Saturday night I had a new experience for intertainment. I talked to a friend of my daughters and she said that she skated in a roller derby. They had a match at the fairgrounds that Saturday night. Having watch the roller derby on TV years ago I thought it would be fun to go for a change. The two friends that went with weren't thrilled but I enjoyed it. My friends did enjoy the party afterwards with the skaters at a local tavern. It was a fun time and I'll go again since I do know some of the skaters.

Memorial Day

Here it is, Memorial Day, the day we honor those who went to war to die for our freedom. My brother-in-law was in the Army during the Korean Conflict. He was fortunate to spend his time in Germany rather than Korea. However, he did get the shots and was headed there when they changed his orders. That was 61 years ago. Now the family decorates his grave on Memorial Day as he passed away last year.

New Nephew

This my latest new nephew. My sister's daughter is holding her grandson, Caysen. They have 5 grandchildren already and she is only 53. Her twins both had babies at the same time, 2 years apart, twice and made them double grandparents twice so now they have 5 grandchildren already. I am glad it is them though that has to take care of them. That is a lot of work for the parents. Makes you appreciate all the more all the work our own Mom did for us.

After the Rain

After the rain, you often see a Rainbow. I never get tired of seeing rainbows. Just a while back there was a double rainbow. My niece got a great picture of it as you can see here. God destroyed the earth with a great flood. He put the rainbow in the sky as his promise never to do that again. It is really neat to see those rainbows, especially when there are 2 of them.

Mothers Day

My Mother died 30 years ago but her memory is still alive in my heart. She gave me 2 sisters to help remind me I'm not alone in this old world. She fed me and clothed me and kept me well through some really bad winters. I remember 20's and 30's below for weeks at a time and seemed like it lasted at least 12 months. Then 6 months of summer and then another 12 months of winter. Thank You Lord for making the winter shorter as I got older. I really don't think I could hack it buddy if they were like they were in the 40's, 1940's that is. This last winter we just finished was a super winter for history books. Record temps all winter and you only needed a sweatshirt to go outside instead of a parka. They said it was the second warmest in history and I'm 75 so I don't know how far back you have to go to find the warmest one. I just know it was before 1936 when I showed up to make the world a better place for a few people. I think that's enough for a while so I'll be going. Thank You Mom for bringing me into this world so I could write this, Love OZZIE

Super Moon Sunday Night

Did you get to see the Super Moon on Sunday night May 6th. If you didn't, you really missed something. They said it was the closest the moon comes to the earth and it doesn't happen very often. It was quite a site. It looked like an orange Harvest Moon at first before it became white. Sure glad the rain stopped so we could see it. Most of the time when a meteor shower goes thru or something like that it is all cloudy and we miss it but this time we got to see it very clearly.
