Last Sunday we celebrated Dean's 85th birthday with a bunch of us at a park in Tomah. It was great. Dean and I spent most of the time watching the two little tots playing. The almost two- year-old, was running so fast she amazed me. The little one-year-old was trying everything the others were doing, and he could barely walk to keep up with them. They were precious.

Lots of fun, games, food, and fellowship.
And Dean was back in the swing!!

Bobbi won't like me for publishing this picture but I love it.
She was home for the weekend to attend her 40th high school class reunion, and she had a great time.
I sent some copies of my book and she gave them away. I only have seven left so I am keeping them for future grandchildren.
Don't fuss Bobbi, it really is a good picture.

Today is a hearing for Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court. It is another federal position that doesn't bother to use a record for a decision.

We have been hearing about all these 30 plus czars Obama is bringing into service without any hearings or any other accountability to anyone but Obama. He even sets their salaries.

Today I have been reading re the science czar chosen by Obama. He is John Holdren.
I don't like his record.
I don't like his reaction to what he has deemed as the "population explosion." In 1977, his solution was "compulsory abortions."

Holdren has forecast many calamaties that never happened.
Now it is global warming.

Prayer is needed for this nation now much more than ever. I see the federal government following the wrong way every day.

I don't like what I read and hear.

Dean and I started last week to exchange two rooms. That is to make the office the guest room and the guest room, the office. Understand??
And believe me it has been a chore and we are only about half done. Each room has a walk-in closet and that means the shelving for the office has to be moved and the door removed. The guest room gets the closet rods now and the door back on. The tedious work is getting all the papers and craft stuff cleaned up and moved to the shelves. That is taking forever.
We have boxes and stuff all through the house yet to find a new home in the change.

A friend came over yesterday and exclaimed, "It looks like a tornado came through here!" And she was right! The tornado was Dean and I.

The other room has proved to be larger than I thought and I know I am going to love it! I have an eight foot counter now for work space. It sits on four 2-drawer file cabinets with pix and the like in them which means I must get back to scrapbooking. The hardest part is finding a spot for everything in a better order that it had been. That is proving to be really hard but I am amazed at the things I have that I'd forgotten completely.

Dean still has his desk, computer, and file cabinet to move, and my computer, and the printers.
Three desk chairs will be simple to move , pix and stuff, and of course, curtains, all have to be exchanged. And on, and on, it goes. Bobbi will be here next weekend so we have to have it done!!
So, we have been busy, and we are tired.

We haven't forgotten it is July 4 and we will get together with Daughter Betty's family at her house, and the weather promises to be perfect. So we should get past this tiredness and be rested.
I hope you all have a perfect day, too. And remember to at least fly Old Glory!!
