Wednesday, February 13th, 2019


Another Hale boy in the “boy baptismal gown.” Mercy was very concerned that he would be wearing a gown. I assured her this was one time in a boys life that it would be appropriate.

This Summer our congregation called a young man to fill the role of Kantor for our church. He accepted that call and since then I have enjoyed getting to know his lovely wife. They are awaiting the birth of their 3rd child due this month so another kind lady in our congregation and I put together a diaper shower for them. We had fun with the Wintery inspiration of a Winter baby shower. We kept it simple with a delicious hot chocolate bar and some snacks.

Summer Vacation – Colorado Day 4 Part III

And this is my dear friend Brenda. You might recognize her from my epic and moving “Love Story.” I was trying to think of how long Brenda and I have been friends and just where our friendship began.

She and I grew up in the same church so we’d known each other in our teens but didn’t start a real deal friendship until after high school. You know you have a good friend when you can not remember at all the first time you clicked and the rest became history. I just know that Brenda and I were pretty much attached at the hip for a solid 10 years, the entirety of my 20s.

We’ve been through thick and thin together and then some. So this day was a little like Peaches and Herb and a lot like pie.


I’ll let you decide which of us is Peaches and which is Herb. Maybe this picture will help:
