||Belated thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes! My sister and another good friend treated Elton to a big steak at Applebee's and the waitresses there made over him big time! Right now he is eating yet another chunk of his birthday pineapple cake...looks like he loves it as much as LL loves Bluebell!!
I'm so sorry it's looking like we won't be able to attend the Gathering this year. We had really hoped to, after having to miss last year. But, for the first time ever, I am assigned to teach the FIRST term of summer school at the university, instead of the second term, as I've done in the past. That means, I'll be teaching ALL of June and not be out until first week of July. So sad.
