I got to witness today what an amazing church we belong to. We had 600 volunteers from the church come and help beautify the park where we work. It was amazing to see them jump and work at all kinds of jobs. They painted curbs and buildings, they planted flowers, picked up trash, planted trees, painted barbeques and so many other things. It was very well organized by both the church committee and the park superintendent. She was so amazed at what they did that it almost brought her to tears. I was proud to be a member of the church and see what a great church I belong to. It was a tremendous showing of community pride.

Wayne and I were in charge of the information table and it was so fun to hear such nice comments by people from all over, even those from Los Angeles. It was a fun day.

When people say that radiation isn't so bad must not be as old as grandpa. It has been a really rough last 4 weeks but we are down to the last 2 weeks and I must say he is glad. He really looks forward to the weekends when he doesn't have to go for a treatment.

He just gets feeling good and it is time to go for another treatment. It is the afterwards that is so bad. He sure is looking forward to the end and getting to start recovery again. Hopefully life will be good again.

Other than that life goes on and we are staying busier than we want to be with work at the lake.
Somedays we meet ourselves coming and going. Today was one of those days. I had to be at work at 4:30 a.m. Worked nine hours today and get to go back for more fun tomorrow. At least it will be slightly later. The weather here today makes it worth it. It is in the upper 80's and is to be 90 tomorrow. Then back to the below normal temps. Ah, the joys of living in CA.
