#3

My husband's sister lives in the same town with us, just three miles away.  While we used to see each other almost every day because we worked at the same school, now we sometimes don't meet more than twice a month.  Today we drove together to Orange County to babysit my two little ones while their mommy and daddy were attending a foster parenting seminar.

My husband's sister is a funny woman.  On the way home, I called The Professor for a traffic update.  Knowing I would need the information, he was prepared and instructed me to change my route to avoid a traffic jam.  Sister in law's comment:  "Having been warned by John in a dream, we returned home another way."

Thankful for family and funny commentary!

Brilliant, i usually do the same when I'm travelling on the train, which isn't very often. Then I ring Tony and tell him the problem with the trains/buses in London and he suggests and alternative. Always thankful for help. Jane x

LOL--good to have advice in what roads to avoid because of traffic!

Thank you for all your kind words of support for the Hurrican Sandy victims and your tips on being prepared. I have been voluteering at a temporary shelter In Brooklyn the past few days for people that lost their homes. It is wonderful to see how many people are helping and donating goods that are needed.
