Birthday Golfing

Today is Doug's 56th birthday, so he went for his annual golf outing with family to celebrate. We had to change the time as it ended up being really hot today, so golf had to be earlier than originally planned. Doug doesn't do heat so well, although he is much better since he has been on breathing medicines. Here is Doug with my dad, and his sister, Jean, in the middle of his golf outing.

Birthday Greetings!!

Doug will celebrate his 56th birthday on Monday, August 30th. If you would like to send him a card, please do so. He loves to get mail!! If you don't know our address (sorry, not putting that out here!) you can send him a birthday greeting in the form of a comment on the blog. I think I can print those up for him. If not, he can still enjoy reading them on the computer.

Please join me in helping Doug celebrate a wonderful birthday, and thanks!!!

Yeah for my sister!!

Doug's sister Valerie is battling a rare form of cancer, signet ring cell carcinoma of the appendix. She ended up going by ambulance to a hospital and excellent surgeon in Baltimore. Doug and I had just returned from visiting her and were at a fund raiser for her at our local fire station. Here is Doug receiving the news that Val had just had the tube removed from her nose that had been there for about two weeks! You can check in on Val at and see how she is doing. Doug loves his family, and we sure love Doug--the grin on his face says it all!!

Rachel Ray

Making breakfast this morning for Doug. As I work at the stove, he tells me, "You look like Rachel Ray! She is a nice girl!" It must have been the knife while I was chopping because I am quite sure the night shirt and woodpecker hair would not meet national television criteria!! I have not seen Rachel Ray, but if she is a "nice girl" and I remind Doug of her, what's not to like about that??

Just another of the many little stories that make living with Doug a joy. When you're around Doug, it just reminds you that the rest of us make life way too complicated most of the time.
