A Sad Day

We attended the funeral of a good church friend today. He was only 49 and died of a heart attack. It was very sad.

Fall is definitely in the air and tomorrow we'll do some fall clean-up around our house. My peonies need to be cut down as well as most of my other plants. The leaves are falling so raking will soon come into the picture.

Our weather has been crazy lately. It's cold, it's hot, it just can't make up it's mind! We wear sweatshirts in the morning and peel them off by noon. At least we don't need the air conditioner and can keep our windows open.

I'll leave with a quote from Ward Cleaver who, if you are old enough, is Leave it to Beaver Cleaver's father.--

"Family's one place where you're always wanted."

Remembering 9-11

Where were you on 9-11? I was in Norwich England on the campus of the University of East Anglia. I was in another country and I knew that I would have to fly to get back home. It's very frightening to see your buildings being demolished. BBC TV had very good coverage and we watched intently for several days. Thankfully things had settled down a bit by the time we flew back to the good old USA. I got off the plane in Minneapolis singing "God Bless America" and rejoiced that I was back home safely.

Remember all those that have given their lives to keep us free. Remember all those that are still out there fighting for our freedom. Pray that we all stay strong and support our troops!

Thought for the day:
Why is it that our children can't read a Bible in school, but they can in prison?

Rockin' with TED NUGENT!!!!!!!

It's been a pretty quiet week until tonight! Ted Nugent was in SD! His music is LOUD and my ears are still ringing! I don't care for his music but I LOVE his politics! He recognized Governor Mike Rounds and Senator John Thune. He sent his best wishes and prayers to Tim Johnson. Then he said, "Tom Daschle, kiss my ass!" He is a definite Republican and conservative and I like that. He recognized all the military personnel and played "The Star Spangled Banner". It was loud, it was noisy and it was right-wing. Enough said.

This is the day that the Lord has made.
We should be glad and rejoice in it.
