Mrs74 Update: The home care nurse was at our home today to remove the staples from the incision. She said that the healing was looking good. I also got Kathy out of the house a couple of times this weekend, one being a trip to the Evil Big Box Store(tm). Tomorrow we plan on going to her parents house for a Labor Day get together.
Watching the weather: Weather's fine here in Ohio, but all eyes are on the Gulf Coast, where Gustav is preparing to reach land. Looks as if our friends in Mississippi will miss the brunt of the storm and, as of this writing, New Orleans has been largely evacuated. Pray the storm weakens before it hits land.
Next Friday will be the first halftime band show I will miss since I began announcing for the Rittman Band in the 2000 season. WIXYjr and I will be attending the Promise Keepers event in Cleveland at the Wolstein Center. Look for a report at Seek Him First. Hopefully I will be able to bring the WIXYcam in with me.
I am grateful for all the support that has help make 700 posts possible. Your comments here, and encouragement when I make comments on your blogs help give me the motivation to come back for one more post.
About Politics: With my friends being divided on presidential candidates, I have decided to make this blog a "politics free zone." I know how I will vote, but I will not not debate it here. Other blogs are political in nature but this one won't be.
One last rhetorical question before I go: Where has the summer gone?
