Zap Finale

There was some waiting involved in today's treatment, but now I am done for good and planning my retreat into the wilderness, never to visit a health care facility again! Ha ha! I would like to thank Dr. Oh, nurses Candy and Trish, and all seven members of the radiation staff who did the actual zapping each day.

I expect it will take a while for me to get back to "normal", but that will give us the time to plan the trips I discussed some time ago. Designated coordinators, start your planning... Now!

My Reunion Story

I think you guys might enjoy this little gem from our Easter gathering just passed...

I was sitting outside on one of the picnic table benches after eating when the call to egg picking was issued. Naturally, all the kids came running inside from the sandbox and blacktop. Connor Wilson was no exception, but he had to make a pit stop next to me to pick up his shoes and socks first.

It turns out he's pretty proficient with the shoe and sock donning process. I gave him a hand with one shoe that was a little too tight for him to pull on by himself, but he handled everything else on his own while chattering on about how great egg picking was going to be, and how he hoped everyone wouldn't start without him.

I bet nobody would have even noticed if he had come in barefoot given the flurry of egg picking activity at the time, but Connor knew that he had to get his house in order, so to speak, before moving onto the next activity. Cute and responsible!

Easter Gathering

As usual, the family reunion was a great success, thanks to great company and Mike's hosting. It was great to see all of you guys as usual. Hopefully I'll see some of you soon for the aquarium trip, too. Happy Easter everyone.

Happy Easter

I know that my Redeemer liveth, and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth. For now is Christ risen from the dead, the first-fruits of them that sleep.

Job 19:25, I Corinthians 15:20

Happy almost-Easter everyone. I'm going to do something I should have done a long time ago on this site and provide an Easter wallpaper image for you to use if you so choose. To apply it to your desktop, first click the link above, then right click on the resulting image and select Set as background from the menu. Depending on the browser you use, this could instead read Set as wallpaper or something else with a similar connotation. If the image appears too large or small for your screen, send me a comment and I'll add more instructions.

On a related note, I have a tough decision to make this year on account of my ongoing health situation. Do I kick my butt and go to my church's Easter service in the morning, or do I get myself to the family gathering in the afternoon? I really don't see how I can manage both. My thought is to read the scripture on my own and get to the reunion, but I welcome your input on this matter. If you have other ideas, I'm happy to entertain those as well.
