      We've usually visited Dave's family in the Minnesota Twin City area, b/c he was born there and he has brothers and a half-sister.  The girl, Chris, was born when a man who married Dave's mom.  The girl was born when Dave was about 12.  Anyhow, usually we've been up there many times, usually a couple times a year, to see the family people and friends.  But we haven't been able to be there for a couple years.  Mostly it's b/c of my brain and body issue.  Suddenly, Christine, the gal, and her husband, Christopher, they came here on Friday night on his truck. [BTW, they've been married for 25 years; Dave and I were at the wedding way back then.] We picked them up where he had dropped off the truck.  It was amazing that they were able to be in the Omaha area. They were brought by Dave to be in our house late Friday night and during Saturday and Sunday Dave drove around and showed some things and we ate a couple places when driving.  This morning, about 8:30, Dave drove them to the truck.  On Friday and today I was in the car, too.  When Dave dropped them off, they left today about 9 while heading to the a portion of Iowa and going home to Minnesota.  BTW, on Friday, he had driven his truck from the Twin Cities, and other portions of Nebraska and South Dakota and had put his truck about 20 miles southwest away from Omaha. He left his truck at a local truck place.  When they got there this morning we gave lots of hugs!  It was a wonderful weekend.
          SO, this is the photos of them when we dropped them off today and made them SMILE!

AND, I'm sorry re: the writing.  I thought I shouldn't do it all today, but wanted to try again.  I didn't put things right.  I might re-write some of it even tomorrow.  Thank you for being so nice to me.  As I've said, the dementia has increased and I can't read and write very well any more.  Bless you all.

A reunion no matter how quick is always fun.
