RE: Now Daryl Dad....Today in the Garden

LOL!!!  Well, I like some of his reading material!  I love the Discover
Magazine and the Smithsonian.  And when we could afford it, I liked
Scientific American and Newsweek and the Wall Street Journal, too.  Wish
your dad were in better shape to help us with the congregation's Bible
School.  It's sort of a take-off on a biblical archeological dig site.
They've got me working on decorations and crafts for the children to do (up
to 60 little ones!)  We're going to stain  and decorate little wooden
treasure chests to put the daily "dig finds" in for safe keeping.  We're
making a crayon "tapestry" to be donated, making mosaic coasters as a few
other cute things.  Saturday, some of the youth are going to meet at the
church to create hieroglyphics down the classroom wing using an alphabet
converter I found on the web.  We've got "broken" pots and things we hope
look like what children might find at a middle eastern dig site, so his
knowledge of biblical archaeology would be a big help!  LOL!!!

Please wish him well for us, Daryl!  We're glad he's on the mend.

When I called a  few hours ago, he was doing pretty well. Of course with the
Lortabs, the pain is much less than it's been. My sister says he's been
using his walker w/wheels (Rollator) to avoid another fall. He had fallen
the day before, too, taking out a dining room chair. (That one must have
been spectacular- those chairs are Swedish, and pretty husky!) I hope the
doctors can quit arguing and get him on Fosamax and a lower dose of Coumadin

My sister said that he had a good breakfast and was reading, his favorite
occupation. That man reads like nobody you've ever seen. Time, Newsweek,
Scientific American, Chemical and Engineering News, Science and Theology,
Discover, The Smithsonian, more that I can't remember, the  WSJ, the local
paper, and always a couple of books going - geology, geography, natural
history, theological arguments, Biblical archaeology, obscure books on
particular bits of history that strike his fancy...
