I believe that Mama is very pleased with us becoming a closer Family and with what we are doing here. She likes new things. She very much enjoyed and understood the Moon Landings, Voyager, etc. while she was here with us in physical form. If she were still in that form she would be right here online with us, with that special "proud" smile every time she learned something new!

Man, was I tired. It had been an exceptionally good week, but one week with my
great-nephews was enough. Don't get me wrong, they are great boys, but I am
getting a little too old to keep up with them on a regular basis. You see, for some
reason they insist on acting like boys, and doing all the things that energetic young

Erica was here for Christmas and we had a good "get aquainted" visit. She is a beautiful young lady and a typical teenager. We went to Bush Gardens with Audrey and Becca, and had a fun time. We all cried when she had to leave.
Audrey, Becca and Charlie are all well. Charlie [C.J.] is now walking. The new addition to their family will be about Aug.18.
Last Fall Ray enclosed our back pourch. Put in a huge picture window and finished it all in cedar paneling. It is beautiful and gives me peace in my soul for hours, as I sit there and watch the wild birds come and go.
We have seen many different kinds of birds here. Migratory [robins, orioles, cedar waxwings, northern shrike, various warblers, etc.] and local [white wing, ringneck and mourning doves, grackels, redwing blackbirds, cardinals, bluejays, mockingbirds and more. Have I made you think I love birds? I wonder why?
I really enjoyed my recent trip to see Burton and Billy in Denver and to pick up my '81 Lincoln Mark 6. It is a signature series and in 2 years I can get a collectable tag on it.
I also spent a day at the house of Burt's friends. We had corn beef and cabbage [delicious!], made by J.R., the brother who studied to be a chef. I learned to play a 'new to me' domino game; played with partners, like a card game. And I met the Grandmom, Great Grandmom, Mom & Dad, their 3 boys and the 2 brothers. They treat Burt as a brother and made me feel like family, too. Even gave me their E-Mail address :).
I spent several days with Billy and Maria. She is a sweet woman whom I have come to love. We went to Mass on Sunday. The Church and service were both beautiful. I went for a ride with Billy to see the MOUNTAINS which were breathtaking and made me homesick. Billy and I had many long spiritual talks. He has finally begun to take that first step to The CREATOR OF US ALL,and seen that He or She cannot be limited to rigid values. He is struggling with himself.
I also saw Reba, on my way home. She is much better, but very homesick for us all. She feels that if she could come back she can never again come "home".
I want to send Chris special love and thanks for giving me such a wonderful gift. It has brought me closer to all of you and I love you all very much.
Oh, I forgot to mention that I also stopped to see Shelva and Mable. They both looked great and Shelva hopes to soon be on line. LUV U . Faye Clark Haynes

Sub Tropical Spring [:o(
This time of year is when I really miss being in a different part of Turtle Island. When everything turns green after being brown and tan or white for a few months; when the trees are covered with beautiful, fragrant blossoms; when flocks of retuning birds pass by; when all the four leggeds give birth to a new generation; it truly seems like a resurrection, a time of new beginnings. The Cycle of Life is obvious. This lifts our hearts and spirits.
Here there is little change. Grasses and some trees become a little greener. The birds nest again, but these changes are subtle, so do not have the same effect as in less mild climates.
I have a new friend who is a native Californian like we three siblings. The photos she sent of her Mountain Home make Faye and I homesick. She is one of my Medicine Wheel students. I am getting a lot of requests for information from my Star Spider Dancing pages. So far I have been able to tell them where to find the information they need even though I usually have to send them to another page. But Jan is the only one I have really got to know and become close to.
Jack is working days again. It is a good thing. He never did adjust to nites. Could not sleep enough in the day time. Not because of disturbances, he is just not a Nite Owl. Like the seasons here, everything else is about the same. We wish the whole Family a happy Spring. Enjoy, as it will not be here again til next year, )smile(
