June 6 - Priscilla Smith - I live in Salem, in is western Kenosha county. It is in a lovely neighborhood in view of a scenic small lake ..... not far from Antioch, Illinois. We are just across the border here in Wisconsin. That is the area where my family came from and where most still live. Both of my parents were born in Wadsworth (outside of Antioch and about 30 miles west of Waukegan). I came back to this area to be by my family. I felt my daughter would never see her relatives again if we stayed in California. I do, however, really miss being there and sometimes wonder if I did the right thing. But now that I've invited my parents to live with us, I (for the most part) realize this was a good decision. They are so sweet, but have a little trouble doing things as they are getting on in years. My dad is 88. He reads to my daughter from the James Herriott books (All Creatures Great & Small, etc.) He helps me with the garden. My mom is an artist and also loves to do crossword puzzles, just like me. So we are happy campers. (But I do, so much, miss our old friends.)
