  • Good News!!

    Some of you are were aware of my girlfriend, Betty's, brother being diagnosed with leukemia a couple of months ago. He underwent a series of Chemo treatments and all the brothers and sisters were tested as possible bone marrow donors. None were a match. He is now in remission and over 200 donor matches have been identified worldwide. Our local volunteer fire department granted us the use of the fire house yesterday for a benefit where we raised well over $5000.00. In addition to the auction and raffels we had four different Bluegrass bands who donated their time and talent and several individual singers. Betty and I want to thank all of you who kept Robert and the family in your prayers. Faith is a powerful medicine in and of itself and your friendship and spiritual support have been a significant contribution to this outcome. Give yourself a big hug from Bett' and me!!! I'm going to try to design and build a nice sign or plaque for inside the fire house and welcome any input and ideas in that regard.

              I wasn't aware of the situation but I'm delighted that everyone's pooling their talents and helping out. Fingers crossed for the happiest of outcomes !

                My wife and I got the Moderna vaccine with our second shot last week. We had no reaction after the first shot but both of us had some body and fatigue for two days after the 2nd dose.

                Here in Mid-Michigan, my wife & I (both 65) got our first shot - the Pfizer one - last Sunday; with our second one scheduled for March 21st. Both of us were a little fatigued that evening... went to be early. Next day, just had a sore arm where we received the shot. Hope it's that way with the second...
