Nebraska Evening Sky, check out the Moon


23rd June 2010

Hi again. Looks wonderful, and really beautiful sky. You should see a magnificient full moon in a few days. Loved the bears, glad they are stuffed, however might be fun to see one, from the vehicle of course. Bruce really liked the birthday card. It was in the 90's again. No rain.. There was a very brief shower here, some got wet, most didn't . Travel safely, and continued good weather.

Kevin's surgery
Kevin is out of surgery. Everything went fine...Lloyd says he has had two good days since beginning a regimen of 3 capsules of fish oil daily a week ago. It is amazing. He is like his ole self again. PTL... Nanny says she wants to see Will's legs too...You are covering a lot of territory. Justin, how do you get the elevation of where you are every day? We love you, Evelyn

Enjoying keeping up with your trip ! We got up early to be at Toccoa to pray with Pastor Kevin & Pam before surgery , all went well, we saw him to his room, but he was still prety groggy. Will probably stay overnite. Marge , you'd have been disappointed , he didn't take any "joy juice" so we couldn't make fun of him as he did with you & me.

Hello, Justin, Marge and Will,
Sounds like you are covering a lot of ground and taking in the sites. I took a similar trip in 1976. Brings back memories of the sites. Oh, we have the same moon here. Ha! Love you all. Barb and Lyndell
