Thanks so much for all your notes. To answer a few questions: I have 5 wonderful daughters in law. Very sweet and helpful as I have needed it on occasion. I had knee replacement done 2.5 yrs ago and needed someone to help and they (and the sons) took turns until I could do things myself. I will use them all again as am thinking I am going to have to have the other knee done the end of summer. Last year I moved and they all pitched in and have helped.
I have not read much of Stephen King, but have watched several of the movies (altho I know that's not quite the same) but still enjoyable.
Yes, our house was a riot!! The boys will ask about things when they were little, like who did something, etc and I say " well, it was one of you". It just all blends together. Maybe when I am 80, I will remember all those details--I just won't know what I am doing TODAY
