1929 Ford School bus.
We attended a funeral today for OUR brother in law Elmer. I sorta thought he had outlived so many of his peers at 91 the attendance may be small. But the church was full. Elmer had touched many people in his life. He was also steady, he had attended the same church since 1946.
Oh yes, I must say to you guys who read regularly but do not comment, thanks. Today several people, some I did not know said that they enjoyed the Shipslog.
After the funeral Sherry checked her phones and we had received some bad news. My dear friend Ed, was in the hospital. We drove over to Gastonia to see him for about 5 minutes. He was recovering from surgery related to ‘scar tissue’ from cancer surgery 10 years ago, but this was not cancer, Thank the Good Lord.
Many friends and family asked the same question, “Are you here for good?” Our answer is “No, but we are not sure when we will head back.”
Oh the weather was clear but windy today for the burial that was a pleasant surprise.
Looking forward to getting back to some regular type schedule, well for a few weeks anyway.
