It was PJ's first creek experience.  He has so much fun when he comes to visit Grandpa and AJ.

Update on Linda (part 2)

One week after surgery.
My computer time is limited to about 5 minutes ad day due to shoulder and arm pain.
Thank you for all the kind thoughts and prayers.
GJ took me to the hairdresser for a shampoo this afternoon. 
A girl always feels better with a new 'do.  

Added later:
Yes, I am right-handed.  Recovery would have been a breeze if the surgery was my left shoulder. 
And: 
Blogger provides a pre-post setting, therefore, prior to surgery, I posted all the BHM tea tables to post daily. 

Tea Time With Berea Health Ministry — Good Books, Dear Friends and Tea


"Good Books, Dear Friends, and Tea!" was the second table sponsored by Joyce M. 
She has sponsored two tables for all three years.
