Dan Fogelberg August 13, 1951 - December 16, 2007

Dan Fogelberg, one of my favorite singer/songwriters died of prostrate cancer yesterday. The video is one of my favorite songs of his. His song "Longer" was sang at my wedding. It just makes me so very sad. Back in the 1980's when he was touring, he did a concert here in the Twin Cities. My husband just happen to be at a St. Paul hardware store when one of Dan's roadies came in looking for tools. We thought that was so cool! He will be missed.

Well, we made it home and we arrived to find quite a surprise. I'm figuring out how to download my pictures onto my son's computer so you will have to wait a day or two. They say a picture is worth a thousand words.

We have about five inches of snow on the ground and have missed a lot of the big snowstorms which is just fine with me. We also arrived to find out furnace not working properly and when it is 0 degrees Fahrenheit and you are used to 35-40 degrees Fahrenheit, you are freezing all the time. It was fixed without costing too much.

I also had an early Christmas present. I've had a sore tooth since the first week we moved (about 6 months) but held off going to a Korean dentist. It only hurt when I chewed on that side so I was able to get by. I needed a root canal which was my first and I was TERRIFIED. My dentist did an excellent job and I can now chew on both sides of my mouth. WooHoo!

I was wondering how it was going at home. Just figured you were busy! Had Luke been without heat long when you arrived???

Hope you have a great Christmas!!! Miss you!!!

Holly: He could keep the temp around 62 which is pretty darn cold for me. Miss you too! I left a message for you and I'll try to call you again before we leave.

Helena: I still forget that I can chew on my right side. Duh!
