Well, we worked all day on the apartment. We painted today. We are just doing the walls. The ceilings are fine. . . just the walls were bad. I don't know how two adults could get the walls so dirty in four years time. We don't work very fast. We take frequent breaks and also did lunch at the condo. And we quit at 4 p.m. That was enough for us, though. We have one room left to do. Then we will run the vacuum and I will mop the floors. We will call the carpet cleaners then and have the carpets done and it will be ready to rent!

Our new tenants have moved in across the street and seem to be happy in their new place. They are a young couple and very pleasant.

We did learn that one of our dear tenants, an elderly woman, has cancer and the prognosis is not good. Her husband died 15 years ago from cancer and she does not plan on doing as many chemo treatments as he did. She will try it but may not continue. She is doing radiation every day however. After her husband died, she eventually re-connected with a high school man she had dated. He also was widowed. They fell in love and married around ten years ago, I think. They are in their 70's now and I think theirs is a neat love story. She is facing a tough road ahead and she could use prayers. Her name is Libby.

We are here for three weeks and are anxious to see many of our old friends. If you are coming through, let us know and we can hook up for dinner or a campfire!

Till next time. . .
