JUNE WILL SOON BE ‘BUSTING OUT ALL OVER!’
Monday, May 30, 2022


MAY 30 THRU JUNE 30, 2022 …IN KEY WEST WITH LYNDA

Dear Readers…It is mind-boggling, but I am sad to say that, after 24 truly wonderful years, this is the last month that we will be residing in our home on Caroline St.  Years filled with countless memories, great events, dinners, holidays, benefits, celebrations, shared with so many marvelous friends and family members….many who are reading this right now.  I am trying to look at it all in a positive way, but in reality, leaving  this home, where we have lived longer than any other, is breaking my heart.  I have loved all the houses we have lived in and they have each been difficult to leave…but this one will be especially difficult.  Keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we pack up all my many collections and decide where everything is going next….not an easy thing to do when you are young let alone when you are a Dinosaur.  For those who know me, I have enormous collections of antiques…. I have been collecting things to do with Little Red Riding Hood for years…plus have acquired a vast Christmas Collection….bathing beauties and things to do with the sea…. and so much more….. Our home, circa 1874, lent itself well to all these artifacts and collectibles.  Now they will  all be divided up and heading to a charming Century home in Chippewa Lake, Ohio, near Rose Cottage (that we plan to restore)…and to a 4 story Townhouse at Seaside South Ct.  We have much to look forward to and be excited about, but nevertheless, it is still very difficult.  I feel that we are in Limbo right now….Getting through the move is a challenge….but your support ‘behind the scenes’ will help.  We do not close on anything until June 30.  Until then, you can still send mail to us at 330 Caroline St., Key West, FL 33040.  After that, the best address for us will be 62 Bungalow Bay Blvd., Chippewa Lake, Ohio 44215.  That is where we will be all summer and into the fall, I think.    We do not start restoring our ‘new old home’ at Chippewa until after July 20.  Thankfully, we will live at Rose Cottage while this work is being done.  Anyway….our life is certainly heading toward new horizons!  Stay tuned! L

Bocdow. …Dee Dee Duecker … Karla Muir…Tony Freese… Jennifer O’Lear …….Margaret Taylor ……Patrick Richards.   Remember, there are many reasons that we pray…not just because people are ill…. I do believe that when we all send prayers and good vibes to those in need, those prayers mystically meet and surround those being prayed for.  Sometimes we pray for miracles and the impossible….sometimes we pray to just cope with the results of what happens to those we are praying for.  Sometimes we pray for strength to go on and to accept…sometimes we pray for thanksgiving.  We are in this thing called ‘Life’ together….and we all have power within us to help our fellow man.  Bless you for remembering our loved ones….Prayer changes things!  Let me know if you know of anyone who should be added to this list.
