Mary Jane.....I see your post questioning whether any of us have had dreams of not being able to reach our spouses.  I actually started have those dreams about 2 months BEFORE Ken passed away.  That's how I knew what Heaven's plans were.  The doctors were saying one thing but my dreams were saying something else and as much as I wanted to believe the doctors, I knew better.  One of those dreams was similar to the one Chuck mentioned.  I was at a street fair type of place and could see Ken at a table across the street but by the time I crossed, he was already gone.  Then I saw him at a table under a tent and again, he was gone when I got there.  There were several other dreams of this nature.  Some of them included him leaving his wallet and cell phone at home and just leaving.  Those dreams were upsetting because I knew what was coming.  Now dreaming about him is the only time I feel normal although it doesn't happen as much as in the beginning.

Happy new year everyone. I just moped around the house, watched a surprisingly REALLY good movie on FREE HBO...most of the movies I started to watch  sucked big time..but I highly recommend The Mountain Between Us..riveting...

went to bed at midnight, couldn,t sleep cuz all the yahoos in Oklahoma set off fireworks every New Year’s ended up sleeping until a friend messaged me at 9:40 am...

today I am going to try to pack the personal,stuff like things on the refrigerator, like Bobs poems, and sketches...and printed “sayings” one of which has been up there for Years..and is so prophetic :

FEAR EATS THE SOUL....and it really really does. What I would REALLY like to do, is get roaring drunk...but I made an iron clad promise to God that I can never break,,, I couldn,t even if I was assured there would be no accidents, phoning friends, or hangover. 

I wish you all a better year...last year kinda really sucked...2017 was least it seemed that way.

QUESTION: has anyone here seen the musical The Book of Mormon?  Melinda got us tickets to see it..she saw it about a year ago,  said it was so funny her stomach hurt for days from laughing. But my neighbor saw it and DIDN,t like it...but she had never heard or seen SOUTHPARK and it was written by their creators. Kind of R rated...I loved Southpark until it got too violent. Ok bye

Wishing you the same Marsha, we spent the evening at home watching the CNN coverage on TV of the NYC festivities, then one hour later, watched the Dallas Celebration of the New Year.  We watched Twilight Zone marathon off and on all day and after midnight central time for about an hour and then retired,,,

Good to hear from everyone and wishing everyone a healthy year full of peace, hope and love for all.

Hugs to all
