December 2017. Kathy, Marianne and Larry stopped by for coffee and cinnamon buns on the 6th. Shirl's kids came for the 2nd weekend of the month. We had three parties. One at Kathy and Jerry's on Friday, one at Kerri's on Saturday with the Jordan kids stopping by, and another one at Kerri's on Sunday with all of the cousins from Shirl's side of the family. Made a great family discovery through Ancestry.com/DNA. My cousin Franny Fedor showed up as my first cousin which, of course, she is. She's the daughter of my Uncle Raymond (my Mom's brother and my favorite Uncle) and Aunt Nancy. We haven't seen each other for at least 50 years. This Ancestry stuff is amazing.
November 2017. Church services in the park started on November 3rd. We spent Thanksgiving day at home alone. Shirl was very sick with something that looked a lot like flu but is now called a viral infection. .
