Corbin & I went to see a play tonight called 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.' It was put on by a local theater group of young people. We tried to get Mason to go with us, but I guess he thought it was just too uncool to go to a play on Friday night with (gasp) your mom & young nephew.

Bo stayed the night in Gruver to work tomorrow. He has taken most of the week off this week to be at the hospital with his dad who has had pneumonia, and is waiting for a diagnosis on a tumor in his lung. The doctors took tissue for a biopsy earlier in the week, but it was inconclusive, so they will try again on Wednesday of next week. In the meantime, he went home from the hospital today and will go back next Wednesday. May the Lord's will be done in that situation, as I know it will be.

Anyway, the play was really good and the young actors did a great job. I was somewhat surprised that they did as well as they did. I don't know what I expected exactly, but just thought it would be more amateur-ish than it was, I guess. Corbin enjoyed it alot too, although I don't think he understood what was going on thru much of it. You had to really listen to follow the story, but it had alot of funny lines.

I talked to sister Glenda today. It's her birthday and she was doing well. Happy Birthday Glender! She is three years younger than me, but was always much tougher than me growing up. I was a big wienie and both my sisters could beat me up pretty easily.

One time Gendy took me for a ride on her dirt bike. (I should have known better). We were about 11 or 12 & 14 or 15 years old or maybe a little younger. I can't remember for sure. Anyway, it was just a little 50cc motorcycle, and we could both barely fit on it, so I was kind of hanging off the back. She started going pretty fast and I kept telling her to SLOW DOWN! Of course, she didn't listen to me and just laughed at me as she sped down the blacktop road. We hit a bump and, --you guessed it, I fell off the back. Dang, that hurt. I had road rash all over, and got up limping home. She came back and rode along beside me telling me to 'get on and I'll take you home.' I wasn't about to ride with her again and I was furious with her. 'No way and get out of here and leave me alone!' I yelled at her. I can still remember how mad I was. LOL. That night I couldn't sleep all night, I was hurting so bad. I had big oozing scrapes on both legs and on my arms. --And she just went on her merry way, unscathed.

Thanks alot, Gendy!

The point was, we were fixen to go over a big hump in the road and if you got up enough speed and kinda jumped when you went over it you would go up in the air bike and all. Instead of holding on and going with the flo you weinied up and got scared and fell off. You missed a great jump it was a blast. I'm sorry you fell off. If you would've gotten back on I would have been nice, I felt sorry for you. I would've gone slow and taken you straight home, no jumps or anything. Wonder why you would'nt get back on??? I really am sorry. If I had it to do over I would'nt have taken you there, we would've just gone for a Sunday afternoon drive...uhhhh I dont think so. Thats not my style. YOU (knew me)KNOW ME! :)
I really am sorry,
Love you,

It's just a funny memory now. You are forgiven.

I wasn't exactly the nicest sister around myself, and for that I am truly sorry too.

Love ya!

I am very sorry to hear this about Bo's dad. I will pray for his peace and comfort through this work that God is working out in his life. We don't know why things work out the way they do but I do know the Father and He will work it out.

I was a strong willed big sister. I apologize and hope I didn't leave any permenent scars (mentally or physically). I really have two great sisters and I am very proud to say they are MY sisters? I Love You both. I also have a precious little brother that has lots of problems. Please pray for him as the Father leads you. I love him too.
