Hey Indy Sam! WOW!! You Got To Meet POOKIE!!!
I'm so jealous I don't know what to say!! WAIT!! I DO know what to say to that!! And I am really really saying it, too!!! "HAVE A BIRDY DAY!" And your good Momma did just THAT with the original 'birdy day" authors! Wonderful!! Just WONDERFUL!! It sounds so much like paradise in Hawaii & all islands near about! What a fantastic, dream come true vacation!

Mom NEEDS a real vacation from her vacations to her Mom and sister's home. She loves them dearly but they need lots of physical help. Nanny is 91 this year & feisty as ever. Her sister can't do many things she used to due to her loss of her leg 3 years ago. They are still adjusting the house to fit her new needs & that was an up hill battle with Nanny. Being that old, she didn't like the change AT ALL!! She would have kept things just as they were but my sister would be living & sleeping in the living room due to her first being in a wheelchair!! Man oh me did they have a time getting things thinned out and the flooring changed. Doors & door jams changed to accommodate wheel chair widths. A new bathroom to house the new needs for getting clean for her.

Mom's mission is to do the stuff that her sister would have normally done on her own. They have an indoor pool but now Mom is the one who cleans it really good. They still are trying to figure out a way to get her sister from the side of the pool to being into the water. That's the easy part! Mom has threatened to just wheel her over there to the side and tump her in!!! Hahaha! No, she would never do that but they ARE sisters. You know how they can get! Getting in would be easy. It's the getting back out that is the tricky part. Mom was there willing & able to try but her sister backed down from it. It scares her sister to feel so helpless & is afraid she will hurt Mom as she tries to help her get out. Maybe next year or with one of their brothers she will feel more confident in at least trying!

Mom did many many things there for them. Lots of appointments she was able to drive them there & many errands she could run for them too. One day, Mom just packed up the wheelchair (for Nanny, her stamina gives out pretty quickly when they go out) and put that in the trunk, fussed her sister into the car and took them to do some antiquing at a new shop that had opened close by their home. So, it wasn't far, but it was BIG and they both had a great time! Lots of memories for Nanny when she'd see something and say "I USED TO HAVE ONE OF THOSE!!!" It made a them laugh!!

Mom even did some baking for her sister when she was asked by the base's general to do an interview with the TV station for some history about the base. That put a kink in her sister's plans but Mom helped her save the day by cooking up some cheese straws, muffins, cookies, cheese & sausage balls. It was fun for Mom who rarely bakes much any more since the kids are grown & gone.
