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. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

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. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

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. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. I try to remember to wear in on Important days.

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.

Hi sweet heart. Oh how happy my printer is fixed. Not doing much today. Maybe clean a little. Supposed to be getting down pours. I really should get out to the camper we have here. Need to get all out and cleaned so we can put up for sale. Need to wait for another week to see if Tweesa wants it. Dave went to doc today. They are doing surgery on both feet. 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. I hate that you aren't here. I will always hate it. God how I miss you. I live my life and I have a good life and Dave loves me very much but missing you and loving you never lessons. Saturday the deck screen room coming down then going off to Willies daughters birthday. Then fire at night. Sunday electrician coming to the camper. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart.

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. I cannot go though only the patient. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I will go to his house and picked them up. He also said that he will come over soon to see why I cannot get the printer going. He's such a sweet heart. And my best male friend. Today nothing planned. But I would like to get some sorting done and get rid of what we don't need anymore. Have 2 garages and 9 rooms to go through before we sell house next spring/summer.

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.

Hi sweet heart. Dave had his cataract surgery today. Every thing went great. He took a very long nap. I did alot of laundry. Mostly from when we went away. Dave had another nap after supper. I have been trying to go through bins and boxes. Can't find bedding from camper we bring home at end of prior year or other things. But just a bit ago I was moving a box of presents for this year and did not know one had a slide split so while I am putting all i have into moving the box i fell on the box, rolled out of the box. I am completely ok just a knee, one elbow and one arm bone a little sore. By tomorrow it will be all good.

Hi sweet heart. Back from Red Jacket. A lot of fun. Dave says he is never going to go to another hotel with Alyssa and I. We stayed up too late. LOL Back for couple hours then off to meet up with Pat, Tom, Jen, Jon, H'elia, Autumn, PC and we had Alyssa already. Alyssa went home with mom because Dave has his cataract surgery in the morning. Sad to say I cannot go in the hospital with him and certainly understand in this time up upheaval with the virus. Safety always first. But he is a bit nervous. Doc said he is the perfect candidate and his eyes have no diseases (not sure if thats the right word but nothing wrong but the cataract)..He napped, I put away everything from the over night and started laundry. He woke, we watched tv and unbelievable everything they wanted to pre-register him. Oy-vay. Hope they keep all that info because sometime he'll have the other eye done. Now it is 1:38 pm. Have to get up at 7:45 am and I have couple more hours to get more done. Going to be hard to wake up. Tomorrow nothing outside of the surgery. Friday not plans except to go off the campground. Supposed to be hot days sat/sun with clouds so in the pool we'll go. Dave not so much. Like you he is not fond of the water. But there were be a lot of our camping family there.

Hi sweet heart. We left sat morn and came back late afternoon yesterday from camp. Ate then Dave went to take nap. I eventually myself fell asleep. Today laundry from the camping. Bills (blah) cleaned bottom of pool and some pool time. It is so boring to do the pool by myself. Dave like you, not big on water and Alyssa not here. 7 of us women will be here at the house tomorrow. bring own lunch. We sit outside with distance a part and have such a great time. After they leave Alyssa, Dave and I head for one night to Red Jacket and their inside water park. water will be cold but not for long and my favorite part is the hot tub. we come back wed and we meet up with jen/jon/alyysa and pc, autumn and H'elia for dinner at Kellys row. it is our 3rd wedding anniversary. thursday dave has his catarac surgery then fri we hope to be off to the campsite next w/e. noting planned for the following week except one day we both go to the doctors together just for the normal physical. and one day i go under general (not long term) anestesia for a cystoscopy. But that does leave us days next week to get into trouble lol. i wish i could talk to you. About so many things. I wish you and dave out on the old mud room deck talking about everything. I wish for a hug and a kiss. I just really miss you. And that won't change.

Hi sweet heart. Its after midnight because I of course fell asleep while Dave and I were watching tv. But today (officially 7/14 went to the 2nd eye appt with Dave and a couple errands. Later in the afternoon met Jen at the end of their road to pick Alyssa up. From there back home so we could all grab a sweatshirt or something warm and went to Hampton Beach. We did dinner there then Alyssa and I shopped. She got 2 tops (for cold weather), a pair of sunglasses and a hat. Then home. She did her thing, Dave took a nap and I did a little laundry and a lot of tv lol. Everyone is asleep but I have a few things to get together for our Mt Washington Cruise. Dave is going to have his cataract on 7/23. My procedure is on 7/29 so we made sure that's enough time after the cataract surgery because I need someone to drive me home. They said no problem. For now sweet heart I have to put my purse back together and go through all the paper work on the coffee table and hoping that I will be able to hit the hay by 4 am. I miss you and I love you.

Hi sweet heart. Saturday we had our games with the guys. Yesterday we took out the boat and headed to where Pat Tom live off of swain lake. Parking lot overflowed so we moved on to Milton. They were at max capacity. The good part is we now know for sure they still let boats out on the water. And the price is really good. So no go for the boating. This week the weather is going to be alot of rain and thunder storms so doubt if this week. Alyssa is coming sometime today but due to weather may get her tomorrow. Tomorrow evening we are all going on the Mt Washington. That is always a good time and we have coverage if it rains. Its a dinner cruise. Pc has vaca from this thurs to the next so we are all planning to do something together. Today is when normally the girls come her for lunch and we have a ton of fun but Dave had his eye appt and goes back today which we didnt know about but its all good. We'll get together next week. Was thinking about going camping for the first time this w/e but supposed to be bad weather so we dont know yet. What I do know though is how much I love you and miss you.

i sweet heart. Thursday Alyssa and I went to Portland and stayed over at one of our favorite hotels. Dave was going but he woke up not feeling well. Sweaty and when he stood felt like he would fall so he stayed home with the furry family. We chilled for awhile after we got there then went to dinner. Then the Christmas Tree Shop. Back at hotel we went into the pool and hot tub. For now due to virus only 5 at a time in the pool/spa room and you have to have a key to get in. Alyssa and I had it for most of the time. She kept going in the hot tub. Not sure if she's even been in the hot tub. Back at room, tv then lights out but yet we didn't stop talking and laughing until 3:30 in the morning. Dropped her off at her house on the way home, unpacked car, did the pool, fell asleep until I think around 8 pm. Dave woke from nap around 9 pm. Oyster stew and I fell asleep again until this morning. Feel good. In awhile I will put on the meatballs to slow cook and make the chicken wings. Poker tonight. Trump was coming to Portsmouth today but he is in FL and there is a tropical storm down the coast so that has been postponed for week or two. Going by the rally in S Dakota many are concerned. So many did not wear mask. But they will have mask and sanitizers for anyone who would like to. So it will be an individual decision. Praying they will practice safety. Tomorrow is supposed to be a great day weather wise so Dave and I will take the boat out for the first time. We don't want to take anyone out with us until we are comfortable with it. Can't wait to tube on it. Next Wednesday we are taking Alyssa on the Mt Washington Dinner Cruise. Then the following week taking her to Red Jacket. Going sometime next week or so with PC and the gang to Canobie Lake. That's going to be interesting regarding being safe. Alyssa already knows mask all day except when we eat. Hand sanitizer before and after every ride. Move away from people coming towards us with no mask. And don't walk through any groups. I miss you and I love you. I doubt you even know how much. I hope you did when you were still here with me. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo PS, it is showing the last post from me on here was the 7th. I have written since then so my guess is it wasn't acceptable. I'm sorry.

Hi sweet heart. Not a lot going on. Been going through boxes and someday I will tackle the bins to downsize. No idea when we'll be moving but house getting too big and stairs getting harder for Dave. Have to head off to the store as soon as my hair dries. I wish you could visit me sometimes, even if in my sleep. But in my sleep I'd need to remember my dreams. Can you pass that on to God? Thursday we are taking Alyssa to a hotel in Portland ME. Can only have 5 total in the pool/hot tub. Guess they have a sign up. I recently asked someone if pools are safe. They said they are because of the chemicals. Potters finally got the go ahead from the state to open bath house and pool. We have not been yet but hope to in 2 weeks. Next sat is our once a month (not all months) get together for poker. Next tues or wed having the girls over for bring your own lunch. So much fun. Next Thursday we are doing the dinner cruise on Mt Washington with Alyssa. It is not going to be possible for us to go to FL in august. The state has blown up to be a major place to go due to the covid. Tif is selling the house here in NH. They are staying in Fl in the house. But they close on another house end of this month. So they have 2 houses and will buy another but one of the two (the one we've been too for many many years) they are selling. But the new one is on a lake so I do love that. I think I will go comb out my hair, get dressed and get off to the store when hair is dry. Oh, Dave took out this massive bust that is around the pool. Then he got out all the rocks and raked like heck. He is outside now putting down screen, mulch and wood to surround the area. Few weeks ago we bought a big all seasons heavy duty plastic box where we will put all pool stuff in when winter comes. I miss you and I love you. So much sweet heart. I hate that we smoked and that it took you from me. Say hi to everyone up there in heaven with you ok? Thank you. mty/ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Stayed about 4 hours then went home but went back few hours later for the fireworks they put on. That was amazing. We got home 11ish and I fed and gave water to the furry family and fell asleep. about one this afternoon Dave woke me, Alyssa had already left and he asked me to help him because the filter on pool not running and he couldn't get the 2 garage doors to go up. I asked him if I could sleep more and got up at 3. but we got everything working. we chilled outside for awhile then went to Texas Roadhouse. they are so good. TV until now (3:58) am. I also did laundry. Now I am beyond exhausted. My sleep schedule is so messed up. Was going to start going to Planet fitness later today but realized that I don't have sneakers. So Walmart first. Everyday I miss you and wish you were here. That may sound bad because I am married again. But Dave says he feels the same way. And he knows if youu were here we'd still be together but he loves you. I was honest before we got married. 2 or maybe 3? times I changed my mind about the wedding. I didn't think it was fair to Dave because I was and I still am in love with you. But he swore he was good with that and that he loved you too. hen when that butterfly kept flying around me then on my finger then my shoulder then the pepsi can and I told Jen about it and she said "Ma, that was dad" I knew that was s sign from you and we got married. I do love him. I have always loved him. But you were my "fit". You were someone I knew would always have my back. Would keep me safe. I know Dave will do that too. But Jef, I miss you so much. Every day. This Thursday we are taking ALyssa to a hotel in S Portland ME and we can bring Maezie with us. We will bring her home Friday. Next Wednesday we are taking her on a dinner cruise on the Mt Washington out of Weirs Beach. We were hoping by august we'd be able to go see Tif and family in FL but it wont be safe. So the spending money we have saved up on our scratch tickets we are going to use to take her places. PC wants to go to Canobie Lake Park. I don't want to do that as there is no way can a park that large can be sanitized enough, And no way do I want to go 10 hours with gloves and mask on in hot weather and all that walking. We'll go again next year. But thinking of Weirs beach one day and maybe Hampton. Maybe a drive in. Maybe Zip Line. PC has vaca the 16th to the 23rh. So hopefully we can do a couple days with the girls. Well sweet heart. Off to Walmart site to order work out shoes. I love you sweet heart and I miss you. MTY/LTT forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

I sweet heart. Yesterday was amazing. First was 5 of the girls group came for lunch with me at our house. We bring our own lunch. Someday when its safe again we will go back to Windjammers for dinners. Then between our two scratch tickets we won $225. Then Wayne came for his normal Wednesday night visit. Great day, horrible night and today. I don't know how to explain it. My eyes were bleary, and sore and watery, I fell asleep and woke over and over again and did not get up until 1:15 today. So I have done nothing, gone nowhere, still in pj's. Achy. I don't have the virus symptoms. More like burned out. Was to meet Ed and Tammie but didn't. Was going to little miss Sophies. They have outside seating and breakfast til 2. So now shooting to do that with Jen and Alyssa tomorrow. As short as this is that's all been doing for 2 days. Saturday we are going to Willie and Megs for a bbq and later fire works. after lunch tomorrow Alyssa will come home with me until sunday. Then she will be back Tuesday or Wednesday. I'm sorry so short and boring but I wanted to write. I wanted to remind you that I love you and I miss you and I wish you were still here with me. Life is good but it isn't as good as when you and I were together. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. mty, ltt forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

raying this works. I will never understand when something still works why do people need to change it? I got on here gosh maybe 3 weeks ago and since then 3 of our friends have come to help me try to figure out how to write to you. It used to be so simple. And if we can figure it out it will be simple again. Just have to learn. Pretty much same ole same ole. Many things opened back up for the US. There are a few states that are being hit hard with more positive cases. The presidential race is getting pretty rough. Mostly from one more than the other. We will know in November. We have gone out a few times for outside seating. Each restaurant had tables apart, mask on their faces, tables cleaned when a party gets up and throw away paper menus. Last Tuesday Pc, Randy and the girls went to Newicks for fathers day for Dave. yummy. I have been in the pool 4=6 times. We have had plenty of hot days but many are really cloudy and that can get cool in the water. Have a hum dinger of next few days. Hit heat yet many day rain, storms and lightening. Did you see mom for her b'day Monday? she would have been 95. My angel. Miss her as much as I miss you, just in different ways. Finally got the boat here to the house. We had no problem getting boat trailer registers but had to have an appointment in Newington for the stickers for the boat. Dave got them yesterday. We need to get black decals to put on the boat that will spell out Donna Mae (for mom) Bob passed away 6 years ago on moms b'day. Seems quick yet not quick. Hardly hear from Charro. Actually I am the one who always calls. She is so wonderful but as sometimes people do they move on. I hope for her a wonderful man to be in her life and make a life with her. She was such a good addition to our family and loved Bob very much. I'm thinking Alyssa has gotten to that age now. As far are calls almost never and doesn't come here as often. But when she does I am in heaven and its so much fun. She will be 14 in August. Can you believe that? In order H'elia (you don't know her, she is PC's niece through Herb and about 2-2 1/2 years ago PC got permanent guardianship of her. And she aside if we would be her grammie and grampa) She is almost 17 now, Autumn will be 16, The twins will be 15 and Alyssa will be 14. 4 grand daughters and one grandson all have b'days, all teen agers without the next 6 months. It is still not to our thinking safe enough to fly but we hope to in july or august. We will wear mask and gloves on plane to and from. I haven't seen them since last april when we took Alyssa to FL. Alyssa and Dave hasn't seen them since last summer but I could not go due to the stone I had. Speaking of that, yesterday was the last test on me but they couldn't not get the wire and camera where they needed to so they will call me. I will go to the doctors office slash operating room. But no operation. A procedure. So they can put me under anesthesia and get the test done. Today I believe will be a pj day because I want to get those small jobs around the house done. Dave wants Chicken and dumplings for dinner. Oh Jef how much torture this has been to not be able to write to you in so long. Pray we won't ever have to go through another change on here. But have you heard me talking to you. I am happy sweet heart but I will never be as happy as when we were together. I miss you, I love you. mty, ltt. forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Henry is driving me crazy yakking. Has food, frest water, heater on. Ugh. Then would type and the letters wouldn't show up. Hope its not one of those days. Actually we are going to put up the big screen room in our yard near the camper. We are also going to Wears beach (I think) later. With mask and social distancing. Remember Barnz cinema in Barrington? they have the parking lot set up with a make shift screen for outdoor movies. have to wait until 11 to make reservations. Cant do Weirs or Outdoor movie next 3 days because next two in the 90's and last day storm. Walking can still be a little hard for Dave and the heat would not work at all. But maybe Alyssa and I can go in our pool. Hopefully tomorrow wayne and dave picking up a freezer to bring here. That's all folks. Except to remind my perfect fit how much I miss him and love him. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Its been couple/few days. Different reasons. One was outside company late. One was I could get on here and go to any site but when I would type no letters would type. finally I just shut it off til the next day. 3 nights ago had to bring Lily to emer vet in Portsmouth (she is our guinea pig) did not have her when you were still here. She has a really ugly kind of big (maybe quarter size) sore. They put her on 3 days pain liquid and 10 days anti biotic. no more pain med but about 6 more days anti biotic. last night when I was holding her and cuddling a felt a good size lump on her back end. about the size of 1/2 tennis ball. so I called Broadview and we got her in at 9:30 this morning. Tomorrow being a holiday the doctor is going to send me estimate of the surgery he wants to do to remove that boo boo and then stitch it up. I really wish we could tell your furry family whats going on. must be so scarey. vet said that he took a long needle to see what the lump is and he thinks its fat. he said we may want to remove that too to make sure there is nothing under as far as the needle to go through. but we can wait if we want. dave wants to do both now because doesn't want her under anesthesia again. I am on the fence. but I called them if on Tuesday when he send me estimate for the boo boo could he let me know how much more for the other surgery. saw earlier Tammie took her teens to Saco movies. So when I am done here I am going to google to see whats playing. the pool is up and the water has just a little bit of warming up. cannot wait to get in there. I will write more later sweetheart, I will remind you that don't you EVER think you are not in my heart and mind every single day because I didn't get to write you. You are still my all. My everything. I miss you and I love you. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. I miss you. I wish I could get a hug. Last night was weird. I went late afternoon food shopping. At the register my sugar dropped fast. I grabbed a candy bar and diet pepsi (diet pepsi not to raise sugar) and when I got to the car I wolfed 1/2 the candy. Was able to help Dave bring the food in, was able to put the food away. Was able to make the brownies, baked mac and cheese and ribs and eat. But felt worse and worse so I layed Down at 5:30 and woke at almost 2 am and went right back to sleep until 6:40 am. finally feel good. Had many sugar drops over the years but none like that. We were all going for ice cream and I am glad Dave took Alyssa. The pool is full and now its just a matter of waiting for the sun to warm it up. Hoping by end of next week. Can't wait. You know me and water. Alyssa finally finished up all her homework she didn't do so now we can actually have more time in the day to have fun. She just has to do the normal assignments of the day. We are heading to Rogers Pizza tonight. Not to eat there. Places are opening up. So far in our neck of the woods things are pretty stable. Many deaths but from long term care homes. So sad. Going to see if I can order a solar pool cover. I will write more later ok baby? God how I miss you and love you. My perfect fit. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Its the fifth year anniversary of your passing. And all I can do is get teary eyed or weepy. How have I even made it this long. The kids, the grandkids, Dave and friends and family. What no one knows though is that when no-one is around like when I am watching tv when I am up late, or driving, or lying down to sleep. I cry. And I don't know what is worse, the crying or the pain that fills my whole chest. Your heart 100 % can feel pain. I want to be with you so much and then the flipside of that is I want our grand babies to graduate, go off to college, find someone like I did with you. Their perfect fit and give me great grand babies. I guess the best way to describe it is I want to be here for them but if God decided its my time I will be good with that as well. I don't really want this post to be about anyone or anything except you and I. I say it all the time, that I miss you and I love you. Sometimes I wonder if there are other people out there that miss their man or woman as much. My heart is always going to be yours. Forever and 69...I will write more tomorrow. I am actually starting to have a little breathing thing going on. Not to worry I am fine, its that feeling in the chest when I miss you so much. Be safe, be good and NEVER please NEVER forget how much I love you. How much I will always love you. mty, ltt forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Yesterday was a sad day. I woke to use the facilities and saw Tabitha jerking. We were taking her to vet but I kept her home. I knew she was not going to be with us much longer and I wanted her to pass peacefully in moms arms. 4 12 hours of holding her and she passed. Then doctors office called. They want Dave tested again. So I cried and I slept and Dave went to WD hospital tent. He said they were really good people. He came home with pizza. I wasn't hungry so ate 1 1/2 pcs. Then I slept again. Later around 11 I was just lying there so we watched some tv and I went back to sleep until almost 4 this morning. Now I am hungry. My eyes hurt from so much crying. I hope if you haven't by now you will find Tabitha and keep her with you or how ever that works. I am sorry sweet heart. I just want a bite or maybe not and go back to sleep. I will try to write tomorrow. Its so sad sweet heart. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. yesterday was mothers day. Tif and the kids called. Went to Jens and she, Jon and alyssa were there and PC Randy and Autumn were there too. I was very spoiled. I got gift card, money, flowers, 2 lobsters and a ton of steamers. PC/Randy paying for all the parts for Daves brakes for his truck for his birthday. So far for the birthday parade for him still 10 cars but I think there may be some more. even if not 10 is pretty good. called and talked with news room this morning to see if wmur could come out. he was really nice. and took a ton of info. said they can never plan something like that until the day of because you just don't know what they will need to cover on any given day. that makes sense. I went home and maybe an hour later fell asleep. woke up a little after 11 and dave was asleep. I went back to bed at 4 am and slept until 6 pm. our baby Tabitha is passing away. I cant stand it anymore. I keep giving her food and snacks but she is no longer eating. she drinks water and uses the kitty box but nothing else. first think in the morning we are taking her to the vet. I am beging her to not leave. to fight. I am begging God to not take her. I tell her all the time I will miss her being a pain and trying to climb on my keyboard all the time. I will miss her kisses and kissing her and her lying on my hip when I am watching tv. so much. I think you and I got her maybe 9 1/2 years ago? I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I need to go to bed and its 3:06 am but want to get her to the vet early. I miss you and Love you so much sweet heart. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Early day to up and run. For a week Dave has been having pain/cramps. They move around. Today was so bad in his legs he could not walk. Brought him to walk in. I could not go in. Only people being seen due to the virus. It was boring but they are doing the best thing this way. Then Dave called and said the nurse was coming outside to get me. So of course that didn't sound good. Brought me back to where he was and doctor came in. She explained things to me and said that he should go by ambulance to hosp. But I took him there. The doctor there was just as nice. Again I couldn't go in so I went home. Later I talked with the doctor on the phone. Every test was good. She said that she knows something is wrong but they just can't figure out what it is. She suggested I call his gastro doctor Monday and get him in for a visit. We came home and he went to lay down. Made supper which wasn't good at all. I had a roast going in the crockpot and had to shut it off between going to barrington and the hospital. so started it up again after dave got home. Then he went back to bed so I got the trash out and set it on the floor to take out and it spilled over. greasy stuff of course. then I went to take out some sanitary wipes that's been in the mailbox for ed. there were in our mailbox. dave was worried they would dry up. when I took them out of the mailbox the mailbox fell off the wall. so how way your day ha ha tee hee hee 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. Its sometimes hard to write because with the virus pandemic we mostly stay home. Today is Tifs b'day. We sent her flowers. Thought better to send flowers instead of money in a card. Money is handled by many people. I went with Dave yesterday to turn in cans. Boy I didn't know how nasty that is when you and he did it. Stink? yeah. Get wet? yeah. yuck. Made $30. today he went for another run and this time he made $48. One more run after we get the truck back. Moms day at Jen/Jons. PC and Randy will be there and they are taking Daves truck to Maine. They bought all the brake parts and someone they know are putting them on for him. went to Market Basket at 6am. Going to do that another couple times. You can only get 2 of each meat. And they had a lot of empty meat shelves this morning. Wasn't able to get chicken though. But we eat hamburger more than any other meat so that is what we need the most of. Meat is at a slack until they can sanitize and clean the meat plants. They will be back just don't know when. So there is my boring day lol. I will write more tomorrow. Can you please say hi to everyone for me and most especially mom. I miss you so much. and I love you. Did I tell you we are planning a drive by b'day parade for Dave. Having the 18th at 6 pm and ten cars so far. its going to be such a surprise for him. Can't take him to dinner so this morning I had him pick out a steak that I can make for his b'day. mty, ltt Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Good morning sweet heart. No idea why I am up so early but here I am. And again news everywhere about the virus. Its sad. And its real. Some things were able to open up this week. Tomorrow is Tifs birthday so we are having flowers delivered. Sunday going to Jen/Jons for mothers day bbq. PC/Randy will be there and taking Daves truck back home and for his b'day, moms day going to put all new brakes on his truck. That's a great gift. Wayne was here last night and of course that was excellent. Plans have started as of yesterday to surprise Dave with a drive by birthday parade. the 18th at 6 pm. so far good responses from people. Was going to take him to Texas Roadhouse for dinner. We won't be doing that. We are going to wait at least a month once restaurants are open again to see where the numbers are. I will definitely take him when it is safe. Today we are doing the "can" run. Remember? You and dave would do that each year? I have never done it. Dave said to wear gloves and something for a top I don't care about. I guess i'll probably wear on of his sweat shirts. we have at least a years worth so Dave said it will be 2-3 loads. Yesterday we went and bought two rows of wood for the house so we'll be able to have fires. No idea when we will be able to camp. For now looks like July 1st if quarantine is lifted. Campground to open for now june 1st but if you live out of state you have to quarantine for 14 days when you get there. and we cant do that. many wont be able to do that. heres hoping. Did I tell you Gina came for a visit? I missed her so much. And that was such a beautiful feeling seeing her. Couldn't hug though, air kisses. lol. So far 4 of us near the end of the month will meet here at the house. going to set up long table or 2 if more come and we're all going to have subs and just visit. with safe distance. can't wait. I miss you and I love you. I have always and always I will. I cannot believe 12 days from now it will be 5 years since my heart was broken and I lost the man that no other meant the same to me nor will any other mean the same to me. you were my "all". I will write more tomorrow. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. My blonde hair blue eye Adonis. Do you remember when I would call you that and you'd laugh? To me you were it all in one pair of nice jeans. Been boring. I went food shopping couple days ago. Went for 6 am. Left Dave at home. He wasn't feeling well. Cant get the truck reregisters as it needs a ton of money. He got his stimulus and now hoping I will get one as well then we can get it done. In the meantime going to help him get wood for the back of our yard for the fire pit and we are also going to turn in who knows how many cans. A years worth or more I think. Things will be opening up this month. They just opened up something yesterday then more the 11th then the 18th. It looks like the campground may be able to open up June 1st. If they drop the quarantine part we can go. Other wise July or later. Talked with the twins and Tif tonight. They are so much fun. Jen wants us over sunday for mothers day. BBQ I think. That will be fun then we'll take Alyssa home for a week. Guess I should start making plans. Hope that week will have great weather so we can do outside stuff. She loves to drive the golf cart. We have ladder ball, basketball, corn hole. BIkes. A lot of things to do outside. Not so much inside. I am really tired. Going to make a quicke snack, take my sugar and go to bed. I miss you and I love you, so very much. And forever will. mty, ltt Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. 2 1/2 days ago my computer went down. On the first day (1/2 day) I might have written to you but not yesterday or today. What a nightmare. Called geek squad and that and one other thing are cancelled. store is not open either but they can do curb pick ups. Finally Ed was able to do it over the phone. Took 1/2 hour or so and wala thank you Ed. I told him the most important thing is I can't write you and I keep every months budget each on its own excel sheet. Can't do either. I used to be able to write you from my laptop but the cord to keep laptop charged disappeared last year sometime. Any way how I miss you and love you. This month will be 5 years since you passed. Today, may 1st, if Dave and I had not divorced (hard as that was at first it actually turned out being a blessing as I had 23 years with you) if we were still married from the first time today would be our 38th wedding anniversary. Governor Sununu came out with a bit of a plan to start letting some things open up. That's one thing I do like about him. He takes his time, he listens to other government and he tried to keep us all safe and also give some slack for the protesters who want to go back to work. so on the 4th Campgrounds in NH can open but only NH people can camp there. Saves from people coming from out of state. 5/4 Campgrounds can open in NH but only those who live in NH can camp there. Saves us from having people from other states coming in. 5/11 Golf clubs open (no club house, no 19th hole) Barber shops and hair salons open by appointment only. staff and customers have to wear mask. Don't know how that will work with beard trimmings like Dave gets. I can shave his head but no way will I do the beard. I would be scared. You know how he loves his beard. Retail stores that not have been able to be open can open now but only 50 % capacity. Not sure if all of them or some of them. 5/18 Restaurants can open up with outside seating only. Most have been open but only for delivery or pick up. There are so many different government, scientist, etc that have so many different ways of looking at this. Some are buckling to the protestors. Some are copying other state and some are slower on the draw. Many are saying its a bad decision. I pray for our country. Dave got his stimulus check. Hoping mine is soon. My car to get put on the road (tires, brakes, register and inspect) was $936. Dave so far we have to have #1,300 plus cost of registration and inspection. I am hungry. It is 12:28 am. So going to try to find something kind of light. Toast or frosted flakes. I miss you baby and I love you very much. I will write more tomorrow now that I can. mty, ltt.

Hi sweet heart. I need your hug. Every day I miss you but some days are harder. Recently I asked Noreen if its normal to still have this kind of missing and loving and sometimes pain. She and Del were married many years and he has been gone longer than you have. She said its very normal and its very ok. The virus seems to be getting a little better in some states so they are starting to make options for people to get out. I pray that's ok because their is no cure yet. They are fighting day and night to find a cure. Its just crazy out there. It will be good when we can put up the pool in the back yard and camp out there too. We brought our other camper home. Going to use that when Alyssa is here. Right now no camping in ME until may 15th ? or 20th but we won't be going I don't think. way too many chances of getting ill. I miss Alyssa already. this coming w/e sat or sunday its supposed to be nice so we are going to invite pat tom angela tweesa and Big atumn over for a fire. I will write more sweet heart. I miss you and I love you. Very much. mty, ltt. Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Feeling down today. Turn on tv and its sad news. Log into AOL and its sad news. All virus. On one hand some states are opening up a little bit. And maybe it will be ok but I just don't know how until they find a cure. Its also a blah weather day. That doesn't help. Dave went up to bed. Not feeling well. We are going to Joannes later. She has more mask for me to give out. I have 3 ziplocks in the mailbox. 3 different people. one bag is 6 mask and the other 2 or 4 each. these women out there making mask 7 days a week are hero's in my book. Joanne (one of them) is over 900 so far. I could make them (maybe) if I had a sewing machine. On my screen 1/2 covering what I am writing is two boxes. I have been trying to X them out but no luck. So I will stop for now. I miss you and I love you. Very much. mty, ltt Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo

Hi sweet heart. Yesterday Tweesa came for a visit. We sat in the driveway with at least 6 feet apart. For about an hour. The weather was nice. Later at night Dave lit a fire. near the camper that he brought home from potters. we did marshmallows and tried a recipe I found where you put chocolate pieces, strawberries and marshmallows in the waffle cone. wrap with aluminum foil. They burned so we left them in fire less time and wrapped in 3 layers of aluminum foil and still burned. I will stick with the banana sundaes in the fire. those are always good. It was a fun night. Dave and Alyssa played ball today while I rested. I wish I have known so I could have taken pictures. you know me. love to take pics. Alyssa and I made peanut butter frosting over angel food cake. we each had a piece. I packed up 3 pieces for her to take home and share with mom and dad and we have one more piece here which pretty sure that will be gone (By me lol) before bedtime. It is 11:17 pm. I have not been up the late in last couple months. this virus is still raging but some states are going to start letting businesses open up with regulations. we shall see. I will write more tomorrow sweet heart. I miss you and I love you. So much. mty, ltt Forever and 69...Your "Reggie" xoxo
