My sister and I have been talking lately about people we remember from our childhood… People we have no idea how to contact… And, our life story is pretty complicated :) there’s not many people to ask… We’re looking for people like the very nice woman who was my father’s girlfriend when he died… Her name was Arlene, and that’s all I know… I have no memory of her last name, but she had brown hair :) So, if you’re reading this… Your name is Arlene, and approx. 32 years ago you were dating a man named Paul Cassidy (who had 2 adorable little girls :) )… can you contact me??? We’re looking for you :) Anyway, that story is directly related to one of today’s “thankfulnesses” (I know… not a word…) I was also looking for my cousin Jeff, we’re the same-ish age, and the last time I saw him was just about 20 years ago (how THAT’s possible, I have no idea!)… After my grandfather moved to Maryland, whenever I’d visit, Jeff and I used to go into Washington DC or Annapolis and hang out together… I sent a “random” message to someone I thought was him on facebook, and YEAH!! It IS him :) so glad it wasn’t a random stranger who got my “hey, are you my cousin?” message!
Another thing to be thankful for… No More School Committee!!! The town election is over, and Mike is no longer a member of the board!! I am thankful he did not run for re-election, I’m not sure I could take another 3 years… To my dear husband… Job well done!! Now, let someone else do it :)
And… It’s a BEAUTIFUL day today… the sun is shining, it’s breezy… I better got get something cooked for supper :)
