Hi Rhonda!

Remember me? I've been so bad about blog reading lately...not because I don't want to read, but because of my crazy life recently. Lots of company, which has been wonderful and then all the medical tests, "hoopla", etc. I'm back now though...finally.

You've been a busy, busy girl. I've really enjoyed reading all your posts I've missed and seeing all your beautiful photos.

Hugs!
Kat

Hey Scooter!!! Bill was in the Air Force but we didn't retire in it...after him being sent to Korea for a yr and the Viet Nam war going on I knew I could live that kind of life...so after his term was up we headed back home! We were stationed in Kansas and Louisiana...but we both had relatives that made a career of the Air Force...

Picket said...

oops..that should read I couldn't live that kind of life! LOL I was a basket case the whole yr he was in Korea..his group was sent there as a backup for Viet Nam..I stand in awe of all the men and women who have spouses in the war zones..only God knows the cries they call out in the wee hours of the morning behind closed doors and then they get up and face the world and take care of things at home wearing such a shield of bravery..God bless our military families.

Nance said...
