Note to Shari by Janell Rose

Shari, you suggested I put some of those antiques on EBay. You don't know how hard that was for me trying to figure all that mess out. I finally got set up and actually doing pretty well. In fact - I called the "cheap home repairman" that lives on the street behind us and ask him to put us on his schedule for March. Usually in March we are back to decent weather most of the time. Want him to come replace our Living, Dining and Kitchen Ceiling. Not tear it out - cover it over, which will mean replacing all the trim around the walls. We live in this area of Irving that the "house moves" with the weather. Jr. replaced two 4 x 8 sheets of sheetrock back about 20 years ago (we have lived here almost 40 years) and they have again been cracked all the way across dining room - for past 5 years - they are "behind Jr's chair" so he does not see them. Me, I see them everytime I look at Jr. from my chair. So - my EBay is going to repair the ceiling. Went to Home Depot today to start pricing materials - see how much EBay I need to do. Ha. We have a neighbor that put up the "beadboard ceiling" and it is really pretty - so that is what we are going to do. This house is going to be really a mess in the Spring for probably a couple months - but it will be a different kind of mess than we had in the Fall.

I decided to stay off this site after reading Mango - but had to put my two cents in regardless how boring.

Where is everyone - maybe out in the yard - we have had alternating days in the 70's and then back to the teens. No snow - just cold then back warm again. Eileen has been very ill with a virus this past week - thought first it was the flu - she has been in and out of bed for 3 - 4 days. Went to the Dr. Tuesday and he said a virus going around. I hope the rest of family does not get. Carolyn came by Tuesday and spent the night - she was returning from Amarillo area - she had gone to Caprock Canyon on a Job interview with Texas State Park System. Just got home Tuesday afternoon and called and said she would be back next Tuesday because she got another call for Palo Duro Canyon and she has to prepare a 20 minute oral presentation. She has applied at 4 locations - long - long drives. I hope she gets something soon. In the meantime she is still working at "Washington on the Brazos" park but that is temporary.

OK - time for someone else to get on this site and let us know you are OK. We miss seeing everyone - at least we could hear from you. And how wonderful to see Eric's note. Love to All Jr. and Janell
