I had a lunch date with my girlfriends from high school Sunday afternoon. I dropped in to see my dad and sister Kelli at their church before my appointment. It's always so good to see Dad.
My sister Kelli and her husband Ralph attend the same church so it was wonderful to see them as well. They were having a potluck after the service, so I watched them eat.
Hi had a wonderful time after that visiting with some of my high school friends. We never seem to have enough time to catch up, but it was so fun.
On my way home from visiting my friends I stopped in to visit Dad and Mom at their home. This is Dad in his shop. He built it himself with help from his brother Lester. It's warm and cozy in there. He has his Bible and radio, which he enjoys while being in here. Behind him are framed photos of his brothers and himself during their service to our country.
All seven brothers served in the military. Two of them Lawrence and Ellis, during WWII.
In his window sill he has this cute carved piece of wood that says Leonard and Shirley. I love it that my dad has these kinds of things in his shop. I need to take more photos of the special things he has in here like this.
This is one of my dad's favorite photos of his mother reading her Bible. She did read her Bible every day and loved the Lord so much. It's a favorite photo of mine as well. I had such a good time visiting my friends and family. My mother was not well enough for photos, but I enjoyed visiting her too. I love you Dad and Mom. Kathi
