Deja Vu all over again

Hi everyone,

Not much going on with all of this. Still getting the medical news that all seems to be good. No real reason for concern at present. So we wait. When you have cancer in the immediate family, there isn't a day that goes by without some thought about it.

We are enjoying the beautiful weather today. Deb and I took our coffee/tea out to the patio and along with Strider the Wonder Dog to watch the birdies and bugs.

The aroma of fresh baked cookies fills our home, as Deb obeys some inner domestic wiring diagram that forces her to make food. Isn't it wonderful? Salads have been on our menu more lately. We are trying to eat better, and summer brings all the good things from the earth. This morning we had raspberries and melon with a sprinkling of blueberries. Last night we enjoyed some watermelon. Soon it will be corn on the cob. We had a lot of asparagus and strawberries until the season ended.

Time rushes by in our lives. We work and we rest.

I had a good conversation with mom just now. We will see her in two weeks, just after her 89Th birthday. She has a new medical issue with her bladder. We pray that she will improve with the medication.

Please continue to pray for Marge as she struggles with the loss of Dan. Losing a mate is something half of us will experience. Like cancer, until you do, it can't really make sense to you or me. Sam is still battling cancer, as is Kathy Adler and Eric. Remember Barb's brother John as he recovers from his motorcycle accident and Uncle John Leverance as he struggles with age and health. Please pray also for my mom and for Deb.

We feel every prayer and blessing that comes to us because of each of you. Your support means all the world to us. God is always listening.

God bless one and all,

Dan
