Gosh! I’ve not posted in FOREVER!

Since we got home from our vacation to NJ, we’ve been busy filling out forms, searching for Rudy’s Army buddies from Nam and getting doctor & friends to write letters for Rudy’s VA claim.

It’s brought back alot of memories from 38 years ago (Rudy and I got married a  week after he got home from doing his tour in the Army in VietNam.)

We also had our 38th anniversary on the 17th! I made Rudy an anniversary card:


Mona called and wished us a happy anniversary and told us our gift would arrive in Sept. (Rudy spotted some ferns in her yard and really liked them, so she ordered some for our present, but the company will not ship to WA until Sept.)

Gina wished us a happy anniversary from Iowa and Joe stopped by and wished us a happy anniversary too! He brought a card over that Gina had made for us: awesome job on it!


Nee’, she IM’d me early Friday morning to wish us a happy anniversary.

We had a great time in NJ with Mona, Marc, Meg, & Madi. Rudy helped Marc put their bathroom back together while we were there, most of it was completed.

We went to Jersey City to catch the ferry:

Used to be an old train station.


visited Ellis Island:


Liberty Island: Statue of Liberty


Morristown: Ford Mansion,Washington’s Headquarters:


Jockey Hollow:


Valley Forge: Meg, Rudy & Madi


Princeton (saw the bridge they show on “House”),

Atlantic City: Madi & Meg on the beach


On the Fourth of July, we had an afternoon BBQ, went to new Ice Age 3d movie, then watched fireworks from the golf course hear Mona’s house. There were so many fireworks that we could see in the sky from many locations.

Was a good trip and it’s always sad when it’s time to go home!
