Well, considering how I started yesterday's post I felt I should follow it up with a little more information. I will be going to the folks here, at Balboa, who were directly responsible for establishing our travel, and check with them on what was or was not done. Of course I will have to wait until Tuesday, as tomorrow is an official government holiday, so those that are not impacted by the shut down (I think there might be as many as 7 civilians still working) will have the day off anyway.

Today was a nice day for us, with nothing to do except some laundry and shopping. Jason did want to go see Captain Philips, so we went to the early morning showing, and then on to Costco. The movie was good, I would recommend it to just about anyone. It gave a good portrayal of what happened, and even though I knew what happened, based on news reports, the suspense was still there. We went to the matinee, but only because the time slot was available, and we would have enjoyed it at a later showing as well.

Our visit to Costco was less exciting, though Jason did buy a new bed for Gracie (the dog) and perhaps I am only imagining things, but we seemed to have gotten in and out relatively quickly. They were very busy, yet moving people really well.

The girls are back with us tomorrow, so we should see them in the morning, though I don't know if I'll have to fix them breakfast. Doesn't matter though, we went to Costco and we have all the food we need in the house - especially breakfast food. Not sure what else we might be doing, as Jason sounded like he might want to stay down, so I might just walk the girls over to the park and let them play on the structures and burn off some of their energy that way. Not much else to write about right now, so I'll be signing off and in a short while, going to bed. Thank you, for all your continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. Hope you can work it out so you never have to go through that again!
    Lifting up prayers right now!
    Psalms 4:1, 7-8 Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer. (7-8) Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased. I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.

  2. I haven't commented in a while. Read by email every day.
    Thursday nights there is a dinner for Wounded Warriors an Parents at Balboa in the Liberty Center. There is a lady who works there every Thursday who would like to meet you and Jason. Ask for Moe, if you can make to the dinner one Thursday evening. I told her I would send you a message. The You Tube video on the concert page was great.
    You, Jason, and the family are still in our thoughts and prayers!

  3. Isaiah is filled with such great comfort! praying!
    Isaiah 40:28-31 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
