Lightning strike


Bree kept telling me the house got struck, but she was laughing when she said it so I didn't believe it. But............a picture is worth a thousand words. and in this case, probably over a thousand bucks. we also lost the modem to the house computer, the overhead door lifter, the oven electronics and the dishwasher electronics.

bummer! but God is good, and no one was injured and a neighbor put the fire out.

I have always kind of marveled at how musical my grandkids are. Over the weekend, one of Larry's cousins passed away. it turns out Mildred, who never married and lived in Washington D.C. was a music copyright examiner at the Library of Congress, and had been active in music groups and did volunteer work at the Smithsonian. Who Knew? Well, I knew their aunt Sheryl played the sax and Grandpa Herman played the clarinet. Now I know the rest of the story.

Talented Grandkids

This is Madison singing for ISMA. She had already won a gold for her performance with an ensemble group. She won a silver with this solo performance. Morgan is playing for her. They both did a wonderful job.

okay, after watching the video, i must appologize for the sound. everytime i moved or anything else moved, the camera had to refocus. which was horrible for the sound track. soooorrrrrrryyyyyyy :)
