I will begin with an update on my sister who has a brain tumor. After treatment she continues to have MRI's and the first one show shrinking but they have not said anything but they have not gasp either. She feels well.
Dr John as he reported is feeling a little better.
I want to say something about the rose on Dr john's blog. I am so glad to see it bloom. Roses and I have a history. When I was at the parsonage I planted roses. I would follow all the instructions and I got one rosebush which grew for a number of years and never a bloom. I had another which was in the railroad garden and it was covered with buds but just before it would blossom the deer had lunch or the rabbits. I had a rose hedge and that was OK. I planted these roses in Neenah under protest. When we were in the store Dr John had the roses in his scooter basket. Pat's boys dug the holes and I planted them. We will see how they grow.
