My love
Sunday night - nearly midnight...I remember we would be downtown, just hanging out...walking around aimlessly - mostly looking for trouble - lol.
Do you recall the ‘dairies’ out in West Sac - we’d bring home sandwich stuff and chips and cookies for Cella and the little boys....funny how I don’t remember Linda being there, but she must have been - she was only about 12 or 13 then.
Guess that’s what happens when we get old - selective memories. I choose to remember (and romanticize) those times.
You’re right - we were - are - crazy...we could have had it all - but instead we threw it away - multiple times....we are so lucky to have this last chance.
Safe - yes - you always made me feel safe...even when we argued, I knew that you’d never touch me violently - and that you’d die before you let anything hurt me. I’ve always had a hang up about being safe and secure - so odd when you think about how fearless I acted - lol
I love you. Always and forever....I know you won’t get this until way after Christmas, but Merry Christmas anyway. I’ll mail your card this week...
Love - always and all ways
Your Jeannie

My dear love
New Year’s Eve. I’ll be next door at Amber’s - we will read the letter that we wrote last year (predictions) and laugh about the successes and failures. Then we’ll come up with the crazy predictions for the upcoming year. Probably wrap it up and be in bed by 10 at the latest - the guys all work tomorrow. They really only get 2 holidays off - Christmas and Thanksgiving.
I don’t think my last message has been mailed as yet, so you’ll get both together. Hopefully you’ll have already received my Christmas card - I talked to John yesterday and he didn’t have his as yet - guess that’s what happens when they aren’t mailed until Christmas Eve - lol
Time for me to go feed the dogs - and take my morning medicines - sigh. I should drive into town and get my second shingles shot (oh boy)
I love you - will be with you in my heart when the world changes to 2020.
As always, my love...
Your Jeannie
