I heard from my uncle again over the weekend, and I am dutifully passing on his update on my aunt. Thank you (again and again and again and again) for your prayers. Howdy, all. Greetings from Texas.

Humor for Monday: Animals on Parade

Two jokes today, since I’m positive I’ll forget next week. 🙂 First, from Good, Clean Funnies: After buying her kids a pet hamster, after they PROMISED they would take care of it, Mom, as usual, ended up with the responsibility.
