CHAPTER SEVEN - MORE ABOUT FOOD
Before I start a new post about "FOOD" I would like to respond to two comments that I received last week.
"One Woman's Journey" said that I have given her food for thought about retirement living. She's far from ready but is finding my experiences in this retirement community interesting. As a matter of fact she said that there is a Brooksby Village in a big city near where her children live.
Even though she's not ready I think it would be a good idea when she visits her family in the "Big City" to make a visit and get acquained with the many amenities an Erickson community like Brooksby has to offer.
There is so much to know, you can't absorb it all in just a few visits. I speak from experience.

Then, he pointed to the refrigerator and I knew what he wanted!
I realized that he thought the word for MILK was MORE because I was always asking him if he wanted MORE!
That's it for this week!
Next week there will be more! ;-)
Millie, I smile you wrote about my comment. I love my country cottage and a dream come true of relocating back home. But being a planner and when I do not feel all that full of energy with so much to do - I begin to wonder. Hopefully I can stay put :)
Pretty close -- he got the "m" sound! Yeah, that was the part of the movie I didn't like -- suppose it was in the book -- but a bit much for me and I'm no prude.
That bit in The Help is just hilarious - you can see it coming and you kind of want to stop it but at the same time it's too funny.Post a Comment
