June 24, 2015

A good day, again and we even had a visitor drop by. The girls went back to their mother's place and we'll see them again on Friday. Jason had an appointment with Wound Care, and things looked great there, so, aside from the continued soarness, things are going pretty good. It is probably going to be another few days (maybe a week?) before Jason is feeling like doing much more than he is right now.

The visitor we had was retired Master Chief, Fred Thomson. He is a gentelman we met a few years ago, when Jason went to go "turn wood." Fred, along with retired Maj. Gen. Tom Lighter have been running and building the turning program for the vets for several years now, and it shows just how good they are at helping these guys recover from the challenges of war and battle. Fred and Jason talked about all kinds of things, though it frequently returned to wood turning. I think Jason is thinking about setting up a turning lathe at his new house, as soon as he can get things together.

The rest of the day was just the two of us hanging around the house and doing our best to get some extra rest. Jason got the rest and I dealt with phone calls. A few of those calls were from Linda, and I'm always happyto  talk with her. Tomorrow Jason will be spending a good part of the day on his own, as I will be heading up to Fallbrook before Joselyn gets here. Heck, I might even be back before she arrives, depending on how quickly I can finish up there.

There is a new program called, "Buy a Brick," to help with the cost of the flag poll at Jason's house, and I am trying to get folks interested in at least looking at the program. The bricks cost $100, so they aren't cheap, though you do get your name in a very nice design, around Jason's flag poll, at the front of the house. That's part of what I'll be doing tomorrow, druming up interest. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. Know that I'm praying!
    Isaiah 53:11-12 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
