River D

I have become reacquainted, through myspace, with a girl that I went to school with. She lived around the corner from me and her name is Myrtie. She is the daughter of the well known c/w singer, Leon Payne. I haven't seen her for years. However, we have "commented" a few times on myspace and I follow her blog -- she is very big in the c/w music scene in the Hill Country.

In January her mother passed away. The same day her daughter announced her pregnancy -- I get the feeling it was a long awaited pregnancy. In any event, the baby was born a few days ago -- a little boy named River D. He arrived much too early -- 24 weeks. He weighs 1 lb. 8 oz. and is 14 1/2 inches long. Myrtie says his head is about as big as a tangerine. There are pictures on her blog -- he is really a cute little guy. Her reports are all good -- he is doing well He is getting help breathing but he is holding his own and all the news is good. He has a long way to go but, from the way it sounds, he is going to do well.

This family could use all the prayers that are available out there. He is doing well, under the circumstances, but he could always use a little help. So, please remember him and his family. They would really appreciate it.
Friday Fill-Ins

I love these things!

1. A smile is just a frown turned upside down! Cheesy!

2. Skipbo is my favorite board or card game.

3. I would love to have more time with my kids in my life and less tension.

4. When I think of the Summer Solstice I think of my junior high school friend, Delphine.

5. I just remembered I need to go to the cleaners.

6. One of my favorite song lyrice goes like this:

"There are places I'll remember,
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life, I've loved them all" Free Blinkies

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I am looking forward to going shopping and for a bite of dinner, tomorrow my plans include going to the shooting range and Sunday I want to go to church and then a trip to the airport to pick up the wayward travelers.
