FRIDAY JULY 29, 2005

12:00 PM HELLO EVERYONE. ARE YOU WONDERING WHERE I HAVE BEEN? WE WENT ON VACATION
ON JULY 23. OUR DAUGHTER AND GRAND DAUGHTER CAME IN FRIDAY NIGHT AND WE
LEFT EARLY SAT MORNING. WE WENT TO ST.LOUIS FIRST TO SEE SOME FRIENDS OF
MINE. THEY USED TO LIVE ACROSS THE STREET FROM ME WHEN I WAS A LITTLE
KID IN IOWA. WE HAD A REAL GOOD TIME WITH THEM. THEN WE LEFT AFTER A FEW
HOURS WITH THEM AND WENT TO BRANSON, MO IN THE OZARKS. WHAT A GREAT PLACE
TO GO. THIS WAS OUR 7TH TIME THERE IN THE LAST 13 YEARS. FIRST FOR MARGO
AND ALI. BUT I MUST SAY THE TEMP WAS 100 DEGREES FOR THE FIRST 3 DAYS.
THEN ON WED IT WAS 75 AND SOME RAIN. ITS JUST GREAT TO SEE THE WONDERS
OF THE BEAUTY THAT GOD HAS GIVEN US TO LOOK AT. WE ENJOYED SOME SHOWS
AND SOME GOOD FOOD. EVERYONE THERE WAS REAL NICE. ALI IS SO SHORT SO WE
DIDN'T GO TO SILVER DOLLAR CITY THIS TIME. THERE ARE NO RIDES FOR HER
HEIGHT TO GO ON. BUT WE FOUND A LOT OF RIDES AT A KIDDIE LAND FOR HER
TO RIDE ON. SHE LIKED THE SWIMMING POOL MORE THAN ANYTHING. YOU COULDN'T
GET HERE OUT OF THE POOL. SHE ALSO ENJOYED STAYING UP LATE WITH THE GROWN
UPS. WE WENT TO THE DIXIE STAMPEDE SHOW AND DINNER. DOLLY PARTON OWNS
IT. IT WAS GREAT. YOU HAVE TO EAT YOUR MEAL WITHOUT ANY KNIFE, FORK AND
SPOON. JUST USE YOUR GOOD OLD FINGERS. IT WAS ABOUT 2 HOURS LONG AND
WORTH IT. WE MEET A FAMILY THAT GAILS HAS THEIR DAUGHTER IN HER DAY CARE.
WE ALL SAT TOGETHER. HAD A REAL GREAT TIME. WE MOST OF ALL THANK THE LORD
FOR A SAFE TRIP TO/FROM AND NOTHING HAPPENING TO THE VAN. THE CHEAPEST
GAS WAS $ 1.98 IN OZARK, MO, OTHER THAN THAT IT WAS AROUND $ 2.06 PER
GALLON. BOY, ARE WE GETTING THE SHAFT UP HERE. WELL, I BETTER CLOSE FOR
NOW AND DO SOME WEED PULLING. IF ANYONE WOULD LIKE TO COME OVER AND HELP
ME OUT THAT WOULD BE GREAT. WE HAVE A LOT OF COLD POP AND WATER. TAKE
CARE.


12:20 PM SHOUT OUT TO WAYNE/CATHERIN, BOB/JUDY, GREG BLACK, DAVE/JUDY AND THE
STAFF AT CALVARY.
