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.)

Keep on keepin' us laughin' ....
Priscilla
