Aldrin and Tata (Married couple) – Our full time helpers

I wanted to share this nice picture of Tata and Aldrin that was taken at a wedding they attended yesterday. I captured it from Facebook.

Tata and Aldrin have been with us for 15 years.  Aldrin takes care of the outside cleaning and maintenance. Tata’s primary duty is taking care of Bernadette. She also helps with all the other house hold chores and cleaning too. Both Tata and Aldrin are super clean and super neat. Everything is in its place. Aldrin is very good with painting and repairs too. They are a super friendly well liked couple of good character. Next to me, without a shadow of a doubt, Tata is the closest human being to Bernadette. Both Tata and Aldrin know us and our moves very well.

Besides Aldrin and Tata, we have two other helpers too, Mirasol and Marites. Mirasol’s hours are from 8 to 5 and Marites’ hours are from 4 to 9 PM. Mirasol does the house hold cleaning and chores. She also assists Tata with taking care Bernadette. Marites’ sole job is to be with and take care of Bernadette. From 9 PM to 8 AM each and every day are my duty hours.

Gary and Friends,

I will post this last section of the story and study of the Vikings possible travel to the area. For those who would like to read the entire book, I think it can be bought through the Spectrum office supply store on Main in Bottineau or probably from the bookstore on the Dakota College-Bottineau (School of Forestry) campus. There are many more technical articles and descriptions that may not be of interest to the entire readership here on the blog. It is interesting to those of us with the defective history gene that makes us ponder these ancient things. Thanks Gary!
