Jim and his friend Carrie finally had a weekend off together and got to go on a river rafting trip on the Tieton River in Eastern Washington. He said they both had a great time. I don't know if Carrie has done this before but I think this is Jim's third time down a river. Carrie is the second one back from the front and Jim is in the very back right hand corner next to the guide (he's wearing sun glasses.) It looks like fun, but I don't think I'll be trying it anytime soon. My big river thrill, has been several jet boat rides up the Rogue River from Gold Beach, Oregon. I'd do that again in a heartbeat!
It continues to rain off and on here today. At least everything is getting a good drenching. We could still have warm weather into October, so this will help keep the grass on plants growing.
I got a call from my friend Ruth this morning. Her adult son, David, went thru treatment for colon cancer last year and now they have found nodules on his liver. He was able to go thru the last treatment phase, missing very little work. Now, he'll have to go thru testing and no doubt treatment again. Please remember David and his family in your prayers.
Until next time.....Linda
