Another easy relaxed day, and we both enjoyed it. Both of us ended up sleeping in late, and Jason told me that he slept through the night, which he hasn't done in a long time. I could tell he was feeling good, as I felt pretty good too. I went to the gym for about an hour, after fixing breakfast for Jason, and then came back to the room. We did have lunch with the First Spouses of the United States (some of them are men, so it has to be said that way). Specifically, we were joined at our table by the wife of the Governor of Alaska, Sandy Parnell. She was a very nice lady who sat next to Jason and so we got to talk quite a lot with her. The First Lady of California wasn't there, so we didn't get to sit with her... wait a minute, Governor Brown isn't married, so there is no First Lady! Okay, so much for humor... Our time with Mrs. Parnell was quite nice, and she invited Jason and I to come up to Alaska to see all that they have to offer, for those who enjoy being in the great out doors.

Tonight was baked pork chops and vegetables, and then we just stayed back and relaxed. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers being sent our way.

  1. Surprisingly,Governor Jerry Brown is married to Anne Gust, age 52, lawyer. Guess he decided to settle down. Glad you got to have a great sleep last night and a wonderful luncheon!

    Praying for you.

  2. I still can't believe he's governor of CA again!
    Still here! Still praying!
    Psalms 36:5-7 Thy mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds. Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O LORD, thou preservest man and beast. How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
