Big week here.
It is the National Quartet Convention.
Thanks to the Booth Brother's newsletter I discovered we
could purchase a subscription to watch the entire week
live streamed for $65.
Seemed easy enough.
But to make it easier to see it on television and not just the smaller
computer screen we ordered a Roku device.
It doesn't work.
So, poor Warren spent hours fussing with it and finally
ended up feeding our large tv from his computer anyway.
The big tv has been hanging out in our bedroom since the flooding
downstairs. We are hoping to get it set back up down there "soon".
What that means is....eventually.
But for this week it is sitting in the living room beside the one we usually
use here because it can be attached to the computer while the older one

Chadd had to have his gall bladder removed in emergency surgery last Sunday.
Because he needed one more surgery, right?
But we are looking forward to relief for him and are thankful for

I am feeling much better!
I still tire so stinkin' easy but know that each week brings

Joseph and Lindsay hosted.
They are the daughter and son-in-law of Mrs. Rabe at
What fantastic hosts.
It was relaxed, the food was great

As I mentioned before, the food was fantastic.
Turkey, ham, breads, cheeses, apples with dip, grapes and fun
Warren and I definitely loved it and enjoyed our time with friends.
Today I am off to pick up more wax, see the chiropractor,
have lunch with a friend and then return back here to get more work done
before spending an evening with music and politics.
My dual loves.
It will be tricky to make both work...but we will.
After all, you don't have a political debate like will happen tonight
every day...or every year for that matter.
No matter what my opinion of our options this year
I celebrate the history making aspects of all of it.
Have a great one!!
