First, as I said, Ken is home. He spent a quiet night and is resting comfortably now. He watched TV – the taped Olympics that he has missed – and had a good supper before going to bed. Joy and I “tag teamed” for his pills during the night. Joy said he slept all night until she would wake him for pills; that is better than at the hospital when you get NO sleep because the nurses are always checking on you.
So, Monday was Norm’s birthday – we celebrated Sunday night, and then went shopping for some groceries Monday morning before he and Peanut headed home. I wanted to keep Peanut here but Norm said it would be better for her to go home with him. It would keep it quieter here for Ken – when Tasha and Peanut are together, they both tend to bark more. Also, I think Norm wanted her home so he wouldn’t be so lonesome.

Tuesday morning, Ken called to say that he was able to come home that day so Joy and Bill went up after lunch, expecting to have to stay until about suppertime. But at 3:00, in came Ken, exciting the girls very much.
So, that’s what’s been going on. Bitty is working on her loom – we’ve had problems with it but it’s getting closer to actual weaving. I am dressing my loom that I purchased from Deanna and the girls are helping me with that. They are also doing their schoolwork and housework.
Joy and Ken are resting in the bedroom. Ken is probably sleeping and Joy is knitting and keeping him company.
Norm will be back on Friday and then we will go home on Sunday. So, that’s the news from Lake Woebegone, where the women are strong, the men are good looking and the children are above average.
It is a beautiful sunny day and the temperature will be in the lower 40s. You have a beautiful day.
