Hey everyone,

Just a quick note to say I made it back home safely. Thank you all for your well wishes, prayers, thoughts . . .etc. for the trip to California. We took care of dad's request to be put in the cemetery by his mother and father and met up with several relitives I hadn't seen in years.

There were about twenty of us all together, so aside from taking care of my father, we cleaned up the area around where all of the other relitives are buried.

All in all it was a good trip.


I took a look at the comments you left for the story and had a great time laughing and wondering how on earth I'm going to create a story with all of them. When I asked you to be random, you certainly did not dissapoint!

I'll be working on getting something put together and will post it asap.


I'll be by to catch-up with your sites during the next couple of days.

Thanks also, for the birthday wishes.

Good luck with that story. You've definitely got your work cut out for you.

Ron said...

Welcome back, Jeff!

You were missed by many.

I can't WAIT to see what you come up with for a story....

Oy vey!?!?

Oh...and Happy Birthday, buddy!

That's a tough job to do. Hope you and your wonderful family have nothing but wonderful memories.
I really like your "Psycho Mom."
I think we'd have a lot in common...
I haven't been around lately and hope to make it up.

I am glad that you are back safe. If I understand it correctly, you traveled because you lost your Father? I am so sorry.
