I know I do not post hardly anymore. I am here and still dealing with my
kidney issues. I have recently given up on my family tree for the moment
and have been working on my hubby's. His is much easier to trace than mine
but NJ is notorious for being difficult. Went to the store to buy some of
the items I will be needing to make a Thanksgiving dinner at our new house.
All I need now is a dining room table. LOL
Well see you all around. Hi Carl!!!!! : )

Subject: [NJ-MEMORIES] Hi again
It sure is great hearing from all the old timers. We all have our health
problems and me too that I almost died in '97.
To catch you all up for almost 5 years. It doesn't seem that long.
Hawk and I got married in July of '95. A hot day at the lake. We had the
ceremony at the state park with the lake in the back ground. My son came in
from PA. To be my best man. Hawk's brother walked her down the lawn to an
archway. The garden club as a wedding gift to us provided the floral
decorations and my boss at the nursery brought a truckload of shrubs as
accents. All was a surprise.
We went to Gettysburg for two days and one day at Antietum, Hawk's a Civil
War buff. I'm getting into it too now.
Then we went to good old New Jersey,stopped and saw the kids in Phila.,
visited Mom in her assisted care home in Hillsborough. Of course the visit
wouldn't be complete without going down the shore. Hawk, being a Hoosier was
never at the Jersey shore. She had a great time romping tin the sand and
running through the surf. Then on the way home we drove through the Pine
You're probably wondering about Hawk, my wife.
She is a high school teacher and a wildlife biologist. We share allot of the
same feelings about the natural world. Her given name is Christi. She is
part Chickasaw, and spent some time with the Lakota Sioux where they gave
her the name of "Red Hawk Women" (she can pronounce it in Lakota, I won't
even attempt to spell it ) so she likes to go by the name "Hawk".
We started out living at the lake although she had a house in Crandall, IN
only 20 miles from Louisville where she teaches. Her daily commute from the
lake (100 miles one way) proved to be too much for her. So she moved back to
Crandall and I stayed at the lake.
That arrangement did not last long. I got a job in a very well respected
highend nursery in New Albany, IN. About a year there, I sustained a hernia.
The VA hospital in Louisville did the surgery.
I'll continue in the next time I get on Memories. This is probably enough
for one session.
