Please pray for my wonderful Aunt Marian. She is very ill and all our prayers are desperately needed. She and Uncle Harold celebrated their 50th anniversary just a few months ago in May and I, for one, would like for them to have many more years together.

I’ll be scanning some more of some photos I found recently over the coming days and will likely embarrass many people, myself included. Keep your heads down!

We are experiencing Techinical Difficulties!!!
