I didnt confront her directly, but i did. make a post of my own. I tried to include other points of his life, including his great love of Christmas. My Mom had him, my Dad raised him as his own, and we loved him. He had problems including drugs and alcohol. He had his faults, just like me and everybody else. We fought alot. But we were family. You do for family. Sorry for the long post. Thankful for my Christmas family. :rabstar:

My heart breaks for you CandyKane. You're such a wonderful and loving sister. You both were blessed to be in each others lives. I know you'll miss him dearly. I'm still praying for you and your family.

I bought early Christmas presents for Michelle and I. Two Fire HD 10 tablets. $90 each. I thought it was a good bargain. :D


I am looking for an offline ebook reader. Maybe Santa will bring me one for Christmas.

Last year for Christmas in August, we were at the Ice Hotel. This year I have booked a local hotel for a "staycation" after visiting the Ice Bar. The theme of the icebar this year is immigration, the Swedish migration in the 1800's. I can't wait. We now know to take Pictures first as you do not have time to see and view the text. The local hotel is decorated inside like the one we were in (it's a chain). I want to feel like I am in the forest. Then we are 15 minutes from home and the cats. The best of both Worlds. :elfgrin: :gbhouse: :scene:
