We found our that one of our breakfast friends passed away during the night. We used to go to breakfast after Mass every Sunday. He was such a fun person and a good worker for our Church. We couples are all about the same age and he was such a nice man. It's wonderful, I think, when you can say that a man is fun in his late 70's. So many oldsters get cranky and out of sorts as they age. He pretty much stayed the same...always a joke and keeping our conversations light and interesting. There will be a hole in our hearts and at the breakfast table.
It's a gloomy day today. No work outside today. That's good, because I am tired from all I did yesterday.
The porch is changed from summer to fall. It is supposed to warm up a bit, so we will be sitting out once again. Our little neighbor girl likes to visit and play with a doll that I have. She has a vivid imagination and feeds him, scolds him, puts him down on the bench for a nap. I went through my boxes of belongings, the day I organized the basement storage area, and found a box of dolls. I called her over and gave them to her...keeping the boy doll here for her to play with. She hasn't seen the porch decorated for fall and Halloween yet. I will miss seeing her when winter comes. I always love it when I hear....Hi neighbor! and then See you later alligator!
