Tom, sure thing about becoming vice president of my club. Let me make some trial runs first so I can test the waters. Will keep you posted. Bail money? Will wait for that and let you know. What was your phone number again, for my one phone call?

Tom, thank you for your posting. I'm sure it is an important message and can be helpful, as all of our input is, good and bad. I,myself, have no one I can rely on. No friends,LouAnn's family and friends disappeared,just me. And I suck at being alone with nobody.I do what I need to,maintain the house,yard,bills,ect..The problem most of us have is...whats the pupose? Whats the point? I never had the chance to say goodbye as she died suddenly. She also knew that I wouldnt want to live without her. Thats what I have to live with.I have no useful meaning anymore.I wish everyone success if they have a friend or two or family they can turn too. Or even projects and activities that they can have or get into. Hugs to all.Hugs are good.

Randolph,It sounds like a smile!I sure hope so.We all need one every once in a while!Good for you!

Randolph, If you go to sniff this woman you had better take a change of clothes because you might need them when they arrest you for getting fresh with her. I think I would just stand back and order a hamburger from her. It will be good for you to have your grandson with you even for just a while. It will take the empty out of the house. Believe me, I know that it is not the same as LouAnn being there but at least there is another person in the house. I hope you are doing well.

I posted a message a little while back about doing crazy, stupid and clumsy things because the brain never stops. Well, heres another "brainstorm". My grandson works at a nearby fast food place and is staying with me for a while 'cause its closer for him.
He told me, hey grampa,theres a woman who works here that smells just like grandma. I want to go and smell her. Stupid I know. My one daughter said, Dad,you are not going there and smell her. Can you imagine the call to police "hey,theres a man down here sniffing women". Oh well,crazy I know. I do have LouAnn's perfume bottle and I do smell it once in a while. I have not forgotten one thing about her and never will.Just wanted to share another "kodak" moment with you all. Hugs for all. Hugs are good.

This is a response to Linda Lenell. I see how difficult flying is for you. Maybe you know another pilot or family of a pilot who gets to fly at a reduced rate and maybe they would fly with you when your grandson is born so you won't have to go alone? I have had many situations where I was just so sad I didn't want to be alone and I would avoid doing things that reminded me of my husband. But if one friend was just standing there with me while I cried, and gave me a hug, it made all the difference. I wish I could fly with you -- I would! I have two grandchildren and they are such a joy. Soon the sadness will ease when you get to spend time with that new baby. I hope this for you. God bless and don't be afraid to tell others when you are sad. You may be surprised to find how well they listen or how compassionate people can be. Take care and good luck!
