Thank you to Dave and all the Veterans for serving our country.
We ended up going back to my brother Jerry’s to sleep last night. So this morning we left for LeSueur, MN to see Dave’s mom. Her husband of 40 years passed away about a year ago. So she has decided to move to Cumberland, WI to be near her daughter, Debbie. She thought she would move in June, but an apartment opened up that she could get into right away. So we spent some time today talking through the options of when to move. She could get into her new apartment next week, so we lined up a U-Haul truck and plan to just “get ‘r done” next week while we are available to help.
She had a lot of things packed already. So today we spent time going through all the logistics of making the move. Looking at the weather, we decided on next week Wednesday to load and drive to Wisconsin. Alice called several people from her church that had offered to help her move. So we have a ‘bucket brigade” lined up for Wednesday, November 18. We hope some of them are younger than her.

We were invited out to lunch with a friend of Alice’s that wanted to say good-bye. Alice and I went to visit Alice’s insurance agent before lunch. She had to transfer her medical, car and renter’s insurances. So many things to think of.
After a nice lunch, I drove 3 hours to Sioux Falls, SD. I have a couple girlfriends there from my hometown that I wanted to visit. I stayed with Sheryl Gerdes Bedard. We have been friends since 1st grade.
We went to see the movie “the Martian” tonight. I don’t get to go to the theater often, so it was a treat. And the movie was good.
