After All

When my sister asked if I could take Dad to a doctor's appointment on Monday, I said of course.  I left work at 11, drove 2 hours in thick fog, to pick my Mom and Dad up for a doctor's appointment at 2.  The appointment went well (I'm always impressed with the VA) and my Dad said he already felt better.  We stopped at Ollie's discount where we put Mom in a wheel chair and got her a Shark rug sweeper she's been wanting.  We all enjoyed a chicken meal at a restaurant where we saw a distant cousin!  My Dad eats so good and Mom did too.  It rained all day, but I had to get their picture before I journeyed home.  Only 2 pictures, not posed. . . just a genuine show of affection I'll always treasure.

Here they are. . . after 68 years of marriage. . . still in love.

I love them so!

Hi Cindy... this is such a lovely photo, and story :) You asked about my Grandpop after the war.. He was OK, he had difficulty talking about what happened to him during his time in Changi,and actually never did talk.. he died very young (the week he turned 60) and they said it was due to all the stress his young body endured during his time as a POW.. thank you for asking about him xx
