Sam has been without power for 3 days and is pretty well sick of it. Omaha had a big storm roll through and take out a lot of power lines. According to the news, 1700 people are still without power and Sam is one of them. She has the freezers closed tight and her fingers crossed that she doesn't lose the contents. Sam did sneak into the fridge last night for a little white wine- between the heat and the humidity she just couldn't take it anymore.
On the bright side, (and there's always a bright side), Sam and her kids spent the day at the Children's Museum doing art and engineering projects and checking out the new bug exhibit. We brought a picnic lunch and stayed 8 hours! Please pray that we get power back soon- Sam needs to do laundry! Have a great day, everyone!
Keith hopes that Zoom is feeling better, and that LIna's leg is cancer-free. He's glad that Dennis got some well-deserved time off from work, and that Sam's electricity has been restored. He also is happy to hear that Margo had a good time with her family. He raises a glass to Carol in celebration of her man making things "official".
Keith is also making a mental note to add snowblower servicing to his July "to-do" list, in an effort to scare away any snow that might consider making a home in KC this winter.
Keith rode his motorcycle over the weekend to visit family and celebrate a belated Father's Day, as his dad was out of town on business the previous weekend. It was a nice ride, although hot, and Keith very much enjoyed blazing through the Flint Hills of Kansas. He also enjoyed spending the weekend with family and friends.
Keith became an uncle for the 11th time yesterday, June 25th, as his little sister gave birth to her third child, Cailynn Elizabeth, who weighed in at a healthy 7lbs 8.5oz and 20.5 inches long. This brings the herd to 8 nieces and 3 nephews... we're planning a coup...
Keith started the preparations for getting his new windows installed. This involved removal of a flower planter that had been attached to the house beneath the office window by the previous owners. Apparently, the residents of said planter objected strongly to my plans for the relocation of their home to the trash bin. Keith received 2-3 bee stings. After a quick trip to the store for supplies, chemical warfare ensued. The bees did not fair very well in round 2. Planter relocation was successful.
