This is Blue Bell Oct 2009, she was home from rehab after a broken hip. I had old family photos so she could tell me there names. She looked and named everyone. I ask her somethings about the old days (They were hard times .) The wars and depression we had to help each other. I don't like to remember them.

That's a lovely story. Please wish her a speedy recovery and a happy birthday and lots more to come.

We complain about today and our problems but they're nothing compared to the war and hard times our parents and grandparent had. We should count our blessings every day.
