How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) for the full details. Have a nice day Thanks God bless.
Morton - I hope you had a great and blessed birthday! I forgot to go on line and send in time! Sorry, but I wanted to let you know I was thinking of you.
We have had a beautiful fall here. I have enjoyed the color and crisp weather. We spent Thanksgiving with all the family here and made great memories with Lainey and Claire. (Grand daughters) I just took down all of the Fall decor - and began the Christmas decorating yesterday. I will hit it again this morning. We will go to Houston for Christmas Eve and Christmas day to watch the girls open their gifts. The day after we will return home and all of the kids are coming up to spend a few days here together.
I hope all is well with you and your family. Enjoy the magic of the Christmas season!
Hey Morty, Hope you are coming to Sue Harris' 60th birthday party. I am going to try to make it. I have a Wedding and a Baby Shower that day so I need some chilling time. Hope to see you there!!!!! I bet your house looks great and keep up the remodeling. Ha!!!
Morton - How are you doing? I know we traded an email about a year ago while I was in the midst of planning my daughters' wedding in May and my 2nd son was getting married in October. I now have all three of my children happily married which is a good feeling to be done with that!
I had my two grand daughters, Lainey, 3 and Claire 20 months, last week for about 5 days. Mom (Kelly) was able to go on a girl trip to Destin and Dad (Bryan, my oldest son) was working in Houston. Bob and I had so much fun having them all to ourselves. There is nothing like being a grand parent.
I walk early every morning thru the hills for a little over an hour. I love to be outside. I went to the Club every morning for exercise and got sick of being inside. I usually go straight to the front or back yard and do some work which I also enjoy. So I just came in awhile ago and sat down at the computer to send out a few emails I have put off for too long.
We are going to leave on Tuesday for a 5 day land trip and 7 day cruise in Alaska. We are not cruise people but we have heard positive things about this one and I know Alaska must be beautiful. It will be nice to get out of the triple digit weather we are having here this summer. We were able to escape to the mountains in Colorado for a break a couple of weeks ago. We saw Lyle Lovett and Band at Red Rocks outside of Denver. That was our second time to take in a concert at Red Rocks - what a beautiful setting for a concert. We saw James Taylor there last year so it seemed like a good excuse for a cool mountain trip again.
I see that you live around the lake area. That must be really nice. You must enjoy being outside too. Do you like to work in your yard?
I am happy to reconnect with some of my child hood friends from Muskogee. I have so many good memories of growing up there. Mike Simpson has done a great job with the sight.
I am really looking forward to some Fall weather this year. Austin has had to hottest and dryest summer on record. Me too! But I hear that I have a while to wait. But the mornings are usually quite pleasant here.
We moved to Austin about 9 years ago from Houston. We are both happy to be here. Go to Houston pretty often to see the kids and grand children and they also like to come to Austin. It is under a 3 hour drive from door to door.
What are you doing with yourself this summer? I cannot believe it is already into August. It seems everytime I turn around it is almost Christmas time again. Do you ever come to the Austin area? We have a guest room waiting for you all anytime. I would love to see you and spend some time together.
Well, guess I need to get out of here and run some errands. Take care and I look forward to hearing from you. Love, Melody
Morton, I may endanger my good standing with the Hermit and Recluse Society, were I to start attending social activities, but for you, I might just take that chance.
One of the memories I have of us (among so many) was when we were commuting to Northeastern State together and I tended to drive very fast and we would probably pass dozens of cars on that two-lane highway every day.
We would start out at the back of the pack leaving Muskogee and end up leading the procession into Tahlequah.
I always wondered what you thought about the way I drove because you never said a word about it.
I remember we would be passing maybe four or five cars at a time, and a car would be bearing down on us from the opposite direction, and I would look over at you and say "Don't worry, Morton, we're going to make it." And you never batted an eye. You sat there just as cool and calm as could be, and watched our potential doom approaching at a high rate of speed.
But of course, I was a very good judge of distance and speed (if I do say so myself) and we did make it back to the safety of our own lane every time.
I always wondered if you thought I was crazy or should be driving for NASCAR, or should be locked up and banned from driving forever.
Maybe I'll make the next get together. That's not a promise but I "will" consult the H&R Society.
I was diagnosed with a 100 percent service-connected PTSD disability several years ago, which is one reason I pretty much keep to myself, (and one reason you guys had such a hard time getting me to go places with you) and was one reason I drove so aggressively back when we were commuting.
I'm doing a lot better now. I don't feel the need for speed anymore, and if I get behind a slowpoke I just patiently wait until he gets out of the way.
That's quite a change, don't you think.
It's good to hear from you Morton, and I'm glad you are doing so good. I haven't been fishing in a long time, but I had a good teacher, and I can still untangle a fishing line with the best of them.
Last night I looked at some of our classmates who have died too early, and I'm feeling kind of melancholy right now.
Hey Morty!! How ya been doing. I see you are still living up there on Park Hill. I bet it still looks great up there. Didn't get to go to the luncheon but maybe I will see you at the next great event. Suzanne
