New Year's Day, January 1, and today were both kind of laid back. We stayed home yesterday, though I did get out for a short bike ride (very short, as it was less than 5 miles). With the terrain around here it is going to take me a few weeks before I will be able to get any ride in, of significant size.

Jason has been watching the Myth Busters Marathon, for the past couple of days. Some of the things they do are quite amazing, and on top of that it is very entertaining. With Jason staying in bed about 98% of the time, maybe a little variance but I think it is pretty close, he really hasn't been able to get out to do much. He would probably be out more, if his truck worked, but that won't be happening until later next week (I hope). The truck has been down for a few weeks now, and mostly it is because of schedule coordination, and then last week they were short handed. My guess is that with the holidays behind us we can get back to a more regular schedule.

Linda will be going over to Wounded Warrior, Sgt. Nick Kimmel's house, and she will be involved with some of the final set up and preparation of the house for dedication. She will be working with a couple of the other Blue Star Mothers and Chris from the Gary Sinise Foundation (not sure who else will be there), as they work to make the house look its best. They are going to be dedicating the house to Sgt Kimmel on Tuesday, right here in Fallbrook, next week. At this point, Jason is planning on going to the dedication, and I'll be doing the driving. The reality is that things happen, and we can never be 100% sure what we're doing, until we're doing it. Anyway, it should be a fun time, and especially for Nick, and his family. Thank you, for all your continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. Jesus went through it all for you! Know that I'm here praying!
    Isaiah 53:4-6 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

  2. We have hope because Jesus went through all this for us! Still praying so very, very hard for your family.
    Isaiah 53:7-10: He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
