My brother Bill is doing better. Thursday night he was driving his car when he blacked out and crashed into the ditch. Luckly a co-worker was right behind him. He called for help right away. Thank God he did, the doctor said that he would have been died in 15 minutes. He had an aneurysm burst in his stomach, the doctor said that it had been there at least 2 years. He was bleeding internally and lost 8 units of blood. A great doctor at Mercy Hospital in Des Moines saved his life. He is still in the ICU, hopefully he will be in his own room by tomorrow. There is just the two of us left. I can't believe I almost lost him.

JoAnn, your brother was so very fortunate that his co-worker was there. I hope he recuperates very quickly and is home and healed in time for Christmas. I had an occasion to smile this morning: we belong to an organization called Amigos de Bucerias...it is basically a service group of mostly expatriates like ourselves (although we do have a few Mexican members) who want to do something for the community. We buy trash cans and set them out around our little town, and this morning, two of us took some to the local children's shelter so the children could paint them and make them a little prettier. As I walked in the door, a little four-year old girl ran to me with her arms outstretched for me to pick her up, which I did, happily. The few hours we spent there were full of smiles. My Spanish is not fluent, but we had little trouble communicating. Being retired, I've been looking for some way to spend my free time more productively. I guess I have found it.

Karen,
what a wonderful thing you're doing. Anyone who gives to a child be it a new toy or some of your time or a hug, is one special person. Bless you. You've made a little child happy.

ok, this is silly but.... a few weeks ago I got another jury summons in the mail. This would have been the 4th time in 5 years that I'd been called to serve. I was suppose to show up at the courthouse Tuesday morning at 8 but... they just called and they have toooooo many people and not enough trials. I don't have to go! Yippppeeeeee! Yipppppeeeee! Yipppppeeeee!
