Rainfall came heavy,
followed by crushing flood
that swept much away.

Luckily I live on a hill and was blessedly spared. Many neighbors flooded. Reports still trickling in of damaged experienced by friends, but nothing serious so far, thankfully. Quite a few businesses damaged. Surprisingly my local library, according to one friend, weathered the storm ok. I thought it was a little lower. Some interrupted services and the water in tap still a bit cloudy, but overall nothing too bad. Schools still closed, but the boys like that.

Joey helped cook dinner at his high school open house tonight. Culinary arts is one class he really seems to enjoy and do well with. Perhaps he will have a career in food. He sure is dashing, even in a chef's jacket.

Herewith shot of my parking assistant during the Greek festival. Granted, it was very hot.

A rather nice recent picture of me. Okay, that might be stretching it, but it is a pretty good one if I say so myself.


Herewith a shot taken from the LPP website that shows me at my desk, behind my monitor, with my sons' art on the wall behind me. There are also some molas (mostly just above my head), a nice silvered icon, and to the left is one of The Chicken Man's (Ernest Lee) creations, which I love. I own five of his pieces.

The boys joined their troop for a short canoeing excursion to Lake Murray. Here are a couple of pictures.
