Today is Kader’s twenty-first birthday. I managed to get tickets to a play so that we could take her tonight. First, at Merih’s invitation, we took her to dinner in the bar at Sister Bay Bowl. That’s where he works and he wanted to serve us. We sat facing the bowling alley and enjoyed watching people of all ages play.
One more update on my friends in Louisiana… Betty sends her thanks for all the prayers that went up for them after I posted about her and Mike. She says that while others are saying the weathermen were wrong, she prefers to believe that God answered our prayers and hers.
Speaking of storms, we went through a doozy today.
Last week, when we went to pick Merih up from the place he is staying, we noticed he was talking with a beautiful young woman outside his room. At the Bridges event last night, he introduced her to us. Her name is Kader (pronounced Keh-DAHR) Sirtikara. Continue reading
I mentioned before that Mark and I are Bridges parents to Merih Bayirli. When we dropped him off at his place last week after the play, he asked if we’d be at the Bridges event this week. He seemed to want us there, so Mark and I went. Continue reading
As of today, we have finally entered summer. You may be thinking I’m off by a few days, but what I mean is that today we finally hit temperatures in the mid-70s. Looking at the future forecast, it would appear that it will be in the 70s and 80s for the foreseeable future! Continue reading

I rode to the third stop light again this morning, and though my legs felt a little loose, I was doing slightly better than yesterday. Thank you all for your encouragement! Continue reading
We spent a long, hard day driving today. We had hoped to be able to make it to Blythe, CA on the border with Arizona, but by the time we got to Palm Springs, we were just glad to be able to find a place to stay! Continue reading
Well, we had aimed for getting out of here tomorrow, but it ain’t happening. Besides the fact that we still have a lot to do to get ready, Mark can’t find the keys to the RV ignition, so he had to call a locksmith. The locksmith is down in Green Bay and won’t be able to come up until tomorrow.
Because the fall colors have been so glorious, I was carrying my camera with me to work and to church in case I should see something I had to shoot. Last Sunday, I was driving home from church with my camera on the front seat beside me. I suddenly had to step on the brake and the camera fell off the seat. The next picture I tried to take, the lens wouldn’t focus. 🙁 I have seen all sorts of things since that I would have loved to photograph and share with you, but I can’t. Therefore, I haven’t written.
