I forgot to share David‘s good news from Friday afternoon.  His eyes are doing great!  The retina specialist said he was graduating David to six months without an appointment.

Speaking of graduating, Mallory did that yesterday, but we did not get to watch it.  The church did not have the wi-fi necessary.  We did see a few pictures and hope to hear a report from the family today.

There have been a couple of area deaths, but I’m waiting for obituaries from the funeral home before I share them.
