The Memorial Service for Dad was today. What a lovely celebration of his life. Thank you all who came to honor the life of my most wonderful father. And thank you for dressing, as we requested, in bright colors to celebrate life eternal. The Sunnyside staff even met people with a box of Hawaiian […]

Orville Howard Davidsmeyer, Jr., born November 30, 1922, died July 9, 2013. Well done good and faithful servant, well done.
I can’t quite comprehend a world without him. I will miss my Dad more than words can ever express.
Well, I’ve been at Hearland rehab now for a few days. Had a few little post-surgery issues, but doing quite well now. I confess, I’m so enjoying just being able to relax and re-coup. It’s so nice not having to worry about laundry or meals or any of the day-to-day. The staff here are nice. […]

Today I said good-bye to my beloved Miss Kitty. She came to me as an adult cat and I’ve been blessed to have her in my life for nine years.
Rest in peace, my sweet kitty.
Best laid plans of mice and men, and apparently dieters, go often awry. A week has passed now since my accident. The insurance company has designated my car a total wreck. And I’m feeling like my doctor should designate me as one, too.
Ow, ow, ow! I’m glad the x-rays show no broken bones, but, […]

1) Came in to work and was told by my principal that Sarasota County has decided to eliminate all media specialists (or, as we used to be called, “librarians”). So, […]
I had some wonderful treats as gifts from my students. Very sweet of them. Of course, they have no idea that I’m living a new lifestyle. While I will re-gift some things — I’d NEVER re-gift something that a student gave me. Their thoughts and consideration are just too precious to me.
One little girl […]
