Dear Family and Friends:
Today Joyce is more alert and the smiles are back. Even ate two of the chocolate chips cookies I baked. Dale just went outside to hit a few practice golf balls but I bet he will be coming in soon as it has started to rain. It is much needed. With the drought Charlotte had last year, the lawns are not in very good shape. The paper yesterday informed us that we can now water and wash cars one day a week. Dale took advantage of that news and washed both our vehicles this morning. It has been interesting watching the Pope's visit to the U.S. on TV. What ceremony - pomp and circumstance!!
