Thank you for posting this! "Dandelion Wine" is one of my all-time favorite books, and I'm really looking forward to having it as an ebook. Three cheers! Wish I could get "Addie Pray" (aka "Paper Moon") as an ebook.

Thank you for all of your prayers and hugs. Things could not have gone better today. The weather was cool and sunny, a couple dozen of Dad's (and my) dear friends and relatives were there, and the pastor did a lovely service---reverent, but with some smiles and happy memories. I heard some stories about my dad that I hadn't heard, and it's nice to know that he was loved and remembered affectionately by so many. One former neighbor told me he came to her house to play Santa Claus for her children one Christmas, and that he was the best Santa she had ever seen. I was too young to remember, because that happened the year I was born, but I have two photos of him in his costume. I also recalled the wonderful outdoor Christmas display he built from scratch out of wood---a huge lighted lectern with a Bible on it, open to the Christmas verses in Luke. We only had it one season because we moved the next year, but it was a beautiful sight. So there was a little Christmas shared today.

Last night's winnings in the raffle and auction at the Elks Lodge: Waterpik Waterflosser, Art Gallery 10 jigsaw puzzles box, coupon organizer, crackers and cream cheese set (cream cheese, Wheat Thins, plate, and an apricot-chipotle spread), a set of stoneware salad/dessert plates in the Homestead Pantry pattern, and three 10-inch homemade pies (peach, apple, lemon meringue). They had an iPad Mini in the auction, in addition to a "buddy-bar," several afghans, two HUGE homemade ceramic bowls (one for salad and one for spaghetti), a handmade knife that was absolutely gorgeous, and lots of other stuff. I think the dinner helped our Lodge bring in quite a few dollars for our charity donations. We will find out on Tuesday exactly how much was made after expenses. The only expenses that are taken out are food and $75 for cleanup. Even the food expenses won't be much because our House Committee is frugal when they buy supplies and always seem to get a good price. It probably cost $3 to make each meal and the Committee charged $10.00 per meal. We did not have a lot of people this year (maybe 55), but at least we made $385 just on that alone. In addition, we probably made close to $2000 on the auction and raffle. I love to be a part of an organization where working together benefits kids.

She should have explained better. She puts the ground coffee inside of the shower head and then cranks the water as hot as it will go. So she's actually taking a shower in coffee!!!!! Talk about a great way to start the day!!!!!!

I'm glad to hear that everything went smoothly today. I've been praying for you.

Your dad made a great Santa!!!
