Quote of the Day

"Miss Gould was looking her best in a crisp lavender dimity, upon whose frills Mrs. Waters had bestowed the grateful exercise of her highest art. Her sleek, dark coils of hair, from which no one stray lock escaped, framed her fresh cheeks most admirably; her strong white hands appeared and disappeared with an absolute regularity through the dark-green wool out of which she was evolving a hideous and useful shawl."

(A Philanthropist, by Josephine Daskam Bacon)

That's funny!

My dad was a Naval Aviator, and he told a favorite joke:

Q: "What is the difference between Naval Aviators and Air Force pilots?"

A: "Naval Aviators break ground anf fly into the wind; Air Force pilots break wind and fly into the ground."

Just thought I'd share that. I will be praying for your son. God bless you!

He's my nephew but the son of my favorite bro and my absolutely favorite sister in law.

He and his younger brother both decided they would get their college educations from Uncle Sugar.

We're proud of them but also a bit on edge, as you may imagine. Thanks for your good wishes; we pray for him too.
