Louisiana Sandusky in Tennessee gets a second letter from her new friend in Minnesota.

Weds., February 21, 2007, 10:11 a.m.~

Dear Louisiana~

Thanks for your entertaining letter; 'twas good to hear from you! Thanks for writing back so fast! I hope this finds you well!

It sounds like you have your hands full with all those children. Sheesh! I can't imagine parenting that many children! Parenting Paul, Megan, and Chong is enough! Speaking of, the kids are well; hope your children are well, too, partticularly the new ones (Emir, Habir, Emma-Ruth, and Opal). It must be scary for them to be in a strange country where people speak a language they aren't familiar with; how do you communicate with them? It was hard with Chong at first because he didn't speak English, but eventually he learned, and now he can't shut up! LOL

I hope you know bits and pieces of the languages of the lands where your children come from! That would probably help!

Well, it's warmed up here; it was in the thirties to forties here; very delightful. The children are able to go outside without having to dress in layers, and our van starts right up, no problem. I have been trying to do some yardwork, and Paul has been readying the house for spring. Spring is definitely on the way here; next month it will be here! I can't wait; I am more than ready for the winter to end! We had a hard, cold winter here!

The northern lights have been active; another sign spring is on its way. Plus the robins have been singing; they are really loving this warmer weather almost as much as me!

How is the weather there in Tennessee? What kind of summer do you think we are going to have? Hopefully it won't be too hot; I don't like hot weather, it really bothers me, especially now that I am getting older. (I am 43 years old now. My hubby is 49.) I know you are from Louisiana originally so hot weather probably doesn't bother you as much.

Speaking of Louisiana, did you see the Mardi Gras in New Orleans? I am glad they are getting back to the swing of things. So bad she was torn up like she was thanks to the  hurricane. What a mess!

Have you ever been to Mardi Gras? I wouldn't mind going, but I don't know if I could put up with all the craziness--and just to get some beads! Nuts! And the way those drunk people act--not a place to take the kiddies, that is for sure!

Well, Louisiana, I will leave you now. Chong is crying; he apparently messed up his pants, and he is upset. Take care, and God bless you always! Thanks for your letter; again, it was nice to hear from you! Do write again soon!

(((HUGS))) and love, your new friend in Duluth, Margot Claire Hamblin. :)
