  1. Actually, I’m emotionally wrung out.

    I didn’t do the dishes immediately after dinner because we started watching a four-part interview from the Shoah Foundation.

    It was one of our outlaws telling his story.

    The photography was splendid. It was like Eric sat with us talking away–just as he did so many times in the past. (He died about 14 years ago).

    Articulate even as he detailed the horrors. He ended with some family photos I’d never seen before–so I stepped right up to the television to examine their faces more closely. (We played the videos on our computer, “casting” them to the television).

    I had never heard the whole story before, and watched with the map app open on my Ipad, following his journey. He was arrested in Budapest and marched to Mauthausen, in Austria, not far from Linz.

    He didn’t say how little he weighed by the end of the war on May 5, 1945, when Americans liberated the camp.

    Heavy, but important. It was his family I thought of at Auschwitz three years ago.

  6. Good morning. Happy Birthday, Michelle!

    New this week: 6th Arrow started guitar lessons. ๐Ÿ™‚ We bought a very nice used guitar on Tuesday, and she had her first lesson yesterday. I sat in for her lesson, and her teacher is so thorough and encouraging; very personable. 6th did quite well with remembering the names of the parts of the instrument and the string names, and also with playing the strumming exercises and the fingering exercises. Her teacher said that a lot of students find the initial strumming exercise to be difficult for a while, but 6th nailed it on the second try!

    The lessons are outside at the teacher’s house — for this summer, anyway. He’s got a huge umbrella set up on his deck, with chairs underneath and fans blowing from multiple directions. It certainly stayed cooler under there than how it felt out in the sun when we left. It was already about 90ยฐ when the lesson was done; fortunately her lesson is in the morning, when it wasn’t as hot as what it would get up to by later afternoon.

    He also kindly offered us drinks, which we were happy to take him up on!

    It was neat being outside, to see cardinals flying around, and to listen to the sound of other birds singing in the trees as a backdrop to the guitar strumming as the lesson proceeded. I’m excited for 6th that she has this opportunity now — she requested guitar lessons this winter and has been on his waiting list since then — and, though 6th is quite reserved, I can tell she’s glad to be learning guitar. She had this lovely little smile on her face when we drove home from the guitar shop on Tuesday, and was studying her guitar book on the way home yesterday. The sound of her playing gently wafts through the house — I find it such a pleasing ambiance.

  8. Chas, one thing that is helping me is to use two pairs of reading glasses together. I have a skinny lens/frame pair I can pull up over my head when not in use. I have a large lens/frame pair that I have attached to a chain so they hang down from my neck when not in use. The large frame fits over the smaller frame although not perfectly, but it works. I have one of those oversize pair of sunglasses that fits over glasses that I have used for years. That is where this idea came from. It also means I don’t have to hold a magnifying glass while reading. My ears do all the holding.

  15. The local farmer was mooooving his herd across the road yesterday so we had a short wait on our way home. He told us they would probably only be in that field for 3 days because of our lack of rain. He was grateful to God for that little bit. While we chatted briefly, he also told us of a group meeting to bring some unity to the churches around the area to pray for repentance and revival. It never takes long for Christians to recognize one another. There is, indeed, an aroma that is sensed.

    I took guitar lessons for a while with the choir director at my former (2 churches) church. And my former roommate got seriously into studying classical guitar. When she got married and moved out, though, her husband didn’t like it much and she wound up practicing on the roof of their apartment building so he wouldn’t be disturbed. Eventually she had to give it up when she developed severe carpal tunnel in her hands. She was pretty obsessed with practicing (and she was a legal secretary by day while she also was finishing up her BA, so her hands were just getting a real workout).

    It still looks like we’re on track in CA to open everything up on June 15 (though various counties and businesses will continue to have their own regulations, possibly). What a long, hard and divisive year it’s been.

  24. Happiest of Birthdays Michelle. Six years ago I got to spend it with you.

    Little Miss goes to “Summer Camp” for 3 days next week. She will be doing tumbling. In July she will do another 3 day camp. Papa is experiencing separation anxiety. He is so worried about her crying. He is making Mommy take her, because he doesn’t want to see her cry. I may have to step in and do it for them. She is soooooo ready to play with other children she may make them both cry when she hops out of the car and goes with the teacher.

    Having her is a blessing and at the same time makes me so sad. Watching Mr. P with her. I can’t help but compare him and BG’s father and I can’t help being sad that when BG was little I was constantly told we couldn’t afford anything. Now I can.

    The Gift of Covid last year was that I was forced to stop. Once I had my initial breakdown, I calmed down, and at some point for the first time since 1982 was stress free. My mother’s father- My “Little Papa” died October 18, 1982. The funeral was on a Saturday. When we came home from it is the date fixed in my mind that my mother started drinking and life spiraled from there. My great fear as an adult it that I would do the same thing when my own father died. Tomorrow will mark 13 years I have lived without him and I remain sober.

  25. “Before religion made it all about what we believe, Jesus was all about how we love.” Post on a FB site called “The New Methodists.”

    And shared by the friend (raised Methodist) I’ve been trying to build an online relationship with (we were in elementary school & Girl Scouts together, she now lives in the desert). We’ve clashed before on FB regarding “religion” — she’s a professing Christian but of the very liberal variety. She recently moved and said she’d like to find a church so we’ll see if she can get connected somewhere, but I’m staying out of all that. She’ll do what she decides to do and she’d probably only seek out a very liberal Methodist or other like-minded church.

    Patience. I’m not talking to her about religion much at all right now. Based on things I’ve seen her post, she has a deep hostility toward much of Christian orthodoxy, isn’t too familiar with the Bible, and she often expresses her views about “religion” in quotes that are pretty hostile and argumentative. She’s quite liberal politically and socially.

    And yet, she’s been reached by the Holy Spirit at some level, I believe. She’s had some difficult things from her past to overcome so psychological healing combined with her being raised in the Methodist church seemed to be what got her attention at some point in her adult years.

    I thought we’d found an opening through Paul David Tripp who was a speaker at a counseling group she attended many years ago. She really liked him, she told me, so I’d suggested his Lenten devotional this past year which she immediately ordered — but never said anything about after that (nor did I, my sense is that it was too ‘religious’ for her tastes).

    In May of 2020 one of my agents had to close all of his social media accounts and move away from Florida because of something he posted on FB. He posted it, had second thoughts and deleted it. He didn’t do it fast enough. The FB Mafia had screen shots and kept posting it online, on our company web page and FB page. “If that’t the kind of person who works there I don’t want anything to do with them…”.
    An attorney he didn’t even know contacted him and wanted him to pursue a case against cyber bullying and civil rights. He choose not to and the attorney advised him to have us issue a statement separating ourself from him.
    Even knowing this and being extra careful, back in December I was attacked for saying there was a certain N word that needed to be removed from our language. I used the example of my green eyed blond white child saying it when she was 13. I asked where she heard it and she told me at school and that it was in a couple of songs. I had to explain to her exactly WHY SHE couldn’t say it. I was informed that I had no right to make that statement because I am white. I was put on moderation and received a message from the moderator of the page asking me if I would like some insight into my racially discriminating opinion.
    Just this past Tuesday I was talking to a 30- something gay man about it and he was of the opinion that I was in the wrong back in December. He informed me that I cannot use queer or fag but it is OK for the gay people to call each other that. I internally rolled my eyes then asked him if he had heard about the queer Irishman. He preferred women over whiskey. At least he laughed.

  29. FB nabbed me for ‘violating community standards’ (with “spam”) when I posted a news link in response to a friend’s question about whether a BBC newsman had retired. He had, as it turned out, and I’d linked to a story about Robert Plant (of Led Zeppelin) posting a tweet in praise of the newsperson who is quite renowned in the UK. The link included the news of the retirement; it was a UK publication but not a questionable source in my view (and I’d seen other reports of the retirement, this link just seemed to provide the most succinct info about it).

    So I guess FB considered that link to be spammy, but I suspect it just looked odd (or ‘conservative’?) to some algorithm and so I was pulled over and ticketed, as it were. I’ve been warned to watch myself.

    https://hotair.com/karen-townsend/2021/06/10/study-hydroxychloroquine-increases-the-survival-rate-of-severely-ill-coronavirus-patients-n395840

    “Has there been a drug more vilified during the coronavirus pandemic than hydroxychloroquine (HCQ)? There is a new study out that may vindicate those who touted HCQ as a viable treatment drug for COVID-19. If the study findings hold up after it is peer-reviewed, HCQ taken with azithromycin, improved COVID-19 survival by nearly 200% in ventilated patients. That conclusion would be very good news.

    For most of us, the whole controversy over the use of hydroxychloroquine in treating COVID-19 patients seemed mostly political in nature and less so about the drugโ€™s effectiveness. Once Donald Trump came out in support of it, the gloves came off. At least half of the country decided that HCQ was not a scientific treatment for the coronavirus because the bad Orange Man was an anti-science president. Never mind that it was Trump who expedited the vaccine process to historic speed with Operation Warp Speed. He put together a White House coronavirus task force before many people (especially on the left) were willing to acknowledge the pandemic that originated in China. When Trump announced that he was taking HCQ himself, he was roundly mocked. Nevertheless, others in the medical community studied the use of the drug during the pandemic and found some positive results.

    Dr. Robin Armstrong treated a nursing home outbreak of COVID-19 in Texas City, Texas with HCQ because it was available and worth a try if it saved patients. While Armstrong doesnโ€™t credit hydroxychloroquine with saving the lives of his elderly patients, he touts the gamble as a success. The State of Texas purchased mass quantities of the drug and that is where Armstrongโ€™s supply came from. He provided tablets to 38 residents who had tested positive but not yet shown symptoms. Three patients died, but 35 no longer showed COVID-19 symptoms. He declared them as โ€œrecovered,โ€ though some still tested positive for the virus itself.

    The drug remdesivir became a drug of preference in the medical community in the treatment of COVID-19. HCQ is cheap in price (under $10 for the course of a COVID-19 treatment) and has been used for more than 80 years, mostly as an anti-malaria drug. It is taken orally. Remdesivir is โ€œa proprietary, intravenous drug manufactured by Gilead Sciences, costing about $3,500 per treatment, with unknown side effects.โ€ Fauci and others at the National Health Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases preferred remdesivir. Why would that be? Letโ€™s follow the money. There is an interesting op-ed in the Washington Times that does just that.”

    “Heart inflammation in young men higher than expected after Pfizer, Moderna vaccines -U.S. CDC”

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/cdc-heart-inflammation-cases-ages-140826238.html

    “A higher-than-expected number of young men have experienced heart inflammation after their second dose of the mRNA COVID-19 shots from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna, according to data from two vaccine safety monitoring systems, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on Thursday.

    The CDC and other health regulators have been investigating heart inflammation cases after Israelโ€™s Health Ministry reported that it had found a likely link to the condition in young men who received Pfizerโ€™s COVID-19 vaccine.

    The agency said it is still assessing the risk from the condition and has not yet concluded that there was a causal relationship between the vaccines and cases of myocarditis or pericarditis.

    While some patients required hospitalization, most have fully recovered from their symptoms, the CDC said.

    More than half of the cases reported to the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) after people had received their second dose of either the Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna vaccines were in people between the ages of 12 and 24, the CDC said. Those age groups accounted for less than 9% of doses administered.

    “We clearly have an imbalance there,” Dr. Tom Shimabukuro, deputy director of the CDC’s Immunization Safety Office, said in a presentation https://www.fda.gov/media/150054/download to an advisory committee to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration meeting on Thursday. “

    Somersaults: front and back, but only on the floor (not aerial sommies).

    Cartwheels: mostly two-handed, one side definitely preferred over the other; never landed an aerial cartwheel, though I would try on occasion.

    Backbends, yes; back walkovers, too; no back handsprings — way too scary!

    Front walkovers, and front handsprings (my favorite!).

    I think the last time I tried any of the above was in my early to mid-30s, just to see if I could still do them, after probably having stopped doing them a decade before. Let’s just say that wasn’t too smart an idea. ๐Ÿ˜‰ (No broken bones or torn anything, but definitely uncomfortable during and for a while after!)

We’ll see how it plays out; right now I’m booked as full as I want to be. If other students end up quitting, then I might have open times that work for these new families. It’s all in the Lord’s hands, and that is wonderful.)
