I would like to thank everyone that helped make my parents feel welcome at the Houston HH Saturday night.

They drove down from Saskatchewan Canada to come spend a couple of months with me. They have always wanted to travel but have never had the money to do it. So my sisters and brother all got together and bought them a Cruise leaving out of Galveston next weekend and surprised them with it at the Houston HH.

Thanks WW for helping me make the evening special for them.

How cool! I'm glad your parents are going to get "a taste of the world". I hope they enjoy the cruise!
And, Kamala's a little young to be going for the blue rinse, isn't she? :teeth: Looks like everyone had a great time.

Thanks to everyone who have given kind words about my parents.

Unfortunately Dad ended up in the hospital this week with a blood clot in his leg. He was released yesterday with strict instruction of complete bed rest and advised not to go on the cruise.

Dad is feeling much better and is back at my house. They are very disappointed that they will not be able to go on the cruise.

They are staying at my house and will continue to snowbird in Texas for the rest of the winter.

PM me if you want their e-mail address or phone number to send them a letter of encouragement or would like to just give them a call.

Keep them in your prayers

OMGosh!!!! Maurice, I am soooooo sorry to hear of the news! It was such a pleasure to meet your parents, and I was soooo excited for them. I do hope they are able to go on a cruise later. As mentioned by Kamala, it is good that the clot was discovered early. Hope your dad is able to recover quickly. Good thoughts and prayers are headed their way.
Take care,
Margaret
