May in West Central Iowa

003 - Copy

(Jan) The old fashioned iris are blooming profusely here in west central Iowa as Chuck and I spend time here at the farm. We’ve been sorting through boxes and boxes and boxes of photos. 001What fun it has been to walk down memory lane; our HS, college and Army years, business and farm pictures but most fun are the photos of our families & friends and our son’s baby pictures, birthdays, school years, weddings and their children-our grandchildren. Our plan is to scan many of them to a digital format.005

We’ve gotten to see my mom several times and help attend to her needs.  She will have out patient cataract surgery next Wednesday and then return to Swan House where she is very content. It’s good to see her again and be with her.

Going out to eat with cousin Jerome and wife Dolores, attending a friend’s daughter’s HS Graduation party and spending a day with friends Ron & Edna and Pam & Butch at Prairie Rose have been other high lights.

Beautiful irises! They were my mother's favorite flower, and are mine too (second only to yellow roses). Glad you're having such good family memories. We'll keep your mom in our prayers for successful surgery.

I love the Irises. We have seen a lot here in New Endland. Gald you are getting some time with your mom. Can't wait to see your family CD's

Enjoyed the visit with you two at Yan. It was great to just take time and smell the roses, or irises! Remember Dolores in our prayers. You guys have safe travels. Jerome and Dolores
