i hope you haven't forgotten me!!!
i remember a poster that used to hang in the infirmary at murray state university when i was going to college:
"a cold lasts 7 days unmedicated.
medicated, it only lasts a week."
kat and i had a girl's afternoon on wednesday.
after gathering her from school,we went to b-dubs
(buffalo wild wings), katherine's favorite little pub.
after lunch, we went shopping for shoes for the
military ball. no luck:/
wednesday night was performance night on american
idol. the show was great!!! there is a guy on
this season's show that is AMAZING; his name is
anyway, this week was motown week, and smokey robinson
was the coach for the contestants as well as one of
the guest entertainers.
adam chose to perform "tracks of my tears" by
mr. robinson. it was so good, it brought tears
to smokey's eyes; as well it brought the motown
legend to his feet for an ovation:
what do you think about mr. lambert???
on friday evening, john and katherine accompanied
chico to his military awards ceremony. chico
received several individual awards including
"high academic achievement". he was proud of
himself. we were proud of him, too:D
he was happy that katherine and john went with him...
as his parents both had to work friday night.

yesterday was an interesting day on the lane...
(the weather forecasters had been saying all
week that we should expect a couple of pretty
big storms to come through the tri-state area
on saturday.) however, when i watched the late
news on friday night, the meteorologist said
that he believed the most significant storms
would track south of henderson.
NOT the case!!!
at about 3 yesterday afternoon, the sky turned
dark and very ominous. thus, i turned on the
television to see what the weather situation
was (if there were any severe weather watches
the local news advised...
"go immediately to the lowest level of your
house. put as many walls between you and the
outside walls as possible. if you have them,
don bicycle helmets. (and finally, get
under a heavy, sturdy object."
so, i grabbed maggie and the radio, whistled
for the cats, and gathered katherine and her
friends. downstairs we went and stayed until
an "all clear" was given. we were lucky here
on the lane: the tornado went around us.
however, those living just 5 miles south and
west of the lane were not so lucky:/
as a result of the tornado that touched down
there, those neighbors experienced "significant
structural damage" . that area of henderson
was declared a "state of emergency" before sunset
last night. it remains so today with civil
defense workers going door-to-door checking
in on those residents living amongst the
please keep those affected in your thoughts and prayers.
well, that's my week in a nut shell...
i've missed you all and hope you've had a great week:D
love and God's blessings,
