Ask Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. She knew where Glinda The Good Witch of the North and the Wizard would take her, back to Aunty Em and Uncle Henry and the scarecrow, tin man and cowardly lion farm hands. Along with the shady Wizard who flew the balloon back to Kansas.

A man from my husband’s years of growing up died the other day and will be put to rest this morning. We cannot be there but sent a note through my mother-in-law. As for a pallbearer, my father-in-law, he could not have a better friend other than his dear wife, their sons and grandchildren.

I know my home is here with my husband and dog. Both my parents are gone now and there is no land to call home. Dad used to love land, views et al. The “house on the hill” was our masterpiece. It was completely unfinished. At age eight I used a manual miter box and saw to frame the windows. I also had to learn to use both hands standing atop a ladder to place ceiling pieces in the basement. That was really hard for a little kid. A staple gun, really?

The doc who bought the house, still has it. He must be retired by now. I’ve tried to get in touch with him over the years just to say hello, find out how things are going and see that he gets in touch with me before he sells the property. Dad chose well. It does have a great view!

I will have to design my own home if I’m still alive when my husband retires. I’ve ideas. Trying to figure out post and beam. It will be my last home. Dee
