It has been a stimulating week for me. I actually think I am on information overload! The science and math course I’m taking at Howard Payne is teaching me bundles of new things. Although my brain is not yet at the one fact at a time phase, it definitely is bogging down with this multiple stimuli process. I have learned how to work an iPad, load all kinds of programs and use them. The most frustrating part to me is the one I don’t seem to have mastered, and that is the posting of information on face book. I keep losing my work in cyber space. I will conquer this, but I may have to get my granddaughter to help me out! I have about 42 apps downloaded to this contraption. By the time my three weeks is up, I’m supposed to know how they all work and be able to teach them to my students. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.I have to send out a thank you shout to Mr. David Leonard of Fort Worth. He sent me a short note advising me on one solution for keeping guineas alive around snakes and hawks. At least I believe that‘s what it is. He said to hang an owl up and it would work. My next question would be if I hang up a plastic owl, would it also keep other owls away? I haven’t bought any birds yet because of Glen. I suspect snakes would be the last of my problems if Glen were here. That issue is also up in the air.The reason I say that is because I received an email last week, and to my horror Glen was eliminated from the MWD program. I immediately contacted the office and asked why and how. At that point they couldn’t tell me very much. He will be posted for adoption to law enforcement agencies around the country for a period of time. If he has not been adopted by some mysterious date, then they will contact me and see if I want to adopt him. I can’t imagine leaving him in a kennel forever or having him go to a home that won’t love him enough. It really is difficult. I was resigned to his becoming a soldier because he would be protecting young men like my son. I’m not resigned to his being in a kennel for however many months they have to keep them. Russ is hoping he will be adopted. It’s not that he didn’t like him; it’s just that he was a handful and more to entertain and control. I guess it’s up to God to find him a good home or bring him back here.Speaking of home, I will be headed to Canada at the end of July so I guess you’ll be getting a few foreign editions while I’m gone. My sister Dee and her husband Dave live in the Thousand Islands area. Their reception is not very good, so it could get tricky! On that theme, I received a call from Ruthie it seems Denim went to Canada when I wasn’t looking. Since she is not in the book I have to do a little searching to get the rest of the scoop. I’ll fill you in once I speak to her. So, I tracked down Bobbie, he was mowing around the shop, and he told me to call Chris’ number, so now I have the scoop. Denim drove with Coach Chesley to Vigger, Saskatchewan in Canada to play in the Can Am 6 man football game. The Can Am features the best players in 6 man football. The American team won for the 4th year in a row. It was a close game, 50-46. Denim was chosen as the Outstanding Offensive Player of the game. We call them MVP of the game here. The games have been played for the last 16 years. I tip my hat to Denim, the coach, and the other players who represented our country so well. Denim is presently in Lubbock getting ready to play the all Star Game. We wish him all the best at the game and in his future, whatever it may hold.The wind has picked up and is throwing stuff all around the yard. I’m hoping and praying it will start to throw a round some much needed rain as well. We had .7 inches of rain last week. Our neighbors had over an inch. Every drop is precious and desperately needed. I guess we need to add Oklahoma to our list. It seems that long dry spell we had last year is happening to them. Our grass is still not growing properly. Russ reseeded the side yard and is nurturing it back to life, but the rest of the pasture is in sad shape. I’m thankful for the rain we have received, but greedy and selfish enough to want more. Sorry God, we are just pitiful creatures!We have several folks extremely sick with cancer that need our prayers. Our prayers are extended to Clara Wash’s family. The funeral for Clara was held on Saturday. A fund has been set up for Charlie Capps to help with his medical expenses in Houston. Curtis Smith was given a skin graft and they are waiting to see if it will take before they continue his treatments. H.B. Adams is scheduled for another surgery on his neck. Carol Bryant sent her mom home to be with the Lord. It is always exceptionally hard to lose your mom. Please keep her in your prayers. Melissa Evans is recovering from shoulder surgery. We need to hold the youth camp kids and Brother Barry up for special prayer. I sincerely hope the move of God will sweep over our young people and get them all on the right path.May God continue to bless America.
