Day 6

Still no word. Rescue crews were thwarted by the wind Friday and could not get their boats in the water. However, crews from three counties searched all day Saturday and part of the day today. It was windy again today. Rescue squads were also trying to recover the body of a fisherman who died in a boating accident in a nearby county yesterday. Three people lost their lives in that accident. Unbelievable. What a difficult job those folks have. They are volunteers who spend time away from their families to help folks in need of closure. They are using equipment that is very old, and they are poorly supported by the state and federal governments. The main boat for one county is a 1967 model. This is where budget cuts really hit home.


We are trying to pace ourselves. Teen Angel and I visited with my family today. It was a welcome break. We had a late Easter meal, and nothing says lovin' like Baby Ruth's ham. We also got a good dose of Special Delivery, who absolutely loves looking at himself.
He was good for the soul. A reminder that life is renewing, and that all is not bad. We are somewhat rested for the start of a second week. Keep praying for us.

Special Delivery is looking so much like a boy and not so much like a baby in that last picture. What a cutie he is.

Praying for you and your family, and will add the rescue crews, too.
