Yes! Attending Reunion

2010 was a very interesting year for me. I had a heart transplant in March. Everything is fine and I feel great. I was so sorry to miss the reunion but felt it was a little early to travel. I really missed seeing everyone but 2015 will come around real quickly. My family and I are truly blessed by a family we do not know, they gave of their son on his death. Needless to say my family have signed up to be donors.
I have a grandson that is 11 and in the sixth grad a a granddaughter that is 16 months old and is at that wondeful fun age.

What did you always want to do that you haven't done yet?

Visit every state in the United States.
Spend a few days in Las Vegas.

Do you still have family in the Carbon area?

Yes. Mary Been Ragland lives in Eastland.

How old do you feel?

I feel much younger than 60 since the heart transplant but not 21--the age of the heart. To me age is a state of mind. If you want to feel old you will. We grew up with our Aunt Meredith Black Baze, who never complained although she was is constant pain with rhemutoid arithritis. She was a wonderful example of the lesson that it doesn't do any good to complain--if you are positive about things life is better.

What are your favorite places to go?

To visit Mary and Earl is Eastland.
Lake Somerville Marina either to work or to fish or to meet up with good friends.

What is the title of the last book you read?

Against All Odds by Chuck Norris

What is your favorite food?

My favorite food is FOOD but if I had to chose two it would be bacon, chocolate and home made yeast rolls.

Any words of wisdom?

Be thankful to God each day.
Live each day as if it was your last.
Do something nice for someone every day.
