October greetings to all of you dear ones! Our trees are still green, but the breeze is like fall. Summer was short and cool (for us). We missed the annual Spring family visit (aka cousin's camp). Pammy made our summer by coming and staying for a couple of weeks. I stayed home mainly this summer. I walk nearly every day, but my left leg is still gimpy, though a little less gimpy every day.
Yesterday, Sue Upton (Charlene's sister) took me and Charlene and their mom Carol to Calevaras County Big Trees State Park about a 2 hour drive each way. We saw lots of scenery, mostly oak trees and conifers. (Karen is typing for me and she wants to tell you that I was car sick or had a 24 hour flu bug and had to watch the road the whole time both ways and was pretty miserable. So I will have to go back to see the BIGGEST TREES next time. Karen says that's ok because my Doctor tells me he thinks I could likely live another TEN YEARS. Lots of time to do road trips.)
Austin's and my grave marker is in and looks good--Sierra granite with an image of the St. George Temple. Not everyone gets to read his grave marker ahead of time :).
It is fun to see and read your blogs. Keep writing, please.
Love, Grandma Mimi
