The photo is my son and myself. Now days you can get a photo made to look old like this one. This photo was taken when this was the new look.

Harry S Truman was president when I was born and world war II had ended. I grew up in a time when lunch was put in a brown paper bag and a sandwich was wrapped with wax paper. There was no such thing as pantyhose, we wore stockings that attached to the rubbery clippy things that attached to the girdle. Convenience stores were not common and when we took a trip we packed a picnic basket because many places did not have fast food. Highways had places to pull over and stop, some with picnic tables.

I have to chuckle at Lena. I do wonder how she will explain it to the doctor. ;-) I hope she does heal, in spite of her own interference. But I have been stupid stubborn in my life, so I get it.

I look forward to these each week, wondering what will come up in their lives.

I’m wondering if Richards intestinal flu is a result of eating the chicken that was a week old?!

I’m glad I discovered your blog, I love the diaries. Thank you for posting them.

Oh that Lena! Likely she was told to keep her foot elevated to keep the swelling down. Not unusual even after a cast is off for a limb to swell.

I am enjoying your comments about Lena's diary. I have had the same thoughts as each of you. :)

I was wondering about her swelling and the tight cast…now I have to look up piles in the dictionary. Sounds grim ;(

Hilo, I have written everything word for word in both diaries up until now. There was a part with a very vivid description that I could not bring myself to type out so I decided to spare everyone and I wish I had not read it. Ha! I took one for the team. Yes it is grim.
