I had a surprise visit from Ben, Heather, and the girls one afternoon. They were on their way back from Charleston and was only going to visit for a little while but ended up spending the night. We had a lovely visit and the next day when they left Ruby said, "get in mom". I loved it she wanted to take me with them.
Been having trouble with this water situation for months. Monday Blaine King and I drove to Spencer and I bought a new water storage tank. We installed it and the world is a better place. I love not hearing the pipes jerk around in the basement. It hurt my heart to hear that. Thought it was all going to fall apart. I should have had it done months ago, but now it's a good thing.
Hey Melvin Siers out there in Washington State, give me a call as I may have information you could use in the Siers family history.
Carolyn Thompson from Beverly Hills, MI is well learned on our history. Her mother was Laura Siers from Nicholas County. Her father was Oscar Ward Siers. I have her phone number for you. Hope your doing fine.
May 11, 12, and 13 are known as the three Chilly Saints because these days are traditionally the coldest of the month. American folklore held that these days would bring a late frost. Happy that my lilac bush is in full bloom now. Last May Daddy and I covered plants for 5 days in a row.
On May 8, 1914, President Woodrow Wilson made the proclamation designating the second Sunday in May Mother's Day, within a few years, the idea gained worldwide prominence. Wonder why?
Love the weather and am having the yard mowed, and planting flowers.
Emma Deal seems to be doing fine and is at herself and the Rehabilitation Center at Big Otter. Hope she is home soon.
I miss him. Ray L. Siers
Have a wonderful week!
