Snow On Snow

Saturday, December 18th, 2010

I am being the geek this afternoon, trying to figure out how to get photos from my camera-to the iPad-then into my blog. I used my new connector to get them on the iPad. But I could not upload them to the blog in the usual way. So, I used my Flickr app to post them there. Then, was able to copy and paste the URL for the photo into the blog. Whew!

We had no travel problems on Thursday, just a lot of take offs and landings. We made it to the calling hours about half way through. I missed seeing many friends who had come earlier.

It is the bleak mid-winter -cold and snow on snow.

The service for Ray was beautifully done with lots of special music, readings and lovely comments from those who loved and admired this gentle man -a man of few words, but always kind words and a constant twinkle in his eye. My sister is holding up as best as she can. I am not sure it has all sunk in yet.

It was wonderful to spend time with family members and to become reacquainted with some kids I have not seen for some time.

I am having a laid back day with my sis, Carole and family. Mia has pneumonia. I called her yesterday on her 11th birthday and she sounded so sick, I almost could cry. I look forward to getting home to help out. At least I can entertain Miles while mom and dad and Mia get well.

Tomorrow, we travel to Philadelphia to Phoenix and then to Portland.
Please excuse any typos; it is too much trouble to edit on the iPad.
