Before I get into the excitement of the day, I must ask you to pray for very special people:  a little girl named Katie who is having problems at home, a lady named Pat who is struggling with the loss of an adult child, a family whose daughter, Natalee, has disappeared while on vacation in Aruba.  My heart is aching for all of these people. 

Felix is here!  He is so so cute, too!  We are all loving having him here, with the exception of Liza, and possibly Sandie.  At least Sandie has only looked closely.  Liza has howled this awful howl—this is only day one.  Here are some photos…

The two come face to face, and even nose to nose!

Felix (Actually, Felix, Jr.), 6 weeks old, in all his cuteness!

Sandie, a Golden Retriever with her summer “do”—-she is very regal looking, and acts like a puppy!

My friend Sarah came to see me today, as did Audrey.  We had a wonderful visit—it’s hard for me to believe that Sarah will be a junior in college this fall.  Audrey, on the other hand, is only six months old.  But she is the sweetest and funniest thing to play with and talk to.  Such joy–thank you, Jesus!

David and Garrett are here tonight…I caught them watching a movie—Parker was still in a chair, but they were ready to hit the hay, I’m pretty sure.  Having friends over is always fun!

    Hey there…….sorry I haven’t stopped by in a while. I love your kitty…..reminds me of one we had years ago. Her name was Spooky and she disappeared for 9 mo. and we figured she was dead. Then one day, she just ran back in the back door. That is one time that I really wished she could have talked so we could find our about her adventures.
