Hey vets

Need prayers for friend James he is patient at nursing home my mother is in. Need prayers over James medical concerns , James is tropical lightning trooper 25th ID Vietnam. I have known him now maybe a year and half fine gentleman, he makes me smile he showed for chili I made for my mother and her roommates and I plan for it the six p's from infantry, as I make a huge batch chili and cornbread. James showed up for chow in his tropical lighting ball cap and t shirt. Talking to James he filled me in he is in a fight now he still gets around, but prayers are needed,we were gonna play parcheesi but ended up playing spades he was my partner. What does that say about me when my own mother picks her roommate as her partner in spades instead of her kid , does not look good.

2. I think playing spades is one of the most important things I learned from the army

Being able to play spades comes in handy all the time for me. Admittedly, it's mostly with other veterans that this is handy with but it's a good way to meet and make friends.

3. Thanks for taking a batch of chili to the geezers.

It probably makes their day to have someone think of them. Your chili might be pretty good too. As to your mother picking her room mate for a partner instead of you. She just wants to win, and maybe her room mate is a better player. Can't blame her. She is a smart lady.
