In response to daily post’s one-word prompt : Hospitality
I miss our dear friend whom we addressed as, ‘Auntie Jean,’ she was not a relation but treated us, my husband and children better than a relative.
We stayed with her and Uncle Harold several times, for at least a week, each time we visited her. She was warm, friendly and received us with open arms.
Her generosity and kindness towards us was exceptional, she had everything planned what we’d have for breakfast, lunch and dinner, when we stayed with her.
She met my husband at one, ‘Thanksgiving,’ and continued her generosity for a very long time. She was 94 when she passed away. I miss her, I have not found another good soul like her.

Mutua Madrid Tennis Championship Final
Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem are in the Final of the Mutua Madrid Tennis Championship. Today is the day of the final match.
Nadal is a Spaniard and Thiem is an Austrian. Both have won all the matches leading to the final. Thiem is a young Austrian who comes dressed as a warrior who believes he can beat the Spaniard. Nadal will have the whole country behind him, because it is Spanish championship. Thiem will only have his family and his team rooting for him.
It depends on whose nerve is solid, however, Nadal has the experience and the nerve to win it . Thiem can only rely on his luck.
I hope the match is competitive, and not one sided, it will give the spectators their money’s worth, for I’m sure they’ve spent a huge amount.
I on the other hand will watch it on TV in my room. I’d be happy if Thiem wins but it seems to be a long shot!
