I said an extra prayer and sent a card to a friend today who was remembering and missing her sister. Sadly her sister was a victim of the Tolley Square shooting last year and with today being the anniversary emotions are pretty raw.

sewing

i sewed logo on my grandson's shirt. he is in school to be a ex-ray tech. works full time and has a baby as well. he is 25 now, but it made me remember when i made cover-alls for him when he was young. he is always so pleased when i do something simple for him. he said "mine will be the best"

I spent a half hour in bed today, hugging my wife, giving her my all. She is at midpoint chemo theropy for breast cancer. It was a really down day for her. God bless.

Appropriate for what? Buzzard is my name, sort of. Dad was on a one week leave during WWII. Mom and he spent the entire time at Buzzards Bay, MA. This is where I was conceived and I consequently was born with the nickname Buzz. All my life my friends have called me by this name or a variation, including Buzzard. A few ex-Viet Cong folks will never forget the call sign Buzzard Flight they heard on their portable radios as we were rolling our Marine Corps fighters in on target, and after more than thirty years of airline flying friends from a dozen or more countries affectionately call me Buzzard.

So there ya go. It can't be inappropriate because I *am* Buzzard through and through.

I don't eat carrion though.

Thanks for sending your love. My wife and I truly appreciate it. Today is another downer and it breaks my heart for her to have to go through this ****. Let's stop government pork projects and unnecessary wars and instead use some of that money to defeat cancer.

Buzz, your story brought tears to my eyes. Your wife is a lucky woman.


Yesterday, in class, we were assigned our first group project and I prevented our group leader from taking on more work than was fair. And I had dinner ready when DH got home from his class (one he was teaching) later than expected, tired and cranky.

Bean- I think I worked with that girl when she was 17... sad story, Post Journal had article in today about it.
I listened to a friend on the phone for almost an hour, sometimes nothing being said just being on the other end of the phone. I hope it made him feel better.

Today a friend at work found out her mother in law and father in law both DIED on the same day, in Hong Kong. She is on the first flight out tomorrow, we took up a collection at work to defray her travel costs, we raised over $1300.
