Audrey: My breakfast is ﬁxed every morning. Ernie is a great cook. The cat, the dog and me are keeping house. Buddy (the dog) is enough! We get along good during the week! Crystal comes and goes, and, of course, Ernie is always working. Crystal takes care of the four babies every Wednesday morning. She comes home tired, but she loves to care for them.
Audrey: Buddy, he is under a big umbrella, and he shakes to get the water off him. The cat sleeps 18 hours a day. I guess the cat is bored. I’m feeling ﬁne. No pains. No aches. Looking out the window, there are no birds in the rain.
Audrey: Brenda was here. She is bound and possessed she will get better. I hope to God she does. Dawn comes over for pizza today at 3 PM. Haven’t seen Doreen’s house. I guess she will have a “House Warming”. Michelle’s house is pretty. It is painted yellow. She and Jessica live on the same street where Dad’s older brother Robert and his wife Gladys used to live. That Jessica, she is a runner.
There was a lawn party at Spencer’s. Ten or twelve played croquet ball throw. Brian (Jr.) was working all the time. He has a car. Has a license and can drive with someone else in the car. He is a nice boy. He is a good worker. He is going to be a ﬁne person. Meagan is active and Mathew Spencer, they go on a school bus.
Audrey: It is raining and the leaves are dropping. The trees will be bare pretty soon. I’m getting old. I’m happy I’m here. I have the cat and Buddy (the dog) for friends. Buddy carts a rag baby around in his mouth, and he looks so happy every time he ﬁnds it.
Brenda looks good. She says she is not dying with cancer. She is living with cancer. She has had the water drawn off. She is a ﬁghter. I’ve never seen her look better. She wears the hats that Deardra designed and everyone is asking about those hats. They make her look so pretty. Spencer is ﬁne. He’s determined that Brenda will live and he will not think of her dying. She is a ﬁghter and he is right with her.
