(Missing Kenneth, the daddy rabbit, Kenny, Robert and Lil.) What a Family!
Yesterday Shirl called and said come and see this beautiful flower. Glenda, from Okee, my speaking rep for the Conrad family, had sent a beautiful plant in memory of Sonny. We have never had a plant with a plaited trunk, this is pretty. Thanks Glenda and all the Conrads.

I have mentioned this family many times, other than my family and kin we feel closer to them. They are real Missouri folks. A farm family of loving, caring and sharing people.
I am sure I will get off the subject of Sonny in a while, but for now he is fresh on my mind. We shared a trip to Pike’s Peak. We went up into the St. Louis Arch, stood at Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane’s graves together. Went into the last house that Pa Ingals built, and climbed to the top of the little rise where the little house on the prairie sat. We stood under the cotton woods that Pa had planted.
We walked down into the Badlands. We got lost together in Wall Drug . We stopped to shed a tear at the site of the Oklahoma City Bombing. We shared our thoughts of the Alamo (Where Sonny argued with the museum personnel about why we couldn’t take a picture inside. LOL) Then we went to the River walk there in San Antonio. We saw the Petrified Forest and some big meteor crater close by there. Ahh, and Yosemite together. Oh yes, we went to the Devil’s tower together, Sonny refused to try to climb it. Of all the places we shared, probably the Grand Canyon was the most impressive. He and Colette loved it.
Yes, we went and enjoyed some great parts of this great country. Oh, yes, we saw Niagara Falls and on to Nova Scotia and the Bay of Fundy. There was the Mayflower at Plymouth and the Great Cape Cod Bay.
Enough, thanks for sharing my ramblings,
There's this blonde out for a walk. She comes to a river and sees another blonde on the opposite bank 'Yoo-hoo!' she shouts, 'How can I get to the other side?'
The second blonde looks up the river then down the river and shouts back, 'You ARE on the other side.'
