Happy Days !!!!!

First, I like to say "Thank you" to all
for the prayers, thoughts and concerns
for us. We made through all the bad
weather! Yesterday we were under a
TORNADO WARNING and had to take
cover at school! The three Special Ed.
classes hunkered down in our room for
an hour. We were never in danger but
a tornado did tough down about 20-25
miles south of school though. There
was some damage to the downtown
area. Sedalia, Mo was hit by one also.
If you would like to help--here are a
couple of places you can go:
***************************************
School's out for the Summer!!!!!
I made it!
I survived!
***************************************
Our holiday weekend is going to be
busy! Ken's sister and her family are
coming to town.
Minor League Baseball game Saturday
night.
Birthday party for Ken's uncle on Sunday.
Possible movie date with Ken on
Monday.

Women's Tools

The article above is from the current issue of ALL YOU. It is a wonderful article on starting a tool box just for YOU! ************************************ I just happen to have MY own tool box that Mr. Ken started for me several Christmas' ago. I picked out the box so I could have all the little spots for my tools. I love having my own tool box, now I don't have to truck downstairs and find something in Ken's box. The best part is that MY box lives in my sewing room, so all I have to do is walk down the hall to get an item. ********************************* The article recommends: 1. Hammer--lightweight 2. Screwdriver--A multibit ratchet 3. Hardware--screws, nails, eye hooks, cup hooks etc. 4. Adhesives--tapes, glues, paper 5. Pliers--one with a comfy grip on slip joint and needle nose ones for twisting 6. Level--a 9-inch torpedo level with a magnetic strip 7. Tape measure--A standard 25 foot model with 1/16- inch fractions 8. Lightweight drill--a cordless, 8-volt lithium-ion device 9. Socket and Ratchet set-- Look for a set with standard and metric measurements, plus a high number of "teeth" for strength and durability 10. My recommendation-- Sandpaper--different grades. The lower the grit the rougher it is. Goggles probably would be a good thing to have also. The article also suggests checking the Father's days sales for good bargains. **As you can see I have gathered most of what they have suggested. After reading the article, I looked through my box and I am missing a couple of things which I'll pick up at a later date. But I do have everything else. ~Keep on Dreaming~

Memories

Last night Ken and I had
the pleasure of being
invited to a party for a
high school Graduate.
We have been able to
see this young man grow
into a wonderful young
adult. He happens to
have super parents!
Ken and Derrick's Dad
have been friends and
shared a house before
each of them went their
seperate ways. Randy
to marry and Ken to
move on to the next
phase of his life.
We had a great time at
the party. It was fun to
watch the kids spending
time together and be able
to reflect back to my own
graduation and party
afterwards at our home.
I told Ken today that it
is hard to believe that 30
years--yes, I said 30 have
gone by since I was in
high school. Oh, Boy!
I DON'T envy anyone
graduating now! I'll
stay right where I am
and continue growing up!
