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?"
