What a wonderful birthday I had. Glenn and Kassi Bovard had a ranger ride for me first, then we came back to Glenn’s and had a cook out. Thanks to Kassi and Laurie Peters for the food and birthday cake and my great granddaughter Whitney Robinson for the cupcakes.

After we finished eating we went down to Glenn’s cabin, and Glenn and Jamie Peters had beautiful fireworks. Thank you so much for a wonderful evening I will cherish. I had 276 birthday wishes on Facebook and I read every one of them. It’s wonderful to have so many friends. Thank you to everyone.

While in Madison the other day I saw Denny and Mary Lou Bowman. I haven’t them in a number of years and they both look great. They said they had spent the winter in Florida. I sure was glad to see them.

At the bottom of Shell Hill on Bennington Pike there has been a beautiful flag pole erected with an American flag with a light on it. This is on Ken Booker Road and is in memory of the young man who gave his life in Iraq for his country. As you pass this may you pause and remember what he gave for his country and for you and me. Thank you Ken Booker, and may you rest in peace.
