You crack me up….of course you aren’t the only one that saves and listens to the voice mail messages. I do it daily…sometimes more than once if it’s a tough day. I am wearing one of his old hickory shirts and levis right now…standard weekend farm wear for me…my family gets kind of sick of it Winking smiley emotion. Last week when I wore one of his fire t-shirts to run in to the feed mill the clerk asked if I was a firefighter….had to laugh at that one. We all do the things that comfort us when we’re apart….like checking in on Family Said daily…well OK, more than daily, I admit it.

I had terrible news about our upcoming trip to the Grand Canyon in 3 weeks….they CANCELED the mule rides to do trail maintenance! I am so bummed. We may have to substitute a raft trip instead, but it will not be the same. And just think I had read 131 pages of “Brighty of the Grand Canyon” on Friday getting ready for our adventure.

I celebrated my birthday yesterday with the company of good friends and family and am heading out dancing tonight. It’s a glorious Indian summer day here in Oregon and I’m painting windows for our barn.
