Soooo Busy!

Well, I can no longer update via Opera on my droid. I updated it and now am unable to post. I have been very busy. I have been a part of the long term planning committee for our local k12 school system. I also find myself running for school board. A current school board member was after me for 6 months to do so. I did not know there were any openings. I stopped by she & her brothers saw shop and she got me going. I had people thank me for running....that was weird. I started out as a kinda reluctant candidate and now I guess I feel given my background I likely have the best background to represent the community, tax payer and the student. Four days after I filed papers 6 others filed. Two were refilers. So, I've got to make it through the primary and I might just manage it!!

Going on a mission trip to Biloxi, MS soon. It's surprising that there are still people displaced from there homes five years after the hurricanes.
