This blog is doing funny things but here goes.  Adrich is on the left and I did not feel like that today.  Cynthia takes care of him.  Leo is on the right and I felt like that today!!
I got my walk in, got a short bike ride in, mowed the lawn and put some week killer on it, made a flyer for our Servant Camp fund raiser and delivered it to our office and had a nice chat with Larry B. 
Here are some things I have had on my mind.  They are not real sad, not real wonderful nor are they profound, just me 7+ months after Gail left us and thinking about what is next.
  • My days are often filled with things that I never did in the past
  • My memories are of Gail but my thoughts are towards the future
  • I often think like Leo looks!
  • I am so thankful for family
  • I know grandkids are the grandest thing in the world
  • I understand why Jesus was a woodworker
  • I know why greving people often make bad decisions
  • Things can be expensive, friendships are priceless
  • Memories can be both happy thoughts and building blocks
  • New friends are fun, old friends are indispensable
  • A house can be a place to live without being a home
  • Children are a most precious commodity
  • Time spent with family is worth a million dollars
  • Dirty dishes have a way of cloning themselves
  • One person can make as much mess as two
  • BUT, two people are better than one
  • Eating alone is like kissing someone with bad breath.  It may be necessary at times but it is not fun
  • Cooking for only yourself is like planning a party and nobody shows up
  • Early to bed and early to rise makes a man, well lonesome early!!
  • I think of Servant Camp a lot.  I hope many people come.  I hope grandchildren, friends and neighbors go to http://www.servantcamp.org and register for camp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
