Hi darlings, just to say Thank You for the delightful pictures
received today. They are as
always delightful. Every Sunday morning I get out the albums, I now have 4 and look at all the
pictures from the day Nellie was born, so they are all printed on my mind and I relive them when I can't sleep and I
enter any new ones. John, I now
have double vision, so I hope you can read this Soon it will be sans hair sans eyes, already sans teeth but it
seems God has no room for me
yet so I soldier on! Peaggy only bothers how I look not how I feel!
She's not very happy at the
moment, she's got 2 empty beds & says she's losing money. The Social Services say they can't afford to pay for
Residential Homes now, so they
are sending fewer old people in There's a great outcry now that there's no places for mentally ill people so many
places have been closed
down.. but the times we live in are sending more people over the edge!! more stress & suicides than ever, so I'd
better keep my feet on the
ground!! Even that's a problem at times. Where is it all going to end? I hope I've departed this life before too long.
I feel such a burden to my
family, you've all got enough to worry about I'm all for euthanasia and when I look round I think you wouldn't
let an animal suffer, like some
poor things do. I at least I'm thankful that I don't suffer anything dire.
Auntie Win was
91 on Monday &
Mu says she's just as malicious as ever & hasn't a good word
for anyone. Poor old Win,
really alone, I can't help feeling sorry for her. I've got so much, even Mu's only got Fred. Mandy's boys are grown up
now & don't visit so
much. Tess seems happier & she's had a scan & she's carrying a
BOY so they are both
thrilled. I don't know if she's told her Mum yet so I shan't say anything to her tomorrow unless she mentions it
first I wish I could win
the lottery & free you both, but it's highly unlikely I don't do them anyway!! Love to know all is well with
you it makes me happy
to hear you so soon be Friday again & look forward to seeing Jude tomorrow. Lots of love to all Mum &
Rose, Nellie Daniel Boris
- ? I have Auntie Win's birth date from Cousin Terry as April 22, 1906. April 22 fell on Tuesday in 1997, so one of us is wrong here, I don't know which.
