Here's a photo of my sister Lisa's two boys, Gage David and Max, with their dog, Hickory, in Decatur Illinois, in front of a lake with lots of lilly pads. Those kids are growing up! Gage will be entering 7th grade this year, and I can't hardly imagine where the time went. He is my namesake. (Chloe was named for Aunt Lisa- both of them have the middle name of our grandmother- Violet. We would have went with Chloe Lisa, but the TV show "The Simpsons" has a corner on the name, but we think it's perfect- we love the name Violet.) Max is going into fourth grade, and looks just like Lisa! Hickory is getting OLD, but is still cute...

Connor and I went to Mandalay Bay today- the actor Kirk Douglas had a book signing, and I was going to take Connor's photo with him, but he left an hour early, and we missed out. Oh well.

We went to our friends Lee and Sharion Morris' house for the July 4 celebration, but dad and Chloe went home early. I'm not feeling great, and Chloe would not nap today, so she was kind of a zombie as the might wore on. I'm watching a great fireworks show from several neighbors who are shooting illegal fireworks up in the air. Happy July 4!

Thanks for the Rick Monday piece. I did not even know about that incident. I met up with Jon Ortega and James(J.C.)Cannon last week at James' home in Ft Washington MD on 24June. I had been up to Woodbridge Va to visit with Jon and to see a Rush concert. No shortage of geezers there. Long ponytails, and no hair on top! Good to hear from you occasionaly! Take care.
