Hi Reed, How are you doing today. I hope you are not as hot as I am. We have had some really hot days this summer but this one is BAD. I hope that you are feeling better. How is it going?

Hi Reed, It looks like it is going to rain today. I am sorry because this is the second day I missed my swimming. I was wondering if you were able to go to church yesterday? Can the priest pay a visit to your house for communion. I know ours did that for my mom.
I hope this note finds you in good spirits. I went to the doctor this week and last week. I am still trying to sort out the insulin, oh boy. Wrong kind and sent way from DC. Have you ever heard of Novolog mix. Me either. Thank goodness I did not start taking it.
I hope you are feeling better and Russ too. Ellen.

Reed, I think you should order one of these to pick up things like the paper and things on the floor:
you can also get devices to help put on your socks. I cant remember what my brother used when he had his back operation. ask at a medical supply place, maybe where you got the walker.

The Fair starts Aug 1. this weekend is "take-in" where everyone brings their items to be judged (except bread and foods that must be eaten right away. next week I judge the quilts Monday and canned goods Wednesday. I have a lot of things to do to prepare, like I have to make a skirt for my crock pot for the chili contest. HAHA, a crockpot skirt.

making hamburger rolls today and something else haven't decided yet.
