Rain, rain, go away.  Come again another day.  It’s raining,
it’s pouring, the old man is snoring.  The rhymes could go on and
on, but you get the idea, don’t you?  We’ve needed the rain badly,
but it would be nice to have some dry air for a day or two. 
We celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary last night.  While we
had planned to celebrate by ourselves, we opted to spend the evening
helping a friend celebrate his 40th birthday.  The theme was
“Survivor.”  My tribe was the orange tribe, Bernie’s was the
blue/turquoise tribe.  Our tribe won.  Here are some

We had a great time…Happy 40th, Greg!
Are you wondering about Felix, Liza, and Sandie?  Sandie and Felix
get along very well, but Liza and Felix…that’s another story.

Sandie and Felix napping together on the couch…can you see Felix behind Sandie? 

Liza has tried to take over Felix’s kitty condo…I’ll give you one
guess what happens when Felix tries to look in the cubby hole…grrr!

Chip is at Andrew’s…Austin is here with Parker…Wednesday, I’m going
to pick up my mom and bring her here for the rest of the week…she’s
going to celebrate with us that she’s turning 70…isn’t that
amazing?  We’re all so excited that she’s coming!  The Beth
Moore study is going well…the crowd is smaller than I had hoped, but
I trust God to bring the women who need to be there.
