WELCOME TO MY WORLD: “Do we need to feel bad if the oscars get rained on?”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “WE ALL HAVE A PLACE IN THIS WORLD AND WE NEED TO MAKE THE BEST OF IT”–In 1951 I met a young man named Colin, at the time I had never heard of the name. We met at a wedding dance in Merrill, Iowa IN 1962. He told me his mother named him after a cousin of hers in South Dakota. All through High School he never heard of anyone with the name. Lately we have heard the name more often.—Grandpa Colin and I took the Luban girls into the city for dance class. They always have a great time, seeing friends only once a week.—-BOOK 1–“ROSE’S BETRAYAL AND SURVIVAL”–chapter 1–HE WAS ALWAYS HOME BY LATE AFTERNOON. WHILE LOUIS DONLIN HAD BEEN PICKING UP SUPPLIES IN THE GENERAL STORE, HE READ A NOTICE ON THE WALL, WHICH HAD STATED A MAN IN THE OKLAHOMA TERRITORY WANTED A BRIDE, AND WOULD BE WILLING TO PAY FOR HER. THE DOOR SLOWLY OPENED, AND A PALE OLD MAN LOOKED AT HER FOR A LONG TIME BEFORE HE SAID, “DON’T JUST STAND THERE, COME IN.” INSIDE THE CABIN, ROSE STOOD IN DISBELIEF.—-www.collmannwarehouse.com

WELCOME TO MY WORLD: YOU KNOW YOUR GETTING OLD WHEN YOU GET DOWN ON THE FLOOR TO SCRUB AND CAN’T GET UP!

QUOTE OF THE DAY: ENJOY WHAT YOU ENJOY!–BOOK 3–“ROSE’S HEART’S DECISION”–CHAPTER 43–The front door of the hospital suddenly opened up. Toby stepped out into the sun. He looked at Rose and every step was directly toward her. Rose thought she could hear her heart beating. She hoped Henry could not. Henry was watching closely. Toby reached up and swiftly put his hands around Rose while lifting her small body up and out of her saddle. Standing close to Henry’s leg with his arms around Rose said, “Rose, honey, your hospital is done. Now I am ready to build your Library.” Henry did not move. He sat with his jaw locked in determination. This time he was not leaving. He was in love with Rose.—-www.collmannwarehouse.com—–The Luban girls, Morrison and Gennings came today and brought a picnic lunch in their lunch pails. I put a blanket on the floor in front of the T.V. and they watched GUBO while eating. A picnic was enjoyed by everyone. A prefect ending was a ice cream cone.

WELCOME TO MY WORLD: PROUD TO BRING YOU “THE ROSE DONLIN SERIES”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: NEVER GIVE UP YOUR DREAM!–4 YEAR OLD GENNINGS CAME TO THE CONDO ON TUESDAY WHILE MELONIE WENT TO SCHOOL TO PICK UP MORRISON. I GREETED GENNINGS AND SAID, “IS EVERYTHING GOING WELL?” AND SHE REPLIED, “YES INDEED.”—–BOOK 6–CHAPTER 11–“ROSE’S NIGHTMARE RETURNS”–THE KNOCK ON THE FRONT DOOR TOOK ROSE’S MIND OFF OF PAUL. SHE OPENED THE FRONT DOOR TO FIND MARY STANDING THERE LOOKING WORRIED. HER EYES WERE RED AND HER HAIR NOT COMBED. MARY SPOKE FIRST, “HANK IS SICK AND I THINK I NEED TO PUT HIM IN THE HOSPITAL. ROSE CLOSED THE DOOR NEEDING TO LEAN ON IT. NO ONE KNEW ABOUT HANK BUT SHE AND BLUE SKY. NOTHING BAD COULD BE WRONG WITH HANK. IF HANK WAS SICK WITH SOMETHING THAT NEEDED HIS REAL FAMILIE’S MEDICAL PAST, THIS WOULD UNRAVEL A HIDDEN SECRET THAT ROSE HOPED SHE COULD KEEP FOR A VERY LONG, LONG TIME. NOW SHE FELT DOUBT. http://www.collmannwarehouseware.com——http://www.facebook.com/collmannwarehouse
