The biggest surprise in all of my life was when this petite little head peered around my curtain, and needed no introduction whatsoever; she was beautiful! It was almost an unsavory time for visitors (no! don't you go away, you :). Jim was antsy in his chair facing the door, speaking to everyone who passed the door, which he does anyway, but in a "hurry, get on by, you're in the way, don't you know?" attitude. Know what? WHAT was going on? They he jumps up from his chair all excited, greeting whomever it was in the doorway that it WAS okay for them to be obstructing the passageway. MARGERY! Margery Fennell, Margery Fennell Morris! No, it cannot be. She lives in Alabama.
We talked, we giggled, it was just like long ago. Time passed all too quickly, and they had to go finally. We all asked questions. Larry asked questions of my wall which thrilled me so. Thank you Larry for wanting to know who everyone was, going way back into the 40s. Any more you've thought of that you did not get answered? After I get some scanned, I'll have some older ones, and you can come back and look at those and see if you know who those are. Chaces are I might not know who those are if they are too old, though. He couldn't get over we have five (5) great grand children - me neither, Larry..... the cost went up considerably, and each one didn't seem to understand why.No way can she be here in Jonesboro at the nursing center. Wonder of all wonders.
Margery, you will never know the love/friendship I have had for you all these years, and have longed to see you once again beyond our youth, and I do consider our time on our way to Turkey still in our youth. My, I was still VERY young, and I'm sure you were, too. lol I got to Turkey, and found out I knew absolutely nothing at all!! Nothing! I got off that plane, and wanted to get right back on it headed to the states, even to Maryland, even on a prop plane, even in the rain! Thank you for coming to see me. Thank you very, very very much. That was quite a surprise you and Jim cooked up. That had to be the best one yet for him I do believe.
