Lunch today was supposed to be sandwiches and watermelon on some river shoals after paddling about an hour. The weather didn’t cooperate, so we drove back to town for Chinese, and of course, fortune cookies.

Lucy and Robert Whelchel’s fence on July 4th

Live bluegrass music played by a beaming grandfather and granddaughter

An African doctor, educated in Communist Russian, returning home to use years of experience working in war torn Eastern Europe to open a women’s health clinic

And so much laughter
