Today the guys had planned to go fishing in Mom’s new husband’s ponds, but Ron got sick yesterday and was in bad shape today. Some kind of stomach bug. So they ended up postponing the fishing.
Mom and Jean (French for John, apparently) are keeping both their houses. Mom has a very modest little frame house. Jean’s is a big, comfortable brick home a few miles farther out of town. He has cattle and sweet, beautiful working dogs, so Mom and he make frequent trips back and forth, but have chosen to live in Mom’s little house.
So they took us to see Jean’s house today. I didn’t take photos of the beautiful interior because it just didn’t seem right. But I couldn’t resist their huge screened in porch!
We were very impressed with Jean — most importantly because we have never seen Mom so happy before. He’s friendly and easy-going, and we enjoy being around him.
We were planning to leave tomorrow, but since Ron was sick, he needs another day to recover before we hit the road. He’s doing a lot better this evening, so we expect him to bounce back fast.
I took a few pictures of Jean, but they didn’t turn out well. But just so you know, he is tall, thin and handsome. 🙂
