Well, Doug and I totally missed Easter this year. We both had some viral thing which, for Doug, became pneumonia. We are blessed to have family that entertained our adult children fron Grant's Pass and made sure Easter happened without us.

This was not my worst Easter. 19 years ago on Easter, my then husband asked for a divorce. It's hard to top something like that.

I just finished reading Journey to Riverbend by Henry McLaughlin. What a great book! Good job Henry!
