  1. Good morning Chas. πŸ™‚

    Goodnight Jo, or good morning Jo, since you probably won’t read this until you wake up. πŸ™‚

    Good morning to all the rest of you too.

  2. Good morning. I woke up praying for Chas and his family and caregivers.β™‘

    Miss Bosley just sneezed twice. Even she has allergies as the weather warms up and more pollens are swirling. The temp rose to 78Β° yesterday.

  3. Good morning, Chas and all. Good night, Jo.

    We did not have a busy shift last night, so I have caught up on some of the blog.
    Mumsee, I am so sorry for your loss. Will add your loss to the prayers for your family. Also praying that your daughter have peace with whatever direction God would lead her in regards to further testing.
    Jo, I pray you get over your illness and regain your strength.
    Kizzie, I am so happy to see that you have been out with both of your girls!

    It looks like everyone has had friends and family with significant health issues and losses. I am thankful that we have this group to pray for us.

  4. Good Morning Aj, Chas,Janice,rk and all…and goodnight Jo β™₯️

    A beautiful warm day again today then the temps begin to fall and snow returns. Seasons in nature and in life with much to contemplate this morning. Thankful for my fellow wanderers as we cover one another in prayer, support and encouragement. You all are a blessing for sure.

  5. It is difficult to explain to others outside of this group what it means to have a set of friends who are so loyal over the years to stay in such frequent communication. It is one of those supernatural gifts from God over and above what we could think or imagine. I praise Him for His unique and wonderful gift of our precious blog family.

  6. A man who was very influential in our circle of churches died yesterday. He was 94(?). He prayed like no one I know. When you were with him you felt the presence of God in him.

  7. Good morning, good night.

    I have thought it was Friday every day this week.

    I started David Paul Tripp’s “Journey to the Cross” yesterday, a 40-day devotional I actually bought last year but didn’t use.

    He starts out saying how his greatest gift as a child growing up — in more of a cultural Christian environment — was the knowledge of his own sin and the seriousness of that before God. He was only 9 at the time and it was a crushing realization, he said. But it changed everything for him in his own understanding. He goes on to say that lament and mourning are an integral part — and so needed — in the Christian life. For everything there is a season.

    I need to pick up dog meds today or tomorrow — and probably need to claim a vacation day Monday to keep my hours below the cap.

    We’ve had warmer than usual weather for the past week or more, but today that changes and we “should” get some rain overnight tonight. It’s foggy and overcast this morning.

  8. Good morning, Chas, and good morning/afternoon/evening, all else.

    Third Arrow recorded me this morning playing my tribute piece for Chas. Sixth Arrow appears in the video as the page-turner of the scrawled copy of music she’d never seen before.

    Unfortunately, the video file, at almost 3 1/2 minutes, is too big to send by text or email, I found. I’ll look into perhaps uploading it to YouTube another day, when I have more time to research techie stuff like that.

    Have a beautiful day. God’s blessings to you all.

  9. Although I am not big on videos, this one was recommended in Tim Challies daily roundup of links worth reading (or watching, in the case of an occasional video), so I gave it a watch. This not-quite-12-minute video is worth a watch.

  10. A belated good morning, especially to Chas and his family.

    Charlie, I can’t add a lot to what others have said about what you mean to us as a group. Your steady faithful devotion to Jesus, your love and care for Elvera and for your family, your service in your church and in the Lions Club, your interest in all of us, all give me an example to aspire to be like.

    I’ve so enjoyed knowing you these 20 years. I had hoped to meet you in person someday in this life. But I still look forward to seeing you face to face on the other side.

  11. Janice, thank you for the alert on Facebook Messenger, which I saw yesterday. I was not actually off work the last week, I was just off of most online socializing because work and church were very busy.

  12. A day or two ago Michelle asked what CUL OM meant, and someone explained what it stood for. It’s a phrase long used in Morse code. Radio operators often refer to each other as OM (for old man), and would close out communication with CUL OM (see you later, old man). I picked it up when I was an amateur radio operator in my youth. Chas got it from his years in the service, if I remember right.

  13. Six Arrows if you have a gmail, you can send the music video to me in DRIVE and I can upload it to my (rarely used) Youtube account.

    Good morning all. It’s RAINING, thanks be to God!

  14. Good to see you Kevin!
    Peter how dear that the Lord blessed you with such a man in your life. I am sorry for your loss of him for now and rejoice there will be a day of gathering together once again
    There are two dear believers that were in my life such as you described. Our Pastor in SC and a dear Missionary friend here in CO. How I yearn to walk so closely with the Saviour as they.
    It is 70 degrees here right now and I have spent most of the morning outdoors with the dogs. We have a few park benches on the property and the one exposed to the sun was the one I sat upon as I prayed for many this morning. Such a sweet time with our Lord and His hearing your names and the names of others.

  15. Just turning 6am here this morning. Still sleepy, but I am up.

    Morning Chas.

  16. Michelle, thank you for the Google Drive tip! I found Drive on my phone and am uploading the video to it now. It’s about half done and I have to leave for work now, but I will try sending the vid to you in Drive when I get home tonight. So far so good! 6

  17. The stone staircase runs downhill beside our back wall from the patio on a small plateau to a landing by our basement door. I finally got it cleared of accumulated debris from the past two years or so. I had to pull ivy away from the lower part today. It was perfect weather for the chore. It also put me near the new neighbor’s deck.

    While i worked there, their little dog was let outside and commenced barking. The neighbor was embarrassed. I said several times that it is no problem. I asked if she is enjoying the new house and she said yes so I said good or something like that. She did not stay out. At least the ice is broken.

  18. Sounds like a fun activity, Jo. I always enjoyed our special activity days when I worked in the preschool. One thing fun we did sometimes once a year was to swap classrooms with another class.

  19. This morning at Bible study one of the elderly couples, Phil and Eva announced they were celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary today.

    What a blessing. πŸ™‚

    It’s so unusual these days to see that kind of commitment, to their Lord, and one another. Phil is a very wise teacher, and a gentle soul. πŸ™‚

    True story. They sold their his and hers Harleys a few years back, with over 130,000 miles on each, which they bought brand new. They traveled all over the US together for decades. πŸ™‚

  20. I had an elderly friend who moved out of the area a few years ago, after her husband died. She loves the Lord. She and he rode motorcycles and snowmobiles all over the place. The one accident she remembered was when she hit a deer on highway 12 and nearly severed her arm. Her husband, on his bike behind her, saw it coming but nothing he could do. It did not slow her down after it healed

  21. I seem to have suddenly joined the ranks of people for whom “Like” doesn’t work. There are a lot of posts I would like to like today, but it doesn’t look like I can like.

  22. I now “get” to self-publish my biography of Lettie Cowman and am beginning the organizational process.

    In the course of this, my friends at OMS suggested I look at Aneko Press as a possibility for publication. I’d never heard of this press before, but looking at it, I’m encouraged by the ministry focus.

    Here’s the first of several pages of free Ebooks: https://anekopress.com/product-category/free/

  23. Same comment? Everyone’s an editor.

    Headline on our website today: “CDC shifts LA County’s COVID-19 transmission to β€˜low,’ triggering major move away from masking”

    Quite amazing.

  24. Kevin- Your “Like” of my post shows up in my notices.

    I broke the ice today. There was a lot of ice built up in the main cave entrance. It finally melted over the last two warm days, but a little remained by the gate. I broke it up before my firt tour.

  25. Tomorrow is the start of Liz’s Spring Break, so we’re retrieving her in the morning.

    Daylight Savings starts in a little more than 2 weeks.

    And Spring is only 3 weeks away.

    Not complaining, but this Winter went quick. πŸ™‚

  26. We are yawning here so it’s gonna be an early bedtime. Watching Rizoli and Ives reruns does not keep folks awake.

    Saying prayers before sleep. Chas and family are on top of all the intercessions.

  27. Michelle, check your email. πŸ™‚

    I didn’t know how to send from my Google Drive to your Google Drive, but I somehow managed to find a way to copy the link to the video in my Drive and email the link to you.

    A miracle!

    I don’t know if you can upload to your YouTube from my email link, but you should be able to play the video from my email, like I did just now to test it.

    If it doesn’t upload to YT in that format, I can email the same link to others, by request, In fact, I’ll send one to NancyJill (as you’ve already requested I share it!) and to Kim (and Kim, thank you for passing it along to Chas’ family), right after I post this!

  29. Peter, I’m not sure which email to use for AJ. Is he getting a new one, did I hear? I don’t remember the details of a previous conversation about this, but I believe one of his emails got hacked.

    Anyway, time to put all the tech to bed now. πŸ™‚

    Good night, wanderers.

    Prayers, dear Chas.
