First of all, if you didnt catch the 2nd comment in the previous post, were asking for prayer regarding Leonas (Johns mom) John. (That gets confusing in a hurry with two Johns and no apostrophes). Yesterday night we came home to a message from Leona saying that they had had to amputate his right arm at the elbow. I think so much of his condition right now is a mystery to everyone, so were asking for healing, answers, and of course, a peace for both of them in this very, very difficult time.
I just got the pictures from Johns phone so I can share a few glimpses of our evening, Sunday, with Mom and Dad in Portland. These are taken at the Marina Restaurant, downtown, on the waterfront (go figure....). I have to admit, this is the first time I have ever walked anywhere near the waterfront in Portland. It has always looked like a neat thing to do - a cool place to stroll with folks that you love, but I have never made it happen. I guess I can kind of cross that off my list now. Dinner was DELICIOUS, but the company was even better.....
I will also now admit that I had a bit of reservation regarding going to see a Monty Python Musical. Spam-a-Lot is the Broadway Musical version of Monty Pythons Holy Grail movie-show. I barely remember watching bits of that in our AP History class as a treat after a whole lot of very hard work. It seemed like the guys in class loved it a lot more than the gals, but there were parts that made us all laugh. The musical, however, entertained everyone - immensely. I did a lot of laughing and absolutely no when-will-this-be-over feelings.
I think my favorite memory of the evening, however, would be cruising the aisles of the Chevron Mini Mart- all four of us. All looking for some form of junk food, and struggling to come up with the perfect item for the car-trip home. It was a crack-up, all of us wandering with the munchies.
THANKS FOR A WONDERFUL EVENING MOM AND DAD!!!
Finally, here is proof that I am now an official wakeboarder. We went out with the Colemans last night and had a blast with them. I selfishly took a very quick turn and Liz snapped this picture of me out there with Mikayla looking on. Thanks Liz!
