These last couple of days have been very wet for us, down here in San Diego. We must have gotten well over an inch of rain, and probably more than 2 inches. Considering the amount of rain that normally falls here, that's a lot. With that much rain coming down, I was not about to attempt to get out on my bike, though I wouldn't have anyway as I blew out my tire a few days ago, and have not yet gotten it repaired. For those that don't know, I ran over something that had a significant screw in it and it pretty well chewed up the tire, as well as the tube. Anyway, I wouldn't have been riding these last couple of days, mostly because of the rain fall. On the bright side, it did knock off a bunch of dust and dirt the vehicles had collected ... ;-)

Kojak and Jason are getting along very well now, with Kojak wanting to be sure he is with Jason, or at least being able to see him at all times. A couple of times we had to put him back in his kennel and within a few minutes he was yelping and barking, wanting to just see Jason. He really doesn't mind being in the kennel, as long as he knows Jason is near by - he is definitely Jason's dog. The concern I have is that it is causing Jason to be up more than he should be, and it is having a negative affect on the healing of his wounds. I told him today that we need to get in to see the Wound Care folks next week, because I didn't like what I was seeing. On the positive side, Jason hasn't noticed any additional discomfort, or pain, so I'm grateful for that.

The house is coming along and the good thing about where they are right now is that this recent rain isn't going to have too much affect on its progress. Most of the work now is inside the house, and aside from a couple of small places, it is pretty well water tight now. Well, the garage doors are still not installed yet, but the rest of the house is looking pretty good. Also, we have been given a date window for the completion of the house, and it looks to be around the end of August. This is good as that is also about the time when the girls will be going back to school, and that was a big concern of ours. That should make the transition a bit easier.

One of the other aspects of the house is that we are working with all of the finishing suppliers and it feels very close to being a finished product. We are meeting with a Fallbrook landscaper next week and Jason has had a good discussion with our new neighbor, Dan, about a shared fence as well as some ideas about how to fence the rest of the yard. There are so many more details that I don't think Jason ever thought about, and that just makes it all the more fun. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. Can the kennel be near Jason when he's lying down?
    What words of comfort. Praying right now!
    Psalms 139:17-18 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.
