MIA , sorry.

For those who don't know, on March 10th, my son David, was been diagnosed as having terminal cancer. At the time I was told that he does not have long to live, perhaps only about 6 months. He is 19.

Sisters, Winters and Post - Holiday Malaise

Christmas Day, my sister flew into O'hare from Alaska, and she and I spend a few days with my friend, and shopped. What fun!
Then, we went to southern Illinois, where I grew up, and my other sister came from Seattle and we all hung out, visiting extended family and getting reacquainted.
The last time we three had been together was 12 years ago, and the time before that was almost 20 years ago!

We had fun, and have decided NEVER to go very long without seeing each other again!

While I was in southern Illinois, I stayed in a B & B- like hotel in the tiny town of Biggsville. It was called the Hotel Lynn, and the local folks take care of it and decorate it. If you are ever down that way and need accommodations on the cheap, then check out Hotel Lynn!

While there, I drove across the river to Burlington Iowa, to find a grocery store. I also found this gas station, called the Kum & Go.


I know.

Today's freebie has nothing to do with that. Instead, just comment, and I will choose one person at random to win this pinwheel magnet.
Post today and tomorrow, and I will pick on Monday.

Have a great weekend!
