Ohio Ma and Texas Paula
Cars of Art:
Another 1930's classic....
Now for tonight:
I don’t know how I met MA (Whatsnewatmyhouse). Most likely it was from one of your blogs. But it has been a great friendship.
Sherry and I have been married a long time. (Comparatively speaking) and I always enjoy learning from folks who have lost their mates. I know for sure that MA and Paula (Paulinescountrytales) lost their mates too young.
Sherry and I KNOW that one day that will be one of us. I like to read how the one left, copes. MA seems to be happy and enjoy her large family. She worked and raised a large family for years after the loss of her hubby. She is to be admired, and we do. Every once in a while she posts family pics, I like that.
MA’s blog is a positive one. We have watched her downsize. See some ‘disappointments’ in buyers and contracts while selling her home. Her move into a smaller home has been a challenge we all could see. Down-sizing definitely it a tough job.
But for one 'never down' (in her blog) she has adjusted to the smaller place. Her blog still produces POSITIVE, YOU CAN MAKE IT, entries. It is always a smile to read an entry and look for the GEM that is always hidden in the ‘good stuff’.
Paula? What can one say about the Cowgirl? I was drawn to her blog because her love for animals. Her love for Mel, the husband she lost much too young, is undeniable. Her daughters keep up with her and love her to pieces. Unlike MA, Paula found John. He was a rancher and Paula always wanted to be a cowgirl.
Paula inspired one of my books, “Toby’s Tales.” She is a great poet and allowed me to use her poems in the book. What a privilege that was. We were fortunate to meet her and John in person. The girl drives a pick-up and She is as delightful in person, as with her tales. Driving thru Texas I am drawn to look at gates to ranches and their designs, just because of Paula’s country tales.
Paula is another AWOL blogger, she has had some tough days, but my Sherry keeps me up on her FB entries.
There are people who make lasting impressions. MA and Pauline are two…..
