A New Month and A New Day

Well, I got through the week.  Yesterday I traveled up to my mom's house.  We met with the nice young man from the cemetery.  I helped Mom arrange for David's military headstone.  Then we went to three different banks where she has accounts.  She had to arrange to take David's name off the accounts.  She also had to check what accounts she has where and what the correct balances are.  She does get a bit confused by all the financial matters.  I'm afraid I wore her out.  By the time we finished running around to all the banks she was exhausted and hungry.  So, we went home and had lunch and she took a nap.

Last weekend, we took her out to dinner at one of our old favorites, The Grand Finale in Cincinnati.

They serve all of their fresh fish with a lobster sauce that is the BEST thing I have ever tasted.  It comes with mushroom crepes and salads with sliced avocados and a huge selection of wonderful homemade salad dressings.

Plus it has a nice atmosphere and very good service.  So, that was enjoyable.

On the way to Mom's house, on I-75, we pass a church that has a giant statue of Jesus in the front.  I think it's about 50 feet tall.  It replaced another statue that was nicknamed "Touchdown Jesus" because it showed him just from the waist up, rising out of a pond with his arms up in the air.  That one was struck by lightning and burned down.  I didn't get a very good picture because it was stormy and we were rushing by in the car.

This is the view in my sister's back yard.  I love the red and green leaves on the tree...

... a last bit of color before winter sets in.

You are so good to your Mum Judy. With all that you have been through it proves that when you don't know where to start, you just have to start somewhere - what a great job you've done.
I'm intruiged by the Touchdown Jesus that was.
We don't have any big Jesuses (Jesi?)here in S.Aust - only a big mythical bunyip creature emerging from a pond. Must do a post about it for you!

The Touchdown Jesus was emerging from a pond too. I will post a photo of it how it was before it was struck by lightning and burned.
