My friend in Los Alamos had the only house that withstood the fires awhile back, thanks to a newish metal roof. She felt so sad for her neighbors and coworkers and threw at least one party or more, trying to feed and comfort those she could. I sent her the largest capacity rice cooker Costco had.
Daughter and fiance just moved into their new house. She’s a second-year medical student and he’s a pilot for a major U.S. airline.
Just look at the joy on their faces!
My daughter took possession of her new home this weekend too. They have about a month of work to do before they move in (floors, paint, fix the fence) and have to travel for yet another wedding in Feb. Everyone’s happy!
