Issues of the Day
At about midnight Friday morning, our youngest daughter and I will leave Fall River, MA with a two prong trip which takes us first to Joplin, Missouri followed with a journey to Phoenix, AZ.
Please allow me to express great pride in the goodness of Helene. Her mother and I are pleased beyond mere words in what she is doing for Joplin.
You may recall the terrible tornado which tore this blue collar town in half nearly three years ago. Most of the buildings including all the schools, hospital and numerous businesses and hundreds of homes were leveled.
Helene, has as part of her work (she is self employed), has been able to purchase at great discount and receipt of material from many she work for the benefit of Joplin schools. We are making the second delivery with one more planned for late summer, before school starts after the summer vacation.
This is the first time her good deed is being recognized publicly.
I look forward to meeting the folks in Joplin, who according to Helene, the people there are very thankful for the outside help they have received.
After a day in Joplin we will be off to Phoenix with an eye toward an eventual move there.
I will attempt to write from the road and post stories and pictures from the trip including the Grand Canyon, which is in full bloom now.
So please stop in here from time to time and write us about your thoughts about our trip. I will be using two new (to me) cameras.
If you have something you’d like us to post please feel free to contact us at: email@example.com
Ciao for now.
