Sarah takes care of Jerry

Sarah has that thing that furry people have. 
They stay close to those who are hurting. It's so cute and heartwarming to see Sarah like this. She does a really good job. 
Like this---

Daddy's lap is a very, very good lap

Sarah and her daddy!!
She sleeps a really long time on his lap. She sleeps a really long time on the floor. 
And she sleeps cuddled in the covers on the bed. Right next to me. It relaxes me to be able run my hand down her curled up warm body. I do a lot of praying that way. 

But Daddy's lap is best of all!!

Onions and Sweet potatoes

We don't have a garden anymore. After three years of no veggies because of the heat we quit. Between the heat and no rain and the deer, gardens became a thing of the past. We let it cover over with grass.

This year I bought some onions and planted in pots. Lots of green on the front porch. Well, I had a sweet potato that was sprouting in the kitchen counter and now this is what we have on the porch

My cousin came to see us. ALL the way from Maryland!! Sometimes I'm just speechless. Believe that? Well when Kenneth texted me about wanting to come-I was speechless. 

I remember when Facebook first got on the Internet. It was back in 2004. 

Internet had been around for 10 years or so. We were in Farmington New Mexico. I was in my last year of college, Jerry was working at the very least 100 hours a week. So when I found Facebook I went looking for friends on Facebook. 


That's who I'll look for. 

I had been in touch with Kenneth Kretsinger before but lost touch when we moved to Farmington. 

I'll try to find Kenneth I said to myself. And I did. 25 of them. WITH the name Kenneth Kretsinger!!!!

I started scrolling down. Not many photos. Yuck!! Kept on scrolling. 

Past a photo. 

Scrolled back. 

This one looked a lot like Our Dave. 
This is Our Dave

This is Kenneth. 

The one in the black shirt is Cousin Kenneth. Both look a lot like my dad. 

Well, Kenneth is back in Maryland getting ready to go to the beach for a week with May and kids. 

We had a good time.
