It's been a long time!
"Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself and know that everything in this life has a purpose"...Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
And I have been "silent" way too long!! We have been out of town, then when we returned our computer access was out. The road leading to our house is being reworked. What started out to be repair of potholes has turned into a major project. We know that eventually it will be really good, but in the meantime, we are dealing either with mucho dust or slimy mud!! And the reason our DSL service was out is that somehow the road crew had cut our line!! That only took three days to get fixed!!
While in Fredricksburg, we visited the Museum of the Pacific...Admiral Niminz who was the commander of the Pacific Operation, is from Fredricksburg and there has been a museum about him there for quite a long time. Then this museum, sponsered by George Bush the first, was built and just opened up last December 7. It is a very impressive building and artifacts...extremely well done...is comprable to any museum we have seen in Washington, DC. Any war buff or anyone with an interest in WWII should not miss it!
I am sewing on a gift for my daughter for her birthday which was Friday. She just moved into a new home and I am making her a gift to go with it!! I can't show it because she reads my blog, so I will wait until next week after we get together. She, my other daughter and granddaughter as well as some friends are doing the Susan Koman Race for the Cure/5K...for me it is the "walk" for the cure!! This will be probably our 15th or more time to do it.
