Happy Anniversary to my Beloved

Spending time at the Bar LL and Lutheran Ladies' Academy was wonderful, but I did miss out on something special. While I was gone, the date for our 28th wedding anniversary passed. We have been together on all but three anniversaries. In 1993, I was in Lithuania. Last summer, John was in Seattle. And this summer, I was in Glenrock, WY. It wasn't as special as it could have been, but I did enjoy being there. Wish John could have come along...Alas, vacation time is scarce since he started working for a new company last year. VERY scarce; he went from 7 to 2 weeks.

In a couple of weeks, we'll be traveling again. Mary and I will head to Texas to see Ethan graduate from Combat Medic school. We'll go by way of Ft. Sill, so we can see Matthew and Keri. We'll also visit her very good friends (and mine!) in Corpus Christi. There will be plenty of fun had, and plenty of pictures to share. And John will use his very last vacation day to fly down and see the boy graduate. More on that later!

Thanks so much for reading. I really like having a place to spout off, and it helps to spout off to an audience. I've been honing my photography skills (Honey, I need a new camera!) and writing skills (always room for improvement!) and "spreading the love," as they say.

Who are They anyway? Does anyone know?

Melody,

I love your stories. One thing nice about "they" is that "they" is whomever (or is it whoever) you want it to be.

Glad the family will be at the Combat Medic graduation. It will be so special.
