||Life certainly has its twists and turns. You seem to have had your fair share of unexpected happenings this year,Egbert,but also plenty of happy and sucessful things have come your way. The most important thing is happiness and contentment with what one has.
At the moment I am spending time with my lovely parents celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary. Mum had a heart attack in April and then pancreatitis with a few stays in hospital but now she is fit again (although she lost a lot of weight). We have been to East Tyrol for a few days with them and their friends plus Samantha and her boyfriend. The "Oldies" certainly gave the young ones a run for their money. What a wonderful time we had and what a laugh! We made so many sweet memories....that is what life is all about.
