The weather has been pretty crazy...and we are in desperate need of rain! Wild fires across the state - but fortunately nothing close to us. If you remember, Rich finished painting the boathouse several weeks ago. Well - since then the water level has really dropped.... about a foot! Today Rich got the paint can back out an painted the bottom of the supports on the dock - that is now "above" the water level.
In the meantime I got the broom and the hose and cleaned the front porch! And then, pulled weeds, trimmed and fertilized (liquid miracle grow) all the pineapple plants We have three pineapple starting along the side of the house, and the two in back are starting to bud. Within the next week or so, we'll plant another that's been rooting inside.
This past weekend was our granddaughter's Senior Prom. Below are some pictures that our son Dennis took...........and who managed to get his face in one of them! Can't believe it - she is such a beautiful young lady........Chauna and Ryan with a few of their friends on prom night!!
Looking forward to attending her graduation, meeting Ryan and Sara (Dalton's girlfriend) and spending time with the family before we head to NY.
Not hard to tell we getting older............. our friend Krystal is doing much better, FINALLY. She back to tending her horses and improving more and more every day. Planning dinner and show with them next month to see a tribute to Barry Manilow.
In the meantime we got some sad news from our good friend Buddy, about his wife Dianne. So sad! Please pray for her. Here's the message we received from Buddy...........
IN 2013 DIANNE WAS TOLD SHE HAD ORTHO STATIC MYCLONIS. THAT IS A SLOW ATROPHY OF THE BRAIN.
WE WENT TO THE MAYO CLINIC THURSDAY AND FRIDAY FOR MORE TESTS. THOSE TESTS SHOWED THAT SHE DID NOT HAVE WHAT THEY THOUGHT. SHE HAS MULTIPLE SYSTEM ATROPHY. THAT MEANS THAT NOT ONLY HER BRAIN BUT HER ENTIRE BODY IS IN ATROPHY. THE AVERAGE LIFE EXPECTANCY FOR SOMEONE WITH THIS DISEASE IS 10 YEARS FROM WHEN IT WAS DIAGNOSED. SHE HAS ALREADY LOST HER ABILITY TO WALK, TO SPEAK CLEARLY, TO SING AND TO PLAY HER GUITAR. WE NEED YOUR PRAYERS.
