I'm happy to report that Mom is greeting widowhood with grace.
she & Dad were married for 66 years. so it's a difficult stage in her life. but she's being brave. because the hurricane causd my visit for her birthday to not happen we celebratd all over again.
& for a change the weather was beautiful. my favorite time of year in Ohio has always been oct. on sat cousin Sal took me on a little trip. here he is with Lorain's famous bascule bridge which has been stuck in the up position for 4 months.
one of the world's largest drawbridges it was opend in 1940. watching it part & lift was a boyhood thrill.
