Zachary's Birthday Today



Zachary celebrates his 7th birthday today. He's having a little party with some of his school friends today. The Grandparents party with Zachary will be tomorrow night after supper.

Zachary is a fine young man. He is a Cub Scout. He also plays sports. This past year he played in a T-ball League, and Upward Bound Basketball league. This baseball season he will be playing in a league where they use a pitching machine. Here's a picture of Zachary with his Dad that was taken last month. I'll try to have a good birthday picture of him in this blog soon.

Big Event
Tonight we have Jade's graduation from high school and a celebration meal afterwards. David Goss, her English teacher in Vietnam, is in the states at the present time. So we invited him to our home for a visit and he plans to attend her graduation.

The Quote Above is Good Advice

I remember when Sam McC. told us at a special meeting one time, that it took 3 things to make a good speech: A good beginning, a good ending, and keep'em close together! That was good advice, too.

Joke of the Day
An old, tired-looking dog wandered into the yard. I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home.

He followed me into the house, down the hall, and fell asleep on the couch. An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out. The next day he was back, resumed his position on the couch and slept for an hour. This continued for several weeks. Curious, I pinned a note to his collar: 'Every afternoon your dog comes to my house for a nap.'

The next day he arrived with a different note pinned to his collar: "He lives in a home with four children -- he's trying to catch up on his sleep. Can I come with him tomorrow?"

Zachary is such a cute little boy. Hope he had a great birthday. My boy will be celebrating his 4th birthday next week so we are also making preparations for the party. We are moving houses next month and most of our stuffs are boxed and packed. So we will be hosting the party at the nearby San Francisco venues.
