are having Christmas with PC and Fam and Jen and Alyssa. The second round of the shots are coming soon or maybe they just got here. Getting sleep now. These will be for the elderly. Anyone 75 and older or older than 75. PC got hers a couple days ago. We had poker last night. I won $7 and Dave lost. Not much though. 2 regulars didn't make it but there is a friend of Willies that has been here a few times and he was able to make it. Right now wayne, dave and I have all the same wins 11 each. Tomorrows game we have the same pick so it will come down to the tie breaker. Wayne and I have 3 games this season where we tied for most wins that week but he won all three tie breakers. I have 42 so I need it that or less as Dave and Wayne have over the number. Guess what I am doing this year? Making brownies and no bake coconut cookies for a few. No plans all week. Going to be hard not being with Pat and Tom. We will video us opening gifts from them. And they will video them opening gifts from us. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss you and I love you so much and I am already getting sad with Christmas coming. We did Christmas 23 years and this will be our 6th apart. I bet it is gorgeous in Heaven around this time. There won't be any New Years Celebrations either. I hope that people think about the risk and not have any get togethers. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Today was alot of sleeping. I did not wake until 3:45 pm then after supper Dave and I layed down. I just woke couple minutes ago and it is almost mid-night. Just a really lazy day. I don't like it. That means not very productive and now I may be up for the night. Poker tomorrow. Was going to be 4 of 7 now will be 5 of 7. Its going to be so hard this year not being with Pat/Tom, Angela/Autumn. But when we are all going to open our presents we they and us will video do it. Can't remember what its called but I was just taught how to do it so we can all see each other. Actually maybe we will use Dave's phone. That's how we talk to them. We just did earlier to talk to the twins. Today is their 15th birthday. I redid the bathroom yesterday. Its a little too crowded so I need to figure out something else. Tomorrow I shop for food for the poker game. Not going to make as much as normal though. I might make cookies, a pot of meatballs, kielbasa, cheese and call it a day. I found a couple things when I moved stuff around the storage room. 2 for Dave. Tif is on some thing that the usps will show them each day what will be delivered. she saw today that 2 cards were coming. one for each twin but when they got their mail only Trey got hers. So Tif is worried about that. I told her that if Ellie does not get hers in a week to let us know and we'll send her another one and replace the money. I have a box to send them anyway. May have fallen or something. That is what I prefer to think. Saint Nick gained 3 lbs this week. At first it said 9 lbs and I about freaked. That's not good. Then I remembered that I needed to subtract the 6 lbs he weighed when we got him. Sometimes your wife can be a nut. yeah yeah i see your smiling and agreeing. I will write to you tomorrow. When? No clue. but I hope before the game. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Well we certainly are getting alot of snow right now. I think? it may have started in the late night but not sure. Right now Dave is guessing we already have 7-8 inches. Its light so he is going to wait to snow blow when it has died down or stop. Right now he and every one of the furry family are asleep. I left lights off but for one. I got a message today from SPCA. There is a woman with Exeter News that wanted to do an in depth interview about Saint Nick. So i sent her an email and she called shortly later. She is definitely good at her job because she had many questions. Could hear her typing. She was really funny and really nice and loves her own kitties. She said that they are in fosters and portsmouth as well. I can't believe how this wonderful cat came back after 7 years. He is such a loving cat. Of course our big dog Maezie gives clear way to Saint Nick and Saint Nick and Squeaky still hiss. But not as much. He has had 2 vet appointments and lord they are expensive but when he has had all that he needs to get healthier that will slow down. and it will be every 3 weeks for diabetes check and his normal once a year physical like the others have. Did I tell you he is a diabetic so that is our next road to follow. Right now I am on the look out, with no results yet for soft food for him with under 7 carbs a serving. Then have to find the cheapest place for the insulin they want he on then they will do something called the diabetic curve to determine how much he will need a day. As much as for now the cost is tough I really hate that its because he needs it. That makes me sad for him. For whatever he went through all these years. But he is happy. He refuses to sleep in his new bed unless its on the table but last night was the first night he let me put his bed on floor and he slept there. he also laid on me on the couch. I need to find another way though because that is Squeaky and my place and I don't want them to compete. They each deserve their own place with mommy. Last night Wayne was here and of course Saint Nick got his attention. Having a poker game this saturday. Only 4 instead of 7. They started to do vaccine shots for the covid. Front line and eldery. PC sent me a message that she is scheduled to get hers in a few days. we don't know about the future with the shots but we do know that so many people are there for us to protect us and at least they now have a chance. And she being our baby and an RN and an emer room nurse here's praying. So its all good. We stay home alot but still get out once a week. We have fb (I do), the phone and are able to stay in touch with everyone. No Christmas with Pat and Tom this year. But all of us will be videoing each home and opening gifts. And another thing with Saint Nick. Getting tons of good answers on the post SPCA wrote. And some have been sharing the story on their time lines. Its so sweet all their answers and its really nice to see them say how heartwarming it is, how happy the story made them. A true Christmas miracle. So there you have it. Now thats a famous line we've all heard from you. Makes me smile. I will write more tomorrow. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Guess what? Another cool thing happened to us last night. Tweesa called me and told me we are famous (not really). She is in a site that people can go to to get advice on where there are lit up Christmas lights etc and she went on the site yesterday and there our house was. Sadly we did not do the other side yet. One side is all done with all the large blow ups but snow hit before Dave got out there to the other side with all the smaller ones. We have a system. I buy he puts up. I like that system haha. She tagged me in the video so I was also able to share with those on my fb page. Dave has been napping like 3 hours. I hate when he does that. Not because of me, you know very well that if you wanted to nap anytime I was good with that. If you need a nap your body needs it. But when its a long nap I never know when to wake him so he can sleep later tonight. So I think I will wake him around 10, its 9:27 right now PM. I had found an amazing deal at Job lots where Kmart used to be. But big package of batteries for $11.99 but you get a gift card for there for $8 so in the end it cost only $4. I went there again today as I offered if anyone wanted some I'd pick them up. Here is the great part. I went to get some for those who wanted some. They did not have anymore. But what they did have were packages of 24 AA's and also 12 AAA's. For $12.99. And you get that $12.99 back. So I did pay $195.88 for them a well as another coat for a homeless veteran. And in return they gave me back a gift card good for the entire $195.88. Of which I can shop for Christmas stuff this year. We are keeping 3 of the battery packages. 2 for home and 1 for the camper. The other 9 I am just going to give out. Everyone needs batteries. There are truly good things at this time of year and most often unexpected. Especially Saint Nick. I told you we renamed Benny right? In honor of a Christmas miracle. Oh how I wish you were here My Jef. PC/Jen/Randy and the 3 grand daughters will be here for Christmas. Don't know when yet. I am ok with that. Christmas day was a magical day when Christ our Savior was born. And we should not just remember him and celebrate him on his birthday but all days. Making Christmas meal and gifts can be any day. We had our thanksgiving and Christmas with Tif, Omar and the twins couple weeks ago in FL. As far as Pat/Tom, Angela and Autumn we will get together and leave gifts outside then we will all video chat so we can watch each other open our gifts. I am 65 and this Christmas will be my 65th. And every one was celebrated with my brother Tom. I will be honest with you, I hate it, It saddens me. But I am hanging on to faith that next year we'll be together again. Although he is coming the day WMUR will be doing a video chat with me about Saint Nick and our reunion. Not that great with phone or computer stuff. Tomorrow we are bringing Jen one of our trees. We have 6 just for the house. Never mind outside. She has had hers for about 10 years and says it is getting raggy.
I took off all the ornaments thats are the most personal to us and mean the most and I will leave the others for her. Well another long one. Can't believe Christmas will be in 11 days. I miss you My Jef and I love you. mty ltt Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Good morning sweet heart. Pretty laid back night last night. We were doing poker but we cancelled. Maybe next week. Dave has been tired a lot lately so he went up to bed early. Its almost noon and he is still asleep. No plans for today. Will keep eye of all football scores for the week to see which of us won big $10 haha. We have not see Wayne for 4 weeks. Today or tomorrow I am running some things up to Jen/Alyssa. Told them I will drop outside door then call them so we can at least wave. The vaccinations will be in the USA soon. Front line and elderly in homes. Absolutely agree. Thank God to for our daughters sake right? Last time she called she was saying its a nightmare finding beds now. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Guess what? A little while ago WMUR called. What a nice man. He asked for story on Benny (we changed his name to St Nick}. He asked if we can send some pics so I did. He asked if in a couple days they can do a zoom interview. No idea how to do that so we will do it through my phone. Its so wonderful St Nick is getting this attention. All the horror and strife of all this year there is always hope and a chance for a miracle and from all my responses on face book and calls its made many people happy. And a few like us who still can't believe it. Can you see him sweet heart? I don't want to think about what he must have endured. So proud of him. So happy for all of us, He is battered some but so loving. He eats a lot and drinks a lot. We asked vet (appointment was this morning and Dave took him with my list lol} to do everything they think he needs to get healthy. I asked if they can check his teeth because he eats funny. Turns out he had one of the big teeth very loose so they pulled it. I asked if they can test his hearing and sight. They took test and we will have the results emailed to me monday. And they updated him on all shots. What a fighter. And we are fighting for him. So onward we go to other subjects. 13 days to Christmas. Pretty much all of us quarantining. Dave and I are fine but why take risk? We are going to eat out tonight or order in. There are only 2 places still feel comfortable going because they follow ALL rules. Squiggy from Laver and Shirley passed away. 73. Wow, talk about making me feel old. I wrapped the presents to give to everyone at poker game tonight because I am having a hard time walking right now and its alot of work. But very much worth it. So we are hoping next sat. Mailed out birthday cards to the twins. Their birthday is in 5 days. Dave is napping. All 5 of the petting zoo are napping. Oops, take that back. Just heard Henry squeak. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Got a call from SPCA a bit ago. I figured they'd be calling to see how Benny, Now Saint Nick is doing. It was to see if they could get the story about him and put on their website next week. They had taken couple pics when we picked him up and they said they love the one where we were in the car about to leave and Saint Nick was hugging me. They said what I have been saying, with all the sad this year this is a great happy story especially near Christmas. I tell you that he is a great boy. Actually a big boy. He has a lot of bumps and snags in fur but he eats and drinks all the time. Will ask vet to do diabetes test tomorrow at his appt. We can't go in but I am going to ask special permission so he won't be scared. He is always looking for my attention so I think he won't be so scared if I am there. I hope you can see him sweet heart. Remember JoAnn from Danielles? she called and asked if she can drop off a gift for me. I have one for her so I put it in the mailbox. Unreal that Christmas is 2 weeks from today. I bet it so much fun and so beautiful there at Christmas. I am leaving soon. I have a ton of shopping at walmart and market basket. I miss you and I love you. So much. mty, ltt. forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Jef this is going to blow your mind. This is the only miracle I can say I have ever witnessed. Do you remember our cat Benny? Gone about 7 years. We thought she wandered off into the woods where we used to live and we never saw her again? How crushed we were? Dot called yesterday, Benny came to us from when Sarah had to move. Benny had a chip implanted. I don't think you or I knew that. 7 years of not seeing Benny and someone just found her, took her to the emergency vet then off to the SPCA in stratham. This was all told to me yesterday. The SPCA called me this morning and we went to pick him up this afternoon. We already bought him a collar, dishes, food, snacks. I have been hugging and kissing him all day. Right now I have him on a bathrobe and two towels covered with a blanket on the poker room table until he and Squeaky get along better. Not since maybe when you passed have I gotten so many Facebook comments and phone calls. Every one just can't believe it. I say its a CHRISTMAS MIRACLE. how else would you describe it? He is battered, matted hair, some lumps. I gave hi a lukewarm bath today. No cat shampoo yet but we will. I did Dawn. That's supposed to be gentle. And rinsed. Sat we have an appointment with our vet. People keep telling me to contact Fosters about the story. I'd like to very much. Its such a wonderful story. A story during a time of all the sorrow around us. And a Christmas story. But I have no idea how to go about that. Since Benny doesn't know his name anymore, poor little man had no one for 7 years and I think of all the weather, all the obstacles, searching for food and water and he made it. We have named him "Saint Nick", And he is back with me. Twice in the car I sang "hush little baby don't you cry" to him and both times he fell asleep. I have sad feelings just thinking bout all those years without him and him without us and here is a miracle and we are together again. Its crazy but good crazy. The people at the SPCA asked if they could video tape me and Benny aka Saint Nick our new name for him. Well on and on I go about this. Its just a miracle and man you wouldn't believe all the nice things being said about Saint Nick and congrats to me. All day long and night my chest has felt weird. Mixture of sad and mostly happy. I will be giving that little guy the best life that I can. I promised him he will never go without food and water again. I promised him we will always take care of him and he will always be safe. Oh Jef, I am so happy. How I wish you were here in the reunion at the SPCA. I think I am going stop here. Go give him a hug and a kiss good night. I've already done that numerous times lol. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Slow day. Woke, played cards, talked to Darlene. Do you remember her and Carl? She sounds wonderful but Carl wasn't home. Dave told her to tell him that he and I were fishing off Tifs dock thanksgiving eve. Oh, Dave just came down. Putting a new dowel (spelling}? in book case in basement. He will probably nap before supper. And maybe after. Trust me its boring. Our youngest girl is being tested today. Scratchy throat and low grade fever. Over a week ago her friend stayed the night. And in the night woke not feeling well. Next day mom took for test and she is positives. Hate this virus but in kids its the worse. I am through will all but 1 Christmas card. They sold their house last year and I do not have their upgraded address. Post office for stamps then walmart for pick up Christmas order then a little food. Mask and sanitizer. Always. And some places don't wipe down the part you use hands to push carts so we always have wipes. Jef, can you tell everyone I said hi and that I miss them. I miss you and mom the most but I miss so many others as well. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss you and love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie"...

Hi sweet heart. I wish you could answer me. Especially with a hug and kiss. Wayne won this weeks football. And we still have games tonight and tomorrow night. But we have the same picks for those games. Alyssa is going to be tested tomorrow. She seems to feel ok but she has a low grade fever and scratchy throat. I'm glad. Yesterday there was over a thousand new cases. Thinking thanksgiving. I bet that after Christmas we'll have more. None of us should be gathering but I do understand it. Its hard to not be with family anytime never mind holiday time. Remember when you and joey would sometimes tease me and say I have ADD? well maybe. today I was writing to you, Maezie came down for water, got up gave her water then noticed I forgot to put a pile of clothes in washer. Then went upstairs for Maezie could go out. Then put away dishes and decided to make dinner. Woke Dave later from nap, we ate dinner, he went back to nap more and I did the dishes and gave Maezie water up there. So I started this post to you about an hour ago and just remembered that. I'll go with ADD instead of old age :} So now all but Henry is sleeping. Load in washer. Now going to hopefully finish the Christmas cards. I have ordered all the ornaments for next year and some presents and some stocking stuffers. Think its going to be a quiet night but I always take some Christmas movies. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss you and I love you. Forever and 69... Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. I was just looking at your picture and I fall even more in love with you. Earlier I was talking to the cat and telling her how I love her daddy but her daddy and I would want you and I still together, loving, making memories and friends with Dave. The three musketeers. Today was laid back yet also busy. Tomorrow or actually since it is 3:08 sat morning we are getting a bunch of snow. Heard 4-8 but WMUR's map shows we are in for 8-12. I know that our souls go to heaven. So no physical interaction. Are you all able to talk through your souls? Are you able to watch those you love here? So many questions. All I know is that I am far from ready to go but someday it will be wonderful to be with you and mom and dad. And Bob. My aunts and uncles and grandmothers. It would be nice to meet both my grandfathers for the first time. And Uncle Pop. So many. You and mom first. I am going to write more tomorrow. I have clothes in washer and dryer and I would like to get the Christmas cards done. Its not like when we were young and everyone mails out cards. I mail maybe 20? but get maybe 6-8. But I love the tradition. Especially for family out of state. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. I owe you big sorry's. We have been home 4 days. Know that every single day more than once a day I planned to write to you. Feel so bad. Of course every day I think of you and I miss you and I love you. This morning I woke up and I don't know if I had been dreaming but the first thing I thought of was 5 1/2 years ago I lost my best friend and my all and what we could have done in those years. I don't know if widows still grieve and miss and love their partners after all this time. All I know is how I feel. The day you passed and the feelings I had with you have not diminished at all. We went to Tifs sunday to sunday. And the entire week was amazing. Alyssa was in heaven. They had bought 2 new sea doos. And everyday they went out one to two times. She asked us if we can buy her one for Christmas and leave it at Tifs. Another day she asked Tif if she and us can split the cost for her birthday. I don't think she has ever asked us for anything. She just hints. lol She had 7 days to hang out with Ellie. She has no close cousins, is a single child and the covid keeps her home so no school. Many many children and having a hard time with the covid. They are working very hard to find the treatment for it. And they think they have one now. Will do for elderly and people with underlying illnesses first. We qualify for both but we'd like to wait. We are quarantining right now until next monday. We were 100 % safe in FL. But the plane was sardines to and from. what was cool though is if anyone was traveling by themselves they had a whole row of seats to them selves. Liked that and not one time was their any problem with anyone and mask. That was wonderful too. Our little punk had a friend over monday night and in the night the friend spiked a fever. Mom took her to hosp. Little one had covid. How sad. So our little one, mom and dad are quarantining. if they get any symptoms they will be tested. There are still some that don't feel there is any problem but I think that may be getting better. NH and ME getting hit hard with the virus. But so are all the other states. I think we'll see better numbers after the holidays. I can't imagine not spending Christmas with the kids but we will. PC said that the day they come for Christmas if she has to intubate she will refuse to come and we won't be able to talk her into it. She said when she and doctor has to intubate its because the patient is at his/her worse and she won't take that chance of us getting sick. Some are sad they can't see their family. I would be too but this will be over and we will all get our lives back and the bottom line is keeping ourselves safe so we can keep others safe. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Always and forever...Your "Reggie"

Hi sweet heart. Tomorrow we leave for FL. I am going to see if I can do this by phone. I used to be able to with an old phone and never could figure out how to find fosters with this phone. But I will have plenty of smart people with electronics to help. Omar, Tif and three grandkids. Today was a busy day with wrapping up the packing. Tomorrow just need meds, phone/chargers and toiletries. Up at 7:30 then leaving at 8:45. Monday they are having their new boat delivered so that will be fun. We will be able to see Ellie cheer. I think? soccer is closed to all but the kids on the teams. It is supposed to be high 70's all week. Tif sent me pic of weather for the week and said its looing like a cold front. I laughed. Right now in New England that would be a heat wave lol
I am going upstairs in a few to go through the backpacks and my carry on. We are armed with 6 packets of sanitizing wipes for plane seats and bathroom. we are armed with hand sanitizer each and Alyssa and I are going with a couple mask and Dave has 8 of the paper mask. I will try to write more tomorrow. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Late afternoon yesterday boy did I not feel well. And again today. Stomach was burning and pain. LIke acid reflux maybe? Never had it so not sure. But all is better now. Have all presents wrapped and accounted for. Have all suitcases filled except some clothes. Put all money and gift cards in my back pack instead of suitcases to feel better. 2 more days. Called in for valium to and from FL. Only take one each way but asked for 3 to take 1 1/2 each way. I don't want to be doped up due to having Alyssa along but 1 each way just not enough. Hate flying as you well know and have observed. Its 2:23 am. Dave and all furry family asleep. I am in the middle of watching a Christmas movie. Try to watch one or two a day. Dave doesn't watch any. As of midnight last night the governor has mandated mask every where. Outside and inside. There will be those who won't do that and who will disagree but Sununu was on the news and he showed the numbers. I doubt anyone likes to wear mask, I know Dave and I don't like it a bit. But we will abide by the safety rules and do it. Until we are all on board its going to take longer for us all to get back to the way we were. I had Dave buy a box of paper mask because he can breathe in the better. He'll wear what he has here and take the new ones to FL. I don't think we'll be needing to wear mask much as they have walmart food delivery, they don't go anywhere except when kids have their cheering and soccer. I am washing all our mask and will have a couple of them for Alyssa Dave and I. I also have the liquid hand sanitizers for each of us. I think I may not have enough sanitizer napkins so I'll be buying some before we go. That way before we sit in our seats on the plane we can each wash them and have them for the airport and the plane bathrooms. We do all we can because we don't want to get sick, we don't want to give it to anyone else if we don't even know we have it. We see it as two choices. Taking the ounce of prevention and hopefully stay safe and keep others safe around us or being careless, break the safety precautions and maybe getting the virus and passing the virus on? So there you have it. Out of the home of The Bryants haha. If you were still here as sick as you were I don't know if anywhere would have been safe for you. I know one thing there would be nowhere you need to be but at home. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss you and I love you, very much. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. How are you? I wish you could answer that. We just had in one day 462 new positives in NH. I don't know but that may be the most we have had this entire year in one day. Its going crazy. We have 8 days until we fly south to see Tif and family. Hoping we can still go but certainly even more nervous now. We got tested to feel safer for us and them. Both negative and we have been almost 100 % staying home until we go. We will test when we get back as well. Though they go nowhere unless it is completely outside. I feel so bad for kids. And I thank God I have no kids still at home. The decision to send to school or not. Big one. Send them to school because they are all so sad and depressed but risk them getting covid. Keep them home and watch them fall behind in school, no peer interaction, depression. OK, so on to happier things. Biden has picking his team for the new term. And the first thing he did was put together a task force to go after the virus. Everyone here is doing well. Staying home, being safe. We are all going to do Christmas the day after thanksgiving down with Tif and family. She said that we are doing Christmas for last year and this year. Yay lol. I was thinking about mom last night. I think of her alot anyway. I wish I knew how she was doing. She was already an angel here she must be way up there in heaven. If you can please tell her how much I love her and miss her. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. Oh yeah, I was up until 5:30 and can now say except for a couple things still coming in the mail I have wrapped all presents and filled the stockings. And we now have 4 suitcases and one carry on to bring all the things we have bought Tif and family. I miss you and I love you, very much. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Since sunday today is the first day I got out. The air felt great but it was cold. I have either been wrapping Christmas presents, stuffing stockings or sleeping a lot. in 9 days we are flying with Alyssa to FL to spend thanksgiving week with Tif and family. NH is blowing up last 2 weeks give or take. First many days 100 plus new positives, then started going into the 200's. Today they think we hit 400 +. We are a little concerned that we may not be able to get into FL or if we do will NH let us back in NH? Not going to worry alot. We'll know closer to that time. Its going to be one of the best times being with them for the holiday. Nothing better than family. But it will be hard to not be spending it with Pat/Tom. We have 3 suitcases full with presents to bring there. Thank God 2 suitcases will be free because Dave is a verteran. I am really tired. May get to bed within the hour. Have a big mess from the gifts I have wrapped and the stuff to put away. Jef, every day I miss you and everyday I am so much still in love with you. Some times I still pray that you can come back. I will write more tomorrow. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Not a lot to say today. I have not left the house since sundy. Got our virus test back yesterday. Both of us negative. We knew it because health wise we feel great. But we are going to FL for thanksgiving and Tif and us too wanted to be safe before going down south. We are going to do the same thing when we get back. Dave's brother Clarence passed away of covid. No one has seen him for at least 20 years but Wayne was his emergency contact. He was in Nebraska. Today is Veterans Day sweet heart. Thank you for your sacrifice. Especially so far away from everyone in Viet Nam. Always my hero. Today was going to the bank and the post office. Glad Dave reminded me that its Veterans day. May order pizza from Rogers. Have plenty of certs for 1/2 off. Won't eat in though. Will bring home. We are going to avoid going in places as much as we can before we head to FL. I am kind of scared because you know how I hate to fly and now in the situation we are all in with the virus. But really excited to see the twins. And Tif and Omar. I miss you so much. I love you so much. Can you tell mom, dad, bob and anyone else I miss them? And can you tell all those in my family thank you for their service. I love you. I will write more tomorrow. mty, ltt.

Hi sweet heart. Today should be the day we will know who will be the President for the next 4 years. But as you used to tell me, don't spend the money until its in your hand. I still carry that with me. It does look like it will be Biden but we'll see. I read that they are giving Biden extra security. How sad would it be if he needs it. Winning or losing is no reason for danger. Its a free country and we are all blessed to be able to have the right to vote. I feel bad for both the republicans and the democrats because both believe in their party and both feel the US will be better off with their party so both parties will be very let down if their parties do not win. Today I have chiropractor appt. Was supposed to be yesterday. I went but I went at the wrong time so I am going today. after that taking someone for testing. Don't worry, have not been around them for about 2 weeks and we feel great, Dave and I. Its a tough call because all symptoms are the same as cold and flu but I am insisting. Outside of that its been quiet and kind of a bit boring here. But last night I did finally get the entire "Old" smoking room done. Next it upstairs to start up there. I keep telling Dave we need to clean out the garages first. Before its too cold. I talked with the airline last night. We had bought tickets last december to go see Tif and gang in march. We put that on hold due to covid. Now, instead of flying mon to and fri back we can go wed and back fri or go sun to sun. Part that will be hard is it is Thanksgiving week. Hoping Tweesa can do most of it. And we can find someone to fill in. 7 days away from Maezie and others going to be really hard. We have slowed down alot on dining out. But this week end I think I'd like to go out. Well I guess thats all for now folks. I miss you and I love you so much sweet heart. I will always miss you and love you. I will write more tomorrow. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Today was so weird. I woke alot but could not get up. Finally up about 2:30 this afternoon. Around 4 went and voted then off to food shop. Stopped and got KFC for cat, dog, Dave and I. After supper I was tired so I went to sleep. Woke up around 2 am. Decided to clean out drawers. Good idea and got some cleaned but still have a couple left. it is now 4:43 am. Just checked how the voting is going. Trump and Biden in a close race. Trump already claimed victory but it is far from over. I have to go to bed sweet heart. I am having hard time keeping eyes open.

Hi sweet heart. Jef, our country is failing bad. The virus, how mean people have gotten etc. I have faith in our country and God that we will get back to who we were but in the meantime it is frightening. Tomorrow is the final voting day for our presidential race. Trump vs Biden. I will not put on here who I am voting for. I do wish everyone would vote. They say we have the right to vote and they have the right not to vote. And it is their decision. I just don't get it. Any hoo the count will be in shortly but it will be far from over. Had a great time with Alyssa and her friend Alyssa (yup, both named Alyssa). Alyssa told me to make it easier and call her punk. OMG how funny is that? That was your name for her when she was little. And for last 1 to 2 years once in awhile she will ask if she can go clothes shopping the the grammie closet. Saturday night when we all got back from the movies I asked them what they wanted to do and she told her friend that she'd like to go to Grammazon to shop for clothes. Bout burst a seam laughing. Get it? Amazon? But in this case Grammazon? She is just as funny as you are grampa. You have left so many legacies and I am glad humor is one of the best ones. But she and Autumn both love to read as well. One time someone asked me, bob, tom and frank what dad left us for a legacy after he passed and we all said we loved to read. as far as mom that would be tough. she to me is the best mom anyone could ask for. kind, giving, loving, hard worker, had our backs and never would she not be there for anyone. I am just like her but not as much. I always wish I had her strength. and more. I am trying to figure out when to go vote tomorrow. it is 8 am to later evening. I worry if too long a wait my back with give me a problem. It is 8:24 pm right now. I am going to not nap and hope to be in bed between 2 and 3 and get up early. I miss you Jef and there is no way I can even say how much. We are doing ok here but you are my best friend, you were my lover, you had my back every day of more than 23 years. You never scared me with yelling or fist or anything bad. I know I am to be grateful that I had you for 23 years but I selfishly wish you were still here. I wonder if we'd still be in the same home. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss you and I love you. forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Dave had his surgery yesterday. The biggest of the two was his right foot. On all toes but big toe they had to take out a little piece of bone. To keep them standing up until they heal they put in each toe a push pin but the kind that have the balls on the ends. Last night while we were playing cards one fell out so i called and got the after hours nurse and asked her to take a message for when office opens in a few hours from now. I have a chiropractor appt tomorrow and will hopefully be able to get Dave in around that but if not I will cancel. It is 5:50 am but since Dave went to bed I have been working a little more in storage room and now working on the old smoking room. I will probably just do another hour. I purchased a new thing for the new cat. Its to climb on, scratch pads, hanging thing to swat around on, a little tunnel and a place to sleep on. Dave put it together. She has so far sniffed but she was interested so here's hoping she will like it. You'd love her sweet heart. I will write more tomorrow. I miss you and I love you, very much. mty, ltt.

Hi sweet heart. Been busy yesterday and today. Almost completely done with every thing out of storage room in basement. Just a tiny bit done. Then all the Christmas presents wrapped and unwrapped will go up to living room and all the bins for yard sale will go upstairs to the office. Wound up with a lot of bins so may have small yard sale in couple weeks. Watched the last presidential debate last night. Irritating some but no where as bad as they first one they had. I cannot wait until it is over. Its a mean race. Tomorrow are going to Pat/Toms for dinner and cards. Big brother making me shepherd's pie. I told Dave I can make him steak and sweet potatoes or spam and an omelet. He does not like shepherd's pie. By the end of daylight sunday my plan is to have the camper completely cleaned out on our yard so we can put up for sale. All bins (with Dave's help) yardsale items upstairs and all the rest back into the storage room. Which for the most part is summer stuff and Christmas stuff. May not get alot done tomorrow though. Dave and I had Chiro appts today. Dave's first. He got call yesterday that his foot surgery will be monday. A friend of mine has the 4 prong cane for him. We were just making plans last night with Jen and Tiffany to go to FL two weeks from monday. Tomorrow too I am making a large pan of Lasagna for Tom. Not baking it though. Bringing to them tomorrow when we go there. I miss you and I love you and I will write again tomorrow. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. How are you? I wish you could actually tell me. Yesterday was a hard day. Sick. Almost all symptoms of covid but they are same as cold. Waited to decide if should test. Felt better today so I think I have a head cold. If does not get better or gone tomorrow I will probably go get tested to be sure. I have almost the whole storage room in the basement cleaned out. You should see the poker room. So many bins with yard sale stuff. So many bins keeping for new home. Once that room is done I told Dave we need to clean out both garages before it is freezing outside. Tomorrow Dave is getting all bags of cans into trailer and truck then if I feel up to it I will go with him to turn them in. The two of you did that for years. I never knew how messy it is to do that. Friday I am going in to finish up the camper in our yard. Almost done. Mostly clean the counters and floors and bathroom. Then can put up for sale. Sat night we are heading to Pat and Toms for cards. Tom is making his little sister (wish I were little haha) sheperds pie. I am surprising him with an entire cake pan of lasagna. Tomorrow is 1 year no smoking. So we are going to try to find someplace yummy to celebrate. We would normally do seafood but recently we went to two seafood places we love and the seafood is small. They explained due to the Covid but I don't remember why. I believe them though because you, me, Dave and so many people we know love both places. I think I will ask for suggestions. In the meantime sweet heart, I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. I am so sorry for not writing for 2 days. Two reasons are sleep has been even weirder. And before the pain I did many bins in the storage room. Trying to week out things before we sell next spring. And the storage room is the biggest in the house. Breaking into trash (very little) yard sale and taking with us. I swear to you and our almighty that I think of you constantly and miss you constantly. And each time I feel so bad. You are my best friend, my soul mate, my husband and my wings. Dave and I just talked about you this morning. I asked him if he hates that I still love you. Absolutely not he said. That he loves you and every day he misses you and he knows how much you and I loved each other and how much he and I love each other. I really do love him. Its just a different love. Well, sorry, didn't mean to write a book. Sat night was poker. Dave and I each won. Not much. We only do nickle, dime, quarter, 3 raise limit. Its not about how much we win. Its about being with friends, family, eating good food, talking, laughing and hopefully a little extra cash. Like when you and I played at Bills. Tomorrow I have an eye appointment. I have never had cataracts but I do wonder if I have them now. Poor Dave is still waiting for a surgery date for his feet. I hate the pain he is in knowing I cannot do anything about it. I am still waiting for my surgery date for the stimulator to be put in. Like mom had. It is 7:35 pm. Dave napping. I have not eaten anything today so now I am about to go hunting to see what looks good. I will write more tomorrow my sweet sweet love. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt.

Hi sweet heart. We came home from the last day of camping yesterday until May 1st. Really short camping season missing may and june. It was sad. Dave does not know how to winterize the camper because a friend of ours always does it. And he and his wife been ill for a long time so they didn't use their seasonal this year,. And all of us missed them. Couple guys said they could tell Dave how to do it but he found someone to show him how to do it. I said that we are at the age that telling us how to do something is like telling us over the phone directions to get someplace we have never been to. LOL. I had already packed stuff up and brought home the week before but because of our backs what would have taken another couple a couple hours it took us hours. But today I did go for my first Chiropractor's appointment. My neck still hurt but my back felt great. Dave wants to do it now so on monday I will have my 2nd appt and it will be his 1st appt but he was with me today so he knows how it works. Really loved the doc and I don't know the position of the other male but loved him too. Today was kind of messed up. Jen had asked me to bring her to sanford today for eye appt. I went to pick her up at 10:15. Went up and went inside and Alyssa said "you're going to be mad at mom". Low and behold she forgot. But the silver lining to that if I sat in her wheelchair, she sat in bed and we had mom/daughter time for 1 1/2 hours. Then Lori's daughter was bringing over Lori's cat for us to take in. Was to be between 1-2 and she didn't show up until 2:45 so I asked her to bring the cat home and we can try tomorrow or sunday. Only reason is the poor cat does not know us. Not going to set her free in the home and neither of us here. I want to stay down in the old smoking room and it be just she and I and Dave. I bought her new bowls, new bed, new little box with cover, food, snacks. I have always thought wonderful about those that can take in older pets. They need love, shelter, food and drink. But I have always been too afraid. You know how I am, I literally make them family and to lose one after only couple years would all but kill me. But she needs a home. Its stupid. She doesn't know us but I already love her. Lori had named her squeaky. We are going to keep the name. Thats all she knows. I will write more tomorrow. No more camping so should be able to write just about every day unless we do the cruise early 2021. or stay a night at a hotel. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69 Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Very weird day but good. Last night we went to bed 1-1:30. We decided we were not going to camp today because rain all day and into the night. I woke late afternoon when Dave came to clean the cages. We do this every tuesday. Up one hour then back to sleep until 9:30 tonight. So I slept 19 hours. Now I am wide awake. Dave and I played a game of kings and he whooped me. I didn't even eat all day until late tonight when I made some oyster stew but still tired so didn't eat much. Too bad I can't have a month of that. Thinner and more rested haha. We get up tomorrow when we want and we head to the campground for the last over night because the next day is the last day of the season. Saturday we are having a poker game here. We always have alot of fun. Almost always the 7 of us. I have to say that I am tired. I am going to check banking acct, aol and fb then back to bed. I miss you and I love you. So much. mty, ltt.

Hi sweet heart. We came home about an hour ago. Dave went straight to take a nap. We have to take out all the yard sale stuff we are having in the spring that is behind the car I had co signed for so we can get that car out and drop at garage so they can look at it tomorrow. we have to unpack all we brought home from the camper. we have to figure out dinner. So I brought it in, I unpacked, I have laundry going and I will be out to move all that stuff. You and Dave were so spoiled by me. For 2 days I have not been able to find my phone. Dave went through the car twice, nothing. I was going to look myself today but it will be dark so I will look tomorrow. I have already prayed to St. Anthony. Just got our new phones last winter so if I have to get another one I will be paying on both. But worse than that is all the pictures on it. Really bummed about that. St. Anthony has helped me in the past finding moms Cross necklace (remember that)? And my keys a couple times. Tonight after all is done I am doing nothing. I will be in my pj's, on the couch and maybe have Dave be my go getter haha. At night he is always my go getter and does spoil me. Its more than mutual though. We are going back to stay at the camper tuesday and wednesday nights then getting pumped out on thursday. Moving a couple pieces of furniture so we can bring in the two pop outs. Before that everything we be put in the car that has to go home for the winter. Dryer sheets will be EVERYWHERE. then the last thing is while Dave is outside flooding around the camper, under the camper, in and outside of the shed with moth balls. We have a ton of them. And I will be inside the camper sweeping and washing the floors and making sure all bins and sealed. It alot of work camping to start the season and end the season but for the total of maybe 5 days we have a camper on our own site from May 1st to Oct 15th. Very much worth it. I have so much fun with Dave sweet heart but down to it I would love if you were still here camping. And Dave does tell me every so often he would give me up in a heart beat if you could be here. You are such an easy man to love. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo PS in 11 days it will be 1 years since I stopped smoking. Don't know where we are going to celebrate (restaurant) but I will have your necklace on.

Hi sweet heart. We headed up to the camp where Dave, Tom and Rob (you don't know Rob) took down our canopy. Then we went to Willies, Kayla turned 21 and Willies b'day was yesterday. That was fun. We got home a few minutes ago. Dave is searching my car for my phone. I thought I'd say hello and I love you then feed the guinea pig and bird. Then we are heading back to camp for the night. Remember Ron the electrician? He is coming to the camp and putting in all new lights. 8 of them. We just hope we bought the right ones. Then we'll be at pat/toms site for a fire. Next year we are going to start using our site more often. I will write more tomorrow when we come back from the camp. We are going back tues and wed night. Thursday the last day until May 1st.

Hi sweet heart. Bob B had a guys day today. All beers and food provided. From 1 to 6. But it went longer. Dave called for a ride home at 7:30. He came home, wanted to watch tv and play kings. Remember that game? we played two games and I won them both. But for 2 days straight (wed and thurs) we played 7 games total and I only won 1 or 2 of them. I dropped him off at 1 at Bob B's then met Jen at China Palace. Then I went to Somersworth Walmart and got to shop without someone nagging (ahem Dave haha) are you almost done? Then home, laundry, swept what used to be the smoking room, did the dishes and watched tv. And now he has gone to the living room to watch his shows and I am about to do the same. We have to get up and go to the campground for 11. Then off to Willies for Kayla b'day party and today is actually Willies b'day. So I will say good night. Shoot I just remembered have tub running.

Hi sweet heart. It is 4:14 am. Yesterday we were very busy at the seasonal. Dave put away all the outside yard decorations, the chairs etc. while I packed up food to bring home, blankets, sheets etc. We were there for a few hours. We are not done but mostly. Came home, Dave napped, I did laundry then made dinner then Wayne came over. Normally not on thursdays, he normally comes on wednesdays but they needed to get their cat to the vet. After he left Dave and I watched tv. I woke up and he was still watching tv. Said I needed to go to bed. And woke about 20 minutes ago. Hate that because now probably up the rest of the night. He is going to a guys get together this afternoon at Bob B's. I love when he can get with the guys. After you I think he misses Bob B the most. So anytime they get together I am really happy for him. I am dropping him off because you just know with the boys there will be beer lol. I am meeting Jen for a late lunch. We won't be going to camp tonight because I am pretty sure Dave will be going to bed early. Tomorrow the deck room comes down then Dave and I are going to dinner then maybe a movie then we will head to the camp. In the morning (sunday) the electrician is coming to camp to put in all new LED lights in the camper. Next thursday the camp officially closes until May 1, 2021. So we are going back tues and wed night. Going to be a very long winter. Invited to two different halloween parties but we have declined the invitation because of the covid. I put in left over supper in the microwave so I am off to eat. I will write more to you tomorrow. I miss you and I love you and you will always be My Donnie. mty, ltt.

Hospitals are booked up right now for surgeries except emergencies. When he has it done they were adamant that he HAS to use a cane. I am going to look for one the have the 4 prongs on the bottom to help with his balance. Wayne will be here tonight. That is always fun. We didn't see him last week. He wasn't feeling well. Trying to figure out if we will go to camp tomorrow and come home sun. Then go back mon and tues. Dave and I played kings a little while ago. I won. Yesterday we played twice and I won those two. I kept telling him if he keeps playing my cards I'd get him and now I go for the gusto. Tee Hee Hee. Its such a fun game. I wish we knew it when you were still here with me.

Hi sweet heart. Jef, I am so sorry I did not write sun after we came home from camp and yesterday (monday) Too much to explain but last 2 days were crazy. Nothing bad just all over the map. I do hope you know that even if I don't write I can promise on all our kids and grand babies that there has NEVER been a day when I have not missed you or have not thought about you and many times I talk out loud to you. Tomorrow Wayne will be here. Thursday going to the camp to start bringing things home as this w/e coming is the last w/e of the season. The camps official last day is next thursday. We won't be staying over thursday (so far we don't think so) but we will be there sat and sun and then we hope to go 2 out of the 4 days next week. Its going to be such a long winter. The political battle is roaring. But in about 27 the election will finally be here. With no camping and the covid still going on boring. Ed came today. And he surprised Dave and I by buying each of the clam chowder and everything but mayo to make lobster rolls. Holy moly, so good. Then he fixed my printer. We were all good with distance apart. He wore a mask but we didnt need to. We live with each other so we know we won't give to each other (Dave and I) and he wore a mask for all but eating. Jef you would never believe what he looks like. Or maybe you've been able to see him. He has lost 170 plus lbs. Deb has lost 112. We have not seen her yet but man thats so great. He went from 5x to 1x. I told him recently he needed smaller glasses cuz his face is so thin. He has new glasses now and looks great. You know Dave, Wayne and I each bet $5 a week for the football pool the 3 of us have? we forgot the first week but nfl week 2 I won, then week 3 Wayne won then week 4 Dave won. My turn next lol. We take out $10 of the $15 and leave the other $5 for the next week. Well my wonderful best friend husband I am going to close now. My eyes hurt more than the normal this evening and night. Thank God I finally bit the bullet and got an eye doctor appt this month. Speaking of that I called Daves orthopedic office today. He has an appt at 9 am tomorrow.

Hi sweet heart. So glad I get to write to you. First the carpenter came by and fixed the back of garage and where back side of the house was pushed out. Second is it has been raining and sometimes pouring today so we have opted to go to camp later. Matter of fact Dave is napping. I made the spaghetti up and bringing to camp. Camp stoves are small and to have more than one pan is a pain in the backside. So I am writing to my "fit". So many questions on Heaven. Is it real? Can you see how we are doing down here? Do you really send signs? That one I believe because of the butterflys. I love you so much Jef. That will never change, I promise. We will be together someday including Dave and the 3 amigos will be together again. Will I be able to feel your hug and your kiss at least spiritually? So soon I will wake Dave and we will head out. Tomorrow we are going to the new Golden Coral in Manchester. After that we'll drop miss Alyssa off at home and we will go back to camp. Do you know that every few months I ask her is she remembers you? She always says yes. And on facebook they post past post and each and every time i will share any pic with her or Autumn depending who is in the picture with you. I am very happy that I love taking pictures. One day I will make up a collage for them both. I will write asap sweetheart. I miss you and love you. mty, ltt. Forver and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Blew it again. Was going to write last night and again fell asleep. When I woke up after mid night Dave was still up. That was a surprise. He said he came downstairs but I was asleep. Yesterday was a good day, productive. Dave went to camp to work on the shed on our site and get it ready for the winter. I stayed here and finished packing for us to go back up today (fri to sunday or monday) One more w/e after this. Sad to say the least. I also got outside to our camper we want to sell. Started going through that. We are leaving many things because we are not planning on ever getting another camper. We have all we need in the seasonal camper. Going to miss camping with the grandkids. Many years of fun with them. On to new adventures. PC's b'day was 9/19 and we are all still trying to find a good day to go celebrate with dinner with her. She is really busy, with 2 kids, a house, a husband and full time plus Emer Rm RN. Remember those days? Later today we head to camp so it will be prob 3 days. Monday we are going to meet Jens new "friend" at a restaurant in Dover. She seems to care alot and he seems to be a good guy. His son and Alyssa gets along like siblings lol. So my sweet man I guess I will close for now. I will try to write sooner if we have to come home for anything this w/e. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Once again it is really late. 2:20 am. When Dave got up at the camp he and Al did something under the camper. Some kind of support. I got up. We played a couple games of Kings. Then I packed us up and we went home because his doc was calling him instead of an in person appt. We waiting almost a 1/2 hour. Dave says are you sure of the date? I said yes, the 29th. Today was only the 25th. oops my bad. so back to ME to pick up Miss Alyssa. We have seen her a couple times with Jen but its been about a month since a sleep over. We went to eat then the movies then she wanted to go to her room to do the teen thing, tv, phone. We take her home after breakfast tomorrow because the LRC games are starting at 3. LRC is a game with dice. If you roll an R you pass whatever it is you are all playing for to the person on the right. Dave and I have always done the disc that come with the game. If you roll a L you pass to the left. If you get a circle you do nothing. Tomorrow a whole bunch of us, different tables, different groups will play. But they play for quarters and scratch tickets. So we are bring a roll of quarters and 3-$2 dollar scratch tickets. Sounds fun. Then we all break up and head back to campers to do what we will for supper than all meet back at the site with desserts. I am making 2 chocolate cream pies. Over the last 5 plus years since you left I have done so many new things and I ALWAYS think about how I wish you were here with us all to share in everything. And I know just how much fun you would have and how much fun everyone would have because of you. I need to pack back up the clothes I washed and get to bed. Oh Jef you really have no idea how much I miss you. I hate that you had to leave so soon. I hate that I don't get to be in a hug with you or see your eyes, or kiss those lips. I hate that I don't wake up with you or go places with you. I hate everything that we don't have anymore and knowing that I believe in heaven yet there is no proof I will ever be with you. I will write more sunday or monday (not sure if we are coming home sunday or monday) and in the meantime I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hello sweet heart. I wound up not being able to sleep all night. Finally around 8 am I was able to get on and off sleep. Finally got up at 11, hot bath and now writing to my "fit". I hope that in Heaven there is only sweet peace. And that you can see anything good down here and nothing bad because for now its pretty scary here. I still have faith, that we'll find a cure for covid and rest in the people. Dave left earlier to go work with Al to put the molding around the new dining room. The floor we put in is a mixture of grey tiles. So we opted for white molding. Both vehicles are up at the site so need to wait for Dave to come get me. Have to do Post Office, Walmart and Market basket. And thats all folks. We are picking Miss Alyssa up about 4:30 tomorrow and bring her home saturday so I will be able to write to you both tomorrow and saturday. Yay. In the meantime sweet heart, I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hello my blue eyed blonde hair adonis sweet heart. I owe you a big apology. It is 3:26 am. Thursday. We came home yesterday, wednesday and my plan as always was to write to you. First while still at camp Pat called and asked us to go out for dinner. And while there Dave called Wayne letting him know we would probably be about 15 minutes late. Once we got home we had a great time with Wayne til about 9?? From there I did a jet tub, later Dave and I watched tv and he rubbed my feet. Then all the laundry that kept me busy and now I realize it is not wednesday. Its already thursday. I am so sorry baby. Tomorrow Dave and friend Al will put up the molding and the last thing is to put up a molding that is the same as what goes up the wall. I don't really know what that means though. While they do that I have errands to run. I won the big pot of $15 last week in NFL. but only $10 was profit. We are usually in the CBS sports pool and its so amazing but the woman that runs it isn't running it this year. Bummer. We will stay at camper tonight and around 4:30 friday we will pick up miss Alyssa and have her for the night then drop her off sat and we'll go back to the camper. I keep wondering if it would be a good thing to have seasonal here and another in the south. When we sell the house, instead of buying something else. Don't know and we certainly do not have to decide now. Before leaving for campground later today I will write to you. I miss you sweetheart and I love you. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Sorry this will be quick. We are still camping until tomorrow but Dave wanted to bring trash to house so it can go out tomorrow. So while he did this I got on here. Today the new floor in the camper was finished. By a fellow camper we met 2-3 years ago. He is also a seasonal with his wife. Both really nice. We are going back to camp in a couple minutes and sharing a fire at their place tonight. They were at our camp last night. Dave picked up the molding and he is putting it on tomorrow and then....WALA....the floor will be done. Oh Jef how much do I love you and miss you? No way to describe it. We are coming home tomorrow. Going to start laundry and wait until Dave takes a nap then I have a list we need for Walmart. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and always...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Home from camp. Going back tomorrow. A friend from campground going to help Dave put in new floor in camper. Couple days ago they already put in floor (just the wood). They took it out today due to wall wet and this way they can put heater on both. We are going to pick out floor tomorrow. I am going to go online and see what there are for choices. Pat/Tom put in new kitchen floor. Peel and stick so checking that out first. Our baby was 39 yesterday. I posted on FB from you, me and Dave. can you believe it? 39? WHOA. Our last will be 40 in one year. Happened faster than would have thought of right? She is going to let us know a place and a date that works to take her to dinner for her birthday. Outside of what I just wrote not a thing new. But we haven't been bored. So I guess I will call it a day and write to you tomorrow. If we wind up staying up to camp to finish the floor I will write more tuesday. Sweet heart. I miss you and I love you, so much. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. I'm sorry did not post yesterday. Had ladies lunch here. Outside in garage like always. Told by two that a restaurant Jen/I went to end of last week had staff (one) test positives so many calls later found this to be true. We have not been around many except for yesterday and at camp. But at camp we make sure we are following guidelines. Dave and I feel 100 % good. And it was not a staff in the restaurant part of it. And although there is the saying never say never we are pretty sure we're good. But the responsibility we feel had me calling a couple. and we are not going to go anywhere for another week since it has already been a week. We are heading to camp to do some indoor work but won't be joining any campers tonight. And we are going back home tomorrow. After this it is so sad to say only 2 more w/e's and 4 days. Such a long wait in between seasons. But we have PIF for the next season and hopefully we will see some over the winter. Now I just don't know about going into any restaurants. I think we will and that this time was a fluke. I wish you were here. You'd have us all laughing and in good spirits. Not much got you down. I miss you and I love you so much My Jef. I will write more tomorrow. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. No big plans today. Should be laid back. Finish up last load, pack for camp for next week end. We only have 3 more week ends. Can't remember if I told you the table set for the camper doesn't fit and they don't take returns. Pretty sad statement right there. We found one last night. None is store but one ordered and may be in on truck today. Hair appointment today. Thinking about getting a lot cut off but don't know if I will be brave enough. And as you would say, "there you have it". I'm sorry so short sweetheart. Most days are livelier. But I know of like the breather day once in awhile. So I will write more tomorrow. I pray you are doing great and can hang out with all those you love that are there with you. I miss you and I love you very much. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Get to actually write to you today after all. Had to come home to tap the Pats and the Buccs games for tomorrow. Tomorrow is 1 year since Dave quit smoking. Great Job Dave. next month will be one year for me. I took him to Kellys Row so he could get their prime rib. He loves their prime rib dinners. We finally found a new table and matching chairs for the camper. Been looking at many and at many different places. It is tall with tall chairs but we love it. Tall for the camper but we'll get used to that. we love that they are 2 shelves under and I saw one cabinet so I don't know if there are more. Tonight going to have the fire at our site. Not many people at all last night. But more should be here tonight I hope. We will be home tomorrow sweet heart. So I will be writing. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt.

9/11/20 Hi sweet heart. I just looked at your picture on here and my heart went straight to pain. How I miss you. No one can ever possibly know. Many miss you. Especially Dave, the kids, grandkids and Pat and Tom. BUT no one more than me. I am meeting Jen at little Miss Sophies at noon. Then have to go stop at Dave's doc to ask them to give my phone to the doctor to see the pics I took of his foot and advise us on next step. Then if they cut the rug for the camper I have to pick that up as well. And pack the rest of Dave's clothes for the week end. Going to be a cold week end so no pool or shorts. But the fun will still be there, the good people and fires. I miss camping with you. You'd like all the people I have met and become friends with. Decided the date for next girls get together at the house. Next Thursday. If all go there will be 9 of us but the odds of that are slim to nothing. lol. But so far there are 5. We also decided to not have poker this month and will start back up next month until next may when camping starts again. So, as you would say, there you have it. I am glad got to write today. Probably not tomorrow. Internet very bad this year. But home Sunday so I will write to you Sunday. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo PS, today is 19 years since the tragedy of 9-1-1 so if you have made any friends with any of them please tell them that we have not forgotten.

Hi sweet heart. Kind of a busy day. Especially for Dave. Couple days ago he had ripped out both benches and the table in the camper dining room. Since then its been miserable for me to find anyone who sells the odd size. Today I finally went to Bourques Flooring. Not real sure how to spell that. I gave them the measurements and they are cutting it tomorrow. He has been up there for 2 days. Last night he came home but he is staying there tonight. He has some to do before I get there tomorrow. Weird having the place to myself. And dang it, he is the one who gets up in the middle of the night to let Maezie out. Packed all our clothes for the week end. Meeting Jen at Little Miss Sophies for brunch tomorrow. Earlier PC called. Had a nice talk. Our grand daughter just finished what she needed for her permit to drive. Can not even understand how I sat for 31 hours til she came into the world and now Dec 8th she will be 16. Next year all 5 grandkids will be in High School. Alyssa freshman, the twins Ellie and Trey will be sophomores, Autumn will be a junior and H'elia will be a senior. I know you don't know H'elia. She is a niece of Herb. The daughter. Daughter of Herbs brother. Cannot recall his name. Anyway 3 years ago PC got permanent custody of her. I asked her what she'd like to call us and she asked if she can call us grammie and grampa. You know me. I was and I still am ecstatic to have another grand child. Just like mom right? Guess I will go get supper ready. With Dave not hear I am making a salad to have with yogurt and cottage cheese then knowing me I will probably make a choc cream pie or choc chip cookings. lol I will be at campground so you may not hear from me til sunday. I miss you and I love you so much. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Been at the campground since friday afternoon but came home early today. Had to wrap some presents for Willies new grand baby girl. Seen pics and she is adorable. I also needed to give more food and water to the Lily and Henry. We normally leave alot of food for the 2 days of camping but this being a long week end we are camping for 3 days. Getting close to end of season. I think about 5 more weeks? And its not looking good good for many more or no more swimming. Tonight we are doing a fire at our friends camp. Next week I have got to get off my behind and get down to City Hall to change name and address and find out where I have to go to vote. Last time voted I was "France" and still lived in Gonic. Also have to get the 3rd car registered so I can sell it. I am such a procrastinator lol. Outside of this life is pretty much same ole same ole. And thats not a bad thing right? I will write when we get back home (monday) tomorrow. I miss you and I love you. And I really hope there is a way for you to feel that. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. I am so sorry that its been a couple days. First day no excuse. Yesterday I woke at 10 am, talked with Dave then went back to sleep at 11am. Slept until Dave came with supper. Wayne came over but I didn't see him because I went back to sleep after dinner. I love his visits so that's a bummer. I was sick. Ear ache, sore throat. tired, All better today. I have to get to walmart this morning then myself and 7 of my female friends will be here for bring your own lunch. that is always so much fun. it usually last about 2 hours. except for Gina. she comes on her lunch. May go up to campground afterwards. I have gone completely through the entire camper except for the 3 bathroom drawers and I'd like to wash the two mirrors and the tub. we went through the shed on our site and between that and the camper we have 2 bins for a yard sale. i have also been slowly going through stuff at the house and have more stuff for the yard sale. I miss you so much My Jef. I wish I could talk to you, hug you, kiss you. I wish I knew if you hang around with bob or mom or dad? and do you get to be with uncle pop and your mom? and friends? we will be together someday. as much as I miss you I want to stay here for more years. I'd like to see great grand babies. see them all graduate high school and college. see them all find love. I will write tomorrow sweet heart. I really do miss you and love you.

Hi sweet heart. Its 6:07 am and I just woke a bit ago. Dave went to nap right after supper and I fell asleep accidentally (watching tv). I just woke and couldn't believe I slept that long. Dave has been sleeping a lot lately so I took his Bl Pressure sat night. It was ok but a bit high. It was a fun w/e camping. Saturday a bit wet but by camp fire time it was great. Friday nite was camp fire at our site and sat at Pat and Toms site. Sat during the day 4 of us ladies did couples cribbage. my partner and i won the first game then lost the next two games. Then we played LCR. Couple games of that. We are going to do LCR again soon with maybe more people and use quarters. Never did that before. Its a pretty fast game. Made ham in crock pot saturday night at camp. Have none left. We shared. We have been doing so much work at camp. Once we are done we are going to start room by room in the house. Today we are going to Tifs old house to pick up some things we have left there. Friday she closes on it for the sell. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss my blue eyed blonde adonis so much. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Its been 2 days since I have written and I am really sorry. We stayed at the camp sunday until pretty late. We got a bug in us and all saturday until supper Dave worked outside and I worked inside. That night we had a fire and a lot of our camping friends came. We all practice safety though. We have a big site so we keep couples together then space. Sunday we didnt leave the camper until mid day. We just hung out and played yatze and kings. Then Dave did more work outside and I inside. I went end to end in the camper. Looks so good. All I have now is to wash the mirrors (one I can't reach but Dave can) and the 3 bathroom drawers. We are going there today because on our deck there we have a very tall heavy duty plastic cabinet (taller than me) that we want to empty and go through. And we have the shed we want to go through. But we are coming home as Wayne will be here. I am hoping to soon start going through room by room and get rid of stuff and wean out stuff. We are planning on selling in a year. We want to downsize and get a double wide on our own land. Such a big place is getting hard on Dave. I wish you could come back Jef. If not permanent then visits. You couldn't possibly believe nor anyone else for that matter how much I miss you. On those days that I don't write make sure you understand that on no days do I not think of you, miss you or love you. And add to that that is how Dave feels as well. He misses his brother of another mother. His best friend. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. I woke at 5 this morning. I want to go back to bed but I don't think I will. I need to pack up both Dave and I. We are going to stay overnight in Lincoln with Alyssa and decide tomorrow morning if we will go to Whales Tale. Then head back to the house and grab what we need for camping for the w/e. We will drop Alyssa off first. Trying a new crock pot chicken recipe at the campground. Three couples have put together a get together. Dave and I will do that as well just don't know when. Corn hole is big at the camp and I recently found from walmart a pool corn hole game. Can't wait until that comes in. So being as we are going to be at hotel then camp I dont think I can post for those 3 days. I can from my phone but this year the internet is pretty bad at the campground. Couple people have bought boosters (I'm not even sure thats the right name} but we don't even know what that means lol. I will close right now. I hope I can write at least once over next three days.

Hi sweet heart. Very busy day today. And our backs have been telling us both that all day. Dave took apart the kitchen then scrubbed on hands and knees to do the floor. I got 5 or 6 loads done, cleaned Henrys birdcage. Did dishes, swept two floors down stairs and did the rug. We went for dinner at the China Palace tonight. Since we have been home I have done very little but I will get back to it to finish up whats left. Dave may be doing his bathroom because he said it was a mess. Think we are going to give going to the movies a shot. I have a ton of hand sanitizer and we both have a few mask. If we go it will be thursday. Wanna check into it more. Then we'll head to camp this week end. I would also like to go to water country. For now guess thats all folks lol. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt.

Hi sweet heart. Came back today from camping. Hard to believe we only have 2 months left before the season is over. Friday night I made Steak, mushrooms and cheese subs at campground. Made for Tom, Dave and a new camping friend Stephanie. She is about our age and we really like her and her husband. Saturday was a little chilly so Dave and I each spent the day getting things done. I cleaned out closet and fridge and freezer. Tom and a friend of ours Rick helped Dave get our porch screen room up. Dave did a lot outside. I made a crock pot of chicken and dumplings. So good. Put up some bars to make the easy up sturdier and raked. This morning our friends Amy and Rob did a brunch at their site. Their site is really nice. They did a great job setting it up. 8 of us went so there was a lot of food, fun, talks and laughs. Back to camper later then Pat Tom left first and we left later. Dave came right home and took a 5 hour nap and I did laundry. Then tv and started falling asleep so I wanted to make sure I wrote to you first. Jef, not one day goes by that I don't really miss you. I love you so much. I know we like all couples had our spats but far more than that was all the good times. Even sitting at the table and talking was good. Or side by side watching tv. Sometimes I would watch you sleep and just feel good. I was safe with you. You were my all. My best friend. So much more and so hard to not have that. I don't want to seem like I am not happy. I am really happy with Dave. Its just different but then again all relationships are different aren't they? I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss you and love you. mty, ltt.

Hi sweet heart. Such a bad nights sleep. Just couldn't shut my head off. Finally fell asleep for a couple hours. Nothing to do today. No plans except for a man we have had for things around the house will be here around 4 to give us an estimate on some window edges outside paining and under one of the awnings. I don't thin awnings is the right word but I don't know what they are called. Dave is at doc appt. Just a f/u from the cataract surgery. The company that did all that needed to be done with our boat has our boat and the guy called Dave so after his doc appt he is heading their way. Hoping not alot of money. Outside of that its supper, tv, snack, tv. Can you say boring lol. But we go tomorrow to the camp for the week end and that will be fun. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart.

Hi sweet heart. My apologies. I just got on and saw that nothing posted the 11th. But I have been copying my post for further use down the road and I found that this time my fault. I dont know why I did not post. Maybe not much to post? Pool for a short while with Alyssa, later Rogers pizza then on the way home Dave and Alyssa got an ice cream. Home couple of hours and I went to bed around 10. Boring right? Today didn't even get dressed until right before Wayne came to visit. So even more boring. Nothing planned for tomorrow either. Our grand daughter is now super afraid of the Covid so she no longer wants to go anywhere but errands with mom, our pool or inside ours and her home. Sad for her. So thats about it sweetheart.

Good morning sweet heart. In about 1/2 hour I will be waking Dave. We are heading to Canobie Lake Park. First time in all the years going there, we are not taking any kids. They are growing up. And with the Covid we will feel safer. Tomorrow is friday and I don't think we have much planned. We are going up to camp and I am meatball subs for us and Pat/Tom. Not sure if we will stay the night because I have some cooking to do for our sat night poker get together.
