A frustrating couple of weeks

been around here. The computer has had three operations, and if this one doesn't hold, I may have to take an axe to it.

We went to Houston to George's 68th (I think) high school class reunion. Very nice people, nice Racquet Club and a good lunch. We stayed with the Barnes (great hosts, y'all) and will do so again when we go back for Aunt Betty's 90th birthday party. All this running up and down the road has to stop pretty soon. Dean and Barbara let me sleep on the sofa downstairs so I didn't have to face the stairs. I managed to trash the room, but I left it clean. I am just basically a bag lady. I carry many, use few but am greatly comforted to have all my 'stuff' with me. The Barnes set up their computer so that we could see and hear Susan and Lucy. What a joy! Susan plans to spend some time in Houston this summer and for this there will definitely be another trip there. Can't wait to see Lucy!

Did I tell you Mally (granddaughter) won silver for second place in the state science fair? She is a 6th grader, and we are really proud of her - and of the other kids, too. The Scotts have moved back to town and their kitchen is almost all set up. The new additions and remodeling are just amazing. Gorgeous and useful as well. We are going out there for lunch on Sunday. Yeaaaaa.

Today I taught my first Bible study in Mertzon. Not well attended, but even one is worth teaching for. We are doing the 10 commandmants. I tucked that in after tutoring Nancys children. This is so very rewarding. She has four and we are reading, analyzing and using proper expressions. One has even learned what a question mark means. Hallelujah! We are under a tornado watch tonight but are not sleeping in the bathtub, God be praised. Dad always insists we will go there for this kind of weather. So far it isn't even blowing , so no bathtubs tonight.

Sarah will be here tomorrow to do lots of helping me - and I really need it, it seems. She is going to make King Ranch Chicken and freeze some of that for us. Yum.

Seeing lots of doctors these days. We have several symptoms for which a reason must be determined. I keep telling the doctors I have plans made for the next 12 years, so get busy and make me well. My doctor says I am like a leaky boat - as soon as he plugs one leak, I spring another. At least we have an interesting life.

Deo gratia...
