Thanks for the note. That is great to know Mike Ellis is writing that Grant.
A big relief for me to say the least. That is really nice of him to work so
hard. Volunteers are so hard to come by.
Newsline as you know is signed up with RSVP in Flint. Time again for another
luncheon to honor all the volunteers. It is held at one of the Methodist
churches in Flint. Time for another clay class I believe also. I was
supposed to do some gardening but the only living thing in any of the pots
has been this darn cat of ours. I know we will hopefully get some help with
Newsline God willing.
I am glad you are doing so much better. My dad had a stress test
oday --so far so good. Those darn complications from diabetes. I ate
enough smoothie and ice cream today for the both of us so you won't have to
worrry about that. Seriously, I am usually better about my diet.
I talked with a woman who is interested in the NFB.
I was asked to co-help with the Lutheran Outreach with Mary Jackson. She was
supposed to come to the mall when our chapter at large--a few of us met
there in Auburn Hills.
She fractured her ankle unfortunately.
Hope you continue to do well. We are doing good. I have a few bad days now
and then--that darn pain.
I love the global search on Newsline, the Readers Digest, Braille Monitor,
tech magazines, and much more.
I thought aboutt helping out with the Labor Day bridge walk but acctually I
have my hands full with Newsline. It certainly sounds like a lot of fun. I
can make it up the top of the big dunes but have never walked the total
length of that particular trail. Due to a former Newsline volunteer, we have
been on quite a number of the popular trails at sleeping Bear, Ranger led
walks and down to the lake on a rather hidden trail that is rather quick.
Ken said it was every man for himself on that big dune hike so Sammie and I
got to the top. We made it all the way on the other trails. I guess we did
the best we could. Sammie was always such a good sport. We didn't make it
there the last couple years.
I had my fifth evaluation on June 7 with Leader Dog and they said I could
go to the school for 3 weeks of training with a dog guide. I am praying that
maybe they will let me stay for all four weeks.
If you hear from Christine, please tell her that we have been praying for
her and her family.
It is quiet here tonight and the only noise is the expressway noise and the
My counsin is having a party for my brother and myself/family reunion. It
will be on Sunday and should be fun.
Have a good night.
Georgia and Ken
Newsline has a new help line number. Will tell you later.
