Recent happenings

Haven't felt much like blogging lately...
Went golfing at Northshore yesterday. Played 27 holes with some work associates... Mike & John... Northshore is a challenging course for me... That's because I "spray" the ball... and Northshore is pretty much tree lined fairways... Shot a 90...Had a nice chip in to save boggy and some nice shots along the way...
Today is special simply because tonight is agility training for Cub and Katie... Katie has a friend who is also doing the training with her black lab... Everyone is enjoying themselves...
Joan has been kept very busy taking care of her 86 year old mother and getting her childhood home ready to sell, quite a chore...I am proud of my wife... she is going thru her own struggles but is the most kind hearted woman I know and is going the extra mile continually to take care of things in her family!
When I contemplate the wonderfulness of my wife, I cannot help but think of the second half of Proverbs 31...

10 An excellent wife who can find?
She is far more precious than jewels.
11 The heart of her husband trusts in her,
and he will have no lack of gain.
12 She does him good, and not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She seeks wool and flax,
and works with willing hands.
14 She is like the ships of the merchant;
she brings her food from afar.
15 She rises while it is yet night
and provides food for her household
and portions for her maidens.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
17 She dresses herself [5] with strength
and makes her arms strong.
18 She perceives that her merchandise is profitable.
Her lamp does not go out at night.
19 She puts her hands to the distaff,
and her hands hold the spindle.
20 She opens her hand to the poor
and reaches out her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of snow for her household,
for all her household are clothed in scarlet. [6]
22 She makes bed coverings for herself;
her clothing is fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates
when he sits among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them;
she delivers sashes to the merchant.
25 Strength and dignity are her clothing,
and she laughs at the time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
27 She looks well to the ways of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,
and let her works praise her in the gates.
Joan is all these things and more! I am a lucky man!

Wednesday I start S H A R E ttraining... Sexuallity, Health, and Relationship Education.. It is three days of training and I will be getting up during the morning and being almost like normal people...Ha!

That's a lovely entry and you do indeed seem to be a lucky man. I bet Joan is a lucky woman too.

I saw your comment on my blog and wanted to let you know that I can't help you locate Paul Daniel's '3 bears' routine - but that you should check out pauldaniels.co.uk where the great man himself might be able to do so...
