No. We don't look of clocks here. Joyce doesn't want to know how late she will be to work. Ha!
I have been snoopering! I found Joyce's writings files here on her computer. It is well, she gave me permission to look and read and print. I have been doing this for many hours! I have nearly an inch of papers of copying! I was thinking to wonder, so I came here and found some of her posts.
She really is very funny also to here! She posted a picture of her cat inside of the crockpot and Ogress called it kitten teriyaki! Ha! Joyce found me looking at the post and she said, "Korea's not the only country with different white meat. You have a lot to learn, kid."
I tried to cover up my tears from packing Stela's furniture and belongings but I didn't fool her. She really didn't say so much. She would only walk by me and touch my arm or shoulder and whisper things like, "It's going to be okay, Cat. These are growing pains." Or, "You're doing the right thing, and I'm proud of you." Or, "There's nothing wrong with crying. Tears tell God what's really in your heart."
One special article caught my eyesight. It's called "Tribute to L... T...." I'll just say LT. LT passed away two years ago and Joyce dressed up in her Army formal uniforms and went to his funeral. LT was a door greeter of where Joyce works of Walmart. They became good friends, then he died of the cancer. She was asked to talk of him at his funeral and she gave me permission to share of the speech she made. She printed it for his wife and gave it to her. I'll post it quickly after this.
I talked to my family in the afternoon and they are well! Carl said Anna missed me! I miss her! Oh I miss them all! But it's nice to be here! It's so very confusing! Gwen and I went to a collection of very nice shops and to lunch again at a place called Hickory Tavern. I found nice gifts for my family and the lunch was so very nice!
The rain is so very bad here, there are floods in some of the streets. Joyce had to make many detours above the floods to get to home, and we were very happy and relieved to see her. Nicu called the Asheville airport to check of the repair to his plane and it has been repaired. A module in the autopilot had failed and he flied the plane manually from Knoxville, Tennessee to here. It was not a long flight but it was an unexpected delay for us.
Nicu's wife misses him also! She is so good and nice! She wished to come with us, but she cannot for her Mamma has bronchitis and she wished to remain with her. She promised to come sometime! I want to bring many people with me next time but we must stay in the hotels for Joyce's house may break at the corners with so many people, yes?
Tommorrow Justin is off of work, and he will take Nicu and me to their church and to a flea market! Joyce will be home early and I shall make dinner for everyone. On Monday, Joyce is off of work, and we shall be fixing foods for to take with us to the plane. We will not arrive to Bucharesti for four days for we must stop for rest. Nicu hasn't his co-pilot, for I am, but we must stop for rest for to keep the laws of flying. We will be stopping to Paris and I love Paris! Nicu has ordered to make a necklace for Mamma for she is a grandmother now and we must receive that also from a jeweller. It is a gold heart with sapphires on the perimeter with Anna's name on the heart. It is lovely!
I shall post Joyce's funeral speech, and we shall be back! She and Justin and Nicu are watching a movie and I'll tell her to post!
With very much love,
