Ray brought Clinton Goff from Virginia to be our 8th resident in November.  Clinton is in worse condition than our other residents… but is slowly adjusting to PG.  Clinton’s cousin, Don Lewis, who lives near here came to visit with Clarence.  Don said Clinton has several strikes against him, physical, mental and being a Goff!  Takes one to know one.  The cousins are visiting on the couch in the picture below.

Tomorrow Marybelle Armstrong is to join us from Redbud Canyon.  I’ll include that in the December blog.

Other visitors (that we have pictures of) included Jim Stipp, Delbert and Penny Lewis, Robert and Linda Klepzig, and then Marie and Joyce.  Mike Callaway and Dave Larson are here visiting today.

There were about 30 here for Thanksgiving, most shown in the 2 pictures below.

Patrick Kelleher (our son-in-law who works here at PG) had a birthday.  His little son Dylan got a helmet to help straighten his misshapen head.

Here’s Naomi and Roger in the nursing home.  Naomi seems to be gradually improving… we see her up more, and her attitude is good.  Roger is basically completely deaf now… we have to write notes to him, but his spirits are good.  Teresa Goff is in bed more, but is in good spirits.  She’s aware her brother-in-law Clinton is here, but we haven’t been able to take him in to see her yet.

Kathy and I made our yearly trip to Aberdeen Scotland.  A few pictures of our friends there for those who may know them.

Ty has a longhorn cow and a young bull (not related) that will be a longhorn eventually.  The bull follows the cow around like it’s scared.  Bambi (who is growing horns, so is a he) is now sporting a red collar.  Hopefully that will be enough for hunters to notice, now that it’s deer hunting season.  He’s free to roam, but stays close.
