How was your week?
How are you all? Anything noteworthy going on? Have you heard of Dr. Christian before? Not me.
Vision, we hadn’t heard of Dr. Christian before, and I tried to look it up last night—another missing synopsis. Oh, well.
Keith’s brining a chicken and will smoke it in a little while. It’s a beautiful day today. We played 18 holes of disc golf. It was fun. It was my first time playing a full round. Keith is a disc golf lover from way back; he’s good at it. We just discovered a couple of courses here on the Coast, and the one we played is just a few minutes from our house.
I hope your professional struggles smooth our very soon, Vision.
I like the picture. They’ve updated his page on WAMU (where I ripped off that photo). They also have an hour-and-a-half video of Mr. Walker with Rob Bamberger on-stage recently. They said Ed’s older sister had died in the past year. She was in her mid-80s.
Hi Everyone, how are you? Nice weather here....finally...
Hi, Doc! It sounds like all three of us are enjoying a beautiful day today.
Really did enjoy getting out in the fresh air this weekend...Went to a flower show yesterday...Went to the dr Fri...Allowed to hold a plate, nothing heavier in that arm,,, & must continue exercises 3 times a day. He said I’m doing well. Ok to drive...
Can’t wait for my Spirea to bloom this year!
Well, it’s good you’re moving in the healed direction, Doc.
Spring is about to be sprung, and your bridal wreath will be beautiful! :-)
Well, the ribs only turned out ok. I'm heading to listen in bed and catch the 11pm Whistler on anitoch.
Have a great week you two.
